Toy News: Possible SDCC exclusive Optimus Primal revealed

A surprise post on Baidu appears to show a possible SDCC exclusive Optimus Primal figure! This redeco of "Power of the Primes" Optimus Primal using Optimus Prime's original black/white/red color scheme! Optimus sits on the "Throne of the Primes" and it appears he comes with what could be the "final" three Prime Masters that have not been released at retail. Also included is a mace that seems to double as a scepter and a homage to Transmetal Optimus Primal's mace weapons.

Toy Review: "Generations" Power of the Primes Snarl

Snarl is not the happiest Autobot around. Indeed, unless he is thrashing about in battle and trashing Decepticons, he mainly keeps to himself in a perpetual bad mood. Today I bring you my review and gallery of Snarl from "Power of the Primes"!
