The Year of the Monkey wouldn't be complete without some kind of Optimus Primal release. With that said, Seibertron.com is proud to bring you a gallery of Transformers Platinum Edition Year of the Monkey Optimus Primal. This big guy is a redeco of the Robots in Disguise (2001) Air Attack Optimus Primal which was originally intended for the Beast Machines line. While this version retains electronics, the sounds are different from the original release.

Love the comparison pics with the two Primal Prime toys.

Coincidentally enough, though, the first Universe (2008) Voyager class Leo Prime toy ended up in this Primal Prime-esque color scheme as well, complete with a silver mane, even.

It is amazing how good this color scheme can make a beast-bot look. 8-)

Those images make me wish I had the money to be able to purchase any modern Prime figures (as in the character not the show)

I want to build an army of Primes I have started that but right now it's a "squad" and not an army.

That Primal doesn't look half bad. Too bad it's so colossally overpriced.

You mentioned new sounds. Does it retain Garry Chalk's voice?

Nope. It's all Peter Cullen's voice now.

I've got the toy in-hand, mine doesn't sound like Peter Cullen at all. It sounds like someone else to me.

Just watched the video. Sound effects are the same as mine (as expected). That doesn't sound like Peter Cullen.

Sure fooled me. Sounded to me like those Movieverse toys Cullen lent his voice to. If not him then someone doing an Optimus Prime voice impression.

Certainly not Garry Chalk, at least. ;)^

As for Cullen, I can't recall any Transformers toys that he's done any toy voices outside of the movie toys. As I'm sure you're aware, he gets paid a hefty sum to do voice work and this doesn't seem like the type of item that Hasbro would want to pay out that kind of money for his voice talents.
