There has been recent discussion into whatever happened to Platinum Edition Year of the Rooster Optimus Prime. Well, he is simply one of those exclusive toys that no retailer in the US chose to pick up and thus was never made available there. However, he was available on Walmart.ca but at the very high price of $160 CAD. Now, Walmart has put him on clearance at $98 (about $80 USD), which is a 40% clearance.

This is a reissue of THS-02 Hybrid Style G1 Convoy, who was originally available for around $70 USD from importers, back in 2006. He is roughly the size of a Scout sized figure but with the complexity of the first Masterpiece Optimus Prime. This Year of the Rooster edition is the very first Hasbro release of this toy.

This is not the only toy to ow go on clearance on the website. Combiner Wars G2 Superion is also now being liquidated, for $88 CAD.

Do they ship to the USA? I tried getting a postal quote out of curiosity, but it only will allow for CA postal codes.

I tried but I'm not really willing to go further to find out how much they have in stock.

Ask a fellow Seibertronian to middleman one for you. It should be around 20$CAN to ship from Canada to the USA. Meaning around 108$US shipped.

I can't do it however. So just ask around! ;)^

I don't know K, I think I should go ahead and click checkout. Maybe crowd fund it?

I keep hoping these find their way to the states at a reasonable price. Maybe they'll end up at the discount stores like Tj Maxx. :-?

I've heard mixed reviews but I'd like to get my hands on one.

The question you must ask yourself is do you REALLY want it? If yes, now is the time to ask a canuck to middleman one for you. If you wait too long, you may miss it. And if you find it at a ridiculous price at TJ-Max after importing one, well, just buy it one more time! Keep it sealed or middleman it to someone else who did miss out.

I'm kinda torn about it. Should I buy or should I not? Displaying that Optimus in a flying pose with his backpack and a pointing finger would be wicked cool.

NO! THAT TOY IS TRASH!

But it's a unique collectible

THE TRUCK MODE IS GARBAGE!

The bot is posable, it have spare hands, the trailer is amazing, it have a stand

WAY TOO EXPENSIVE

It's 40% off with free shipping

I DON'T NEED IT!

You need it

NO!

Yes.

NOOOOOO!!!!

Yessssss........

Argh............... What............ I don't need it.......

Heh heh heh......

Nah still too high even before middleman shipping. If I miss out I miss out.

Besides Mech Planet is working on an OP in that scale ;)

It's an interesting figure that fits in line with the Brave Masterpiece series.

Year of the Rooster?
That's my year. 1969
Now, if they changed it to Year of the Phoenix, then I would grab it.
Have a phoenix emblem, with flames on the trailer. That would be cool.

There's no phoenix in the Chinese Zodiac.

Like always, Grimlock and Bludgeon are out of stock, during a sale. Why do I even bother...

I'm tempted to order Sky Shadow. Order comes to about 39 bucks after tax. Glad that the offer knocks off shipping or at least it appeared to when I did a cart check. Wish they still had Perceptor tho.

So if I had only waited six-odd months I could have saved 30 bucks? But then I wouldn't have had him to enjoy all those months... Ah well. That's why we're called 'loss leaders' :)

He's sitting in my cart, but maaannnn...

I dont have any of the basebots so he'd be an odd one out, and on the floor but next to Devy and Voltron.

So tempting.

There is also a Used option listed for 86.99 if anyone wants to save 14 more bucks.
