Toy Review: "War for Cybertron: Siege" Prowl

Logical, calculating and brilliant, Prowl is one of Optimus Prime's most trusted advisers. Armed with an acid-pellet blaster, he is also a force to reckon with on the battlefield! Check out my review and gallery of "Siege" Prowl.

Revoltech specializes in highly articulated and detailed action figures. When it comes to Transformers, articulation is always a challenge since the figures need to change form. However, this new Optimus Prime figure by Revoltech has no such problems! This non-transforming action figure looks like it jumped off the screen from an Anime into plastic form. Measuring 5.5 inches (6.10 cm) tall, this figure is highly articulated and includes 7 different hands, a rifle and his signature axe weapon.

Toy News: Official Stock Photos of "Cyberverse" Ark Power Optimus Prime

Earlier this year it was revealed that "Cyberverse" would be switching gears with a new subline known as the "Power of the Spark". Among the figures in this line is a large Optimus Prime figure that comes with The Ark! The Ark is both a ship and armor for Optimus Prime. While the scale makes zero sense, it is a fun play pattern and 30+ years later after its introduction, toys of The Ark are still rare in the Transformers line.
