If you’d told me several years ago that we’d be getting a new Transformers figure from Threezero, I’d be confident that it would be made well, but my interest would be pretty low. The Michael Bay-helmed films of the “modern” Transformers just aren’t for me, particularly with their overdesigned appearances. However, thanks to the recent Bumblebee film, the Generation 1-inspired looks of my favorite Robots in Disguise are back in vogue. So color me enthused that Threezero and Hasbro are set to release Optimus Prime himself as part of their Premium line.

Optimus’ iconic 1980s look is hard to improve upon, in my opinion, so remaining as faithful as possible to it while adding some modern touches in order to bring it to life was a smart move on the designers of the film. Threezero takes that smart decision and translates it into a beautifully crafted 19-inch tall work of art. 

The diecast metal added to the frame give the leader of the Autobots an authentic sheen and heft, which makes it somewhat surprising that he has such amazing articulation. 

This Transformer doesn’t transform, but that chances of me transforming this figure and losing the amazing robot on my shelf in favor of a truck were pretty slim.

While looking gorgeous would be enough for me, Optimus also comes with some neat interchangeable extras in the form of armor pieces that allow you to give him a more Cybertronian appearance. Personally, I don’t think they look that different, but I’ll take whatever I can get. I’m not complaining!
