We previously reported this special black redeco of TR Optimus Prime, and now we have some extra details and the confirmation that this Special Edition Primitive Skateboarding Optimus Prime will be a San Diego Comicon Exclusive.
Hyperbeast.com shared clear pictures in both modes and packaging and information about this release:
“Transformers: The Last Knight hits theaters June 21, and fanatics can celebrate the movie with a new Optimus Prime action figure. The autobot figurine was partially designed by Primitive Skateboarding founder Paul Rodriguez, and features some updates to the character’s traditional red and blue paint job. This Prime belongs to the Titans Return Powermaster reprise and is decorated in black and gold — a nod to Primitive’s signature colors. The toy figurine also comes with a ramp, rail, and hoverboard, so it can “Shreddicus Maximus” whenever he’s not battling the Decepticons.
Hasbro plans to premiere and sell the Primitive-Transformer for $50 USD at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, July 20. Leftovers will be available on Hasbro’s online site after the convention”.

TRANSFORMERS PRIMITIVE OPTIMUS PRIME Figure
(Ages 8 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $49.99/Available at Booth #3329 at Comic-Con International in San Diego)
Before OPTIMUS PRIME was blasting DECEPTICONS in battle, he was greasing the wheels of his skateboard with fellow skater, SHREDDICUS MAXIMUS. Shredding rad gnar on the boardwalks of the Senti Rust Pier, they up their street cred while nailing down their signature trick, the Null-Ray-Ray, annihilating the competition into mere grime… Now get ready for the gnarliest TRANSFORMERS stunt of the 21st century… TRANSFORMERS has worked with Primitive Skateboarding, the company founded by legendary skateboarder, Paul Rodriguez, to roll out this special edition TRANSFORMERS PRIMITIVE OPTIMUS PRIME Figure convention exclusive. Co-designed by Paul, the figure features Primitive Skate’s classic black and gold colors for a more sophisticated and on-brand look. To up the skateboarding theme, the figure is placed in premium Primitive Skate-inspired packaging that mimics a “skate shoe” box featuring grip-tape inspired texture. As the ultimate twist, the pack features rail, ramp and hover board accessories! The pack includes a LEADER CLASS OPTIMUS PRIME figure, a TITAN MASTER SHREDDICUS MAXIMUS figure and eight accessories. Converts from robot to tractor trailer in 23 steps and from tractor trailer to battle station in 10 steps. The TRANSFORMERS PRIMITIVE OPTIMUS PRIME Figure will be for sale during San Diego Comic-Con 2017. Following the convention, a limited number will be available on HasbroToyShop.com.
