~~~ Introduction ~~~
I remember being a small kid and whenever I heard this ...
Robots In Disguise !
More Than Meets The Eyes !"
... I knew that my favourite TV show was about to start !!!
The intergalactic battle between the brave and heroic Autobots and the evil and sneaky Decepticons was awesome and I loved Optimus Prime ... together with Luke Skywalker he was one of my heroes. When I grew up my love of Transformers stayed with me ... it's that cool vehicle/robot thing that does it for me !!! Then of course, a couple of years ago we were treated to the big screen return of the Transformers ... and erm, Megan Fox ;)
Anyway ... being a sci-fi fan and colector I have several versions of Optimus Prime (including my own original toy from way back then) but one of my favourites is a little guy who goes by the name of Optimash Prime !!!
~~~ Optimash Prime ~~~
Yup, that's right folks not content with dabbling with the Dark Side of the Force or being a costumed Superhero Mr Potato Head fancies himself as the leader of the Autobots now as well ... and yet again he does a pretty impressive job !!!
Optimash Prime is simply a toy that has been designed by a genius. The classic Mr Potato head has been given another impressive make-over and the Autobot parts that come with this potato body look awesome. The robot components are chunky and look extrememly impressive ... and of course behind the futuristic looking face mask you have Mr Potato Head's comical looking googly eyes !!!
You also get a miniature Optimash Prime truck ... which doesn't actually fit on to the body but is a great little collectable. As with all themed Mr Potato Heads you also get a selection of facial features and additional body parts which enable you to mix and match to create your very own custom toy ... hours of fun !!!
~~~ Price & Availability ~~~
Currently, Optimash Prime sells for around £10 and is available at both Argos and Toys R Us. I haven't seen any of these in some of the "cheaper shops" yet but I guess the recent release of the second Transformers movie has kept these on the bestselling toys list !!!
~~~ Final Thoughts ~~~
Optimash Prime is yet another successful outing for the classic Mr Potato Head ... he looks great and will provide hours of fun !!!
