Courtesy of the our very own Jtprime17 we can share for you the official description of the upcoming Transformers Collaborative: Transformers Amazon Prime Mash-up.
We confirmed the listing of this new crossover figure just a few days ago (together with Universal Monsters x Transformers Draculus). While we still don’t have any images of the figure itself, the description gives us several interesting hints about it:
- The figure can be transformed into a licensed Volvo Amazon Prime Truck
- It even includes 2 small Amazon Prime boxes that can be stored in the trailer
- Contains an ion blaster, a matrix of leadership that fits in the chest
The featured image on this news post is used only as a reference. Some rumors mentioned this figure would be a retool of Earthrise Optimus Prime. Stay tuned with TFW2005 for more updates and the official reveal. Read all the official product description after the break and sound off on the 2005 Board!
There has always been more to Transformers robots – but now fans can experience how these larger-than-life characters unite with other characters, teams and people who also have this special quality thanks to the Transformers Collaborative. There’s a lot more to Prime – a truckload more. Two worlds collide in this Transformers Amazon Prime Mash-Up Pack. A special delivery from Optimus Prime! The leader of the Autobots adopts a new mode and presents himself as the iconic Amazon Prime Truck. He believes that every sentient being (with a Prime Account) has a right to fast delivery. The figure can be transformed into a licensed Volvo Amazon Prime Truck in 37 steps and impresses with decor and details that are inspired by an Amazon Prime truck. It even includes 2 small Amazon Prime boxes that can be stored in the trailer. Ready to protect his shipments from all threats, Optimus Prime brings his ion blaster and a matrix of leadership that can be inserted into the character’s chest. Transformers and all related characters are trademarks of Hasbro. The VOLVO trademarks (word and device), other related trademarks, if applicable, and the Volvo designs are licensed by the AB Volvo Group.

Closed for now as there’s no telling if this will even be released in the way it was intended.
We’ll reopen this thread if/when news emerges indicating it’ll actually be released.
We can go through the whataboutism to defend Amazon all day, but when it comes down to it, Amazon deserves the notoriety it has. Dropping this collab was the right choice.
There was a product page selling (but mostly out of stock) the Amazon 'Prime' but now its gone entirely.

As noted above, mostly likely because its no longer happening and re-purposed as Holiday Prime.
Leader Holiday Optimus Prime reveal
good fucking riddance
the Amazon prime optimus is more than likely dead and was replaced by this, as expected.
What does that mean?
I see the product page on Amazon UK has been dropped now.
Amazon sucks and if people want to make a bold stand, good for them. But yeah…this is dead on. You think conditions are any better in China or Vietnam? Where employees steal shit off the factory floor to sell for a bit of extra cash to YouTubers?
Hell, if people are upset about Amazon's warehouse conditions…do not lookup Foxconn. You'll probably never want to use another electronic device again.
View attachment 29707428if we don't get an Amazon Prime figure that looks like this, I ain't interested.
an amazon truck has the amazon logo in big block letters on the trailer. volvo trucks have the volvo logo as a tiny symbol on the grille. its not really the same thing.
also, why would a transformer not have an autobot/decepticon symbol? its a part of the storyline. its not advertising a separate brand.
They are one of the largest companies in the world. You're bound to hear the horror stories, especially since their main points of operations—their warehouses—are in the US. I bet you'd hear similar amount of complaints for Hasbro manufacturing facilities if they were here in the US. They're tucked away overseas in Asia so you will hear very little. I don't see a point in a drawing a moral boundary when it comes to this. We're buying products from one of the largest toy companies. Most these companies are no different from one another.
It's not that weird considering Amazon Prime is a thing. It's quite fitting actually. It'd be more weird if it was a Target truck or something. Hell, I think that would still be a fun collaboration.
It’s just a weird line to draw, right? You’re essentially saying you’re okay with the advertisement of the Volvo symbol, the Autobot symbol, and the Hasbro brand mark, but the Amazon logo is the corporate advertising line you won’t cross?
That’s fine and absolutely do what you want to do with this hobby, but it seems like strange logic from the outside.
it is, but having it be amazon branded is both boring and weird. paying £60-80 (probably) for the privilege of having an advertisement on my shelf…?
Just rotate the waist 180 and it'll pretty much do it now. Just a matter of if they need to adjust the knee tooling so it'll bend the correct way.
I'm pretty sure the second use is judt the delayed Amazon Prime.
And not in a Kiss Players kind of way.
Now that we have confirmation that it'll be reused somehow, I wouldn't be surprised if part of that involves reshelling the cab into something generic so they don't have to pay licensing each time, and since the cab already forms the legs I imagine it shouldn't be too difficult to tweak the engineering a bit to allow the waist to be rotated 180˚.
Yeah, I'm not against brand-licensed figures like this in general, just not too keen on the idea of Bootlickimus Prime here representing Amazon. Piss bottles are the right of all sentient beings?
Amazon is pretty hated across the spectrum.
Amazon has patented a system that would put workers in a cage, on top of a robot
Maybe, but I'm not holding my breath. If this mold is as close as we're ever going to get to a G2 Hero Prime, I'll take it.
