Optimus Prime – Legends Class

This week ToyGallery is dedicated to Optimus Prime – the iconic leader of the Autobots in the Transformer series.

Name: Optimus Prime (Autobot)
Series: Transformers ROTF (Legend class)
Company: Hasbro
Price: Rs 175

Legends Class Optimus Prime stands out for a number of reasons (or probably I’m a bit too biased ;))

Optimus Prime Legend TRUCK FRONT BACK

In the vehicle mode (a Peterbilt truck/semi), a lot of attention has been given to detail.

Optimus Prime Legend TRUCK GRILLE

The compact truck cab with the step up to the doors and sideview mirrors, the imposing grille with raised circles on the lower portion,  and the part I love the most, the legendary flames on the hood and the front wheels.

The rear too has many interesting details including the circle in the center where a trailer would hitch onto the vehicle and the cylindrical tanks on the sides.

Optimus Prime Legend STANDING

Transforming from vehicle to robot mode has a unique charm (unlike other legends), that of a 180 degrees swivel around the waist.

Optimus Prime Legend CHEST

The iconic mouthplate/crest is well sculpted in this figure.

Optimus Prime Legend VICTORY

The best characteristic of this legend figure is that every single robot part is so well concealed. The fists could be seen on the rear but they could pass as tail lights.

    • @Aya: Welcome to the site 🙂 You’re right… the bot mode does make him look like a boxer… and it seems that jigsaw even managed to give him a gorilla pose 😀
