Hasbro has not really done big reveals for the actual Rise of the Beasts toyline. That's because the design team working on it is not the one we know of, it is a team separate from Mark, Evan and the other designers that work on the generations brands, and that team is not located at Hasbro HQ in Pawtucket. Which is why it's quite a change of pace to see BMac reveal the latest toy from that toyline in a new video. It is Animatronic Optimus Primal and in the video we can see how it functions.

Not only is this toy revealed today, but it is also available as of today.
Here is the Amazon link where it is available for $125 USD: https://www.amazon.com/Transformers-TRA ... 136&sr=8-1

Enjoy!

Too bad that he's so, so expensive.

I'll bid my time and see if some sale comes up.

Well, dang, have another one.

Yolopark made a licenced model kit of RotB Primal in bot mode.

Appart for that big BUCKET on the back of the truck, mainline voyager Optimus is good. REALLY GOOD. he's fun to pose, he feels right in hand, he's fun to transform, and he's just full of details that BEG to be painted.

He'll be worth the effort.

While I know it's easy to buy select Transformers on line I still hold out the hope of finding certain ones in a store. Got lucky today and found Studio Series 98, Cheetor. A big thanks from a tip from another site and went to that Walmart (Springfield, MO) this morning and found two on the shelf. Happy to finally have him in the collection.

Here's a thought having watched another review of Voyager Prime. Since what we call the mainline is referred to as "Core" by Hasbro, could this be causing confusion among store buyers as to what they're actually ordering?

The Rise of the Beasts line has become almost untennable to properly report in depth since all the toys from various waves are coming out all at once resulting in fans from different states and countries seeing different toys from the same line on the shelf. Recent-ish releases (so past 2 weeks), at least for brick and mortar include the following in the US:

Studio Series Battletrap and Cheetor at Walmart
Jada ROTB vehicles at Walmart
The Nitro Series at Kohl's (those are the Bumblebee movie reissues/redecos)
Weaponizer Scorponok at Target
Battle Changer Mirage at Target
Beast Mode Bumblebee at Target
Battle Master Primal found in US

If you have seen those on shelves and are wondering if they are worth getting, we have some video reviews for you below. And we also have a review for the Animatronic Primal. Enjoy!

Since I recently found out about a certain character making an appearance in this movie, I do wonder if Hasbro will address such a large character? I am curious now to see how that plays out in live action and hope to see the movie in a couple weeks.

That said, I still can't make heads or tails of what's available fir this movie subline. lol
So far the only solid Bot I'm liking is Battletrap. Don't really have an opinion on the any of them until I actually see the movie and how they're portrayed, but visually that's the only design that I've liked of what I've seen. Mirage could be a neat alt mode if it's done properly in either Deluxe/Voyager class, but I'm still not sure about his personality as I don't much care for the actor voicing him. On the positive side I have heard good things regarding Mirage. I've never cared for the 77 Camaro Bee so I don't ever plan to get any versions, particularly with that sad sack looking face.

Curious to see how a DLX Arcee might turn out but I'm guessing a possible reuse of SS85.

Takara has a history of doing exclusive toys for their kid centric lines, which collectors will gravitate to. We saw that in the RID 2015 line with their giant Optimus toys and in the Bumblebee line with the big Evasion Mode Optimus and now in the mainline Rise of the Beasts line with a giant Optimus Primal toy, filled with gimmicks and interaction points with other toys. This newly revealed Optimus Prime is 12 inches tall, so not made to scale with anything, and it has several 5 mm holes across the figure to integrate the beast alliance battle masters, like Cheetor, Rhinox and Skullcruncher. He also has shoulder missiles and pop out forearm guns, reminiscent of the gimmicks on the original Optimus Primal toy.

While it is a Takara exclusive product, so designed by Takara and meant for distribution in Japan, it is being imported for western fans. It is already sold out on Hasbro Pulse, where it was first revealed, but it is still available on Bigbadtoystore where you can get it for $61.99 USD https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/ ... 241551?o=1

Let us know what you think about this new toy and if you would add it to your collection.

Ahh, so this is the toy from that Japanese commercial we saw.

Looks very nice. If it's anything like Takara's upscaled Evasion Mode (Legendary) Prime he should be a real nice toy to handle.

I don't know if that big Primal is worth it after all.

