Thanks to a heads up from Seibertronian Scottimus Prime, we have word that the new Jada G1 Optimus Prime truck has made its way to US retail! The toy is based on G1 Prime's classic alt mode and while it does not transform, it is a very nicely molded and painted version of his truck mode. The toy itself falls under the "Metals" banner, meaning it does have die cast parts. The box art is also quite cool in that it uses the Classic G1 styled artwork and backgrounds, much like the current G1 Reissues.

Check out the pictures of the Truck below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

If someone could snag one G1 prime for me, I would be very happy.

Dang, I was hoping it would be a bigger size, more like the $20 size releases. It still is a good looking Optimus though.

Dang. I thought he was the 1:24 scale. Jada has done an amazing job on those. This looks really awesome, but unless I chance on it in stores, I'll probably pass.

Jada's Metals die cast G1 Optimus Prime cab was found in the US a little while ago but we never did get a good look at it. Now, thanks to listings on e-bay, we have a full 360 view of the toy, and even a look at the robot mode underneath him (yes, it does look like Prime frozen in carbonite). We can see how detailed this red and blue White Freightliner WFT-8664T cabover semi-trailer truck is. Also, we have images of this cab compared to the G1 Optimus Prime toy in alt mode to see which details differ. These images were provided by Coldiron who posted them on the TFW2005 boards.

Let us know if you intend on picking him up or not if you see him. This toy has been found at both Target and Walmart in the US for around $7.

Eh, for $7 I guess it makes for an interesting Action Master, but it's not for me.

So the final version shortened the stacks? Probably for the best, those long stacks are loooong. Or are these two different vehicles?

"Prime frozen in carbonite"
:lol:

I do like this model though, and the ability to pull Prime's trailer is a bonus. For 7$, it's fine ;)^

Do you spend a lot of time just staring at semi trucks counting the number of bars they have on the sides?



There you go, three bars on one side, and I didn't even have to look that hard.

Brahs I put a vid up a week ago, includes a detail comparison to G1 Encore Prime. First vid that pops up in YT search for "jada toys g1 optimus prime"

Personally, I thought it compared pretty well and could do the job as fill in display, if it was not for the trailer hitch differences.
