Daily Prime - It Came From IDW Cyber Battalion Optimus Prime

Fans have been begging a full-blown IDW style Optimus Prime ever since Hasbro released the Generations legends class Optimus Prime with Roller for the Thrilling 30 series in 2013. He had the look, but the not the scale and for whatever reason, Hasbro and Takara have been kind of taunting us with figures that are close but, not there yet, ultimately leaving the job to Third Party companies.

Daily Prime - The Art of Optimus Prime Playskool Heroes

For me, collecting is as much about art as the property itself. The evolution of a character over time can vary greatly from the most epic to utterly simple. It is this dynamic that I find so engaging. Ironically, as much I love super-detailed figures foisting pounds of metal, extended articulation, lights, sounds and chrome as far as the eye can see.

DC boosts number of fleet vehicles running on B100

In Washington, D.C. Department of Public Works (DPW) increased the number of heavy-duty fleet vehicles capable of running on renewable pure biodiesel (B100) by installing Optimus Technologies’ Vector System onto 17 new refuse trucks. The innovative fuel system allows the DPW to realize its sustainable energy goals immediately, as enabling the trucks to operate on B100 reduces up to 86% of the vehicles’ greenhouse gas emissions. The DPW began an evaluation of the technology in 2018, when the Opti...

Daily Prime - War For Cybertron Falls for Optimus Prime

It is game time and we've rounded up a group of the Transformers War For Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron figures for today's Optimus Prime shot. These were the toys we didn't think we would get. When the High Moon game turned out to be more popular than expected, Hasbro found a place for five of the game characters of the WFC (2010) game in the Generations line and followed up with pretty much everyone from the Fall of Cybertron game.

Daily Prime - Optimus Fine Garbage Pail Kids Hates the 80s

Collecting Optimus Prime isn't all heroics and leadership. There is plenty of room for humor, though we don't get nearly enough of it.

Daily Prime - Generations of Legends Optimus Prime

These little guys are a good example of the complications of collecting Optimus Prime. Between the many colors, characters variants and running changes, there can be more than meets the mold. Today's shot takes a look at a handful of figures based on the Generations Legends Optimus Prime mold. What originally appeared in 2011 under the Reveal the Shield line in 2010.

Daily Prime - Kidrobot Transformers Vs GI Joe Optimus Prime

The Transformers vs. GI comic redux by IDW Publishing's John Barber & Tom Scioli was a real work of art. So it was extra special to have the boutique toys designer, Kidrobot, turn these comic characters into toys for hardcore nerds like me to collect. Not only did we get an Optimus Prime out of the 24 different blind-packed toys, but they also added a glow in the dark chase figure to hunt down! Today's Optimus Prime shot takes a look at both of the Kidrobot figures with a little back up from th...

Daily Prime - Stepping up to Spiritual Leadership Optimus Prime

As promised in the Combiner Wars Thunderclash feature, we'd come back around to the Combiner Wars and the many opportunities there are to build upon the Prime toys in the line. For me, the third party Beelzeboss BLZ-08 Spiritual Leadership Custom Kit really gives the Combiner Wars G1 style Optimus Prime figure a lift.

Daily Prime - Diaclone Car Robots No. 17 Battle Convoy

With it being Mother's day, it only seems fitting to take a shot of the original toy that gave birth, figuratively speaking, to one of the most iconic Transformers of all time, the Generation 1 Optimus Prime. There is a long evolution behind the toys that would become Transformers. Ironically, what was Takara's response to the then-popular Mech (human-powered) robots was the Diaclone Car Robots series in1982.

Daily Prime - TFSS 5.0 Optimus Prime w/ Hi-Q is History in a Shell

In times of decision, the obvious choice should be BOTH! That's what BotCon gave us in 2017 with the Transformers Subscription Figures 5.0 Megatron w/ Spacewarp & Optimus Prime w/ Hi-Q set. We not only got BOTH Leaders Megatron and Optimus. We got DOUBLE Pretenders with inner robots, AND Mini-cons to boot! That's a lot of BOTH, so today we've got a shot of just the Optimus Prime side of things.

Daily Prime - The Pocket Bogies Optimus Slime

You can pick your friends, and you can pick your nose. But you can't pick your friend's nose. Today's Optimus Prime shot is one of the yuckier figures in my collection. Not just, gross yuck, but funny yuck, yuck too. The Optimus Slime figure comes from a toy series that gets around licensing through the legitimate use of parody to copy well-known pop culture icons.

A wave of consolidation is coming for the autonomous-vehicle business as industry insiders say it's getting harder for startups to raise money in the wake of COVID-19

The economic disruptions caused by the spread of the novel coronavirus may speed up consolidation in the autonomous-vehicle industry, Aurora Innovation CEO Chris Urmson said in an interview Business Insider. "There's still capital out there, but it's going to be more selective," he said. In recent months, autonomous-vehicle startups like Zoox, Ike, and Kodiak Robotics have laid off workers, while Starsky Robotics shut down. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.
