    I have two TF Movie Leader Class Optimus Prime. One is standard version and the other Night Watch version.
    I want to keep the more "valuable" one in the package and have the other one opened for display. So here is my question, which is the more valuable one, Standard or Night Watch?
    Thanks

    I would personally say the version that appeared in the film is more valuable, for that exact reason. So, I'd open up Nightwatch Prime, instead of the regular version.

    Exactly. You have to take into account all the new fanboys that discovered tfs after watching the movie. To them,the most important ones are the ones shown in the movie.

    I'd open them both. Mind you I have two regular leader Primes and the Nightwatch one and I opened all 3.

    Honestly, I don't think any of these movie toys will be considered very valuable. They're toys! Open them both! :)

    I agree. No Prime is worth anything unless you take it out of the box and play with it. You wanna make money? Go to school, get a job, invest... but in something more substantial and worthwhile than TF toys.

    however, if you do only open one.... Open the nightwatch. Leader prime was actually a tough find this past fall.

    All the allspark versions were very easily found.

    Premium version is probably the one most likely to go up in price, depending on how long it ships, not either of those two. But due to current scarcity, open Nightwatch if you only do open one.

    Keep the standard/original version. Personally I did not like the blue stripes on NW Optimus Prime that is why I bought the Takara or the UK version as far as paint apps goes.

    Hope you made the right decision because only you can decide it.

    Goodluck!

    Nerdling.
    I appreciate the comments, but let me remind you that there is no room for insults here.
    I put serious considerations into taking toys out of the package for the fact that toys are bound to get damaged due to long term exposures to air and humidity. Especially I live in S. Florida.
    Every one of my toy was purchased with my hard earned money. They all worth something to me.
    For your information, I do have a job, I possess a graduate degree in multimedia design.

    Dude I wasnt insulting. I was just agreeing with those who said "It's prime, let em' loose!"

    I can see where you're coming from. Humidity and heat can kill your possessions. I rarely leave any of my guitars or TFs out in summer.
