A lot of Transformers fans had been speculating that the Power of the Primes Optimus Primal might have been getting a red and blue Optimus Prime deco as Primal Prime. Thanks to this post on Baidu, we can confirm that Hasbro has taken that idea and taken a sharp steer in a different direction.
The “Throne of the Primes” figure is a season 1 Optimus Primal deco applied to the Power of the Primes Optimal Optimus, a cool black deco for the character that is unprecedented for this particular iteration of Optimus Primal.
To make this package even cooler, he’s packaged seated on a throne with some exclusive Prime Masters packaged in a sort of Mayan calendar design, with the Maximal symbol also visible right behind the head. He’s also got extra accessories, including a crown and a large, squared staff. If you look closely below where Primal’s fist grasps the staff, you can see this set comes with an exclusive Prime Master, which seems to be an exclusive redeco of the Onyx Prime that comes with Predaking.
We’ve not yet got confirmation how this figure is coming to us, but it’s been observed that the set is in English-only packaging, which implies it is an exclusive release, and given the timing, we can speculate this one might be another upcoming SDCC exclusive release.
