Toy Review: Transformers: Lost Age (Age of Extinction) Battle Command Optimus Prime

TFLA-OP01-1

This Optimus Prime toy is part of the Japanese Lost Age line, their name for Age of Extinction.  Most of that line is made up of One Step Changers.

TFLA-OP01-2 TFLA-OP01-3

Vehicle Mode: Optimus Prime’s vehicle mode is very cool.  Other than the hinges on the fuel tanks it’s one of the best AOE Optimus Prime Vehicle modes.

TFLA-OP01-4

Battle Station Mode: Well, I think I would like it better if it wasn’t dependant on Optimus Prime sitting in vehicle mode with it on his back.  Then it might be pretty great.  As is, not so much.

TFLA-OP01-5 TFLA-OP01-6

Robot Mode: He looks great in robot mode, and it would be virtually impossible for him to tip over.  He’s got a great head sculpt.  They sort of gave him a Silverknight look around his shoulders, but nowhere else.  Flight mode is okay, but this toy is not even remotely in the same class as Jetwing Optimus Prime.

Overall: It’s a cool toy, but nothing really special.  If you aren’t a completist you can skip it.

Thanks for reading!
