Packaging

Hasbro has had a habit of over-packaging their SDCC exclusives. Fortunately, they seem to have simplified things this year. The SDCC The Last Knight Optimus Prime comes packaged in a bubble on top of a rectangular base with a sort of slipcover. You’ll notice that in the back there is empty space with a square where it looks like something is missing. It sort of is.

Optimus Prime Tire Piece

This is a piece of Optimus Prime’s tire from the movie. I assume the toy packaging was created with the plan to put the tire inside. However, that did not happen. It was given out separately with the purchase of the toy at SDCC. I don’t know if the ones that are being sold via HasbroToyShop.com come with it or not. I grabbed this one on eBay for not much more than retail so as not to miss out on the tire piece.

Optimus Prime

Read my review of the retail version here. In vehicle mode he has a different flame pattern, as well as flames on his rear fenders and silver paint between his rear wheels. In robot mode he has additional paint apps on his legs and feet. His arms have more blue on them, and he has more detailed red and blue paint on his chest, along with a few other minor paint additions.

Overall: Is it a better paint job? I little, though I prefer the retail version’s paint apps on his sword and shield. Frankly the best thing about this toy is the tire piece.

Thanks for reading!
