About this deal

Jet Optimus on the left, Optimus Prime Megaweapon on the right) Prime's cab and trailer can also combine to form his " Super Mode". Such as the one piece crotch plate and hand holes being always there rather than popping out like Jetfire's.

The figure was released in Japan under the "EZ Collection" banner, in the same packaging as the Hasbro release but with a small card insert featuring the Japanese logo and nomenclature, similar to a USA Edition. It's just that the windows are the only things in the way and since they're pretty small, it's not like there's much to move out of the way. Legends of Cybertron Optimus is a very simplified version of Cybertron Optimus Prime, with no weapons or trailer, just the front portion of the truck. The Autobot insignia on his truck roof/super mode chestplate is also removable — a sign of things to come, perhaps? A slight redeco of Takara's Combat Class-size Grand Convoy was released as part of a special set commemorating both the 20th anniversary of Transformers and the 30th anniversary of its progenitor, Microman.

Back when he was a little guy, I had this big multi pack that came with Armada prime and jetfire, and a takara overload (my 1st takara toy outside of G1), and my boy and I reminisced about laying on our bellies watching that trailer transform ALL . This golden-chromed redeco of the Leader-sized Grand Convoy figure was initially offered as a prize to five lucky winners of a colouring contest held in the pages of the TV Magazine. Bizarrely enough, Optimus Prime was one of three Cybertron Legends toys straight-released in Classics packaging, though with the modifier "Cybertron Collection" printed on the cardfront. When a Cyber Key is inserted at the rear of the board, a spring-loaded extending "assault blade" deploys, and a trigger is revealed to allow one to use the spring-loaded missile launcher at the tip. a decision that must have come late in the day, as they went on to star in their own promotional animation, " Stuck in a Tree", released about eight months after the trade show.

Additionally, we can see now that the Core robot is similar, but not the same, as the Generations Wonderfest 2019 figure. I have the new feet upgrade to make it look more like the super mode feet from Cybertron Optimus Prime. Sold under the Cybertron banner, their continuity of origin was ambiguous for years until clarified in 2015 by the Facebook edition of Ask Vector Prime. So adding another set of thigh extenders would push past that and it would really look silly at that point. He comes with a large ion blaster that can be held in both robot modes, and smokestacks that can detach and combine with the rifle as part of his Evo-Fusion feature; however, the gimmick's logo is oddly absent from the box itself.Legacy: United, the third year of Legacy product, was once more announced in fall 2023 at that year's Pulse Con.

I fixed SS86 Ironhide's skit by cutting it into three pieces so that the whole thing doesn't move all at once. He came with a translucent red version of the remolded style of Cyber Key previously included with this mold's release during the Cybertron line, featuring a Powerlinx port to activate his punching gimmick. Transforming the cab into the torso portion sends the transformation command to the trailer, which raises itself up off the ground to become a pair of immobile, statuesque legs (as long as you're not playing with it on carpet), and when the pair are connected, the Super Mode head pops up with a metallic shriek sound effect.Meanwhile, Prime Skyquake ended up as a pretty even blend between the Prime and original Skyquake visually, while the Armada characters added to the line all had sculpts that were incredibly faithful to their original iterations (minus loads of gimmicks, of course, but the visuals were there). It is this set from which the name of Optimus Prime's combined mode with Jetfire, "Jet Prime", comes.

Pressing the small blue button just over the battery casing plays a "firing" sound effect with accompanying light flash. Optimus is slightly mistransformed in the image to the right, in vehicle mode his chest windows should be folded round to the sides of the cab to cover the arm sockets. As was the case with the Universe "Battle in a Box" Ultra Magnus release of this sculpt, initial shipments of Optimus Prime had the forearms swapped, leaving his elbow joints useless. Characters from franchises known for more unique aesthetics, such as Prime and Animated, are updated with the modern Generations aesthetic to fit with the rest of the toyline, which can range from a significant redesign to the same basic model just rendered more like a modern " Generation 1" toy. Transformers Legacy opens the portal to a whole new universe of -- More Than Meets the Eye -- bringing together every generation of Transformers like you’ve never seen before.Like most of the weapons of the Energon line, it sports a 5 mm post, allowing it to be held by most every Energon figure, to combine with assorted other weapons and energon weapons released in the series, and to peg into numerous compatible ports shared by many figures, like the hole in the radar of Prime's own trailer, or even conveniently placed 5mm screw holes like those of the Prime Force. Hopefully someone down the line makes adapters so he can combine with Jetfire and tow Overload properly.
