    Ok since very few others are talking about the actual toys. POOP! JK I like the asthetics but man articulation and less hollow versions of these would be interesting. Like a Hotrod from that Bumble Bee design

    Sunbow was an American based company and I believe they didnt do any in house animation. Animation for g1 was outsourced to toei(which is a japanese company) and Akom (a Korean company)

    So I was wrong about Sunbow, my bad, but I was right about it being animated by a Japanese company.

    So are these figures new to Canada? We’ve had them in our system at Canadian tire for a little while and we just received a dozen of these last week

    I used to have that OP.

    If he had some panels to fill in the side of the truck mode, he wouldn't be half bad.

    I’ve got Prime in his original deco from a few years back. While it’s not an essential or especially great figure, and suffers greatly from a lack of knees, I do actually really like it. The transformation is quick and fun, it’s a solid toy and most of all that totally wackadoo truck mode just does it for me. It’s a big sucker too. Totally worth the $20. I’m tempted to get one in the new deco.

    I have Prowl and he's a pretty damned good figure for the price. Just be careful about the paint.

    I can second this, although my copy is this second edition. At $35 shipped, I felt like I overpaid a bit but $20 is a much better price. Very worth it if you want a cheap, big Optimus Prime in your collection that doesn't have any gimmicks and is fun to fiddle with while watching a ball game or something.

    Because references in other shows is General TF Discussion fodder at best and is not news. I honestly don't see why it's still in the news section.

    On topic, I actually enjoy the Cyber Battalion stuff. I'm disappointed iissed out on Grimlock, though.
    I had passed on this Optimus a few times, but may bite this time. Really like the overall design.

    I spent a couple of months devoted to finding all of these guys. Got my hands on all of them (including Megatron), except for Starscream.

    I sold most on eBay, other than the big Prime, Sideswipe, Shockwave, and Megatron. I'm now selling all of them, if anyone is interested.
    Prime is like an oversized tinker toy. He's an absolute brick. What stands out is his head mold - pretty dope, but hard to appreciate in pictures.

    These look cool. Would pay 20 on site but that's borderline.
    Not a Prime member, so the shipping kills the deal.

    First month of Prime is usually free, so try that.
