#1002: TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED | EARTH-MODE OPTIMUS PRIME
PROFILE (ROBOT MODE)
PROFILE (ALTERNATE MODE)
It was during the run of the TRANSFORMERS Animated series in 2007 that Hasbro released figures of Optimus Prime in all available size classes. From Legends, to Deluxe, to Voyager, to Supreme and even to the Activators, there’s an Optimus Prime available. For the Deluxe Class, many would remember this mold as part of the "Battle Begins" two-pack that also included Megatron (and a DVD of the series pilot), though both have painted battle damage all over their bodies. The only way to get this clean version of the figure is by participating in a Japanese-exclusive lottery draw through the Family Mart chain of convenience stores. This version also sports a matte paint finish that makes the figure appear less toy-like. Other than those mentioned, this Optimus Prime is basically the same as the figure released in the two-pack, complete with his signature ax.
