    I was looking through BBTS and saw a picture of the US release of Optimus Primal for preorder, he looked much more cybernetic than the Japanese version. It looked like they completely remolded the toy, where as the Japanese version was a slight remold to better resemble the TV show.

    Does anyone know if they will be releasing one in the US closer to the Japanese release? or are we only going to get this complete remold?

    You can see a picture here.

    Thanks

    thats the only one we're getting here doesnt seem very 10th anniversary to me, but still a fun lookin mold, and megatron looks scary...i like that....the other one is a japanese exclusive, though hasbro should steal the idea, and release the molds here in a 40 dollar gift set....cuz they look amazing...and have sold out everywhere ive seen....

    We're not getting a "remold", we're getting an all new figure. Same with the 10th megs.

    New figure with enough differences that it can be a totally new character, but enough homage in it that it can be considered an old figure updated.

    We should probably take that pic down, it's linked directly from BBTS...

    Well, some of the online store listings say May, but I'm starting to doubt that since we still haven't seen in-package pics of them yet...

    Both of the new 10th moulds seem to be getting mixed opinions... but I am nuts for these. The original Primal gorilla mould is easily one of my all time favs and I am stoked to see a reinterpretation of it.

    Megatron looks even better. ;)

    I like the Megatron but think the Primal looks like absolute ass.
