|Additional Toy Info |
Hero Mashers Optimus Prime did not change much in design between the earliest images shown in January 2014 and the final retail version - at least as far as the sculpt was concerned. The early images in January 2014 showed that Optimus Prime would come with a jetwing accessory inspired by Revenge of the Fallen Jetfire's wings. For unknown (probably cost-related) reasons, this was swapped for a second gun in the final release.
Said second gun itself seems to homage the weapons wielded by the Micromaster Combiners Sixwing, Sixbuilder and Sixturbo in its overall shape, inclusion of a faux "cockpit" detail on the barrel and what appears to be pegs on the sides near the grip.

All the larger "Upgrade" Hero Mashers figures come with extra parts to allow them to "mash up" right out of the box. In Optimus' case, he includes an additional blue arm which is identified as belonging to Ultra Magnus.
