Transformers Furai Action Optimus Primal
Good ol BBTS with that markup
I am so happy that Rodimus is a model.
Remains to be seen. Been a while since we've seen the Furai Model Rodimus, and Primal was revised to Furai Action after being initially revealed as a model kit (with no indication currently that the cheaper model is still in the works).
If anyone wants a Kuro Kara Kuri Dark Star Saber, there’s one for PO at BBTS now.
When did the Furai action line come to be? This Furai action Primal had me confused. I thought it was the Kuro Kara Kuri but at a cheaper price ( which I would be all in for ) but was only 6” with die cast which had me thinking are they putting die cast in model kits now.
Didn’t know this line existed.
My theory, Optimus Primal is under the Furai action label because at 6.7" he is smaller than the usual 8"+ tall scale of the Kuro Kara Kuri line. I think he will be built with the same high quality aspects as the K3 line (since die-cast is mentioned as well as 60pts of aritculation), which is why it is priced so high. So essentially, he is a smaller sized K3. Optimus Primal is not tall. There is a huge difference in height between him and Megatron. So this Optimus Primal is in the right scale to Megatron if a K3 Megatron version existed.
If Optimus Primal was under the K3 label he would have to be in the same 8" scale which would make him too large scale wise, so they decided to make him as a mini K3 and label him under the Furai action line. Again, just my theory.
Thanks mucho. I picked up that pre-order.
No prob! I was checking the status of my own PO when I saw it.
We have to assume that it will still be a model kit, because their Facebook says it will be a model kit. Picture provided. Plus, they have the Kuro Kara Kuri version, which will fill the spot for a higher end production model. I am also positive we will get a model kit version of Optimus Primal later, just like how Drift K3 got dropped first and then a model kit version later. At this point I would even welcome a Furai Action Rodimus with how good this one looks. To me looks better than the K3 version, and more comic accurate. I do plan to get both when they drop.
According to their IG, Fallen is going up for preorder soon. Very excited for that one
Megatron should be released soon no?
I don't think we've seen final shots of the Fallen yet, unless I've missed them.
I think Megatron was slated for August-November 2020, but I'm assuming the pandemic affected that. I haven't had anything to suggest he'll be shipped soon.
New release information & Packaging.
Production information : [Kuro Kara Kuri] STAR SABER (Black Limited Edition) will change the schedule as following !

WHERE IS RODIMUS!?!?!
Where is Megatron? He should be out this month.
They swapped Megatron and black edition Star Saber’s release dates
Wonder how these paint opps would look on the MP
Would love this on a Iron Trans, MP, or Planet X transformable Star Saber. And not cost so much money. At least they have the right idea. Need that dark Saber.
