    This is a thread dedicated to possibly the greatest transformer of all. This is a chance to post your fondest memory and how he inspired the entire tf generation.

    Looking at my collection I actually only have 3 Optimus Prime toys, the deluxe classics, Armada Bendy Prime, and the DVD MP Prime. However, it should be noted that MP Prime is easily one of the best TFs I have, if not the best. I especially love how unlike my only other MP, Thundercracker, Prime doesn't feel fragile in any way.

    Optimus Prime once saved me from a fire. See, I was about 9 years old, it was July, and my cousins and I were playing out in this abandoned house. Well, one of the sparks from my Sparkabot landed on some dry grass and then *fwoosh* instant inferno.

    We yelled and yelled, and soon I could hear the voice of Optimus Prime telling us to stay calm. Well he then punched down a wall, crushing my little cousin Jasmine, scooped up myself and my other cousin Ryan, and then lept out of burning house. Unfortunately, upon landing Prime dropped my cousin Ryan and he later died from the 30 foot fall and landing on his head.

    But Optimus Prime will always be my hero.




    Yeah yeah, okay. I'll post a picture of my Prime figures in a bit.

    This is a good opportunity to discuss Cybertron Optimus Prime's greatness: First off, he's got the best super mode of any Transformers figure ever. Yeah, it partsforms, and that's what makes it great. Secondly, he has a build quality that I do not think has been surpassed by any official or third party company; yes, even Masterpeice. The ratchets in this figure are astounding, the gimmicks are unobtrusive and, most of all, fun. Sure, the face behind the fold out mask is derpy, but they included a foldable mouthplate and that's just goddamn amazing. This figure can have a lion for an arm for fuck's sake, what other Prime can do that? Oh, and he can combine with Cybertron Wing Saber or 2007 Wingblade to become (arguably) even cooler, Wing's near the top of my figures to re-buy before my peak work season is over this summer. The only complaint I have about this figure is his Hank Hill-esque lack of an ass, but lord does he make up for it with character and three strong modes. I'd love to see somebody try and improve upon this Prime with an MP version, but if they do, they better not skimp on the materials because it won't be better otherwise. I still don't feel the need to replace this Prime with any of the ones that have been released since he was introduced all the way back in 2005. I'm intrigued by the upcoming hyper-accurate G1 Prime Masterpiece, but given how much he'll likely cost I don't know if he'll make his way into my collection. Even then, I don't think he'll ever be replaced as my favorite of the Primes.
