    So, this is a little project I've been working on for a while. Hopefully, my claim to fame around here, unless, of course, someone else has already done it.... Anyway, I've been working on compiling a list if every Optimus Prime ever made in toy form from G1 through the current line. I've attempted to break the list down with headings for toy line, who released it, year, and class. To get started this is only G1 and G2. The rest is nearly finished, and I hope to post it over the weeks to come. What I'm hoping is that people can point out stuff I've missed or make suggestions to improve the list.

    Oh yeah, I count Ginrai, Super Ginrai, etc at Prime since in the US comics, he was Prime.

    Oh, and why Prime you ask? 'Cause that's all I collect anymore, and I wanted a comprehensive list of what was out there so I knew what to look for. That's all. Simple as that.

    So, without further adeu, the list (Part I):

    Might Gaine, what's the difference between #1 and #2/3 on your Kabaya list? I've seen pics of #2/3, but not #1, 4, or 5. Any idea where I might find some pics?

    It'd be a little difficult for me to find pictures of #1, 4, and 5, but I can show you knockoffs of them. They are identical when built except for colors and stickers.

    #1 http://web.archive.org/web/19991018234909/http://www.angelfire.com/ca2/redpear/modelkits.html

    The difference between #1 and #2/3 is that with #1, you have to take him apart to transform him. #2 and #3 have the full transformation instead.

    #4 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=ADME:L:EOISSAA:US:11&item=120100383884

    #5 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=ADME:L:EOISSAA:US:11&item=120036096329

    You might find the originals here:

    I'm not sure, though, since it's been a while since I explored that site.

    Don't forget the Prime Stamp, and there was a case made out of his head for the stamps. If you're into oddities, then there's the Prime electronic G1 Helmet, Prime plates, cups, napkins, centerpiece, and tablecloth, if you're that deep into him. Optimus Head Cookie Jar, there was also both his truck and bot mode on two white small erasers, the sticker book stickers featuring him. There's also a White Pencil with blue eraser with him on it, note book, folder, and memo pad with him,
    Not to mention the WST Primes, Choro Q, and Myclone guys
    There's many more items if you want to check them up then go to the site below:

    I'm tyring to keep it mostly to toys, although some stuff (erasors, pencil holders etc) keep showing up. Bascially, if it has some sort of play value, I generally put it on the list. If it doesn't have much play value, it generally stays off the list. But I make exceptions. The cookie jar should definately be on there. It's too cool to leave off! This is also my personal list of stuff I have, so as I get stuff, it gets added to the list. And WST, MyClone, etc all shows up later in the list since it's not techincally G1, but G1 based.

    So what's the Prime Stamp? Is that the Robot Mode Prime with a little, round felt stamp pad under him?

    There's no difference between the Junior Convoy single and the Junior Convoy in the three pack; don't know if that affects how you're keeping your list or not.

    ^ Galva-Lio Convoy, right? I decided that, for the sake of my sanity and my walet, I would collect just Optimus Prime. So no Primals, no Leo Convoy, no Big Convoy, etc. and this list reflects that. Not saying I don't own a couple of those anyway, but this list is strictly Optimus Prime. That said, if anyone can put me in touch with this guy, I'd be interested in talking to him!

    Just checked out ^! Wow! He and Elvin are both pretty dedicated. I must admit, all of mine come out of the boxes for display, so no AFA for me. But still both are (Elvin and Ultra Prime) have awsome collections!

    The stamp was a solid Prime Bot mode, and on the bottom of it, it had the truck mode, and had a cap with an ink pad in it.
