I hate to say it, but I might have to invest in the movie premium line. :-(

The only thing I like about that figure is the sword, but I'm not going to buy that figure again just so I can have the sword.

Idk I might get him but 40 is a little steep for just a new head and sword.

The head is LAME!
It looks more like Frank from Donny Darko than Movie Prime.
The sword is nice, a shame these won't make it to Germany.

I can see it coming now. people will be buying this toy, then putting their original Movie Leader Optimus Prime in the box, and returning it. Just wait and see.

That is an awesome idea!

Seriously, if this is what Hasbro is going to do then we might as not buy any wave one toys for the next movie and just wait for Premiums.

Crap. I like the sword enough to consider investing in this line, but I don't want to ;_;

Someone save me from myself ;_;

All this premiuw crap sucks, Hasbro should've gotten it right the first time. Also when are we getting Leader Class Bonecrusher, i thought we were supposed to get four leader class figs from the movie(?)

I agree they could have saved themselves the trouble and released Premium Prime first. Skip Nightwatch and original. Also, Desert Brawl is useless. I'd buy a Voyager Bonecrusher and Wreckage.

As for the whole gun arm vs. sword arm, they changed that in the movie at the last minute (the early script, comic and novel all have gun arms on Prime), so I'm guessing they designed the first toy back then, and didn't have time to change it for the first release.

The head looks a lot better than I expected, it gives him even more of a warrior appearance. A new weapon, better paint apps, and the addition of the transformation sound is worth it to me.

I see some shelf space that he will fit into nicely.

if they'd given him blue lights instead of yellow, I'd buy him no question, but I'm still on the fence about this one.

Don't like the new head and disappointed with the sword. I do like the transforming noise when the head pops up, though...
