Translucent Blue Optimus Prime

I'm not certain why it took so long to get a Cartoon Version of Optimus up on the site. I've had the means for quite some time, and there have been several other uses of the design. I guess the Action Master version that was released with the "New Year" G1 Convoy in 2002 was so show-accurate that I figured there was no pressing need.

If nothing else, Prime now has his show-accurate weapon to go along with his show-accurate color scheme — which was achieved with the colors below:
  • Mordian Blue (Games Workshop)
  • Blood Red (Games Workshop)
  • Golden Yellow (Games Workshop)
  • Ice Blue (Games Workshop)
  • Chrome Silver (Tamiya)

The "exclusive" for Cybercon 2005 is a translucent blue Optimus Prime. My original idea was to do a Lava Galvatron, but once I found out Peter Cullen would be attending the show I switched gears. I was lucky enough to be able to grab a picture with the man himself:

Prowl Pants and Peter Cullen

Only 10 of these were made, and were only available for sale at Cybercon in New York City on July 29 and 30, 2005. Even though it wasn't an official exclusive, it was pretty well received by the Cybercon staff.

Optimus comes packaged up in a fantastic box made by Chip Wallace, numbered as Exclusive 01.
