TakaraTomy Power of the Primes Line Begins In May 2018 - Listings & Prices Revealed
RAC - Friday, December 01, 2017

Singapore fangroup Planet Iacon broke the news - and site sponsor BigBadToyStore has just confirmed - that TakaraTomy's version of Power of the Primes begins in May! Titled very similarly as Power of Prime, the figures listed are being released in a format seemingly identical to their US releases. But, what's interesting is what's not listed from Wave 1. Keep reading for details!
PP-01 Micronus, 800 Yen
PP-02 Liege Maximo, 800 Yen
PP-03 Vector Prime, 800 Yen
PP-04 Dinobot Slash, 1500 Yen
PP-05 Wind Charger, 1500 Yen
PP-06 Beach comber, 1500 Yen
PP-07 Autobot Jazz, 2800 Yen
PP-08 Rodimus Prime, 7000 Yen
PP-09 Optimus Prime, 7000 Yen

Compared to the Legends series, these prices are pretty low. As the smaller figures have usually included extras, the easiest point of comparison is a Leader like LG50 Sixshot, who runs a full $15 more on BBTS than the Double Convoy do here. There's a chance, much as we hate to say it, that these could be straight-up Japanese-packaging releases of US toys. The naming conventions being largely identical to the US versions with their trademark considerations - "Autobot Jazz", "Dinobot Slash," would point to this as well.

What's not here is encouraging, though. The Voyagers, and 75% of the Deluxes are not mentioned. That opens a door for a Unite Warriors-style Dinobots boxset that could gain some paint, and also perhaps Dreadwind's being paired with Blackwing/Darkwing as their Japanese counterparts Buster and Hydra. Even if most of PP is just US repacks, interesting times are ahead!

Hobby Search has posted images of the last currently known assortment of TakaraTomy Legends figures! Seaspray with Lione, Topspin and Twintwist all look pretty good, and the Jumpstarter Twins' Targetmaster partners complement their owners' blue and white colors nicely, using the same concept of alternating color schemes with red and black.

Autobase Aichi has published a synopsis of the Transformers news in this month's issue of Hyper Hobby, one of the many hobby magazines published monthly in Japan. While the mechanical translation is typically shaky, it seems as though the Legends series, with its higher standards of deco, will be continuing alongside the Japanese release of Power of the Primes! But there is still a catch - keep reading for details.
Loopaza Mega Store has posted images of the packed-in paperwork for LG-60 Legends Series Overlord! The figure's bio card and (mercifully Safe For Work) comic are on display, showing off the new tooling for the figure's chest and Headmaster robots as well as a new mode created for the comic. ...but, kind of an expensive one.
