Hasbro’s first Transformers exclusive for Comic Con 2017 pays tribute to the hero of THE LAST KNIGHT, complete with a really cool piece of movie memorabilia.
The latest SDCC exclusive coming from Hasbro has been revealed– a movie accurate Voyager Class Optimus Prime, based on his appearance on the latest live action movie happening all over us at the end of June. I’m no big fan of Michael Bay’s Transformers, and a big part of that is the busy, overly designed aesthetic of his robots… but I will say that Hasbro’s figure looks quite loyal to Prime’s on screen appearance.
He of course transforms from robot to truck mode, and features a slick glossy paint finish as well as a unique looking window display box. The coolest thing about this guy, though, is the “gift with purchase”– while supplies last, each Optimus prime will include an authentic piece of truck tire used during the filming of The Last Knight. It’s a great concept, and I hope we someday see this cool movie prop incentive offered for an actual good movie. How cool would that be??
