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!

About lmb3

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.

    It’s times like these I am grateful that I am not the target demographic. These remind me horribly of the original My First Transformers (they’re transformers because we say so.) They’ve finally succeeded in making a Prime that will not be part of the collection. God, they make me nostalgic for Animorphs, fer crissakes (don’t tell McFunPub, they’ll probably make a set out of that next.)
