I consider myself pretty proficient in solving a Rubik's Cube, so I honestly can't wait to get this as a fun desk toy.

The puzzle of how to find one of these neat desk toys has been solved! You can head over to HasbroToyShop.com to purchase one for 12.99. From what Hasbro has included in the description we can tell that Optimus' head serves as a 2x2 Rubik's puzzle. The pictures below also demonstrate how the puzzle head attaches to the figure for display.

Big head. Big Challenge. With the Rubik's Crew Puzzlehead, players can solve the puzzle that is shaped like one of their favorite Transformers characters. Twist the pieces and solve the Puzzlehead designed like the face of Optimus Prime. Once completed, place the collectible Puzzlehead on the included display stand body.

Includes Rubik's Crew Optimus Prime 2x2 Puzzlehead with display stand body, and instructions.

• Challenges kids to solve the puzzle
• Designed as Transformers Optimus Prime character
• Collectible Puzzlehead
• Includes display stand body

Not speaking for those who can easily solve a 3X3 rubick's cube, but a 2X2 cube like this is not that easy. I have been struggling all week tryng to figure out my own 2X2 shaped as darth vader. While its essentially the same thing, the fact that this toy is sculpted as a face makes it even more challenging since the idea of a "side" is less easy to distinguish. And all rubick's tutorials are based on flat cube surfaces so youtube wont be much help. Maybe I just suck at this stuff, but I find puzles like this one super challenging and I do want to prepare those who have no experience and think that it looks simple. Its not.

I can't blame you man. I have had a 3x3 for a few years and I still have trouble with it at times. Some people are amazing at solving cubes but I have problems memorizing all the algorithms.

But at least the puzzle being shaped like Optimus' head will prevent anyone from throwing it in frustration. :-P

I am debating getting one. Knowing my aunt she might pick one up for my birthday this summer.

I'm hard to shop for and my family hardly ever buys me actual figures. "I don't know which one to buy you." "All the ones I see are Bumblebee, I can't find your ambulance guy."

Not at a brick and mortar store. If you have a picture we can make a news post though. Thanks!

Our own Bumblebee21 has sighted an Optimus Prime Rubik's Crew Puzzle Head at their local wal-mart in Winter Garden, Florida. They were generous enough to send us a picture which we have posted below. The Optimus Prime Rubik's Puzzle head rings up for roughly $12.98. If you'd like a closer look check out this article to get a better idea of how the puzzle will work.

Didn't know they weren't reportedly in stores yet. Tru has them up at the front for $12.99 each, right in the TLK display. Can't send pictures, enjoying a nice ear of corn and the closest store gets sketchy past 8:30.

Just posting in the sightings section would be enough, even if you cannot get a picture.
