Transformers Artifact of the Week: Generation Two Dairy Queen Optimus Prime
So, I’ve had one of these without the stickers for years, and finally managed to find a mint one with all the stickers. To be honest, this thing is a piece of crap.
Available in Dairy Queen Pick-Nic meals in 1994 (or 1995), this toy has no articulation, no transformation, and no hands. The stickers look ridiculous, I don’t know what they were thinking. They have nothing to do with Optimus Prime. There are no real instructions on the stickers, though the sheet seems to outline the toy. It makes no sense to put the awful readout screen (I assume that’s what it is) sticker over the molded chest, or the two stickers with the two dots on them on his face and grill, so I put those on his back. This toy was $55 on eBay, but I’ve been looking for a mint one for years. That wouldn’t seem so much for something like this if it wasn’t a steaming pile of crap.
As always, you can find over 9000 Transformers merchandise items and collectibles at TFMuseum.com.
