Blog #2077: Toy Review: Transformers: Beast Wars: Ultra Class Optimus Primal

Transformers: Kingdom: Ultra Class Optimus Primal

Optimus Primal

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.

About lmb3

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
