Combiner Wars Wave 3 Voyager Hot Spot Found In United Kingdom
RAC - Thursday, July 02, 2015
UK Combiner Wars fans were promised that, while Menasor (and a Superion that doesn't have a racecar for a limb) would remain an elusive dream, they would be getting Combiner Wars Wave 3. Today Urluck from Full Metal Hero confirmed that, as Hot Spot was found in an Argos store in Nottingham for 22.99. UK folks: keep reading for the post and evidence! US folks: look up the exchange rate, and thank your lucky stars!
After the announcement wave 2 wasn't coming to the UK, and frequent sightings of the related deluxes, I can now confirm that Voyager Class Hot Spot is available at UK retailer Argos. More specifically, I found a single example at Nottingham's Victoria Centre branch, and immediately brought it. One point to bear in mind however is that this toy was on their system at £29.99, rather than the £22.99 found in the paper catalogue, so if there wasn't an error, a price rise could be coming.

From the Facebooks of HK-TF members Waishing Leung, ChaRles Ng, Ting Yan Kwok, and Fido Li, we've got images of most if not all of Power of the Primes! Among the highlights are new looks at Optimus and Rodimus Prime as well as Grimlock confronting a horde of Titans Return Legends-class Gnaws. And also, Optimus Prime embraces his movie self (and the Prime Master/Titan Master/Matrix/Enigma cross-compatibility) and carries the Matrix of Faces.

Mattel rebuffs Hasbro, so I guess we're not getting a Transformers Battle Cat anytime soon. We share our thoughts on Titans Return Episode 3!

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.
