THE TRANSFORMERS G1: Optimus Prime (Starscream Version) from Hot Toys


Whenever I see "Transformers" toys and collectibles, I will near always be reminded of a bygone time in my toy-collecting life, a near decade ago, when us 1/6th-scale collectors would jokingly call our fellow "connoisseurs" - who collect "Transformers" - as collecting "Lorries". Of course this was waaaay before the Michael Bay movies … and now, ironically one of the premium 1/6-brands, has gone and made a "Lorry"!

Witness THE TRANSFORMERS G1: Optimus Prime (Starscream Version) - standing 30cm tall, and ready to be pre-ordered at Hong Kong's Ani-Com, and will include a Starscream head as bonus accessory. Love the mashup concept too!

This is announced alongside Star-Lord, Marty McFly and Diecast Iron Man Mark III. Hong Kong customers to read here for pre-order arrangement details, and YOU can view more images since uploaded on my FB album!

HOT TOYS PRESS: "“One shall stand, one shall fall” - Under license from Hasbro, Inc., Hot Toys is proud to present the Optimus Prime (Starscream Version) Collectible Figure from the classic and highly popular THE TRANSFORMERS GENERATION 1.

The Optimus Prime (Starscream Version) Collectible Figure stands approximately 30cm tall, featuring a highly detailed mechanical structure and remarkable painting applications with distress effect, a pair of Starscream’s wings, weapons, and a rocky ground diorama base with Autobots’ logo.

THE TRANSFORMERS GENERATION 1 fans shouldn’t miss the chance to pre-order this cool collectible figure!"
