Okay, so I don't really care much about "to MAGA or not to MAGA", but I am a big fan of irony.

Anyone else find it funny that a reasonable portion of fans are actually hoping for Hasbro to include 1 less paint app?

You picked the wrong topic to get back on track, buddy, because I've never seen a toyline catch so much crap. >:oP

It's a shame the line was so short lived, to the point we might not even see all Thirteen (well, Twelve) Prime Masters.

Prima in particular is the biggest offense because not only it's Prima, you know, the guy who started the very concept which would evolve into the Thirteen Primes but his Decoy Armor being Waverider mean if he doesn't get released then the Autobot Pretenders will be missing a core member.

It's a shame that those figures themselves have almost nothing to do with the actual 13 besides packaging name art and the vague symbol in their core forms.

This was an awesome way to bring the Pretenders back in their new revamped modern figures that homage their roots well.

This was also an extremely lame way to give most of the 13 their first figures that have just about have nothing to homage them.

Awesome? How is making them smaller and adding NO articulation (something virtually every modern update of a G1 character has enjoyed) awesome?

They could have kept them as deluxes, split the shell to fold open around the waist, add articulation, and upscale the Primes so they looked like actual robots instead of transforming boxes.

Hasbro dropped the ball on Pretenders.

I too wished we would have seen the Thirteen with their own mold as Deluxe/Voyager/Leaders but I suppose this is too much for Hasbro to design.

Hasbro dropped the ball on Pretenders.

Or even kept them the same size and just based the Prime Armor ebgineering off Repugnus, who at least has movable legs.

Honestly, i dont think the general market would have supported Deluxe Class Pretenders as the main "thing". Even the Clones are more costly than the DLX pricepoint, and ypu are talking aboyt a comperable size robot and a larger hunk of armor, so I have to agree that the size the Pretenders are is ptobably for the best, not to mention the relative scale they are close to human size for sone Deluxes and Voyagers.but I fully agree they are terribly, horribly exevuted.

Who, Repygnus? Yes. But the Armor concept is the same. Only, instead of being stretched out, you balled the Titn Master up and shoved them into Repugnus chest. It opened up the hips though so the legs could be a single, seperate piece. No reason the Prime Masters couldnt have done the same thing, and designed the chest plate to hinge at the belt instead of the knees. For added effect, you coukd even have left a hole in the bsck of the armor for the matrix plate to stick through, so that instead of attaching te Prime Master to the top of the armor for Gun mode, the Prime master was already integrated.

But what do I know?

Yes, Grotusque is a Titans Return release. He even game with Titan Master Scorponok. The headline will be revised later, I'm sure.

I'm not holding out hope. With more Baybots clogging the shelves, it's looking like NO new PotP's will be seen around here any time soon. :BANG_HEAD:

I'm a little behind on news it seems. Is Wave 4 of Power of the Primes really the final wave?

Yes Wave 4 is the final wave. Novastar is the only new deluxe. No new Leader Class figure. Unknown on the Voyager, Legend and Prime Master classes yet, but doubtful there too.

Would people be happy with mere repaints of the current Prime Masters if it would mean getting the last of the 13?

:APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE:

I want Pretenders done right! Or at least a new common "theme" for them where the "inner" robots can become armor for the action figure "shell" instead of actually being a robot that goes in a shell. I have faith that Hasbro can figure out how to do Pretenders right again with modern toy technology.
