    I don't mind the dual swords, it's always been Primal's thing. But yeah, a dude of his bulk would look great pulling out a Kanabō.

    Yeah it’s kind of strange that his swords are smaller and less ornate than the source material. I would’ve expected them to be more elaborate.

    Not a deal-breaker but a little disappointing. The figure itself looks excellent, though.

    yeah, perhaps a huge battle axe and/or hammer would have been a more appropriate weapon for this brute!!!

    If the second set of Liokaiser drops in June, then maybe we’ll see Primal in July?

    Super excited for this guy. Might be the best implementation of the Samurai aesthetic. I’ve always felt that the more animalistic designs worked better and liked how Bludgeon was slightly altered to be more insect like. Primal looks especially regal! I think this mold in red and gold (Burning Convoy) would be stunning.


    Hopefully Cheetor comes soon after!

    I like his look a lot. His helmet appeals to me.

    The dual swords, although a necessary staple of base Primal, feel like they should be larger, rather than the slim katana look.

    I was hoping for a oni mutant battle mask and a kusarigama with a huge-ass sickle. Like Hisagi from bleach size sickle and the skull mace from the og toy

    I have to say BW makes a lot more sense to me in a medieval samurai world vs G1 with modern vehicle modes playing dress up as samurai.

    I might get this and stick to BW for the samurai line… since I can actually wrap my head around that

    Plus that Black Arachnia looks wicked.

    Edit: yep, I’m in for this and sticking to BW for samurai… and skipping the other BW line I was considering since I love IF so much and this looks so badass.

    It’s not often I like Primal, in fact most of the time I don’t like him at all.

    This though? I like this for some reason. I suppose it gives me more of a mecha feel than an organic one? I’m not sure since it’s based on Samurai lol.

    Still interesting, and may make me get him to go with their upcoming Primal Prime.

    Primal's two swords are standard for his design but I actually don't like the thin blades Iron Factory gave him.

    If I'm not using it for Lio Kaiser, I may give Primal the war hammer that came with Killbison. It seems a more fitting weapon for the Great Ape!

    Does he have his arm cannons?. Wish his shoulder cannons where bigger. Like everyone else he is a big bot so why the small weapons. hopefully their will be a transformation video soon so i can decide if i want to get him or not. I love beast wars and love the samurai cross over. STILL WOULD LIKE THE REST OF THE DINOBOT'S DONE IN THIS LINE.

    Damn, this looks super cool. Not too keen on the gorilla mode head though, that's my one issue. I think it's a little small and not "tall" enough like a real gorilla head proportionally is. But still looks like a really cool figure. I'm tempted, despite only having their Lio Convoy still.

    I actually really like the blue katakana. It's his weapons turned into the style of the figure.

    I only wish we got a mutant mask and a reference to the mace

    I don't mind the dual sword thing, but rather the weapons being dull. Grimlock has them, Drift has them, and for the body proportion, they fit well, but for Primal, it doesn't do the trick for me. I'm pretty sure I'm just nitpicking, because they don't look bad for someone who don't mind those weapons at all.
    Good thing is those exchangeable hands of IF are quite good, so I can slide in something else for him.

    It'd be cool if he came with a kanabo like this (Rajang Demon Rod), but I'm sure someone could print something.
