Last week, I posted about purchasing some Transformers toys. This post, I will cover some insights into one of the toys.
Toy 1: Transformers Titanium Series OPTIMUS PRIME vs. MEGATRON Exclusive 2-Pack Boxed Set
I never liked all the stupid versions of Optimus Prime since G1. They all pale in comparison to the G1 cartoon character. There’s something about the original G1 Optimus Prime that has made it an icon of my generation. With that said, the Galoob/MicroMachines Transformers RID (Robots In Disguise) Titanium 6″ die-cast Optimus Prime toy is freakin’ awesome.
Here’s some snapshots of the toy. They also have a complete review of the toy on that page as well. This version of Optimus Prime is actually from the comic book series, “Transformers: The War Within” which features Prime before he received the Matrix. Pretty slick. I’m gonna have to look into getting the comic book as well. It was published in 2002.
Megatron also came in this set. Here’s some great photos taken by Remy. He takes sharp photos of Transformers toys. I was never a fan of Megatron being a pistol (from G1), so I’m happy to see different alt modes for him. Megatron being a tank is a great idea. However, the tank form for this toy is lacking. It looks like Megatron just laying on his face to transform. Lame. The robot mode is alright. I’m happy to see the original Megatron head from G1 used here.
