    It's a matter of taste. The price is good but I dislike that mold (as Optimus).

    The mold isn't the greatest, but at that price it's a good buy.

    It's optimus Prime. Plus, he turns into a Dodge truck. Of course it's worth it!

    Too much work to bust out my camera and upload and insert, but he's bigger than an average Voyager (especially as of late). If you have or know the size of Movie Ironhide, Prime will be a tiny bit thicker and about two inches longer in alt mode. Same as bot mode; about the same thickness but a tad taller, depending on how you arrange the shoulder kibble.

    He is a good solid toy. You really couldn't have picked a better figure to start your Alternator experience with. Some Alts are mind-shatteringly complex, but OP is fairly simple, but still cool enough to be a fun transformation. His articulation in the knees is a little limited, so he can only stand and stand 'slightly epically', but he's a great figure. I hope you enjoy him!
