BLOG: Battle Command Optimus Prime – An Introspect
|Takara Tomy has just released Battle Command Optimus Prime, a one-off figure meant to interact with the Age of Extinction one-step changers – released in Japan as the main Lost Age line. Seen from these in-hand images, the figure has a LOT of back kibble thanks to its intended play pattern, and is taking quite a lot of flak because of it.
But for some reason, this collector is more forgiving of these flaws. Looking at front, it’s more movie accurate than the Leader Class figures – which also shares the same transformation scheme, albeit more simplified. The main reason though is its size. For a collection of mainly Deluxes and a few Voyagers, this version will likely fit as per the CATALOGUE definition. So yeah, this is just a justification of this particular purchase.
