While I'm happy that Beast Wars fans are getting updates to some of their favorite characters, Optimus Primal feels like a lot of work for very little in return. Some steps of the transformation are needlessly complex and fiddly, a simple leg fold would've worked better than a double knee. Playing with the figure really makes me appreciate just how great the original Primal toy was, and I recommend picking that one up if you've never experienced it.
JTPrime17 has discovered more new inventory listings this time for what could be possible reissues of the original Transformers Beast Wars series figure molds, The listings include both the Optimus Primal and Megatron leader scales listed for about $50 USD, Cheetor listed for $22.97 USD, and Rattrap with no price or release date for any of these.
