Review of Prime Masters: Prime Masters are heads without faces. They can be carried by deluxe toys like a baby in a harness. What they should have done is created a face with a piece that could be flipped over to reveal the logo similar to the face designs of some G1 Headmasters, so you could either use him as a head or as a logo.
Nexus Prime, Prima Prime, Amalgamous Prime, The Thirteenth
Vehicle Mode: Optimal Optimus’s jet mode is okay. It’s not great, it’s not terrible, but then, it was never his best mode anyway.
Beast Mode: He looks pretty great in beast mode. He’s got a great paint job, and I really like his ape head sculpt.
Small Robot Mode: And here we have the smaller Optimus Primal, who looks great. I love his head sculpt, and his paintjob is perfect.
Large Robot Mode: Optimal Optimus looks awesome, though they should have just called him Optimus Primal for obvious reasons. The crown and scepter are pretty cool, but it’s kind of hard to get the Prime Masters out of the scepter.
Overall: You may have noticed I didn’t review the throne. The thrown is mostly cardboard with some plastic. The wheel you can put the Prime Masters into is the same kind of plastic as the trays toys are packed in. It’s very cheap and wasn’t worth taking pictures of. Overall, this is a very cool toy, but I’m looking forward to get the retail version that’s in the right colors.
