Hoverboard and Rail Revealed for Primitive Skateboarding Optimus Prime!
More pics have surfaced today of the upcoming Primitive Skateboarding version of Titans Return Powermaster Optimus Prime, revealing that the figure comes with a newly tooled hoverboard and ramp/rail for Titan Master Shreddicus Maximus! More details after the jump.
Earlier this month, we reported on leaked package and alternate mode images of the unusual exclusive, but these are the first images we’ve seen of the figure’s robot mode and the exclusive accessories.
The figure will sell for $50 at Hasbro’s booth at San Diego Comic Con, and leftovers will be available on the HasbroToyShop site afterwards.
Thanks to Hypebeast and Allspark user Nevermore for bringing this to our attention.
UPDATE: Hot on the heels of this leak, Hasbro sent out an official press release which confirms the news and adds some choice flavor text:
Before OPTIMUS PRIME was blasting DECEPTICONS in battle, he was greasing the wheels of his skateboard with fellow skater, SHREDDICUS MAXIMUS. Shredding rad gnar on the boardwalks of the Senti Rust Pier, they up their street cred while nailing down their signature trick, the Null-Ray-Ray, annihilating the competition into mere grime… Now get ready for the gnarliest TRANSFORMERS stunt of the 21st century… TRANSFORMERS has worked with Primitive Skateboarding, the company founded by legendary skateboarder, Paul Rodriguez, to roll out this special edition TRANSFORMERS PRIMITIVE OPTIMUS PRIME Figure convention exclusive. Co-designed by Paul, the figure features Primitive Skate’s classic black and gold colors for a more sophisticated and on-brand look. To up the skateboarding theme, the figure is placed in premium Primitive Skate-inspired packaging that mimics a “skate shoe” box featuring grip-tape inspired texture. As the ultimate twist, the pack features rail, ramp and hover board accessories!
