I just noticed one of my e. op's has a mouth and not the full plate. Are these very rare?
Rare enough mine does not have it, can we get a picture.
Not very rare. The first release of the E. Optimus Prime had a mouth. The later release (pre Powerlinks packaging) was changed to have the full mouth plate. I had both MIB until a few years ago when I sold off the one with the mouth by mistake (thought I was selling off the one with the full mouth plate).
I've been looking for just the cab (to put with Wing saber) and there isn't much if any difference in price.
Yah IMO it's a wash in terms of value, neither is really more sight after. I sold my masked one recently on eBay and in the main pic he mouth was obscured and no bidder even asked mask or no mask on a 10 day auction.
Yeah, it was a running change that if i recall correctly, happened pretty quickly. Mine is the original w/mouth, which just made for a nice contrast when I later imported a Takara Superlink Grand Convoy which all had no mouth.
