Optimus Prime is the leader of the Autobots, the heroic faction of Cybertronians from the Transformers series. Said to be one of the greatest warriors of the Cybertronian Civil War, Optimus Prime transforms into a Kentworth cab forward truck.
Born, or rather created as Orion Prax on the planet Cybertron, the robot that would later become Optimus Prime was originally a worker in an energon storage facility, when the factory was attacked by Megatron. In the ensuing battle, Orion Prax is destroyed and his body is taken to Alpha Trion for repairs, but nothing can be done to fix him, so Alpha Trion transfers Orion’s consciousness into a new body and with a new identity: Optimus Prime (though the name “Prime” should not have been given, due to him not actually holding the rank of Prime.
Though war had not yet been officially declared by either the Autobots or the Decepticons, Optimus trained hard and became a proficient marksman, when the war began; Optimus joined the Autobots under Sentinel Prime, where he quickly progressed through the ranks, to combat leader. One of his first assignments as leader of his own team was to assist the Triggerbots in preventing Megatron from capturing and controlling the Underbase, a vast depository of knowledge. It was on this mission that Megatron and the Decepticons overran the Underbase, leaving Optimus no alternative, but to destroy the data core along with Megatron’s ship, allowing his team to escape and marooning the Decepticons on a now worthless starbase.
Megatron found a way off the starbase and began to rebuild the Decepticon army, soon after that he started to take over Cybertronian cities one by one until only the capital was left: Iacon City, it is presumed that it was here that Sentinel Prime was defeated by Megatron, giving Optimus the chance to get the Council of Elders. After taking the Council to safety, Optimus goes back for Sentinel Prime, finding him close to death; Optimus is given the Matrix of Leadership placing him in charge of the Autobot resistance, he was later made the leader of all Autobots due to a failed coup.
Optimus Prime is a creation of Hasbro and Takara

With Megatron’s war seemingly won, it was discovered that the constant battling had depleted Cybertron’s energy supply and a new one had to be found, with this, Optimus commissioned the creation of the Ark, a starship designed to travel to other planets in the hopes of finding a new energy source. What the Autobots hadn’t realised is that Megatron had also commissioned a ship, the Nemesis, which followed the Ark through an asteroid field and began an attack; both ships suddenly start to lose control and descend into Earth’s atmosphere. The Nemesis crashes into the sea, while the Ark, carrying both Autobot and Decepticon forces crashes into a nearby volcano, seeing no alternative, the ship’s super computer, Teletraan I seals the ship under lockdown and enters the crew into suspended animation until it is safe for them to waken.
Two million years after the Ark crashed, transformers from the future (the Maximals and the Predacons) have accidently been sent back in time to prehistoric Earth and due to a build-up of raw energon, must take DNA scans from animals to form a beast mode. During these Beast Wars, the Predacon leader, Megatron [II] stumbles across information which leads him to the Ark and Optimus Prime, who he kills. With the apparent death of Optimus Prime, the leader of the Maximals, Optimus Primal is forced to take their two sparks (life essences) and bond them together, to form Optimal Optimus. At the end of the Beast Wars, the Maximals return Optimus’ spark back to his body, repairing the timeline and securing the future.
In 1984, Four millions years after the initial crash, the volcano surrounding the Ark erupts, causing Teletraan I to bring the transformers out of suspended animation, along with this the ship’s computer also accessed their programming and found disguises for them, so they could go outside and collect energon without being seen or detected. Optimus Prime’s disguise or “vehicle” mode was a Kentworth cab forward truck.
Finding a source of energy on Earth, Megatron attacks an oil rig and convert the oil into energon cubes; Optimus leads an assault force (somehow having the ability to fly) to rescue the oil workers and defeat Megatron, the plan fails and the rig is destroyed, leaving the workers trapped. Optimus saves the workers and makes friends with them, he then takes them back to the Autobot base in order to learn more about Earth.
