Transformers Prime Weaponizers Optimus Prime
Vehicle Mode: The front of the vehicle, from the cab forward looks awesome. Unfortunately the back half sucks. His truck bead is an open hole with his robot forearms sitting in the front portion and nothing in the back. Also, in vehicle mode, the “deploying weapon” requires you to flip down the truck grill in order to deploy it. Seems like that needed a little more work on the drawing board.
Robot Mode: I really like Prime’s robot mode, and the guns looks great on his shoulders. It’s just unfortunate that the red weapon covers have to stick straight up on his shoulders.
Overall: I really like the Prime. But I really take issue with Hasbro advertising the toy as having four modes. He has two modes, robot and car. Deploying weapons is an action feature, but does not constitute the toy having additional modes. That’s like saying Legion toys have four modes because you can take the guns off. It isn’t really changed by the fact that the weapons are built in.
