    Just received a g1 prime(almost complete, only missing gas hose). To my surprise, it's the light blue version(trailer, roller), and it doesn't have a rub sign either. How rare is this version of prime comparing to the gray roller one?
    Thanks

    I believe it's more rare than the grey roller version. I see many more grey roller versions on ebay than the light blue. Sadly I have no idea how many light blue roller versions were produced vs the grey roller version.

    I'll post some pictures tonight.
    What I can tell you right now is it comes with the standard accessories, not bloated, and Trailer stamping has a T(no number) with "Takara Japan" only.

    The light blue color is darker than the one shown in Fred's picture, not sky blue, but I think that's probably because different kind of lightning being used.

    It's not mint, but in quite excellent condition, i'm pretty happy with it.

    updated with pictures, with the flash on, it does looks pretty sky blue.(2nd one has the flash off)
    On the 3rd picture you can see the difference between this and regular color.
    Also, it comes with a little chrome pilot which Fred happens to have an explaination in this article:

    Wow.... it is so hard to tell. The flash and using natural light makes a huge difference.

    If I was you I would clean it up, and hang on to it. It looks like it's in pretty good condition. Did you get the original box that came with it?
