Mighty Jaxx had given us a Soundwave bust featuring him all blinged out and being a DJ. And now we get a new bust from them for Optimus Prime, which they recently revealed on Facebook. Unlike Soundwave, Optimus here looks very different from his G1 self. This is because it comes from designer Clogtwo who lends it his iconic Mechasoul style. This is where the innards of a famous character are revealed to be machine. But in Optimus's case, this is already the case. It is available for preorder now at www.mightyjaxx.com for the price of $359 (shipping included).

I would pay for a line of figures with this aesthetic as long as they can still transform. This is a really sweet new take on O.P. This is what I would have envisioned Transtech to be...

It looks a darker version of the Animated design.

For me, a bust is.... a bust! :lol:

I never understood the appeal even cince they were a thing in Antiquity. I want to see the WHOLE body in scupture.
This make looking at this bust frustrating because the whole Optimus may be BEEF and BAD-ASS as hell!

Agreed... Although I don't think I need the whole body sculpted... But usually when I see busts done of almost any character, they're cut-off to where it looks awkward.
But that Prime does have a cool aesthetic.

Way better than DJ Baby Soundwave...
Huge head, small body, and stubby arms... Sweet.

When I first saw the bust I was going to go look for a picture of one of these, but you beat me to it. This isn't for me. I don't mind redesigns, but this doesn't scream "OPTIMUS PRIME" to me. For starters it looks evil, I would have a hard time believing this was a noble, heroic leader. Second, it's a bit generic. Yeah, it's neat looking, but remove the obvious OP stuff like the antennas, stacks and windows (especially the last two which look tacked on) it could really be any bot. Paint it white and it's a new Gundam, paint it black and it's a new Gigantor.

And what's with the floppy disk on his shoulder?

with all of the details being black. the damage and aging lines also black muddy it up. and the disk on the shoulder has to go.

Honestly...? I think it looks like the ugly hate child of a football jock and mutated TMNT Casey Jones. It shares none of the qualities of nobility of Optimus Prime and if someone gave this to me I would probably have to bury it in the backyard of a church graveuard in case it came with some sort of cybertronian satanic curse.

But, like, that's just my humble opinion :)

It looks like Prime would have some kind of creepy skeletal face if you pulled that mask down. Bludgeon Prime?
Optimus Prime pfft, more like an Evangelion unit.

I dig the look! While it may seem a little too similar to the Battle Mashers and some details look odd like the Autobot insignia looking fairly incomplete and the floppy disk (which is based on how he returned in the Marvel Comics), this design needs more than a bust but a full body! Feels refreshing to not have an Optimus design that looks like the Evergreen one (even though that design's pretty good, too)

All I can say is what are they thinking. It looks like a bad KO.

This is NOT MY OPTIMUS. LOL. Seriously, this looks terrible. Anyone else out there remember the old early 1990's animated TV show from channel MTV called "THE MAXX"?! This reminds of that for some reason. Maybe its the face. :HEADHURTS: [-(
