Thanks to Hypebeast, we have news on the black redeco of Titans Return Power Master Optimus Prime along with a brand new image of him in robot mode. It turns out this will be an SDCC exclusive and also available on HTS after the show. It will be sold for $50, which is almost the same as the non exclusive original figure and he will come with a ramp, rail, and hoverboard, all pictured below, making it a better deal than the original for the amount of accessories you are getting.

Here is an excerpt from the article which speaks of the design and its link to Primitive Skateboarding.

The autobot figurine was partially designed by Primitive Skateboarding founder Paul Rodriguez, and features some updates to the character’s traditional red and blue paint job. This Prime belongs to the Titans Return Powermaster reprise and is decorated in black and gold — a nod to Primitive’s signature colors. The toy figurine also comes with a ramp, rail, and hoverboard, so it can “Shreddicus Maximus” whenever he’s not battling the Decepticons.


TRANSFORMERS PRIMITIVE OPTIMUS PRIME Figure

(Ages 8 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $49.99/Available at Booth #3329 at Comic-Con International in San Diego)

Before OPTIMUS PRIME was blasting DECEPTICONS in battle, he was greasing the wheels of his skateboard with fellow skater, SHREDDICUS MAXIMUS. Shredding rad gnar on the boardwalks of the Senti Rust Pier, they up their street cred while nailing down their signature trick, the Null-Ray-Ray, annihilating the competition into mere grime… Now get ready for the gnarliest TRANSFORMERS stunt of the 21st century… TRANSFORMERS has worked with Primitive Skateboarding, the company founded by legendary skateboarder, Paul Rodriguez, to roll out this special edition TRANSFORMERS PRIMITIVE OPTIMUS PRIME Figure convention exclusive. Co-designed by Paul, the figure features Primitive Skate’s classic black and gold colors for a more sophisticated and on-brand look. To up the skateboarding theme, the figure is placed in premium Primitive Skate-inspired packaging that mimics a “skate shoe” box featuring grip-tape inspired texture. As the ultimate twist, the pack features rail, ramp and hover board accessories! The pack includes a LEADER CLASS OPTIMUS PRIME figure, a TITAN MASTER SHREDDICUS MAXIMUS figure and eight accessories. Converts from robot to tractor trailer in 23 steps and from tractor trailer to battle station in 10 steps. The TRANSFORMERS PRIMITIVE OPTIMUS PRIME Figure will be for sale during San Diego Comic-Con 2017. Following the convention, a limited number will be available on HasbroToyShop.com.


Here are the new totally radical images of the toy and set.

That is the snazziest Nucleon Quest Super Convoy has ever looked! Radical indeed!

Also, that hoverboard looks like the one Daniel rode in TFTM, but in black and yellow.

You can, you have a bunch of american freinds here and part of the staff. It aint hard for any of them to get it, they just have to order it from HTS and then once they have it they ship it to you. I have done that before. This guy is far from out of reach.

The shipping aint cheap but at least you dont have to rely on e-bay. You can buy it directly from their site.

The price is ridiculously low for a SDCC exclusive, its only $50. Thats how much the regular non exclusive version costs.

To go with this exclusive. I present to you, FORT SHREDICUS MAXIMUS
A WICKED (totally safe) half pipe!

Dual TUBULAR grind rails line the outside and have RADICAL platforms for standing on between tricks!

An EPIC 360 grind pipe for INTENSE pipe riding!

And only the most talent skater can claim the [SKATER ADJECTIVE] throne at the top of the fort!

I guess there are guns too but war totally gives off bad vibes, man.

Let's hope when the time come, it will stay on the HTS site just long enough so I can buy it. It's just a bummer that it will cost me almost 50$US in shipping and taxes alone.

You have about 48 hours - 2 weeks. Depends on how desirable this figure ends up becoming. Going off of last years HTS SDCC exclusives BTW

Instead of the weird Skateboard tie in, I wish all the gold highlights were teal (or silver where appropriate) to make a proper Scourge headmaster. Ah well, if they did that I'd have to go crazy trying to get ahold of it so maybe better of they didn't. Good luck to those wanting it as is.

Courtesy once again of fellow staff member ScottyP and Snakas' Blog, we've got a new image of the Primitive Skateboarding Optimus Prime tie-in figure exclusive to SDCC 2017! A redeco of Hasbro's Titans Return Powermaster Optimus Prime and coming with a new Skateboarding accessory for his Titan Master Shreddicus Maximus, this is the first time we've gotten an in-hand photo of him - so check out this tubular dude below and tell us what you think in our radical forums!

I will admit the deco is snazzy, but it's still Hasbro's PMOP, with its useless hands, inarticulate feet and hollow bits galore. I think I'll pass.

Thanka to a tip from fellow Seibertronian Sammythecat, we found some in hand images of 2017 SDCC Exclusive Voyager Optimus Prime which is a more movie accurate deco of the Transformers: the Last Knight Voyager Optimus Prime toy. For those who cannot attend the show, he will be sold on Hasbro Toy Shop for $50 once the show is over. These images were found on the Snakas Blog.

