    They're from the Thrilling 30 Legends Seeker mold. The one that started with the Starscream that came with a Waspinator that turned into a gun.

    There's a song by Kenshi Yonezu called "Kick Back", in the music video he has big fake arms.

    A Netflix Transformers series could work... just don't hire the guy who cuts your lawn to write it.

    Can someone explain to me the story behind G2 Optimus?
    Is he literally just based on a toyline that had 3D animations they played with G1 reruns?
    Is he even canon to G1?

    Why would a G2 figure be canon to G1? It would be the other way around, with G1 being canon to G2. Laser Prime was an upgraded form of Prime from G2.

    G2 has the Marvel Comics (where Jhiaxus and and the Cybertronian Troopers originate), which follow up on the G1 comic continuity—though, Laser Prime never shows up in it. Optimus remains in his G1-style body, since the G2 toyline had the black trailer version of that first toy.

    So, to answer your question, Laser Prime is a toyline-only version of Optimus Prime brought into Legacy, intended to represent his G2 self (at least, a version released under the G2 banner).

    (If I missed any major stories involving Laser Prime in G2, feel free to correct me!)

    Edit: Laser Optimus Prime was released in 1995, whereas the G2 Marvel Comics ended in 1994, which is why he doesn't appear this way in fiction.

    G2 Optimus was just another toyline design. His "lore" is just that he's an upgraded form for Prime. Obviously being Prime, he's the most popular G2 design and toy of his era.

    I know people have a problem with these figures for their shoulders, but I dunno. Despite that, I haven't really found them all too annoying. IMG_1997.jpeg
