The beauty about LEGO and its licensed-IP products is that they’ve been real good at getting so many. Media franchises have long made up a solid portion of LEGO sets: films, TV series and more. Over the years their scope for licensed IPs has expanded. Whoever thought doing Nintendo’s “Super Mario” in LEGO could turn out so good. But one thing LEGO hasn’t quite done was do a LEGO product depicting something from their toy-brand competitors. At least, that was the case until this year. There’s no denying it now. LEGO has partnered with rival Hasbro to give us this sweet 18+ set…that also transforms.
Brickset gives us this epic news of confirmation for LEGO Creator Expert’s take on Optimus Prime (10302) from Hasbro’s “Transformers.” We get a kit of 1,508 pieces to assemble into the most iconic Cybertronian Transformer of all. And just like with the original toys from Hasbro (and Japan’s Takara), you can transform our Autobot leader. Fully built, Creator Expert Optimus (10302) can change as-is from robot to truck mode and back. We also get weapons options and accessories like a jetpack, energon cube and the Matrix of Leadership. This is a must-have for LEGO-and-Transformers cross-brand fan. They’ll certainly be waiting for its launch June 1st.
