Transformers: Platinum Edition Optimus Primal

For some insane reason, someone thought reissuing this god awful toy at an exorbitant price was a good idea.

I hate this toy.  I hate myself for owning this toy.  It was a terrible toy when it first came out.  Much like dog shit, it has not improved with age.  The color scheme is inspired by Primal Prime.  It might have made more sense to just call him Optimus Prime since he is in Optimus Prime colors.  Yes, I just realized he is not transformed correctly.  The chest showing in robot mode is his ape chest and vice versa.  In my defense, he was packaged wrong, so I’m choosing to blame Hasbro.

Overall: Save your money.  This is crap.

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.

    The toy has not been made that is horrible enough to leave my collection. Hasbro and Fun Publications have certainly tried.
