Motto"As a team, we can accomplish anything"
ProfileOptimus Prime is a young (by Cybertronian standards) commander of a ragtag and largely inexperienced group of misfit Autobots. He's a born leader, a natural tactician, a dedicated never-say-die fighter and a master of improvisation in the face of adversity. Unassuming, humble, friendly and cheerful, Prime comes across as "The Bot Next Door." He takes his mission and his men with the utmost seriousness, but is still able to relate to them as a regular guy. He's not the kind of leader who needs to bark orders to command respect (besides, he's got Ratchet to do that for him).
Character BioOptimus Prime is the young commander of a ragtag inexperienced group of Autobots. Heís a born leader, a never-say-die fighter, humble, friendly, and cheerful. Optimus Prime is not the kind of leader who needs to bark orders to command respect. He is usually the first to join the fight and the last to leave it putting himself before any member of his team.
Robot Mode PowerOptimus Prime's main weapon is his battle axe. It is an Energon-based weapon that has multiple purposes. The axe blade can modify into a laser blade, it can also grow to cut large objects. The handle can grow in length for a pole-vault style attack, and the back of his axe has a built-in thruster for added lift and boost of great speeds.
Optimus Prime is a walking multi-utility knife with ability to convert any part of his robotic body to into a tool or gadget. His arms and legs can hyper-extend, he can whip grapples and swing his way around Detroit. Optimus Prime can also "spike" into any computer or machine to control it. Axe? Smokescreen? Hang Glider? Fire Extinguisher? He has all of these tools and much more; but he isnít just stocked with tools, he is clever about how he uses them.
