Thanks again to YouTuber Transformers And Power Rangers Toy Reviews who have posted a video review of the Transformers 4 Age of Extinction Smash and Change Optimus Prime action figure. The reviewer says: "Transformers 4 Age of Extinction Smash and Change Optimus Prime isn't a good toy, but his saving grace is he actually works, unlike the Flip and Change Grimlock figure. I do not recommend this guy, but I could see his clicky-pen transformation being interesting if a future figure did more with it." Watch the review to see why.
