Robot mode: Prime stands impressively tall and looks very imposing with or without the arm blades deployed. The lever in the center of his chest activates lights and sounds. When pressed down, you hear the Iconic voice of Peter Cullen proclaim: "I am Optimus Prime" When transforming, a hidden button plays the transforming sound.
Overall, I am extremely happy that I finally found this figure, my only regret is that I didn't get him sooner.
There are only a few things I want to warn interested consumers about with this toy. The durability of some of the parts can be questionable. The red chest pieces have to be almost wrestled out of their slots to transform. They are frighteningly small and I fear that they may be prone to breakage if not handled cautiously when you are removing them. Also, the large blue sleeper panels have a pretty solid attachment when he is in truck mode. I am nervous about breaking the panels as I disconnect them. The pegs that allow the panels to split and pivot to form his shoulder blades are plastic, so you must be careful especially when disconnecting the panels from truck mode and folding them up to make his shoulder blades.
Other than that, you may just want to mind the paint! The panels that cover the front 'nose' of Prime's semi mode, fold in on themselves and cover part of his swords and I have noticed after regular usage, that some areas where the sword contacts the panel, the paint has been slightly damaged, although this is merely cosmetic.
I have also taken the pleasure of repainting him... I am a stickler for detail and there are some color errors that I had to fix. [...]
This figure is incredibly accurate to the Optimus Prime model used in the movies. Its robot form, truck mode, and transformation are all extremely detailed and designed to look just like the movie version. As a result, its transformation is extremely complicated. I mostly recommend this figure to collectors over the age of 15. The figure is sturdy enough to be played with, I've had mine for months now and all of the joints are in good shape. Still, Hasbro has released many, many different optimus primes (There are gravity bots and fast action battles for younger kids, and the Voyager Optimus Prime is perfect for kids who have some practice with transformers already). So take a look at them all and decide which is best.
On to the figure itself: This Optimus is a BIG improvement on the original leader toy from the first movie. Its only negative aspects are plastic tires (first movie prime had rubber tires) and no individual finger articulation (however, this toy does not bring a gun so its not necessary). It has some lights and sounds (makes the tranformation sound when part of the transformation is done) and actually has the voice of Peter Cullen (who voiced Optimus in both movies as well as the original 80s cartoon). The figure also has a swing out plastic "blade" on each arm (which can get a little in the way of its possibility at times).
In all honesty though, if you're at all a fan of transformers toys, and think you can handle the challenge of transforming this great, great figure, BUY IT.
On Christmas morning, my son woke to find his present and my poor husband was left with the task of transforming Optimus into a truck. And he did it in under an hour. He did it several times that day, the first time with the instructions but there after with trial and error and each time he improved on his first initial time until he now can do it in under 15 minutes. My son is unable to transform it on his own, and I will need a lot of practice before I get it right myself, but it is not nearly as difficult to transform as most reviews let on. Or my husband is just a super freak. I could swing either way.
