Nah, they just advertised the worst part of it. You can argue about the white deco not being great, but his small robot mode beats out G1 Optimus just on account of being able to hold his gun properly. His car carrier mode isn't anything to sneeze at either, because unlike 90% of Transformer alt-modes even today it actually does something. And as far as looks go, Optimus Prime can't hold a candle to Ultra Magnus when he's got three or four Autobot cars loaded onto his trailer.

The problem is that every fictional representation he got emphasized his super-robot mode and how awesome it was, setting an entire generation of kids up for disappointment.
