Transformers Masterpiece Optimus Primal
This die cast metal mace accessory comes in a banana box, which looks awesome. It’s really better than the mace. The mace is so heavy, I don’t think they toy can actually do anything with it. Looks great though.
Optimus Primal comes with a variety of robot and ape face faces.
Ape Mode: Optimus Primal looks awesome in ape mode. There is hardly a bit of kibble showing. He looks like he stepped right out of the Beast Wars cartoon. I wasn’t thrilled when I heard they were doing Beast Wars Masterpiece toys since there are too many G1 toys that still need to be done, but if the upcoming ones are this good, I really can’t complain.
Robot Mode: I’ve installed the battle face plate face since I always hated that he had a mouth. Optimus Primal looks perfect in robot mode. He comes with his swords and has pop out dual cannons on each arm. He also has the flip out shoulder cannons. He was kind of tough to transform. His chest plate needs to flip around and I had a hell of a time getting it to go.
Overall: This is a must for any Beast Wars fan. With Cheetor upcoming, my only concern is that we aren’t going to get the whole team. It would take a lot away to not have Rattrap, Rhinox, and Dinobot, to say nothing of the Predacons.
Thanks for reading!
