So you're the one responsible for the older versions found in the boxes with that number! :P

Not without drastically altering the mold layout, or making the windows opaque as well.

You and me both my dude. I also want them to use regular white plastic instead of clear. Though that may require them to do painted on windows instead of clear ones so its a trade off.

I would like to know what this batch number thing means and how I can identify it through the package.

That would be preferable really. Not because I think the clear plastic is brittle or anything, but because it doesn't fit. All of the Combiner Wars cars had opaque windows, but then along comes Jazz and Moonracer with their clear windows. Not a big fan of that inconsistency, especially when it seems to be solely so the plug/gun in the combiner hand can be clear (even though Terrorcons have opaque plugs throwing that all off).

Actually, Moonracer's windows don't bother me that much since she'll probably end up next to T30 Arcee and Chromia in a lot of people's collections and they also have clear windows.

You know, my first non-combiner transformer toy I recall getting as a gift, also my first G2 toy, was Jazz. I had a huge nostalgia moment when I saw the clear window

I wonder if everyone that complains about "MAGA Jazz" understands that it doesn't actually say MAGA on the side outright, it's in Cybertronian. That doesn't change the implication, just the effect it has on the figure itself since it's easier to ignore.

The batch number, or production run number is embossed on both the back of the packaging (no real steady place, tho it tend to be on the lower half close to where the warnings and copyright info are) and on the figure itself, usually opposite of the printed product code (PotP figures start with #E****).

That allows the factory to trace what run any figure belongs to, should there be any large-scale problems found, and fix whatever went wrong for a later run. Handy for recalls.

It's not about seeing the letters, it's about knowing they're there. It's a "taint" on the figure, even if it is usually not visible unless you are looking for it.

I still want to know what the designer was playing at, he has the right to whatever political beliefs he wants but did he have to print it on a toy?

Got a sighting from a Seibertronian that goes by the name of g2jazz. G2jazz did some shopping in Germany regarding Power of the Primes stuff hitting their retail!

Price is set at €7,99 (Optimus Prime pictured)

Now to the main show, the Power of the Primes line itself.

The Prime Masters were sighted consisting Micronus, Vector Prime and Liege Maximo
Price is €7,99 (Liege Maximo pictured)
Image

Power of the Primes Legends consisting of Beachcomber, Slash, and Windcharger
Price is €14,99 (Slash pictured)

Power of the Primes Voyagers consisting of Starscream and Grimlock:
Price is at €31,99

Power of the Primes Voyager Starscream

Power of the Primes Voyager Grimlock

Power of the Primes Leader class consisting of Orion Pax to Optimus Prime and Hot Rod to Rodimus Prime.
There was no price tag attached these that g2jazz could find.

But, we do have proof of the transaction here for those curious!

Happy hunting!

Hey guys, can someone help me understand something? These prices, by numerical comparison alone, are drastically higher than the prices listed in the U.S.A. In the US, Prime Masters are 4.99, legends 9.99, deluxes 16.99, voyagers 29.99 and leaders 44.99. Does the Australian currency have more weight, or do Aussies make more to compensate for the price difference? I just don't see how that can be affordable at all... any explanation would be mostly appreciated. Thank you.

A quick google search reveals that with the current exchange rate the Australian dollar is stronger by a fair margin.

That is not the only reason for inflation. Australia is surrounded by sea. When you factor in fuel and shipping costs, retailers have to increase the price to handle the cost of business.

This, plus their minimum wage is higher, currently at AU$18.29 (US$14.50) compared to the US federal minimum wage of US$7.50 (AU$9.46), though the highest state minimum is US$11.50 (AU$14.50). Higher minimum wages usually mean higher cost of living and prices on goods. Japan tends to buck the trend there with a minimum wage of 848 JPY (US$7.70) and we know how expensive their own stuff is, no wonder why so many Japanese adults drop out of the work force and move in with their parents.

It's not about seeing the letters, it's about knowing they're there. It's a "taint" on the figure, even if it is usually not visible unless you are looking for it.

I still want to know what the designer was playing at, he has the right to whatever political beliefs he wants but did he have to print it on a toy?

I think the person responsible did it purely as a troll to see how people would react if they discovered it.

I'm reacting by waiting for the re-release. Keep politics outta my toys dammit! :HEADHURTS:

Next in Power of the Primes: the "I'm with Her" Moonracer and #metoo Elita-1. :lol:


"Stronger Together" would have been funny for a combiner, but yeah, no politics on our toys, period.


Get your politics out of my independent country of Carbombya!

Don't forget Novastar!

But yeah, the only politics I want to see are between Autobots/Maximals and 'CONs.
