That Wreck Gar looks way better than he has any right to be, being a simple repaint of Unite Warriors Groove with new head. The color layout isn't particularly faithful to the original toy OR his G1 cartoon appearance. He's missing a lot of the classic "Wreck Gar" elements in his silhouette like the "perky" chest nubs/gun barrels and the asymmetric use of alt-mode kibble. About the only thing is that the chosen color pallet is pretty much correct, even if the colors are not all in exactly the right places. Somehow, though, it still works beautifully. He's still not going to replace my Transformers United Wreck Gar on my display shelf, but he will be a great limb for one of my combiners. Now, I just have to figure out which gestalt he will help complete.

Thanks for the heads up! I don't use Amazon often, but I still need all those figures except Blackwing.

Transformers Power of the Primes Amazon Exclusive Nemesis Prime Now Arriving

If you've been confused about the availability of the Power of the Primes Nemesis Prime figure, you're not alone. He's popped in and out of availability for preorder on Amazon's U.S. site where he's set to be a Prime Day exclusive, and some people have even been able to place preorders, with delivery expected on Prime Day, which falls on July 17th this year.

Then, to add to the confusion, notice was received from Amazon by those who'd ordered him, that he'd be shipping and arriving earlier than that, on July 11th.

Image

Well, either Prime Shipping is just that good, or Prime Day has come early, because fellow Seibertronian yours truly (Bounti76) received the sought after figure on the morning of Monday, July 9th!

Below are a few pictures showing him in hand, including the packaging he came in, which is slightly larger than the standard Leader Class box from the POTP line, as well as comparison photos with Combiner Wars Toxitron, who uses a headsculpt originally intended to be Nemesis Prime in that line before the decision was made to turn it into Toxitron.

And so the saga continues! Have any of you who were able to preorder him received your Nemesis Prime figures? Please let us know, and hopefully, those who still want the figure will be able to pick him up on Prime Day.

Glad you got yours Bounti! Haven't opened mine yet but was very happy to have him arrive this early. I'd assume more people will be getting theirs this week before Prime Day
Things are so organized between Amazon and Hasbro...;)

I'm rather pleased as well. I passed on the regular Leader Optimus in POTP, so this is my only experience with this mold. Other than the feet being kind of hard to pose, he's very cool looking- I'm a pushover for a Nemesis/black Optimus deco.

And yes to the organization for this. POTP distribution for the entire line can best be described as a hot mess. :lol:

Official Images for Transformers Generations Prime Wars Repugnus and Punch / Counterpunch

PostPosted: Tue Jul 10, 2018 8:17 am

Did any of you want to wait until SDCC to finally see what Repugnus and Punch / Counterpunch were goint to look like? Well for those who couldn't wait, we have some images for you. And not just some blurry pics or part of the leg, but full on official images of the toys (and not renders either). These were uplaoded to the internet by Squigsquasher and also Tweeted by General Tekno.

As presumed, Repugnus shares the Twinferno and Grotusque mold with some remolding of his own. He does end up similar to several digibashes of the past year but with a much more prominant head, as we would hope.

Punch / Counterpunch is a true enigma since not only is it a new mold but while he represents the Power of the Primes portion of the Prime Wars, he does not appear to be able to combine. He does come with a special edition clear Prime Master.

These should be amazon exclusives and we will be sure to tell you when they will be available for order.

Enjoy the images!

I'm both impressed and letdown at the same time. Impressed that they both look really good, mold-wise (save for Repugnus's unsightly abdomen). Letdown because Punch isn't a combiner and Repugnus looks like his robot head has no paint.

And couldn't the photographer be bothered lift up Punch's helmet to show his eyes for both of his robot modes?

Why does that matter ? I am glad because I think a lot would have been comrpomised if he was (see previous Punch combiner).

Gotta admit. I'm impressed by Punch. Maybe because I was just expecting a hokey repaint.

Repugnus is sadly along the lines of what I was expecting although it's still nice to complete the trio.

I agree. As cool as it would be for him to be a combiner, I'm fine with leaving it out if it means that his individual robot modes aren't compromised by the peg.

I'm glad Punch isn't another pointless combiner. The car and Autobot modes both look good. And the only combiners I want moving forward are REAL ONES. Seacon's, Takara version of LioKaiser, Trainbots and Monstructor. I'd give DJD set that combines a pass (if done right) but that's it! I don't need 5 or 6 Bumblebee's merging to become Bumbleslator to singlehandedly kill Unicron.



Repugnus looks completely bad. So unless it ends up with a clearance price somewhere I'll skip it.

Because I had a whole plan set up for all of the CW/UW/Potpie combiners, and Punch would have been a limb in that plan. Without him, it means I gotta do some serious reshuffling for a good number of other limb bots.

Yeah, he was gonna be a limb for Elita Infin1te. But now I can't do that, so I gotta swap out one of the CW Autobots to give to her and then replace that one for a different CW limb to give to the CW combiner(s) who would lose (a) limb(s).

Punch/counterpunch looks great! Glad he is a new mold, and executed right too!
Also, i predict this will be repainted into pointblank in the future.

Before this was announced, I grabbed Combiner Counterpunch because I needed a Punch for my shelf and this was better than nothing.

Still, I can pretend he's the original Counterpunch, before Punch stole his identity.

Punch looks pretty good, I love the car mode especially.

Repugnus is derpy but he should be- his original toy was hilariously adorable (especially considering his bio). A bit annoying that he and Grotusque are exclusives but if I can get them (and Twinferno/Doublecross) it's be awesome to have a matching trio of Monsterbots. I actually really like them all using the same base mold for some reason. The Headmaster looks a bit weak but I might try and nab the TR version for him.

Repugnus has two heads to choose from and a mini me version of himself as a weapon.

Tell me more of this bumbleslator. I'm very interested. Can he only combine with other bumblebees? Do they have to be from the same continuity or do they all have to be from different continuities. Is he a multiversal agent of kid-appeal and destruction?

I'm thinking his primary color should be yellow, but the chest should be black. Maybe the head should be gold and blue for a goldbug representation? This combiner is going to be awesome! :KREMZEEK:

Or maybe he'll be able to combine with cj, hubcap, bumper, and glyph???

Yes, and I am glad to have it. I'm a bit sad about the new one not being a combiner limb, but now that its not, I don't have to get it. It is an impressive toy to be sure, but I think in truth, its probably something that was planned for TR, but the idea of having a removable head for 2 bots was too complicated so they saved it (or perhaps a precursor to WFC?). My guess is that it may be engineered from some pre-existing TR toy, but I'll leave that for more savvy fans to figure out.

In fact, the more that I think about it, it would make more sense. Punch/Counterpunch would have been a great way to introduce the War For Cybertron line as a SDCC exclusive, if they removed the Prime Master, there would have been no pre-existing expectations of being a combiner limb.

So basically now we will have 3 Voyagers (Starscream, Elita-1 and Inferno) with 2 limbs each. So here's to hoping that we get at least 6 deluxe limbs in WFC to finish those off, then all the other deluxes can be new original bots (we know Mirage and Impactor at least are coming) that don't have to be bound to any specific gimmick.

Well I'm down for these. Especially Repugnus. I had a hunch that mold would work out just fine. At least to my own liking.

GOOD NEWS! There is a much better painted Repugnus head out there!

Edit: Where do you guys think the TM rides in Bug-Monster mode? The head? The chest?
