    Hi everyone, just found an eBay seller is posting a pre-order for the rumored Milk Magazine Exclusive Black Optimus Prime. $199.99 . How many were actually produced? 30? Really??

    Looks like a custom or ko. Never heard of it before.

    If the OP was actually the seller drumming up interest in his auction, that would be brilliant. What!? I'm not paranoid.

    Can anyone shed any light on the validity of this? I've never heard of official hand painted Transformers? Even the super limited ones. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    These have been around on ebay for awhile now..regular color and black, all hand painted..the milk thing is legit, but I've seen these go for like 60$..definitely not that price.

    But there is a Hasbro Logo on the box, shouldn't be personal custom product, right?

    Ebay:
    The release itself is legit, it was frontpaged last summer. There was a "premium" version of the normal Optimus and a black redeco, like the one shown on the eBay listing.

    Milk X Transformers Exclusive Deluxe Optimus Prime Toys - Transformers News - TFW2005

    It looks like the eBay listing copied and pasted some of the verbiage from the news story from this site.

    I made an initial offer for the item & the Seller counter-offered me for USD $55 shipped.

    Still, didn't bite. :drunk

    These were for the anniversary of milk mag in hong kong, each item is hand painted. I got mine for 50 shipped from abc-express. He looks great in person, a friend of mine bought the normal version and it wasent as impressive.

    Eh, I'll pass, only because the mould is half decent and I can get one to paint it for much much cheaper. :lol  Oh, and not really into customed painted 'official' toys. such a weird concept for me.
