It's Optimus Prime — if you were about two inches tall!
By Anthony Saguid
For somebody who lived in the 80s as a kid, you dreamed of one day seeing a Transformers robot transforming on its own. Well, here it is -- it has finally seen the light of day.
This 19” Optimus Prime collaborative work of Robusen robotics and Hashbro is a dream come true. It is absolute eye candy -- complete with detailed moving parts (with breathing and metal clanking SFX). Without you touching it, it flaunts all its fighting stances at your command.
And that’s not all! It speaks in the voice of Peter Cullen, the original voice actor who gave life to the leader of the Autobots in the animated series we all enjoyed watching when we were kids - it doesn’t get much cooler than that!
Imagine being able to downsize yourself to about an inch or two, and then telling this truck to transform.
I’ve probably watched too many Michael Bay Transformers movies, but whatever your reason to buy this toy, to watch it transform back and forth for hours or days on end, I totally understand you.
It isn't cheap, but if you still buy it, I still understand you.
