In robot form he matches exactly how Optimus Prime from the original show looked. The toy has articulation everywhere from his head, arms, waist, and feet he provides posability that most action figures would be jealous of. There is even a button on the back of his head to make his face plate move up and down. His elbows and knees have hydraulic joints and his feet open his leg vents when standing. Details like these make him above all previous Optimus Primes (minus the first of course).
