Beyond the action figures, we get into all the other things like apparel, games, and other items made with the Transformers brand on them. The cartoon was such a big hit the shelves were often bare of toys. Arguably, the next most popular thing to the toys was apparel for which there was everything made from to wear from head to toe including hats, t-shirts, underwear, shoes, and everything in between. Like most wearables from Generation 1, very few of them survived because kids wore them out. So it is particularly rare to find these artifacts in-tact and even rarer still in the package.
Today's Optimus Prime shot looks at something in that was dead center to in Transformers apparel, the Optimus Prime Belt produced in 1985 by Pyramid Industries. Made of an elastic-cloth for the belt, the coolest part is they used the pencil topper mold to make the buckle. Which is not much bigger then the original as it was made for small children, regardless of the "ONE SIZE FITS ALL" label.
