If hasbro would have released Classics optimus prime as an deluxe class figure that figure would have become this.

I like that it reminds me of Machine Wars Optimus. I always pictured that toy as a younger Prime.

This is phenomenal. I really appreciate how it looks like his robot form could actually transform into the vehicle. But my favorite element is the head. Not only is it instantly recognizable as Prime, it's clean lines and curves really do emphasize a sleeker, younger version of the original. Thank you for sharing!

Don't you mean "Orion Pax?" He didn't have "Prime" in his name until he, you know, actually became a Prime...

this reminds me so much of the TFA optimus, probably because this one is younger

I wonder how this will work with the events of #22 forward and all.
Handwaved as a "newly repaired" look? Chose to have a more pedestrian look as he was no longer a police officer? Either way its cool. I really, really like the vehicle mode.

This is very very impressive. I know that you have created some of the absolute most perfect Furmers out there, being the god of TF designs and all, but this just takes the cake. I don't understand why HasTak doesn't use MORE of your ideas. I would pick this up in less time than it takes to sharpen your pencil.

Is Optimus possess mouth and nose in his younger version? I thought his lower nose and mouth area are always covered with mouthguard piece or something since birth.

Very nice pics. I like this :)

As much as I love the Dreamwave "Optronix" design, this one is pretty cool too. I guess it makes more sense that his design evolution would be more drastic like depicted in the IDW comics.

Now If we can only get a design of Zeta Prime, and no I don't mean "Sentinel Zeta" Prime I mean Zeta Prime, the two are still two different bots to me...(even though its never stated if Sentinel was killed in Megatron Origins).

Oh but wait, I thought he was ORION PACKS! lol old joke for those who watched the old cartoon.

But this is cool. As I've said before, I think most Autobots should not be warriors but kinda drafted against their will because no one else could fight the Decepticons. Kinda like most people during the American Revolution! :) Prime could be like George Washington!
