LEGO has revealed the completely converting Optimus Prime, a new toy inspired on Hasbro’s iconic Transformers franchise’s fan-favorite Autobot commander. One of the primary selling aspects of this rendition of the original 1984 Optimus Prime, which has over 1,500 LEGO pieces, is its 19 points of articulation, which enables the toy to be changed between the character’s robot and vehicle modes, which stand 35 cm and 15 cm tall, respectively. The completely transforming Transformers Optimus Prime from the LEGO Group and Hasbro will be available for $169.99 starting June 1 on LEGO.com/optimus and in LEGO shops worldwide.
“Working with Hasbro to create a LEGO version of Optimus Prime has been an honor and a delight!” remarked Joseph Patrick Kyde, Senior Designer at the LEGO Group. “I’m thrilled to see these two toy makers collaborate for the first time to honor the Autobots’ commander.” Optimus Prime has become a symbol of daring, altruism, and outstanding leadership in pop culture, as well as a fantastic toy that exemplifies the problem-solving and creative qualities that both corporations prize. Bringing him to life using LEGO bricks has been a fantastic and demanding undertaking, particularly ensuring that he can switch modes without disassembly while maintaining his trademark appearance and style.”
Hasbro’s Head of Licensed Consumer Products and Business Development, Casey Collins, said, “We’re pleased to bring two of the world’s best play and entertainment brands together to celebrate this larger-than-life, iconic figure — Optimus Prime.” “We believe this cooperation will excite fans worldwide since it allows fans and families of all ages to make memories while working together to construct the LEGO Transformers Optimus Prime.”
The “g1 optimus prime” is a fully converting LEGO set that comes with over 1,500 pieces. It also includes an exclusive buildable figure of Optimus Prime.
