Ever wanted to own your very own Optimus Prime but have no room in your driveway for him? Fear not, this smaller-scale Robosen Optimus Prime toy is the perfect substitution, you absolutely have to check this out!
Robosen, the world-leading innovative robotics company, today announced its latest robot, Rovosen Elite Optimus Prime is now available to purchase here in the UK.
Back in 2022, Robosen entered the UK market with the world’s first auto-converting Transformers robot, the limited-edition Flagship Optimus Prime. The robot sold out in retailers such as Smartech Selfridges London, Hasbro Pulse UK, Sports Direct, House of Fraser and Game, over the busy Christmas period.
The ultimate item for any Transformers fan sold out quicker than Turbo Man from the movie Jingle All the Way.
Where the Flagship Optimus Prime was a collector’s item for die-hard Transformers fans, the brand-new Elite Optimus Prime has a broader target audience, allowing more people to enjoy the hi-tech entertainment experience brought by consumer-grade robots.
The Elite Optimus Prime is lighter (30%), smaller, and more portable, than its predecessor. It also has an added layer of software and technology that allows it to really do it all, including auto-transforming at the touch of a button or the sound of your voice.
Created and engineered by the Robosen robotics experts in collaboration with Hasbro, the robot stands at an impressive 16 inches tall and is painstakingly crafted from over 5,000 components. Equipped with 125 sound effects and voiced by the original actor, Peter Cullen, this is an authentic reproduction of the classic Generation 1 character redefined for fans from every generation.
With 27 servo motors being run by 58 microchips, this version of Optimus Prime is the closest you can get to the real thing, with 39 commands including “Roll Out”, “Convert”, and “Attack!’. Optimus will respond to your voice or give him your orders by the exclusive Robosen app.
Rocky Luo, General Manager – Europe, Robosen, commented:
We are extremely excited to bring the Robosen Elite Optimus Prime to a UK audience after the success of thelimited-edition Optimus Prime at Christmas in the UK. Our interactive products have been developed and nurtured over many years by our developers and scientists to include theworld’s most innovative robot technology. Their customisable features create a genuine human connection like never seen before, and the Elite Optimus Prime really is the Autobot for all.
you’re not just paying for Optimus, you’re paying for what is potentially the future of the toy market. A real Optimus Prime that can transform at the touch of a button is the stuff my child dreams were made of!
But are your childhood dreams worth the rather steep £699 pricetag?
We’ll be the judge of that when we get our hands on one (hopefully) soon.
At the press of a button, the swipe of a finger or even via voice command your Robosen Optimus prime toy will auto-convert into the robot!
How incredible is that?!
I absolutely cannot wait to get my hands on one of these but from what I’ve seen of the toy so far, it feels like it’s just a party piece, for show only and isn’t your stereotypical toy. More of a sit back and watch this lovely robot do all of its cool and wonderful gestures. It’s a spectator toy and I’m happy to sit back in awe and watch it do it’s thing!
