Thanks to a heads up from Seibertronians Starrhero and Kanrabat, we have news that Baltmatrix has uploaded his review of Power of the Primes Optimus Primal! This is our first English review of the figure, and Balt takes a detailed look into both Optimus Primal and his Optimus Optimus form. The individual Primal mode to him was pretty good, and the "skateboard" mode just makes him laugh a lot. But overall, Baltmatrix rated the figure a pretty decent one, and the gimmick overall a winner.

So what do you think? Is this fan vote figure the figure you wanted? Is this figure good enough for you to pick up? Let us know what you think in the comments section below! And keep an eye to the online stores and the brick and mortar store shelves, as we should be expecting him to come out here in the next few months ahead!

Okay..... This is what the majority of you voted for???! $45+ is the going rate for that....? :SICK:


As cheap and lazy as Hasbro has been with these Leader Class figures in this line, I'm kinda glad Deathsaurus didn't win.


Either way this thing is a pass!

We voted for the character, there was no knowledge of the gimmick or what the figure would end as. Stop blaming it on the character (or serie) choice, it would have been almost as bad for everyone except maybe Star Saber. And even then people would still whine about the parts lacking articulation or the hollow pieces which are universal to all mass retail figures.

That said he's not the worst thing ever. His two robot modes are pretty great.

You know that.
I know that.
But there's 2 or 3 people that still don't give a shit and can't stop themselves from continuously correcting people.

Opinons = facts.
That's part of internet culture. Go to 4 chan's /toy/ board to see this in full effect! :lol:

Optimal Optimus repainted as Oilmaster.... That's one something-or-other-exclusive that beg to be made. :-?

Well damn, now I'm kinda sad knowing that'll definitely never happen (even though the other two Leader molds have black Decepticon repaints). Heck, I'd be happy with the Optimus Prime version, too.

Paint Primal white with blue highlights, especially the face, paint Optimal red white and blue with the blast shields instructed to be on the shoulders as the official transformation for shoulder pads, call him Magnificent Magnus, or Magnified Magnus, and take my money.

A Singaporean posted theses on the 4chan /toy/ board in the TFG thread. He knocked out the pin that link Primal's spaceship-backpack in place. This create a separate "yoga pose only" Primal and a separate vehicle. The lone Primal can now interact with a much better looking Optimal Optimus, both in bot and gorilla mode. Also, the spaceship and surfboard modes still work thanks to all the pegs that lock everything in place. This is a BRILLIANT idea that make me want that toy even more! ;)^








What do you guys think?

Awesome. Thats pretty much what I had planned all along. Now time for a 3rd party company to swoop in and do an add-on kit to make Primal an ape alt-mode.

It seems to me that the design team did the least amount of work on the gimmick for it to be take apart just like that. But then again, there is a bias against beast wars so I shouldn't be surprised.
