    Seeing the new movie stuff has made me (more than) a little nostalgic and I want my Prime toy back.

    That’s him as I remember. His little fists were stored inside the cab and he said stuff like “I am Optimus Prime!” and he had a little blue buggy inside the trailer. I think he was G2, because I would have been too young at the time of G1. (Born in ‘85)

    Can somebody please tell me how much I should pay for him (out of the box because I want to mess with him and have no intention of ripping apart a boxed collectors item) and if I am correct that he was G2? Any more info that could help would be great.

    Thanks to anybody who can help me in my quest.

    He is indeed G2. The G1 didnt come with the voice box.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    Some people on eBay are confused. (or lying)

    Yes. It also has lighter blue legs and the G2 Autobot logo stamped on one of the legs.

    The blue parts come in two shadres for G2. there are G2 primes with light blue parts, and G2 primes with dark blue parts. I had the dark blue version, and my cousin had the light blue version, which I preferred.

    The original had the grey trailer with the blue decals, the G2 version was black with red decals (which had Optimus Prime written on them in huge letters).

    Mine is also the darker shade, which I prefer since it goes nicely with the overall darker feel of the toy, with its black trailer and everything.
