The Rise of the Beasts hype continues to build, and Optimus Primal is getting the marketing push he’s always deserved. Today Hasbro has revealed Command & Convert Animatronic Optimus Primal, an animatronic toy (as the name might suggest) with an automatic transformation and over 100 sound and voice combinations. Check it out.

Get ready to roar into action with the Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Command & Convert Animatronic Optimus Primal electronic toy! Inspired by the new Transformers: Rise of the Beasts film, Optimus Primal converts into his powerful gorilla mode and guards Earth from every threat as leader of the Maximals. This 12.5-Inch electronic toy features automatic conversion between robot and gorilla modes at the sound of your voice! Activate more than 100 sound and motion combination with voice activation or at the push of a button. Features realistic molded fur details and comes with 2 attachable sword accessories. Requires 4 1.5V AA/LR6 batteries, not included.
I’m rather reminded of 2007’s Ultimate Bumblebee, and the much more recent Robosen Optimus Prime.
