    I was looking for Transformers on Walmart and spotted this pillow and looked so cute so I bought it. I do not normally like cute things but I am a big movie fan and like Optimus Prime. Here is the listing:

    In Package pics. It is a clear bag with a label sealed with tape.

    It is very soft and cuddly as expected.

    The details are impressive for a pillow, The flames, rims, and Autobot logo are tampographed.

    The tires and underside are covered in fuzzy material.

    The wheel covers are also separate pieces.

    Overall, it is a cute addition to the bedroom. The kids will love this since they can push it around on the floor like a truck and cuddle with it to bed. it can also be used as a small pillow, unlike the action figures. The only drawback is that it does not convert. But there exists an Optimus Prime pillow in robot mode made a few years earlier. That looks kind of weird to me though.

    Edit: the headlights and taillights can can glow in the dark.

    It's no Softimus Prime, unfortunately.

    It's a pity they couldn't at least have had a picture of Optimus in robot mode printed on the bottom of the truck, like a plushie version of an RPM.
