    That's a rather interisting little bio there, It would seem that it has to do with either the end of Cybertron or Classics if they try to fudge the story into the end of Cybertron.

    It's the bio for the Cybertron redeco Optimus Prime. It was found a couple weeks ago with the pics of the Vector Prime repaint.

    the bio sums up the final events of the Galaxy Force/Cybertron show.

    This is most likely the prime repaint that has black replacing the blue, and all four planet symbols on his shoulders.

    Over here in Happy land a $39 wouldn't sound out of place. Our basics are already equivalent to $12.5... I exaggerate but you get the point.

    The repaint Prime looks sweet, I may get him, the Cyb Prime I have now is the Galaxy Force Convoy...

    Doesnt look too bad oddly enough, but something isnt sitting right.


    Heh, for price comparisons, $39 out in former convictville, I think would ALMOST buy you a voyager-class if not actually be right on (i think thats it, the one next up from the deluxe size).

    Leader Class stuff around here usually is close to hitting 3 digit numbers.

    The symbols on the shoulders seem to be a nice touch. But I wish the repaint was a bit more dramatic, at least like in Armada Prime.

    tikgnat, that price is about the same we pay here in Aussieland. Sucks, doesn't it :(

    Its for this reason I dont buy TFs much anymore. Although 25% off at K-mart helps for sure. Unless you are hardcore GF, in which, OUCH...

    I think Cyb. Prime would look really nice in unreleased G2 testshot Hero Prime deco. all dark blue... http://rapido-online.net/g2archive/misc/unreleased/heroes.shtml I'd keep the silver grey the same as Cyb (or maybe go gold like VP) and use Red for accents, Keeps him 'Primey' but brings something new to the table...
