I'm looking forward for clear HD pictures of that 2007 Leader Optimus.
Even though the toy is flawed and not movie accurate at all, it's a great toy by itself and well worth owning.

Honestly, any collector who don't own the mold already should consider this release. Merely for the added pizazz of a special edition.

I'm glad this figure's getting a bit more love. It's not really movie-accurate, but it's still great. This is the one that got me back in the game after mistakenly thinking that I was too old for such things. I have definitely changed my tone now.

The robot's pretty cool but the truck is just so solid and heavy. It's awesome.

It should have been sold this way in the first place. Do i dare say double dipping or triple dipping? These transformers should have been sold in their premium versions right out the gecko and Optimus Prime should always be sold with a trailer. Its crazy that the trailer is being sold separately on certain versions and by third party vendors. I stopped buying transformers years ago being we are getting the shaft nowadays and the high expense is phenomenal.

Fellow Seibertronian MaverickPrime has alerted us to a review of the Transformers Tribute Optimus Prime & Orion Pax Evolution pack! The set features the deluxe War for Cybertron Optimus Prime with a new deco, and a unique version of Orion Pax: A retool of Titans Return Kup! Chefatron's review itself has comparisons between Optimus Prime to the original version of the mold, and Orion Pax with Animated Cybertron Mode Optimus Prime and Thrilling 30 Orion Pax.

Check out the video embedded below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!

I kinda want that Orion repaint but I don't need a second Linebacker Prime. Is the WfC OP deco any different?


Do we know where this set can be found?

MaverickPrime, think you can give us the product code for this? It should be where the bar code is on the box.

Is this set going to be sold in stores? Or just online retailers?

I don't really agree.

Ok, it's absolutely not screen accurate. At all.


But it's his only issue. As a toy, it's a good toy, from the ratchet joints era, which doesn't feel hollow at all etc.

It's not like it's the first time we get a good toy not screen accurate.

Why?

He's not 100% screen accurate sure but he's a decent toy for what he was back in 2007.

Maybe not $89.90 decent but still well worth a regular purchase. $40 to $50 bucks worth easily.

That Leader Prime is the only Movie Prime I own (well, OK, I have EMOP, but...) and while I'm not a movie fan, I adore that toy. It is a cool symbol of the switch in design from the Cybertron line to the first movie toys. It's design carry's over so many things that make the Cybertron toys great toys.
It may not seem great to the die hard movie fans, but if you are a fan of how well designed toys are made, it's a magnificent toy.

nope probably one of the worst for Canadians.
You have to deal with the exchange and duty fees and the very expensive shipping so far were you I would wait to see if some Asian eBay stores have this instead. That was the best way to get some of the platinum sets.

I agree completely. Also, RUBBER TIRES!
I own the Premium version so I've no need for that one. Still, anyone who is not rigid in their TF collecting habits and want some oddballs here and there, that leader OP is a solid purchase.

I've got an entire shelf of oddballs, might as well add another :-P well, that's assuming it isn't more than a kidney and 3 fingers.

Still, THAT particular edition is a clear luxury. The original can be found for cheap and even the shinier Premium version is reasonably priced.
