Self-transforming Optimus Prime toy is a dream come true

“Shut up and take my money!” That’s what every Transformers fan is screaming right now.

In the 80s, fiddling with Transformers toys brought whippersnappers everywhere a heady combination of frustration and joy that few other playthings could match.

But one Chinese robot manufacturer has eliminated the frustration and amplified the joy with a Transformers figure that can actually transition from standing to truck-state all on its own.

Senpower Beijing shared an impossibly cool video of the self-transforming Optimus Prime in action on Weibo, and now we want one more than anything.

Time to get those Robots in Disguise back on your wish list, as the leader of the Autobots has never looked better.
