    1. G1 Prime
    2. Henkei Prime
    3. ROTF Buster Prime
    4. Telemocha TM-01 Optimus Primal
    5. Animated Voyager Prime
    6. Masterpiece Prime
    7. Optimal Optimus
    8. Powermaster Prime
    9. Transmetal Optimus Primal

    Yes, I know the Primals aren't Primes, but :p 

    I have only listed figures I own/have owned. Obviously there are MANY more that will make other people's lists but I can only speak from experience.

    If we're talking strictly the G1 Convoy character:
    • Any version of the Masterpiece figure (I won't count iGear's KO).
    • Any version of the G1 figure.
    Other than that, with little exception any Convoy/Optimus Prime figure is a figure worth getting.

    But I'll just go and name my small Prime/Convoy collection since I'm sure it comes close to 10.

    DVD MP Prime
    Classics Optimus
    MegaSCF
    WST
    25th Anni. Reissue
    Mighty Muggs (both the original and SDCC)
    '08 SDCC Diamond Select Mini-bust
    And then RotF Leader and Mighty Muggs Movie Prime thrown in.

    Others I'm hoping to pick up are the MP-01L Convoy to replace DVD Prime, Reissue Convoy to replace the 25th Anni. one, HoC/SCF, Revoltech, and whatever else I like that I can find.

    Yeah, I have a bit of a shrine to the big guy. Let's see... (In no particular order)

    G1 Prime
    G1 New Years Prime reissue
    Buster Prime
    Powermaster Prime
    Supercon Micron Legend/Armada Optimus Prime
    Masterpiece Optimus Prime (preferably MP-01 or 04)
    MC-01 Micron Legend Convoy (nicer than the Armada version)
    Deluxe Animated Optimus Prime, matte version (Japanese exclusive)
    Henkei Prime
    MA-21 Battle Mode Optimus Prime (best version of the '07 movie Prime mold and one of my favorites, period)


    Honorable mention to Super Fire Convoy.

    7. Alternity Convoy
    8. Optimal Optimus
    9. Armada Supercon "Bendy" Prime
    10. G2 Hero Optimus Prime

    After Alternity Convoy, it was pretty much a "whichever bot comes to mind 1st makes the list." I'm not fond of Laser Rod Prime's color scheme so I left it off. I also left off any Primes I don't have that look cool (ROTF leader and Robot Masters LioConvoy.) Scourges/ Black Convoys were left off, but if they're included bump everything down a notch after God Ginrai :p

    I always thought he just had more/better paint apps and metallic silver parts.

    MA-21 was Takara's answer to the premium version that was released here. Only it had more accurate paint apps and chrome parts.

    very true
    you've got to have some sort of g1 incarnation
    after that
    2. masterpeice
    3. cybertron / galaxy force. I have the galaxy force one because I always found it to be cheaper but the cybertron has the better coloring.
    4. RID
    5. Laser Prime
    6. ROTF Leader Prime....Buster if it's your budget
    7. Voyager Animated Optimus....better size & likeness HOWEVER Deluxe Animated Optimus....I think it just has a better transformation
    8. Supercon Armada Prime. I actually enjoy him over the classics one but I know I'm probably in the minority
    9. Classics/ Henkei.....Henkei if you've got the extra coin
    10. Big Convoy

    I love the I-gear but I don't think it's a must have for the casual collector but I do think it's something a true hardcore fan would really love.

    honorable mention to
    Alternity....very cool figure but mine tends to be a little fragile.
    Hybrid Style (any version really) but it can be an expensive figure for the size and the truck mode suffers a little but it is pretty amazing.
    alternators/ BT. I have the BT and prefer the diecast to the plastic and they run about the same price.

    1. Original G1 Prime (The New Year Convoy reissue is my favorite)

    2. Powermaster Prime (Preferably Ginrai or the most recent Amaerican reissue)

    3. Masterpiece Prime (Even better with the cartoon accurate Igear produced head)

    4. G2 Laser Prime (A mold that still looks incredibly nice...especially in the Scourge colors)

    5. Metalforce Optimus Prime (While most see this figure as redundant after the introduction of Masterpiece Prime, I still think it is an important part of Transformers history as it was the first cartoon accurate rendition of the character)

    6. Henkei / Classics Prime (While I haven't been as excited about this Prime as most people, I have to admit that it is THE G1 Prime figure to have if you are into the CHUG line)

    7. Robots in Disguise Prime (What a great super mode!)

    8. Armada Optimus Prime (While I wasn't fond of the super mode, the regular mode was a great design update)

    9. ROTF Leader Prime (The best version of Movie Prime)

    10. Star convoy (It may be a brick, but it is a unique toy)
