What It Is
This is Beast Hunter Optimus Prime – Ultimate class edition. It is from the Transformers Prime, Tales of the Beast Hunters collection.
Why It’s Fun
This Ultimate Optimus is even more awesome than the Voyager class Beast Hunter Optimus that we have also reviewed. For starters, he is almost double the size of the Voyager class figure and has one of the most unique weapons that we have ever seen on a Transformer, the Firebreath Cyclocannons. The Cyclocannons is a rotating cannon with five different projectile launchers that can be automatically spun into place and fired.
Optimus also has two light-up features. His eyes and windshield-chest light up when his chest piece is pressed down.
Who It’s For
Transformers fans, ages 5 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
This figure comes with a sword and shield that can be attached to his body in vehicle mode.
Young Transformers fans should have no problems transforming Optimus by following the instructions. It took us eight minutes to transform Optimus into vehicle mode and four minutes to transform him back to robot mode.
Requires two button-cell batteries, which are included.
