I was about to point out a video review of the old Takara version. But no one seem to have bothered to make any comparison shots! At least, I know it's 4" tall so it's scout size.

It's about the size of a Scout/Legends toy.
Voyager is to Deluxe, as this Prime is to Legion. ;)^

So, that's a G1 style Cyberverse Optimus Prime box set for 184$CAN (141$US) total with taxes.
Oh joy.

That price is really "French translation for late". #-o

It was a combination of factors, really, and Action Masters was I think a relatively minor one.

It didn't die out over in Europe, Japan, and Australasia.

In all fairness a figma made of die cast with a ton of parts and a (comparatively) huge playset base would cost a lot more than $100.

If it did die in Europe, G2 would have never gotten off the G1 re-release track. ;)

Dang, shorter than I remember! He is pretty decent as a "mini-MP", but the transformation is a bit fiddly due to the his size.

Sure the scale sucks but it's a good figure (emphasis on "figure". Also, when I bought the fig (first released a few years back) he cost a little more or less US$ 50.00 (but it's 2ndary market prices has appreciated waaaaaaaay too high). By the time I realized he was worth it, I lost the opportunity to get a freebie WST Hotrodimus included with the first batch orders.

Also, he was no different from THS-01. Both were weenie minis but chalk full of accessories.

There were even plans by KOers to upsized him but too bad. If he was like Deluxe or Voyager? He would be awesome!
Buy Official Hb/TakaraTitancityformers at retail price or else the 3rd party makers win!

"Shelfwarming"
Btw, its been nearly a year now and TR Soundwave and Blaster aren't moving in the shelve of TRU, is that shelfwarming or what?

Not in the US I'm afraid. YotR Optimus Prime was a Taipei Movie & Toy Convention 2016 exclusive at first, but Walmart Canada got some stock as well.

In short, very very limited release compared to the rest.

Blame the poor sales.
Many YOT__ were odd choices with odd colors. Plus the main problem were the very high prices. Hell, YOTM Optimus Primal is still found aplenty in TrU, shelfwarming hard. Even on "sale".

Walmart Mexico got it in as well. However as far as I know its only available online for $2599 that's around $130 US depending on current exchange rates.

It's pretty much the only Platinum Figure I've seen in Mexico's regular retail even if its online only.

That garbage is a Year of the Something toy?
It's in Canada at Walmart.ca as well

160$CAN plus taxes is an absurd price for this.

Not that I'm aware of. Kinda wanted it.


Not in the US I'm afraid. YotR Optimus Prime was a Taipei Movie & Toy Convention 2016 exclusive at first, but Walmart Canada got some stock as well.

In short, very very limited release compared to the rest.


Walmart Mexico got it in as well. However as far as I know its only available online for $2599 that's around $130 US depending on current exchange rates.

It's pretty much the only Platinum Figure I've seen in Mexico's regular retail even if its online only.


That garbage is a Year of the Something toy?
It's in Canada at Walmart.ca as well

160$CAN plus taxes is an absurd price for this.


It's not horrible, its just very very "wee". And fiddly as all get out. Also the truck mode is less than great.


Its price should not have been over $100 for any reason. As it is, yes its quite expensive for what you get.

No surprise the THS or Hybrid Style line ended after 2 molds and 1 repaint.

Even if back when it was released the first time it was nowhere near this expensive.

MUAHAHAHAHAHA!!!"

All that diecast and over-engineering for such a GARBAGE result. The bot barely look decent and the truck put MP-01 and even Classic deluxe Optimus to shame. If I pay that kind of money, give me a toy that is worth transforming goddammit!

Image

The trailer is marvelous however. I'd like to get one and mod it so it can fit with one of my deluxe Optimus.


Also, how many G1 Optimus do we need? They should have went with Cybertron Hybrid Convoy instead. It's much better looking in all modes and way more interesting.

Image

It's also much bigger.

Image

Maybe I would pay the 160$ for it. Because on Ebay, Hybrid Galaxy Convoy is 250$ plus shipping at the minimum.
