Loopaza on Facebook has shared out an early retailer listing once again for upcoming TakaraTomy Transformers goods coming in a few months' time. Thanks to that, we now know what September will be bringing us in the Japanese release of Power of The Primes. Not quite as exciting as Legends reveals, since all of the product now will be virtually identical to the Hasbro releases, but at least if nothing else it might offer collectors a bit of a "safety net" in case distribution issues make it hard to find the domestic product.

ENI is on the ground at Toy Fair 2018! We are current waiting on the Hasbro product team to begin their New Products preview that is sure to include news about Transformers and much more.
Stay tuned for updates as they happen from the event. Keep checking back, we will be posting updates and images as soon as they are available.
It's "Find Power of The Primes Wave 2 In Stores" Day in the US, from the look of things. Already today we had our first in store sighting of Prime Masters wave 2 at Meijer locations in Illinois. Stepping that up, we've got confirmed sightings of Legends wave 2 at a Walmart in Ohio, which includes Battleslash, Roadtrap, and Tailgate. But we also have the first sighting for Voyager wave 2, which manages to be our very first real look at Elita-1. Elita and Hun-Gurrr were found at a California Walmart.

Continuing the trend of the second wave of Power of the Primes
Legends hitting Europe before North America, UK retailer Global Comics has announced that the figures are in stock! Battleslash and Roadtrap combine to form G1 Duocon Battletrap, and Tailgate is the second, less IDW-derived modern take on the G1 Windcharger remold. Keep reading for more details!
Battleslash is built more solidly in robot and vehicle mode than Roadtrap
, and has more steps in its transformation. ...but that transformation is designed more than a little annoyingly, the vehicle mode doesn't great, and the Prime Master seating is even more of a joke than Roadtrap. Find out more about all of these things, and which remade Duocon I like better: click here to watch the video review of Battleslash!
I've been complaining of late that Generations has lost the imagination it once had, falling back on simply remaking, instead of reimagining
. That is most certainly not true for the newest interpretation of the G1 Duocon Battletrap, who has been split to become two separate, new characters who combine with each other. As the (admittedly unwitting) answer to my challenge, I just had to try to score these legends figures early, and so here we are today looking at the first part of the pair, Roadtrap. Does he have a leg to stand on? Watch the video review of Roadtrap
and find out!
Here's yet another gallery that isn't from Hasbro Australia - now, wasn't it worth not letting them premiere these? This one is from Clement Soh Photography on Facebook, which we've mirrored here. While Battleslash has some proportional compromises for combined mode in the form of some biggish legs, Roadtrap looks very nice in his individual mode, and the combined Battletrap form is quite dynamic. Keep reading to see!
Following up from the earlier report of the first appearance of Power of The Primes Legends Wave 2 at retail in Singapore, Planet Iacon's N' Raid Raptor has posted a few photos showing the combined Battletrap form of new mold Legends figures Battleslash and Roadtrap alongside a few other toys mostly for purposes of scale reference. The pictures also give a nice overview of the redesigned Duocon from the front, side and back, and the overall result looks pretty good! You can find the new photos below.
Recently, Hasbro Australia had to decline to show off Power of The Primes Legends wave 2 at a fan meet event, by request of Hasbro's home office here in the US who had different plans for revealing those toys. But it turns out that decision wasn't entirely in their hands. Via Singapore retailer Robo Robo and Raid Raptor on Planet Iacon, we have photos of the new figures, which includes Tailgate, redeco/retool of Windcharger, and new molds Battleslash and Roadtrap representing the Duocon Battletrap. We have the photos mirrored below. Keep reading to check out the brand new toys!

TFW2005 user Mr. Chaos
