Blog #182: Toy Review: Transformers: Prime Cyberverse Battle Suit Optimus Maximus

To put it succinctly, this toy is a steaming pile of dung.  I shall elaborate.

Transformers: Prime Cyberverse Battle Suit Optimus Maximus

This toy is a piece of crap.  If you haven’t seen one up close, you can put a Cyberverse Commander Optimus Prime in his chest to pilot him.  He has places for Commander and Legion figures on his shoulders, forearms (if you tilt them up) and in his legs and feet.  He has lights and sounds, and some springless missiles on one shoulder.  That’s it.  He transforms much like G1 Metroplex becoming some kind of rolling base, but without all the cool accessories and gimmicks that Metroplex had.  That’s it.  I am not a fan of toys being too articulated, but not only does he not have shoulder joints, his arms can only rotate up and down at the elbow.  There is no rotation side to side.  He’s just a hunk of plastic that doesn’t do much.

Fortunately, at $33, he’s not going to be too hard on the wallet.

I was expecting that he would have a lot more accessories, pop out weapons, etc.  No such luck.

Thanks for reading!

    Why spend 33$ for this piece of crap at retail, when you can spend 81$ online and get crap sooner! This toy reeks of the larger implications in life. I’ll not go into them here.
