Cybertron is a floating hunk of screap, centuries of war have devastated the world and sent millions of Autobot and Decepticon soldiers to the junkyard. The evil Megatron and his Decepticons use the shell of a planet to plot their assaults against the Autobots. Their latest weapon? Dark Energon! Megatron surges with its unbridled, vicious power, ready to conquer the universe. But Optimus Prime and his Autobots will not go down without a fight - they're fueled by the same righteous and pure Energon that powered the Golden Age of Cybertron!

Remarks: Rage over Cybertron Optimus Prime is a repaint of War for Cybertron Optimus Prime, so just a few short words on the differences here. RoC Prime has no structural differences to his predecessor, though some parts (chest plate, shoulder pads, some truck parts) were switched from solid red-painted plastic to slightly translucent red plastic. Also, paint highlights that were purple on WfC Prime were replaced with yellow highlights and we got quite a few additional yellow highlights (especially in truck mode) that are supposed to show Optimus "aglow" with pure Energon, I guess. His legs and head are a slightly lighter shade of blue, too. All in all, though, it's the same figure, just with a slightly different look.

WfC Prime was an excellent figure and if you missed out on him (and his United counterpart), this is a good way to get your hands on this very good figure. While I personally don't particularly care for the 'Energon veins' on this guy, it doesn't really hurt him, either. So bottom line: you should own at least one version of this figure. Which one is, of course, up to you and availability.
