The Transformers : The Last Knight Optimus Prime voice changing helmet is brought to us by Hasbro and requires 3 AA batteries (Not Included), oh and it will cost you $79.99 + Tax.
The packaging for the Optimus Prime voice changing helmet is designed very nicely, it grabs your eye on the shelf and shows the product as well as the features. Unfortunately it does not photograph well in my set-up so I apologize for the pictures not being the best.
The helmet itself is entire plastic and can fit an adult sized head with some adjustments. There are 3 buttons on the side 2 of them that have pre-set phrases and sounds and a 3rd that activates the voice changer.
The voice changer is typical for this type of product, it sounds more like a distorted robot than Optimus Prime and it does not mask your voice very well when you speak. The phrase buttons have quick sayings from the movies but for some reason one of the buttons says a phrase and then plays the cartoon battle riff which I am pretty sure never has been in the live action movie. You can see videos of both of these functions below.
The Transformers : The Last Knight Optimus Prime voice changing helmet is made with an accurate design and that is about all it has going for it. The price point of $79.99 is way to high for a kids toy and the lack of features make it also too high for a collectible. If this piece was off-set with metal parts and light up eyes then it most likely would have sold me completely. Throwing in some movie phrases and a battle riff from the cartoon just doesn't do it. If you enjoy collecting the heads of giant fighting robots then by all means pick up this $80 item, if not then I say skip it.
