Are we going to ignore the fact that the prime masters are backwards?

Kanra has some great pics with the two flavors mixed! I've had a lot of fun with the Skullgrins. :)

These pictures are funny. I guess the photographer doesn't know how a suit works. Yes Hasbro employee you go into a suit backwards.

I dont mind and I will tell you why, he does still come with a gorilla alt mode. Its the alt mode of the bigger bot, sure, but at least I can still say I get a gorilla alt mode when purchasing the leader. 2 gorillas is better than one, of course, but we still get a solid 1 :)

Thanks kanra and bod :D great pictures as always...and slightly jealous that you have the original pretenders. When I was young I had one of the ultra pretenders (the ones who hid inside a transformable shell that hid inside a shell of a vehicle which had a feature that interacted with the inside robot), can't remember his name but he had a green vehicle with a gun placement up top, and the inner robot looked a lot like a redco of landmine but had an awesome looking pretender shell that turned into a flying car...thing. I miss him, my parents sold him at a car boot sale without my knowledge.

I only recently hunted these Pretenders down for my collection, and I never even knew he existed beforehand. I am hoping we see the Ultra Pretenders redone somehow....does PotP Optimal count? :RUBSIGN:

Roadblock! Yes that was him!he was fantastic and regularly beat up the good guys (be they other autobots or power rangers or marvel figures :lol:)
As for optimal...I think he's a good take for a pretender of a sorts (inner robot hides in outer shell which can transform on its own and interact with the inner robot in alt mode...just no larger shell for the big monkey mode to hide in)

I think there is potential for a full look into the pretender gimmick, especially if it meant we got a proper monstructor out of it!

I'm definitely hoping for Monstructor! I'm certainly happy to get an update for Abominus, but I'd buy a boxset for Monstructor in a heartbeat.

I'm surprised they haven't announced more Prime Masters...you'd think Diver would be an easy choice for them. :/

To be fair, their whole unpcoming line is pretty much a big mystery. It might contain more prime masters, or it might not. I find it fishy that IDW comics are ending at the same time as the newest toys, and yet, we haven't seen much as to the direction yet..

Considering wave 4 only has one new figure just like TR wave 6 I think POTP is going to be a shorter line.

(The line in general seems rather rushed compared to the other two)

I think he was referring to the war for cybertron line, but I agree with you that PotP has been rushed out of the door. The significance of this though is unknown (other than Hasbro wanting one line to last just twelve months)

Edit: I swear my spelling is getting worse these days

Especially since the decoy armour already exists as that was going to be the Base for grand's pretender shell for grand maximus's lg-ex release, so that means the mold is there for him...

Edit: not sure why the quotes messed up there, fixed for now.

To be fair I don't know what other gimmick they could have gone with after CW and TR, Targetmasters are not really that much of a gimmick with the base figure alone and with how Hasbro accessories usually are I don't think we would have gotten Targetmasters packed in with deluxe figures, Powermasters could have worked but their not that different from Headmasters and also same deal with them being accessories.

Pretenders as they are only particularity work on the small scale. (Not the characters but the gimmick)

I suppose they could have carried on the two themes (like how they have carried on with combiners) so we could of had combiner limbs that were headmasters or something along those lines.

A neat idea actually, reminds me of the TR customs I've seen that do use CW molds as a base.

PotP is finally at Mexican retail, they arrived at the Juguetrón chain, curiously, what arrived was Legends Wave TWO, mosrt likely wave 1 got skipped also, sadly, at insane prices, 29 for deluxes, 45 for voyagers and 14,75 for legends.
I pray that's just because that's an expensive chain and supermarket ones like Walmart or Chedraui will have them for less, I can't keep up collecting with those prices. :BANG_HEAD: :-( :-( :-(

It would have been great if Power of the Primes continued, but I guess we'll see where the brand goes next.

I still really like my Optimal, but if I see the update in-stores, I will probably impulse buy.

Hey look I'm all caught up on the thread again after being behind more or less since I posted my Rodimus Unicronus pics. I know I posted about the Prime Masters at Kroger the other week but I wasn't actually caught up with the thread. Anyway, time for some housekeeping.

I popped my deluxe POTP cherry with Slug when Target had them for sale for $15. I had hoped to find the other figures I wanted at that price but it was not to be, so I gave in after confirming the sale was over and went hunting for the rest. I grabbed Grimlock, Swoop, Sludge, Snarl, Moonracer, and Rippersnapper at various points, as well as Battleslash and Roadtrap, AND the wave 2 Prime Masters on closeout at Kroger the day after Easter. They were $4.50 each, which while only 49 cents below MSRP, is $2.49 less than Kroger's initial price, and also probably the lowest PMs will be for a bit, barring anomalies like the apparent Walmart clearances on wave 1 PMs.

A note about hunting for these Prime Masters: they will be buried in the closeout/clearance section of the store. At mine, it's just two shelf lengths full of whatever crap is damaged, no longer carried, near the expiration, out of package, etc. It's not really organized, so you'll probably have to dig through piles of miscellany or the bins on the bottom shelf, and a week after Easter I can't guarantee somebody else won't have snapped them up by now, but nothing ventured and all. I work overnight and I was able to grab them when they had temporarily tossed all the unsold marked down Easter toys in a shopping cart. Unfair advantage maybe, but I wasn't about to miss this chance.

