Lets start of by saying that in truck mode this toy looks very convincing. It is very detailed and there is little to give away the fact that this toy transforms into a robot. It has a lot of little detailing, like a realistic interior and fold down truck gate and opening hood that make it an interesting toy from the start.
Now the transformation for this toy it where things start to get bad. I will start out by saying that I collect transformers, and I must have at least 100 toys ranging from Generation 1 up until the recent Cybertron toy line. I have the MP-01 "Anniversary Optimus Prime" which often gets put in the Alternators line, which is where this Dodge Ram Optimus Prime is from.
Now the first thing that struck me when transforming this toy into a robot is that the directions weren't as clear as they should be. I mean, half the time I don't even look at the directions, but some of the joint configurations, especially for the arms are very confusing as to whey they were done the way they were. Several parts, like the car doors, pulled off when I was transforming this toy, and although they snap right back on it was a little shocking to have a part come off so early into a transformation (or 2 minutes after you get this toy out of the box).
After struggling with the transformation, I eventually got it into Robot mode, and when looking at this toy in Robot Mode, it doesn't look anything like Prime, except for the head. The robot mode is bulky and ill-proportioned at best.Read more ›
Still, several of the features that make the Alternators line interesting are rather slipshod on this figure. The hood opens only by taking the grille with it, the engine compartment is not at all convincing, the steering gimmick functions almost not at all, etc. Additionally, the vehicle mode feels less than sturdy in some places, and the robot mode looks somewhat unfinished because of the halves of the front bumper hanging over the shoulders; some pieces feel rather fragile, like the clear plastic armatures that move the bumper halves into place. The joints in the shoulders are engineered somewhat weirdly and can be difficult to control.
In all, the figure is well worth the price point and a good display piece in both modes, despite some minor flaws. It's somewhat less suited for play and younger buyers.
Other parts of the toy are equally fragile and I had to take care not to break the thing while transforming it and posing it for my shelf. In the hands of a kid, this toy would be broken into a dozen pieces in a heartbeat.
Cliff notes: if you're a careful collector of Transformers toys, I can recommend this toy to you. But if you're buying it for your kids, look elsewhere for a more durable, less sharp toy.
I typically get the imports but I just had to have Optimus Prime.

This is one of the best recent renditions of Prime yet. Very stunning as a Dodge Ram SRT 10. Great posing and easy transformations. The red color is great!!!Published on March 28, 2007 by Prime + Dodge = Great!!
I am collector myself of the Alternator series. The design is very realistic and the transformations a bit trickier than the other transformers toys. Read morePublished on March 14, 2007 by Ahmed Mofid Elmenshawy
The parts are easy to fall off, and they do not fit that well. The hood always pops up in truck mode. It is a design issue. It is quite hard to transform. Read morePublished on January 28, 2007 by Haidong
