By way of this auction on ebay, we have a very rare look at some unreleased toys from the tail end of Transformers Generation 2 that were never released. These toys are redecos of the Combat Hero Optimus Prime and Megatron, with Optimus Prime in a primarily blue deco with red faceplate, and Megatron as a grey tank with green jungle camo. No robot mode images for either unfortunately, but this is one of the very few times you get to see these, so check out these images. If you fancy owning them it’ll set you back at least $2,000 though…
To each his own because some hard core collectors like prototype.
Now there's MOC samples for low low price of $5000 a piece. No bids yet, gee wonder why. The backs do have a Hasbro tag though which is pretty cool to see. 3/30/95, was that when these guys would have been released?

Guess no one thinks they're worth $4000+
Hey what happen to the bid and why did the price drop??
Interesting. Its nice to see some of that classic Card artwork, and I kinda like that Megatron's color scheme.
Gotta love the card art work. It sure is expensive to be a kid again!!!
No thanks. I still got my G2 hero versions. I'm good.
If it was 1,ooo id buy it
WOW! I recently posted the catalogue scans from the 1995 Toyfair for these, but I thought unlike G2 Soundwave and Jazz Laser Cycles, these two were never actually produced. Nice repaints. Love that Megatron deco.
I rather like that Megatron deco, more so I dare say than either the actual G2 release or the later "Bludgeon" repaint.
hahah toy hunter. that guy buys too high and sells even higher when it comes to tf's on his show. hope he does better business off camera. the cynic in me wonders if its a half hour commercial to market the artificial inflation of toy prices. Then again if he sells this for more than the current bid of $4500… I guess its working.
Probably because that's the site which the OP grabbed the link from…
Look at the price for the prototype……
Wow. There is a bid. Whoever has that sort of bank… I could use a Grand Maximus for my collection…
Why would they not actually show them off in robot mode?
I mean the TF Wiki could benefit from having a photo of the toys that aren't just magazine cut outs. Hopefully who ever wins these will do that for the TF Wiki.
The G2 Hero Prime is one of my favorite Primes. Cool to see the pics, but no bids from me on this auction. Good luck to whoever takes it home.
And Takara recently redeco'd Universe Legends Megatron in this deco too, which is the nearest I'll get to owning this!
I remember the Prime selling for 4k alone!
Optimus and Megatron should just bust out a ruler and measure already to settle once and for all who's the winner of the Cybertronian Wars.
