Time for another look at an upcoming Threezero piece – Transformers the Last Knight DLX Optimus Prime. Coming in at about 11 inches tall, the DLX line is mid range from Threezero, giving folks a sweet spot between their MDLX / standard Hasbro figures and the super big (and pricey) Premium scale. Prime is of course taller given his size on screen, so he rightfully stands well above the recent DLX TLK Bumblebee, though exact scale is not 100% here. The figure features 73 points of articulation, multiple accessory swaps for the hands, face, and weapons, plus lights in the eyes. Paint is top notch as usual, the movie toys really shine when Threezero does it right, and this version of Prime does. The fine folks over there sent us a copy a little early to take a look at, so read on to check out over 70 HD images and some additional thoughts. He hasn’t shipped in full yet, so if you dig him hit Threezero direct or our sponsors below to snag your copy!
And don’t forget Threezero’s Winterfest 2022 is going on now, an online event which has exclusives, sales and reveals. Check it out here.
Threezero DLX Transformers The Last Knight Optimus Prime
PURDY. I prefer the pre AOE/TLK version of Prime in the movies, but in physical form in front of you the Western Star Optimus is a beast. Lots of metal, red/blue popping off it, very crisp helmet and mask. It’s just sharp. If the design had a little more visible alt mode parts showing it would be perfect IMO. Toy wise, this thing is well engineered. Stiff firm joints, everything felt high end, tight while handling. Nothing broke during handling (and I ran it well), and not much popped off from pressure during posing. The lights in the eyes are good, but not as stark bright as some previous models. Articulation range is top notch, it’s like posing out a Marvel Legends figure, but 11 inches tall with diecast and automotive paint. Bottom line, if you dig the look from the movies and have the space/coin to do so, it’s worth a pick up. Check out some shots below and then head over to the 2005 Boards to see what the fans are saying!
