Fans have been begging a full-blown IDW style Optimus Prime ever since Hasbro released the Generations legends class Optimus Prime with Roller for the Thrilling 30 series in 2013. He had the look, but not the scale and for whatever reason, Hasbro and Takara have been kind of taunting us with figures that are close but, not there yet, ultimately leaving the job to Third Party companies.
Today's Prime shot takes a look at some of the hits and a miss in the Generations Cyber Battalion Optimus Prime that was based on the Thrilling 30 IDW design. Hasbro scaled it up to a 7-inch figure that otherwise totally falls short when it comes to articulation and capturing the wonderful convergence of G1, Japanese Otaku, and Classics styling that the IDW character reflects. Fortunately, we have had many wonderful offerings from thrid party companies in the form of the Spiritual Leadership upgrade kit for Combiner Wars Optimus Prime (left) and the totally original design of the Zeta EX-01 figure (right) that is one of the best fully transforming interpretations yet. Of course, there are many more that we will look at in future posts.
