|Year of the Fire Monkey Optimus Primal|
Gong Xi Fa Cai! The New Lunar Year has rolled in and we are now under the gracious auspices of the Chinese Zodiac's Fire Monkey. Lucky numbers for the year are 1, 8 & 7. Lucky colors are Gold, Blue and White.
In celebration of the new year, new hope and new beginnings, Hasbro decided to release this redeco of the 2001 Robots in Disguise Air Attack Optimus Primal.
Personally we'd rather that they reissued the 1998 Super Optimal Optimus, but this is still a gigantic leap over the YOTG debacle last year involving the translucent G2 Battle Convoy armed with pink missiles (It couldn't get any gayer). While it's no YOTH MP10 Optimus Prime, it's still a step up over last lunar year.
