Transformers Power of the Primes Leaks, Rumours, Reveals, and More

Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff? Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.

But if it was red, then Takara using the same toys would mean that we would never get an animation accurate blue chest. So I am very thankful Hasbro went blue instead of red.
At the same time, the blue chest is the only thing about the figure's deco that is distinctly cartoon-accurate, while the rest of the figure (particularly the black helmet) is toy-accurate, making the toy's deco an unusual mix of toy- and cartoon-accuracy that is overall accurate to neither.

Maybe :HASBRO: dared to think outside the box but :-$
What most likely happened (based on the stock imagery of the figure) is that Hasbro was originally gonna go with an all-toy-accurate deco (red chest and all), but at the last minute changed only the red chest to show-accurate blue, leaving the rest of the deco's toy-accuracy untouched.

Nope (if it's true what baltmatrix said in his review of Swoop)
I'm not gonna sit and watch that whole video just to search for one thing he said, so just say what he said.

:HASBRO: made an empirical study on kids what they like more: red chest or blue chest.
Guess what was the result ;)

Nevertheless, they rendered Swoop with a red chest in all his stock imagery, and deliberately withheld showing that imagery at the HasCon TF brand panel since it wasn't accurate to the final toy colors, and since they had no official stock imagery that had the blue chest.

He mentioned that either color was focus tested, and the blue deco won out.

by the by, the red chest variant has an additional difference: the beak isn't painted.
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

- Jelze Bunnycat =:3

Looking for:
- TR Furos and Crashbash (just heads)
- TR Ravage and Rumble (the red one)
- PotP Punch head
- CW Dead End, Brawl, Swindle, Vortex, among others
- Spare PotP Volcanicus hands

Bludgeon and Octopunch with I think Solus and Quintus but I'm not sure in two thirds of wave 03.


Thanks for the list. Unfortunately I can only find pictures for Wave 02:

Alpha Trion with Landmine decoy armor:

Alchemist Prime with Submarauder decoy armor:

I think I will get both of them. Landmine makes a great canon and Submarauder makes a good melee weapon. And I like the symmetrical PM symbols. I think combining the power up figures with pretender shells and turning those shells into targetmasters was a very good idea. I'm really loving this line. ;)^

I just wish :HASBRO: wouldn't keep us in the dark for so long. It makes it difficult to plan on a budget. #-o

That said and based on what I know I'm mainly in this for the Dinobots and Elita-1, a few legends class toys and the Prime Masters. So unless there is a major sale on Leader Class Optimus and maybe Primal I'm mostly done with the expensive figures for the rest of the line, just waiting on wave 2.

For those who need a reminder of what G1 Pretenders Octopunch, Bomb-Burst and Bludgeon look like in order:

I just noticed Landmine and Metalhawk share the same arms, rear section and gun. It's hard to be sure but I think Alpha Trion and Vector Prime are the same figure as well.

Just a quick note to put all of this in perspective as well. Blue is the most popular "favorite" color among people. Red comes in at number 2. It's why you find those colors (especially in combination) in so many things, from toys to national flags to cars to corporate logos and even to superhero costumes.

On Monday July 24th 2017 (the day after SDCC), there was a huge leak that basically had CG renders of the entire first 3 waves of the line, as summarized by the posts WJ referenced. The pics cant be posted, but if you do a google search, you can find them quite easily. To date only the first 2 waves have received official toy and packaging images, but I suspect we will get close up looks at parts of wave 3 and Predaking during Toyfare in a few weeks.

Thanks for that. I was more referring to pictures though. Although we do know the Prime symbols, so there is that, too.

my apologies, but I was just trying to speak in generalities. But basically what we got were the names of all the characters from waves 1-3 (and one deluxe from wave 4). Whether represented with a CG model, cartoon model, or toy model, we got the list. We have yet to see any surprises that were not on that list. That is what I am hoping for.

I just wanted to clear that up so Bradimus doesn't get confused because I already stated that he can't find any pictures of wave 03 Prime Masters because there are none so far ;)

Thanks. I got a look at Prime Masters Solus Prime, Quintus Prime and Megatronus. Their PM symbols are also present on Inferno's box. Hasbro did not have images of the decoy armors at that time. Looking forward to the next set of reveals. And a good look at Elita-1's combiner head. I don't why :HASBRO: made that so secret when she's being released so soon. Unless I just somehow missed that picture.

I'm not messing around and I did my research. When we are talking about Prime Masters we are primarily talking about their robot modes and decoy armors but not neccessarily about their symbols/spark modes. And concluding of your questions you haven't been up to date as we are. I just wanted to help you by giving you the missing infos but if you don't want me to do that I'll remember next time I see a post from you.

I'm not messing around and I did my research. When we are talking about Prime Masters we are primarily talking about their robot modes and decoy armors but not neccessarily about their symbols/spark modes.

I'm not wrong. The outlines of the 12 Prime symbols are visible on the side the voyager class boxes, of which I have Grimlock's.

On Monday July 24th 2017 (the day after SDCC), there was a huge leak that basically had CG renders of the entire first 3 waves of the line, as summarized by the posts WJ referenced. The pics cant be posted, but if you do a google search, you can find them quite easily. To date only the first 2 waves have received official toy and packaging images, but I suspect we will get close up looks at parts of wave 3 and Predaking during Toyfare in a few weeks.


Thanks. I got a look at Prime Masters Solus Prime, Quintus Prime and Megatronus. Their PM symbols are also present on Inferno's box. Hasbro did not have images of the decoy armors at that time. Looking forward to the next set of reveals. And a good look at Elita-1's combiner head. I don't why :HASBRO: made that so secret when she's being released so soon. Unless I just somehow missed that picture.


What are you correcting?

At this point, does it really matter? You both seem to understand each other now. Does it really matter who is internet right-est?

And as I said, by Prime Masters we usually mean the robot mode and/or decoy armor, not the symbols. We normally say that in particular when we mean the symbol.

There's a difference between the leaked images and the official toy and packaging images. That's why it's called official and leaked. And in the leaked images have been some pictures of G1 cartoon and toy versions of the characters as placeholders for their new iterations. So I wanted to clear that up.
Now I get the feeling you are messing around with me.

Back to the toys, here is my ranking of all of wave 1:

Optimus Prime
Slash
Swoop
Grimlock/Slug/Dreadwind (tied, like them all, but really can't choose one above the other 2)
Beachcomber
Windcharger
Rodimus Prime
Starscream
All 3 Prime Masters

I intentionally put the 3 prime masters last. I feel they are so simple compared to the other size classes that it really wasn't fair ranking them above even the worst actual transforming figure. That isn't to say they aren't fun, they are, and they help make up for the lack of weapons for Grimlock and likely Hun-Gurr in the future. The biggest thing I look for in a transformer toy is the transformation, so the prime masters lose out based on that alone. I was similar in Titans Return, I couldn't rank any of the Titan Masters above any of the higher classes except for Shuffler/Ramhorn, and that was only because they were exceptional, with 3 great modes. The prime masters don't have the benefit of a 3rd mode to help them edge out any larger classes.

For me, only Starscream and Rodimus Prime are just okay figures. All the rest, I really like. Rodimus will probably grow on me over time, and I still plan on getting Rodimus Unicronus because "need more cowbell, I mean cons". Starscream probably won't get much use, ass I like the CW Leader better for robot and jet mode. I will enjoy torso mode, and my favorite, midget mode.
