If Repugnus is a TR based Deluxe, he will have symmetry with the other two Monsterbots= Win
If Repugnus is a CW/PotP limb, then I'll have an added limb for some combiners that are very much needed= Win

I have no plans to get Shuttle Blast Off since I already have the UW one, but I wonder why a listing for him has been on Amazon for months, but these two just popped up...??


I keep racking my noodle trying to think who P/CP could be a retool of (sad that I can't fathom him being a new mold, right?), but I just had an idea. Big fat what if, but what if he were a retool of TLK Cogman that came with two "Titan Master" style mini figs that represented his two faces? Then they could both ride in the cabin when in alt mode because he was a two seater.

Just speculation of course, but I could go for that. ;)^

I'm confused, because the situation you describe in the beginning pretty much IS what happens at HTS.

Yeah, I think Amazon is the best bet for everyone. International fans can purchase from there and I cant recall a TF amazon exclusive that sold out within hours and never got back in stock.

What other exclusive has Amazon had? I normally only collect what's at retail but I have dived into ordering online.
The tlk Cogman idea for Punch/Counterpunch sounds like the logical(easy) way for Hasbro to go.

Even if Repugnus is a retool of PotP Rippersnapper, there is a chance he'd still be TR compatible. They could retool the combiner post in the chest to instead be a cockpit for a Titan Master to sit inside. Then just put a little Titan Master head port on what used to be the joint of the post, and voila!

A ton. There was that Optimus Primal YOTM exclusive, the TR exclusive Orion Pax, the movie bumblebee 3 pack, One Shall Stand One Shall Fall set, the triple changer platinum set, and they had the previous may mayhem online exclusives (among other retailers). I and many others got their CW deluxe Groove from there.

He's still coming. We have several exclusives now in the works but not available yet:

Nemesis Prime (amazon)
Wreck-Gar (Walgreens)
shuttle Blastoff (Amazon)
Punch/Counterpunch (Amazon)
Repugnus (amazon)

so lots of potential specials here. Most likely not all May Mayhem, but still coming in some form.

I'm also hopeful for the $80 MPM5 Barricade on Amazon.

I really hope they do Punch/Counterpunch justice. He is a figure I really want to see. The club one was a cool idea but I haven't heard much good about the mold, hence why I am still Sideswipeless and CW Sunstreaker is my Sunstreaker.

Cogman would be awesome, if very out of left field. But still totally down for that

a punch/counterpunch is one of the few besides the club exclusive that hasn't had an official update and would like to see something new come out of it but i have a feeling it will be either a combiner limb or a TR deluxe headmaster mold making use of existing molds like we have had before

This right here is a friggin great idea. :-?
We got a repaint of Nitro, so no reason they couldn't work the Cogman mold right into CHUG.
I did the Thunderwing head swap on my Nitro with the Reprolabels set and enjoyed how it came out.
Seems like these 2 were destined to be utilized beyond their original intention.

Good to know the BB toys wont be another separate line. Also, we both agree Movie toys sold terribly, and were overproduced. The only difference is that there were 3 years between AoE and TLK, and there were only 2 years between the previous films, so obviously there was more spillover. Also I think more affirmative clearance was done by the last 2 movie lines to try to get them out of the stores, but like I said, TLK toys are still around. Also the other movie lines had additional assortments even after the movie was long gone, not so for AoE & TLK, those toys were bad enough, didn't need more of them.


Movie toys definitely sold better than you guys are making it sound.

Hasbro Asia Transformers Power of the Primes Volcanicus Box Set

Postby Va'al » Tue May 08, 2018 5:34 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
According to a listing on Chinese online retailer Tmall, there will be a Hasbro Asia box set release of sorts coming for the Transformers Power of the Primes Volcanicus members - meaning that dinobots Grimlock, Slug, Sludge, Swoop, and Snarl will all be collected in one box. Literally.

Going by the imagery in the listing (which prices the set at 1235 Yuan / 193 USD), the figures will be individually packaged and grouped together in a bigger box, sporting some nice Volcanicus art, plus an added notebook featuring the new dinobot combiner and the Power of the Primes logo. Check out the images below, and let us know what you think of this new take on the 'box set' idea in the Energon Pub Discussion Boards!

