Power of the Primes - Wave 1 Shown Off At Australia Fan Event With Comparisons To G1 Figures
RAC - Monday, December 18, 2017


Ozformers admin griffin has posted images of a recent fan event held by Hasbro Australia! The fans were brought in to have a look at the first wave of Power of the Primes... and almost got a look at wave 2 Legends-class figures Tailgate, Battleslash, and Roadtrap - but those weren't cleared for reveal by Hasbro USA yet. But Australia did get the first official in-hand photos of the wave 2 Prime Masters! Keep reading for photos of the event!
Today Hasbro Australia hosted a product reveal for Power of the Primes (due in stores here mid January), at their offices in Sydney, for 15 fans to test drive, review and give their feedback (in person and on social media).

This has spawned from two years of a similar product reveal to fans during the Australian Toy & Hobby Fair in Melbourne, so this was the next step, so that we could hopefully have two each year on the Global reveals calendar for Hasbro - early year in Melbourne, late year in Sydney.
Unfortunately, this first Sydney event didn't end up allowing us to give a world first reveal of wave 2 Legends, as Hasbro in America have other plans for their official reveal... but as a consolation, it was still a lot of fun for a handful of Australian fans to be some of the first in this country to have seen in person, and held/played with some Power of the Primes toys (well... those, who hadn't already imported them from Asia or America).

The event was scheduled for 90 minutes from 11am, but since it started a little late, it ended up going for about 2 hours.

You know you've found Hasbro offices when you see big Nerf and Playdoh displays in the windows on one of the top floors.


So we know that the Wave 2 Legends are far enough along to be available in packaged samples. Hopefully we'll know more soon! Probably via Weibo, well before Hasbro USA wanted to announce it.

Earlier tonight we shared with you some photos of an apparently early-release copy of Rodimus Unicronus, the new addition to Power of The Primes Leader class wave 2. But there's a bit of a discrepancy with it, as highlighted for us on Twitter by Barricade64. The official images we've seen of the toy since it was revealed have featured aspects of its deco and the slight remolding of the Rodimus Prime head that point to an intentional nod at the Shattered Glass continuity that was a recurring staple of Fun Publications' time producing licensed material for the brand. It seems that isn't quite so much the case anymore. Keep reading!


Amazon Japan has posted stock photos for the majority of the June and July assortments of TakaraTomy's Power of The Primes releases. Firstly, this crushes a lot of last-gasp hopes from the fan community as we find that the Dinobots aren't being redirected to a revived Unite Warriors (instead being the majority of June's individual releases), and no Masterforce-based redeco of Darkwing and Dreadwind is forthcoming. We do get really good looks at a lot of what we're getting as wave 2, including our best look yet at the Alchemist Prime/Submarauder Prime Master. We've mirrored all the images below, click through to have a look!
Thanks to Justin geier who gave us the heads up on the in-hand images posted on Ebay of the Rodimus Unicronus In-Hand Images Power of The Primes Leader Class figure. This first wave of figures is barely out and we're already seeing the repaint hitting the shelves in Wichita, Kansas? Read on to see the in-hand images of Rodimus Unicronus below.

It's been a contentious issue over the last couple of Prime Wars installments, and it's only getting more intense. We can see the appeal of stickers to solve budgetary problems, but we can also see the stickers peel - often before we've even bought the toy! In this editorial, RAC goes over the hows and whys of stickers and cites the remarkable consensus growing in a consensus-resistant collector community: Hasbro, Please Stop. Click through for thoughts on this sticky situation.
