    TRANSFORMERS Pepsi OPTIMUS PRIME

    It is of paramount importance to OPTIMUS PRIME that his mission and the presence of the AUTOBOTS on Earth remain a secret. Part of maintaining that secret is changing his disguise from time to time, though never so drastically that he has to get used to a whole new vehicle mode. This new disguise helps keep him incognito, hiding his presence from the DECEPTICONS and allowing him to plan their defeat without interruption. As an added bonus, this disguise, like some of his past ones, lets him hook up his fellow AUTOBOTS with some free Earth delicacies they rarely get to enjoy
    Pepsi OPTIMUS PRIME is a G1-styled figure with prominent Pepsi deco featured on the cab and open-bed trailer.


    I wonder if this is a Classics Prime Re-paint?

    Emphasis is mine.

    I'll put money down that this is the Pepsi Convoy "reissue" mold.

    Hope it's not too expensive. I wouldn't mind one of these. Although it would be great if it was the new movie voyager with a trailer.

    So does everyone think this toy will be a prize in the Pepsi promotion or something you redeem "points" for.

    I too bet Hasbro is bringing over the Pepsi Convoy issue, albeit w/ minor changes, but can one have to many Prime's in their collection?

    Cool, I always wondered if Pepsi Convoy was going to get a state-side release.

    so is this something you can only win in a contest? No retail version?

    If it's just a re-issue of the Pepsi Convoy then I wont be too worried, as the original is still available. But I'd very interested to see Classics Prime in Pepsi Convoy colors

    Man, I hope there's a way to get this at retail, or at least through the 'redeeming points' method. I'll drink Pepsi by the gallon to get that!
    Well, Diet Pepsi, at least!

    All that's known is that it's a prize in the contest. However, it seems to be a relatively common prize (100 a day), and they're only giving a Suggested Retail Price of about $30, so it's not out of the question that Pepsi could be offering it in other ways.

    If they do, I'm there! But if not.... well, May 14th can't get here soon enough!

    Mine.

    I have Pepsi Convoy, he needs a friend who share's his ideals.


    Nice bio too, very mature and beleivable. (as opposed too PC's bio.)

    I hope it gets a general release instead of just being a prize.
