Amazon has added the finalized stock photos to their listing for Power of The Primes Optimal Optimus, the final new Leader mold coming our way in the current iteration of Generations. Optimus Primal was the winning character when Hasbro asked the community to vote for a new leader character last year, and we got our first glimpse at the design work during the first HasCon event in Rhode Island. While much of what the toy can do is shown in the newest round of stock photos, the actual flight mode is still omitted, so far only having been confirmed through TakaraTomy photography. Also omitted are some critical paint operations on Optimus Primal's face, unfortunately. You can see that and more in the gallery below!
reports that Garry Chalk,
voice actor of Optimus Primal (Beast Wars, Beast Machines
) and Optimus Prime(Transformers: Armada, Transformers: Energon, Transformers: Cybertron
) will be making an appearance at the convention this year! Chalk will be at the con for the entire weekend, attending Q&A panels and holding autograph sessions. Keep reading for details!
Loopaza Mega Store
has posted this month's scans from Figure King (Figure-Oh
) magazine, and they provide possibly the best look we've yet had at Power of the Primes
Optimal Optimus! (It also reinforces the idea that the lower half of his faceplate will probably not be painted on the final version of the toy, something that is going to bother us basically forever.
Also on tap are images of Elita-Inf1nite and a shot of Abominus arranged G1 style - that is, with the flattest panels of the Terrorcons facing forward, and no elbows. Keep reading to see all that and more!
Thanks to Weibo user NOTRAB. We have look at the Transformers Power of the Primes Optimal Optimus figure. The Beast Wars Maximal Transmetals II design figure is finally seen out of package. Giving us a look at what the final production edition will look like. Read on to see the figure out of the box in his robot, ape, and jet modes after the jump.
has listed all of August's Power of the Primes
releases for Japan with new stock photos! Beyond decent galleries for each of the Terrorcons, there's also some photos of PP-27 Leader Class Optimal Optimus that confirm that he can indeed assume the Flight Mode of the original toy! Definitely reassuring given that even his package only shows a biped-to-biped transformation. The photos also give us a preview of September's TakaraTomy releases by revealing the identity of PP-28. Keep reading to find out!
The usual Weibo leaker has posted some packaging images for Power of the Primes
wave 3! Perhaps most noteworthy is Titan Class Predaking, though we also get package front and back photos for Leader Class Optimal Optimus Primal as well as images for Deluxe Novastar and Prime Masters Bludeon, Octopunch, and Bomb-Burst! Keep reading to see.
Wonderfest is happening in Japan right now. The one day event falls just hours after the first day of Toy fair in New York, and on the Transformers side, and consistent with our earlier speculation
much the same lineup of products were on display, albeit with subtle differences. Unfortunately in Power of The Primes those differences are limited to the state of finish of the various items shown, rather than things like actual deco choices. For instance, grey prototypes of Optimal Optimus and Predaking versus color versions. Click through to see these and more!
The Transformers Facebook has also provided promotional images of most of the rest of Power of the Primes
! Titan Class Predaking and Optimal Optimus are the real stars here, with Wave 4's sole new Deluxe Novastar also making an appearance. Keep reading to see the images!
ENI is on the ground at Toy Fair 2018! We are current waiting on the Hasbro product team to begin their New Products preview that is sure to include news about Transformers and much more.
Stay tuned for updates as they happen from the event. Keep checking back, we will be posting updates and images as soon as they are available.
Perfect Effect posted to Facebook to reveal a new deco for their Gorira Jr partner figures designed as weapon accessories for Beast Gorira, the unofficial Optimal Optimus they released previously. Though not closely color-matching, these are shown paired with the Primal Prime redeco of Beast Gorira, and apart from deco seem otherwise unchanged. Plus perhaps simply hoping to confirm expectations, Perfect Effect has confirmed upcoming Perfect Combiner releases will be focused on Power of The Primes. If you've been hoping for upgrades to improve the Dinobots' combined Volcanicus form, you may be in luck soon enough. Keep reading to see the Gorira Jr photos!
It's that time again: New York Comic-Con is over, and so now it's time to go over what exactly we know about the figures in next year's Generations line, Power of the Primes
. At this point, it's quite a lot! Some blanks were filled in at NYCC, some leaks confirmed, and even a couple minor surprises as to the nature of the Deluxe and Voyager accessories. Keep reading to see it all!
Back in July after SDCC,
we published a quick... well, Prime
r on the upcoming Generations line Power of the Primes.
In the wake of HasCon 2017 we've got some more information, so it's time to go back through and lay it all out, class by class. Keep reading to see!
Gorira Prime might sound like a likely name for a planet in some B-grade sci-fi, but in fact it's another upcoming Perfect Effect product. This is a redeco of Beast Gorira taking after the redeco of the real Optimal Optimus: Primal Prime. Look, it was the year 2000, we didn't have as many names to choose from in those days. Don't judge. Gorira Prime is expected to be released in November. No pricing information was officially released, but it can be expected to follow suit with Beast Gorira. Click through to check out the promo renders.
It looks like the unofficial Optimal Optimus will have an opponent in the near future. On Facebook, Perfect Effect has released the first tease for a new entry in their Perfect Beast series, a silhouette-style CG render of what is unmistakably Transmetal 2 Megatron. Even in this state it's clear the design has been passed through the Perfect Effect stylizing filter, which may or may not work for some collectors. And don't be surprised to see at least an additional blue version be announced before too long, too... Keep reading to see the full size image.
