Ghost of Christmas Presents

     Way back in December of 2011, I made my first tentative foray into the dark, troubled world of the underground third party transformer Market. "this is my Christmas present to me", I said. Or probably it was something like "Give it to us, because we wants it, precious" 

It was the Mastermind Creations Knight Morpher Commander- A Homage to what Optimus Prime could have looked like in the IDW Series Hearts of Steel

     I think I have been getting better with my photographs over time .

     This year, I am back to planet X for their take on Optimus Prime from the Fall of Cybertron game. He is big, and mighty looking- His transformation is complex but fairly intuitive, and not quite to the level where I would rather have a hangnail than transform him. The plastic he is made from has a swirling metallic pearlescence which looks great in the light, and the light piping in his eyes is excellent, He came equipped with an energy axe, an energy sword and a cannon which represents the "Path Blaster" from the game. He is one helluva fun piece to have on the shelves. As an added bonus, he has a matrix chamber that opens in his chest to show a removable matrix of leadership. 


  1. That's a cool Optimus.I have the Fireburst DOTM version but really need to score a more classic looking one.

  2. that does remind me of the axe from the fireburst one! didn't think of that till you mentioned it.
