A surprising addition to the LEGO ICONS product range, 10302 Optimus Prime is also an impressive tribute to the beloved Transformers character. It usually sells for £159.99, but you can now grab it for £124.99 instead.
As the leader of the mechanical Autobots, Optimus Prime leads the fight against the malevolent Decepticons. Like all denizens of Cybertron, Optimus Prime can transform into a vehicle and back again – typically, a cab over truck.
While transforming Optimus Prime toys have been available for many years, this is the first one to be made from LEGO bricks. Once assembled, Optimus Prime sports his classic red and blue colour scheme and stands at 35cm tall. He can transform into a truck without removing any of his main components, making this an impressive LEGO toy.
Several different accessories are included with the set, which Transformers fans will certainly appreciate. These include Optimus Prime’s ion blaster, energon axe, an energon cube and the Matrix of Leadership – which can be stored in the Autobot’s chest. There’s even a removable jetpack and an alternate waist panel; this ensures a more accurate appearance when Optimus is in vehicle form.
Since this set has recently been subject to a price increase, now is an excellent time to pick this LEGO set up. Purchasing the set from Zavvi will incur a £1.99 delivery charge; if you’re in the US, you’ll pay just £3.99 instead.
