Toy News: Hasbro Pulse Reveals Takara Tomy Edition "Rise of the Beasts" Optimus Primal


In a surprise reveal, Hasbro Pulse has posted a listing for a previously unannounced Optimus Primal figure from Rise of the Beasts!  More so than perhaps any (transformable) figure revealed and released to date, this figure appears to be very screen accurate, featuring details in both modes seen in the movie trailers.  This figure is being billed as the "Takara Tomy Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Optimus Primal" indicating the figure will not be widely available outside Japan.  At the moment Hasbro Pulse appears to be the only online venue taking preorders and the irony of the name is that Takara Tomy itself has yet to reveal this figure. 

Optimus Primal is $59.99 USD and is due to ship October 15, 2023.  Given the price point, it is likely this is a Leader Class figure.  Unfortunately preorders sold out in about 20 minutes so keep an eye on the listing to see if more preorders are put up.  For now, enjoy the product information and images below.

Update with sponsor/affiliate links: BigBadToyStore and Entertainment Earth have both posted listings for this item.  Note: neither site has posted images yet, but based on the descriptions I believe these are the same item posted on Pulse earlier.  On Entertainment Earth, be sure to use code FREESHIP59 to get free shipping!
