    Now, this is a very short review, with very crap pics, of a cheap (£7.99 from Argos) and cheerful, sturdy and simple toy for wee 'uns, which I saw looking at me from a shelf with its G1 Oppy face-sculpt and its G1-toy yellow eyes....

    ...naturally I had to buy it. :) 

    Dinosaur Optimae have been lacking in my Optimus collection so far anyway!

    Robot mode. Head permanently tilted to one side as though he's contemplating whether to use the drill or the teeth (seriously, it's a robots-with-teeth weekend or something), this Optimus is not a bot with which to frak.

    Not that he'd ever actually use that word. Optimus doesn't say swears. Except when talking to Kup.

    Transformation is (as you'd expect) extremely simple (but so am I, so I'm not tired of it yet!)

    Turn him at the waist...

    ...and a T-rex takes his place!

    No articulation in this mode either of course, but he does (it's in vogue, don'cha know) have a gimmick!

    From a right grumpy-looking 'rex...

    ...to an even-grumpier one, about to spit out a tetchy and disdainful remark.

    Plenty of character in this bot, which is a super-solid, well-made toy with a great headsculpt and a fun one-step transformation. I'd think children of the right age would love it; I'm pretty taken with it myself. :)

    And here he is with some of his folks by the incandescent lip of an active volcano.

    Cybertronians love volcanoes.

    It is known.

    And that swear is "Feck off Kup!" ;) 
    We really need to talk to Optimus about Father Ted, people don't talk like that in real life.

    He is such a little cutie. Optimus in both of his modes melts my heart.

    If you had teeny tiny lil arm's you would be a tad grumpy too, so can't blame him for having a bad mood though!!

    But what a great face with his all GGRRRRR and stuff.

    :p
