Smile Another Prime question... (yeah I know, shut up)

1. So the difference between Optimus Prime Reissue and "New Year's OP" are the blue truck windows, right?
Well who sells the OP Reissue? I only saw the New Year Prime at Bigbadtoystore for $68.99.
I guess the standard reissue is cheaper than the New year one.

2. There is this "Black Convoy" Guy around... not the black Powermaster Prime and not the rare black Fire Convoy (Car Robots), but another one.
Can you tell me, which mold it is? I think it is called something with Super-Laser-Prime. I think it is a Generation 2.
This Prime I mean has a laser sword (I think) and missle racks on shoulders.
You know what I mean? THe Guy is black and looks pretty cool.

So, If you know what I mean, is this Laser Prime any good?
Quality, Material, transformation, color.
How much would you pay for him?

I don't know the first question, but the second refers to the Car Robots version of Laser Optimus Prime, called Scourge in RID and due for release in the RID line soon.

The Japanese version had the electronics removed, but they may be back in him for the RID version.

Thumbs up

Addl, read other posts before asking anything.....

I just read Scourge will go for about $30, so this Laser Prime for $50 can stay where it is!

A1.?But from what I gather the clue windows Op is from the rare 'good bye' convoy japanese gift set (There was a goodbye Megatron one as well) I dont know about the details of the new american Optimus reissue though.


A2.The 'Black Convoy' or Scourge in RiD is a repaint of 1994's laser Optimus Prime.I never had him but by just about everyone who ever got him rate him as by far the best version of Optimus Prime ever made.
His trailer is now an oil tanker and hes detailed and quite articulate.The transformation is good and email Deathshead who I believe does have a laser Optimus Pruime if you want more details.

As for price I believe the laser Optimus black repaint is being relised as RiD Scourge in america just before Christmas which would be no more than $35 I imagine (Probally less).

EDIT:It comming out from $23.99

Re-Issue primes can easily reach $120 on ebay (prime was re-issued in 2000 so you won't find him at bbts).

And NY-OP comes with special mouse-pad, action master and perhaps the matrix.

Question

Well is Laser Prime worth more than the black RiD Scourge?
I know that RiD Scourge looks way cooler than Prime.

How much is a Laser Prime on Ebay nowadays? Your $120 seem a bit much, but is that a normal price for him or was he MISB?

I'm assuming that it is a bit more expensive for prime because he's older. I've seen laser prime sell for more. His box wasn't sealed, but he still had the twisties on him, but I took him out so that I could play with him.
