Although my blog primarily focuses on backstage business and magic, one of my most popular posts was about my Optimus Prime Transformers toy collection.
The new Transformers movie is coming out real soon so the new line of toys have been released… so you can guess I have added a few more to my collection.
Today, we staged a special family edition of “Ultimate Magic” which was held in conjunction with the National Family Celebrations 2009. It was a great success with a 85% full house at The Arena in Clarke Quay.
So, heading to Toys R’ Us in search of new toys was a great little break. I generally only collect the Optimus Prime character with a few assorted collectibles in between.
Here are some photos of my ‘toys’ (with new ones) not shown in my previous post.
Pictured above are to reissues of the G1 Optimus Prime, the Masterpiece reissue, the new movie Optimus Prime, a set that includes battle-damaged Optimus Prime, a special Japanese version of an evolved Optimus Prime that a dear friend bought for me and the Ultimate Bumble Bee (the most complex and detailed TF toy ever created). Why don’t they make an Ultimate Optimus Prime?
The four Optimus Primes above are personal favourites as well as among collectors. They are the largest versions of Optimus Primes made and actually the Masterpiece one from the above picture should have been in this set.
Anyway, from left, the new movie leader class Optimus Prime, the 20th Anniversay reissue, the original 20th Anniversary model and the first movie leader class Optimus Prime.
And the collection grows 😀
