Even today, the Transformers franchise has many fans, and merchandise counts in the hundreds, if not thousands. And of course, figurines representing Autobots (the good guys) or Decepticons (the bad guys) are the main part. There is something for all prices, but the model presented recently by Robosen – and already available in the United States for a few months – may cause the wheels to creak.

If Robosen’s Optimus Prime convinced you, you could consider acquiring the trailer as well equipped as the robot in servomotors, joints and other sound effects, but almost as expensive (729 €). Finally, the absolute and wealthy fans will not hesitate in front of the Optimus Prime bundle and its trailer launched at 1599 €. Because when you love…
