When I went to Botcon 2015 back in June, there were only two remaining versions of Evasion Optimus Prime I had left to acquire. Breakout Battle "Scrapyard" Optimus was one, and Nemesis Prime was the other. We found a few dealers carrying him, the highest being around $180.00, which was the usual price for him I kept finding online. On Saturday another dealer was selling one for $120.00. My money was tight and I held off, but later that same dealer was selling one for $100.00, and Amy Lynn Rosina purchased it for me as an early birthday-present.
This is an absolutely gorgeous toy, and arguably the most beautiful deco to be found on the Evasion Optimus mold. I'm not usually a big fan of black Optimus repaints, but with the red eyes and windows, dark-blue tires, silver and turquoise trim, and a turquoise rifle, this toy POPS! It looks fantastic in both modes, and retains all of the excellent overall qualities of the Evasion mold to boot. He's the jewel of my assortment of Evasion Primes, and I enjoy him immensely.
Thank you Amy!!
