Wasn't this thing warming the shelves at dollar general for like 5 bucks including Megatron?

That "backpack" thing is actually pretty accurate to certain episodes of the show. There's 2
(IIRC) episodes where Optimus (and maybe other characters?) has a different character model,and he has the backpack.

Hmmm you may be right. I was just thinking that they were trying to work around the spinning mechanism which caused the strange shape, but that darn black button looks so strange.

nice comparison

I have to say, for years I've been waiting for an ideal G1 Optimus, though some models are more detailed than others, i cant find one that really does it for me, and though i would have loved to get a new G1 Optimus instead of my extremely old one I've had since i was a kid, the one that's appealed to me recently is the War for Cyberton Optimus, looks pretty cool in both vehicle and robot mode.

PS: Love that last comparison pic between the two models, the one in the back seems very dark and evil, especially since you cant fully see his face, nice job.

thanks, yeah I pretty happy

thanks, yeah I pretty happy with the way it came out. It wasnt on purpose beacuse I am using a makeshift setup for photos so I wasnt able to get the look I originally wanted, but the last shot came out nice and evil

Yeah, this guy was fun to

Yeah, this guy was fun to play with, but he's a horrible truck. Love the gun, though! I only ended up with 'em because he came in the two pack; I bought that sucker for Megatron!

Wait, isn't this TakaraTomy's

Wait, isn't this TakaraTomy's repaint of the OP from the Classics toyline G2 Optimus VS Megatron? I heard a lot of negative things about that toy.

If it's the one that Alexx is

If it's the one that Alexx is talking about, probably. I also have this mold in another release that came with a window flap called the SE -01. Doesnt have as many paint apps as this though.

Yup, that's the one I was

Yup, that's the one I was talkin' about! Much plainer looking than the one reviewed here, but the same mold. The spinny torso always cracked me up, but I don't pay the figure much mind because of the classics version awhile back. Still my favorite Prime.

Isn;t...

Robot master Optimus prime aka 2 pack optimus prime aka Craptimus prime aka Optimus Crime (for making the toy)? The cab mode is ugly...

love the robot mode

this thing is gorgeous...
the colors are awesome, but the mold is decent too.
really wanted to see a new prime other than movie prime( don't like it!!)
the Classics one is cool, but this one look more accurate..
this one and War for cybertron are my favorite primes for now....
