Transformers fans can pick up one of the coolest Lego sets around for a great price right now. Lego Optimus Prime is discounted to $144 at Amazon during Black Friday 2023. That’s a 20% discount off of the 1,508-piece set’s $180 list price. If this deal sells out, Amazon also has the model with frustration-free packaging for $152.
What sets this particular Lego set apart from many other licensed kits of this size is that it has a level of interactivity built into it. Though you won’t be pulling off dynamic poses, you will be able to gently adjust the limbs of Optimus, equip him with his trademark ion blaster, and you can even replace his hand with his legendary Energon-Axe.
The real magic here is that Optimus can transform into his signature truck mode, easily shifting from Autobot commander to a big rig that’s ready to roll out. To get to that point is the fun part though, and with 10 bags filled with hundreds of bricks, it’ll take you just over three hours to build everyone’s favorite Cybertronian.
Once you’re done, you’ll have an Optimus Prime replica that has just the right amount of Lego flair to it, with only a few studs visible.
Lego Optimus Prime isn’t the only notable large-scale Lego set you can get a rare discount on. The Lego Super Mario 64 Question Mark Block set is discounted to $180 (down from $200). We’d expect both of these deals to sell out.
