So I opened up Micronus ... yep, he came packaged with one inside. I'd completely forgotten this sort of thing happened.

Am I the only one that checks every single Prime Master they come across to see if it's a double?

When people started reporting this happening I was "Yep! I'm going to do that"

Then weeks of waiting turned into months and it turns out I can only store so much pointless information in my head at a time.

Was hoping for cartoon decos, at least for Hun-grrr & Abominus' faces. And no stickers.

Yeah, spotting the differences between the companies was fun. I was kind of looking forward to adding the Terrorcons to the Rebirth beasts but now I'm undecided. Leaning toward no. Five Transformers more, five less what's the difference? Might be worth waiting for Takara to return to form. Or save the resources for MPs. :-D

Yup, specifically the clear plastic canopy. Unlike the Stunticons the Moonracer mold's legs do not retract or shorten, so they're just folded back with the foot plugging into a hinged peghole inside the canopy. Snarl kinda has the same thing in his legs for arm mode, except it's all opaque.

Anatomically speaking, both are correct depending on where the knee and heels are located. PotP is in line with digitigrade movement (at the expense of having no upper leg) meaning he walks on his toes, while G1 is plantigrade using the whole foot instead.

Found Rippersnapper today at Walmart. he is an awesome toy. It's just odd. I have not seen any wave 2 en masse. Its always one left here-and-there. I guess I should just be happy I'm seeing anything at all.

I've found them in groups a couple times, but never a Moonracer. I have no idea why Hasbro shortpacked her instead of one of the others that will be re-packed later on. :HEADHURTS:

"Girl characters in boy's toy lines don't sell", that's what they want us to believe. :( On that note, I may or may not get her if I find her, I'm already dedicated to the Dinobots and Dreadwing, I don't need another group to complete :lol:

Yeah, I've instructed my family (my son in particular), that if he sees any wave 2 deluxes at a time when I am not with them, go for Moonracer and Blackwing first because they are the short packed ones.

You should be happy, these have not been found outside the US much. I don't think I will see them until April, the time when they were planned to be on shelves.

Some funny musings about Power of the Primes: given the 'Leader Evolution' gimmick and some saying it would have fit Star Saber very well (I certainly agree) and given that Victory was that moment in Japanese G1 where you could really see what would become the Brave Series this got me thinking the following: that it's a shame Transformers toylines nowadays don't have an attached anime like Unicron trilogy did.

Can you imagine how both silly and flat out badass it would have been to see a Brave-style transformation for Orion Pax or Hot Rod? Sure, people would have whined that 'it's not how Primes work' but you know it would have been a visual treat at the very least.

In particular, I find Rodimus to be the most Brave-ish of the Leader Class molds. He reminds me of the likes of Exkaiser or Da Garn.

For those wanting a cartoon-colored Abominus, know that POTP Abominus's head is actually molded in maroon plastic, with the gray helmet simply being paint. So if one were feeling ambitious enough, one could strip the head of its paint, thereby exposing the helmet's natural maroon plastic color, and then one could go back and paint the face gray and the eyes red to get that cartoon-based look for at least just the head.

Just a little guide guys:

If you have Starscream/Elita-1 from their jet modes, you have to flip the arms to hide in order to get a proper jet mode, the combiner ports acts as the thrusters. Instructions doesn't have this so Starscream and Elita-1 are mistransformed for some reason. :CON: :lol:

Spiked fist, is he an alternate for Volcanicus? Sort of want a combiner team of him, Grimlock, Hot Rod, Kup, and Wheelie now.

Seems to be a bit of a pin head thanks to his horns, but overall I like the way he turned out.
