If your child loves transformers he will love this toy.
D. Hersha
The plastic pieces feel like they're about to snap; what's worse, it takes quite a bit of pressure to get the various transformations to "stick."
Adam
Its robot form, truck mode, and transformation are all extremely detailed and designed to look just like the movie version.

I've been collecting transformers since I was a kid and if there's one thing I've ALWAYS hated about the toys up until now, it's that the product never accurately matched up with the character on the screen. Now, keep in mind that back in my day, things like what we see in CGI films like Transformers weren't at all possible...but Takara Tomy finally broke that depressing streak with THIS figure. This has got to be the most impressive example of planning upon planning for a perfected design that features an extremely complex transformation (at first)- but after the first few times you get the steps down pretty easily (only took me a few days). If you compare the 2007 model/version of this figure to the newly redesigned 09' model- you'll see a SIGNIFICANT difference in character comparison. This IS Optimus Prime, not just some inaccurate toy, it's so close to the CGI character that I don't see any mistakes in the design- if anything it's PERFECT. Every detail matches up with the CGI design so well that it's just AWSOME! The toy is durable, AND when you transform it, parts don't rub against each other and mess up the paint job- which i know some perfectionist collectors ABSOLUTELY hate. Buy this figure, because I honestly don't think you'll ever find another TF product this close to character/toy accuracy! BUT, i will say this- if you're a real collector and you want character/toy accuracy...go with the Takara Tomy version instead of the Hasbro version. The Takara Tomy version's name is RA-01 Optimus Prime and you can find him on the web in plenty of online stores. Get that version, because if you look closely you'll see that it's paintjob is actually correct while Hasbro's model has some of it's parts painted red instead of silver- don't settle for that lol. Mkay, well- happy hunting and have fun with this product!

When I first spied leaked photos of this figure, it was difficult to imagine they could make such a toy transform tightly into the truck that we all know. This one must be seen (or better, physically handled) to be believed! The transformation is amazing, and more intricate than anything before seen in the movie lines (and probably in any Transformers line, actually, 'cept perhaps some of the Masterpieces).

Plastics seem to be a little better than the first movie Prime, and the paints are finely done as well. Super poseable and stable. Parts are easy to pop-off, but pop back easily as well (which if you accept, puts the durability to at least 4 stars). Sounds are improved, with a line from Peter Cullen this time round. And the best thing? It's probably as movie accurate as possible, short of making a bigger toy!

Negatives? Well, the wheels are now plastic (not rubber), and have a habit of going out of line in truck mode. The fingers/thumb are no longer articulated. The head doesn't really look up (mainly side-to-side). The Transformation will test most adults, let alone children! And the way some pieces pop-off may be annoying to some buyers.

Despite the negatives, though, this is one amazing figure, and can be very highly recommended. If you only get one Revenge of the Fallen figure, then make it Leader class Optimus Prime!

This is truely the figure to get out of all of the Transformers ROTF toys. Brilliantly reimagined with a painstaking transformation not recommended for children under 10 years. Also the lack of pin and hinge support is apparent when parts suddenly pop off but can just as easily be put back on. Also the fingers are not articulated like the last one and it has plastic tires. But these are very minor flaws considering the accuracy of the robot/truck mode. All I can say is that this IS the definitive, though pricier, movie leader class Optimus Prime. Go through amazon, they are a very trustworthy organization for things like these. They find the very best possible in terms of quality and steadfast service. Those are the values that I found anyway. the toy iteself is approximatly 13' inches tall, slightly taller than the last film's Optimus Prime. Very detailed with a really cool gimmic called "Mech Alive". That means that they have incorporated very good design features to where actual moving gears that would normally be seen in their films counterparts, are found in the figures themselves. Improved animatic strips away the separating windows, pop-up head & space laser noise, with something more refined. With chest piece pushed down, his torso moves with startling realizm as if he were talking a deep breath to say a simple line, "I AM OPTIMUS PRIME" in Peter Cullen's actual voice no less (Peter Cullen is Optimus Prime for those of you who don't already know that). Stop reading this review, and just get it! 10++++++ A++++++++ (CRANK'S THE KNOB TO ELEVEN)

First thing I want to mention is the posted age limit of 5 years for this toy. This figure is tricky to transform, and a lot of kids would probably have trouble with it. 5 may be too you, maybe somewhere around 9 or 10? For younger kids who want a movie Optimus Prime figure, I would recommend the smaller, less expensive Voyager class figure... although not as impressive, he is simpler to transform. Or maybe the CyberStompin' Optimus?
But back to Leader class Optimus Prime.
I own several Prime figures, including the first release of the Masterpiece Optimus Prime... and even that figure is easier for me to transform than this guy. But still, this figure is one impressive transformer. He looks good in both modes.
As a robot, he does an amazing job of capturing the likeness of his on screen counterpart, more so than any other figure, with probable the exception of the Robot Replicas line.
He has a good range of movement (arms, legs, feet, knees ankles and wrists), but does lack a turning waist... oh well. A very minor flaw.
But again... he just looks amazing! I look at this guy, and I still am surprised that he can transform into a semi truck as many of his truck pieces as so well hidden. Although he does suffer from a good amount of kibble on his back, but it's not horrible.
As a robot, he has two gimmicks: first, you lower this tab near his waist and press it down. It causes his chest to move up, the gears inside of it to move a bit, his lights light up (including eyes), and you can hear a recording of him saying "I am Optimus Prime" (possible Peter Cullen himself doing the voice?).
Second, he has his two extending battle blades from the film on each arm. There are buttons on the inside of each arm that when flipped, release the blades.
