Thanks to Kevin Liu we now have a very good look at Leader class Rodimus Prime, capping off the first wave of Power of The Primes. Kevin's video is of course in Chinese, but presented clearly enough to tell what's going on anyway. Most interestingly, we get side by sides with Titans Return Hot Rod, which shows the Hot Rod form of this toy to actually be a fair bit bigger. As Titans Return Hot Rod was already a bit big for a Deluxe, you can imagine the new one is surely pushing the boundaries of being comparable with Deluxes! The video as well as plenty of screencaps can all be found below - keep reading to see it all!
Through a Facebook video, we finally have a look at the retail version of POTP Rodimus Prime, the second toy in the first Leader assortment. Sadly the video itself is probably not worth watching, being both shot in vertical/portrait orientation and being quite low-res. You can find stills taken from the video highlighting key points for a quick look at the toy. We do have the video embedded just below as well, if you're dying to see the toy in action or get an early look at how some of the transformation works. Click through to check it all out!
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!
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. Keep reading to see the images, mirrored here for your convenience!
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.
The first of wave 1 literally just started appearing at retail in the US a couple days ago, and we're already starting to see a quick inflow if data about wave 2! Via Southern Hobby Supply, we have a few listing for Power of The Primes giving info about the second wave case assortments. We know the breakdowns now for the Prime Master, Voyager, and Leader classes. Deluxe and Legends did not have populated info as of the time of this writing. Find out what's coming up in the full article below.
Toys R Us Canada is joining the stock photo drop lineup with new images of Leader Class Rodimus Unicronus from wave 2 of Power of The Primes in a newly posted product listing. The toy is a redeco of Rodimus Prime, evidently with a modified Rodimus Prime head featuring a visor and thick robo-stache. The smaller Hot Rod component homages Shattered Glass
Rodimus in its hood deco and use of a purple Autobot logo versus the Decepticon emblems used elsewhere on the toy. Keep reading to see the high res stock images!
Autobase Aichi has posted more stock photo assets from the first wave of Power of The Primes, now giving us in package shots of the first Legends assortment with Beachcomber, Dinobot Slash, and Windcharger, plus the remaining photography for Leader class Optimus Prime and Rodimus Prime. Of note, this includes the individual Hot Rod vehicle form, which has not been played up very much since the reveal of the toy. You can find all these new images mirrored below!
The Facebook page TFCN has shared some low quality copies of retailer stock photos for upcoming Power of The Primes toys. We've got the in-box images for the Leader Class Optimus Prime and Rodimus Prime. We also have Voyager Grimlock in box, plus the basic out of package images showing the robot and dinosaur modes. So far none of these show an ill-conceived sticker-hell to match what we saw of Starscream just recently
, but there's always room to be surprised once these are out in the wild! Click through to see the images.
The TFCN group has shared a couple small images from Power of The Primes. First is a very low-res image of the back-of-box for Rodimus Unicronus, the evil redeco of wave 1 Leader Rodimus Prime. Unfortunately all but the largest text is completely illegible. Along with this is an image of the cover panel of Prime Master Alchemist Prime's instructions, showing the Prime Master and the Submarauder decoy suit, AKA Pretender Shell. We've mirrored the images, click through to see them now!
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!
Just in from NYCC 2017 we have Transformers Titans Return press preview images! Following the brand panel report. Have a look at the new figures including some first looks at the packaging for Grotusque and Sporplonok, Terrorcons Hun-Gurrr, Cutthroat, Sinnertwin, Blot, Power of the Primes Skarpnel, Windcharger, Rodimus Prime recolor Rodimus Unicronus, and more in the gallery after the jump.
A Weibo source has posted some new in-hand images of Power of the Primes
Leader class Optimus Prime. And perhaps most interestingly, they stand it up next to Masterpiece MP-10 Prime... and it doesn't fare all that badly! Certainly MP-10 has an edge since it doesn't need to integrate its trailer into its body, but in terms of style and scale they compare pretty respectably. Keep reading to see the images!
