    It is described as Transformers 1985 Micro Optimus Prime Reissue



    Does anyone know this Optimus? And can tell me about it?

    i dont think it's as small as the WST version. the WST legs are almost flush and there isnt any chrome on the legs.

    It's not the WST. What I read about it is that it's a tiny statue of G1 toy Prime's robot mode and one in his alt-mode in a box to look like the original toy packaging and that it comes in a pink box.

    It was part of a blind boxed line that celebrated Takara's heritage that came out 5 or so years ago. The Prime was a tough pull (mostly Blythe doll stuff, etc), and usually goes for $50+. It is tiny, and does not transform at all.

    It looks ok on display, but the tiny size makes it get lost pretty easily.

    That thing is actually even smaller than the WST Prime. I was all excited to buy it years ago until I found out that it didn't transform. Still a cool little item though.

    yep, he is even smaller than the WST. soooo small that it would be down right impossible to engineer it to transform, which is why you get a robot and a vehicle mode prime

    The series is called Tiny/Little Toy Shop.
    Lineup. It also came with a sachet of bath salt.
