Most likely a new mold(with two robot modes) and combiner(as he comes with a prime armor).

What if Punch/Counterpunch is a retool of Jazz, with the head flipped around to go between chest and roof chests? And maybe actual rotating fists, since Jazz does have wrist joints even if they are useless, but this time they will be more useful?

Either way, stoked for Punch. Now I gotta hope that when Nemesis, Punch/Counterpunch, Blastoff, and Repugnus come in stock, I can scoop them up.

As for the final 2 Prime Masters, what if towards the end of the year we get 2 new boxsets, one with Monstructor and one with Dinoking, and they come with the final 2?

Oh crap, I misread that, too. Puch/Counterpunch is going to be one complicated figure basically having five modes: Punch, Counterpuch, car, arm, and leg. I was happier thinking he wasn't going to be a combiner and they'd be able to do something more G1 with the figure like giving it proper four arms. But either way I'm buying two.

You know, what if this is a new mold or a heavy retool and the tradeoff for making 2 separate robot modes was ditching the combiner peg? The prime armor might be just that (armor) in this case.

8 steps to go from autobot to decepticon sounds like a little more than just a simple retool of an existing mold.

Transformers Power of the Primes Optimal Optimus Found at Australian Retail

Thanks to a sighting reported on Ozformers by user Starshine, we have news that the newest leader class figure for Power of the Primes, Optimus Primal and Optimal Optimus, have been found at Australian retail! The figure was found at a Big W in Warringah Mall. It was the only Optimal Optimus available at that store, though it did have also have the other 3 leader figures currently available there as well. This release is set to correspond with the Australia Mid-Year Toy Sale, with the leader class deals beginning on June 21st.

Check out the image of Optimal below, and let us know if you plan to pick up this new Leader class figure! And when this guy shows up in the other regions of the world, let us know!

Good to see he's made it down here (along with Rodimus Unicronus apparently, whom I hadn't realised was in Australia yet either). If he's around during Big W's toy sale I may have to pick him up after all; he's not the most appealing to me but for under $70 it's hard to say no to such a unique figure.

Now all I need is for the Wave 2 Deluxes and Wave 3 Prime Masters to turn up around here, and I'll be all set for "needs" from this line... it's weirdly refreshing not feeling a compulsion to buy every single toy like I was doing during TR :lol:

I spent about half the day trying to figure out what mold they might use (since I HIIIIIIIIIGHLY doubt they would use an entirely new mold) and the one that I thought would fit best is Jazz. Especially considering that, apart from sharing his combiner joint with Drag Strip, he is one of the VERY few to not get a repaint/remold/retool.

As for Prime Masters, I'm still not convinced that there will just be another wave. Given that SO MUCH of Power of the Primes was (unintentionally) leaked, I could see Hasbro withholding a wave of toys to be a surprise.
THINGS I WILL NEVER "GET OVER":
- Misassembly of TFCC Bludgeon, G2 Onslaught and Pyra Magna
- Siege Chromia's lack of combiner port

I'm confused as to how anyone could say prima is evil when it comes with an autobot who pretends to be a decepticon. Also the primes aren't overtly evil in this toyline as any faction can use any prime master for the abilities. Actually the only one that can be confirmed to be evil is megatronus.

It does to me too. But.... has there ever been an exclusive that has an all new mold before?...I can't remember if there has been. I've always known one to be a retool a just repaint of a previous mold.

I watched Emgo's review of Optimal Optimus yesterday, and I was a teensy bit disappointed. I mean, he only looks great in bot and munky modes, ok in "jet" mode(it gets a pass because that's what the original toy did), but I was most disappointed with Optimus Primal. I was willing to forgive the lack of munky mode for him because I thought he'd look good in spaceship/surfboard/slab mode, but no. It was just Primal folded up, with his giant backpack forming the front half. I was then willing to forgive THAT if Primal himself looked great and integrated into OPOP more, but double whoopsie. Primal only looks good in front,nowhere else, and he is only just a backpack for basically all modes. The cockpit can't fit a Titan/Prime Master, his weapons look awkward, and Optimal Optimus' munky mode only looks great with Primal integrated to it.

All that said, he's not a bad figure. He is definitely not perfect, but good. I like him. Is he worth retail price? For me, no. I might get him if he goes on sale though. For extreme BW fans though, I guess you'd probably like him.

I am not a BW fan. But will still get him. Btw bro, almost ALL TFs look like slag at the back and still look kick azz(and have awesome game play too)

Once you get them in hand, your perspective of him will change. Take PotP Optimus, don't even look at his back but Orion Pax as an individual is an awesome figure(just don't look behind :lol: , same with the "evolved" mode., just avoid putting too much looking behind.

I'd imagine the same too for this munkee jet.

Cant wait to get my hands on that Optimus Primal. But I am even more excited that finally after all this time, I can replace my original G1 Punch/CP in my CHUG collection with a new figure. Really hoping that he turns out way cool. I would like no combiner or titan gimmick, but guess we have to wait and see. This will almost be all my B/C list character wants in Generations form. If I am lucky Punch/CP will have his TF: Headmasters head sculpt. Please, please.

Just riffing here but do the Clones from TR count? Or Deluxe CW Groove? Even Shuttle Blast off? The last two weren't really "new" but new to the Western market.

Like they did for the Universe repaints.
Got Depth Charge and he's awesome. But his :MAXIMAL: on top of his head have been changed for a :BOT: . Like all the other Beast Wars repaints in Universe. Still, the :MAXIMAL: molded under his wings remain, but they are not painted.

I thought most of the TLK Hot Rod figures were actually remolds of AOE Lockdown.
