Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Weaponizers and Cyberverse Commander Optimus Prime

beasthuntersoptimus

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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Looks better than what is current.
    Maybe Optimus won't be as much of a pussy in S3.
