Rodimus Unicronus No Longer Giving Main Line Representation to Shattered Glass?
ExVee - Thursday, January 18, 2018


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!

The stock photos we've seen already, such as those featured on the Canadian Toys R Us website showed Rodimus Unicronus with a purple Autobot symbol as part of the chest deco, which for many cemented the reference back to Shattered Glass, although much of the deco used already favors what Shattered Glass Rodimus looked like. But the new in hand photos have the chest branded with a Decepticon symbol instead. Interestingly, the back panel of the box which we also got to see from today's early sighting report does show a Decepticon symbol in use, so it looks like this change was neither accidental, nor particularly late in the production process of the toy. This certainly raises the question then of what the original intent really was, and where through the process this change was made that retailer stock photos which otherwise seemed to reflect a finalized deco still showed the purple Autobot insignia.

the reason Rodimus Unicronus now has Decepticon logos on him it's probably due to retailers not understanding the idea of Shattered Glass because the way it's always been is Autobot autobot good guy, Decepticon bad guy. which there is an easy fix just get a a shattered glass... read more

Though you could hardly call it the Optimal Situation, Ron Perlman as Optimus Primal would seem to be the focus of this week's episode of Power of the Primes! Again, we're not keeping up on this one... but if you'd like to, keep reading for a link to the go90 service where the show is viewable in North America.
Thanks to Twiiter user @TcrackerGenmon who's posted some in-hand image of the Titan Class Transformers Predaking team out of the box. This is one mean looking team! Here we have a look at what these figures look like in the final production colors, with paint apps, combined and in the packing. The figures appear to be packed in beast modes on a big tray with the weapon and all secured with twist-ties.
Via TFND on Facebook, we have a look at the regular stock photos for Wreck-Gar, the Power of The Primes retool of Combiner Wars Groove. Expected to be a Walgreens exclusive, Wreck-Gar is an interesting combination of elements, seemingly dropping the groove mold's guns in favor of the same pinwheel axe from the original Generations toy, and including a Dinobot-type POTP combiner hand piece. We've got images of the robot and vehicle modes, package front, and a low res image of part of the back panel. Check them all out below!
In some parts of the world, not only is ToysRUs not going out of business, but they're still getting toys before everyone else. One such case is the Philippines, where Xavier Basa/@neurowing has spotted the Wave 3 Prime Masters: Quintus Prime/Bludgeon, Megatronus/Bomb-Burst, and Solus Prime/Octopunch! Keep reading for photographic proof.
Canadian retailer Northmen Collectibles have posted a pre-order page for the much anticipated Titans Return Predaking combiner team. They are rolling this set out for $229 CAD with word that this will be shipping out in October 2108. Read on to see the fill product information and official images for more details on these toys.
