So, my introduction to Transformers was through Beast Wars, so I've never had a G1 toy. For Christmas, my sister got me the 25th ann. Optimus Prime. It was my first G1 Optimus, as well as my first G1 toy ever. Now, I've always been a fan of g1. The comics, the show, the movie, I just didn't have the toys, and didn't want to pay a lot of money for what I thought was "meh". Well, let me tell you. Sure, Optimus isn't as complicated as later toys, or as articulate. But man, he's fun. There's a lot of joy of how damn simple he is. I've been fiddling with him all day and love 'im. Long live G1!
