Today I’ll be reviewing the Hasbro Pulse exclusive Transformers Holiday Optimus Prime!

Final Thought

Overall, I think Holiday Optimus Prime is a solid figure. Priced at $55.99, I think is high, but, you’re paying for the exclusivity to Hasbro Pulse. I do like the subtle touches of making Prime look like he’s dressed in a Santa suit! The candy cane blaster rifle is a fun effect too! At times the transformation was a little frustrating. I’ll give this figure a grade of B.
