Maybe some of you have see them in stores, but Hasbro has a line of Transformers toys aimed at people who want an affordable larger Transformer. This is the Titan Changer line under the Authentics umbrella and so far we have had G1 mainstays like Prime, Megatron, Bumblebee, ect. But now, we have our first Beast Wars character too, Optimus Primal. We have an image of the robot mode from The Entertainer website but not the alt mode. While obviously aimed at families on a budget, I'd advise against knocking on these as they do the job fine for kids interested in larger figures and are easy to transform back and forth. I speak from experience as a dad of a four year old who plays with these toys. And it's cool to see Primal get that status of reliable sellers within the TF brand, appealing to younger kids (and most importantly their parents buying the toy). We have also put images of the others in the line to show how the proportions are shared across the line.

Interestingly enough, while Primal will be a big part of the ROTB toyline and there are ROTB Titan Changers coming, this particular toy is not from that line. So we will get more of these soon, but looking more like their movie counterparts.

That Primal looks like a satyr with his thin proportion and his... HOOVES.
Only a set of horns is missing to complete the look.

Why do all the tit!n changers look like simplified cyberverse warrior class that was then upscale into a Voyager no changes, and stretched until it was leader height?

Primal is so skinnyIm sure his alt mode looks like a literal monkey

Because both are based on the Evergreen designs.

Literal waste of plastic. Scores one less for the environment.

Unless it's one hundred percent recyclable..and then it is just a literal waste of time.

Agreed, I've seen this line move off shelves in the bargain shop near me. I'd say Hasbro succeeded in making a budget line

You'd be surprised. Kids love those massive 5 poa (points of articulation) action figures. After all kids in the 80s did without toys with knees or elbows (unless transformation called for it)

I'll also add that they keep making those "Shampoo bottle" giant cheap figures of Marvel, Star Wars, and Transformers. They keep making them because they keep selling them.

As a small kid, I never liked "overarticulated" figures that end up like "spaghetti monsters" and I rather just go WHAM BAM BOOM! :michaelbay:

May I also point out that one of the more popular toy line ever in the world that still going strong to these days are Playmobil. No knees, no elbows, same style since 1975.

BTW, my earliest memories of an "action figure" are these little guys:

I've never bought any Authentics or Evergreen figures, but it's nice to see Optimus Primal represented in there, I'm happy that the end of Kingdom is not the end of new Beast Wars toys, and the art on the packaging is very nice.

I am also unaware of the area where authentics are available (in the U.S.). They sell their size class on eBay (so much for being affordable). The only one I even consider is Wheeljack.

Would a tiny inexpensive Optimus Primal based off of the Kingdom mold interest you? Smol Monke anyone? Well, if that sounds fun, well we have some fun news for you. Below are images of the new Authentics toys released for 2023 in Taiwan. Optimus Prime, Optimus Primal and Bumblebee will be released at the Bravo size which is similar to core class, while a brand new larger Starscream along with a repacked Optimus Prime and Bumblebee will be available in Alpha class which is in between deluxe and voyager sized. For an idea of scale, you can check out the image of the boxes below. That Primal may be small and cheap but he does have a cute feature where his two guns can be used in his fists or as shoulder canons like in the cartoon. This is unrelated to the Rise of the Beasts film and serves more as a classic Optimus Primal made to be affordable for families shopping at places like Family Dollar. In Canada, these have been available at Canadian Tire.

It's funny how despite the whole point of Evergreen TFs being they can show up in ANY store with even the tiniest toy section, so many specific figures somehow end up being indigenous to just one chain, determined largely by country or even state/province.

Hope Primal comes Stateside, but if any Canadian Seibertronians want to trade for Authentics Arcee, just let me know and I'll find you one with the best paint job possible!

Really like Starscream, it's a better looking figure than the Bravo version with the flat cockpit. He really looks a lot like the control art, just needs some more colors.

Primal looks great, though the blue on his chest looks like it was done with a spray can, lots of over paint. I wonder if he's too big to stand next to the small Transmetal Primal released in Japan.

While I think it's weird this guy isn't seeing a Legacy release, I want him nonetheless. He'll look great next to my Core collection. I'm honestly hoping Hasbro keeps releasing characters in the Core class no matter the line, they're an excellent way to build up entire armies of figures when one can only afford the occasional larger figure.

This is one of the few authentics toys I can appreciate. Kids toys can be good, see! But one question, why does he have guns instead of swords? Thinking like a kid swords would be cooler because they are unique for tfs.

That's because his shoulder canons serves a dual purpose here. So no extra budget for the swords.

While the Authentics line is not covered heavily since it isn't part of any reveals and is not even meant for big box retailers, the Optimus Primal toy did interest fans since it works with the core class collection Hasbro has been setting up in the Generations lines. However, as you will see below, this is not a core class toy, size wise. It is between the core class and deluxe class, being almost as big as a Studio Series Bumblebee toy. We have two reviews below to give you a better look at the figure. We don't have more info regarding his availability since there is no set rule for where figures like these may end up or when they will show up in various markets.

From TF fan France who posted on Botposting.

Authentics bravo class Optimus Primal.
He's... actually pretty good. I expected this to be very hollow and weightless like the other ones from the same toyline, but no. It's the opposite.
He has a decent amount of articulation, NONE of the pieces have fallen off, he doesn't look very hollow except on his legs and a little on the arms, and he actually has weight.
The painting and sculpting are good.
The arms and legs can bend and because they're on a balljoint they can also swivel. The head can only look from side to side in robot mode and the gorilla head can only look up and down.
For the accessories he has two blasters which are stored on his back.
He unfortunately doesn't have his two swords.
I'd say it's a good Optimus Primal for those looking for cheap.

The hollow bits are less incongruous than I thought. The bot looks great, the gorilla looks great, and that transformation is quick and easy. If I ever see it at Canadian Tire, I'll pick him up for sure.

No sets for any Authentics toys so far.

Not even 3D printed filler pieces or upgrade kits exist for any and those seriously needs them. Sure, those would also defeat the point of Authentics, but some designs are really good and could deserves the upgrade.

Shame that because some figures like Barricade are really good but terribly painted. He'd really benefit from window and door decals.
