    @themoviefanatic looking more into it and concept art of this design. He looks like a Samurai in this movie and that speaks a lot now to me seeing in the previous movie Optimus is a brawler sure but he would always be like a gunslinger vibe from those designs, here he looks like a more combat ready now when you look at it like he is going to fist fight or sword fight from what I'm getting now.

    @monkeyiron2-0 Well, He looks cooler. I don't know about menacing though. Maybe he'll be more menacing to the Decepticons in Transformers 4, then he was before in the previous movies, lol :P .

    @monkeyiron2-0 Well, Maybe they've made some changes for Optimus Prime in Transformers 4, considering that there was going to be a whole new redesign of a lot of the autobots and decepticons in Transformers 4 ?

    @themoviefanatic yea like I said it can't be the final product as Optimus on the TF3 had like a 6 pack going on

    @monkeyiron2-0 He'll probably look even cooler in the movie, then he does on that magazine cover.

    Okay it took me a lot to think about this new look for Optimus. First, the geek in me went all sparatic on the new design saying best design in history yadda yadda yadda. But is a took a good 5 minute look at the design I've came with the conclusion that I am okay with this new design I mean its not the best or the worst, but it is the most decent to accept. He looks to menacing and to much of a deception if anything; I mean his iconic colors red and blue seem a little more faded, and I understand they trying to make him look more a warrior in this new design but he looks to much like a deception. I don't maybe this isn't the final product or what seeing in TF3 Prime had abs until he got more of a exposed rib cage who knows

    Never cared for the look of the Transformers in these films! The best look for Optimus Prime will always be his cartoon look from 1984!
