Greetings Seibertronians! YouTube reviewer and fellow Seibertronian PrimeVsPrime has uploaded a video review of the upcoming Netflix voyager release of Optimus Primal and Rattrap! These figures are due to be released in wave 3 of the Walmart-exclusive Netflix subline later this year.

Both figures in this two-pack are redecos of their regular Kingdom releases in slightly different colors, mostly featuring a darker color palette. Neither deco is truly any more accurate to their original appearances in the Beast Wars cartoon, so their color schemes are likely depicting what they will look like in the upcoming Kingdom portion of Netflix's War for Cybertron Trilogy.

You can view PrimeVsPrime's video review embedded below:



What do you think of these redecos? Do you think they look better that the Kingdom releases? Will you be picking this up? Let us know in the Energon Pub forums!

I don't have them, and these aren't different enough for me to want them either. These are the most minimal changes to a release i can recall in recent memory. These could just be considered a running change of the toys colors and very few would notice if they were in the traditional Kingdom packaging.

I don't have them (never ever saw Primal in stores), but I want do them, so I'm going with these ones.

If The idea is to have toys that represent the line on the shelves when the show comes out, they are failing miserably. The show comes out in the end of July. You have more-or-less 2 Cheetors on the shelves at the same time (I know we had 3 Megaton's previously... :HEADHURTS: ). 2 other characters were from previous entries in the animated series, and I seriously doubt Deep Cover will be in Kingdom...

If any of these deluxes have any appeal, I guess it would be Cheetor. I posted the pic of the small endcap display a couple weeks ago at a local walmart, there were 4 of each deluxe, I passed on them all. I'll be getting the Seeker merely for the BM's, and Megatron just for Skelivore (and hoping to sell Megatron). Wave 3 is by far the weakest of all the Netflix waves. Aside from hardcore completionists, it really doesn't offer much of anything.

So I just transformed Sparkless Bot, A.K.A Rusty. Not only is the paint stellar (except the rear of the vehicle but eh, tradition), he feel absolutely fantastic in hand. This thing is a work of art. No regrets spending the big bucks importing him.

I think green Unicron was about £80 at some bic stores but way too much to see and do over there on top of buying cool stuff.


Did Takara include the... black and smelly toxic waste in the box? :SICK:

It smells? Had no idea Hasbro made you go excavating for pieces until I saw some of the Netflix reviews. :lol:

Still on the fence about Cheetos since I like the darker blue, but not the lack of paint apps elsewhere. And since I already own normal Prime, I’ll skip out on the latest set.

Bleh. Netflix Primal just does not appeal to me. Too dark, and the gorilla chest panel color not matching the sides of the chest would drive me nuts. Happy with my retail release.

In other Netflix figure news, the Wal-Mart near my house had three Cheetors...and nothing else, LOL. I would have expected it to be the reverse, like the above pics, so no idea what happened there. All I wanted was the Cheetor, though, so I was fine with it.

Waiting on my Dinobot to arrive from Pulse and I'm done with the original five (I'm just sticking with Generations Rhinox and Rattrap, they look great with the other Kingdom figures). Still need to find an Airrazor, and likely a Tigatron whenever he comes out.

Still need some more Predacons for this line. Megatron is AMAZING, and Blackarachnia is pretty good, but I'm surprised the only other one they've officially announced is Scorponok. That's over half of the S1 Preds with nothing official on the horizon. I'm filling the gap a little with my Generations Waspinator, but throw us a bone here, guys! :BANG_HEAD:

I saw sparkless bot, deep cover, and wheeljack at Walmart the other day but no luck with the only one I want, sparkless seeker :(

Some are beginning to speculate that his deco may actually be based on any of the blue Sideswipe generics seen in the background of the Siege episodes.

I can understand preferring the Netflix colors, but I think PriveVsPrime is way off base if he thinks they are more "animation accurate" to Optimus Primal as seen in the original 1996 Beast Wars cartoon. The white is too off white and the red is too dark. The feet are more on model, but the chest is less so. I think the theory that it's all to make the gorilla mode more realistic is the best explanation so far, but who can really say but Hasbro and Takara Tomy?

The blue outline on the chest is wrong on both versions. It's supposed to be dark gray.

Yeah. I don't care about the Sparkless and the drone and even though I like the Sideswipe mold and love that blue deco, Deep Cover has no real attachment to me, so unless I can get him at a discount, he'll be a pass as well. But i want that Cheetor. I didn't get the Kingdom version because that light blue looks bad.

I actually have a Netflix Cheetor. I got it and the regular and compared them, decided to just go with Kingdom version. If you want it it's yours.

I hate to be a complainer, but this is just cruel Hasbro. Why re-release these figures with nothing different other than a very slight change in coloration? Am I missing something??

For those who missed out? Like ME? The shelves of my stores were always devoid of Wave 1 Kingdom Voyager figures.

I just started seeing wave 1 Kingdom in abundance this week at Target, though I did see Rattrap really early on when Thrust was still around. Still no Cyclonus, which is who I want.

That's why I specified "Voyager class".

PM'd.

Is the Netflix Primal closer to being show accurate?
