    ‪PotP Optimus Primal > Upgraded

    Weekend project! Simce there was no compelling reason to open the toy sooner, I decided to wait until I got both ToyHax stickers & DNA Accessory upgrades before I cracked it open! Though still not perfect, I’m pleased with how it turned out w/ these simple additions.

    The DNA accessory upgrade includes some beautiful and much needed new giant orange monkey hands. Each finger has 3 points of articulation which looks SO COOL! I never liked how the original toy had that weird 90 degree bend in the fore-fingers. It also includes Optimal’s orange laser rifles, a pair of Primal swords, 2 less-hollow guns to be mounted on his chest, upgraded fore-arm panel armor. Perhaps most important of all, a wheel so he can turn into his Cybertronian armored car mode and cure the hollow chest problem of his beast mode.

    The toyhax sticker updates are equally essential! Several areas of missing red paint deco on the Deluxe (season 1) Primal are necessary additions, and the gorilla and combined Optimal Optimus robot mode needs some extra shine, which these stickers provide!

    Overall, I believe this is toy suffered from the budget restrictions of being a Leader Class figure of the line and really needed to be more. Would’ve been great, for example, as a “Commander Class” toy like Siege Jetfire... That said, third party add-ons provide the necessary elements to bring it up a few notches, closer to what I had hoped for originally. I’ve also come to realize how we’re all #SpoiledBySiege because wow does that Deluxe component Primal need rocker ankles!

    Opened a few #TransformersTCG booster packs, and got our first “Swap Parts” - the first card to be banned in tournament play! Too bad, so sad!

    Freelance #Transformers (& more) Concept Artist Emiliano Santalucia Interview

    Italian website madmass.it interviews the designer who has worked on many toys throughout the Prime Wars Trilogy and upcoming toys like the #Ghostbusters crossover Ectrotron (package art)! Ooooh what else might have been working on lately?!?!

    Thankfully, web browsers can loosely translate the Italian:

    “Madmass: ...looking at Emiliano's professional history, is to find oneself in front of a true collectibles enthusiast.
    ES: ... 2008 the turning point. Made contact with Hasbro, I started the work that I still do and that I hope to do for the rest of my life: the toy designer and concept designer... ...our job is to be at the service of the company's vision and internal designers. Obviously we put our own, but it is not, or should never be, an expression of personal taste, but rather an ability to adapt to the needs of the project...”

    Needlenose in the #TransformersTCG

    New card coming in wave 3 Siege gives us a very interesting star card combo! Even though his stats are worse than average his skills are great! Also something worth noting is the tetra jet alt mode, siege Starscream resembling robot mode in a wave titled Siege!! New Needlenose toy?!?

    New Alpha Trion card is the #TransformersTCG!

    Joining the ranks of wave 3 Siege we now have Alpha Trion! This is an interesting new card with some very good skills! If we get some Spaceship cards (crossing my fingers) this character might work nicely with Major Shockwave? Let me know what you think, play on!

    Transformers TCG Sargent Cog!

    Sargent Cog is the first Super Rare 10 star weapon upgrade! Is he worth it?? I think so, though his robot mode has pretty bad stats and no skills to make up for it, when he is KO’d you may attach him to one of your characters +4 attack (which has only been seen on cards like Grenade Launcher or Reckless Charge!!) and a pretty great skill the would have worked great with Swap Parts RIP. Too soon? #TransformersTCG

    Thundercracker Joins the Cast of #ForgedToFight

    It’s a pretty simple re-color of Starscream with exactly the same special moves and game play, but it does show a sign of life at Kabam, and we’re hoping to see more!

    “Today, Kabam officially added Thundercracker to their TRANSFORMERS-themed mobile fighting game Transformers Forged to Fight! Starting now, players can officially add the Deception to their ultimate squad of Transformers.

    Often fighting in the shadow of fellow Decepticon Starscream, Thundercracker loves a good battle…but only against a worthy opponent. He hates fighting against humans because it feels like unfair victory rather than true combat, and Decepticons aren’t forged to fight by overpowering the weak.”

    Thanks to Hasbro PR for passing along the info!

    “I need that flight tech!” - Studio Series 44 DotM Optimus Prime

    Always wanted an Optimus, complete with trailer that transforms into that crazy weapons rack and rocket-backpack! Are we to understand that this trailer is what became of the corpse of Jetfire after he committed suicide and Revenge of the Fallen?

    My other, favorite ridiculous Optimus line from this film is when he screams,
    “I’M COMING FOR YOOOOOO!”
    The first time you hear it we assume he’s calling to Sam that he’s coming to rescue him. Only later did you see that OP is totally oblivious to Sam and it’s really just a battle cry as he charges in with guns blazing to destroy Shockwave’s giant worm monster thing! Just so out of character for Optimus you have to laugh!

    Our first look at the figure, in package and official publicity photos comes by way of Autobase Aichi - http://bit.ly/2GrXDma

    Coming with the new Wave 3 “Siege” of the Transformers Trading Card Game, black Battle icons. Previously there were three icon colors, orange which adds to the attack, blue which adds to the defense, green which can be picked up after each battle, and now, black which adds Pierce! Two cards with this icon have been revealed, both of which are shown below, and are very good! Stay tuned for more reveals coming soon (hopefully)!
