Case fresh!  Our consignor acquired an incredibly rare factory sealed case of Optimus Prime Pepsi (6) and submitted the very best for grading.  

This is an extremely attractive high-grade MISB (mint in sealed box) example of one of the hobby’s great icons: Optimus Prime.  Optimus Prime is not only appealing to G1 collectors but has wide crossover appeal to nearly every high-end hobbyist that appreciates the beloved decade of the 1980’s.  Rarely do we come across an example as nice as this one – clean and crisp, both front and back, with beautiful bold colors.  This piece is “case fresh” and exhibits no colorbreak whatsoever along the edges and the factory tape is present and remains firmly intact on each end.  The reverse is flawless and free of the typical G1 flap crease.  Desirable mint condition Pepsi sticker adorns the front.  Those issued with the Pepsi sticker are believed to have been released in a much smaller quantity than those without.  Recently graded, AFA has assigned this one an overall 80+ with desirable subgrades of 80-85-80.  This is an outstanding example in all respects, and one of the most recognizable pieces in the entire hobby.  A great opportunity to acquire the icon of the Transformers franchise in factory sealed “case fresh” condition.   Encapsulated by AFA (80+, 80-85-80), #17284073
