    No offence, but this figure almost makes me glad Terrorsaur died before he got a Transmetal body(or did he?). Looking back on it the TM designs were some of my least favourites of the Beast Era.

    haha, that made me laugh. IMO TM's were amazing. TM Rhinox is my top Beast era bot, he's such badass. But then my next fave is BM O.Primal so I'm used to being in the minority.

    I'm super late to the game. What is POTP Deluxe Primal's alt mode? I've been trying to catch up with you guys but I'm so confused. I thought he was a gorilla and his trailer was a surf board and then they combine to make Optimal Optimus.

    I hope MP Dinobot comes with these accessories... Or at least I hope Dr. Wu is there to save the day lol

    I saw those too. I REALLY wanted to get them. But no way, not for $100 USD.

    POTP Primal is basically Optimal Optimus.
    But the smaller robot turns into a space bread truck/shoebox/carton of smokes/brick with jets/not a smol monkey. It's going to be great. I'll have something in my collection I'm more ashamed of than my Universe Cheetor.

    haha, I like the analogies. I've definitely missed something, @Primal Sabbath are you trying to tell me that the crap surfboard thing is Deluxe Optimus Primal? I thought the monkey was OP and the matrix driven lifeboat-shuttle gives him some armor and stuff to turn him Optimal. Isn't that just two separate toys then? what does the gorilla turn into? I'm so confused :confused:

    The "trailer" is the mechanical gorilla and the "Deluxe" Primal is the "surf board". (he's essentially Optimal Optimus' beast mode back kibble made removable)

    do we know if the gorilla turns into anything? I'm guessing a big box to make the surfboard become a space lorry with no wheels

    You can see it and make your own mind up here.
    HASCON 2017 - Awards Dinner Panel Reveals - Transformers News - TFW2005

    Basically the season 1 Primal (in addition to his robot mode) has some sort of transport/Space freighter mode as well as doubling up as a backpack or surfboard for Optimal Optimus, there is no season 1 gorilla mode as far as we can tell. The rest of the toy is Op Op(minus backpack/chest). It's a compromise for sure and not everyone's cup of tea but the Op Op mode looks good.

    The gorilla turns into the main body of the Optimal Optimus robot mode. You can probably arrange the two together and straighten out the wings for the "Air Guardian" mode of the original toy and was featured so much in the show, but that's it. (other than have the gorilla ride the "surf board" as a nod to Transmetal Opitmus)

    OK. I get it now. I guess I assumed the opposite (Robot = gorilla, Box = 'Trailer'). OK, I'll wait for the release to make my mind up but its no longer a must have. The Optimal Optimus does look good though. I hope he becomes Prime in some of the fiction too.

    Up-scale, Up-scale!!
    That doesn’t look too bad but I’m pretty satisfied with what I’ve already got. Shared it in the Dinobot thread awhile ago but may as well bust it out again

    Not as screen accurate but still pretty sexy

    Could we forgive Primals alt mode more if there was a tiny Rhinox inside the cockpit, screaming?
