Takara has released 10 new figures into their Power of The Primes line. This wave features quite a few dinobots and fighter jets including Grimlock, Sludge, Starscream, and Dreadwing. Also included is a prime master of Alchemist Prime.
Transformers Generations Power of the Primes Leader Class figures are 9-inch-scale figures that come with a Matrix accessory and converting Evolution Armor. Use the Evolution Armor to evolve these figures. With the Matrix of Leadership, Orion Pax becomes leader of the Autobots: Optimus Prime. Autobot Hot Rod becomes leader of the Autobots: Rodimus Prime. The set is priced at $99.99 or each single it $54.99.
Finally, the last price point for wave 1 of Power of The Primes has hit retail in the US, marking the completed launch of the newest iteration of Transformers Generations. Rodimus Prime and Optimus Prime, comprising Leader wave 1 have been purchased from a Target in Duarte, California by MoonStreakr
who shared a photo of the toys with the receipt for verification. It looks like these have been pulled from a freshly opened case, and as of the time of this writing, online checks of Target's database are not indicating any stock in the country, so we may have to wait a bit for the system to catch up before it's time to start the hunt again.

! Multiple members of the 2005 Forums are reporting that the Power of the Primes
Wave 1 Voyagers are now arriving in Minnesota ToysRUs stores! The Voyagers were generally lagging behind the other assortments in US markets, making this the first chance for fans to assemble 2/3rds of a Volcanicus and of whatever Starscream's combiner name is. Hopefully we'll know soon, but in the meantime, click through for a link to the messages!

has reported that a local store in Malaysia has Power of the Primes
Prime Masters, Legends, Deluxes, and Voyagers on sale! This is our first sighting in Asian stores, and our second overall sighting of Voyagers after a sighting in Canada this week. Hopefully they'll move into other markets soon. Keep reading for sighting photos, mirrored here!
Another chance! Via Ben's World of Transformers,

reports that Titans Return
Deluxe Arcee with Titan Masters Leinad and Ultra Magnus were sighted in a physical ToysRUs store! The going rate for the set was $26.99 - and they're being displayed in their featureless boxes, which we're still 100% certain were designed as mailers for an aborted Transformers Fan Club. Happy Hunting!
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
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!
We have a variety of reports recently that the final regular wave of Titans Return, boasting Slugslinger as its only new offering, is hitting stores in the US. We have confirmed sightings at Walmart locations in Texas, as well as one from a Meijer in Indiana. For those Midwesterners, we understand Meijer is having a buy one get one half off sale right now, which combined with Slugslinger starting to make the rounds marks this as a good time to try for a local toy hunt. Now, if only the later Deluxe waves of The Last Knight Premier Edition would follow suit...
Via Ben Yee's BWTF we have word that fan Joe Deas has made an interesting find at Walgreens: Cyber Battalion Jetfire! The Cyber Battalion figures are large, simple toys often borrowing engineering from existing Legends and Cyberverse figures which had been for quite a while exclusive to regions outside the US. This find at a price of $16.99 should be good news for collectors hoping to add some representatives from this line to their collections without paying substantial premiums to have them imported. Click through for the photographic proof mirrored from the BWTF post!
Ozformers has shared some good news on Facebook, particularly for their fellow Australian collectors: The final assortments of Titans Return Deluxes are being spotted - including Slugslinger, the final general retail Deluxe of the line. Sluslinger was found at a Myer store by Justowen. Further, thanks to Joel Delahunty, we have a report on the full case breakdown for Wave 6, which had been a complete mystery up to now. Keep reading for the details!
Great news, if the Titans Return Deluxe Brainstorm has eluded you, TFSource is offering this previously limited-edition Walgreens exclusive for just $19.99. Additionally for any that missed it, we have up the Wingspan and Cloudraker set up for preorder, these will be instock soon! Read on for links and more details.

just posted some images of a new addition to his local toystore: Titans Return
Trypticon! Before you get too excited, bear in mind that "local" in this case appears to mean the Phillipines. So if you're there, happy hunting and if not, don't take it too hard- sightings in Asia tend to mean that domestic release is on the horizon. Keep reading to see the photos!
