Transformers Power of the Primes Leaks, Rumours, Reveals, and More

Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff? Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.

And those BW characters that have had figures here and there? *PERSONAL OPINION* I've found them to be lacking compared to the originals.

Virtually all those BW figures released were bloody good figures, yes, even the likes of Retrax. They had articulation, the looked good in both modes ... well except maybe Retax given his robot mode is basically "COME HERE AND LET ME HUG YOU!!!!!!" (Even Japan got in on the joke by recolouring him and renaming him Powerhug!)

The same goes for RiD 2001, another great line.

The Unicron Trilogy however ... dunno what happened there. Some great figures, some incredibly bad figures.

And hey, whose to say that after PotP finishes we might get some figures from older series. Give it a true Generations feel.

Universe 2008 Cheetor was the worst of the bunch, because of the space allocated for the eye changing gimmick, and the proportions favoring the cheetah mode a bit too much. I will say the Generations toys were steps in the right direction from looks alone.

I hear ya there.

And experimental to an extent. Didn't stray far from the trusted Yuusha/Brave formula from a couple years prior, kept the BW Neo "shellforming" for the Autobot Brothers, gave us a brand-new six-, then 10, now 11-changer, and was filled out with redecos and canceled toys. Quite the hodgepodge indeed.

The Unicron Trilogy however ... dunno what happened there. Some great figures, some incredibly bad figures.


Changes in design direction are always hard to swallow, especially when a gimmick takes priority. That has not changed with the non-Generations lines.

Wait 5 to 10 years on that, when Animated, Prime, RiD and Rescue Bots fade into obscurity ;)
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

- Jelze Bunnycat =:3

Looking for:
- TR Furos (Hardhead's head) and Crashbash (lost him :()
- PotP Punch head
- TR Galvatron right arm (the gun one)
- CW Stunticon limbs (Drag Strip, Dead End, Breakdown, Brake-Neck, Offroad or TFCC Grabuge) + Blackjack
- TR Twinferno & Grotusque
- Greenlight, Lancer and PotP Elita-1 (plus repro Victorion hands and feet?)

agreed on these. my childhood was beast wars, not g1. that being said, i do understand that among all transformers toylines, g1 and g2 (before laser series introduced) is the one that needs an update the most, as they are from the era where articulation is still non existent, and the mold of the toy is only barely looked like the characters on the show. laser lines and any newer lines after that actually has decent amount of articulation, and while not perfect, still holds an engineering almost as good as modern toys. so my guess is that they want to gives a proper update to all g1 characters first, and then after all of them are done, then they will properly move to other lines.

john warden is a g1 diehard fans, yes, but i do believe he is also a professional. means if the market really demands a character from other lines, then they will give it. the fact that we got generations rhinox, waspinator, rattrap, and even tankor is a proof.

Was John the design head during Thirlling 30? I seem to remember the design team changed hands around that time.

Regardless, I also hope he'll listen to demand for other continuities when said demand gets high enough. Still gonna be a while before it gets to that point I'm sure, but I have no doubt it will eventually. For now, I suppose we may as well enjoy all the awesome stuff that we are getting in this line, regardless of its origin. Dinobots and Abominus HYPE!

I look at it as a generational thing. Look outside of Transformers and see how much love there is for 80's stuff at the moment.

Why is that?

Because those of us from that era, are now at the age and in the positions to lead creative teams.

It will be interesting to see in another 10-20 years whether BW and/or the Unicron trilogy become a central focus when those who grew up with them take over those lead positions

His first toys, Whirl and Roadbuster, showed up in that line, but he and his team didn't fully take over from Aaron Archer's team until after Thrilling 30 with Age of Extinction.

Which also brings me to another point: Those few remade Beast Wars figures that got mentioned before? Those were all made under the tenure of Archer's team, not Warden's team. Or some of them were Takara initiatives like the old RobotMasters ones or the recent MP Primal and Cheetor. The forthcoming PotP Leader class Optimus Primal toy will be the first and so far only Beast Wars-update toy to be developed and released by Warden's Hasbro team, and is only happening because of a fan poll.

Now that's a damn good idea!


They would be a small bridge from rescue bot fans to chug fans then and they already are known through their tv series and IDW could certainly expand upon them. I'm just surprised hasbro don't see these angles rather than constantly reverting to characters not really seen since g1.


