Optimus Prime (Battle Blades- Voyager Class)

Prime was a much desired toy. Call me a sentimentalist but having Prime around , gives me a very warm feeling… like things are under control when the leader keeps watch!

In the vehicle mode Optimus Prime is a modified Peterbilt 379 truck.

Measuring about 7-inches long in vehicle mode, Optimus Prime has most of the robot parts well concealed under the truck, giving it an overall compact appearance.

There is excellent detail on this voyager sized figure–the front grille, the alloy wheels and the ‘steel’ fixtures (a cause of envy even to those owning the Leader class 😉

Transforming Voyager Battle Blades OP can take you half an hour if you are still dependent on the instruction leaflet! But with such delicate parts and such elaborate steps, I would not take a chance to transform it from memory for sometime.

Optimus is also equipped with twin ion blasters formed from his fuel tanks. They’re not too massive or fancy, but they still look like they could easily punch big, burning holes in Decepticon armour.

The rubber swords aren’t spring-loaded and need to be deployed manually. They add so much variety to the armament of this figure!

Ready to defend Earth from the Decepticon menace!

Optimus Prime Battle Blade stands tall among the other transformer figures in my collection- sleek, strong, and agile, a warrior ready to strike!

  1. Great pics 😀 those twin cannons definitely add to this version of prime… the lack of the silver is a definitely downer compared to the leader class 😦 and the even bigger grouch i have with the leader class is that random red part right in the middle of his foot!
