#1012: TRANSFORMERS DARK OF THE MOON | OPTIMUS PRIME
PROFILE (ROBOT MODE)
PROFILE (ALTERNATE MODE)
For the first two live-action movies, Hasbro released Optimus Prime figures using the same voyager class mold albeit slightly different color schemes. By TRANSFORMERS Dark Of The Moon, Optimus Prime had a minor design change with different torso details. This immediately meant that Hasbro would produce new molds of the character. Aside from the Voyager Class figure, to which many described as inferior to the Battle Blades Optimus Prime mold, they also released a new deluxe class version — the first since Protoform Optimus Prime. The alternate mode is faithful to its on-screen counterpart with excellent paint applications and use of silver-painted parts. However, limitations in size class causes the transformation to robot mode to be inaccurate to the movie. It also suffers lack of painted details especially in the arms, though the figure compensates with its good poseability. Its Mechtech weapon is a gun that turns into a battle ax.
