The lights are on
At Game Informer, we're big fans of High Moon's Transformer series as well as the televisions shows and comics. So we can't help but spotlight this incredibly detailed Optimus Prime figure from Takara Tomy and Action Toys. The figure of the leader of the Autobots can be purchased for a low price of ¥78,000, roughly equal to $800 in the U.S., but comes with many features.
The figure contains multiple metal parts, light and sound functions that can be activated by a remote control, and numerous movable joints that allows for different poses. It has completely removable armor that reveal the inner mechanics of Optimus, including the Autobot Matrix of Leadership. The figure also comes with the his Energon ax and blaster, which can be disassembled as well.
The Optimus Prime figure is expected to release in 2014. Check out more pictures below.

this look amazing but $800 no way
I'm so sad that it doesn't transform.
Oh well, that is far too hefty a pricetag for me anyway.
"I am Optimus Prime and I am broke"
That looks really awesome!... just not $800 awesome. I'm sure it'll be on Reiner's desk soon enough.
Transformers was one of the best television shows and had great toys while I was growing up. I would never buy this expensive model however if someone were to give me one or let me win one (maybe a giveaway through GAME INFORMER or something then I would just love it!
For $800 you would think that they would include his trailer and roller. Cool figure but costs way too much.
wait, this is a TRANSFORMER, right? why does it not transform?

But that doesn't even look as detailed as some of the $300 figures out there, and he can't transform. No transform equals no deal, yo.
someone make a parody called Learning to transform again with this figure
While this is super cool looking I did not see any photos of it transformed? It seems strange to me that a transformer figure cannot transform. Oh well, it is way out of my price range anyway.
Time to start hitting the coin block again... My poor head :'(
The figure costs more than my rent. Not something I am interested in anyway as I don't collect figures, but it is hard to believe it costs that much money. To think I begrudgingly bought the little one a TMNT Sewer Playset for $100 for Christmas (and believe me I think that is very overpriced as well).
Can he transform?
Suddenly, that Titanfall collectors edition doesn't seem so expensive anymore.
