    Hello, Toyark members.

    Could you give me info on Pepsi Optimus Prime? I've seen him alot in the Botcon 2007 haul thread.

    -Is it botcon exclusive?
    -Is there a chance it will be at botcon 2008?
    -How much did it cost at botcon 2007?

    Thanks,

    Greenshadow0

    There were 3 ways to get him. Botcon, Hasbrotoyshop.com or win him from Pepsi.

    Chances are slim that he will be there at 08

    $25

    Well, I finally got my Pepsi Prime today and it looks like those asshats at Hasbro must have thought it was a chair. Mailing box arrived in perfect condition, Prime's box was crushed, like someone tried sitting on it a couple of times. I'll be returning it for a refund.

    I received mine in the mail yesterday. Came in great condition, just 1 minor, barely noticeable crease on the bottom right hand corner. It could have been worse since it only came with 4 bubble pads and thats it. It was great that the box wasn't damaged during transit or else it could have been worse.

    Ebay:
    Welcome to the wonderful world of the HTS shipping department. Half of the stuff I get from them arrives looking like it was sat on by an Elephant...and then dropped off a cliff for good measure. I did get lucky with my Pepsi Prime, though my three previous orders were all victims of the Elephants.

    Great! So if I'm lucky enough to get Alternators Hot Rod from them, I have to worry about it arriving without any damage. Might as well just hit up ebay.

    The box art is so much better than that of Takara's box. I bet it's Don Figueroa's art. Can anyone here confirm?

    Wow, you're probably right. I found it interesting that he wasn't holding a gun, perhaps a first for boxart of the G1 mold.

    The box they handed me at Botcon was so badly beaten, I asked for another one, and it's still not great.

    I ordered 2 from HTS and both were in decent shape. One of them had a slightly indented front. I guess that's the one to open!
