In-Hand Images: Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Voyager Optimus Prime

Motto: "I ain't got time to bleed!"
Weapon: Gattling Gun
Courtesy of 78dm.net we have an extensive gallery of Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Voyager Optimus Prime. This figure is a brand new mold featuring "Beast Hunters" signature spiky armored style, and also see Optimus Prime returning to a cab-over type of truck. He comes with packed with two Ionic Pulse Launchers and the Star Saber.

For size comparison the figure has been posed with Transformers Prime "Robots in Disguise" Voyager Optimus Prime, as you can see the "Beast Hunters" mold appears to be quite a bit beefier. A couple of the images also feature his wavemate "Beast Hunters" Voyager Predaking, so more images of him are likely forthcoming.

Enjoy the images mirrored below:

I LOVE that face. Ticked off Optimus is ticked off. :lol:

And he looks bigger than PRiD Voyager OP, which is good.

(I also suspect we'll be getting some in-hand images of Predaking soon.)

I wonder if my WFC Optimus head will fit on him? His embarrassingly small size is to pathetic to put on display anyway so I might as well part him out.

God... Sonuva....

...Dammit.

I planned on Smokescreen (and maaaaybe Starscream) to be my only Beast Hunters figure. Now that we know he actually looks really cool, guess I gotta fish out another twenty bucks. They better make an equally-bulky-and-badass Megatron. >:oP

I'm so happy they finally ditched the MechTech-like weapon. Stupidest idea ever.

This figure looks more and more like a good idea with bad execution.

I want to like this figure, but it just looks too simple. It doesn't even appear as though the feet can be placed flat.

This would be better as a Deluxe.

This must be a move on Hasbro's part to purposefully dumb down TFs; I can't imagine that the toy designers could get this bad at making interesting, poseable TFs in only a few years, especially after seeing the level of complexity in the ROTF figures and post-ROTF Generations figures.

What recent decision of Hasbro can't the above picture apply to?

Does anyone else notice that Hasbro seems to be skimping less on the plastic? He's bigger than PRID Optimus, with beefy accessories. Also, the back of his legs aren't all hollowed out like PRID OP. I for one am really glad to see that.

Hey man, ROTF Jetfire and Rampage are pretty tough to transform. That's why I rarely touch Rampage nowadays. :-s

I was initially put off by the cartoony alt mode but I can see this as a worthwhile figure. The robot mode gives me a very Japanese old school robot vibe in its proportions kinda like mazinga z etc. he's pretty nice size wise too

Fortunately I'm content with my fe prime.
My personal prime collection so far in descending order of how great i reckon the toy is -
FE Prime, Silas Breakdown (Powerizer), Dreadwing (Powerizer), FE Bulkhead, Voyager StarScream (Powerizer), Ratchet, Soundwave, Arcee, Voyager Megatron (Powerizer), Wheeljack, Thundertron (Powerizer), Ultra Magnus (Powerizer), Knockout, Cliffjumper, Bumblebee,Airachnid

I take back what I said when we first saw this guy. I am liking his jet pack, though I am going to ditch his sword for one or two of power master prime's black guns, oh or maybe Dotm voyager prime's gun, or maybe make an even longer run on sentence.

I want this!!! I want this now!!! This is the first time since classics that I can say this IS Optimus Prime. One small observation is that it appears we've moved from Prime=Ax to Prime=Sword. Anybody know if these are in hand overseas anywhere?

These BH figures remind me of the Unicron Trilogy stuff where fun(ction) > form. Which is cool and all, though I think I'll be skipping most of it.

I was getting the same vibe. I couldn't quite place my finger on it.

I was thinking that too when I picked up Voyager Soundwave. Not the best fig, but pretty hefty. Hav'n't got a deluxe fog since Vehicon, but Smokescreen looks big as well.

Woah... Look like Animated Optimus Prime reimagined by Rob Zombie!
HE'S SO METAL!

I love the Madmaxesque garbage truck mode.
That robot mode is pure concentrated baddassery. And that head sculpt... look like OP is tired of playing nice!

I'm looking forward to see him in store. :BOWDOWN:

What's more, the voyagers are starting to look like voyagers again! :DANCE:
