    I'd have to say that even though I was a little older when BW first came out, I am becoming a HUGE fan of the BW Optimus Primal Mold. It is absolutely a great toy and I am proud to own several different versions.

    With that said, I'd like to know what YOUR favorite version of this mold is and why.

    Is it:

    Original BW from 1996
    Grey Japanese Convoy
    Black Japanese Convoy
    TRU 2-pack reissue (remold)
    Burning Convoy (Clear Red)
    Clear Convoy
    Universe Repaint
    Any of the Robot Masters
    Lucky Draw Blue Convoy
    Lucky Draw Red Convoy
    Japanese 2007 10th Anniv. Repaint Convoy

    I'd have to say that mine is the Burning and Clear Convoy Versions. What's yours? It doesn't necessarily have to be one you own in your collection.

    Also, what other toys in the BW line should I get? Are there any other must-haves like Optimus Primal? Are there any that are as good or better than Primal?

    Thanks to anyone who posts!! And let me know if there's any versions of BW Primal that I missed in that list.

    I have the universe re-paint 'apache'

    The original is my fav though.

    As for Bw figure to pick up...try the Air attack optimus (technically from RID) but based on the Beast Machines version. One of my all time favs.

    I like the remolded one from the VS set. Took a good toy, and made it even better.

    I like the Reborn show-repaint of the Robotmasters mold. Don't like the big one at all.

    I like the Japanese 2007 Robotmasters Repaint currently, but Optimal Optimus is my all time fav.

    Definately the TRU VS pack, I just wish I would've had it 10 years ago.

    They're all pretty kewl, but my fave is the 2007 show-repaint of the Robotmasters mold, with the larger Anniversary remold and Optimal Optimus/Primal Prime a close second (not the Titanium version though .. blech.)

    I agree on all points, Surfin' Monkey Prime is my favorite.

    A close second is the Robotmasters version.

    Dead last is the Universe version in those funky colors. That was a really nasty way to treat such a fine TF figure.

    That's the same molds as TRU, right? Only of course, Takara's versions, which I heard that the Megatrons from that set do not have the missing piece that makes the waist spin on the TRU 2-pack version.

    I like TRU reissue/remold, Op Ops, and the surfboard monkey is pretty cool, too.

    For the non-TM figure, original or the upcoming TeleBW repaint. However the best Ape Transformer is by far Primal Prime, a repaint of OP OP in G1 Prime colours.


    Also, as a recommendation for other BW toys to get:

    Though technicaly a RID figure, I recommend Sky-byte, a repaint of the BW TM2 Cybershark (whose colours are terrible, but the mold is fantastic, plus Sky-byte's colours make it one of the nicest and most professional looking figures of all time). Sky-byte is deffinately a must-have.

    And if you can, the Predacon three-pack from RID (again, excellent BW molds with improved colours). If you get Sky-byte, these are pretty close to must-have status. Seriously the best of the BWTM2 basics. (which is basicaly why they were chosen I would think)

    Sorry dude, I don't know because I don't recall seeing the US version of that boxset in my country so I can't compare.
