"Organic life is often hidden, sometimes
overcome, but seldom extinguished!"
Optimus Primal, the stalwart commander of the Maximals
developed his trademark valor and heroism during his role in the
Beast Wars. Since returning to Cybertron, Optimus Primal takes on
the new role, training his Maximals the methods of conversion -
an art practically lost after the evil Megatron's virus wreaked
havoc on Cybertron. In robot mode, he wields deflector arms which
store energy and then regenerate as energy shurikins. Jump jets
on back allow for short-range flight. Has limited insight into past
and future. Can see and activate conversion potential in others.
