The auto-transforming Optimus Prime had been teased a few months ago. Finally, the Autobot leader would convert from his truck form to robot mode without the assistance of our human hands. Now we know the Transformer’s price tag and estimated release date.
The 19″ tall Prime is styled after his G1 appearance and comes with the price tag of $749.99 for the “collector’s edition.” Spring 2022 is the targeted release window, according to the pre-order page at Hasbro Pulse.
Prime is looking very similar to the video that was released four months ago. The photos indicate that the weird pillow plate behind Optimus’s head is now gone, although it shows up in some random pics that may be from the earlier design.
