Hot Wheels Transformers Optimus Prime celebrates 40 years

Hasbro and Mattel are teaming up to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Transformers with an all-new Hot Wheels Collector version of Optimus Prime.

The two companies made the announcement on Tuesday that a fully transformable version of Optimus Prime will be joining the Hot Wheels Collectors line. The toy will come in a package reminiscent of his original packaging from 1984.

Two of the biggest fandoms have come together for the first time with the Hot Wheels Transformers Optimus Prime. Modeled after his first appearance in Generation 1, this die-cast version of the Autobot leader can convert from a heavy-duty truck cab into a towering robot, ready to battle the Decepticons. We even designed the packaging so you could display it in either vehicle or robot mode.

  • Hot Wheels® Transformers™ Optimus Prime
  • Features: Attachable hands and ion blaster
  • Body Color: Spectraflame red and blue
  • Body Type: ZAMAC
  • Wheels: Custom Real Riders wheels
  • Base: Die-cast chassis
  • Window Color: Light smoke-tinted
  • Scale: 1:64

The Hot Wheels Transformers Optimus Prime will cost $80 and will be available on Mattel Creations on May 21, 2024 at 9am Pacific. These sorts of exclusives tend to sell out very quickly, so be sure to act fast if you’re looking to add this to your collection.
