Transformers Dark of The Moon was one of the biggest movies of 2011 and that means that the toys are in VERY high demand this Xmas 2011. One of the top toys that you want to check out if you know someone that loves Transformers Dark of the Moon is the Optimus Prime from MechTech. The Dark of the Moon Optimus Prime is able to transform into a vehicle and then back to a robot with ease. Of course Optimus wouldn’t be much of a transformer if not!
You will also get an Ion blaster that converts into a battle cannon as well. This version has been voted the top figure because it is the most realistic version that is VERY close to the movie version of Optimus Prime.
When you transform to a truck you can store the blaster behind a compartment in the truck so you don’t have to worry about losing parts. Just a note about the transforming process – if you are new to Transformers or have very young children you might have problems with folding back the arms that you have to do to transform into a truck, however I found after a few goes this gets a lot easier.
Another thing to note about the Transformers Dark of the Moon Optimus Prime is that the durability and quality of the item is very good! This is a relief because you know how things can get accidently broken when the kids get excited!
You can also check out the Megatron Dark of the Moon figure if you are looking to have a battle and once you have a few of these that are very close to the movie it does look awesome! This figure is awesome as an Xmas gift but you will have to hurry as these are set to sell out very quickly!
You will also notice small details like the scar on the helmet that Optimus Prime has in the movie.
In short if you are trying to pick the best Transformers Dark of the Moon Figure you cannot do better than the Optimus Prime figure.
Here is an overview of the features that you get with the Optimus Prime toy:
He lays his life on the line in the defence of his adopted world. Every action he takes, and every modification he makes to his formidable body, is done to protect Earth.
Spring into action with this vehicle-to-robot hero! As the war rages on, keep converting him back and forth, so he is ready to face whatever his enemies throw at him! Robot hero figure converts from vehicle mode to robot and back! Ion blaster converts to battle cannon! Weapons work with any MechTech Transformer figure! (Each sold separately.)
As mentioned in the features above – if you do check out the Megatron figure you will be able to use the weapons with this Optimus prime as well.
