We have some new in-package images of upcoming toys from Transformers Power of the Primes. These were all found on Weibo. We see Optimal Optimus (notice the packaging is not labeled as Optimus Primal) in his package, with a marking signifying his win in last year's fan poll. In the back we can see all the renders we previously saw, including the one showing an empty chest cavity.

We also have an image of the back of Novastar's card which only shows the Prime Master coming out in wave 3. Speaking of these Prime Masters, we have in package images of those as well, which include Solus Prime, Megatronus and Quintus Prime.

Finally, we have the box art for Predaking.

Enjoy!

Optimal Optimus? What a weird choice to the line. Although I suppose how they've used him as a mech suit to Primal is inkeeping with the PotP line. Never been a fan of the Optimal design. Even stranger they've given him the Monkey on a Surfboard altmode too.

Not when he was the one who won the fan's choice poll for this line.

Oh ok, fair enough. I thought he was just a random BW nod.

He's the big deal figure for this line. The one chosen to inherit the Matrix as the new leader of Cybertron with the Power of the Primes.

I understood that and what they were going for, hence why I said he was inkeeping with the line. I only noticed it at all, when I just logged in and saw the toy on one of the side articles. As I said, I wasn't a fan (I actually thought it one of the worst (if not The Worst) BW designs) so it intrigued me to see it's return.

Didn't Optimus Primal win? As opposed to Optimal Optimus.

Optimal Optimus is Optimus Primal.

I'm really hoping for a Primal Prime repaint.

For a guy with a Beast Wars avatar I'm more than amused that you somehow don't know that, William-james88. :lol:

I was making an argument on semantics.

A toy for Optimus Primal was voted, not a toy for Optimal Optimus. Its like getting a micromaster Hot Rod when we voted Rodimus or getting Cybertron Leo Breaker when voting for Cybertron Overhaul.

What's in a name? Using the Optimal Optimus body was the only way to make it work with the gimmick, really, especially since he got that body via Optimus Prime's Spark, housed in a Matrix container. Insert your own interpretation here, I say it's a bit of a cheat that works. :P

Considering that Optimal Optimus is the version of Primal that fused with Optimus Prime's spark it makes sense that he would be the 'Prime' form of him, so he makes sense. Furthermore aside from the original (which makes sense to join the ranks of Orion and Hot Rod) Optimal Optimus is the only one who isn't more organic than techno.
Original Optimus Primal and Optimal Optimus look like latter's the evolution of the former. Transmetal and BM bear little resemblence to the other 2, aside from alt mode.

I could have been worse. They could have used Cheetor and the monstrous BM Cheetor as his Mech Suit :P

He's Optimal Optimus because evolution gimmick. The potential to have him evolve from regular Optimus Primal (who can be seen on the back photo) to Optimal Optimus is why he was put on the poll in the first place.

That was never mentioned in the poll. Are you saying that if Shockwave won we would have had a Shockwave doing the same gimmick rather than them simply releasing a shockwave in another class? What about Arcee?

I still think that vote was rigged, no way there's that many Optimus Primal fans
