I'm relatively new to the world of being a fan of Transformers, but I feel like I can tell when I see a pretty amazing action figure of one of those characters. ThreeA's new Optimus Prime Classic Edition certainly fits the bill, standing 16" tall with 59 points of articulation, interchangeable parts that include an Energon Axe and magnetically attached wheel wells, and a whole list of features besides.

There's just one problem: It doesn't actually transform into a truck. Well, that and the fact that it'll set you back $390, but I feel like the former is the bigger issue here.

Here's the official description:

Hasbro and 3A proudly present the first release in the epic Transformers Generation One (TFG1) Premium Scale Collectible Series: the heroic Leader of the Autobots, OPTIMUS PRIME! Taking direct inspiration from the 1980s toy and animated series character model, Ashley Wood and the development team at ThreeA have taken a remixed approach that blends their uniquely stylized aesthetics while retaining Optimus Prime’s original iconic look.

Optimus Prime Classic Edition stands approximately 16” (40.64cm) tall and bears a stylized brawler-esque physique. The Classic Edition features a hefty 30% die-cast body, heavily weathered metallic paint, LED illuminated detailing, and an incredible range of articulation – including opening Matrix Chamber. The tankards and wheel wells are removable for a more streamlined animation style appearance. TFG1 Optimus Prime figure comes complete with interchangeable Energon Axe and his iconic Blaster Rifle.
