    Where can I pick up this blue Prime? He look's cool in blue!
    Look's like a predecessor to Ultra Magnus maybe? YouTube - Diaclone: "Powered Convoy"
    Was their a blue Prime trailer as well? I don't like the Magnus trailer look, but I do like the blue cab.

    I don't know alot about Diaclone, but isn't the Prime & Magnus cab the same robot in that series and it just had different armor/trailers? Not really like 2 different characters as they are in Transformers?

    Essentially yes. Only the trailers are different. Ultra Magnus's cab is just a repainted Prime.
    I've seen several other versions of Optimus Prime's cab. Black, clear black, and clear. But, I've never seen a blue one till I saw the Diaclone commercial a few minutes ago. Pretty bored today so just watching a bunch of Transformer stuff on Youtube. I get a kick out of the old Diaclone adds with their animation using real figures and special effects.

    There's that tfwiki again! LOL! Cool, I didn't know he was available in yellow either!
    So, how many colors of Prime are there? Geepers!

    With patience and luck you'll eventually find the blue Powered Convoy cab on eBay for maybe $30-$50. You can't be too picky about condition though.

    I suppose one could take Magnus and repaint him. Though my painting skills are severely limited.

    I'm surprised that there was never a blue Classics Prime released when FP released the DIA kit. Although, that would mean Hasbro are working with FP, rather than trying to shunt them.

    Diaclone adverts are amazing!
