The latest drop in Hasbro's lineup inspired by the upcoming film Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is here, and you don't even need to waste your precious strength manually transforming it between robot and gorilla modes. That's because this 12.5-Inch figure of Maximal leader Optimus Primal will automatically convert via voice command. In fact, you can activate more than 100 sound and motion combinations with voice activation or via the push of a button. Examples include commanding Optimus Primal to speak, beat his chest, pound the ground, and roar. Additional features include realistic molded fur details and 2 attachable sword accessories. You can check out a demo of the figure in the video above. 

The Transformers: Rise of The Beasts Command & Convert Animatronic Optimus Primal is in-stock and shipping now priced at $124.99 here on Amazon. If your wallet hasn't exploded after placing that order, you might consider checking out yesterday's Studio Series drop which included Rise of the Beasts Rhinox. Too bad you can't command Optimus Primal to go out and get a job.

"When I met Lorenzo and the team, I was like, where are we picking this thing up from? And he was like 1994. And I was just like, that's a great era," Rise of the Beastsdirector Steven Caple Jr. previously said. "You know what I mean? It has a lot of texture. It's, it's rich in texture is also vibrant culturally. And as he said, it has like classic music and there's a certain energy to the nineties that I'm looking forward to capture. Like we've seen it on screen very few times, sometimes you can play into it too much, but I think there's a level of like realness that I could bring to it."