We know thanks to listings from ACD Distribution that Repugnus and Blast Off won't be exclusive to any one store. They're probably the closest to May Mayhem we're getting in this block of exclusives.

Ah ha! I see what you did there. ;)
I'm sure Counterpunch will double cross more than your fingers.

I'm hoping Repugnus is a TR mold too. I'd think they would retool the same base mold used for Twinferno and Grotusque. I'd be fine with that.
The only other logicall option I could see is a retool of Ripper Snapper. That would be ok, but I'd prefer the TR option.

I share your preference, but it seems unlikely that he'll be anything but a combiner limb. Hasbro has been very strict about not breaking from play patterns in the Prime Wars Trilogy. The fact that Blastoff is apparently coming with a HFG instead of Prime Armor is already a huge deviation from the norm.



He will probably be double crossing my wallet lil.....

Is Blastoff the only one of the Combaticons coming in this line? I have seen or heard nothing about the others myself unless I missed it on the board....

Blast Off is the only one, as he was "the wrong vehicle" back in Combiner Wars, and this is Hasbro's offer to rectify that. The rest of Combaticons will not see a re-release, which is a shame. A perfect opportunity to fix Brawl :lol:

Wow. The idea of Doubleheader with two titan masters is a really cool idea.

We still need to see a Doubledealer cranked out for this line, too. My hopes aren't high, though.

Counterpunch would be fine with a cool "new twist" of two titan masters... but I hope they at least find some figure where you can change the look by flipping front to back. After two flawed versions, it would be nice to have one version knocked out of the park.

I think troop builders are the other missed opportunity for titan masters.... like, Wreck Gar could come with two or three heads or they could be included as an on-the-shelf single pack titan master. The could even do a rolling paint or plastic color change through the wave, or some add on weapons or armor that would change the look of the figure enough to display differently on the shelf and encourage multiple purchases.

Takara found a way to let us troop build sweeps, but I wish we could see that stateside to cut down costs. (That's kind of the point with troop building.)

Funny thing: Rook probably started out as Brawl, as the alternate head of the mold is supposedly that of the Combaticon. It would have seen use as Ironclad, a Technobot and part of the Computron set, with a Legends Afterburner, before Deluxe Groove became a thing. :lol:

I would be ok with Rook as Brawl actually, it wouldn't have been the first time Brawl was an APC:

I hadn't even thought about Jazz. Wonder how his back would look as a chest. Hmmm.

As an aside, I'd love it if they retooled the chest and cranked out: Sideswipe, Red Alert, and G2 Sideswipe. (And maybe Deep Cover and his pal if they're feeling spunky.) Sideswipe is the only Ark member from MTMTE who hasn't gotten a combiner, seems like. (At least the "deluxe" sized crew.)

Actually wait... if they were working on that, maybe they will just use that mold for Punch/Counterpunch... and put it out as a pre-tool for Sideswipe.

I'm holding out hopes for this. Seems like could be best case scenario that's on the table.

As a fan of this form of distribution, I never thought there would be a "Box Set" that did not interest me. But I guess they found a way. The whole point of the "Giftset" idea dating back to the original series, and was reflected well in Unite Warriors, was not only to offer them all for a single price, but to have them display in a unique way as well. Granted Hasbro's Box sets for CW and TR didn't have window boxes, but they were still unique. This is just all the same packaging, just in a fancy Cube. You cannot put the figures back in "display mode" as you could with all the other box sets if wanted. Nope, this is an easy pass for me.

I agree with everything above. And the other BIG downside to this is that it doesn't reduce the overall size of the box. For storage, display, and SHIPPING cost... this is all quite disappointing.

Also sad for those of us who want to round out a Unite Warrior set in matching boxes with nice paintings on the front.

^ Agreed. I posted the notion a while back that some 3P company should create UW styled Window Box packaging for some of these new PotP combiners. I guess using Hasbro's artwork on the front would be problematic, but maybe they just could manufacture the boxes and the inserts and provide a way for fans to print the artwork themselves?
