    Heey guyys.. first post ever here.. this website is real cool, and i was wondering if anyone could help me out on which optimus to get.. regular Blue and Red Cybertron Optimus or Black Galaxy Force? im kinda having difficulty getting the blue and red one since thats the one i want the most, but the black one is the one i can easily get my hands on.. i just want to know if any of you had the choice, which one would you get? :inquisiti

    Welcome aboard! Personally I'd get the one thats easier to get while you still can. (personally I think the black and red one is pretty sharp looking).

    Another point in favor of the black and red is, if you like all your toys to be really unique, you're likely not going to see the black and red combination again. We've come close to seeing it before, but Final Battle Prime in Armada was more deep bluish-grey than black. But black and red is a really odd combination for a Prime, and gives it a nice distinctive look amongst an army of other Primes.

    Yeah, gotta say, the black and red has a nice regal look to it. And like Night Flame said, there's going to be plenty of opportunity to get red & blue Primes from now to eternity.

    Plus, if you get it and really like the mold, you can probably pick up a loose original one for a song on the 'Bay.

    Watch wal-mart, they've had both of them for a while now... I've seen them on clearance for $30 or so.

    I still see the red and blue at Fred Meyers. Anyways, I have both, and while I do think the black and red one is nice looking, it doesn't quite feel like a traditional Prime. So, if your going for what looks the best from a non traditional point of view, the black and red, but if you want to have something that is more like the real Prime, then try to find the red and blue. Either way, I don't see it being too hard or expensive to get both.

    Get the Takara version of Optimus Prime, it's the best one by far (more paint apps).

    Whichever version you go for, you'll like the big guy. He's one of the best Optimus toys to come out in the last few years, rivaled by Classic Voyager and 20th Anniversary for the top spot.

    I still dig the classic blue/red color scheme over the black, but they are essentially identical toys, IMO, and would be almost equally as happy with either version. Plus, I still see both on a regular basis, though, I'm not sure how much longer that will continue.

    I bought the red & black one, put it under the light and he's actually red & dark brown. Not sure if they're all like that though.
    Don't know which one to choose from, I like them equally the same since they're not that diferent. The original red & blue one seems more Prime-ish to me
