    Hmm... what Optimuses (Optimusi?) do I own...

    Classics Optimus Prime
    RotF Leader Optimus Prime
    MP-10 Optimus Prime
    Reveal the Shield Legends Optimus Prime
    War for Cybertron Deluxe Optimus Prime
    PRID Voyager Optimus Prime
    Thrilling 30 Deluxe Orion Pax (I'm counting it, dammit!)
    Siege Voyager Optimus Prime
    35th anniversary reissue G1 Optimus Prime
    35th Anniversary Bumblebee Studio Series Voyager Optimus Prime
    Earthrise Leader Optimus Prime

    And I suppose I pre-own:

    Legacy Leader Laser Optimus Prime

    Strangely less than I thought.

    I'm guessing at this time it may be that Our Knowledgeable Friend may only be able to answer Captain Pike Post-Accident style.

    Just did a count up of Primes and… it’s a little sobering, given that I’m kind of indifferent to Prime, but since that’s the one everyone chooses to do lots of version of and try out some interesting ideas on, then that’s what gets bought. I guess it ends in a bit of a vicious cycle - I’d much rather more places tried stuff out like Lemon Tree Purple Potato or the Archecore stuff, rather than just plonking an Optimus noggin on everything…
    Anyway. The tally:
    HasTak: Earthrise, Dead Prime, Netflix, SG, Core, LG PMOP, MP-10G, Optimal Primal
    3P: TE-01, Daban/GT OP-EX, TFC Nuclear Blast, MMC Optus Pexus, FH Naval Commander, (NBK Gun Prime?)
    Arriving in the future: MMC Stellarus Prominon, FH Orange PMOP, SG TE-01
    So… 16? Yikes.

    The Megatron Pile is growing alarmingly, too;
    HasTak: Netflix, Netflix Spoiler, G2 Combat Hero, G2, Super Megatron, BW Megatron
    3P: Maketoys Rioter Despotron, MMC Tyrantron, GT Tyrant
    On preorder: FH Meg Tyranno, TFC Dominator, Megatank Monocrat

    It’s not been a deliberate thing to get so many variations, it’s mostly just about if they look like fun toys with clever transformations, and I kind of try not to double up too much with similar moulds (so, yes, I’m probably due a bit of a cull of some at some point…)

    I did the model kit, my first ever one in fact. It was amazing right up until i put the final pieces on and it didn't suddenly become a super durable action figure and stayed a fragile (though supremely posable) collection of parts.
    What's the pre painted one like does it fall apart?

    This leads me to the Prime counting:

    1) Powermaster Optimus Prime
    2) Action Master Prime... well i've got the base not the prime, not sure if it counts
    3) MP10V
    4) Seige
    5) Earthrise
    6) Netflix
    7) Alternate Universe
    8) SS38
    9) KO Nemesis SS38
    10) KO SG SS38
    11) Nemesis MP10V
    12) Optus Pexus
    13) Flame Toys IDW Model kit
    14) Flame Toys SG Model kit (sadly remains unfinished)
    15) RiD Burning Convoy
    16) Striker Noir

    That's actually far more than i expected given that most of my toys are on display on a relatively small number of shelves (so very few in storage) and I don't have a specific Optimus display (though there is a nemesis one). Now the Hot Rod shelf, well, that's where the hoarding begins!

    Pexus is the favourite by the way.
    Seige was the best value (£23 for a toy that good? 'cmon!)
    Striker Noir has the best accessories
    10V is what i recommend to anyone who's new and not sure which Prime to buy

    It feels about as sturdy as it's ever gonna. Certainly doesn't threaten falling apart.

    I have but a single Optimus (Toyworld Orion), and didn't get a Dr Strange email. How will I ever be accepted as one of teh TruFanz™? ;) 

    The one thing you can say about Amazon exclusives, is at least we have bloody Amazon in this country!

    Wreckers wrumours: The G2 Leadfoot from Mirage speculation is presumably fuelled by his appearing that way in the new Wreckers comic; I'd be interested for my IDW1 shelf... I'd have thought Titans Return TwinTwist (and Misfire, for that matter) would be obvious candidates for the Retro Headmasters subline, though I can see how the Salt Man redecoes will appeal to some collectors, hey maybe both will happen... wondering if the Bulkhead remould would be Pyro... appeal of Thunderclash from Motormaster depends on how good the new Motormaster is, and whether they'd just leave out the pricey trailer... would prefer Sandstorm to Springer personally as I'm happy with lanky T30 green lad but don't have lanky T30 orange lad... if we're getting weaponisers I'll cross my fingers for Rack&Ruin.

    ===

    Optimuses? Despite being a confirmed non-fan of the big red dork, I do still have a few.

    • RID2K1 Optimus Prime
    • Armada Supercon "Bendy" Prime
    • KuBianBao MP10V + Trailer
    • AOE Silver Knight Optimus Prime (I only really wanted the Grimlock it came with)
    • Generations G2 Combat Hero Optimus Prime (moonlighting as G1 Overload)
    • Siege Galaxy Upgrade Optimus Prime (it was going cheap at TK Maxx)
    • Earthrise Alternate Universe "Deadimus" Prime (providing the trailer for Overload)
    • PotP Optimus Primal

    As for Megatrons:

    • RID2K1 Megatron (Gigatron)
    • Energon Megatron
    • TLK Voyager Megatron
    • MMC Tyrannotron (MTMTE Megatron)
    • Generations Selects G2 Megatron
    • Kingdom Beast Megatron

    It irks me that I have more Optimuses than Hot Rods / Rodimuseseses.

    +1 to furai model kit falling apart .. it is possible that this improved in subsequent iterations since my kit was gifted to me before any had gone on general sale

    I have paltry primes compared to you lot .. so I’m including the few that I sold

    g1 power master prime (sold)
    Action master prime
    G2 optimus prime (sold) (the one with the sound box)
    G2 octane prime (sold) (the one with the blue discs)
    G2 optimus prime (sold) (the one with the air pump cannon .. that was an optimus prime right ?)
    MP1 optimus prime
    Furai attack prime
    ER prime

    and want me a nemmy if smyths still have them when I’m back

    If primals count then I have the 3 cartoon based from the original BW line

    Looks to be USA only for now, nothing showing on Sky :( 


    As for Primes, my collection is quite specific (1 bot for 1 character in the G1 cartoon and Beastwars) so this limits me somewhat, however I do have:

    • Earthrise Prime
    • G1 original prime (just missing a hose head)
    • Core class Prime from combiner wars / titans return?
    • MPM-12
    • WeiJiang oversized cell shaded MP-10 KO
    • Ghostbusters MP10 re-deco
    and TE-01 OP Leader is on pre-order with Omegalock

    So, I watched Hawkeye. It was ok. I'm enjoying Tony Dalton's presence very much, but the whole thing does feel a little flat. Fingers crossed it perks up. Suppose I'd better chore Get Back now.

    Oh, and Yodel notice tells me Jackpot is due today. Looking forward to seeing how much of a mess his head is.