As I look at the pictures, it's clear it's just the oversized voyager, hollows in the same place, tiny gorilla head, and floppy butt-flap.
So I guess this one will be an easy pass.

Yeah, that's exactly what it is. And oversized voyager for kids. Nothing wrong with that, of course, but it's funny how on social media and other websites, fans are clamoring for it saying it's better than what Hasbro is providing in the SS line. It's different, but is it better? Would this toy still be praised if it was released in the mainline with all the other kid toys instead of the Takara exclusive fanfare? Or would it be labelled as a big gimmicky toy of no consequence?

I'm sure those who praise the thing as "better" missed the memo that it's an OVERSIED version of that voyager, not a "Takara premium paintjob" of yesteryears.

If it would have come out everywhere for the standard leader price, I would have considered it. But paying more? Nope.

Beside, I have a few too many preorders on my plate already.

It's the typical TakaraTomy bias that will never go away >:oP As for the mainline Voyager comparison, it is similar but some parts feature different engineering like the feet and chest. Referring to Legendary Optimus Prime from AoE is apt however.

Are we seeing the same thing? Am I missing something?


What hollowness do you see?
Its entirely different to the Voyager we have from the main line, and we have not yet seen the Studio Series Leader class version I don't think, and it has a ton of features the main line primal doesn't have including articulated hands and forearm guns.
I don't see SS having launchable missiles either.

Last time Takara did their own version of a toy, it was great upgrade. That Legendary Prime is in fact a fantastic figure, leagues better than the original Evasion mode Prime.

The only things that are different are the articulated hands and other little details. It have the same hinges in the same place, the same proportions, the same everything.
Down to the hollowness of the hands as seen here and mos likely behind the ape feet if those were properly transformed and if we'd see the back.

Have a look:

Granted, it IS a new mold, but like that Hero Optimus or those old Optimus and Predaking "Cyberverse Commanders" boosted to enormous "voyagers". I don't see how much more...

That Primal looks so awesome! That paint job looks really nice in robot mode. I preordered from BBTS, I am excited for that one.

they really did nail the design for movie Primal. He might have one of the best movie designs period, across all movies.

Speaking of Primal, my big electronic one arrived, and I got the smaller $10 Prime and Bee. All 3 are neat.

i adore Prime and Bee with Mirage, all 3 are pretty good and pretty fun $10 toys. I got exactly what I expected and wanted for the price, and I am very happy with them, Alt modes rock too.

Big Primal is also just a really fun toy. It really entertains me. I am glad to have an auto-transforming toy, just once for my collection. And he is fun to mess around with, and for my dogs to react to.

As long as Primal has a butt flap, I don't want it. I'd rather stick with my non-transforming Yolo Park Primal if a flap-less Primal never comes out.

I found it hilarious at a local Target the endcap for this line was but in the back isle instead of the main isle. Instead they put Jurassic Park Anniversary on the endcap main isle. Is it a mistake? We'll see in the coming days. :VEHI:

When Takara announced their Ultimate Optimus Primal, many thought this was a return to form for leader class toys. In reality, it's more of an oversized figure, along the lines of Supreme Starscream. While there is plenty to love about that too, we just want you to get a good sense of what kind of toy this is before spending $60 on it. The video Takara posted on Twitter shows the transformation steps which has similarities to both the voyager and the Weaponizer Optimus Primal we got in the mainline.

Let us know what you think!

Why would anybody expect an Ultimate class figure to be a good Leader class one? I mean on the one hand why wouldn't they just call it Leader class if it is one and on the other hand we will be getting a Studio Series Leader class figure of RotB Optimus Primal this year. So it doesn't make sense to release two. It's very likely that it'll even be revealed next Tuesday.
And when I hear Ultimate (class) I think of something like TF Prime Beast Hunters Ultimate class Beast Fire Predaking. Definitely a gimmick toy.
Here's a list of all of the Ultimate (/Supreme) class figures there've been so far:

The closest ones to Leader class are DotM Optimus Prime and maybe BM Air Attack Optimus Primal.

The closest ones to Leader class are DotM Optimus Prime and maybe BM Air Attack Optimus Primal.


Yup, you mention excellent examples.

I was excited for this one. But the size kind of threw me off. Then the simplicity. I have 2 of the weaponizers one. They are great in their own right. This one, I don't know.

It's an Optimus Primal. There's only so much you can do with a Gorilla that becomes a Gorilla-ish robot. They're all simple.
