Yeah- that’s never going to happen anywhere but Japan
We already saw the packagaing/ contents
Where is that trailer?
It is a neat idea...but at $50, he will go the Hot Rod clearance route...unless they only produce him in small numbers.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! My opportunity has come at last! I\'ve wanted to know how I could get my hands on a G1 Optimus for so long, and now its finally come!
Pssshhh - going to wait for the oversized KO.
This thread in a nutshell:
Well, I guess if somebody doesn't want him because of his lack of trailer, I fill in their spot in the distribution lotto. I don't really care for G1 but a piece of history like this is worth considering. Especially if it hits saturation the way Rodimus did.
Sure is .. hope price goes below
It’s there. You just can’t see it because it’s in subspace.
A little context. TRU’s 25th Anniversary reissue in 2008 retailed for $70.
Optimus Prime (25th Anniversary Re-Issue) - Transformers Toys - TFW2005
You got the full Optimus toy, plus 3 metric buttloads of extras (that’s a highly scientific unit of measurement). Adjusted for inflation, that’s about $82 in today’s money. This new cab-only version would have cost $42 in 2008’s dollars when you adjust backward.
US Inflation Calculator
So 40 extra bucks got you a trailer, all the associated accessories, a DVD of the original MTMTE episodes, a comic, and electronics. This new one doesn’t seem like terribly good value.
But, hey, longer smokestacks!
No trailer is BS.
Hasbro, you just ruined it. I sure hope a “complete version” comes along. It is Prime, damn it.
This would have been cooler as a VS set with either Megatron or Soundwave.
Fifty dollars is a bit high for only the cab, but this will sell well. Optimus Prime in any form usually does. I can see them releasing the white version and call it Ultra Magnus.
I have that.
I’ve got it. They do what they did with reissue hot rod and put it backwards
Transform it to robot mode and it will be cartoon accurate; the trailer is disappeared!!
I will be getting this.
No trailer?! No fun! What\'s next, a re-release of Ultra Magnus as a white cab with no trailer? Omega Supreme as a rocket without a tank?
Funny thing. The other day I seen a custom figure of prime without the trailer. Only it was on card back. Lol. This is a great opportunity for those who don\'t have the g1 prime mold. That said $50 is kinda high considering he is missing his accessories
