Optimus Prime & Over-Run - Armada - Figures

In an attempt to make Optimus Prime more affordable, Hasbro releases a smaller, more articulated Optimus Prime that out does his previous incarnation by leaps and bounds. This new version of Prime is a bit smaller than the cab that comes with the more expensive version released earlier this year. Don’t let the size worry you though. This toy is a lot nicer than the original.

Over-Run is a gray jet with a neat little feature; retractable front landing gear. He also folds up to form Prime’s handgun and can be placed on the rear of the truck to give Prime some firepower in vehicle mode.

Now, if you already own The larger Optimus Prime toy, you will be able to transform this one no sweat. And, like the other toy, this one suffers from smokestacks-don’t want-to stay attached-syndrome. Over-Run simply folds out the arms and flips down the nose of the jet. The wings can be positioned back, front or out to the sides.

The best part about robot mode is that he doesn’t look as though his head is coming out of his chest like the larger version does. Prime features full neck, shoulder and elbow articulation, waist, hips, and knee joints as well, making him the best-articulated figure in the Armada line to date. Attach a Mini-Con to the post on his back and move it up and down to activate his “punching” action. Really, all it is are his shoulders moving back and forth. Not bad and at least it doesn’t get in the way of the toy. As stated earlier, Over-Run can transform into his handgun. He can also be stored on the Mini-Con port on Prime’s… rear.

Overall, if you buy just one Transformers Armada toy, make it Supercon Optimus Prime. You won’t be disappointed. Grade: A
