Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Weaponizers and Cyberverse Commander Optimus Prime

By way of some online store listings and an early image posted on our fellow fansite Fullmetalhero, we've got some more news of new toys coming your way next year as a part of the Transformers Prime Beast Hunters series. First things first, that early look image - what you're looking at is the first picture of an all-new Beast Hunters Cyberverse Commander Optimus Prime. The new Optimus design is a bulkier, brawnier look with elements of the War / Fall of Cybertron design worked in, particularly the "wings" on the back with the wheels on.

Secondly, by way of new solicits at online store Kapow Toys, we can confirm that the "Ultra" scaled Weaponizers will be returning for Beast Hunters. Moreover, three Weaponizers are listed - Optimus Prime and Bumblebee are there, presumably remolds / redecos of the existing Weaponizers, and making his debut in this size class is Ultra Magnus. With the big guy getting his third toy in the Prime line, what do you think his odds of showing up in the series are?

Of course, new toys are no confirmation of the direction the fiction might take - but it's a good gauge of what we might want to start saving some money up for once these start hitting! Those Beast Hunters Weaponizers are due in February 2013 according to the listings, so we hopefully will not need to wait long to see more of them.

Wow. More than a simple remold, that's a brand new design. Maybe Optimus Prime is badly damaged and gets an upgrade.

Indeed. Reminds me of his WFC body.

All the same, this suggests his Weaponizer toy will be new.
Heat Guy
Sweet.

So Optimus Prime comes back? Colour me shocked and surprised. After the trauma of the '86 movie we will never see Optimus Prime permanently die on screen ever again.
jackgaughan
Oh, Oh, That's looks good, oh that's Sublime, godlike even, really good looking, I want it. Now, unless it's like FOC Optimus, looks good, but really isn't. Let's hope the voyager looks just as good.
Nemesis251
Looks good! Reminds me of the Monster Truck design that was made for Armada but didn't get used. Now I hope a voyager pic gets released next.
Gryph
Digging it hardcore.
General Tekno
Remember too, that a) this is a CYBERVERSE toy and b) we have an unrevealed Voyager still in Wave 1.

Assuming this is the unrevealed Voyager, if it translates well it could be pretty awesome.
bellpeppers
Looks better than what is current.
Maybe Optimus won't be as much of a pussy in S3.
shroobmaster
That looks horrible. Hopefully toy-only thing or if not, better looking in the actual CGI model.
miscreant
I look forward to it be released next Spring as a Voyager, with the exact same weapon as the RID Voyager Prime, and shelfwarming for 8 months plus like RID Voyager Optimus.
Valkysas
I think it looks like an awesome design, considering the cyberverse limitations.

I really can't wait to see what the bigger versions look like, and I really hope the powerizer gimmick is gone.
Murasame
Cool! Maybe I'll get this, once it's released. Actually I was only planning on getting G1 legends figures (except for Cyberverse Arcee and Cyberverse Vehicon that I got), but this design actually looks cool!
Aptom
No weaponizer megatron? Crap

yeah, i agree, the case distribution of the PRID voyagers has been terrible. can't find any Dreadwings, Thundetrons, or Ultra Magnuses (is that the proper plural form of Magnus?) because Prime and Starscream are shelfwarming so horribly. and the shelf space is further cramped up by Optimus Maximus, the battling rc cars, and the Botshots 4 pack

Dear Hasbro: Optimus does not have to be in every single bloody wave of product. You are allowed to sell other toys.
Stardust262
Reminds me somewhat of Armada Optimus' design.
PcPrime23
We need a weaponizer Megatron. Not another weaponizer Bee! But that Cyberverse Optimus looks cool.

exactly. allthough the Ultra Magnus sounds like it might be cool
Bumblebee makes no bloody sense in this size class. Megatron, or Unicron please hasbro? Predaking is a good start though

This may be only for the toyline and not for the show. After all they did say at the NYCC that many aspects from the toyline won't be on the show at all so this will likely be the same for Optimus.

