Quite a nice Optimus toy. Heís got a complicated transformation, and a bunch of tabs to line up, but it flows logically.

He doesnít seem to want to stand well in a neutral pose and the feet transformation was a bit tight for me. Thatís about my only issue.

Second voyager Prime for me this year (after Siege) and both are great.

I would have got this figure if he came with a trailer. The fact he had a trailer in the movie but not with the toy just edges him out of my want list. If ever the toy is heavily discounted or re-released with a trailer I may pick it up.

It's pretty tricky and your son will need an assist. Maybe have a look at a video review and see if you think the transformation is within his current range of capability.

The transformation on this guy is great - right up there with some of the best movie-toy transformations. Going from a hyper-detailed robot to a minimalist, smooth boxy truck, really clever...

And it's really doable, despite how complex it looks, everything slots in pretty nicely and as long as you follow the sequence it all comes together. Being able to do the top and bottom half separately makes it a little simpler too, whereas lots of movie primes end up with arms and legs all over the place by the end of the process. This guy at heart still follows the classic G1 Prime transformation.

One of the best figures I've picked up this year (so far).
