God Primus

Probably not the biggest of news... but holy God Primus!!!

I spotted a real life specimen of the ultra rare and limited Transformers Generations lucky draw exclusive God Primus while I was in Japan. There is another lucky draw exclusive, black Tracks, next to God Primus.

I really expected a Primus toy here, not Rodimus.

Haha... fair enough but Primus was, according to Simon Furman, modelled after Rodimus Prime so it isn't strange the the very first toy released with the Primus name is a recoloured Rodimus.

Still, this figure is officially called God of Virtue: God Primus. :grin:

The thing is, its in a bookshop of all places (Books Kinokuniya). I was half inclined to break the glass case, grab it and make a run for it... if only i could stop drooling.... hahaha...

PS: (if you read the post you would notice that my gf took the pics and not me. I was just at the side drooling and quivering like an idiot. Can't even hold the camera steady)

Haha, I can totally relate as I have a small weakness for similar items. ;-)

Yeah, I totally agree.

While I've seen pics of God Primus before, its quite a difference to be physically inches away from the real thing. Sort of like the difference between watching F1 or Tennis on TV or watching it live.
