Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters Voyager Optimus Prime (New Mold)
Vehicle Mode: It’s taken a while for me to track it down, but I’ve finally got the new simplified mold Beast Hunters Voyager Optimus Prime. The first thing to know is that it is quite a bit larger than the original design, while still staying the at the same price point. I really like it a lot more than the original version. The truck has great painted details, and the simplified transformation kept me from swearing even once while transforming him, a rarity with Transformers over the last seven years. As advertised, he’s far simpler to transform, but it takes nothing away from the toy at all.
Robot Mode: I’m not crazy about the wheels on his back in robot mode, but otherwise I really like it. We’ll have to see what happens going forward, but at least for now, Hasbro’s toy simplification seems to be going in the right direction.
Thanks for reading!
