BLOG: Plastic Crack – Transformers Generation 2 Hero Optimus Prime
|This is Plastic Crack – posts, usually of video reviews, that continuously stimulate the collector passion through demonstration of a figure’s features. More importantly, these mainly comprise of items in the CATALOGUE wishlist.
During ToyCon 2014, the Transformers Pinoy Collectors group had its "History of Convoy" display which featured different iterations of Optimus Prime/Convoy throughout various lines.
Included in the display was Hero Optimus Prime, the second of three Optimus Prime figures in Generation 2, and the first to depart from the Generation 1 look. While stocky, gimmick-based, and has stability problems, it still has that certain vintage appeal that warrants an addition to the CATALOGUE.
