Up for auction today is a custom Joustra
Diaclone Optimus Prime.
This figure is referred to as the gray roller/ metal trailer version of Optimus
Prime and is a pre-Transformers version made by Takara in the very early 80's.
A little information about this custom and it's box.
I started this piece by using a vintage Gray Roller/ Metal trailer Optimus Prime
and remade the "Battle Convoy" Diaclone stickers for the sides of the trailer. I played around with different sticker stocks and have finally come to
a point where I'm happy with it.
The base figure Optimus Prime is in very
Good condition for its age.
The chrome is in very good condition. With semi tight joints, minimal paint wear and the graphics on the metal trailer plates are very nice.
The figure is in great shape and has no broken parts.
The inner foam is a vintage Optimus Prime styrofoam and fits the box perfectly.
Now for the good part, "The box".
The box is totally redone to be similar but not a dead-on repro box.
I didn't want to do that to the collectors that have this ultra rare piece in their collections.
This was one of the absolute hardest
pieces I have ever done. It took a month
to redo the lined artwork and then recolored it all.
The next issue was to redo the toy pictures and text.
After the layout was finished I printed it
on chipboard so it would have the thickness of the vintage boxes.
The box is high gloss but is NOT photo paper. The box imprint is waterproof and
you can NOT scratch off the graphics.
This is an expensive print and the quality will just blow you away.
The box is C9.5 Mint with sharp clear
This will be the crown jewel of your collection.
Thank you and good luck.
