We’ve got a great new gallery of a toy from the Age of Extinction line that never left Japan to share with you! Courtesy of TFW2005 member Russian fan, we have a look at AD-31 Armor Knight Optimus Prime.
Armor Knight Optimus Prime is to the regular Age of Extinction Leader Optimus Prime what Buster Optimus Prime was to the Revenge of the Fallen Leader Optimus Prime – a toy that takes the base Leader toy we got at mass retail and then improves on it, with remolded elements, new accessories, and a premium level of paint to become the definitive version. For Armor Knight Optimus Prime, this meant a lot of remolding including the chest, arms and head, the latter of which was also reworked to include a gimmick to allow Optimus’ face to switch from a faceplate head to an unmasked one. The paint is also a step up and really helps to put this one over. If you’ve not got a toy of this new Movie Optimus Prime, right now, this is the definitive item.
Check out Russian Fan’s photos of this gorgeous piece at the link below, including some shots of the toy with the Beelzeboss die-cast Sword of Justice – I’m told that the weight of metal does unfortunately make it hard for the toy to hold, but it looks truly boss in the robot’s hands.
