    When I saw the pics of this toy online I really liked how the truck looked but was unsure about the robot. When I bought it today I must say the robot looks much better in person. I have seen the 44 dollar toy and it does look great, but with that said this cheaper toy really does hold up well in comparison. If I had one small gripe it’s that Prime’s chest is not the front of the truck like old versions of the toy and instead a fake chest is used. This is minor and really is made up for more than well enough.
    All in all if you want a really good permanent Prime this is a great addition and well worth the price. It also was just hard enough to transform without being over the top hard like some of the other toys that have come out in this line. Bumblebee comes to mind.

    This review is from: Transformers Voyager Optimus Prime (Toy)

    I recently picked up this Transformer and aside from a few quibbles, I have been very impressed.

    It has been a while since I actually bought a Transformer for myself, but recently I have been getting back into it. I had heard from a friend recently that the newer Transformers had a suprising amount of detail in the transformations. Add a resurgent fascination with Star Wars and I decided to pick up a couple of the Star Wars Crossover series. It has only progressed from there so with a recent birthday I decided to pick up this model.

    First the good. The transformation of the toy simply wowed me. No more simple “unfold leg and twist”. (Yes, the legs still “just unfold” but the details in that is what sells it). The panels that pop out and mechanically fold back under are just not there in the older toys. And considering this model is only rated at a 3 out 4 difficulty, I can only imagine what a 4 out of 4 would be like to transform.

    Additionally, the detailing on the truck is excellent. From the “faceless driver” that flips out of sight when the door is opened to the spring loaded panels on the cab that pop into place as the legs extend, to the forearm protectors that slide into place, there were just so many details on this toy that impressed me.

    Finally, the eyes in the head and the lights on the truck are clear blue plastic so that if you face Optimus towards you with a light behind it (like a window) they light up. Very cool.

    The downsides. Some parts of the model I would guess wouldn’t be that durable. Parts such as the rear fenders fold up but seem precarious and vulnerable to rough play. I imagine an older kid would have no problem with this but a toddler or someone on the edge of the rated age range might inadvertently break them off. Also, the nose of the truck just sort of folds up into a ungainly backpack in robot mode. It would have been nice if a little more thought went into this aspect of the model.

    All said though, this is one of the coolest tranformers I have had the pleasure to transform in a long time and will only fuel my addiction for more to come

    Highly recommended. Enjoy.

    Last point, this toy seems almost identical to the one issued for the first Transformers movie with a simple paint change. Since I do not own that toy as well, I cannot speak to any change made among the various issuances, though I believe it is Hasbro’s policy to reissue the same toy over and over again in various packaging.

    This review is from: Transformers Voyager Optimus Prime (Toy)

    I bought this for my five year old son. I was concerned that it was too complicated and too fragile but he had his little heart set on getting Optimus Prime and the only other model costs twice as much. Well both concerns turned out unfounded. After a little bit of initial help, Jack was soon converting it from robot to truck and back without any help – it really wasn’t that complicated but kudos on the overall sophistication of the toy for the price. In terms of durability, well parts do tend to fall off – particularly the smoke stacks, the feet and these red flaps on the arms. But fortunately they snap right back on and seem none the worse. It seems that the toy was designed to give on pre set snap joints rather than breaking – kudos again for the design folks. I don’t want to overstate the quality – I am sure it will break in time, almost all toys do, but it survived the first week with a whole lot of play and my son is very happy spending a lot of time with opimus prime.
