Takara Tomy Leader Class "Optimus Prime" AD01

I like the graphic design of the new packaging.

Optimus Prime looks great in semitruck mode. The colour application is good especially the parts with chrome finishing.

I guess the transparent yellow windows are to enhance the overall colour for the front part of the truck. The fuel tanks are not chromed completely as one part is painted in blue.

The rear light panel and chrome stacks look realistic. They are well sculpted.

You can even find Autobot symbol sculpted on the center of each wheel..Nice work!!

The mould of this vehicle is based on one of the truck models manufactured by Western Star.

I don't like to attach the Vector Shield at the rear of the truck as it looks weird to me. The Sword of Judgement is hidden underneath the truck (Please click here to see pictures of Optimus Prime in robot mode).

Watching the movie and seeing this review is truly inspiring. The quality made a good collectors' piece. Still I must repeat "My name is Optimus Prime". Hehe...

This version is better than the first Edition OP of the AOE in many ways. Good buy bro!

Yes Leon,the first one is taller and bigger but to overall quality and visual, this one looks much better.
