    Either it be Deluxe or Voyager. The original was awesome enough... imagine if they did him today :) 

    My preference is Voyager.

    I'd prefer having a Gorilla version of Primal. The original BW Optimal Optimus was already a good toy and very screen accurate,

    I use 10th annv. Optimus Primal with my Classics figures. Blends in well with them.

    Titanium Optimal Optimus is actually a pretty good figure all things considered.

    If the Makers did indeed have plans for an updated Optimal Optimus, they had better make it a BIG one, Leader Class at least.

    And we can then expect a Primal Prime Repaint from that one. :p

    Personally, I don't really see the point as the original was great as is for the most part.

    I agree also. The original was pretty much show accurate.

    You're not wrong.

    However, I will wholeheartedly support any Beast Wars inclusion into the modern lines.

    Any Beast era characters in the Classics line better take a number behind Strika, Tankor, Waspinator, Inferno and Rhinox. Fo sho.

    But, yes, voyager Optimal Optimus would be sweet for those of us that never got the original, having completely skipped from G1 to Movie and TFA. *ahem*

    um yea you're better off just releasing the toy, as with most beast wars toys, they are all pretty amazing, and accurate as well.

    besides, it'd just be a deluxe... :lol  which would basically be the titanium version! lol

    If it can turn into a gorilla then its the original. If its a deluxe size and cant turn into a gorilla then its the Titanium.

    I still need Optimal Optimus.

    As much as I love Op Op, if they were to make a modern update, I'd hope for something that improves upon the original, as Op Op kinda phoned it in when it came to having distinct modes.

    Hell yeah. Primal needs more love, and a newer and more improved Optimal Optimus will be most welcome!

    For the love of god have retractable cannons and a knee swivel. Those two things killed the original when I attempted to pose him. :|

    This.

    Fixed cannons were the figure's main weakness, although the poor leg articulation didn't help.

    I'll take any new update on Optimus Primal. Heck any new updates with Maximal, Predacon, or Vehicon logos on them and I'll be happy.
