    Hot Wheels Transformers Optimus Prime

    o of the biggest fandoms have come together for the first time with the Hot Wheels Transformers Optimus Prime. Modeled after his first appearance in Generation 1, this die-cast version of the Autobot leader can convert from a heavy-duty truck cab into a towering robot, ready to battle the Decepticons. We even designed the packaging so you could display it in either vehicle or robot mode.

    Features: Attachable hands and ion blaster
    Body Color: Spectraflame red and blue
    Body Type: ZAMAC
    Wheels: Custom Real Riders wheels

    What scale are modern figures? Like the Masterpiece figures for example.

    EDIT: Nevermind, just figured out all Hot Wheels are 1:64 scale.

    This might be an official reveal of the HW Bumblebee (which has pictures in another thread), but until we get more info, there’s no way of being sure.

    Unfortunately not at this point. We know about the Hot Weels Optimus and Bee even with official and in-hand images. Maybe when the full official reveal is up we may update. We also had a listing for a Mattel Creations Optimus Prime which we haven't had any images so far and the listing was taken down.

    Yes.

    Explains the "$$$." It's a solid die cast, likely rubber tire, transforming Hot Wheels car.

    That's pretty neat!

    I saw this on Ebay when searching for WST Optimus recently and assumed it was some new KO but it looks very similar to this release (just unchromed)

    It should have come with a tiny piece of classic orange Hot Wheels track with subtle Cybertronian markings to use as a stand, otherwise this is awesome. I think it looks more like a $50 thing than an $80 thing, but probably getting one for me and one as a gift anyway

    I understand that it’s solid diecast but I still don’t see how that equates to 80USD. It’s really pretty though, if it goes down in price I’ll probably grab it. It’s just a hard pill to swallow in a year where Missing Link Optimus came out for a comparable price.
