    Voyager Classics Optimus Prime doesn't have smokestacks.

    EDIT: Actually, he does. I was mistaken.

    Yeah, he's not worth that much if he's missing accessories. chrisr291 is offering a great deal.

    Y'know, I wouldn't pay more than $10 for an MISB Classics Voyager Prime. It's a good looking, but very boring mold.

    I probably wouldn't buy it at all. Classics Optimus is horrible compared to the Henkei (yellow, yellow everywhere), and the alt mode looks weird without the smokestacks. That mold is one of the molds I wouldn't buy if it was missing anything because it looks weird without either component.

    It sounds like the comic book shop near me. Any time u ask about a price on a transformer he go to his shelf and grab the toy guide price book. Yea that's great and all but does not give the price for a loose no accessoires g1 drag strip. Most comic book shop are highly over priced

    I agree. I'm also not a fan of the side door kibble on Prime's arms.
