Transformers: Rescue Bots Academy Wave 6 Optimus Prime

Optimus Prime

Optimus Prime was crazy hard to track down. I am pretty sure it’s never made it to retail in the USA. Not sure it even made it to Canada. I got mine from a toy seller in the UK. His vehicle mode is tow truck. His color are great in both modes. He looks pretty good in robot mode, my only complaint is that he uses the design where his arms are not attached at the shoulder, but at his waist.

Overall: Optimus Prime is pretty great, but if you don’t want to spend a lot of money importing him, Hasbro has recently announced a slight repaint that will be available in the USA. Neither Walmart nor Target seem to be carrying Rescue Bots anymore, so time will tell if he’s available in stores. The only place I find Rescue Bots anymore is at Walgreens.

Thanks for reading!
