"Year of the Snake" Platinum Edition Optimus Prime (from Hasbro) In Singapore's Toys'R'Us

OPTIMUS-PRIME-SNAKE-01

Spotted at Toys'R'Us at Tampines Mall, was this auspiciously packaged Transformer collectible, featuring Optimus Prime! First bought popped into my head then: That the box storage was filled with Mandarin Oranges! LOL

This Platinum Edition Optimus Prime comes in a window box with opening flap, and features gloss-gold printed over a slightly darker red box, and the text "Year of the Snake" certainly marks the timeline of this figure! Price is SGD$119.90. Not exactly "art toy" news-worthy, but tis a swell way to make a product "relevent" to a celebratory season … at the very least packed to "sell"? LOL

BBTS has it on pre-order for US$79.99, and there's another Omega Supreme version to be had as well (more images posted here)… and for a moment, I was severely tempted … but I remembered "why" I stepped into Toys'R'Us in the first place (Looking for TOUMA's Power Rangers … yes, I am being naive that a toy-miracle could happen lol).
