Wave 3 is scheduled to hit stores in summer so don't expect these to hit the US tomorrow. We thank westjames/notirish for sending this news out way.


LOL. My son was just asking yesterday about wave 3. I told him wave 2 hasn't even reached full saturation yet (even though we have seen them a couple times at Target). The full release, I'm hoping still is a few weeks away. On that note however, a couple of my local walmarts have received NEW shipments of wave 1 deluxes. you really can t repack wave 1, I imagine the contents are the same. I just hope these don't shelf warm preventing wave 2 from being fully distributed.

Also, I'm not sure this is a good or bad thing, but in times past, high profile YouTube toy reviewers would pay exorbitant prices from Asian distributors, mostly on eBay, to get these toys months ahead of us *regular folk*. Now I see them mostly getting them around the same time as myself (in some rare cases even after me... ;) ) .

We still need Deluxe Sludge, Snarl, and Moonracer (My son has seen them once). Also looking for the wave 2 PM's, haven't seen them at any local retailer anywhere.

Damn....wave 3 already in one of the most remote countries on earth smh. Wave 2 is almost non existant in some of the largest cities in the US. I only found Rippersnapper. At this rate Easter Island will start getting figures before us too...

No argument here, I never thought it was TBH. However...One would think, since Hasbro's HQ is based in the United States, and the company originated there, although they service *globally* now, that the toys would be made first available in North America. I was thinking of comparing toys distribution to Hollywood Movies. A lot of effort has been made in the last decade or so, to make more and more films day-on-date (meaning most of the world gets a new film on roughly the same day). I know its not perfect yet, but its getting there. I know to do the same for toys would be extremely difficult, but I think Hasbro could do better. Equality is great. Get the thing everyone wants, TO everyone who wants it at the same time, make everybody happy :DANCE: , except the scalpers, but then, we don't want them to be happy.

New POTP Packaging Images with Bio and Giza Reveal for Nemesis Prime and Art for Wreck-Gar

PostPosted: Fri Apr 13, 2018 10:44 am

We know there are several Transformers Power of the Primes exclusives coming our way and we now have new images featuring packaging elements for two of them: Deluxe Wreck-Gar and Leader Nemesis Prime. These images come from the TF-Factory Weibo account.

For Nemesis Prime, we get a look at his partner, Giza, whi is a bird that transforms into his sword. This is another reference to yet another Nemesis Prime, in this case the one from the Prime line which had a transforming sword partner with the same name (although it was a shark, and not a bird).

We also get the (slightly obscured) bio which tells us that this Nemesis Prime is simply an evil clone of Optimus Prime. For Wreck-Gar, we get the character art that will appear on his packaging.

You can see actual images of these previously revealed toys here and here.

Was TF: Prime - Nemesis Prime a :TAKARATOMY: exclusive? That is the only one I can find online, I cannot find any reference to a Hasbro release...

Yes he was. There were quite a few exclusive toys from TT in he Prime line. Its probably the most infamous line for TT exclusives. And each of their toys deluxe and up came with partner transformers model kits that were all exclusive to TT.

I was LITERALLY just about to tweet about how it's about time to get some information on Wreck-Gar.

I'd like to see Special Edition Prime Masters with both. Maybe get second versions of each Prime Master with "Exclusives" and Predaking. if we could get each of the Takara-versions of the Technobots as exclusives, each with Exclusive Prime Masters and POTP Hand/feet, that would go a long way for getting a better Hasbro Computron that also matches Abominus AND brings us closer to a special-edition set of Prim Masters

I'd love to have a whole G2 set. Defensor got left out of the G2 sets, and is getting left out of Earth Wars too. He's SO underrated... [-(

Good to know, thanks. I love the Prime animated series, but never got any of the toys, well except the Legion Abominus set when it was at Target on clearance. THIS was unknowingly my precursor to see if my son could handle more complex toys, and in some ways I think Hasbro prepping me for the line I love to come. ;).

You can add me to the list of those lamenting the lack of a G2 Defensor. Also, I don't play the mobile app game, but are no other characters being added? How do we know there will be no Defensor?

Well, this should put all the conspiracy theories to rest, finally, about Power of the Primes Nemesis Prime and Wreck-Gar either being hoaxes or Russian exclusives. I've got a feeling we may be getting quite a number of exclusive PotP figures before we roll into "War for Cybertron (part deux)."

It might make it more clear for fans to label the Takara version of Prime by their toyline's tagline "Arms Micron," to differentiate it from the Hasbro releases of those molds.

Thanks for that. I had a feeling it was Jazz, but I wasn't sure if he was supposed to be in Wave 4 and I was misremembering what I had read months ago. Here's hoping the Jazz in Wave 3 has been modified to be "MAGA-less."

I'd love a proper G2 Defensor set too, but we may have to settle for getting it piecemeal as double homages, such as we have so far with PotP Inferno homaging G2 Hot Spot in torso mode and PotP Wreck-Gar homaging G2 Groove in limb mode. The ideal for me, though, would be to release a proper G2 Defensor set alongside a redux of the G2 Bruticus set, using the space shuttle mold instead of the jet for Blast Off and applying the correct G2 Decepticon faction symbols to the figures as well. Seriously, how did Hasbro get that right initially and THEN screw it up on the third G2 set? Unbelievable.

There is no such thing, each site is run independently. Essenially we want to share everything relevant with the community. If Hasbro tells us to ake it down, then we will. But essentially, anthing posted online for all to see is fair game.

The bird is called Giza? After a sawshark Arms Micron? Me thinks they got a bit confused with the pets there, as the only bird associated with a Prime would be RiD 2015 Aerobolt:

Looks just like the leaked images that supposedly pointed to Blastoff getting a release using Takara's shuttle mold, a leak that has yet to be backed up in any way.

You'll pardon me if I don't get excited about this. I-)
