    Here's my situation:

    I'm going to buy G1 Optimus Prime and 2,3 Autobots as Tracks and Sideswipe.
    Considering that after buying these ones I haven't much remaining space in my little collection(I've already all of G1 Decepticons jets,combiners.. ) for many robots,in your opinion,keeping also Powermaster Optimus Prime is a good choice ?

    I think it is very worth it. I love it, but keep in mind that the ONLY articulation is in the shoulders. If you are ok with that, its a fun toy :)

    Yes it is. PM Prime is awesome. Haters gonna hate because he is a brick, but he is the best brick ever (along with Sixshot perhaps). Full of replay value, main character in the G1 comics, one of the few G1 toys that you're always confortable fiddling with. And if you're getting the Apex reissue, even better.

    I am contemplating getting him. For me he is awesome but I was around him as a kid when he first came out too.

    He's ace.
    You can pretend that the little Prime dies, and then gets rebuilt and comes back to kick the shit out of Hordak and the Pound Puppies that killed him. That's what I did. The Pound Puppy bastards spilled out of the womb of a great big slightly stoned weird looking one? Do you remember that, being able to store the little ones inside the mothers makeshift womb?
    Anyway, great fun.
    Playtime at ours was quality. It was like Robocop if Robocop was spilling out of Hunter S. Thompson's ear canal and Hunter S. Thompson was watching it all play out through the reflection of his own eyeball.

    How many replies,I've already decided I'll buy it :D  !
    In robot mode is very imposing and I buy Tf's especially to display ,however PM also as a toy he's tempting ,with him could be different :drool:  .
    And that pic...has even most articulations that I hoped.
    So,I'll buy both G1 and PO Prime,with both of them,and few other Autobots(I already have Grimlock,Sludge and Hoist)my G1 collection is very near to be completed.
    Thanks again,you guys.

    It will probably be cheaper to buy the Re-issue Godginra. as most sites years ago did clearance prices for this toy.

    I have Powermaster Optimus Prime. In my collection I refer to him as Convoy since He looks Like some old-school Japanese Super-sentai Megazord thing or that Robot Santa from the episode of The Simpsons "Homer's Phobia" (The one John Waters uses to save Homer and Bart at the end of the Episode)
    PM Prime is kinda Cool in it own way.

    Go for the reissue. It is superior to the American G1 release in damn near every way imaginable.

    I'd say go for it. He's pretty cheap, even for his original G1 version. If you have the money (or don't mind having official reissues in your collection) I'd go with the Japanese version. The Godbomber armor/accessories really add to the awesomeness of the figure.

    Have you ever seen Grand Convoy aka Energon Optimus Prime? Now that's a Megazord if you ever saw one :lol 

    Back to the topic at hand though, PM Prime is awesome, I'm still looking for a nicely priced God Ginrai :)
