Growing up as a child of the ’80s, I had many cartoon heroes. However, none of them stood taller than the heroic leader of the Autobots and the ultimate badass. That hero was Optimus Prime, a walking, talking voice of reason and I simply couldn’t get enough of him. I had every toy they made of him at that time. Of course, toys ended up getting way better as I grow older and I’ve had my eyes on a few of them for quite some time. This list contains each and one of those, all from the G1 or generation one of Transformers. No, they’re not Go-bots, stop saying that for the love of Alpha Trion.

So enjoy this week’s selection and fear not if you’re a fan of Prime’s eternal nemesis – Megatron (or Galvatron). We got him covered before this month is over. Also, that sweet picture of Prime that’s sitting up top was done by GEARSMITH on deviantART. There’s other Transformers works over there to check out as well.

Also, keep in mind that while most online stores are legit, there are some sellers that might try and dupe you. There are quite a few knock-offs and fakes on the market. So if you buy from a place or person you aren’t sure about, demand pictures and even the official box.

On to the Primes!

Ok, I know I said that only G1 Optimus Prime toys and figurines would make this list. But c’mon, look at this thing. Tell me how I couldn’t possibly put this on here. So I’m adding it and there’s nothing that’s changing my mind. Designed by TRIGGER (KILL LA KILL), this kit features multiple points of articulation. A slick design and includes a really wicked looking axe – just look at that thing. Sure, this one also doesn’t transform, but with looks like this, I can give it a solid pass. 

I’m really digging that anime-look that this figurine possesses. I don’t already own this one, but you better believe that I smashed that buy button.

There you go, more Prime than you can shake an energon cube at. Just do me a favor and keep them out of the hands of the lil’ bits, ok? No grown man or woman should endure the terror of watching your precious toys being destroyed in front of your face. It will reduce you to tears. Trust me, I’ve experienced this with my own eyes, it’s not a pretty sight.
