And this, linked for size.

I believe these are the first full images to show up, everything previously was just from solicitations or previews. The shield seems a bit silly, but I do like the Stealth Force mode it makes. Now I'm just curious how accurate the paint there is to the final product, the red toes aren't very promising.

Looks pretty cool. Very creative use of everything.

Another one at the link below:

I like the red, the gray, and the blue on him. The gun is cool, but the shield is strange (I was hoping for movie accuracy) and I'm disappointed his paint job isn't a little more elaborate.

The Stealth Force mode is kind of neat, and puts an interesting twist on this figure.

I love the crazy Mad Max truck mode.

How is this mold? Some people say it's horrifically overcomplex, some people say it's the best toy ever. Will I hate it if I'm not a huge fan of the Battle Blades voyager mold?

I love the mold. I think it's great, but it does take a long time to get used to transforming it (as it's complex). I no longer find it difficult to transform, but I have 6 versions of it (I believe).

Chip, if you don't like BB Prime, I imagine you won't be in love with this one either...I don't have a RotF leader Prime in any iteration, but by all accounts BB Prime is a more manageable version of the larger toy.

Also today is the first time I've seen this particular Prime. Love it. I hope Hasbro picks it up. I can't tell if he still has his blades, though. Seems like he would.

If he has the modified forearms included with Jetwing Optimus he won't (which I imagine he does have).

Very nice... I don't have much in the way of Movie Primes (Burger King and a Legends "night" redeco), but this looks like one of the ones to get.

How is it that this updated Leader mold still hasn't been released outside of Japan? And this is already the second Japanese release of this mold! Jeezus!

Because we've already gotten our yearly allotment of three leader molds per movie line.

It's just a new rib-cage anyway.
Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

I might be wrong, but I think there's a new knee-cap-blade thingy as well??
