    Those are just my "for sale" ones.
    I'm keeping my MISB purple, MIB gray and loose blue. Can't justify keeping more than that

    Aren't the "purple" ones from G2?

    Anyway, I want a blue Roller. My Encore Prime came with a silver one.

    That's an impressive collection. I don't have that many Primes in total, let alone that many versions of the coolest Prime ever.

    From what I can tell, I have a feeling you can.
    Other than my 30 G1, I only have 4 G2 (My MISB tape broke :(  ) MISB Machine Wars and at least one loose one from every other series. MIsB 07 Movie & MIB Titanium 6". Oh, I have an MISB Primal but it's Universe, I don't want it.

    That's why I'm hesitant to mail it to AFA. I understand AFA will be at comic con. Is it worthwhile to bring like 20-30 items to them that way?

    Mine is actually Gig Trasformer Commander with Series 3 graphic on back. Do they do those?
    Thanx!

    Just sayin'...that kind of image breeds scorn and hate, lol.

    i used to wonder as a kid why i could never find a good toy on my shelf and lo! behold, the last 5 months of the factory's production is in the picture.

    impressive, but saddening to me. i will feel joy because in my house (and budget) There can be only ONE!

    Hello,
    Actually, by "purple" I mean the Navy blue version that 95% of G1 Primes come with. However, if you look at the last 3 open trailers, there were some with Royal blue innards and roller.
    G2 Prime also has Royal blue but not the same hue and since you can't remove those two peices off the insides of the trailer without puncturing or removing the sticker from the outside it's difficult to fake. Unfortunately, there are repros of that trailer sticker so now it is possible. However, once you have a genuine Royal blue & a G2 you can compare the difference.
    Mine were acquired by people selling Prime without mentioning the color inside the trailer so I don't think a seller would go to the extent of swapping innards from a G2, applying a repro label and then not even mention it as "blue" to maximize sales.

    The blue version is considered rarest. Maybe 1 of 100? Gray is second @ maybe 1 of 25.
    I target gray & blue because they haven't been KO'd and they're rare. They also come with genuine pre-rub cabs, not just removed rub sign.

    Hope this helps!
