Toy News: LEGO Optimus Prime Confirmed

05/11/22

Back in February it was rumored that Hasbro and LEGO would be collaborating on a Transformers build set.  This would mark an unprecedented partnership, especially after Hasbro's in-house brand KREO was discontinued outside of small releases at discount retailers.  Now thanks to multiple sources we have confirmation that the set is real!  First, the Official Transformers Facebook Page posted the short video below:

 
Shortly after that, The Brothers Brick posted a review of the set (courtesy of LEGO itself)...only to have the review taken down within a half hour.  I was able to save some of the images from that review and have shared them below.  I am a firm believer in giving The Brothers Brick their due in hits, so once the link goes back up I strongly encourage you to visit them to read their wonderful review and see all their cool images.  According to TBB, the set is due June 1, 2022 at a price point of $169.99.
 
 
Almost at the same time TheBrickWiz on Youtube also posted a review, only to have it set to private very quickly afterward.  I also encourage you to check that out too once it is back up.
