With the 20th anniversary of Beast Wars, Takara pays homage to the Beast series with MP-32 Masterpiece Optimus Primal! Features removable/replacable face masks, and his tell-tale swords, this is a Masterpiece not to be missed!
"Takara just raised the bar on what is considered "Masterpiece""
Wow. I'm not really a Beast Wars fan, but this figure is too good to pass up. Premium feel (nothing loose); elegant transformation like MP10; beautifully sculpted curves; I like to imagine he belongs in the G1 universe opposing the Predacons.
"Finally, Masterpiece Beast Wars, and it's Great!"
This is a really awesome figure. Looks extremely close to the animation model in robot mode and I suppose about as close as it can look to the animation in beast mode too. Great articulation, dual arm blasters hidden in both forearms, prime-jets on his back, twin swords, shoulder cannons that can fold back, light up eyes that stay on for a few seconds then fade away, and multiple faces for both modes. It's really great.
To make things even better, transformation isn't overly complex, so it's actually fun to change him back and forth.
Primal has room for improvement though.
The elbows just don't look good from any angle but the front, robot shoulder armor doesn't fold down enough to cover the white robo-biceps in gorilla mode, the robot feet are obviously seen sticking off the back of the beast heels, and least bothersome but still worth mentioning, his white robot thighs are visible on the back of beast mode.
A perfect figure is very rare and this isn't quite one of them. Still a great start to MP Beast Wars and a very cool figure.
Not only is this toy extremely accurate to the show, it improves upon the original design and is far more intricate to transform than you may suspect from the photos alone. Very heavy, sturdy figure with a sleek finish and perfect poseability and NO KIBBLE.
A mint box generally has no noticeable flaws. This doesn't mean it is a C10 box, but that it doesn't have any significant damage to the box. It still may have wear to the window, and a small amount of wear to the box that is noticeable upon close inspection.
A C9 box is still considered very displayable and may have a kink, ding, minor fray to an edge, etc. The box is still case fresh and unopened with factory sealed tape on both sides.
