OPTIMUS PRIME is a leader in the best sense of the word, taking point on every mission and never sending his team into any situation he wouldn't go himself. Dedicated to the protection of all life and the preservation of freedom for all sentient beings, he serves as a role model for his fellow AUTOBOTS. It is through his keen intelligence,
even hand, steady nerves and endless compassion that the AUTOBOTS continue to frustrate the DECEPTICONS evil plans again and again.
Teamed up with his brother ULTRA MAGNUS for a desperate mission to the most remote areas of Earth, OPTIMUS PRIME will once again use the Spark of Combination granted him on CYBERTRON at the beginning of the POWERLINX Battles.

Profile: Optimus Prime truly is an embodiment of the Autobot cause. He is a just, bold and caring leader who time and time again sacrifices his own desires to protect the rights of sentient beings everywhere. After defeating Megatron and his Predacons on Earth, Optimus Prime and his brother were pulled from their own reality into a new war, one with the evil planet-eating Unicron. Though not his battle - or even his dimension, he fought to defeat evil. Optimus Prime has been summoned again, this time by a Mini-Con named Overrun - to yet another Cybertron not his own. He and Ultra Magnus have decided to join the fight and use their power of combination to put out the fires of evil one more time. Prime knows he is doing the right thing, that the power of the Matrix and Omega Prime are too great to refuse a plea from a righteous spark, but he longs for the day when he can return to Earth, his Earth, and have a little fun with his pal Koji. To him, nothing beats driving through the city as a robot in disguise.
Abilities: Optimus Prime has three primary modes. In fire truck mode, he has the ability to travel at close to 100 MPH for a range of 200 miles. He is equipped with a power-stream cannon which can be used as a high-impact water weapon or for putting out fires at great distances using the power-stream targeting mechanism. In this mode, he also hides a set of 4 heat-seeking missiles that can be triggered, aimed and released in .2 nanoclicks. His second form is his general robot mode where he yields a compression pistol capable of emitting rapid fire Energon bursts. He can also unleash the "Blaze Blaster" from his back-mounted Energon lasers in this form. While in this mode, his trailer can transform into a recharging station - gathering solar energy and converting it into Energon. It can enact his "flying-fist" attack in which his super mode's hand armor is launched at an enemy. He can also combine with part of the trailer to launch the "Strafe Attack" in which concussion missiles are rapidly launched from shoulder mounted casings. In his third mode he combines with his trailer to "optimize", where his extra armor provides unmatched power and defense. Optimus Prime can mount his power-stream cannon on his shoulder in this mode and trigger his missiles as well. Can combine with Ultra Magnus to form Omega Prime.
Weaknesses: Optimus Prime has no known physical weaknesses. His compassion and strong will to protect life is often exploited by his enemies.[ Back To Top ]
