Autobots, roll out.

Own the robot childhood-you always wanted from Robosen, where their Transformers Optimus Prime Auto-Converting Robot is now available to pre-order in Canada for $799.00 USD.

Originally unveiled on April 9, this Optimus Prime robot is made in collaboration with Hasbro and constructed with over 5000 individual parts, 60 microchips and 27 servo motors -- the end result is a robot that can transform automatically from a truck into a 19" tall Optimus Prime, iconic leader of the Autobots.

Optimus can also respond to your voice commands and features 80 unique sound effects, including genuine transforming sounds and dialogue from Peter Cullen, the long-time voice actor for Optimus Prime in movies and TV.

When the robot was first announced, pre-orders were not open to Canada, but Robosen is now accepting pre-orders for those in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and Saskatchewan -- a $100.00 USD deposit is required immediately, while the remainder will be billed when Optimus ships.

The Transformers Optimus Prime Auto-Converting Robot is scheduled for release in November 2021 and a limit quantity will be manufactured, so get your collectible Optimus Prime before they're sold out.

      People spend and post limited Lego Technic sets for $500 plus here...just saying.

      This is worth the price and a hot deal for some especially if you look at the comments at FB for Hasbro and for Robosen. Lots of people didn't even know there was a pre-order, and lots that did couldn't order because they didn't let Canadians order previously.

      Yeah hard to say depends on carrier. Some people on RFD have self-declared items from US to save on duties before, that might be worth looking into for a high value item like this.

    • If it really is the best collector toy ever as the woman states....

      Why does it even have to "work" reliably. A real collector would buy it, never open it as that would mean it was BNIB pristine and untouched. So they stick the box in dust proof container stick it in a closet so it does not get harmed by UV rays by sitting in front of a window or anything like that. Brining it out only to brag on it in front of like minded friends who are in to the life... The buyer waits 10 to 15 yrs and decides to cash in, because friends are less impressed now and he sees the market has gone crazy... If you discount inflation he might even triple his money.

      They sell it advertised on Fleabagbay 3.0. As a BNIB pristine never played with item. Terms and condition include the warning "buyers beware if you open the box you have ruined the "collectible value" of the item. Money will NOT be refunded for an opened item..."

      New collector looks at the box thinks this a a sure fire investment TFSA account be damned. She sticks in a dust proof environment, remembers after 10 yrs when relocating and finds it. By now the battery has decayed and leaked through the box/toy destroying it...

      Still the BEST collectible ever though right? LOL

      Canada duty calculator says no duty but around $70 for sales tax (varies by province).

      You still have to pay duty & taxes when self clearing. You only save on brokerage fees, which can be a lot depending on what company they ship with.

      A collector/scalper would probably do that. A diehard fan would get two, one to collect and one to play with... 😎

    • If they can make a simpler version, with no voice command, no app control, no wifi, smaller and with a 1 button click for self transform and lower the price, that will be tempting.

      It's remind me a little of my Sphero R2-D2. After a few weeks, I'll be like: hey, let's boot R2 up and control it a bit. Well, oups! No battery left. Because it's always on so it can connect to nearby phone, the battery last like 1 week on stand-by mode.

      Hopefully this has an on/off switch, else you'll be charging it a lot.

    • It's cute seeing people who don't understand collecting. It's not always about striking a deal or whatever even though its RFD. Having a hobby or collecting stuff is always a sinkhole investment at first but if you are good enough then it will be a worthwhile investment for the future.

      The collector's market will always be strong in terms of toys and collectibles. Every year, more people get added to the hobby and it has been expanding. Millennials that have good paying jobs now are going back in time to afford all the nice things they couldn't have because of nostalgia. Now, new collectors join the hobby as companies continue to pump out statues, toys and etc...

    • I saw this at the live Hasbro pulse event. My inner kid screamed when I saw it transformed. Added to cart for $699 but kept thinking it would be cool for like 5 minutes like my other toys.
      Ended up just getting the Ark at Amazon.

    • You nerds will argue for nine pages over spending an extra 0.3 cents on laundry pods and then go and drop $800 US on a beanie baby.

      I agree 100% normally, but can not see that happening by any folks who live the true RFD life at that price LOL. I actually had written it that way but then remembered where I was posting LOL.

      Now if it was a pricing error, plus bogo, with Rakuten rebate at 7%, free shipping and no duty or tax even at that price. That site would already be shut down from the volume generated by the RFD effect. There would be about 10 obligatory posts basically saying I don't know what this is, I do not NEED one but buy first ask questions later cause price error!!!! LOL.
