Hasbro revealed in a new online event a new version of Optimus Prime, but the difference is that this particular game can transform everything on its own.
And the company has made things even more complicated for the new programmable robot Optimus Prime, which thanks to the power of true robotics technology (in the form of 27 servo motors and a mobile app) can transform everything on its own.
Hasbro says the 19-inch robot has nearly 5,000 components, 27 patented servo motors and 60 microchips connected to power the automated switching feature.
In addition to the mobile app, the new Optimus Prime also features voice commands that allow owners to control the shifting or driving action when it is in the shape of a car.
The robot uses the voice of Peter Cullen, who is best known for playing the voice of Optimus Prime in the original 1980s animated series called Transformers.
However, what makes this game special is that it can switch on its own between truck and mica modes, that is, mobile, human-like robots.
Compared to the latest Optimus Prime game from MasterPieces, which costs about $ 500 and must be converted by hand, the new version of the self-transforming game doesn't cost much.
Optimus Prime is manufactured by Robosen Robotics, and Hasbro is distributing it; it is selling for $ 699.99.
The game is scheduled to arrive sometime in October of this year, with initial orders open for now via the official Hasbro website.
