The Kaiyodo Optimus Prime Revoltech Action Figure

For fans of “Generation One” Transformers, the Kaiyodo Optimus Prime Revoltech action figure is likely to have a special nostalgic appeal. Officially dubbed the “Cybertron Commander Convoy Series No. 19” (faithful to the original animated Japanese series), this licensed Takara-Tomy import was produced and manufactured by Kaiyodo as part of the company’s expansive line ultra-poseable Revoltech action figures.

Like the Kaiyodo Megatron and Starscream action figures that we’ve previously featured, this 6” Optimus Prime doesn’t actually transform. It’s a fundamental limitation but not a surprising one for anyone familiar with other offerings in the Revoltech series. It’s clear that Kaiyodo’s objective was to render a diminutive version of the mighty Optimus Prime with a high degree of articulation for its size; and to that end they’ve succeeded. The array of proprietary “Revolver” joints in the neck, torso, and appendages enable a wide variety of poses with a distinctly anime art style. The display options are further expanded by Prime’s accessories, which include a 2” hand cannon, three swappable hands, and a miniature (3/4″) replica of the “Matrix of Leadership”.

Kaiyodo’s core Revoltech team of Katsuhisa Yamaguchi (sculptor), Tetsuya Umeda (paint), and Nobuchika Ohtsu (finish) has once again delivered a tiny yet remarkably authentic “Generation One” Transformers action figure. It’s another must-have for fans of the original series or any collector with a penchant for iconic robot fare.
