    Well, not sure what a vintage one goes for. You can get the Power Master Optimus Prime with Apex Armour which was a Hasbro reissue or the Japanese God Ginrai with Sonic Bomber reissue for about $50. Same toy, but it comes with even more stuff, extra armour and such.

    Did they ever do a reissue of just the Power Master without the Apex Armour?

    loose complete ones can go for about 30 bucks, I think. At least that's what they were going for last I checked.

    You can get the "reissue" for about 50, which comes with Apex Bomber. They combine into a bigger bot. In reality, it's a reissue of God Jinrai, which was a slightly different mold

    there are a few differences, like short smokestacks and blue eyes on prime

    but the good differences make up for it

    check bbts for the japanese reissue, they tend to go cheaper than the hasbro reissues

    I'm not entirely sure, but the reissue also has the false windows painted on while the original had stickers (somebody correct me if I'm wrong on this btw).

    There was a reissue of powermaster prime back a few years ago when TRU had the reissue G1 figures you might want to attempt to find. I believe it had everything that the original did, but it also came with an extra armor attachment. I saw that reissue a few times for pretty low prices, so there might still be a few floating around

    Here's a link to the japanese version at BBTS (though I think the american release had the extra armor in chrome (I can't remember exactly though)):

    So is the american reissue the same as the japanese reissue? Or is the american one slightly closer to the original PM Optimus?
