ROTF Leader Class Optimus Prime toy info

Posted by:
Sabrblade at 2009-01-02 10:20 am has the first image of the upcoming ROTF Leader Class Optimus Prime toy. It is a new mold figure that is supposed to be visually more movie-accurate than the Leader Class Optimus Prime toys from the first movie toyline back in 2007.

The features it is said to have include the following:
* Double Snap Out Energy Swords
* Electronic Speech
* Light Up Eyes and Chest
* Engine Revving and Truck Racing Sounds
* Automatic Conversion Sounds
* "Mech Alive" gimmick (which might be similar to Automorphing)

To see the image, click here, then click the image, then click "Open", and the image will view in its full size.

Okay, that is MORE than one difference than the 07 version.

Who said there would be only one difference?

Looks like I'm buying a new Prime.

So this Prime practically went beast machines style huh? Anyway I'm sure they're gonna recolor this fig into a nightwatch or something. This might however explain why Jetfire is getting a new Prime to combine with instead of adapting to the old. At least the accuracy thing gives them an excuse for giving double function.
On an unrelated note I opened my universe Ratbat and Springer. I wanna know what you guys think of the two Target Universe two packs.

I am really interested in a more movie accurate Prime for ROTF. I really like my Leader class Prime from the first movie but I have to admit it is very easy to see where it deviates from the movie (for obvious reasons though, it is hard to replicate a 10,108 part model into a toy of this size) and if they can do one that looks even closer then I am psyched.

I have to admit, I am intrigued by this new Prime figure and I will likely get him.

I picked up that particular two-pack not too long ago. Outside of my constant complaint that Hasbro has this unintelligable embargo against making Springer a triple changer, I think its a pretty good set. It speaks a lot to the sculpt of Ratbat (Cybertron Sideways) that you can do him in bright purple and he still looks intimidating.

The leader class Optimus Prime that came out at the beginning of the first film was one damn fine toy. It'll be awfully difficult to improve that. Can't wait to see more of what they came up with! Outstanding!

hopefully it will look more like the G1 optimus prime without all that exposed machinery like in the first movie

Wow...thanks Tramp! That is one impressive looking Optimus Prime!

I don't think that they mentioned ALL of the differences... (nudge, nudge)

BIG FLAW: the arms stick out waaaayyyy too much. anyway,it will probably look waaaayyy better in person, just like how the original leader classes product image looked like crap.while the actual toy looked better.
