Power of The Primes Starscream Running Change Variant Identified
ExVee - Tuesday, January 16, 2018


While still what we would consider early in its life cycle, it seems that a running change has already been carried out on the latest member of the generations Starscream family. Jason Rye reported this finding to us, which involves an alteration to how Starscream's wings/backpack connect to the body. The design tweak is said to improve how the jet mode comes together, and may have other benefits as well. You can see a side by side comparison of the two versions of Starscream, find out more detail, as well as get one of the batch codes identified as being associated with this running change below. Keep reading!

The new version features a channel cut in the side of the post socket, and the backpack is now attached at a slight angle. Reportedly this update allows the toy to peg together more completely and more securely and improves overall alignment in jet mode. Jason reports that some user-level work may still be required as the new version still apparently featured mold flash in some of the slots, but the overall experience seems to be better than the initial release. Jason gave us the batch code 73101, which can be found stamped in the box. Other codes may also feature this change, but at this time we aren't aware of a wider range to look for. There's also a good chance that Elita-1 will ship out with these changes in effect right from the start.

Followup: I've seen some people reporting that they have a box with 73101 and the old version of the mold. It leads me to believe that during that production run is when they altered the molds. So don't just trust stamp number alone.

During Toy Fair this year, the Hasbro team gave the invited fan media representatives a special treat, in the first reveal of what the next instance of Transformers Generations would be. Power of The Primes is wrapping up in 2018, and with it comes the conclusion to what Hasbro referred to as the Prime Wars Trilogy. Part of the meaning of this is that 2019 will be the beginning of something completely new, a point they made very clear despite having few real details they could share. But something about the way they talked about it concerned me and got me thinking. The following is a speculative post, so if you'd like to join me on a journey of theorizing the future, please click through and continue reading!
The thing about rampant speculation is that if you open your mouth, you will almost certainly not always be right. But RAC has embraced that, and today he comes back to look over his own pre-Toy Fair predictions and see what happened and what didn't, and how close he got. There's only one category where he can claim 100% accuracy... keep reading to see what it is!
