In 1999 a small group of Transformers were released as part of "Beast Wars". Known as the Mutants, these four Transformers did not have robot modes but instead transformed from one beast mode to another!

Toy News: Air Attack Optimus Primal Platinum Edition revealed

Thanks to the folks over at Planet Iacon on Facebook we now have some unofficial photos of what appears to be an Optimus Prime themed release of Optimus Primal! This uses the Air Attack Optimus Primal sculpt from Beast Machines and gives it new colors. 2016 is the Year of the MOnkey, making this release even more appropriate. Even better? If these images are accurate, Primal's packaging shows that he needs batteries and has lights with sound, meaning his original electronics are intact!
