Energon Optimus Prime box identification


sickboy

Recommended Posts

I'd like to pick up an Energon Optimus Prime, but I'm a bit nervous, because I can't tell if the type I see at my local stores are the ones with the old mouth, or the newer ones with the mouth removed.

 

Does anyone know if there is way to tell from the box if it's the older Energon prime, or the newer face plate only prime?

 

Thanks!

Yeah, and still.....you can take it back as defective if it's the one with the mouth. It's technically true, why else would they change it a week after it was released?

80380/80306 I believe is the Asst. Number on the box is what people have said to look for to ensure a mouthplate Prime.  But I'm not sure if this is 100% accurate though.

Hrmm.. well that's definately a start. I'll check it out. Thanks for the tip!

I just traded my Energon Prime with the mouth for a MOSC Evil Lyn, so I'm definitely hoping that when I repurchase him I get one without the mouth. And please, for the love of all that's holy, DO NOT go and open every box in the store and look. Think about the MISB collectors people ! :thumb

now will someone PLEASE tell me what's wrong with the mouth face, rather than the plate face. Is it really that bad? And wouldn't it be a collector's item since they only released so many?

It's just a matter of preference. Optimus doesn't look right with a mouth, which is why I'm glad the Universe Optimus Primal has a face plate.
