I'm surprised I haven't seen this done before. It is speculated that Japanese company pay-offs caused the popular belief that Diaclone was the original version of Optimus Prime. Many of the older fans though (not the new bay movies group), know that the real source of the character was a 1983 Go-bots car called Optimo Prima. Hasbro wanted the name and colors of the character for their upcoming Transformers show that aired a year later but could not get the rights so they created Optimus Prime and Go-bots quickly discontinued their Optimo toy. Only a limited number of Optimo Prima were released and even pictures are now rare to find, much like the fabled original Unicron toy. But worse. This is my custom version of Optimo in all of his glory. It is deluxe sized (about the same size as the original g1 84 Optimus Prime figure as pictured) and I gave him 6 new extra points of articulation (also seen in pics). This is a near exact replica of the original figure, made from parts of 4 deluxe and scout sized Classics Universe figures. I put a lot of hours and painstaking detail into this guy! Gotta give love to the original source of the #1 most loved character in America, Optimus Prime! He will be on Ebay next saturday (14th) starting at only $40. Enjoy! Happy April Fools day TFW!
