Optimus Prime Voyager Transformers Siege WFC-S11
Part of the first wave of Siege Voyager Class figures, Optimus Prime transforms from robot to short-smokestacked Cybertronian armored truck and back. For an inexpensive mass-retail release, Optimus’s robot mode is very accurate to his design from the original cartoon (albeit with added details) and also features excellent poseability on par with a Masterpiece toy, resulting in a version of the character that gives collectors lots of bang for their buck. He includes two weapons compatible with the C.O.M.B.A.T. System—the “W-50 Dual-Mech Energon Strikeshield,” which is an axe that transforms into a shield, and the “W-M3 RF Ion Blaster.” Both weapons can combine to form the “Sentrystrike Ultra-Blaster.” An argument could be made that being able to flip around Optimus’s underarm kibble to form underslung gatling guns is an undocumented gimmick. Optimus Prime also features “battle damage” paint applications on several parts of his body, as well as multiple hardpoints all over himself and his weapons to accommodate “Fire Blasts” from the Battle Masters assortment, which can be used to simulate blaster fire or explosions.
