Gizmodo gets to play with the new Movie Leader Optimus Prime toy from the upcoming Transformers movie.
Movie Leader Optimus Prime
As featured on the cover of ToyFare 116, OPTIMUS PRIME appears in highly detailed robot and Semi tractor mode. Each mode realistically depicts OPTIMUS PRIME as he appears in the film.
In 2007, select figures across Leader, Voyager and Deluxe class feature Automorph Technology that enhances the vehicle to robot conversion of both AUTOBOT and DECEPTICON warriors. Moving one part of the robot or vehicle causes other parts to move, making armor plates and weapons shift automatically. Movie Leader OPTIMUS PRIME also features Advanced Automorph—an automatic conversion that triggers both lights and sounds.
Consumers of all ages can try out the electronic lights and sounds in Leader Class figures on-shelf with a special “Try-Me” window. The package also includes the following details about the struggle between the AUTOBOTS and the DECEPTICONS:For thousands of years, OPTIMUS PRIME and his AUTOBOTS have traveled through space in search of the AllSpark. For all that time, the AUTOBOT leader has held one goal in mind – to protect the universe from the evil of MEGATRON. For this massive, metal warrior, nothing is more important than freedom; he will sacrifice all for its preservation. He has fought for centuries, modifying his body into an unstoppable war machine, preparing for that day he knows is coming when he and MEGATRON meet for one final battle!
