Seibertron.com is currently at a Transformers themed dinner and we are finally getting the reveals promised to us in the preview images. Below you will see Power of the Primes Hun-Gurrr, Moonracer, Rippersnapper and Optimus Primal / Optimal Optimus. This last one is very confusing since while there are drawings and designs of the deluxe Primal figure appearing as a gorilla, the grey models instead show that deluxe Optimus Primal turns into a cosmic surfboard for Optimal Optimius to ride on. Another unclear aspect is the amount of modes Optimal Optimus will have. The drawings show him in vehicle modes while the grey models only have him in robot and beast mode (along with surfing beast mode). Another odd detail is that Hun-Gurr sports a decepticon mask, but that may just be a placeholder. Notice that he also has gauntlets/armour made up of the combiner feet.

Enjoy and stay tuned for more Hascon coverage throughout tomorrow!

Hun-Gurrr was TarnRollerGlitch all along, of course!

Optimal Optimus, maybe, but not Optimus Primal. I foresee a lot of people being ticked off that he turns into a random long cybertronian transport ship rather than a gorilla. I also foresee a lot of people making fun of the fact that its because John Warden designed him and he is allergic to beast wars.

Terrorcons look great. Curious now if people are regretting voting for primal as that's dreadful looking.

Isn't Optimus Primal doing the evolution gimmick, so he will be a monkey and Optimal Optimus?

Terrorcons are a buy, of course, but I have to wait until TT says whether the UW series is coming back.
I was wondering how Moonracer was going to be put into plastic, because her G1 animation alt mode is the absolute worst, but I have to say, I like this!

The space log quasar surfer mode is definitely an odd choice, but at the same time I like it. Maybe because it's hilarious?!

Man though! That Gorilla mode looks cool and the combined Optimal mode is outstanding. Love that they kept those big clunky robo hands.

He looks good and interesting, and I'm ok with his funkyness, 'cause I already/still have the other Primal toys.

Hun-Garrrrrrrr and Rippersnapper look DOPE TOO!
Gonna be another exciting year ahead.

Yay Moonracer! Who seems to share engineering with RID Sideswipe of all things.

Y'all think the cockpit in the space log is TM/PM pilotable?

That will be cool. 8-)

I'd certainly count on it. Legends-Class Beachcomber and Slash have already shown that the TM/PM pilot feature is still in the line -- we just haven't seen it in anything other than Legends yet. I'd bet on it not being in Voyagers and Deluxes due to them needing to do the Combining gimmick; but it seems like there'd be nothing preventing the Leaders from having it.

Hun-Grr looks like his torso is facing backwards. I'm guessing this was on purpose, along with his face being obscured.

Not some random long Cybertronian transport, but the cockpit for the Optimal Optimus vehicle forms. I guess that fits with the trailer thing the others have...

Looking at it now for the third time. It looks like there is already some junk in there. Looks like it could be something Matrix shaped though, so maybe it pops out ant a TM/PM can drive.

Funny story, after I moved and was setting up my collection, I flipped out because one of my vintage Diaclone pilots was missing. Months later by the time I got to unpacking all my Beast Wars guys, I found him in Optimal's cockpit! :lol:

Also just thinking the surf ship is a neat nod to the whole "evolution" idea because it encompasses all 3 of Primal main iterations. Transmetal Primal was the surfer dude.

I think Hun-Gurrr might be a retool of silverbolt, mainly due to the way the arms and legs work.

One day people will realise that Combiner Wars' level of mold-sharing was a one-off and that not everything is a retool or redeco. One day...

>:oP Well it looks like we wont be getting an Primal that actually turns into a gorilla. Dont get me wrong I like the leader figures but the combined modes not so much. For me the gem of the Leader class line is G1 sunbow Orion Pax. Now im loving them Terrorcons much more than the dinobots.

Yes, when you look at the renders, it was the only logical choice according the constraints of the line.
Same as Orion which has an Optimus truck alt mode.
It doesn't bother me a lot, we already had a good recent Monkey-Primal with the BW anniversary/cybertron one, this new one is the perfect opportunity to finally get a cybertronian Primal other than the unaffordable 2006 botcon one.


So, if the renders are accurate, it means he can be :

- small Primal, transforming to shuttle.
- Monkey riding the shuttle as surf (like TM Primal)
- Monkey with Armored backpack
- Independant Monkey which can be played with even without the small Primal (contrary to Optimus and Rodimus trailers which are only trailer)
- Optimal Optimus
- Optimal Optimus with his flying mode.

Seriously, this is so ridiculously awesome. I was hyped by Optimus and Hotrod, but Optimal Optimus just made them obsolete.
Tell me we can put a TM in his cockpit and my nose will bleed.


I remember how I was so disapointed by what they showed to the SDCC. (retools of CW etc). Things have changed.
