Botcon 2014 Custom Class Deluxe Knight Primal Prime
Mold: Transformers: Cybertron Deluxe Optimus Primal (Repainted, No Mold Changes)
I’m not a huge fan of this mold (more on the mold here). This isn’t a bad looking toy considering it is an unpainted custom class toy. I know there is a lot to consider when picking the custom class toy as certain toys are harder to put together than others, but this was the best they could come up with? I have long believed that the custom class as it currently exists is a joke. You can’t learn how to customize toys buy building one from a kit that you can’t possibly do on your own. Previously it was really only about people getting the toy so they could flip it on ebay and pay for a big chunk of their trip. Now for two years, Fun Pub has decided that they can’t possibly not get a piece of that, so they’ve made these pre-built unpainted versions. They should scrap the class as it is and do a class on how to customize an off the shelf toy. That would actually teach people how to customize toys.
