Based on Transformers: Dark of the Moon, the Hasbro Transformers Ultimate Optimus Prime Figure is the premium movie-adapted Transformers toy on the market. Designed for ages five and older, and standing over 22 inches tall, this action figure is more than deserving of the title "Ultimate." With a sleek design, glowing weapon lights, and battle and conversation sounds, Ultimate Optimus Prime is an ideal toy for serious Transformers collectors.
Convert From Truck to Robot
Recommended for ages five and up, Ultimate Optimus Prime is one of the most fully featured action figures you'll find. Initially, Ultimate Optimus Prime appears as a semi-trailer truck in Trailer Mode. With its vivid red and blue finish and distinct racing stripes, Ultimate Optimus Prime's truck form is as detailed and well built as any model truck and would be a perfect addition to a cabinet or dresser top. The truck is able to roll freely on carpet and hard surfaces alike.
Like all Transformers, there is more to Ultimate Optimus Prime's truck form than meets the eye. When it is time for him to come out of disguise and lead his fellow Autobots into battle, he can transform into a massive, powerful robot in Robot Mode. Using Power Mode, the trailer converts into the Omega Combat Armor, allowing Optimus to be placed inside for an impressive 22-inch high stature with extended wings. Equipped with a firing Ultimate Super Cannon and retractable battle mask, Ultimate Optimus Prime is handsomely detailed and articulated, so he's posable.
Advanced Lights and Sounds
Ultimate Optimus Prime can light up and make a variety of sounds. The Ultimax Super Canon features separate buttons to create rocket and plasma firing sounds with coinciding flashing red lights. With a pull of the sliding trigger, the front of the canon opens up for a coordinated burst of lights and sounds, accompanied by the iconic phrase "I am Optimus Prime!"
Challenging Transformation Process
Serious collectors may have some concerns about the figure, particularly his posability. His wrists and waist don't move, limiting his articulation, and some of his joints range from being too stiff to too loose. The Ultimax Super Canon, while impressive in its massive weight and size, makes it difficult to balance Optimus once it's connected to his body and limits his motion. Also, his wings detach frequently, yet are easy to snap back on.
The figure's robot-to-truck conversion is especially difficult to perform, taking up to 30 minutes. Younger children might not be able to transform Optimus Prime on their own. Still, these flaws can be overlooked, given the overall high quality of the toy. For added connectivity, the figure features six Mechtech ports on the highest wings and four on the canon, making it easy to attach separate weapons for enhanced play (sold separately).
The Transformers began as a Hasbro toy line back in 1984, featuring toy vehicles that could transform into robots. The toys soon inspired an entire universe of fictional story lines, pitting the two factions of Transformers--the heroic Autobots and the evil Decepticons--against one another. A live-action movie based on the Transformers was released in 2007 and has continued the toy line's popularity. With toys such as the Ultimate Optimus Prime Figure, kids can bring home the struggle between the Autobots and Decepticons.

Omega Armor Power Up Mode
- Massive size, standing 22 inches tall (with wingspan). It's incredible to look at and makes an amazing display piece.
- Massive mech-tech canon stores perfectly on his back, or flips down to give him a new helmet and huge gun that is held with both hands.
- Very stable, he won't be likely to fall over easily at all.
- Aside from some issues with his wings, he's pretty durable.
- Feet design make him incredibly stable
- 6 mech-tech ports on the top of his highest wings, along with 4 on his canon. Attaching a weapon to each of those make him look even more incredible.
- His wings pop off frequently, but they're easy to snap back on.
- His arms don't stay together well, which can be a real pain. You'll have to hold a large portion of the arm keep it in one piece while moving it.
- Limited poseability, pretty common for combiners, but for an $80 price tag that's a bit painful. No waist articulation, and only side to side leg mobility.
- Combined mode head is a too small, unless you flip the canon out to give him a helmet.
- Helmet is permanently attached to the canon, so you have to have the gun out for a proper sized head.
