Time to dust off your Furbish dictionary because Furby is back and ready to take the world by storm. Feed it, speak to it, tickle it, play music for it and shake, tilt or turn your Furby upside down. But be warned - how you treat your Furby will shape its personality. Are you ready to handle a Furby? Who will your Furby become? It all depends on how you play you’re your Furby.
When you first meet your Furby, it will speak mostly Furbish. But the more you play with Furby, the more English it will speak. It responds to your touch, your music, and even to other Furbys (each sold separately). But remember: your Furby has a mind of its own. You can also download a free app to help you translate Furbish, as well as virtually feed your Furby and other interactive features. App is optional and works with iPad, iPod touch and iPhone with iOS 4.2 or later.

Convert From Truck to Robot
Recommended for ages five and up, Ultimate Optimus Prime is one of the most fully featured action figures you'll find. Initially, Ultimate Optimus Prime appears as a semi-trailer truck in Trailer Mode. With its vivid red and blue finish and distinct racing stripes, Ultimate Optimus Prime's truck form is as detailed and well built as any model truck and would be a perfect addition to a cabinet or dresser top. The truck is able to roll freely on carpet and hard surfaces alike.
Like all Transformers, there is more to Ultimate Optimus Prime's truck form than meets the eye. When it is time for him to come out of disguise and lead his fellow Autobots into battle, he can transform into a massive, powerful robot in Robot Mode. Using Power Mode, the trailer converts into the Omega Combat Armor, allowing Optimus to be placed inside for an impressive 22-inch high stature with extended wings. Equipped with a firing Ultimate Super Cannon and retractable battle mask, Ultimate Optimus Prime is handsomely detailed and articulated, so he's posable.
Advanced Lights and Sounds
Ultimate Optimus Prime can light up and make a variety of sounds. The Ultimax Super Canon features separate buttons to create rocket and plasma firing sounds with coinciding flashing red lights. With a pull of the sliding trigger, the front of the canon opens up for a coordinated burst of lights and sounds, accompanied by the iconic phrase "I am Optimus Prime!"
Challenging Transformation Process
Serious collectors may have some concerns about the figure, particularly his posability. His wrists and waist don't move, limiting his articulation, and some of his joints range from being too stiff to too loose. The Ultimax Super Canon, while impressive in its massive weight and size, makes it difficult to balance Optimus once it's connected to his body and limits his motion. Also, his wings detach frequently, yet are easy to snap back on.
The figure's robot-to-truck conversion is especially difficult to perform, taking up to 30 minutes. Younger children might not be able to transform Optimus Prime on their own. Still, these flaws can be overlooked, given the overall high quality of the toy. For added connectivity, the figure features six Mechtech ports on the highest wings and four on the canon, making it easy to attach separate weapons for enhanced play (sold separately).
The Transformers began as a Hasbro toy line back in 1984, featuring toy vehicles that could transform into robots. The toys soon inspired an entire universe of fictional story lines, pitting the two factions of Transformers--the heroic Autobots and the evil Decepticons--against one another. A live-action movie based on the Transformers was released in 2007 and has continued the toy line's popularity. With toys such as the Ultimate Optimus Prime Figure, kids can bring home the struggle between the Autobots and Decepticons.
