    Hi, I'm Swindle Prime. Kinda new here.

    Anyway, the 17th anniversary of my birth is approaching and I'm planning on using the opportunity to acquire either the original G1 Optimus Prime or G2 Laser Optimus Prime. I want both a lot, but I can't figure out which one I want more...

    Which do you guys think is superior, excepting nostalgic reasons?

    G2 Laser Optimus Prime. He's got more play value and Transforming him won't cause paint to chip off like on the G1 toy...

    G2 laser Optimus, it's stood the test of time and it's still a great figure. Lots of play value with the trailer alone. When I was younger it was the ultimate Optimus for me

    G2 Laser Prime, or the G2 black trailer Prime.

    Laser Prime is just amazing. If you don't like the decals on the trailer, go for the Takara reissue that just has a chrome trailer.

    Black trailer Prime is the G1 mold, with a black trailer and new weapons, as well as a voice box. Plus, it'll likely be cheaper than a G1 Prime. Also, full sized smoke stacks!

    G2 Laser Prime even after all these years his still a ton of fun to mess with as is his many repaints.

    I'd also go with gawddammit's suggestion for the G2 release of the G1 mold. All the fun of G1 with some nice bonuses.
