UPDATE: POWER OF THE PRIMES LEAKED - An Entire Year's Worth Of Toys Prematurely Revealed: Abominus, Dinobots, Titan Predaking!
RAC - Monday, July 24, 2017

UPDATED with more slides! In the single largest leak we've yet seen out of Weibo, the entire first four waves of Power of the Primes have been leaked. We've got a Dinobot Combiner, the Terrorcons, a glimpse of the next Leader Optimus Prime, and much more! Keep reading for a list of what's here and why we're pretty sure it's all real! The waves are given release dates that correspond to pretty common Hasbro drop times - December 1st, April 1st, July 1st. On top of which, the Prime Masters all follow the patter of Skullgrin with the Liege Maximo pretty exactly. We're also told that the symbol for Vector Prime, which fans figured out yesterday matches the one on this Prime Master For this all to be faked, someone would've had to know all that long enough in advance to do some amazing custom work and Photoshop wizardry.

On top of which, the name superimposed over the shots does correspond to that of a current Hasbro employee - and we send our condolences to him because this is surely not his fault. But the information is already out there and we feel an obligation to report what we know.

Interestingly, even these slides, presumably for internal use, do not make mention of the Combination features directly. They do mention each Voyager figure having its own unique "Enigma," which would lead one naturally to the Enigma of Combination.


Wave 1:

MICRONUS PRIME with Autobot Cloudburst
LIEGE MAXIMO with Skullgrin
VECTOR PRIME with Metalhawk

Wave 2
ALCHEMIST PRIME with Submarauder
ALPHA TRION with Landmine

Wave 3

QUINTUS PRIME with Bludgeon
MEGATRONUS with Bomb-Burst
SOLUS PRIME with Octo-Punch


Wave 1

Dinobot Slash

Wave 2

Roadtrap - (It looks as though these will combine into the G1 Duocon Battletrap. -RAC)
Tailgate (We're also not sure about this one, but it appears to be a white figure from the Windcharger mold.)

Wave 3

Outback (Considering this wave is nearly a year off and these images were never meant to be seen by the public, we wouldn't read too much into his still having Brawn's head.)


Wave 1

Dinobot Slug, AKA Slag
Dinobot Swoop
Autobot Jazz

Wave 2

Dinobot Snarl
Dinobot Sludge

Wave 3:


Wave 4

Novastar (G1 Female Autobot Firestar)


Wave 1


Wave 2

Elita-1 (Who appears to be a Starscream remold, but it's definitely too early to say.)

Wave 3

Inferno (Recolor of Combiner Wars Hot Spot)


Wave 1

Optimus Prime
Rodimus Prime

Wave 2

Optimus Prime (CF) (We don't know what "CF" stands for, as not all the other repacked figures shown in the wave have that designation. But it seems likely it stands for "Carry Forward," indicating these figures are straight repacks from earlier waves.)
Rodimus Unicronus (Presented as a purple-tinted recolor of Rodimus Prime. Hopefully it'll be the black, purple and teal color scheme seen on Lost Light Rodimus. It's probably inspired by the UK G1 comics story where Rodimus Prime contained Unicron within himself to stop him.)

Wave 3

Optimus Primal (Represented here as I hoped: a Deluxe-sized Season one Optimus who then combines with a larger body to become Optimal Optimus!)
Rodimus Prime (CF)


Comprised of five Voyager-sized figures, Predaking also reveals a story point: that he will gain possession of the Matrix of Leadership. It also reveals that one of the figures will come with the Enigma of Combination, which Predaking can store along with the Matrix.

So there we go. This is all apparenly real, and odds are good HasCon, NYCC, and Toy Fair will all contain very few surprises for us outside of seeing the combined forms of the Dinobots and Abominus. Enjoy!

More Generations News
While still what we would consider early in its life cycle, it seems that a running change has already been carried out on the latest member of the generations Starscream family. Jason Rye reported this finding to us, which involves an alteration to how Starscream's wings/backpack connect to the body. The design tweak is said to improve how the jet mode comes together, and may have other benefits as well. You can see a side by side comparison of the two versions of Starscream, find out more detail, as well as get one of the batch codes identified as being associated with this running change below. Keep reading!

Twitter user @GanguStars has posted an image showing two of the shelf-warmingest Titans Return Deluxes - Scourge and Chromedome - marked down to $7! In the case of Scourge this is particularly great news since you can now build the Sweep army of your dreams. As for Chromedome... time to double-check for that running error with the TakaraTomy face again! Keep reading for photographic proof.
Almost a month to the day that Amazon posted listings for the 4.5" three-step Authentics figures, Hasbro has posted official photos and product listings for the 7 inch line on their website! Optimus and Bumblebee look extremely similar to the smaller figures but with extra joints, and here we have the Grimlock that was leaked a while back. Keep reading to see!
After a lot of crazy things happening all in a relatively short span of time, it seems like life is finally starting to settle down, with efforts to smooth tensions between Cybertron and Earth being foremost in Optimus Prime's mind. I'm sure nothing could possibly turn up to get in the way of that! "The Falling, Chapter 1: Surfeit of Primes" written by John Barber, art by Kei Zama, colors by Josh Burcham.

Transformers Authentics, the "evergreen" style simple budget figures that seem to be taking after the Cyber Battalion series now have product listings on Hasbro's website. The first batch including Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Starscream, and Megatron are not yet available for purchase from Hasbro Toy Shop, with their "Buy" buttons leading to error pages. But these listings do confirm the SRP, with prices listed at $4.99 each. The listings include the same images that we saw with the Amazon releases recently. Keep reading for links to the individual pages.
