Transformer of the Day for September 13, 2009

OPTIMUS PRIME

-Faction: Autobot
-Era: Animated (2008-2009)
-Function: Earth-bound Commander
-Motto: “Earth is Under My Protection”
-Notable Toy: Voyager (Hasbro, TBD)

Notes: It wouldn’t be a modern-era Transformers line without multiple reiterations of Optimus Prime. Cybertronian deluxe class. Battle-damaged deluxe class. Voyager class. And Roll-Out Command supreme class. To say nothing of Activators and Bumper Battlers. While these main figures have their advantages, they have their disadvantages too. The scale is wrong for all the figures except for the voyager, whose weapons are way off. So it’s very exciting to see Hasbro releasing an upgraded deluxe version called Wingblade Prime (at the voyager price point). Fortunately, the weapons can be added to our voyager-class Primes. So we’ll get to the perfect figure one way or another!
