    I was weighing this up today and after a lot of head scratching ( it was a slow day okay ) I decided on Henkei Crystal Convoy, followed by Masterpiece Prime.

    It used to be the original G1 Prime but nowadays he just looks, well crotchless?? I cant get past that massive bumper :)

    I'll bet Elita-1 got past his massive bumper. F'narr f'narr, snort etc.

    Anyhoo, a tricky question. Classics Voyager Prime is a great update, MP is a phenomenal cartoon-accurate figure, and THS-02 packs so much awesome into a tiny package. So... er... those three are my favorite Prime. Ph34r mi l337 decisiveness!!!!11!!!

    Don't have to many OP figures at the moment (probably 5 or 6), so right now I'll say Movie 1 Optimus Prime.

    RiD Prime. He's a really fun toy with a great vehicle mode, nice robot mode, passable base, and the single best Optimus Prime super mode ever.

    Nothing can topple a diakron design. Its mecha perfection in action. Thank you Hideaki Yoke.

    The original prime is the best. I see chrome + die cast nostalgia, and all optimus prime figures shall eternally homage it. The complete trailer makes owning one a very big deal.

    If you ask me that is a tough question. But considering playability, posability, affordability among other criteria I'd say that for me it's a three way tie.

    Classics OP, RID OP, God Ginrai

    Told you it was a tough call! :inquisiti

    Looks like I am alone on this one, but I have to say power master prime. He was the only prime I had as a kid. Other than he looks like he wears curlers on the side of his combined mode head, he makes for great memories. After that I would say the g1 original.

    G2 Prime for sentimental reasons. Masterpiece for being the ultimate G1 Prime.

    I did'nt have g1 prime as a kid, powermaster prime was prime for me as well.
    He has a great look and It was one of those figures where every mode was so completely different that you just wanted to change it constantly.

    G1 prime could'nt take the kind of play powermaster could. But as I grew older I found the diakron's easy to appreciate as model car robots.

    your not entirely alone, so:

    1. G1 Optimus Prime
    2. Classics Optimus Prime (voyager)
    3. powermaster prime
    4. Revenge of the fallen optimus prime
    5. RID Optimus Prime

    If I made the decision based on my heart, I would have to go with Powermaster Prime. It was my first Prime ever and as such will always hold a special place in my collection.

    If I ruled out the nostalgia factor and made the decision based on the quality of the toy, I have to say (and I honestly can't believe he's been mentioned yet) that Cybertron Prime is my favorite. He just looks great in both modes and the added combination with other figures just puts him over the top!
