It was revealed over a week ago that San Diego Comic-Con 2018 would be showing some "Beast Wars" love via their release of Optimal Optimus in a new deco with the "Throne of the Primes". Now thanks to HasbroToyShop we have a official listing and photos of this set! The set is listed at $69.99. Oddly, the Inferno trading card is pictured with Optimal in what is likely a Photoshop error. Check out the official details and photos below:
San Diego Comic-Con 2018 is coming soon and Hasbro is working on building the hype train for the Transformers toys to be revealed at the convention! In past years SDCC 2018 is usually when the big reveals are made for the following year and this year fans speculate that we will get our first look at "War for Cybertron" at the convention! To tease fans further, Hasbro has released a silouette of what appears to be Optimus Prime holding his iconic rifle and an axe weapon! Could this be the first look at a "War for Cybertron" Optimus Prime?

It was revealed back in May that there would be a "Power of the Primes" Wreck-Gar figure, a retool and redeco of "Combiner Wars" Groove featuring different accessories (including the axe from "Reveal the Shield" Wreck-Gar.

Hot on the heels of this morning's reveal are what appear to be official Hasbro stock photos of (what appears to be) SDCC 2018 Optimus Primal! Via Hidden Remote, we now have confirmation of SDCC 2018 Optimus Primal with a look at the various modes of this figure and the Prime Masters included with it.

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.
