That brings back a lot of memories right there. I was “made in the 80’s” myself and loved the transformers as a kid. LEGO just actually came out with an Optimus Prime set that actually transforms. It’s in my to build pile but will probably be one of the next ones I build. Thanks for sharing!

Reminds me of my favorite toy growing up. It was a Ralstoy Mayflower tractor trailer model. My family moved in 1978 to the Philly area during my birthday. The Mayflower driver gave the model to me as gift.

All a man needs is his truck and a good dog lol. 🐕. You can tell where the inspiration for Optimus Prime came from

I used to have just a slew of those Transformers when I was a kid growing up in the 80's... My brother did Star Wars, I did TF. I can remember leaving them behind when I moved out of my family's house as my family broke up and I got my first apartment. My brother kept the house and cleared everything out when he wanted to move a bunch of roommates in. I'll forever kick myself when he asked me what to do with all them and I nonchalantly told him to get rid of them, the one time he listened to me. Some of the ones I had are collectors items now. Never had Prime, but a mint G1 Prime with accessories can go for a several hundred bucks at auction.