His combined mode is very impressive, and the wing pop-off problem is not that big of a deal. While it has very little range of motion, the sheer size more than makes up for it.
Side Note 1: If you hate the "Butterfly wings" you can fold them and position them anyway you want, in no way are his wing positions limited. They can look like a cloak, or more like the jet pack he uses in the movie.
Side Note 2: If you want a bigger head for his combined mode, you have to do a mod to remove his canon's helmet from the canon segment. Look up Peaugh's youtube video "Ultimate Optimus Prime Helmet Modification" if you want him to have the helmet with no canon.
Optimus Prime robot mode
- Very small amount of excess car parts (Kibble) are present in his robot mode.
- Decent poseability, not great but it's pretty good. His balance is also pretty good, he can stand on one leg with the other leg raised in a kicking position without any stability problems.
- Great head sculpt.
- Pretty durable.
- Stays together very well in robot mode.
- Very sturdy smokestacks, not the ones that get bent out of shape easily.
- Intermediate transformation, Revenge of the Fallen Leader Prime he is not. It's not very hard, but it's not easy enough for a 5 year old.
- Larger than a voyager, but smaller than a leader
- This con is subjective. Most people dislike his "Popeye" arms. His front wheels from vehicle mode do not collapse or store in any way. However, It's not as big of a drawback in person as the pictures made it seem.
- No waste or wrist articulation. For 80 bucks, I definitely did expect that.
- Shoulder guards can pop off (this could just be my figure though, it may not happen on all of them, and it's easy enough to snap back on).
I had a lot of fun with his separate robot mode, and posing him is pretty enjoyable. His balance is pretty good, and I just love his kibble-free look. The arms, waist, and legs are a setback, but it really isn't that bad. He looks much better in person and is VERY far from being the worst Optimus Prime ever as a few people have claimed (In my opinion, that title easily goes to his Machine Wars incarnation or Titanium Optimus Prime). You'll either love this mode or hate it. He may not be the most movie accurate, but if you really want near perfect screen accuracy, get Jetwing Optimus Prime from Takara (extremely pricey, though) or the Revenge of the Fallen Leader Prime.
Side Note: For those interested, he's about the size of an Ultra Class figure when he's not in power up mode, so his size is in between a voyager and leader class figure.
Semi Truck/Trailer mode
- Evokes a classic G1 feel
- Rolls and turns nicely
- His combined mode's canon stores very well underneath it, and nothing drags on the ground when rolling it along.
- Little to no robot parts are visible in his Truck/Trailer mode.
- The Truck itself looks pretty nice, and has a very good paint job.
- Mech-Tech ports aplenty. He's got quite a few ports all over him to place any mech-tech weapon on.
- Paint apps could be better on the trailer itself. It's a standard dull grey, and the Autobot logo could look much better.
- No vehicle mode features.
- Cab portion is a bit too small for the trailer
Side note: His trailer can fit on the Revenge of the Fallen Leader Prime, but it does require some customization to the trailer hitch.
Not a whole lot to say about this mode, it's very nice and looks great, rolls well, but the paint apps could look better and it could use some electronic for this mode.
Final thoughts: I went in with somewhat high expectations, but I knew not to expect another ROTF Leader Prime figure (because he's pretty much perfect), and I came away very satisfied. The whole package is quite good. His combined mode is an incredible display piece, the size and variety of wing poses make him a very strong looking figure. His separate robot mode isn't the most screen accurate, but it is a lot of fun. The trailer mode is a fantastic recreation of his G1 appearance.
Don't go in expecting another ROTF Leader Prime, because this Prime isn't screen accurate. However, he's a ton of a fun and is, to me, worth the price. His easy transformation is less time consuming than ROTF Leader Prime, so he is much more kid accessible, but is geared towards older kids or collectors. Also, the instructions aren't all that helpful. It's all pictures and no words, and with an instruction sheet this huge, it's pretty cumbersome and unclear in what it means.
With supervision, it should be fine for older children, but it will probably be too complex (and huge) for younger kids.
