OPTIMUS PRIME is defined by his optimistic outlook and the care he feels for his comrades and those they protect. Though he may seem grim when contemplating the battle ahead, he looks always ahead to victory, refusing to contemplate the slightest chance of defeat. This attitude informs all that he does, and infects the other AUTOBOTS as well, leading them all to approach each fight with absolute confidence in their ability to win. It is, in turn, this that proves to be their advantage in each and every engagement against the DECEPTICONS, for in the face of superior numbers and fearsome weaponry, the AUTOBOTS never back down, never bend, and never break.

This guy definitely doesn't look as authentic as the leader class version in robot mode. I'll summarize a few of the bad points for the robot mode:
-The entire front end up of the truck to the roof of the windshield folds up and creates a bulky huge backpack looking feature on his back! The lazy design pretty much slaps you in the face here.
-The front end is re-replicated on his chest even though you can see the windshield from the truck mode on his back. Looks TERRIBLE and is obviously a very, very sloppy design.
-In several places, the figure has parts that sort of float freely. The shoulderpads that don't snap into place and the wheel covers that fold up on his feet come to mind.
-The weapons look fairly strange also. I've always traditionally seen prime with one cannon (even in the movie), but here he has two identical spring loaded guns.
Apart from these bad points, there are some good qualities:
I am very impressed with this figure even though i thought i was going to hate it. It is the most durable Transformer figure i own. It looks great in robot mode and has excellent articulation. He uses the smoke stacks from vehicle mode as guns. Prime transforms into a blue and red Peter Built truck. The vehicle mode is also quite nice. Both the robot and vehicle mode are very detailed. One gripe. This Movie Voyager prime is not tall enough by my standards compared to the other Transformers. So I will be purchasing the leader class optimus prime. The reason this will not hurt the rating is because this is a movie voyager and can only be but so big.
This Prime is the best Voyager class figure in the 2007 line and the second best toy in the '07 movie line behind leader Brawl. His vehicle mode is a mostly accurate Peter built truck with a neat little guy that disappears when you open the driver side door. In robot mode he looks great with his smokestack weapons and although he has a huge and cumbersome looking backpack it is actually quite manageable. Articulation is nice but be careful of the panels on his legs as they may come off during transformation. However, anything that falls off can easily be put back on so he is a great gift for younger collectors.
Bottom line, I recommend this figure as the best Prime made in the 2007 movie line.
