While we saw Kickback displayed in the dealer room this past weekend at BotCon, Hasbro has released the official images of Ultra Magnus (Optimus Prime repaint with new head mold), Sideswipe, Starscream, and Fireflight (Shockwave repaint)!

my thoughts exactly. thats gonna be the first time i buy that mold
That's because Optimus isn't supposed to be that bulky. FOC Ultra Magnus will look great standing next to WFC Optimus Prime.
amen. i love those seekers! I think the only other repaint i would willingly buy is Ironhide/Ratchet
It's stupid of Hastak not to create 2 easy repaints of any starscream mold, possibly the only repaints that many of us collectors will pick up on a regular basis. I'm sooo getting an extra Starscream to turn into Dogfight!
It would be stupid of Hasbro not to crank out 2 easy repaints of that Starscream mold.
I already knew I was grabbing up 2 Shockwaves for parts swapping with earth mode Jazz. Now I'm debating picking up 2 Fireflights for parts swapping with HFTD Terradive... that head screams Bomb-burst to me
Really? I hadn't noticed. That is sneaky, but in a good way. I think speaks to colors used on the Jazz toy how they're so dull.
that Sideswipe is a remold of the Jazz mold. pretty sneaky Hasbro...
Oddly that mold looks so much better to me with Magnus' colors than it does as Prime.
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: Firsthand thoughts on every Power of the Primes figure out so far! Street Fighter X Transformers may be the single greatest Transformers idea ever. 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! Plus: new photos of Masterpiece Dinobot, MP39 Sunstreaker, Voyager Class Power of the Primes Starscream, Perfect Beast Mega Doragon, and way, way more!
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.
