Thanks to TFW board member Kuma Style
, we have the first in-hand and extraordinarily detailed review of the oft delayed but highly anticipated figure, Art Storm Ultimetal Optimus Prime. Collectors have been extremely patient waiting to add this piece to their collections, but according to Kuma Style
the wait more than paid off.
Standing an impressive 17 inches tall and weighing in at almost 30 lbs, this figure is at first glance awe-inspiring. Full of diecast and sporting an incredible paint job, this figure is hugely (pun intended) impressive. What really sets this figure apart from previous incarnations of the famed Autobot leader is the removable armor over a highly-detailed and articulated skeleton. This figure is unique in that it allows collectors to remove parts of the armor to show the inner workings of Optimus, including functioning pistons in the wrists, ankles and ribs.
Additionally, the sheer mass of this figure dictates that special measures be taken into consideration with its engineering, so Art Storm added locking joints to support the dynamic posing that most collectors would be almost compelled to attempt with such an impressive and imposing figure. Lastly, the designers added lights and sound effects to truly bring this figure to life. Prime has light-up eyes, running lights and Matrix chamber, plus a moving mouthpiece that moves in tandem with a number of phrases spoken by Peter Cullen.
This is a massive and expensive addition to the world of Transformers collectibles and without a doubt a centerpiece of any collection.

The appointed hour draws near when Masterpiece Star Saber will be released in Japan - and via Oldcasper on Weibo
and fengqiaoken on ACtoys
, we have a look at the Cybertron 5th Commander in-hand.
Hailing from the 1989 show, Transformers Victory, Star Saber was one of a series of Japan-only Cybertron faction commanders. Much like his predecessor Ginrai / Powermaster Optimus Prime, he consists of a small pilot figure, a Brainmaster, which merges with a smaller jet vehicle to form a robot, which then in turn merges with the larger booster engine to form the full-scale Star Saber.
Masterpiece Star Saber is looking to be every bit the large-scale release to celebrate the latter years of the Japanese Generation 1 series. It is an amazing looking release which seems to be set to impress Masterpiece Transformers fans everywhere. Check out the new images attached to this post.Read Replies (0)
