    im just wondering-is there an Optimus Prime toy no collection should be without? cause im looking at my collection and the only Prime's i have are the 2 from the new movie, War Within Prime, RID Prime (well, half of him :/ ), and a variety of Animated Primes. but still, i dont feel like i have an OPTIMUS PRIME. like a Prime to end all Primes, ya know? so i ask-which is the best Optimus Prime?


    EDIT:: i also have Classics Prime well, sorta-its Ultra Magnus and i dont really want to get the mold twice. the mold is fine, but im not exactly crazy about it

    MP convoy mold I guess. I don't own it myself though.(wish I had the $100 to drop on the Magnus reissue)
    Classics would be a cheaper choice.

    Well, other than a complete RID Prime, I would have to suggest Classics Voyager Optimus Prime. Great figure, and a great update of G1 Prime. Possibility is pretty good, and like most Prime's, he may seem a little small in alt-mode, but his bot-mode is a nicely sized Voyager class figure. Another Prime that is nice, imo, is Titanium 6" RID Optimus Prime. The Titanium line gets a lot of negativity, but at least this one figure is nice enough to own, imo. Hope that helps in some way :thumbs2:

    Big Convoy is my favorite. The main Primes I have in my collection is G1 Prime, Masterpiece Prime, Big Convoy, Rid Prime, Armada deluxe size (bendy) Prime, and Cybertron Prime. I will be getting the Henkei Prime in another month or so. Honestly you can't go wrong with any of them. All are great incarnations of him. I guess I need to know what you think defines "the Prime to end all Primes".

    Could this topic also involve Rodimus, Sentinel, and Vector Prime?
    They're all "Primes" with toys.

    Already did.
    I was just messing around with semantics.

    Although I don't think any of the non-optimus Primes can stand up to the best Optimus toys.

    edit: Allthough that'd change, in my opinion, the minute after we get a Nova Prime toy.

    Nova Prime
    His design was originally a Cybertron Optimus Prime concept made by DON.

    Obviously it wasn't the one they went with.

    "Prime to end all Primes" kind of screams Masterpiece. I don't own it myself but I've always wanted it. I would have it standing here next to my monitor.

    Classics/Henkei Prime would be my biggest suggestion to you. You said you're not the biggest fan of the mold, but that you only own Ultra Magnus. Trust me when I say that it'll be quite different seeing it in Prime's colors. It may be the same mold, but it is certainly not the same toy.

    Also, if you're willing to drop the cash, go for the 25th Anniversary figure. I know, all my suggestions have been for G1, I'm a sucker.

    Before your edit, I'd have to see Classics Prime. As of this week I have every repaint of that mold. Other than that if I were to look at my case I'd say my favorite out of the ones you do not have is Cybertron Prime. With the costco reissue out I think you should be able to pick one up for a good price. If you're going for the embodiment of Prime I think the 25th reissue would be a good choice, or of course MP Prime. I'll drop a line in the Prime social group and see if a few of the guys can drop some suggestions.

    You need a G1 Prime and a MP Prime. You won't need any more after that.
