Site sponsor BigBadToyStore seems to have mistakenly updated their product listing the Voyager Class Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Optimus Prime with new images of his upcoming Ultimate Class version. Check the two new images out below.

I think his "battle wheel" is kinda cool. But I don't like that shield at all. The sword's kinda cool, but I like the Voyager version's green sword better.

I already have the Voyager version, and this looks like it's practically the same figure, just upscaled. The Voyager is good enough for me. I'll pass on this.

In all seriousness, I wonder if they actually just repurposed the Voyager head?

I'm an optimus prime completists (in that I get new US released molds , no repaints) but even I'm not sure about that thing. Voyager size may be my limit here.
waiting for these:

Generations Arcee
Generations Optimus Prime
Generations Megatron
Generations Legends Cliffjumper
Generations...oh just the lot of them.

Holy... what?

Why's his head so small?

What's with the hoola hoop?

Why is his vehicle mode stubby and full of holes?

Why did he steal my Monster Hunter characters' sword?

Think I'll pass on this and grab the Voyager Beast Hunters Optimus.

I know Optimus Prime figures have a history of having fairly lazy transformations...but this one is monumentally lackadaisical. Don't bother filling in those gaps with panels or anything, right?

Oh for Primus sake!!! This thing looks absolutely terrible. I mean,the vehicle mode is riddled with gaps and obvious kibble and the weapons do little to obscure it. Added with the stupid hoola hoop on his back and the weapons also looked better photoshopped. I mean seriously,there are much better figures of Prime such as the APS-01 Striker I could be splurging on!!! This is an easy pass for me. Also,where in the Allspark is Predaking?

Ok so I own the Voyager BH Optimus Prime and I have to admit it's nothing special. In fact, it does nothing for me, so I've decided I'm gonna sell it at TFCon in Mississauga this July.

I can't stand it!

And now this!!!!?????
PASS! PASS! PASS!

I'm an Optimus Prime fan but I'm very selective and this doesn't even come under my radar.

Wow, what a shitty design.

Yes, just what I thought an Optimus Prime needed. An handle on the back of the truck mode so that I can carry it easily.

No (probably $49.99 or more and who-knows-when), but the Voyager version is already available, and it's both better and cheaper. Do yourself a favor and get the Voyager and forget this thing even exists.

Ha ha ha! Beetlejuice X3!

Actually the first image that popped into my head was that thing with the tiny pin head and huge arms from those horrible Puppet Master movies!

I must say I'm not in the least bit impressed by this iteration of Optimus. Absolutely nothing screams "BUY ME!" about it. I too will stick with the Voyager.

Motto: "never forget what you don't know"
Weapon: Blunt Force Battle Clubs
This is what happens when Hasbro (and kids possibly) think that Transformers need to do more than 'transform' to be a toy ;)

I'm buying this, because I know I can make it look better and it's good for a custom I wanna try, and I like it's size. Who knows, once I've got it I'll probably find the...wheel(?)fun to play with. But it's a shame he doesn't have the wings the voyager has (the ONLY thing I like about that toy) If I had the money I'd buy the voyager now, since I've seen a decent Nemesis custom, which fits the mold. As it is, I have no interest in either as they are :-( Both are right royal crap, especially the lousy colours. Do we know why Prime has green windows? Is it the cheapest colour plastic? Is the latest old wives tale that kids get sublimenly (sp?) controlled by green? Or is it just mandatory it looks as toyish as possible?
I mean, surely this would still be as fun to play with by a 6 year old if the windows were blue and the head was bigger? Right?

I know many have their complaints over Hasbro, but this has even the usually open minded me baffled. It's like they've lost it. Either that or kids nowadays really will buy any garbage...

And yes, that head is being replaced. Dunno with what yet... :HEADHURTS:

I really really hope not many people buy this guy... Hasbro needs to learn that they are huge because of the people that enjoy their products. now they are big enough to not care and thats some damn bs. and they are putting out bad toys that people still buy because they are a big enough brand name to attract the general idiots out there.

Now is everyone in this effing world so foolish? ... I guess that's why you see starbucks everywhere: "worse coffee for more!" should be their slogan. But there's too many stupid "cool" people so they simply pay more to be cool in public... fkkkkkk man. go to jack in the box for a dollar coffee that tastes bomb.

And fkking dont buy cheap plastic terribly designed beast hunters figures. You know somethings gone wrong when the cyberverse figs are THE ABSOLUTE best part of a series. I gotta give them abominus though. amazing figures of what i've gotten so far (hungrr and twinstrike). Save the money from 4 or 5 bad BH figures you were gonna buy and give that money to a third party. Who A)makes way better toys and B)cares about their supporters/ customers. PLEASE. dont support these huge corporations that are lowering ALL standards possible for an extra buck.

Without anybody reacting to all these lowered standards, they will just keep lowering quality and raising prices. Stand up for what we deserve!
