New Vehicle Mode of Optimus Prime Revealed (Updated)

Yesterday who got a look at two new Autobot vehicles and now we have the new look at another one. According to MichaelBay.com, the image to the left is "The completely upgraded, custom-built Optimus Prime from Western Star (a subsidiary of Daimler Trucks North America)." Hi-Res images of the cars can be found on Flickr stream.

Update: Below is the same image but modified by Jeffrey Marshall of Pixel Rally so that it is less "sepia-toned." The result is the colors of Prime really pops out. While still not a big fan of the flames, I do like his Transformers Prime-like shape.

  1. I wonder how different Optimus will look now and if Bay kept the same formula of every piece having to be able to transform realistically

    1. well I don't think he'll look that much different from the last three movies since his vehicle mode looks just like a more modified version of his previous V.M.

  3. Optimus Prime is now a flamboyant extrovert. That looks ridiculous, certainly not something a space faring hyper-intelligent leader of galaxy saving robots would look like. Are the going for toy sales? is this the direction of the franchise? Is this going to be the Batman & Robin of the Transformers saga?