Sign me up for CHUG Rescue Bots.

Heatwave/Hot Spot
Chase/Prowl
Boulder/Rook
Blades/Blades

Salvage/First Aid
High Tide/Broadside
Quickshadow/Jumpstream
Medix/First Aid
Brushfire/Beachcomber
Blurr/Blurr

Etc.


That is my thinking. Would love to see them become more mainstream.
Looking to swap a takara Titan class fortress maximus head for a Hasbro US retail Titan fortress maximus head.

Would alternatively buy a Hasbro US retail fortress maximus head on its own if anyone had one for sale.

Okay, so I've been tossing around an idea in my head based on the most recent leaks of the artwork and packaging.

First off the disclaimer, I know relying on packaging art is shaky at best, but hear me out.

I think Hasbro is using 2 methods on combiners this time around, teams and evolved/enhanced individuals.

For the teams the combined form will have a separate name like Volcanicus/Abominus. For the evolved individuals, the torso will keep their name in combined form.

What really make me this this is the art for Elita-1 and Inferno having Jazz or Dinobots as limbs. If it is an evolved voyager, then they get whatever limbs are coming out in that wave.

For the actual designed teams, they will show all their intended limbs. Take a look at the Abominus drawing with all 5 members. Rippersnapper and Hun-Gurr are coming out before the other 3 limbs, and the other 3 are indicated as available late 2018. It almost seems like they learned from their mistake with CW Superion using Dragstrip as a limb.

This would also mean that technically there are only 2 "teams" so far in the terrorcons and dinobots. (I'm treating Predaking as different since it will be a titan set.) Starscream, Elita-1 and Hotspot would all then be the evolved combiner torsos, without a designated team, and Jazz, Moonracer, Blackwing, etc. would all be independent bots who can be free agents as limbs and combine with whomever.

I actually think taking this track gives Hasbro an out if they want to cancel a wave like they did for TR. This would also give them an easy way to crank out Skywarp/Thundercracker repaints of Starscream without having to give them "teams".

Again, just speculation here, but it actually fits what we've seen pretty well. The real tell will be seeing the artwork on the instructions Grimlock and Starscream. If Grimlock shows the remaining dinobots as his team with the ones coming out later indicated on the packaging like on Abominus, and Starscream's packaging just gives him whatever wave 1 limbs, then I think I may be onto something.

Swoop's still looking fantastic, and Abominus' torso is looking downright incredible.

Elita's torso on the other hand... nnnnngh. That's a bit of a mess. I'll cross my fingers that she's better in hand, and I'm at least liking that detail in jet mode.

Moonracer looks much nicer than before.

Oh, and it's now pretty clear that the Onslaught shoulders on Inferno's art were a mistake. Which in retrospect should've been obvious; that just wouldn't have worked with the ladder assembly in vehicle mode.

On the bright side, it looks like with him we've got a reversal of the CW Legends repaints -- he comes with more accessories instead of less! He's still got the standard guns of that mold but he also of course has the new Combiner feet.

Bummer, Inferno is just a repaint. They didn't even retool part of the truck to make it look more like the classic character. Elite-1...yikes those legs. At least all the other stuff looks good.

If you don't like retools don't buy em and let the others who don't mind such as my self get them.

There will always be retools and repaints for cost reasons and to make sure HasTak gets full millage out of the molds.

I know that, but I can still protest the idea of using a fairly well used mold again in a different line.

And I agree with this. If they were going to use this mold, this would have been more fun. Bring in a rescue bot character into generations (like Blurr in RiD) or even bring in the Shattered Glass Heatwave who formed Nexus Prime. Get a bit more creative

Exactly my thought too. I really like how Abominus looks, though the design really does remind me of the Silverbolt mold. But it's a beast and far different and cool looking, so that is perfectly ok.

Inferno... come on buddy, you can do better!

Look at the pic, they retooled the head to look more like Inferno.

Has Inferno's forearm been retooled to accommodate a Prime Master, or is he holding a combiner foot with the gun plugged into that? I think the later, but what do you all see?

I'm not so curfuffled over the re-release of this mold, and I like the looks of the new head sculpt for robot mode, but I do wish they had given the torso a new combiner head.
