Check out this amazing Optimus Prime toy!
Here’s more evidence that Japan gets all the cool toy designs … Amazon Japan has a listing for a special edition Transformers: Dark of the Moon Blu-ray which includes an amazingly detailed and clear plastic Optimus Prime toy! Now, I gotta say I didn’t like TDTOM. In fact, I HATED IT until there was about a half hour left in the film. That’s when it actually got good as Michael Bay didn’t have to focus on his weak story telling skills anymore and got to focus on blowing crap up on film. Check it out up close …
The clear, plastic toy is based on the Dual Model Kit made by Takara Tomy. It stands about 10″ tall and does have articulating arms and retractable swords. Note that Clear Prime can point, move his arms, and change standing positions. Sadly though, it doesn’t transform into a Semi Truck, and from what I can tell, you still have to put it together which looks to be quite the challenge. But who cares?! It even has a compelling look in the face along with those piercing eyes. A very nice piece for Transformers fan looking for a unique looking display piece which pops.
If I could swing it, I’d spend the almost $190 just to get that toy and toss the Blu-ray! But that would be almost as much a waste as buying a ticket to the movie.
