Amazing Black Optimal Optimus Prototype Discovered From Transformers Beast Wars Line

Transformers collectors everywhere has been drooling over the amazing vintage unproduced figures and other arifacts showing up on Ebay from seller z75sales such as the G2 Menasor set that sold for a whooping $27,000 USD!!!
