My Optimus Prime Shrine

Tuesday, January 20, 2009

One thing few people know about me is that I'm a Transformers fan.  But to be more specific, I'm what you call a G1 fan (Generation 1) or in layman's terms, the very first issues of the Transformers when it was commercially released in the US around 1984.  It's that specific, because Japan released the Transformers (as diaclones and just the toys without any storyline or background behind each robot) before the US even adopted it and turned it into a cartoon.

Since then, there have been several generations.  There's G2 (Generation 2), Headmasters, Targetmasters, Destrons, Beast Wars, Minicons, Animated and many more I fail to recall.  

One of the most common characters in all generations, be it in a different form or variation each time is the character Optimus Prime, who is usually the Leader of the Autobots (the good guys).  If I'm not mistaken, this character has been the robot with the most toy releases and variations ever.

Last Christmas, courtesy of sweetie, I got my most prized Optimus Prime possession, the original and classic G1 release.   I used to have a miniture replica when I was little, but it got washed away by a flood many years ago.  It's just awesome.

And so to add to my collection of Optimus Primes, is Optimus Prime. :)  
Hail Optimus Prime !
