Greetings Seibertronians! Thanks to the folks over at Bleeding Cool, we've learned that Modern Icons have teamed up with Hasbro again (following their Cobra Commander and Snake Eyes replica helmets from G.I. Joe) to give the fabs another helmet from a beloved franchise. Which one? Which do you think ;)

That's right fellow fans, you can now open a replica helmet based on Optimus Prime (G1 styling)!

Complete with light up eyes and a variety of sound effects, this helmet will allow fans to step into the shoes of one of the best known characters that the 80s ever gave us.

The helmet is exclusive to Gamestop, and this is what they have to say:

Gamestop wrote:Modern Icons and Hasbro are proud to present the Optimus Prime Replica Transformers Helmet. Inspired by the Generation 1 version of Optimus Prime as seen in the Transformers 80's cartoon, this GameStop exclusive, with unique design, is a fully wearable helmet with light-up eyes and authentic sounds and phrases. This legacy-inspired piece will add to any avid fan's Transformers collection.


The price of this helmet will be $129.99 and is set to be released in August 2021.

Would this be a good addition to your collection?

I'm curious as to the actual safety profile of this. I can't see it being used for bike riding or skating due to issues with vision obstruction; may be "useful" for paintball but it's not very camouflaged. If you just want to be epically geeky, this is a certain winner.
It finally happened. The Chicago Cubs won the World Series. Yes, I cried.

I can't imagine anyone would use it as a bike helmet. It's a collectible. For home, Halloween, and cosplay, so the safety standard shouldn't be much more than make it breathable?

Any source for this for those that live across the pond? (europe)

Edit: Gamestop itself prvents shipping via cargo forwarder by checking if the payment account country matches
