    I have a good question about a Transformers item I owned. It was from back, I am gonna say the better close to 20 years ago. The only evidence of it I can remember is a picture of me when I was a kid wearing it. And, so to my knowledge, it was an G1 Optimus Prime helmet...but all my latest searching have came up nothing. Plus, I tried to find the picture I had of it, and couldn't find it lol! My goal is to find out if that truely was what I had, at least figure out what it might have been if not an Optimus helmet, and if there is still a way to find one lol!

    I love seeing pictures of that thing--what a classic.

    Almost as good as the "flame retarded" G1 Megatron mask from Collegeville Costumes. Talk about unfortunate typo's. There's a pic of it in Alvarez' book and it gives me a chuckle every time.
    :lol

    I think you may be remembered the old Optimus voice changer. Did the run off a 9-volt that fit into the top of the thing? I've got one at home and I can take a picture of it when I get off of work if you like.

    I know what you are talking about...It was a full plastic helmet...it also came with grey plastic wrist bands & a Black pistol. The pistol had an autobot logo on the side & a red cone on the front. when the trigger was pressed a little white light went off, like a flashlight...I wore it ALL the time...But It is destroyed from use, I think it was thrown away...I'll try to find pics

    I think that was it. As I said, my memory of it was fuzzy, and the only thing that made me remember was a picture of me wearing it. But that was a long time ago lol!
