Ubiquitous, world-devouring megabusiness Amazon.com
has posted a new listing for Power of the Primes
Special Edition Blast Off! The information in the listing corroborates the leaks
and distributor listings
that pegged Blast Off as a special edition with a bonus Prime Master. Keep reading for more info!
Transformers Combiner Wars Blast Off and Megatronus Prime Master
-Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Blast Off and Megatronus Prime Master
-Includes a special edition Deluxe Class Blast Off figure with premium deco
-Includes the special edition, clear Megatronus Prime Master figure
-Comes in special edition packaging; celebrate the Prime Wars Trilogy with this collectible set
-Includes Deluxe Class Decepticon Blast Off figure, special edition Megatronus Prime Master figure, 2 accessories, and instructions. Ages 8 and up.
All signs point to Blast Off - and most likely his followup Repugnus - as being continuations of the "Special Edition" figures started last year with Arcee and Grotusque. The "Special Edition" packaging promised in the listing will probably bear a striking resemblance to a sturdy cardboard mailer of the type that would've been used if the promised Transformers Fan Club had come to fruition. (But will look really cool unfolded, of course.)
Thanks to leaks, we know that Special Edition Blast Off is going to be a Hasbro release of TakaraTomy's Unite Warriors
Blast Off, the new space shuttle mold created for their Bruticus and Baldigus/Ruination releases. The timeframe of release on these figures and their exclusivity, etc. is unknown. That said, keep an eye on this Amazon this coming weekend, as we have a hunch it may be one of Hasbro's new simultaneous exclusives that coincide with major toy-related events.
