Transformer of the Day for April 29, 2009


-Faction: Autobot
Armada-Energon-Cybertron (2002-2006)
-Function: Leader
Freedom is the Right of All Sentient Beings”
-Notable Toy: Crystal Prime (Takara, 2003)

Notes: It’s high time we had another crack at Optimus Prime and I can think of no better example than “Bendy Prime”, brought to us during the Armada years. Truth be told, Armada is a terrible cartoon for which I do not care. However, some of the toys are really nice and Optimus Prime is lucky enough to be one of them. Be it the deluxe version (or his many repaints, like the crystal version shown above), or the Leader class edition that comes with an automatically transforming trailer, Prime rules!

(Apologies and thanks to shmax.com and bbts.com for the toy images.)
