No thanks,I'm not into buying TF statues.
I never had any of the 1970's/1980's Shoguns warriors,So I don't need/want TF versions of this.
It's worth a serious mention. that the Japanese 1985 G-1 cartoon series. called Our USA optimus Prime by the Japanese name "Shogun Convoy".
I am really hoping they put out galvatron next...
I agree someone 3rd party seriously needs to put out a G-1 styled galvatron toy. that is leader 9.5 inch robot sized. with a laser canon alt mode.
Toyworld TW02 Not-Optimus announced.
Many internet TF fans are guessing this is Not-IDW Optimus Prime.
Personally,IMHO,Creating any 3rd party optimus prime toy based off the G-1 designs is not really needed. as Optimus Prime gets about 6 plus new mold TF toys per year in various size levels & price points. some of these look enough like the G-1 optimus designs. in this past decade Optimus Prime has received enough G-1 styled toys in almost all the sizes/price points to satisfy the masses.
There were some other ones that Igear was working on, I guess they decided to make them Transform now
Igear has so many projects on the back burner it's insane. theirs got to be at least 2 to 3 years worth of TF projects they released photos for on-line that have yet to see the light of day. It seems like all they care about are the MP seekers & everything else gets thrown on the back burner. which is sad because I bought faith leader/smaller scale MP-01 Convoy & I was looking forward to also buying monarch leader/smaller scale MP Megatron.

OMG,this thing looks awesome,If it's deluxe size,i'll buy it.
If it's basic size,it'll have to cost less than $25 for me to consider buying it. anything like $40 thro $60+ will be too high for my taste.
hopefully bbts.com sells this on their site. because I prefer to pay lower shipping fees & get my items shipped faster from state to state. I simply don't like to paying international shipping fees & waiting longer to get stuff delivered from over seas.
I bought a TF Prime Voyager sized Megatron toy yesterday at Target for $19.99.
I went TF toy hunting yesterday & went to about 7 major retail stores in america. out of the 7 retail stores,only one store had Rid voyager megatron. apparently megatron is short packed in the case assortment.
I also bought a TF Prime season one DVD at walmart for $19.99.
I bought a TF Bot Shots barricade for $3.99 at kmart,didn't like it & gave it to a younger relative
I never used the site.
Got this a few minutes ago:
Crave sold to new owner, current site closing its doors
We're writing to let you know that after almost two years of building up Crave to be the marketplace for fans, by fans, we will be closing the site next month. We were working earlier in February on options to keep the site running, but unfortunately none of those came through, so we've sold the business to a new owner.
Our vision for Crave was to create a social marketplace for fans of anything collectible. We heard your frustrations with eBay and we set out to deliver a better experience. As a member of the Crave community, you played a big part in guiding what we built. Thank you for all of your help and for making it the fun and engaging marketplace we were aiming for. We are sad to see it end and will miss you terribly.
Although the marketplace did not grow fast enough to keep the business going, it has been a rewarding experience for us.
What's next? In the next couple weeks, the current site will be shut down. All sales have already stopped and transactions in process have been completed. The new owners have future plans, so stay tuned. You are welcome to post farewell comments on Facebook or Twitter. You can also email us at email@example.com. Our new permanent address will be firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd love to keep in touch.
All our best,
Erin, Kabe, Cole, Matt, Damon, Laura, and Jonathan
DOTM was a very disapointing toy line. I bought a bunch of DOTM toys,transformed them,played with them & then quickly returned them.
Dotm shockwave,had no decent tank mode,the designers couldn't even get the tank turrent in the middle.
DOTM $29.99 HA Roadbuster & $29.99 HA topspin were just awfully enginnered toys in both modes.
I really don't have any optimus prime/convoy toys on my short nor long wish list.
but to answer the thread question.
I'd guess that the 1980's Pepsi sticker trailer optimus prime toy is extremly rare & highly sought after.
Before the re-issue came out,starconvoy was another exspensive & highly desirable toy for fans to buy on the secondary market.
TFC Toys Thinking of Developing a Dinobots-based Combiner?
This G-1 styled/colored Dinobots combiner is something I'd consider buying if the price doesn't reach above $330.
