Is Transformers 3's Optimus Prime A Giant Robotic Butterfly?

If you saw last night's new Transformers 3 trailer, you may have noticed some new hot Optimus Prime gliding, smashing and robot bashing action. We've got an exclusive look at the brand new Transformers: Dark of the Moon toys from the Hasbro Mechtech line which seem to show off Optimus Prime's awesome new wingspan.

Looks like our boy's got himself a new set of wings!Here's the official synopsis:

Transformers Mechtech Ultimate Optimus Prime Action Figure

With the upcoming Transformers: Dark of the Moon movie, one of the most iconic characters in the Transformers lore will capture the spotlight as his heroic story becomes the focus of the first-ever 3D Transformers movie. Now, an action figure befitting such an icon will be available with the new Transformers Mechtech Ultimate Optimus Prime action figure. The figure includes the Autobot leader's classic trailer that doubles as a weapons arsenal and is an integral part of the figure's converting play pattern. The Mechtech Ultimate Optimus Prime figure features three modes of conversion – vehicle, robot, and robot with "mech suit." The trailer, which serves as a weapons depot and command centre, also converts into a "mech suit" that Optimus Prime shows off when it's time to rumble. Featuring lights, launching projectiles, electronic battle sounds and Optimus Prime phrases, this is the must-have item for kids and fans alike.

The Mechtech line is a new toy subset for the Transformers, but it is inspired by the Transformers films - so this is the version of Optimus Prime toy stores will be rolling out all over in August of 2011. It retails for $US79.99. Here are a few additional shots of the new swiss army knife transformer, click each image to enlarge.


    . . . lame . .

    id much prefer a transforming LolCat

    You got the touch, You got the power!....

    nope, doesn't work.

    You people can curse Bay all you want, but I'll have you know that that "optimus prime trailer transforms into crazy wings" thing was created for toy and cartoons before the new movies.

    The War for Cybertron toys were much better - even though Hasbro didn't have the balls to brand them as such.

    Ugh. Bayformers.
