Yeah, like, this already super-powerful weapon? Let's make it stronger, instead of giving Megatron actually useful powers he doesn't already have like stopping time or teleportation or super-speed.

Your RPG Doomshot is straight-up Beast Wars Megatron, which makes him automatically cooler than the dude he's bonded to.

Cybertron Optimus Prime is awesome! I don't own one, but man, it does look like a pretty awesome toy. But I think Warcry's point is that, short of the Masterpieces, there aren't any good modern redesigns of G1 Optimus Prime in the Generations/Classics/Universe whatever toylines, whereas all other important characters already got those.

We've had a lot of great Optimus Prime over the years, just none of them that are G1: Armada Deluxe Optimus Prime, Cybertron's Leader Optimus Prime, Prime's First Edition Optimus Prime, the Movies have ROTF's Leader/Buster Optimus Prime and 2010's Battle Blades Optimus Prime, all of which are super-amazing toys, not to mention Optimus Primal toys that are released in between all that. Just, y'know, none of them represent the G1 Prime.

But then I'm a huge hipster who prefers the Movie, Animated, Prime, Beast-era and even Unicron Trilogy versions of Optimus Prime to the original. So, uh, it's not something I'm particularly bothered with.
