    I bought it long time ago. It was shelf-warming in Tesco. It was very cheap. Do you still want to know the price?

    I sold some of my Cybertron figures a few years ago. I want to buy some back & I can tell you, I'm not appreciating the prices. This is going to be difficult & I'm only after 3 figures. Cybertron defense Hot Shot, Thunderblast & Galvatron.

    Final Battle Optimus Prime. The only Armada Autobot mould I still own.

    There's just something special about the core robot. He looks powerful and no-nonsense. And those colours are just gorgeous on it.

    He may be a brick, but the power he radiates and those unique colours, make him one of my favourite Optimus Prime figures ever. Be it MP, Chug or 3rd party, any who releases an update for this mould, I will only buy the Final Battle deco.

    As I said, I had it in the past. sold it and now that I wanted to buy it again, it was 2x the original price.

    And 2x was a good price compared to the average price on ebay.

    Do you think he will get an Encore re-release?

    I do find the deco stunning!

    I see Thunderblast going for around $60. Galvatron around $100 or more. Hot Shot is always missing pieces. I'll get them eventually. I just wish I didn't sell them. If I could go back in time I would never sell any Transformer I ever owned. Worst thing I ever did was selling my Transformers. I don't give a fuck about any of my other toys, but I miss all my Transformers.

    This might be some important advice for people here about the Cybertron Leader Optimus mold and maintaining. Someone else probably has mentioned this but it doesn't hurt to say it again if so.

    On the Leader Optimus mold, at where the the two grey cannons ratchet swivel around, I recommend you take the 2 screws out to check how the ratchet cavity is holding up. Now that it's 15 years old and depending on if it's been moved around a few times, there's a chance the walls holding the ratchet spring in are stressed and begging to break. I've seen it happen to one and the other I checked had stress marks already formed. They're a bit too thin to deal with the force of the ratchet turn. So I recommend people reinforce the outer empty space of the cavity to keep it from giving out. I'm just trying tissue paper for now.

    Edit: Also, when you close it up again don't tighten the screws fully. The tighter it's on, the harder the ratchet will be to move, making the cavity become more stressed.

    This mold is one of the funest carbots I've ever handeled. There's something about his transformation, it can be done really quickly and it's very easy yet each step feels really action packed.
    The robot mode is quite posable with good proportions that look lean and heroic and that gimmick in vehicle mode is great too the way those fins shoot out of it's spoiler for "more speed".

    The toy has practically no possibility, but was a show character, and was a MiniCon combiner - Reason enough to buy all moulds of him.

    These are the perfect illustration of the tail-end syndrom, pretty complicated to get.

    They were fairly common in the shops I went to. Specifically around Edinburgh in the UK.

    IDK I had them when I was 8. As an adult I’d really like to get the yellow repaint of Deep Dive.
