SDCC 2017 - Power Of The Primes Explained! John Warden Talks Prime Masters, Rodimus Prime, Optimus Primal, and More!

Infodump time! Hasbro's John Warden talks Power of the Primes, and boy is the Power of the Primes gimmick a doozy, integrating with each size-class in different ways. He also mentions an incredibly cool feature that Rodimus Prime - and presumably all the Leader class figures - will contain. Keep reading for video and info!

The Prime Masters embody power of the gods, the sparks of the Primes themselves, whose Hot-foil-stamped emblems are imprinted on them. The Prime Masters pricepoint includes Decoy Suits - essentially mini-Pretenders. Skullgrin hides the spark of the Liege Maximo!

The Legends class will seat Prime Masters just as it did Titan Masters

The Deluxe price point will include armor that allows the characters to mount Prime Masters to their chests in quasi-Breastforce fashion. Voyagers will have a similar feature, described as a "Buckler" mounted on the arm - what's better for blocking an attack than the soul of a god, we guess?

Leaders each come with their own unique Matrix, which can mount any Prime Master. Each Leader will have a second gimmick of "watching mortals become Primes." In this case: Rodimus Prime has a Deluxe-sized Hot Rod figure that combines with the trailer to become Rodimus Prime, G1 Powermaster Optimus style! Optimus Primal, the Fans-Choice Winner, will feature the same gimmick.
