THE NEW OPTIMUS PRIME WAIFU TOY - Alien Attack OPG-01 Optional Girl M2 / M3

There's a lot of stuff that goes on in Japan in terms of entertainment, which doesn't always make sense here in the United States. But sometimes, they come up with something that makes the fanboys in the West sit up and say: "HolySh#t, what's that? And where can I buy one?"

One of the latest contrived moneymakers from the original land of Anime is the Alien Attack OPG-01 Optional Girl M2, and the M3 variant. I believe the M3 has the Energy-Ax, while the M2 has the energy-Blades... or maybe its the other way around. 



Anyway, this female Optimus Prime Waifu toy, which is conveniently tagged as the Optional Girl, is about 8.5 inches to 9 inches tall, depending on if she's got her armor on or off... and yes, you can undress her, but don't ask me why LOL.

Roughly 2 years ago, back in 2019, I did an article on Nicee, the sexy Arcee variant toy. That post is over HERE. And that  toy looked more like a "sexy female android", in comparison to this M2, which is a "sexy girl wearing armor". 

This trend of sexy toys has been around for a long time, starting with the popular anime & cartoon statues that could be imported to the USA, which date back to the 1960s - 1980s [that's a little before the time of the original Voltron cartoon, which premiered in 1984]. 

But you can go further back than that, all the way to 1906, to find the fist ever "anime clips" produced in Japan, which were in black and white. That's at the start of the 20th Century, and perhaps various sexy hand-made dolls were also being sold as collectible items in Japan, back in those days.

Since I'm more of a toy customizer than a collector, I may not buy this gal, but I know a lot of people will :)

The thing about collecting statues and toys is this - it gets really addictive for the guys / girls, who slowly become Otakus [Japanese word for a person obsessed with toys, games, gadgets, or pop-culture]. And the addiction can happen even without the person fully realizing it. 

It's not bad... hell, if it keeps you from spending money on drugs and alcohol, I say go for it! And if you're interested in this toy, which will be released later this year in 2021, just Google her name!
