‘Tis the season as Hasbro introduces the all-new Transformers Generations Holiday Optimus Prime action figure, featuring holiday-inspired deco and details, including a Santa Claus Autobot faction logo on the trailer. Holiday Optimus Prime converts from robot to licensed Volvo truck mode in 37 steps and features green-tinted windows and snowy deco details. The figure comes with multiple accessories, including a candy cane ion blaster, the Matrix of Holiday Spirit and a truck trailer that can attach in truck mode that opens to become a battle station. Naughty or nice, Transformers Generations Holiday Optimus Prime is available 11/1 @ 1PM ET at Hasbro Pulse and additional fan channel retailers, just in time to deliver holiday cheer to all sentient beings.
It's a GREAT optimus prime figure, but don't you think they're overusing the earthrise trailer mold just a LITTLE bit?
