An interesting auction has popped up on eBay. This auction is for two unreleased Optimus Prime Busts. One is a bust of Protoform Optimus Prime and the other is Movie Optimus Prime. Both stand about 8 inches and appear to be unfinished.

I wouldn't really call them toys. I would call them a bust. But the fella selling them might think the word toy may get a few more peeks. Hell, that's how I found it.

I can't belive that the guy wants at least $750 for them, that is a little much, man.

Those are cool. The "Earth" prime looks more like a cybertron prime. the chest looks a lot like the Protoform toys chest. A little over priced. I think that they may be customs and not done by hasbro. Or this person could have been makeing them and hasbro bought the design.

I'm thinking they will get a release, he most likely has the prototypes and wants to sell them big by calling them "Never to be released!"

probably these arent the originals, rather these are re-molds of the originals.... and this guy happened to be the one who knew someone who had the originals and probably made a bunch of resin casts of the originals. thats why he gives you the option of a painted or unpainted, cause he has a few. he's pretty good at painting, as seen from the pic.... maybe he works at a hobby shop or an actual sfx studio.... whatever the case, i have a feeling that these arent legit.... if he had painted and unpainted versions, wouldnt you think they would be in two separate listings? just my 2.

Those look pretty good. Hopefully they become offical or something, I'd like to get ahold of these.

I don't understand why Prime's head would look SO different from his Earth form...

The proto form looks alittle to skiny, but otherwise I realy like those.

I figure it's just to keep in style with the rest of the figures design, the more traditional head wouldn't look right on ProtoPrime.

Also look at it from the movies point of view, parts of the vehicles make up the bots including the heads. IE, BB having a oil cap for a mouth, and parts of Prime's head transforming in his inital TF scene.

I'm figuring it was just a side effect of incorporating new alt modes.

I think this is just some guy trying to cash in.

Look at his feedback...a grand total of NINE!

Something smells fishy and it aint just my armpits.
