    despite the price on this being crap, i really like the brighter colors on SS prime and i dont own either of these figures. and probably would never bother with a proper G1 Prime if not for this.

    i might actually bite.

    So, just slap a TT name on it, and the Takara-idolizers suddenly are just fine with a $50 trailer-less G1 Prime?

    yup me too. IMHO, this was supposed to be what Takara's own version of SS38 was supposed to look like had they released this separately in their own Studio Series toy line.

    Just preordered mine. I'm mostly just in it for the SS figure with the retro box. I already have a boxed G1 Optimus (with a trailer), but it never hurts to have a spare I guess.

    It can be a great odd flex,
    “Dude you have two boxed Optimus Primes?!?”

    “Yep.”

    I'll just start introducing myself to people by saying "Hi I'm Nick, and I own two boxed G1 Optimus Primes". It's sure to impress.

    I have 4 G1 Primes in my collection:
    1. the JAF-2000 Con Black G1 Optimus Prime repaint,
    2. the 2001 G1 Book-style Convoy,
    3. the 2011 Encore version and
    4. the 2002 New Year blue eyes G1 Edition Prime.
    ....but who's counting, eh? :p
