Optimus Prime Clone

A photo of an exclusive pre-Transformers Diaclone Convoy (designed by famed mecha designer Toshiba Matsushita) seen here in the Wonderfest 2005 colours. Only 300 were released.

I’m kidding, of course. It’s actually a photo of a bootleg Optimus Prime figure.

I got this for 3 bucks and I do believe I overpaid by 3 bucks because it’s worthless. The 20cm-tall figure broke five minutes after I removed it from the package as I attempted to transform it for the first time. The waist joint uses brittle plastic which shattered in pieces with almost no effort expended on my part.

I was a little exasperated by this but angered by the thought some kid from a poor family would receive this shoddy thing as a gift.

Do me a favour, will you? If you should happen upon the people who manufactured this, please punch their genitalia a few times. Thanks.