The only reason to buy this TLK Optimus is to not already own the normal release. Because appart the weapons, the differences are negligible.

Evenin' Seibertron! Thanks to Facebook'er Harris Ars. tonight we have some new in hand shots of the SDCC 2017 Exclusive Primitive Skateboarding Optimus Prime and Shreddicus Maximus. Aside from the black deco and additional skate boarding goodies, you might recognize him in his previous outfit, Titans Return Powermaster Optimus Prime. See the two side by side, along with Nucleon Quest Super Convoy (which was likely the inspiration for this Exclusive) all below, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com: home for the best Galleries and Conversation around!

There are many, many more paint apps on the exclusive, especially in the arms and legs. Plus he has chest flames and a slightly better (but still too blue) looking head. Overall it's far and a way a better looking figure.

I'm thinking of getting it, but I also feel like a better version could come as a Platinum edition later, but would require me to buy other figures I don't want.

But it's also extra incorrect paint apps without fixing the errors the regular figure has (like that damn blue collar) and the chest flames haven't been done very well at all (and still didn't bother to add them onto the shoulders). I'm much happier with my regular version with some custom paint I've added and awaiting Toyhax to provide awesome flame stickers for chest and shoulders.

I still feel like Hasbro is going to hold back because of Hascon.

I miss when they'd actually have toys as booth freebies vs. the posters they have had recently. Still have Cybertron Skywarp in an old Comic-Con bag somewhere.

BAIT is a company that carries premium apparel, collectibles and other goods has made some Transformers themed vinyl figures and other toys for San Diego Comic-Con. If you will be attending this year you will be able to find these exclusive toys at BAIT's booth, #532.

We have posted some pictures of these neat figures for your viewing pleasure. There are a few different characters available in a G1 style and a set of Medicom plus Bait Megatron Bearbrick. If you'd prefer something a little more traditional, have a look at these images of SDCC 2017 Exclusive TLK Optimus Prime.

But MP 10 is at the TRU booth, no? And thus seen as a TRU exclusive and not a Hasbro SDCC exclusive that can be purchased at the Hasbro table? Not sure what counts as an SDCC exclusive.

Courtesy of OzFormers' griffin, who received the item directly from Hasbro, we have an in-hand pictorial review - in addition to the images we reported here - of the San Diego Comic Con 2017 exclusive Primitive Skateboarding Optimus Prime and Shreddicus Maximus! Check out the images below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!

As noted in a previous post, this will be an exclusive at SDCC next week, for US$50.
Considering the regular retail price of Leader Class Generations toys are currently US$45, this is probably one of the best value SDCC Transformers
toys, for only being $5 more, but having a fancy display box and extra accessories.

Since it is partnering with an actual American skateboarding business, I would be surprised if it shows up in other countries (some SDCC exclusives
do, particularly in Asia, and occasionally in Australia - the last one showing up here was Devastator from the 2013 SDCC).

The box - very nice in black and gold... and the watermark effect on the front and back is actually embossed (textured to the touch), which is also a very nice touch.
The black eyes makes me think of the dead Optimus in the 1980s cartoon (post-movie episodes), and I think the eyes should have been done in grey or gold.


Image

Image


The toy is also black and gold, but under bright light (and camera flash), it looks more like the colour of dark chocolate.

A flip-lid, like you get with several past SDCC exclusives and the Japanese Combiner boxsets. The writing inside the lid is the bio for this toy.
The contents inside the box is the black and gold Leader Class Titans Return Optimus Prime toy, with the regular four weapons and Titanmaster,
plus two ramps, a skate rail, and a hoverboard. Those four extra items all appear to be newly created for this exclusive SDCC set, as they combine
to form a gun for the robot mode of Optimus, and attach to the other two modes in specific ways.
(one of the ramps had come loose in the box)

The tray of toy and accessories. With Optimus packaged in robot mode and the Titanmaster (Shreddicus Maximus) on the hoverboard, the head of
Optimus looks eerie with nothing inside the helmet.


Image

Image


The instruction sheet.
The descriptions listed with the "trick names" on the back don't make much sense, as they don't seem to describe skater actions or tricks.


Image

Image


Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


And the third mode, the base mode, the ramps and skate rail plug into the holes near the trailer wheels, to make it look more like a skate park, but
the ramps just end up hovering in the air.
Which is fine for a hoverboard, but not for a skateboard with wheels on it.

Speaking of skateboards... looks like word of this new skate-park on Cybertron has spread, and a couple have shown up to see if they can drop
in and do some tricks.
Actionmaster Jazz said that he and his turbo-board were too cool for this Primitive skate-park.

Probably not. These are hasbrotoyshop exclusives, and HTS isn't run by Hasbro. So I wouldn't get your hopes up.
