Character Profile
A young (by Cybertronian standards) commander of a ragtag and largely inexperienced group of misfit AUTOBOTS. He's a born leader, a natural tactician, a dedicated never-say-die fighter and a master of improvisation in the face of adversity. Unassuming, humble, friendly and cheerful, Prime comes across as 'The Bot Next Door.' He takes his mission and his men with the utmost seriousness, but is still able to relate to them as a regular guy. He's not the kind of leader who needs to bark orders to command respect (besides, he's got RATCHET to do that for him).

Robot Mode Power: OPTIMUS PRIME has the ability to change any part of his robotic body into a tool or gadget. His arsenal includes a jet-powered axe, grappler and fire extinguisher.
Toy Profile
Despite having washed out of the AUTOBOT Academy, OPTIMUS PRIME is a natural leader. Trained to lead the bravest of the brave into battle against overwhelming odds, he eagerly looked forward to his first assignment. It's just too bad the DECEPTICONS were defeated ages ago, and the only crew left to lead are the maintenance squads that keep the Space Bridge network running. Since his assignment, he's lost track of his ambitions. The last thing he expects is the chance to test his leadership abilities in a battle to defend his home and fight for freedom.

Abilities
1) Can cut reinforced steel, 2) Advanced fire-fighting systems, 3) Trained at AUTOBOT Academy.
Weapons
1) Double handed Ion-axe, 2) Giant Waraxe, 3) Shield (converts from windscreen),

"As a team, we can accomplish anything."

OPTIMUS PRIME is the young commander of a ragtag inexperienced group of AUTOBOTS. Heís a born leader, a never-say-die fighter, humble, friendly, and cheerful. OPTIMUS PRIME is not the kind of leader who needs to bark orders to command respect. He is usually the first to join the fight and the last to leave it putting himself before any member of his team.

ROBOT MODE POWER: "Battle Axe"
OPTIMUS PRIME'S main weapon is his battle axe. It is an ENERGON-based weapon that has multiple purposes. The axe blade can modify into a laser blade, it can also grow to cut large objects. The handle can grow in length for a pole-vault style attack, and the back of his axe has a built-in thruster for added lift and boost of great speeds.

OPTIMUS PRIME is a walking multi-utility knife with ability to convert any part of his robotic body to into a tool or gadget. His arms and legs can hyper-extend, he can whip grapples and swing his way around Detroit. OPTIMUS PRIME can also "spike" into any computer or machine to control it. AXE? SMOKESCREEN? HANG GLIDER? FIRE EXTINGUISHER? He has all of these tools and much more; but he isnít just stocked with tools, he is clever about how he uses them.

Tech Spec
Can cut reinforced steel.
Advanced fire-fighting systems.
Trained at AUTOBOT Academy.
