    There have been many versions of optimus prime through the years. In the past 10 years or so hasbro and takara have stepped up their efforts in producing great transformers. Optimus always has to be on of the best made and for good reason, he's the most popular. Out of the list above, which optimus prime action figure do you think is the best?

    Is this even a contest ? Masterpiece all the way.

    Then, there's a loooooong space followed by Classics.

    Isn't the 2007 Movie Voyager the exact same as the Target Exclusive "Robo-vision"? If so, I think they only have minor variations. But that one is definetely my favorite. I got my first set of Transformer toys today. Robo-vision OP and Leader Megatron. Megatron is easily one of the coolest toys I have ever got. He is so intimidating.

    One should point out for those who don't know - The Revoltech one doesn't transform.

    i'd pick revoltech but it can't transform.

    masterpiece, then by default.

    LOL, Energon Optimus is a fatty. :D

    Anyway, Masterpiece is definitely the Cadillac of Optimus Prime figures. Too bad that at $80-100 he's beyond what I can justify spending on a toy. It'd be sweet to have him and Masterpiece Megatron sitting on my bookshelf, but if I did that I think I'd be graduating a bit later (college doesn't pay for itself). :(

    that's actually a really nice deal.

    $65 is reasonable. However, I know that Masterpiece Megatron could not be that cheap since he never even got an official US release, and never will, so long as that stupid toy gun law exists. And 20th Anniversary / Masterpiece OP would get lonely without his arch nemesis. :(

    I've got R.I.D., I just cant find all those extra pieces that make him look better. I'm gonna have to go with Masterpiece.

    True, but for about $80 I can get movie leader Optimus Prime and Megatron (who can be repainted). Certainly not as glorious a prize as the Masterpiece versions by any means, but for me, it's a lot easier a pill to swallow than spending up to $240 (or more w/ shipping) on two action figures, no matter how awesome they are.
