But that's not the point. This IS a children's toy, after all, and I think that we, as collectors, sometimes loose sight of that.
Kids are going to have a blast with Optimus Prime. He's easy to transform and comes with more gimmicks than you can shake a stick at. The vehicles can be switched to form both arms and legs, increasing the play value of the toy. Prime's "base" mode is kinda cheesy (the trailer just flips on its butt), but that means that there's no joints to snap or extra pieces to loose.
Large, durable, poseable and colorful, this is the Optimus Prime to give to children.
As far as collectors go, though . . . wait for 20th annivery Prime.
I, too, was hesitant, but I took the plunge and decided to buy Energon Prime. As it turns out, he is an incredibly fun toy to play with and a great addition to the exciting Energon line. He is different, yes-- but do you really want the same basic Prime gimmicks over and over? Cab becomes robot, trailer becomes base, they combine into a big robot-- that stuff has been done over and over again in various forms. This is a new Prime, and he's a darn fun one.
Energon Prime comes with a traditional vehicle configuration of cab and trailer. The cab becomes the basic robot. This Prime looks good with a very Prime-like face and many of the typical Prime features (windows on his chest, face plate). The robot form is a bit bulky, but that doesn't keep him from looking cool.
Prime's trailer is actually a housing compartment for four smaller vehicles, Ops 1 - 4. This is basically an extension of the original concept of G1 Prime's "Roller" component. There is a fire truck, a helicopter, a drill tank, and a submarine inside! This packs a lot of play value into one toy! The vehicles can each be launched from their bays, and there is a helipad for Op 2.
Now comes the really cool part. Reconfigure Optimus a bit, and you can attach a vehicle to each of his arms and legs. Now you have a super-powered Optimus Prime! In this mode, Prime is the same size as Energon Megatron, so the two classic adversaries make a good match for each other. He looks a little strange with the orange and yellow in addition to the classic colors, but it's a small sacrifice considering the other advantages of the toy. He is still very poseable in this mode, in comparison with many Primes that become "bricks" once they combine into their larger form. Also, any one of the vehicles can serve as either an arm or a leg, so you can do a whole bunch of combinations and never have the same Prime twice!
I must admit I was wrong about my initial impressions of this toy. I was originally put off by the Megazord-like nature of his configuration, and his un-Prime-like coloring. But I was wrong-- he is a great deal of a fun and a strong addition to the Prime legacy. I hope you don't let the minor stigmas attached to this toy keep you from enjoying it, because you will really be missing out.
Packed with accessories and features, this quintessential Autobot leader is quite the toy, and highly recommended! Though it is true that Prime may not be to the tastes of more discerning fans (i.e., the VERY picky "adult" fanbase), trust me when I say that kids are going to LOVE this bad boy.
