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!
