So, I’m a collector just like I’m sure many of you reading this are. I collect Pokemon cards, action figures, and especially comics. I understand the whole collecting figures and stuff, I even have a friend who collects Transformers hardcore. I’ve seen her pick up all kinds of stuff, she even does videos on some of that stuff. Actually, I’ll link to her here! Danni Dolphin. My knowledge of Transformers is pretty limited but even I can tell that this Optimus Prime is going to be one hell of a buy. This thing is absolutely insane! It transforms all on its own! Kotaku posted about it on their Twitter along with a little video that I’ll put below so you can check it out for yourself. Let me make this absolutely clear: There’s a $700 self-transforming Optimus Prime coming from Hasbro.
