Despite having washed out of the Autobot academy, Optimus Prime is a natural leader. Trained to lead the bravest of the brave into battle against overwhelming odds, he eagerly looked forward to his first assignment. It's just too bad the Decepticons were defeated ages ago, and the only crews left to lead are the maintenance squads that keep the Space Bridge network running. Since his assignment, he's lost track of his ambitions. The last thing he expects is the chance to test his leadership abilities in a battle to defend his home and fight for freedom.
With a double-handled Ion-axe weapon that converts to a giant war axe and a windshield that turns into a shield, this brave Optimus Prime figure is ready for battle. The toughest of trucks, Optimus Prime converts from robot mode to Cybertron truck mode to help the Autobots win the battle against the Decepticon forces.
This is a must have from the Animated Deluxe line. Very poseable figure with great articulation and the vehicle mode looks great too. The only gripe I have is that the axe head is a little loose fitting and pops off a little easily but all in all an excellent addition to the collection. This was purchased loose from Falcon's Hangar at a discounted price of $15, if I recall correctly.
