An unsourced anonymous image board post has provided something a bit interesting to look at: Power of The Primes Rodimus Prime broken down to its individual units showing a new perspective of how the full Leader Class toy comes together. As shown we can see the Hot Rod robot, plus the transformed state of the trailer that forms most of the Rodimus body, along with the Rodimus arms, which detach between forms. Of note which may not have been clear before, the Matrix chamber is located within the Rodimus Prime specific body portions rather than as part of Hot Rod directly. Keep reading to see the photo.

For those of you who like to do your shopping online, we have good news. TFsource have just let us know they have opened pre-orders for the initial waves of the Transformers Power of the Primes action figures inlcuding the Prime Masters, Legends, Deluxe, and Voyager class toys. See the available listings now at TFsource.

I don't think Jazz was really done any favors by having to become a combiner limb in the latest interpretation, though for the most part the execution of that feature in the toy went just fine. But there are some engineering problems, joint tolerance issues, and more really detracting from this toy. Which is a shame given how I really like where the vehicle mode went and I so wish I could feel the same about most of the rest of it.

Surprisingly, even as most online retailers were beginning to just accept preorders for Power of The Primes wave 1, Hasbro Toy Shop has managed to get the first Prime Master assortment in stock, consisting of Micronus with Cloudburst Decoy Suit, Liege Maximo with Skullgrin Decoy Suit, and Vector Prime with Metalhawk Decoy Suit.