Anyway, if you're keeping count, I now have all the new wave 2 stuff except Blackwing (I may grab him and Dreadwind down the road as limbs for Elita), Tailgate (gonna pick up a T30 eventually) and the voyagers (still looking). And despite all odds, EVERY ONE OF MY DINOBOTS except Slash have the same Prime card. Here's some pics!
Image
Seriously. Five Quintus Prime cards. You can't make this up.

Image
Who knew the Dinobots were so passionate about seeding life?

Image
Powered up! I don't really like the look of the Prime Armor for display purposes but it is silly fun to do this.

Image
"Welcome.... to Dinobot Park!"

Image
Volcanicus in the official configuration from the instructions. Slash is giving moral support.

Image
My preferred configuration. and some Prime Master fun.

Image
All my POTP stuff so far


I know i was super skeptical about Grimlock from the pictures, but having him in hand, his problems just don't seem to matter. His tail doesn't bother me all that much, his dino proportions aren't so bad, his torso mode is (mostly) good..... except for those legs. He tries to do a Motormaster split but doesn't have the locking tabs so there's not a certain position they fit just right at. Also similar to Motormaster, I think Grimlock's hip ratchets are not aligned to each other. I can't seem to get his legs to even out. Has anybody else experienced this? I'll probably keep them in Dinobot mode most of the time, but Volcanicus does look good.

Moonracer is pretty good as well. I love how she looks in robot mode, her backpack is a bit unwieldy but it's ligthweight and her feet are big so it's not that big a deal. I noticed that using her prime armor was starting to hip the paint on her chest, so I'm not doing that anymore. It ruins her figure anyway. I'll also never use her as a leg, as others have said. I don't trust that connection. And this got asked about 10 pages ago, never responded to. Does anybody know what those tabs on the underside of her alt mode are for? I can't find a purpose and they affect her ground clearance.

Lastly, I may be in a minority here, but I don't think Battletrap is all that. The helicopter landing gear/Batleslash's heel spurs mean he can't hold Prime Master weapons, the primary feature of the line. His combined leg articulation is hindered by Roadtrap's arms a bit. The helicoptor rotor just sitting on the back is a shame. Roadtrap definitely feels like the weaker of the two, his arms can't move as much as I'd like in robot mode, and his vehicle mode is the front half of a truck and the chest of a robot. Kinda laughable. Maybe I'm just not quite getting it because I have no nostalgic attachment to Battletrap, I dunno. They're nice but I feel like $20 was too much for two tiny dudes that essentially become a deluxe. Then again, I think $10 is too much for Legends in general. I'd be more amenable to $8, but what can you do.

So yeah. I bought one and then one thing led to another and now my POTP collection has rapidly expanded and I don't even mind that much. Bring on Elita and the rest of the terrorcons!

FYI ... I accidentally clicked "edit" on your post instead of quote, hopefully I restored your post as best as I could!

I feel the same way. I keep telling the brand team that I want Pretenders. They probably think I'm crazy. But I really want to see the Pretenders done with modern toy technology, whether it's the traditional concept for with a modern action figure type "shell" with inner robot, or with an "inner" robot that can transform into a vehicle AND becomes armor to upgrade the action figure "shell" character (in lieu of fitting in an actual shell). I really don't care about the robot actually being able to go inside a "shell" as long as the robot somehow can "hide" away by either integrating inside of the shell or by becoming an upgrade set for the "shell". I quoted the word "shell" because I'm referencing the humanoid shell character/figure versus the inner robot character/figure.

I think someone will come up with an exciting way to redo these characters at some point that will honor their heritage properly. The Pretenders really struck a chord with me on many levels from their introduction in the comics, to being the first mainline concept to be excluded from the Hasbro cartoons (excluding Mini-Spies and Decoys), to just really inspiring me as a kid. I loved playing with them and I loved having 2 toys in one. I even used to count them as 2 separate Transformers in my figure count when I was a kid. My mom wouldn't let me spend my Christmas and birthday money on Fortress Maximus, but she let me buy all 6 of the wave 1 Autobot and Decepticon Pretenders. While I was disappointed with not getting Fort Max, I loved playing with my Pretenders as a kid. Imagine my joy 7 years later in 1995 when I discovered Masterforce thanks to a bootleg VHS dealer at a comic convention!

FYI ... I accidentally clicked "edit" on your post instead of quote, hopefully I restored your post as best as I could!

I feel the same way. I keep telling the brand team that I want Pretenders. They probably think I'm crazy. But I really want to see the Pretenders done with modern toy technology, whether it's the traditional concept for with a modern action figure type "shell" with inner robot, or with an "inner" robot that can transform into a vehicle AND becomes armor to upgrade the action figure "shell" character (in lieu of fitting in an actual shell).

Ya that could work really well. It could be done kind of like the R.I.D(2015) Battle Pack large figures, but with real armor this time not like the "armor" they came with.
And that is a very sad, but sweet story (wipes away tear from eye)
