I think what is throwing some people is how early (late Novebmer) PotP wave 1 showed up in the US. But I think that had more to do with whatever distribution problems Hasbro had with TR waves 5 and 6.


Additionally PotP is the first of the new shorter brands (1 year) as opposed to CW which was a full 18 months/6 waves, and TR which also was almost 18 months, and had its 6th wave sadly cut short (Yes I know all we ever saw was a Slugslinger, however I think the idea to start annual rebranding was quite a while ago, Hasbro just didn't make it public until last year. The majority of the fan community was positive we'd see more TR revealed at SDCC in 2017, instead they showed PotP...) . T30 was a full 2 years almost, and had what...8 or 9 waves?

Having a 12 months cycle, shorter series, is going to take some getting used to, especially for some of us old fogies who don't like change ;) .

I wish he didn't have the same arms in both modes. Looks a little lazy. The original Optimal Optimus had some difference in the arms at least.

I tried but I can't think of even one thing i like about that Optimal figure.

The more I look at Primal, the less interested I am. I think I’ll just get the original to satisfy my Optimal Optimus needs.

It doesn't look like his guns will flip over his shoulder either, that's disappointing. I hope there are at least peg holes for it, cause those two guns combined into one in this case looks awful. It really feels like they didn't try

We've already seen the guns can point forward:

Also he looks really cool to me. I mean in what I expected the line gimmick to offer, and how the toys ae being made now, It's pretty good option.

At least its much better than the last time we got a new figure of that design.

That one didn't even get a correct monkey mode.

...what?

Yes he did. You just rotated the elbows and flipped the thumbs. It’s the exact same gimmick In both toys. What are you on?

There was a difference actually, the panels that cover the forearms in the original version, came off and attached to the shoulders for Robot Mode. It looks like they might be able to do that in this new toy based on the peg holes in the shoulders.

Surround the url with img tags. There's an img button you can use at the top of the full reply box.

*left a space there before the last bracket so it would not parse the tags and show the img.

The arms do change from one mode to the next since the forearms guards in gorilla mode end up being repositioned as major shoulder pylons in robot mode.

Ok well enjoy. I just find it to be one of the ugliest Transformers figures I've ever seen (not this particular toy's fault but the original design). All the modes look hideous (that space ship mode is latter G1 levels of crud) and not helped by that awful colour scheme. Maybe it's just a Beast Wars fan thing of which I never was. Anyways that's just my opinion. Hope the figure does the job for you. :)

That's because the photographer didn't detach the panels from the arms and attach them to the shoulders like on the original toy.

You can see them on the shoulders here:

No, what he is saying is that releases are going to the normal schedule Hasbro adheres to in terms of wave releases:

Launch dates
PotP:
Wave 1: Dec 2017/Jan 2018
Wave 2: Mar/Apr 2018
Wave 3: Jun/Jul 2018
Wave 4: Sep/Oct 2018

WfC:
Wave 1: Dec 2018/Jan 2019


Exactly! Some fans seem to have the memory of a goldfish sometimes. I swear this comes up every year. We had that last year too with people not believing that Titans Return would end so early with only 1 deluxe in the final wave. But it did, and then we got POTP. Same thing will happen again.

That's what I saying. POTP was found on shelves over a month before the expected release date. If they're going to hold firm with WFC, then there's going to be some time with no new product. I just figured they launch their other line to fill the gap.

So far I am still convinced that Primal will be the best of the 3 leader molds. I am loving him and he is on the very short list once he's out
