Transformers: The Last Knight AllSpark Tech Starter Packs Wave 1 (Optimus Prime, Shadow Spark Optimus Prime)

Transformers: The Last Knight Toy Reviews

I have not yet gotten a hold of the individual figures yet. They came in at TRU and Target and lasted about one day before they were gone and have yet to come back in. Optimus Prime looks okay in robot mode. With some more paint apps they wouldn’t look bad in vehicle mode, but are very plain as is.

How they basically work is that the cube has different sound effects and phrases depending on which toy you put it in. It includes the transformation sound when you transform the toy. For more on the cube functionality watch this video:

What sucks about this is that we’ve had toys that have sound effects when transforming and when they move before. Putting that in the cube means that you can only get sound effects from one toy at a time unless you buy multiple starter packs.

These would have been better if they just put the electronics into all the toys and scrapped the silly cube. If Hasbro had put more effort into the deluxe Last Knight toys, and less into this gimmicky crap, the whole line would be better.

Thanks for reading!

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.
