It was revealed over a week ago that San Diego Comic-Con 2018 would be showing some "Beast Wars" love via their release of Optimal Optimus in a new deco with the "Throne of the Primes". Now thanks to HasbroToyShop we have a official listing and photos of this set! The set is listed at $69.99.

Toy News: Possible SDCC exclusive Optimus Primal revealed

A surprise post on Baidu appears to show a possible SDCC exclusive Optimus Primal figure! This redeco of "Power of the Primes" Optimus Primal using Optimus Prime's original black/white/red color scheme! Optimus sits on the "Throne of the Primes" and it appears he comes with what could be the "final" three Prime Masters that have not been released at retail. Also included is a mace that seems to double as a scepter and a homage to Transmetal Optimus Primal's mace weapons.

BWTF Classic Review: "Beast Wars Transformers" Ultra Class Optimus Primal

Optimus Primal was introduced in 1996 and over the years the character has remained in Transformers lore in various forms.

In anticipation of this, BWTF jumps back in time to take a look at the original Ultra Class figure. Check out my restored review with new comments and photos!
