Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters toyline is now a very familiar name among the Transformers Fans. It has come a long way since being just a trademark at USPTO.

We’ve been hearing and seeing quite a lot of Toys from the upcoming 3rd Season of Transformers: Prime. But what about Role Play Accessories?

2005 Boards Member hardreturn is bringing us something very cool from Walmart; Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters Optimus Prime Mask.

Priced at US$ 14.92 this new Optimus Prime Mask features a pull-down visor and it appears as though it has replaced his regular Mouthplate. It’s hard to tell at the moment, but again… the color Green is emphasized.

You can take a good look at the new Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters Optimus Prime Mask by clicking on the Image attached with this news post.

...That's kinda badass looking.
ILoveDinobot
ewww, he's got boogers on his face.
Noideaforaname
That's actually kinda interesting how the expression changes with the visor thing being flipped up or down.

Also surprised that these things are evidently profitable enough to keep producing year after year.
NemiMonkey
Odd face sculpt for Prime, but not bad with the visor down. It has an almost alien look that I really dig.
Deadsled
pic's not loading for me.....

of course it pops up as soon as I post this....
Rogzilla
There's that green on Prime again...

Also, this looks like a cross between the previous Prime Prime and BH Prime. Curious.
Dinobot Nuva
The more green on Prime I see the more I'm thinking the synth-en chatter holds some ground.
fallen_revenge
It's looks really cool and menacing. I will try to pick one up just to role play and annoy my whole family
Stygian360
Normally I leave RP accessories on the shelf, but this one... is kinda interesting. May have to snag a set.
puma
because there aren't enough masks already clogging shelves.... this one is the coolest though.
GAUGE
Meh.
Dinodigger97
That looks pretty cool. Might pick one up if they're on sale or something.
megatroptimus
There's one for Bumblebee too. They came out at the same time as all the other BH figures in Canada.
Metroplex79
For customizers, just take the green part, and use it as a new sinister version of the Green Lantern mask.

The small little bit that covers your eyes, isn't much of a disguise....ahem, Robin as well.
Smasher
There's an awful lot of Beast Hunters product for them not to adopt those forms on the show.

Exactly.
Composite Ghost
Now I wish the Voyager Beast Hunter Prime had a mask that could do this.
Calabask
*Yaaaaaaaay! Wowwwwwwweeeeeeee! Look! Another mask to clog the pegs in my local TRU. OMG OMG OMG. So excited. Now it will join the boxed Prime Masks, and will complement the carded Ironman masks and Captain America masks! Can't wait!

That thing just screams Power Rangers.

Sarcasm, just isn't as effective when you have to point it out
AngryChad
Well the figures are a bust, but hopefully the show doesn't start sucking too.
Paxtin
This is actually starting to get me to want to watch season three, just to see if any of this has any relevance to what happens in the show.
Ellamin
ok, I think it's clear, optimus survives through synth-en.
harrismonkey
It'll be interesting to see if they're really overhauling Prime, or if Hasbro just doesn't care.

Recall that with DOTM we got a bunch of heavily redesigned battle versions of existing characters that had almost no relation to them onscreen. I'd been kind of assuming this might be the case with the new versions of old characters we've seen. But somehow this seems even weirder. Time will tell.
CH@OS!
Prime got slimed!
Flexx Ark
The Voyager Beast Hunter Optimus toy should where this mask......
bman29
The more pics turn up make me think Optimus will not have his traditional face plate. Not for me....but I'm sure all the L.A.R.P.'ers will be happy.
Feralstorm
More clear green stuff. It's getting difficult to not think it's significant.
manyoufactsure
Reminds me of Beast Machines Rattrap, even though the face is different. Maybe someday I'll see the prime series.
Autovolt 127
Season 3 needs to have a episode where Optimus Prime gets slimmed by Slimer then Agent Fowler bursts in with a proton pack and crosses the streams.
Ratchets Hatch
Oh joy. More of THESE things that sit and gather dust on shelves.
gothsaurus
Wow. That has some kinda praying mantis mandibles on it. I'm sure the kids are gonna love this stuff... but again, cinches the deal that I'm not buying any of the stuff. Way off base for me as an adult collector.

If you need me, I'll be in the Masterpiece and 3rd party threads.
Lion
The beast wars battle mask gimmicks are being repackaged on BH? Or re-imagined? The concept was cool then, I like it now. Hope it makes it to the toys.
process
That's another one of those perplexing "adult me says it looks silly, but kid me thinks it's frickin' awesome."

It pains me to know you're too young to remember show's that when they ended, had an announcer say "The preceding as brought to you by..."

That or I guess it wasn't that good of a joke. That part I mean. I stand by the rest of the post as comedy gold. Just read it in Tim Curry's post and let it wash over you.
webz
So... Prime, in an effort to fight predacons, puts on a translucent green cockroach mask? WTF?

EVERYTHING about Beast Hunters looks horrible. the regular toys, the dress-up masks... everything... far as I am concerned, Transformers Prime series ended with the Decepticons winning. All Hail Megatron!

Roaches are best suited to survive after a giant disaster. Maybe Prine will be Cocktinus Proach.

Product clogging shelves not withstanding (because you do have a point there), we adult collectors conveniently forget that the core audience are kiddies. Kids like role play, especially around Halloween. We collectors may avoid masks like the plague (or so the voluminous product on shelves proves), but kids do buy them on occasion. Otherwise I doubt they'd make them. Y' think?

I recall as a kid loving to run around the house dressed as my favorite superheroes, so why wouldn't other kids? In other words, chill on the sarcasm- ye who are too cool for school. We get it, you're too good for this stuff.
shroobmaster
I.


I think it.


I think it looks kinda cool.
RedAlert Rescue
Ok so Optimus has stolen Waspinator's face and is wearing it as a trophy then ?

He's back to his old face stealing tricks again I see.

I just get annoyed when I see something that I know is going to sit, and clog pegs. Like the DOTM bash bots. Though I'll admit some of that isn't Hasbros fault so much as it is retailers refusing to accept that something isn't going to move(TRU unleashing like four boxes of the last wave of DoTM deludes this Christmas was just sadistic.). That and I've been more jaded and a hath as of late, admittedly and it's bleeding through in unintentional spaces like here. That said, if I had a kid, I'd admittedly likely buy one of these for him, and one for myself to run around with him.
Epsilon
Awesome for the kiddies, but not for me. I just can't get on board with all that green; that and I'm not entirely sold on the new face sculpt. I'm waiting till season 3 to see if the new designs will grow on me. Till then, this is an easy pass.

I'd like to think of it more like Optimus has been recruited into the cult of Waspinator. Waspinator always did say that he hazzzzzz plannnnzzzzz.

You know what they say about green!
Puck Hockey
Jeez, all this mysterious build up! What the HELL happens to Optimus' face in season 3?

Movie Prime intrudes and takes his own face.
Prime Jetscream
...Whoooaaa... I actually kinda want it.
But it doesn't exactly look like the toy's face. Strange...
Bumblethumper
Looks a bit like a gorilla with sideburns. I wonder if that was deliberate, in keeping with the beast theme.

The face is really so different, I almost wouldn't be surprised if they've changed voice actors.
Blasterpill
Help. Prime looks like an alien. Gotta go to walmart sometime soon.
Galvatron Rage
That is a really unexpected and unusual look for Optimus (assuming it's show-accurate).

I gotta give 'em kudos for changing it up!
