Hasbro Transformers Age of Extinction Optimus Prime One Step FigureI kind of revel in the chance to play with this kind of toy, mostly because so many fans hate them without touching one. I find that baffling - I understand skipping them, but posting how much you hate it? Try one first. Optimus Prime turned out to be pretty good, but not perfect. This figure is well-painted, transforms nicely, and was rather well-sculpted but I think fans are going to have a hard time enjoying this for the asking price. It's cool. I think as a kid, you'd enjoy playing with one. I like it. But for your money? Nah.

If you loved Beast Wars and the Scout-size toys from Energon and Cybertron, that's sort of what this toy is. A silver button above the windshield triggers the transformation, causing the legs, arms, and chest to all swing into place. The truck itself has rolling wheels that sorta kinda roll adequately, and the vehicle mode is appropriately trucked up. Sure, there are visible robot arms... but I don't even know what to say at this point. Someone at Hasbro was told to make 30+ Optimus Prime toys for this movie, so here we go.

The robot mode stands as tall as a Scout from 2003-2007, and unlike the crappy Lockdown his arms move. Optimus Prime has rotating shoulders and 5mm fists - so you can give him a BMOG gun or whatever, if you like. The shoulders swivel out, the neck rotates, and that's really about all this toy is going to do other than transform and transform well. It works, and the proportions are decent enough. It is not impressive, were it a $5 toy you'd probably say that it was pretty good. A toy like this can't compare with things like a Age of Extinction $10-$15 Deluxe toy, at all. Even at discounted $8 prices, it doesn't compare favorably to other toys on the shelves in 2014. It's very OK, it's something you might get as a stocking stuffer, or in an Easter basket, and say "this is way better than socks." It is! It is better than socks.

A Silver Knight repaint is coming in a multi-pack, and the toy itself is on the happy side of adequate. It's sort of a transforming statue, and it has a metal magnet thing in his feet that seems that it activates features in a Japanese toy we won't get here. It's a fun desk toy because it's stable and stands well, and you can fidget with it while you pretend to listen to some jerk on the phone calling you when you were busy checking box office receipts. If this goes on clearance - and I assume that it will - get one cheap. If it's like four bucks or less, this is the greatest thing. For $5, it's pretty good. At $8, keep your $8 and get yourself a nicer, bigger toy.
