Okay, so, I guess I'm fully on holiday vacation and have shut off my brain. After a quick con-fab with WJ88, I get what is being asked. Here are pics and what I would expect you might look for in-package to find any duplicates.

Empty Shell

The way the Pretender shell should appear in package (well, the most common at this point, I guess) is the face won't be showing. There is also a gap between the legs.

20171221_225201.jpg
Full Shell

Here, you can see the face of the Prime Master in the helmet area, and the legs of the PM between the Pretender legs.

And, yes, we are once again staring between robot legs. HASBRO!! *shakes fist*
I also realized that I could provide a couple of pics of the other two pretender shells. Here we go!

Again, here, you may be able to tell either by the red PM helmet in the face area of the Pretender Shell. However...

With Skullgrin, you'll just have to look between his legs...

Check out the clip, and let us know what you think of the new toyline so far! Any pleasant surprises, disappointments, expectations from the first wave, now almost entirely spotted at general retail, with wave 2 revealed and confirmed (see here) - join the discussion in the Energon Pub.

So I got my Ramhorn and Prime Masters from HTS yesterday. Not only did I not hit the lottery of a double PM, But with Cloudburst/Micronus, there was no instruction sheet. Not that those are needed mind you, I just like to collect the ones I get, and its just the principal of getting what you paid for.

Also what's the deal with all the extra tape around the packaging of each figure from HTS??... :???:

(we need a Jerry Seinfeld font) ;)
I am very much interested in Botcon 2016 Customization Class Medix, Shattered Glass Ratchet, G2 Ratchet, and Marvel Comic Ratchet, willing to pay fair price, PM if interested in selling.

I love the Prime Masters -- I originally only got Cloudburst & Metalhawk, since I didn't have their G1 incarnations. But when I saw Skullgrin at TRU, I liked his Liege Maximo "face" and bought him, too.

I'm looking forward to seeing the Decoy armor/weapons attached to some combiners. I'm planning:

Metalhawk + Optimus Maximus
Cloudburst + Superion
Skullgrin + Menasor

And then maybe Landmine + Computron?

Found the Voyagers last night here in Wilmington, NC. Picked up Grimlock but left Starscream because I want to see what Takara does with him before a I decide. I’m hoping Takara gives him a full on Seeker team or a team of Starscreams from other series (unlikely, but the ‘Screamer fanboy in me hopes).
They call me “Tanker Chungus”!

Grimlock was delivered 10-15min after we left for the holidays, but my wife insisted on going back for him.

Pretty happy with him. Put the combiner boots on his forearms and attached the fists to the boots - looks pretty cool that way.

Edit: It's also pretty entertaining that he can store a Titanmaster/Primemaster/Enigma in his Dino mouth.

We have some big news coming out of our friends up north! We have confirmation that the Power of the Primes Leader Class figures have been spotted at a Toys R Us In Broussard, Quebec! While all the other size classes have been spotted, the leader class figures have been notoriously hard to find all around the world. We have some photographic proof, as Well, of the wave 1 assortment (Optimus Prime and Rodimus Prime) on store shelves, from Seibertron reader Daniel on Facebook. Daniel also spotted the wave 1 Prime Masters and Voyager Starscream and Grimlock at the same Toys R Us store! Get hunting, Canadian fans, and let us know down below what you find!

My local TRU finally had some PotP stuff and only Voyagers. Considering this was the size class there was a massive sale of last week I can only come to the conclusion that the rest of the first wave is collecting dust until these shelves are cleared of all the other stuff. And considering how much of it is self-warming RiD 2015 crap and too many TR deluxes and leaders?

...This will take a while. :(

In any case, got my hands on the already-infamous Voyager Starscream. He's not as horrible as I expected him to be, even if its true that his stickers are pretty damn fugly. Maybe its because I've never owned a Starscream figure and am just glad I got one in a size class that scale decently with my Megatron (the TR one). Voyager and deluxes, I've come to realize, really are my preferred size classes for Generations as I find it weird when some characters are blatantly larger than characters they shouldn't be. Leader works fine for huge bots like Overlord, Sixshot or Ultra Magnus but personally I find the Deluxe and Voyager to be my sweet spot both in terms of budget and shelf size.

So, back to Starscream: people say he's hideous and all wrong and an abomination. But is he? Well right now I got him in robot mode and he's not exactly the greatest modern Starscream by any stretch of the imagination. Sadly I've never got my hands on the 'Classics Seekers' mold so this Starscream will have to do. If there ever was a figure which I bought and went 'this will need third party stickers' this will be the one. So final verdict? He's not great and will need some fixing but is he atrocious? No, not really. Plus you can give him a literal dickhead, which is funny in a truly immature way. :HEADHURTS:

The image has big splotches now, and thats the only image any of us would start with. Photoshop cant remove them.