That said this is an awesome design and I can totally see this as a poteintal repaint of RID Scourge/Nemesis Prime work so well with it.
bignick1693
I want to see the alt mode too. It looks like he might be a flat nose cab.
Murasame
I love how the thread is called

That would be me going "the fact he has a new design kinda confirms he's back, which is a spoiler."

I've got a lot of people I know online who are generally adverse to spoilers of any kind.
Smasher
I really like it.
It looks aggressive and powerful and is in keeping with Prime's more aggressive nature in the show.

I hope the alt mode is suitably cool.
Ai Megumi
Well who really thought he died or where to badly demaged anyway?
This is Optimus we are talking about, but I agree seems he get a complete tuneup and I like it.
Bountyan
Looks...interesting. I can't really say anything until there's a bigger toy.
Kaijumaster
very nice, I hope it is indicative of a larger figure to come....
GAUGE
Pretty tiny photo. can't really make out any details.

Guess we just have to wait til they release larger photos.
st.ranger
Another Optimus and Bumbler? Where is Megatron? That Voyager/Powerizer class sux.
MisterGuyMan
The toy looks pretty terrible but the design could lead to a pretty cool looking bigger Optimus mold.
Autovolt 127
If Prime survived. I sure as hell hope he gets reformatted as this.

It looks awesome.
Girl Pants
It would be pretty weird to go through a series where none of the on-screen characters get a new body.

While I don't expect Mad Max Bee, WJ or SW to appear on the show, I could see this dude getting an upgrade given the season finale. And if they are going to keep pumping out toys of him, at least give us a new model. I think a lot of us would have bought more movie Primes/Bees if they had actually significantly differed from each other.
Fort Max
I don't know if he's noticed but he appears to have a giant metal beard on his groin.

I have a feeling that, if you don't expect it to happen, you may find yourself sorely disappointed when it does. Me, I'm just going to prep for it. That way if it doesn't happen and they instead have 'armor' modes somehow incorporated into their look in the show, but isn't their all the time look... I'll be pleasantly surprised and happy.

Ok. I am a newby here. How am I spose to read what's under the blacked out bits.

Put your mouse pointer over it.
Rob
The design looks like the one from the Vault book
FanimusMaximus
Give me more pics and then I'll judge if it's worth buying.

Get out.
rattraprules98
I'm hoping this means that Magnus might show up in the show. Maybe Optimus is held captive in Megatron's fortress and Ultra Magnus shows up and takes command of the Autobots in his absence.
Cha Chi
It was quite obvious the mystery commander and, i suspect, voyager was OP after watching the last episode... We might have hoped it was Shockwave or something cool like that. NO it couldn't be that easy. Keep dreaming
Dolza_Khyron
spoiler alert optimus prime is not dead?

really? THAT is still a spoiler at this point in the franchise?
Cha Chi
Credit where it is due though, nice to already have Magnus before he makes his appearance, as should now be expected by his weaponizer
Digilaut
Prime is one of the few designs in the show I love, and from what I can tell so far, this doesn't look like an improvement (for me).

But I'll hold my judgment until we get some better pics, this is a really small pic (of a possible render) of a cyberverse toy. Not really honest to draw conclusions from that.

Judging from the wheels though, it looks like he'll transform into a...beast of a truck. Ho, ho ho ho ho.

You have guessed pretty much my thoughts.

I could see Magnus maybe undermining Prime too, causing issues for Bulkhead, as Magnus was his old leader.

Well I guess it's good news then that he lost his bellpeppers playbook when the base blew up.
Fallout
that looks terrible... hoping the voyager will be better.
JukeOutlander
Nice updated look.
grunge
actually this new mold reminds me of the unused armada concept art for optimus



which i would very much like to see ...
SPLIT LIP
Now that's an Optimus Prime to remember.
Prime Jetscream
Surprising. I'm betting that Optimus gets a new body. And ANOTHER Magnus? I doubt that's a coincidence. I bet he'll fill in for Optimus.
