Our very own Leokearon has brought to our attention that MetalHawk and Cloudburst Prime Masters are hitting shelves in Ireland in case anyone was unaware. They were seen and purchased at Ken Black Toys in Wexford, Ireland for €7 each. Leokearon goes on to mention that they also saw Skullgrin but did not purchase him. Transformers Power of the Primes Leader Class Optimus Prime and Rodimus were also available for for €53 at the same store. Here are some pics of the Prime Masters purchased.

Rhinox also appeared in the comics where Galvatronus first met Nova Prime and Alpha Trion. He was a guard back then when the Beastformers fought for equality against the Transformers with mechanical alt modes.

That was what I was referring to, the way Nova Prime moved in on him, I've read IDW mate ;-)

As for Primal being announced for Machima already, despite being a fan of pearlman...I'd completely forgotten it, so, my bad on that one and apologies. :oops:

Though given recent developments within Machima, he might actually get more than five minutes combined screen time... (and probably be defeated by the bad guys by falling over)

Galvatron's former name was Galvatronus in the old days in the IDW comics. ;)
And Arcee is his sister :michaelbay: :HEADHURTS:

According to the Irish SMYTHS site, the deluxes are due to be released some time between the 22nd and 31st January, but no sign of them yet in the Waterford store. of course Ken Black is a spin-off of SMYTHS.

Also I was surprised to see the Prime Masters available given SMYTHS/Ken Black never sold the Titan Masters

I'd say "I suppose I now know how Geewunners feel when a character is recast" but frankly no reimagined Beast Wars character in Animated (Waspinator and Blackarachnia) had their original VA and both were quite good. Maybe it's because, as terrible and as much as I don't care too much about the Machinima shows, that the PotP Optimus Primal figure is functionally intended to be the 'same' character in a way. Or at least same continuity family. Much like G1 Optimus I can't imagine a different voice coming out of that character. Peter Cullen is Prime and Gary Chalk is Primal.

Maybe its just the nostalgia speaking and because I had a faint hope Chalk would get a chance to retake the role decades later much like Cullen retook his place as the voice of Optimus Prime. Especially since I highly doubt we'll ever see Optimus Primal again in any form of animated medium, given how Beast Wars has faded into the background and is clearly not part of Hasbro's intended 'brand image' for Transformers, which is clearly intent on focusing purely on a Generation 1-inspired cast.

Never say never. Been around this brand the entire time, and the one thing I've learned is, anything is possible. Regimes rise and fall everyday.

Keep hope alive, Skirtz. Keep hope alive!

Well they did have the 15th anniversary line, and T30 had a little bit of everything, maybe the 25th will be the big one for BW??

It all depends on the design team.

The current design team doesn't like Beast Wars all that much which is why they completely and intentionally (admitted in interviews) ignored the Beast Wars 20th anniversary.

So they are just ignorant idiots who don't care about what others want like many other people?! :BANG_HEAD:
That's really smart especially if you are working in a huge company that has to provide what people want.
