Our second video from our forums member TMan978 is for Blackwing - or if you're willing to get dangerous, Darkwing - which ships one per case alongside Rippersnapper and company in Power of The Primes Deluxe wave 2. Fortunately if you miss it this time around, we have inside info that it's planned to be reshipped as part of wave 4. For reference, Blackwing shares a lot of design and engineering with Combiner Wars Air Raid, but also brings a decent amount of new to the table, much like Dreadwind did. The video is embedded below, so go ahead and give it a watch!
We're capping this year's Toy Fair 2018 with the official images Power of the Primes Transformers action figures shown at this years show. Get the full sized view of the stock product images for the Legends,Prime Masters, Deluxes, Voyagers and Leader class figures in our handy to view gallery after the jump.
has published a synopsis of the Transformers news in this month's issue of Hyper Hobby,
one of the many hobby magazines published monthly in Japan. While the mechanical translation is typically shaky, it seems as though the Legends
series, with its higher standards of deco, will be continuing alongside the Japanese release of Power of the Primes!
But there is still a catch - keep reading for details.
The offitical Hasbro Transformers site has been officially taken over by the Power of the Primes Series. The visually engaging new site features our favorite Maximal leader, Optimus Prime holding up the Matrix! Additions we have links to a breakdown of the Prime Wars Triogy, Toys, Games and more of the PoP link. There's also legacy links to Titans Return and The Last Knight sections as well. Check it out now at Transformers.com
Via Loopaza on Facebook, we have images of the Transformers-relevant pages of Figure King
magazine #240, which we've mirrored here for your convenience. Within you'll find photos of TakaraTomy's Power of the Primes releases, which include the five Dinobots, Dreadwind and Blackwing, Moonracer, and Starscream and sure are all looking very domestic. There are also shots of the previously-revealed MP Shadow Jaguar and the apparently impending Japanese release of the Transformers: The Last Knight
Armor-Up Turbo Changers from last summer. Keep reading to see for yourself!
Amazon Japan has posted stock photos for the majority of the June and July assortments of TakaraTomy's Power of The Primes releases. Firstly, this crushes a lot of last-gasp hopes from the fan community as we find that the Dinobots aren't being redirected to a revived Unite Warriors (instead being the majority of June's individual releases), and no Masterforce-based redeco of Darkwing and Dreadwind is forthcoming. We do get really good looks at a lot of what we're getting as wave 2, including our best look yet at the Alchemist Prime/Submarauder Prime Master. We've mirrored all the images below, click through to have a look!
Singapore fangroup Planet Iacon
broke the news - and site sponsor BigBadToyStore has just confirmed - that TakaraTomy's version of Power of the Primes begins in May! Titled very similarly as Power of Prime
, the figures listed are being released in a format seemingly identical to their US releases. But, what's interesting is what's not
listed from Wave 1. Keep reading for details!
We're past halfway now with Power of the Primes Deluxe Wave 1, and in today's review we're bringing you Dreadwind! Notable for bringing some Combiner Wars wave 1 in to our Power of The Primes, upon closer examination there may be fewer reused parts than you'd think. More importantly, retooled Aerialbot or not, it came out quite well and makes a decent take on the character. It might have been nice to get as a Voyager, but you can't argue with this deco at any size class, and the price definitely beats the Botcon exclusive.

Kevin Liu's Youtube channel has broken a first direct look at the torso mode for Power of The Primes Starscream, shown in a video review of Deluxe Dreadwind. Leaks recently had shown us lineart, giving a general idea of the shape of the torso configuration, but Hasbro's unwavering secrecy regarding the combiner potential of the entire line left us wanting for images of the actual toy in its combiner configuration. We have a few screencaps of that, plus the jet mode (criminy those stickers), plus you can check out the review (in Chinese) as well.
It's that time again! The first Power of the Primes
Deluxes are hitting now at certain Target stores
, and so it's time to take a look at what exactly we're getting. Short version: Dinobots, Jazz, half of a G1 Powermaster power couple, and Combiners are back. Keep reading for what's in the wave!
on Twitter has snagged some Power of The Primes following their discovery at retail today, and has posted several photos of an opened Dreadwind. But this set of photos doesn't focus on the figure quite so much as the new accessories we'll be seeing throughout the line. So we get a nice look at the combiner hand, the secret of the dummy plug for its Prime Master slot, and front and back of this line's collector cards. Plus a little fun with a vintage Darkwing. Find all the photos mirrored below!
Those of us who've been around the block a few times knew to be expecting Power of The Primes sometime before the end of the year. We just might not have expected a first sighting quite this early. Arizona, frequently a magical land of new toys has yielded the first sighting of the new Generations imprint, as Jazz and Dreadwind were found at a Target in Sierra Vista by Skalor
. A photo of the receipt was provided which also gives us a Target DCPI number which appears to be new for this line - which means it can be used to do some inventory searching right from home! Click through for the pictures and more info!
From retailer Forbidden Planet, we have a first look at several pieces of retail stock photography for the first wave of Power of The Primes. Excluding the Prime Master class for the time being, we have everything from Legends and up, including Windcharger, Beachcomber, Jazz, Dreadwind, our first two Dinobots, plus the Voyagers and Leaders whose photos we saw before, but now at a larger clearer resolution. Forbidden Planet lists a ship date from their suppliers as January 7th, which may give some insight toward general availability. We've got the whole batch of images mirrored, keep reading to see them now!
Another leak has come out from the usual Weibo source, and it's a pretty substantial one. It's primarily made of art assets for Power of the Primes
packaging and instructions, so - while small - they represent the best looks we've yet gotten at largely unseen figures such as Voyager Elita-1, Deluxe Moonracer, and more. We also get illustrations of Jazz, Moonracer, and Rippersnapper as arms, and some in-package photos to top it all off. Keep reading for a full catalog of what's here!

It's that time again: New York Comic-Con is over, and so now it's time to go over what exactly we know about the figures in next year's Generations line, Power of the Primes
. At this point, it's quite a lot! Some blanks were filled in at NYCC, some leaks confirmed, and even a couple minor surprises as to the nature of the Deluxe and Voyager accessories. Keep reading to see it all!
