    IIRC leaks have said we’re getting a Leader ROTB Primal.

    The SS version will be a leader class. But many people do not want to spend that much so a decent substitute will be the mainline Voyager. I know many people will get that as the replacement.

    SS is getting a Leader, but the ROTB mainline is getting a Voyager Primal.

    oh thanks for the confirmation. Will see which version looks nicer to me. That's what I'll end up getting.

    I mentioned this on another thread. Quite a lot of ROTB gimmick toys have arrived in various countries worldwide. In fact, all the known gimmick toys for the line are in US warehouses. Some countries are misinformed or does not adhere to embargoes/street dates. So, with toys already distributed, you are going to be seeing a lot of such "leaks" before the actual street date.

    Perhaps I missed it with the Optimus... but how and/or what... does the smashing do? Is the transformation spring loaded? Are kids going to be asking their friends if they wanna smash and not break out the Gamecube controllers?

    If only Hasbro included Dinobots with their original names in this line, British parents could hear their kids say, "I wanna smash a slag."

    Yeah it’s seems spring loaded. At least with the Optimus Prime one, you “smash” but really tap the toy 3 times. 1 pops the arms out. Another stands it up. The final pops out the head.

    This totally doesn’t look like the movie version. I wonder if this was a Buzzworthy version of Primal initially

    Somehow... I feel even more underwhelmed T_T... three taps? We had lever technology back in Beast Wars era, push buttons back in G1... T_T

    I usually hate these sort of figures for being overpriced and looking like crap in one or both modes, but this one is actually alright! Looks decent in gorilla and robot mode. In some ways I prefer this design to the movie version- the gorilla having more fur, the blue on the robot mode chest and head. I probably wouldn't get it for myself, but it looks good for donations or gifts.
