My fiance decided to get me the transformer i had always wanted as a child that being G1 optimus prime, and so went on ebay not too sure what she was looking for and bid and won from the description sounds like a pre transformers diaclone prime. Heres the description 1. Description Optimus Prime Autobot Transformer truck, dated 1980, 1982 (Generation 1, G1) (c) Takara, made in France. Includes red cab and grey trailer. This transformer is from the very first line of transformers, manufactured in the very early 80s! This is a very collectible piece. It is bound to increase in value, with the launch of the recent Transformers movie! The red truck cab transforms into Autobot leader Optimus Prime! The trailer folds out into a mini base of operations with a mini capsule on a mechanical arm (see photo). Has all original stickers (though some have discoloured and are peeling) Tested and transforms perfectly! Is missing the following accessories: black gun, purple roller vehicle to go inside the trailer, the purple fists, the black rockets that can be fired from the mini capsule, the fuel pump accessories. We did our Transformers research at Transformerland.com. Also find any missing parts, and more information on this transformer at Transformerland.com (http://www.transformerland.com, http://www.transformerland.com). Item weight with packaging is approx 900g Full length of truck and trailer is approx. 30cm 2. Condition All rubber tyres are in tact and in excellent condition. The trailer still has its fold out support legs, which help prop up the mobile base. The mini capsule in the base has its radar and mechanical arm still in tact, and it can be lifted up on its own retractable arm. Both the trailer and cab transform perfectly, though they are a little stiff due to not being used for a long time. The original box and tech specs are missing. This was mine when I was a child and it has had plenty of play use. It is nearly 30 years old! Some of the stickers have faded and are peeling. Also, the blue/silver stripe sticker along the right side of the trailer is partially selotaped down, since it was peeling, and the selotape has yellowed slightly. On top of the trailer, and on its door, appears to be the remains of where some stickers once were. The grey plastic of the trailer has also yellowed slightly with age. One of the two holes to hold the trailer door in place has snapped off, and so the trailer door does not fit as securely as it did when new. Part of the silver front bumper on the cab has snapped off. There is some sticker wear, and some minor paint chips on the red cab. At first when she told me i was over the moon until i read the condition of the toy she only paid £26 for and i understand its nearly 30 years old but i told her i'd rather she not waste her money and tell the person Do you think i was right in doing so? she did admit she had no idea what she was looking for and had no idea of all the little extras She said she felt really bad and set about looking for another and was willing to fork out £50 for one in much better conditon i told her i could get a brand new encore for cheaper.
