We never thought this day would happen, but the Hasbro Transformers franchise has officially crossed over into LEGO! And here is the fantastic leader of the Autobots, Optimus Prime!
Transformers are one of my all-time favourite toys and as an adult, I still collect some of them. Indeed, I still have my original Transformer toys from the 1980s including the original, all-be-it very well played with, Optimus Prime.
With this version, LEGO has returned to the original G1 Optimus Prime (Generation 1 version) and created a work of art. Honestly, that’s what it is! The way they have captured the mechanism of him transforming and the look is just perfect. They’ve even included his Jet Pack, a genius way to cover up the gaps in his back (which is just like the original toy had, lol!).
