Transformers Age of Extinction Generations Leader Class Optimus Prime Review (Hasbro)

What It Is

The Transformers: Age of Extinction Generations Leader: Optimus Prime from Hasbro is the large, Leader Class Optimus Prime figure from the movie, Transformers: Age of Extinction. As usual, Optimus Prime has two modes, robot and vehicle. In robot mode, this Optimus figure has multiple articulation points that allow him to be posed in various action stances. He also has his classic red and blue color scheme with metallic accents. The figure comes with the Sword of Judgment and Vector Shield. Optimus' vehicle mode is one of the best looking vehicle modes that we have seen yet for an Optimus Prime figure. The truck really looks like a big tractor trailer cab and has red flames along the hood and sides. There is storage for the shield on the hitch and the sword can be sheathed underneath the truck.

Is It Fun?

This Age of Extinction figure lets kids and collectors recreate the action from the movie. Kids will want to play with this figure and collectors will want it for display.

Who It’s For

Generations Leader Optimus Prime is for Transformers fans, ages 8 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

There are 20 steps to transform this Optimus figure. Going from robot to truck took us 10 minutes and truck to robot took five minutes. The final step in transforming Optimus into a robot involves his head automatically popping up, which is a fun surprise.

The figure comes in robot mode, but the directions show you how to transform him into a robot. It's a little confusing but most Transformers fans should be able to transform Optimus into vehicle mode by following the directions in reverse.
