Shirts AND an exclusive G1 Prime version! Wowzers...

If only they weren't so freaking expensive? The shirts cost as much as the re-issue Prime!

Has there been a color that Takara hasn't made g1 OP in?

G1 Rolling Thunder, eh?

Orange, Purple, & Gray?

Red=G1, etc., ML repaint
Blue=Diaclone Powered Convoy & reissue
Yellow=Shining UM
Green=This
White=UM, ML
Black=Black Convoy


This sounded better than the pictures look, so not a must-have for me, though if it's reasonably "easy" to get... maybe...

We've already had a Nike Prime, Megatron, and Ultra Magnus. Probably as close as we will ever get.

I expected to hate this.


Yet i don't. Hmmm.
RedAlert Rescue
It reminds me of Dragon Wagon Prime in someways.
f-primusunicron
people get sick of movie bumblebee but not this?
ban me if you want but g1 prime mold is pure and simple garbage
im getting tired of this overrated toy
Foster
People get sick of both. I'm reading a pretty lukewarm response here.

But go nuts with your outrage. It's not as if THIS piece will be shelfwarming the fuck out of pegs at Wal-Mart for the next year.
artiepants
ya know, i kind of dig it solely for the oddity of it.
metrotitan
Wow. Do want.
Bumblethumper
... I don't understand.

Not sure what to think about a green/camo Prime. I'm pretty sure I'll pass unless it's available for $40 or less (which we all know will never happen).
G1Prowl
OMFG a green Prime. My life is complete. Testicle ready to be sold.
atlianz
The cost automatically sky rockets x20 when adding BAPE to the product ..

I dont rock Supreme either...

And I will buy that testicle sir just so I can laugh when you beg for it back after realizing that you just wasted a body part for a toy. LOL!!!

That said, the green prime looks pretty weird, yet I do like it.

But the t-shirt designs just suck! Absolutely nothing entertaining at all about those.
giga-galvatron
I just want one of the shirts in a xxl

FYI...for people not familar with BAPE clothing...word to the wise...it's not cheap. Not your typical $20-25 t-shirts.

Am I the only one thinking Optimus Primal would have been much more appropriate?
Easterling Capt
gimme gimme gimme.. sucker for G1 repaints.
Shark Jumper
For 7,140 yen, I expect these t-shirts to last many years, be bullet proof, and give +30 Dex, Courage, and Strength.
Protoman
I dig it, but then again, I am a filthy whore.
Rijie78
Oh dear. It's been at least a decade since a decent BAPE t-shirt design... and these aren't fixing it.

They've never really topped the navy "Ape Shall Never Kill Ape" tee imo - or the one that had the Cornelius face and "VERY" in a block print, I forget what the actual design was called.

The G1 Prime redeco, by comparison, is interesting.

Looks like a green turd that my daughter just shitted. Easy pass.
casabonita
Me want!! Bape is overpriced but I don't care.

i want it, i don't buy prime variations, i think the only one i have is an original.

but this is awesome! the trailer looks kind of bad but green prime is awesome!
Ratchets Hatch
Why is Optimus green? And what's all this about bathing apes?
FakeEyes22
Trailer covered in the trademark BAPE camo with the hidden ape head logo is cool. I also love the faded green on Prime, it's a nice designer toy look. I'd like a good look at what seem to be original stickers inside of the trailer.

But, BAPE is crazy expensive to the tune of $50-$100 T-Shirts, so it's safe to assume this toy is out of my price range for what it is. I've found Takara and Hasbro's constant high end pricing on an old mold with simple engineering to be a bit much as it is. If this thing goes for $100-$150, I still won't get it but I'd find it reasonable considering the designer label and what is likely a limited run.

The only shirt I kind of like is the one featuring both regular and Bape Prime, even though it seems silly to buy a T-Shirt that will essentially be an overpriced souvenir from that time when you bought that overpriced toy.

Still...I think he looks really awesome.
atlianz
Hmmm.. My brother just told me hed get me a prime and a shirt at the BAPE store in Seoul.
CURAMEN
Damn, I want this.

Question is... Where to get it and how?
Rod
Bought on sight!
joebot.
I'm surprised this doesn't cost more. Hypebeasts will eat up anything.
G1Prowl
Alright, still can't read Japanese, how much for the Prime?
