How It All Got Started

This robot stands 12 inches tall, features sounds and lights, and can be transformed into an awesome semi truck. The Autobot leader uses individually moveable fingers to wield several included weapons. Once a mere civilian, he is now Optimus Prime, a powerful force.

This Tranformers Prime action figure can be played with but it also makes an excellent display. A display stand is provided to show off this collector edition of Optimus Prime.

Children younger than age three should not play with this product because the small parts create a choking hazard.
