Toys R Us Inspired G1 Optimus Prime Custom by strata32000 is More Then Meets Toy Aisle

Ebay never ceases to surprise with everything from the ultimate vintage toys to the most modern Transformers even before they hit retail. Then there's the plethora of custom figures that are mostly pedestrian attempts at adding more details and shine to a figures' paint apps. But the most interesting things I see are the re-imagined customs that bring together concepts that would never otherwise happen.

One that just came up recently is Ebay seller strata32000's Custom 1980's Toys R Us Inspired Optimus Prime. What would normally seem like a goofy idea, turned out to be quite festive and smart with an all-new look from the box down to the cab and trailer. Toys R Us is gone, but it lives on in our twisted memories, as strata32000 explains below.

For sale today is a Custom 1980's Toys R Us Inspired Optimus Prime.

I had the request from two friend's who wanted to see what I would do if I was to make a Custom Optimus Prime as a tribute to one of the most beloved toy stores of all time.

For starters my buddy Richard suggested that it would look cool if I changed the wording of, "The Transformers" by using the same font used for the Toys R Us logo. Doing this was a great way of capturing the 80's toy store with one Of the most iconic you brands of our time.

The box is a retro kids dream with the classic Hasbro graphics and Toys R Us element's.

Optimus is painted icy blue with white trailer.

The stickers are included and are still on the sheet. The box is the same size as the G1 Prime box and is made of thick paper stock.

The whole set is an awesome display piece that many will be in awe of.
