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!
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.Read more ›
