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.

There is always the option that they just don't like the new versions, you may think their reasons aren't valid but it's their opinions. Just take solace that less people who want predaking makes it easier to snag him ;-)

Prime Masters are primarily styled after the inner robot of the shell they come with, you can see that with Metalhawk, Cloudburst, Skullgrin, Submarauder and Octopunch. Their retools Landmine, Bludgeon (both from Metalhawk), Waverider (Cloudburst) and Bomb-Burst (Skullgrin) keep the chest of their progenitors at the very least.
Onyx Prime doesn't seem to be based on a Pretender from what I can tell, so chances are he has no shell to speak of, or it's a very obscure one. He may never have been meant for the regular Prime Master Class.

Maybe because everything about them looks terrible... From their hideously, over-blocky beast modes, to their hampered bot modes, all the way to the anorexic combined mode (which somehow manages to look even worse now in that three-quarter view)

Razorclaw shoulda been a chunky ultra/leader class figure [-(


There's nothing wrong with these, they look great. People are too f-in picky. You all expect 3rd party looks for Hasbro pricing.


All of that, plus nostalgia goggles. Seriously, take a look at the side-by-side comparisons shots of the G1 Predacons and Predaking compared with this modern redo. Anyone pretending the originals were somehow less blocky, better proportioned, or better sculpted, is lying to themselves because reality doesn't stack up to their unreasonable expectations. The ONLY thing the G1 figures were compared to these new figures is better armed.


Encore predaking circa $60 on sale.
This one circa $200 i am assuming

Onyx honestly looks like he was instead based directly off of the Binder of Revelation design for himself, Onyx Prime (hoofed feet, clawed hands, bird-mask head, multi-layered torso/shoulders with triangular features, etc.) instead of a preexisting Pretender's inner robot.

^ Well... yeah. That goes without saying. IDW just used (and at times misinterpreted) the Binder design.

I have still not seen a single power of the primes toy in an actual shop yet - which is a bit odd. But then it wasn't like there was a lot about during the Titans Return era either.

I hate it when you ask in a toyshop and they say they only sell Transformers toys when a movie is out - like they don't even now there are toys the rest of the time.

----

Oh and is there a thread for this board where people post things like coupon codes, sales and the like ?

I did a search but nothing obvious popped up. Or do people just mention it under the general topics - like that HTS sale from a few weeks ago ?

Just thought i'd ask as it just crossed my mind. (sorry if this is the wrong place to ask - there didn't seem to be an obvious place to ask).

It's a bit of an awkward place, but we have a Steal of a Deal thread in the Sightings Forum, where discounts, sales and good deals are shown off.

Weapon: Mace
Finally got the Battletrap duocons! I had to pay full price. 30$CAN total is quite expensive for two scouts. But eh, inflation and shiet.

So, how they hold up?

Individual bot modes are fantastic. They are TIGHT, colorful, and well made. It's fun to get some :HASBRO: stuff without QC issues for once.

Image

The vehicles are good enough. A bit of sacrifice for the combined mode I guess. The car have a weak back and the copter have a very messy side. Still, they look good enough and do the job. I especially love the fact that they are about the same size as the original G1.

Image

The combined mode is MAGNIFICENT. It's pretty solid, posable, great looking, and amazingly cool. The G1 original look like an embryo next to the POTP update.

Image

My only true complaint is the lack of a gun. I would have like both bots to come with a gun that combine into the double-barrelled gun for the big bot. A missed opportunity. Oh well... I'll just have to make one I guess.

In the end, do I regret having paid full price? Oh HELL NO! I'm telling myself it would have been a lot worse. Like missing out and having to pay double or triple on the secondary market. See the duo in store? GRAB 'EM! ;)^

You're not kidding about G1 Predaking being better armed. I bought the reissue a year or two ago & he came with a decent sized bag of guns & swords. He is actually sitting on a shelf with my Unite Warriors Menasor, Bruticus, & Grand Galvatron, so for anyone looking for a version of Predaking that will scale better with your other combiners....he may be an option worth looking into.

The Nonnef upgrade pack is good for weapons too. Small blaster, double barreled blaster and a new blade that can be used as a sword.

I'm hoping that Hasbro will be selling Onyx separately somehow. This is an expensive set to buy just to complete the Prime Master set.


I can guarantee one hundred percent they will not sell Onyx by himself, it's like one of those 300 dollar lego sets that has a really cool exclusive figure.

Ohhhhhh i hate those sooooooo much! :-x

It's a special edition version, onyx will be getting a retail release, it'll just have different colors

Yep, if it was our only chance at the guy they would be calling him an exclusive instead of a special edition the same way they're calling the clear Megatronus that comes with Blastoff a special edition.

Single Megatronus should look like this:
Capture.JPG

The core should be orange without the yellow paint and with a pink-ish symbol and no black outline. The bot mode should have black arms like in the art and like how all Prime Masters' arms match their upper legs.

Doesn't mean there'll be a wave 4 of Prime Masters in PotP, they could be held over to wave 1 of War for Cybertron, it wouldn't be the first time we've seen lines mix.

I was looking at this last night on TFWiki. It's definitely different from the other Prime Masters, not just in design, but as I mentioned before his parts are odd for being all orange except for his upper legs which are black when all of the other PMs have their head, upper legs and arms match.

So, wild theory, what if they based his shell off something bestial, but still humanoid like Oilmaster?

Image

The orange and black would actually work. They can do the back in black plastic, the front in orange and paint it up in silver, brown, and gold to get the colors right. The weapon can resemble a bird or something to give the Double Pretender vibe.

Are you just trolling at this point? The Terrorcons have "monster" alt-modes. They get away with the way they look because they're not trying to be real animals as much as "monstrous abominations." TR Wolfwire is awesome, but isn't a combiner. There aren't any combiners so far in the Studio Series line either, and Grimlock is the only character with a beast mode, except for the non-transformable Scorponok figurine that comes with Blackout. Grimlock's beast mode is also more fantastic than faithful to a real animal, being a metallic and stylized dinosaur skeleton. So how do these things, in your mind, "prove Hasbro can do beast combiners right?"

Also, it doesn't matter if you didn't discover the original Predaking combiner until after G1. That was still your first exposure to the character and original toy, even all the way into the 2000's. You're viewing something older with undue preference over something more modern. THAT is nostalgia at work.

ugh, Octopunch... man... Cruddy design and just a yellow circle for where yet more disappointingly crappy misuse of the Pretender characters. Toyhax could probably make a sticker of a black circle with some white teeth showing I suppose but then would have to be part some larger sticker set to make it worthwhile them doing. Maybe I'll have to wait another 30 years or so before Hasbro attempt something good and progressive with the concept. I'd like them to work like this thing which manages to do the Pretender type concept but with high articulation TWICE OVER. http://bravefortress.com/gallery/soul-o ... -baikanfu/

Already said several times how I feel about that blocky crud that is the Predacons so won't bother again except I kinda just did very briefly but yeah.
I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean offense to anyone. Just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Bayverse, Marvel UK G1, Geoff Senior art, '86 movie (more for style/soundtrack rather than Star Wars plot)
Dislikes: Bumblebee movie (lousy rehashed dumb crud), TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron
