    Can anyone who has them post pics of any/all versions of Primal with other versions of himself? hoping to see comparisons among them, trying to pick just the right one. For the record, my main maximals are Universe 2.0 Dinobot, TM Rhinox, Rattrap, and Cheetor (foxkids color) for anyone who wants to make recommendations as to which one would be the best Primal.

    Also have Silverbolt, Depthcharge, and TM Airazor, planning on getting TM BA, original Tigatron, and Tigerhawk

    Just get Optimal Optimus. He's miles better than any other version of the character.

    What he said, I got the BW basic Bat Primal, the Ultra season one Primal, the TM Primal, Optimal Optimus, the Beast Machines deluxe Primal, and the mega class BM Primal.

    Out of all of them, Optimal Optimus is the best of the bunch.

    How is the TM Primal? I know the general consensus so far is Optimal Optimus, but I need Megs, and they came in a Japanese 2 pack with each other.

    Anyone have side by side pictures of any of these?

    From that Wiki link I found the following:

    Optimus Primal - Ultra - Beast Wars
    Optimus Primal - Ultra - Robot Masters
    Optimus Primal - Ultra - Beast Wars 10th Anniversary
    Optimus Primal - Ultra - Beast Wars Reborn 2 Pack
    Optimus Primal - Ultra - Telemocha Series
    Optimus Primal - Ultra - DX Convoy

    Are these all the different versions?

    The problem I have is that they all state they are all either Ultra or retools of the Ultra but I have seen 2 different sizes of Optimus Primal and I don't see which one is the bigger version and that link doesn't say which one's are US vs Asian versions. I assume the DX and Telemocho and the Reborn are all Asian version. Is there both a US and Asian versions of any of these?

    Pretty cool. I love transmetals, with their weird third modes, mostly because they don't feel like 3rd modes, they feel like an extension of the alt mode, like they moved teir parts around to do it. I love that. Not sure if i dig a surfing monkey though.

    I would go for the robot masters/ telemocha mold or optimal optimus. Tm is a good toy but it the worst design from the series. The surfing monkey is not as good as optimal optimus tank and flight mode.

    The 3 versions I have are the telamocha Optimus Primal from 2007, TM Optimus , and of course the Optimal Optimus. Of the 3, my favorite is the TM version. Love the color blue, an the duel over the shoulders Cannons. Jus my opinion of course..

    There was no TM2 Optimus. Optimal Optimus is just an upgraded form of his original TM version. He's just carrying the spark of the G1 prime within him.

    I have no comparison shots with various Primal figures, but I always favour the original Ultra mould Optimus Primal.

    Having said that, you seem to have some Transmetal figures (I love them myself :) ) Not sure how orginal Primal looks with them.

    The original Ultra BW Optimus Primal has Black colour/No Mouth Faceplate.

    Robot Masters didn't have an Ultra class so that can be crossed off. It was only deluxe.

    This is certainly the most accurate Ultra class figure available from the U.S. HTF btw, as I'm still trying to get this figure...and it's pricey. This guy is Grey colour/faceplate with a mouth. Highly Recommend getting this figure.

    This is essentially the same as the 10th anniversary version above, but available in Japan. Much nicer packaging than its U.S counterpart. VHTF.

    There was 2 figures in the Japanese Telemocha series. One a Deluxe and the other a Ultra, which is described below. The Telemocha Deluxe Optimus Primal is based on the Robot Masters version and it is one of the most show accurate in terms of appearance and how he compares size-wise to other toys - Robot Masters was detailed, Telemocha's was more detailed....Highly recommend getting this figure.

    AKA TM SP-DX Convoy from the Telemocha line. Toy wise, this is the same figure as the original Ultra BW Optimus Primal, but it has show accurate colours and more detailed. This has a similar head as the original too, mouthless faceplate.
