As the current Matrix of Leadership bearer, Optimus Prime is the de facto leader of the Autobots, a faction of a transforming species of synthetic intelligence from the planet Cybertron. The Autobots are constantly waging civil war against a rival faction of transforming robots called Decepticons. This Optimus Prime t-shirt features an original hand drawn illustration along with Japanese kanji as seen on the Takara-made toy packaging in Japanese markets. The art includes subtle vintage effects to give it some 1984 street cred. For a more abused version, look for my Optimus Prime Vintage tee!
