Beast Mode: Optimus Primal’s beast mode is fine, but it never wowed me.
Robot Mode: But his robot mode is awesome. I love the red and blue homage to Optimus Prime. He has all kinds of accessories, swords, missiles, and that awesome mace. He has a much lighter shade of blue than the original toy.
Overall: Beast Wars may not be G1 (what is?), but it has some great toys. If you have an original Optimus Primal, you probably don’t need the reissue, but if you don’t, this is a great opportunity to get it considerably cheaper than a MOC original.
