Metal Earth IconX Optimus Prime Revealed

Metal Earth, who have created some pretty cool and remarkable metal sheet kits including some G1-esque folks like Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Soundwave, has revealed their latest kit: an Optimus Prime based on his The Last Knight voyager class toy. This Optimus, which is made of sheet metal, is a large 3D model kit. The kit when assembled measures 4.09" Wide x 3.7" Diameter x 5" Height. The metal construction makes it a very difficult kit to build, and also a bit sharp, so some care is needed to avoid some self-inflicted injuries.

The kit is not yet available for pre-order yet, but we can guess that this kit will soon be making its way to site sponsors as well as local hobby stores.

I literally finished building the Metal Earth G1-esque Optimus Prime yesterday. I love model building, and it was a fun, if finicky, build. Results looks very good for my first Metal Earth model: mrs Alldarker gave it to me as a gift.

It really did slightly feel like you're handling razor-blades to build these ;) This one doesn't look as cool as the G1 model though.
I'm so meta, even this acronym...

All things considered, this Metal Earth model pulls it off better than the Voyager toy at least...

I found it hilarious that he is just straight up based on the Voyager figure instead of the movie model, and now that I see that it's "mistransformed", it's unbelievably hilarious :lol:
