    what do you think it is, no prototypes and lucky draws don't count

    i think it is those dino cassets (rarest ones i can think of, would say white headmasters but not sure if they are prototypes)

    I would have to say the white shuffler. But then again there's G2 protectcons and stunticons. Or that blue G2 optimus that TFMoon just got.

    They're super rare repaints of TF's mostly made as prizes for magazine contests in Japan. A lot of them are just chrome gold over the entire figure, but some of them are colored. There's a pretty sweet looking Lucky Draw green Armada Unicron.

    It's all in what you consider... like prototypes, Lunch Time Specials, or Lucky Draws and so on.

    Or are you talking about toys that are available to the general public (sold in a brick/mortar store) in a specific market (USA, Japan, or others)? Maybe an online exclusive or a convention exclusive?

    What about variations (either packaging or toy)?

    Seems that a question likes this comes up every month or so. Does it really matter what is rare? I imagine every person feels that different toys are rarer than others.

    To me, it's the toys that pop up from time to time that I never new existed. Stuff that isn't for sale on a regular basis or was produced in a limited or set quantity.

    He must mean the rarest Transformer with a production run.

    I think it was DON that posted them a while back. If I've seen them, they must be real.
