Robosen Robotics’ Optimus Prime robot can automatically turn into a truck just like the movie/cartoon versions, but its jaw-dropping $900 price tag makes it more of a collector’s toy than a kid’s toy. Now Hasbro and Robosen have launched a companion Trailer and roller set for Optimus Prime with equally cool automatic conversion features and an equally high price of $750.

Based on the G1 design, the trailer measures an impressive 1 meter in length when fully extended. Using Robosen’s smart robotics, it automatically unfolds and tilts vertically to form a nearly flat rectangular shield, complete with an integrated, hinged sentry. In truck mode, it houses the Roller vehicle and human sidekick Spike “who is ready to jump into action or enjoy the ride.” The blaster can also be mounted for “further firepower and support,” according to Robosen.

You can open the rear doors of the Trailer with a voice command, or control the truck and Roller car with an app. It automatically converts to seconds, and you can of course drag it with Optimus Prime, “allowing the sentry weapons to fire at the Decepticons during the chase.”

The trailer and Optimus Prime robot are expensive, but unlike other collectibles, the price seems justified. The company promises “scrupulous” craftsmanship, high-quality metal parts and advanced robotic technology. It uses 18 Robosen proprietary servo motors and 60 microchips, with over 2,000 components in total.


Pre-orders are: open now for the $750 trailer and reel set, though deliveries won’t begin until around November 2022. The pack includes a protective storage case with carrying handle for easy transport, along with a collectible pack with an individualized serial number, Autobot magnetic car badge, metal challenge coin and sticker pack.

Hasbro and Robosen have also released a limited number of flagship Optimus Prime robots that sell for $750, although that deal has already been made seems to be gone† Despite all the cool features, the combined price of $1,500 means it’s likely that many of these items will stay in their collectible protective cases and never turn into anything but cash.
