Transformers Age of Extinction First Edition Optimus Prime Review (Hasbro)

Transformers Age of Extinction First Edition Optimus Prime
What It Is

The Transformers: Age of Extinction First Edition Optimus Prime Figure from Hasbro is the first toy from the fourth Transformers movie, Transformers: Age Of Extinction.

Optimus transforms from a robot to truck cab. This version of the Autobots leader in robot form is over 10-inches tall, has shiny chrome-like features, bright red and blue coloring, and the truck cab backpack. The figure comes with two accessories, the Sword of Judgment and Sentinel Shield, which can both be held in Optimus' hands or attached to the truck in vehicle form. In robot form, Optimus has a decent amount of articulation, which allows him to be posed in several cool positions. The truck form does a great job of concealing the robot parts.

Is It Fun?

Kids are going to love this figure because they can reenact scenes from the Transformers movies or imagine their own Autobot adventures.

This is a must have for collectors because it's the first toy from the new movie, and it's Optimus Prime.

Who It’s For

This Optimus Prime figure is for Transformers fans, ages 8 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

This Optimus figure features a simplified transforming design and can be transformed in 15 steps. It took us about six minutes to transform from robot to truck and three minutes to go back to robot. This makes the toy more accessible for younger Transformers fans, but it could annoy older fans and collectors who might find this too simplistic.
