SCOOP - Yugoslavian Transformers - Are they for real? Read this thread to find out...


Three days ago my fellow collector from Belgrade bought a boxed, complete G1 Optimus Prime off of a local auction website.









The toy had all the trappings of an IGA Optimus (red blotches for eyes, red on die-cast chest not matching red plastic, etc.). What made him take a closer look at what he bought was when he opened the trailer and spotted lighter blue plastic parts inside, while the roller was dark blue.

So off he went to browse the internet and find out what he had. That is also the time when he spotted a curious thing on the packaging. A logo. This one:









That is a logo of Yugoslavian "Marčanka" company that made toys, like this die cast car for instance (notice the logo on the bottom).




What we have here folks is an apparently IGA Optimus Prime, repackaged into a custom made package probably made by and then distributed by "Marčanka" for a yugoslavian market.

I personally still own an original G1 Optimus Prime bought here way back in '90-'91, but I do not own the packaging. Still I distinctly remember the spanish writing and my OP missing the tech spec portion of his character card. My OP comes with dark blue plastic parts in the trailer though.

We are still trying to confirm this find as there are more G1 OP's floating around here, so we will keep this updated.

Cheers,
Razorclaw
