Funko POP! Retro Toys: Transformers - Optimus Prime 10-inch
The Funko POP! Retro Toys: Transformers – Optimus Prime 10-inch Jumbo Sized Funko Pop! Vinyl Figure has just been unveiled as a Walmart Exclusive.
The Autobots leader in their war against the Decepticons, Optimus Prime, is a noble robot who believes that freedom is the right of all sentient beings. He has been defeated many times throughout his different phases but always returns in his darkest and most necessary hour.
The original form of Optimus Prime in the 1984 animated Transformers movie was a semi-heavy truck. For the 2007 film, the decision was made to transform him into a Peterbilt 389 XMAS truck. The semi-heavy version would only allow the hero to be about 20 feet tall. So with the change, Optimus became 32 feet tall.
In Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, the production decided to create a more faithful Optimus form. To do so, they altered and customized a Western Star 4900 SB.
In Transformers: Age of Extinction, Optimus appears as a semi-heavyweight in Mark Wahlberg’s character’s garage, finally paying homage to the original alternate form of Optimus Prime in the 1984 animated film.
Optimus Prime Jumbo Sized Pop! is expected to be released on May 30 and is now available for pre-order in the links below.
