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!
Back in July after SDCC,
we published a quick... well, Prime
r on the upcoming Generations line Power of the Primes.
In the wake of HasCon 2017 we've got some more information, so it's time to go back through and lay it all out, class by class. Keep reading to see!
With SDCC 2017 put to bed and some other sources of information having been available to us, it's time to sit down and ask the question: what exactly do we know about Power of the Primes? And the answer is: not everything, but a lot. We've guessed a lot... and there were kind of some leaks that happened Monday too. Keep reading to see what we know and how we know it!
with more slides! In the single largest leak we've yet seen out of Weibo, the entire first four waves of Power of the Primes
have been leaked. We've got a Dinobot Combiner, the Terrorcons, a glimpse of the next Leader Optimus Prime, and much more! Keep reading for a list of what's here and why we're pretty sure it's all real!
We're still jammin' at SDCC 2017 with more of what you are looking for. We know you cannot be here, so we bring the show to you with these handy videos of the actual toy displays that you can watch. The next best thing to being there. Note, use the playback speed feature on YouTube if the video moves too fast for you.
At the Q&A part of the Transformers brand panel at San Diego Comic Con today, the Hasbro reps were asked about missing combiners not covered during Combiner Wars getting made. The question was met with a "stay tuned" standard non-commit answer. But you know, the real answer might have been staring us in the face all day - as well as the answer to another question or two, and Power of The Primes in addition to its Prime Masters gimmick may just turn out to secretly be Combiner Wars II.

The Transformers Facebook page has posted high quality samples of the same product renders that were just seen during today's Transformers brand panels at San Diego Comic Con. From these we can get good looks at Beachcomber, Skullgrin, Jazz, Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime, Starscream, and Dreadwind. The angle in Jazz also gives us our best indication yet that the toy has been designed with Combiner Wars-style extra hardware, including a hand-foot-gun port on its foot. Intriguing!
