Transformers Authentics Bravo Autobot Optimus Prime Action FigureWhile it would be easy to dismiss this Optimus Prime as a small version of the bigger Alpha toy... uh... it is. This little one is about 5-inches tall. The other one is about 7-inches tall. It's a bit smaller, has no elbows, and has less paint - but the transformation is more or less identical. I found them at two separate Family Dollar stores, with the bigger one in a better-to-do neighborhood than the smaller one. Coincidence? Maybe.

This figure reminds me a lot of the 1990s - if you bought Machine Wars or Beast Wars, the fact that you've got a lot of ball joints and minimal paint should be familiar. While he doesn't have elbows, the 5-inch figure has 7 points of articulation. The shoulders are a little stiffer and more awkward than the larger counterpart, but they move. The fists are still 5mm, but they're just a bit tighter - I'd be afraid of breaking them. I would not necessarily advise forcing in some weapons. I like the painted Autobot symbol, and I miss the lack of headlights. The black border around the windows of the larger toy is absent.

The Optimus Prime truck is pretty much the same, but smaller. It doesn't do anything other than roll around a bit. It's a truck. You're welcome.

From the front, it's decent - you get blue windows, a silver grille, but no lights. It's not exactly simpler than the other class, but it's a little less... less. It's just a truck. Look, I can't really point to anything other than this being a $7 Happy Meal toy, basically.

The bigger toy has triple the mass for about a 50% increase in price - it's so much better, I'm sitting here regretting having actively hunted down the smaller toys. I don't need it, but I have it - they're both very good, but the big one is better. All things being equal, get the big one - it's worth the ten bucks. If you have a kid you hate, go ahead and get him the inferior smaller toy. He won't know. But you will. Oh, you'll know you stuck it to him.
