Hasbro's Transformers franchise offers avenues for both longtime fans and new fans to experience the franchise, and you can find several versions of your favorite Autobots and Decepticons in a number of different lines. If you've been looking for something different to add to your Optimus Prime collection though, you're in luck, as we've got your exclusive first look at the new Optimus Prime Jumbo Jet Wing Racer. Sporting a bright and colorful design, the new Optimus Prime converts from Jet mode to Jet Wing Race mode and stands at 15 inches tall, but it gets better.

When you transform Optimus into Jumbo Jet Wing Racer mode, Prime's jet wings allow you to launch figures forward at blazing speed. If Prime is in Jet mode, you can use the wings and the main section of the jet to store figures in, and it holds up to 4 total.

Jet mode also features spinning propellers and rolling wheels, and the set comes with a 4.5-inch Bumblebee figure that of course can transform from robot form into vehicle form.
