Transformers Rescue Bots: Optimus Primal

Growing up I remember watching Transformers with my brother (I wasn't a huge fan, but it was something he liked) and when I had my own boys I was sure that Optimus Prime would be making an appearance in my home at some point.

It happened about 18 months ago.  We stumbled across Rescue Bots on Netflix and both the boys started talking Transformers.

Mr. K is still pretty obsessed with Rescue Bots.  He loves all things Transformers at the moment, and is really hoping that there are some new Rescue Bots themed toys under the tree on Christmas morning.

He won't be disappointed. Thanks to Hasbro, he will wake up to Optimus Primal waiting for him under the tree (and what is really funny, we were looking at toys online the other day and he saw it and said he wanted Santa to bring it for him!)

When it arrived, I took it out of the package to make sure that it worked (there should be demo batteries included, but you will want to change them to new batteries to make sure that they are working fully - the battery compartment is found on the back of one of the legs)

It's a super easy transform - you twist the body to get him into dino mode and press a button on the top shoulder to change back to bot mode.  In dino mode he can chomp, and in bot mode he speaks!

He is going to be so excited when he wakes up to find this under the tree!

  1. Forget about my kids, I think my husband would love these! ;) The toys they're bringing out that are similar to toys we used to play with are fun to see :)

  2. I think once you become a Transformers fan, it's for life! Hubby was a fan as a child and now naturally he has influenced our son since a young age. I think he was about two or three when he got his first Transformer. Optimus Prime and Bumblebee are his two ultimate favs. This could be a gift under the tree this year! Thanks for sharing another great review!

  3. That's totally awesome and I know my 5 year old would totally love this! My boys totally started watching Rescus Bots on Netflix too!

  4. How cool are these, I remember my kids playing with the orignals

  5. My brother played with Transformers growing up and me with Barbies. My boys would love this. It is so cool.

  6. This is cool! My son would love it.

  7. My grandson Sebastian would love this

  8. Transformers have been around for a long time, love them

  9. My son wants a Transformer for Christmas. This would be great.

  10. This is the only thing on my sons Christmas list!! And he is telling every Santa he sees!!
