I wanted to share this picture. This was the first time I got an Optimus Prime. Obviously you can see how excited I am. That continues to this day.

Trivia: Can anyone guess exactly what it is that I got?

I have been into transformers since 1984.
While I love G1 I also love new innovations and takes on the characters.
I prefer official Hasbro releases of stuff for the most part
I'm not a huge fan of Japanese original Transformers media or designs.
It's easier for me to say which are my LEAST favorite toy lines: Beast Machines, Robots in Disguise.
TFCon List: Classics Skywarp, General Optimus, BW Airrazor, Transmetal Tarantulus, Alternity Prime, Fire Convoy

lol. I stand by what I wrote. I think someone will figure out what it is....but in all my years I haven't seen a second one.

It may not be, what you think it be :)

Were your parents sexual deviants and packaged the wrong 'toy' for you?

The item is packaged correctly. It is hard to see though. It is an Optimus Prime, and someone who has brushed up on transformers merchandise might know what it was.

I loved it, and and although my bedroom floor bristled with transformers this was something I cut my teeth on.

So it was Optimus Prime, like you said in your original post. Mystery solved.

He said an Optimus Prime, not the Optimus Prime. The original G1 Prime didn't come in that type of packaging.
Selling my MIB PoTP Optimus Prime, MIB Studio Series Bumblebee, TR Topspin and TR Broadside. PM me if interested.
