Power of The Primes Elita-1 - First In Hand Pictures Of Wave 2 Voyager (How Bad Are The Stickers?)
ExVee - Sunday, February 11, 2018


Thanks to Ricky DeWeese who posted tothe Facebook group Transformers Addicts, we have our first look at Power of The Primes Elita-1 out of package. Elita and Hun-Gurrr both suddenly appeared in store at a Walmart in California this weekend, and we were able to share photos of Hun-Gurr with you earlier today. Elita-1 shows a healthy degree of new parts versus Starscream, leading to a decently distinct visual identity. What it largely has in common with Starscream is expansive wing stickers making up a large portion of the deco for the jet mode. But, it may not be quite as bad. Keep reading for images and more details!

This veers off toward "opinion piece" at this point, but while doing functionally the same thing that Starscream's stickers do, covering the majority of wing surface with complex printed details and text, to me it doesn't come off nearly as bad. The transition from the magenta plastic to an equivalent color on the foil stickers is much smoother than the change from grey plastic to silver foil on Starscream. The colors also contribute more pink to Elita-1's vehicle mode, and at least in terms of color layout seem to do a decent job of enhancing the deco. Now, they're still far from perfect. In the photos we have (one closeup of wing surface was sourced from Autobase Aichi, with original photographer currently unknown) we can already see edges peeling up, and the typical hallmarks of Hasbro's factory applied stickers in full effect. And if the metallic finish of the stickers is itself a problem for you, that's not going to be different here. But for myself, this seems like something I can live with easily enough. Unlike Starscream whose stickers were a final nail in that toy's coffin.

Now if only these new toys would hurry and move east so I could find them!

It looks like I might get this one despite the stickers.  But thanks for using your platform to bring this sticker mess to the forefront.  Its ruining many figures.  That's why I see many Starscreams shelfwarming in my area.

As of writing, the brief voting period in the 2018 Transformers fan vote event is nearly over with. While we await the results of the choice of one of three Deluxe VS sets to be released next year (from which Impactor vs Mirage appeared to be taking a lead at one point), Hasbro has released via Facebook a post clearing up some small details, such as the incorrect identification of Impactor as a Decepticon in the sample art. For the most part it doesn't offer much, but one of the answers actually does give us something to work from. Keep reading to find out what!
