Rescue Bots Optimus Prime Fire Station Playset

Closed up this playset looks like Optimus Prime, but open it up and you’ve got a multi-level fire station with lights and sounds.

The customer reviews left on Amazon so far has scored this toy just 3.5 stars out of 5, with the most frequent criticism being about the price and included figures.

The set comes with a small fire engine and human figure.
Amazon has now dropped the price by $10 to address concerns about value for money.
