    me too mainly because theres no wheels on the bottom.
    Im just glad theres no acual gimick on the figure itself because it usually takes away from the mold

    I just got this guy today on clearance at Target for $5 (woo!)... gotta say... he doesn't suck, but I don't really understand the love for him. To each his own, I guess.

    Question though. Who/what is this toy's place in Beast Wars? It's not Optimus Primal as we saw in the show, nor is it his Transmetal, and it's certainly not Optimal Optimus... I'm confused.

    The Cyb. Optimus??
    It isn't in Beast Wars, its story is while Cyb. Optimus was on Jungle Planet, he got mutated by the Cyber Key into a monkey.

    It's not cannon. Just a stupid story that hasbro made up for the figure, it has no real ties to the show at all, and completly contradicts all of Cybertrons story.

    BWX Primal is AWESOME. One of my favourite ever figures. I think he's supposed to be a "Universe" style Optimus that was revived after the end of Beast Machines to continue battling Megatron or something.

    I was never a huge fan of BWX Primal. He's not terrible, but he's not great either. He's merely OK, as far I'm concerned. BWX Megatron, though, ispretty badass. He's got his proportion problems and all, but I love him. Love the T-Rex mode...

    The BWX ones I think are explained as being Optimus and Megatron post-Beast Machines, as their fight transcends their physical existances and they crash through space and time, or something.

    For the Cybertron Optimus, I dubbed him "Feral Convoy", and had him be the former leader of the Jungle Planet before Flame Convoy (Scourge) rose to power. Basically, he's the fourth Convoy, looking to recover his throne, but limited by the fact he can't harness the power of the Force Chips himself - hence he convinced Backpack to build him a bazooka that doubles as a hoverboard that allows him to overcome this weakness.

    Cybertron Megatron I named Predacon, he's just another follower of Flame Convoy, having been banished from Cybertron and making his way to the Jungle Planet for performing illegal experiments during Armada (see Armada Predacon's bio). He thinks by supporting Flame Convoy and through him the Decepticons he might gain a pardon from Megatron.
