Throne, not munkky! Out of left field entirely, a post on Chinese social media platform Baidu seems to reveal another end of line cap figure for Transformers Power of the Primes and Prime Wars trilogy overall - a version of Optimal Optimus with three accessories: a throne, a crown, a sceptre/mace. The name of the set? Throne of the Primes.

Also worth noting is the redeco of the figure, switching the Optimal Optimus colours for the red, black and white of the Optimus Primal version of the character while still using the bigger body. You can check out the image below for yourselves, and let us know what you think of it in the Energon Pub! Might this be a San Diego Comic Con exclusive, or something else entirely?

Are those Prime Masters in the throne there?

Also I have to give it to them, that looks nice. I'm not so sure I care much for Primal (as cool as the redeco is I just can't get behind that mold) but the throne looks kinda awesome and those accessories rock.

I think they are meant to be prime masters, but not actually prime masters. My worry is what the throne is actually made of but considering the colours on him are more subdued, I actually quite like him! Need to see more pictures though.

I'll hold on for the regular Optimal Optimus then. This Throne version look VERY interesting.

It doesn't include a crown. That is the Optimal Optimus head repainted in gold with the face pained black and silver.

Dude the head shape is different, if it's not a crown accessory it's a retool.

Nevermind, I think you are right. I have the images side-by-side now. It does appear to be an accessory.

Ha! It's the Monkey King!

I was on the fence with the first version because it seemed like it was neither different enough from the original or improved enough from the original to 'bring' anything to my collection.

This definitely fulfills the 'different' aspect though!

That's why I think this is the version I'm gonna get. It feel more like "Primal super mode" and I like it. I also preffer these colors way more than the gaudy blue and orange. Maybe because I have zero attachment to the original Optimal Optimus.

If I get it, I'm not sure if I'll knock off the pin to separate "action master Primal" from his spaceship backpack. Because this time, it really look like a super mode of the exact same character. Plus it may be an expensive something-or-other exclusive.

Throne looks to be made cardboard doesn’t look plastic looking at detail of top throne

Yup. I bet the throne is indeed made out of cardboard. Either as part of the box, or you can pull it out like a Studio Series background. But yeh, probabilities of a pure cardboard throne is very high.

That's exactly what I was worried about, still the rest of the set makes up for it.

So any takers on how much this set will be? ;-) exclusive or not this is going to be costly.

I wonder how much of that throne is plastic and not just part of the packaging made of cardboard. The crown really has to be an accessory because I doubt it would fit in Optimus Primal's standard modes. His scepter has an awful lot of hinges and the bottom half is definitely a gun. The things on the bottom right look like cards. His right hand is yellow for some reason or there's something yellow in his hand. With this all of the PotP Leaders have had black repaints. I wonder if could be another Amazon exclusive considering all the new parts like Nemesis Prime got?

Did anyone else notice that rope detailing over the R on the transformers logo on the side. On the other hand, I really hope this isn't some super expensive, super hard to find exclusive because it's awesome.

Interested! But I could totally see this being our 3rd and final SDCC figure. 3 would not be unheard of.

Yeah, something like this has got to be the stuff of SDCC. There's no way we'd get something like this as a standard retail item from this Hasbro brand team.

This Primal set is so weird. But also kinda cool.
Is it a reference to something specific? I haven't been watching the Machinima show, is it in reference to that?

I do kinda like the strange Jungle Book nod, but I would think Primal already has plenty of the man's red flower.
You know, with his breast blasters and all.

Pretty sure it's a vine, part of a ruined, jungle temple motif. It looks like there're vines or branches on on the top window of the package as well. Continuing to use the Maximal symbol seems odd, but I guess its just consistent branding.

Also, what has been seen cannot be unseen.

Nope. The show uses the normal toy's orange deco.

If anything, this set makes me think of the Power of the Primes fan vote for the next Prime, in which Optimus Primal's bio referred to him as the "king of Eukaris", a concept which has yet to seen in anything at all.
