Blog #2362: Toy Review: Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Beast Combiner Optimus Primal & Skullcruncher

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Beast Combiner Optimus Primal & Skullcruncher

Similar to Cyberverse Spark Armor toys, Beast Combiners pair a figure between Scout and Deluxe sized with an animal partner that becomes armor and weapons.


What logic is there to have Optimus Primal combine with a Decepticon? This makes no sense. Anyway. Skullcruncher looks really great. His colors are perfect, and he’s got amazing molded detail.

Optimus Primal

Optimus Primal is okay. There are far better Optimus Primals in the line. Not terrible though.

Optimus Primal Combined with Skullcruncher

Optimus Primal and Skullcruncher look pretty good considering they make no sense. I don’t love the Optimus Primal face, but otherwise he’s pretty good.

Overall: This one might be worth picking up just for Skullcruncher, but it’s not a must have.

Thanks for reading!
