    I picked up this Optimus Prime in a collection about 1.5 years ago. Paid $300 for this and a TON of other stuff including a sealed G1 Prowl which I got over $200 for alone.

    I left this one alone until I had some time to sit and see exactly what I was dealing with.

    Here's what I have:

    It came with the mailer box with the number 12551 on it.

    It came from 7075 Oakland Mills Rd Columbia, Maryland 21046

    It includes a foam insert with instruction on how to get the toy out of the insert

    It includes a sticker that says: Movie Edtion Transfomer

    Trailer is marked as: Hasbro 1980, 1982 copyright Takara Co Ltd 1980, 1982 Japan

    Can't/couldn't find the marking on Prime though.

    He comes with Roller and all 6 wheels attached to the tree

    4 missles attached to a tree

    Nozzle and gun with hose

    Fists that were attached to a tree but were removed

    Includes two guns but one of them has similar looking plastic to the nozzle/gun so I am pretty sure the other was an extra

    Here's where we get iffy-the smokestacks are cut short much like the 25th Anniversary rerelease.

    He has a rub sign at the top of the cab.

    Face paint-not perfect

    Joints super tight

    Some decals (like the silver) not placed perfectly

    What do you think?

    What are you trying to figure out, if it's real or a KO?

    I think it's half and half. I think I have part of the original Movie version but with a 25th Anniversary Cab. Trying to figure out what identifiers would point me in either direction.

    OK

    So I read through it but other than the sticker-I am still not sure if I have a potential mismash of parts etc from other versions.

    You have a US reissue cab. Probably from the first US reissue, not the 25th anniversary one (shade of red doesn't look like it matches that one).

    Is the launcher for roller in the trailer spring-loaded?

    If you haven't got what you need from what has been posted already or within the timespan of the last 6 months, I'm not sure that you will. Good luck with all of that.
