Optimus Prime Spychanger - RiD - Figure

Vehicle Mode
In vehicle mode, it looks like someone washed RiD Prime in hot water and gutted his missiles. Measuring 4" long, 1 1/2" wide and 1 3/4" high, Spychanger Prime is a very faithful representation of his larger counterpart. For reasons of cost expense, I imagine, The second set of wheels is merely decorative and do not turn, nor do they touch the ground. The ladder can be raised to a 30 degree angle, facing backwards, giving it a lot of mobility and also rotates on the base 90 degrees in either direction.

Transformation is as easy as... nevermind. Extend the front cab forward, slide the ladder back and rotate 90 degrees, flip the rear assembly up, stand robot and extend the arms.

Prime is the least impressive, to me, of this newest batch. While the Spychanger form is a decent homage to the larger toy, it's just aesthetically, not as pleasing. He's articulated at the neck, shoulders, and hips. Sadly, the hips only swing outward so he can do the splits. One thing I noticed that would have made the toy a little more playable is that if the seat on the ladder assembly had been shorter, you could have been able to swing the ladder/cannon under his left arm. Sadly, if you want Prime to stand, you have to use the ladder to help out.

Overall, he's not a terrible toy, but could have been a lot nicer. Get him if you're a Prime fan or like fire trucks.
