To the date of this post, the FWI-3 makes the Leader Class Optimus Prime true to its movie rendition without need much work or customizing the original Leader Class Optimus Prime of ROTF.
JetFire and Optimus Prime getting ready for combination.
One of the main reason getting both Leader Class Optimus Prime and Leader Class JetFire is both Leader class toy can combine to form Powered-Up Prime. Contrary to the combinati0n, in the Revenge of the Fallen (ROTF) movie Powered-Up Prime is form after JetFire sacrifice himself to allow its body to beef up Optimus Prime weaponary and giving flight capability to Optimus Prime in the ROTF movie climax.
Regardless of TakaraTomy or Hasbro version of the toy, both is able to be combined without issues.
One compound word to describe JetFire in the Transformers : Revenge of the Fallen movie, Old Geezer. In the movie JetFire was a former Decepticon and grew tired of war. I do not recall that the movie explicitly mentioned that JetFire is an Autobot. I guess the enemy of my enemy is my friend is in effect here. The version of this JetFire is the Takara version. Perhaps if you have the Hasbro version, you may spot the difference.
Transformers the Movie (TFTM) made in the year 2007 has brought Transformers back in to the main stream. Of course it is not without controversy, name calling or mud sling between Transformers fan. The Transformers fans is divided between the G1 purist and non purist.
What was transpired then, has actually breath a new life in to the Transformers fandom. The Leader Class Optimus Prime was indeed the pinacle of Transformers toy. Although it is lack of accuracy to the actual Movie Optimus Prime. It was indeed a Transformers toy that every Transformers fan wish to have.
With the new movie a new Leader Class Optimus Prime were released. Which one of the Leader Class Optimus Prime is better.

Hasbro Revenge of the Fallen (ROTF) leader class is definately the most movie accurate representation of Optimus Prime in both the 2007 and 2009 Transformers Movie.
This toy easily outdone any Takara masterpiece Transfromers in term of details, complexity of transformation and playability. Out of the box, Optimus Prime is in his robot mode ready to be pose with various pose. Transforming Prime into the SemiTruck is very complicated and it shows superb engineering of current toys compared to the G1 transformers.
