I can imagine for a lot it will be the original G1 Optimus Prime, certainly for me it is. There are lots to choose from though so maybe it's different for some of you? There's Masterpieces, classics, War within statuettes, robot masters, pepsi prime, Generation 2 and laser rod primes, trucks, fire trucks. That's just the tip of the Prime iceburg! Perhaps that's ones you want to give a special mention to?
I only have the one Prime figure. G1 Prime. Unfortunately it was bought cheap on ebay, so it has none of the accessories. No trailer, no weapons, not even his fists, just the base figure. I would like to get my hands on one of the Masterpiece Primes (MP-01 or MP-10, I think).
I think I got my G1 prime on Kapow Toys for £50 or thereabouts with everything. Was pretty pleased as I never had him as a kid and of course always wanted him.
I remember when Armada Prime came out, I waited and waited for the price to drop, and missed my chance. Ended up getting a very late, knock-down price Powerlinx Optimus Prime instead. Do like his gun though and the stacks becoming the mini gun instead. Very bricky and blocky but prefer the regular mode of the combined trailer mode. (Of which my auto transformation of the trailer didn't ever last/work right.)
I wanna give props to the RID Prime though. I know some people didn't like the fact he was a fire tuck instead of truck- truck, but it was a pretty solid figure. The base mode fore the armor when not in the super prime mode was a bit weak but then who cares, the combined super mode is nice and he combines with Magnus to form Omega Prime.
Hoist: Hmm, I'm guessing nothing to do with Beast Wars or Armada, so either a sequel based in or around the first renegade rp trilogy or War For Cybertron? I'm guessing War For Cybertron!
