I wonder if Hasbro will use the Blast Off orientation, or the Shuttler one:

Only difference is the arm assembly, really...

As :HASBRO: goes for toy accuracy I could see them doing the Movor orientation because of the flat chest. Another good reason would be to be more different from :TAKARATOMY:'s version.

Did you compare it with the varying exchange rate changes of the past 5 months?
Is the price higher for all classes?
And could it be that BBTS has increased its prices on more popular figures in hope to offest the loss of not selling these figures due to the fact that it is now known they are the same a Hasbro's?

We did see a different colored Megatronus, didn't we? Of note: he's likely a retool of Liege Maximo because the arms match in design.

LOL, he's pretty photogenic! I prefer the other cannon, but the G1-ness made me give him this one for the photos with Rodimus. :rodimusstarhalf:

I missed out on Bruticus during CW as well, so seeing space-ship Blast Off is tempting me to try and obtain them....I was actually hoping I'd be able to hunt down Fruiticus a couple of years ago when the CW sets were showing up at Ross and other discount sellers. This last Xmas was kinda crappy for bargain-hunting.

I enjoy having UW Blastoff despite his flaws. But could you imagine tat chest, and add a PotP accessory chest on top of that... :shock: . :lol:

Anyway, my patience has paid off. The Target layout that was done a couple days ago near my home was *somewhat* stocked today. They had pretty much everything except leaders. So I had my first sighting of Voyagers yay!, and picked up Grimlock. I wont have time to unpackage him until later, but still it was good to see them all on shelves. Now that :TAKARATOMY: is no longer a factor, I can plan accordingly. My remaining wants for wave 1 are Voyager Starscream, and Deluxe Swoop, Slag, and Jazz. If I get one per paycheck, that will spread things out nicely until wave 2 starts hitting shelves.

Great to hear, o.supreme! I wouldn't be surprised if more Leaders come in next week -- I don't expect the Primes should be hard to find once the old TLK, TR figures are cleared from the shelves.

Another point for the "Movor orientation". The downside is that the hollowed out side of his arms will be visible in shuttle mode.

I wonder if Takara would be willing to sell its rights to Transformers to liscense product in Japan to Hasbro? Also if the major lines (Movie Line, Generaitons Line, and mainline animated series line) are all going to be identical...does that mean

Would it matter? Can't the arm bits be popped off and swapped around, letting us have our cake and eat too ;)^

I'm going with Blast-off orientation because it will be easier to peg/clip the prime armor into if he comes with that flavor. I'd guess using the thumb tabs into the sides of his shuttle chesticles.

I hear ya though.

I have mushroom pegs pop out all the time just when posing figures. Well the brave among us have options then ;)

Definite buy; now I have to decide what to do with jet Blast-off. Even though I find it to be a very attractive figure :-?

Exchange rates fluctuate all the time and yet that had never affected the legends line releases. Over the past year the exchange rate hasn't fluctuated by more than a few yen. All deluxe figures besides Jazz are labeled as $29 so I'm led to believe it's Takara raising the price slightly which they typically don't do without the inclusion of something extra. Prime masters are the only other size we can compare now between wave 1 and 2 and they're the same price still.

I don't see a HFG either a decoy suit but I guess you suggest that because of the size of the accessories he's holding in his hands. It would be great if he comes with Megatronus'es decoy suit but :HASBRO: is a greedy little bitch and therefore they could make more money by not including it so people have to buy it seperately with the normal release of Megatronus.
Another thing that's going against the Prime armor is that there's no mention of combining with a Prime in his bio unlike it's in the other PotP characters' bios.

Would it matter? Can't the arm bits be popped off and swapped around, letting us have our cake and eat too ;)^

I'm going with Blast-off orientation because it will be easier to peg/clip the prime armor into if he comes with that flavor. I'd guess using the thumb tabs into the sides of his shuttle chesticles.

I'd prefer the Movor orientation. I would swap his arms nonetheless to have the Blast Off orientation but with the Prime armor as a jetpack like it's on my Swoop.

As many have already said, this is not surprising, but still disappointing. Unite Warriors 2.0 would have been nice. Honestly, though, this is better for my budget, being able to buy domestically will save me a LOT of money. It'll allow me to double dip on some of the figures too, so that I can display Volcanicus and Abominus with the rest of my combiners and still have the individual team members on my "Classics" shelves as well. Now, my Takara purchases will be relegated to the Masterpiece line, which is fine. It also helps that the G1 Masterpiece releases are slowing down quite a bit, at least for the first half of 2018.

I think the only big disappointment for me so far with Power of the Primes is that Takara won't be releasing the Dinobots with red helmets for Slag and Swoop and blue eyes for all. Those small changes would have been enough for me, even if some of the other details on the dino or robot modes lean more toy accurate than cartoon accurate. At least we got Swoop with a blue chest, I guess?

I'd rather not, out of fear of breakage. I don't know my own strength at times... :oops:


Don't actually eat the arms, JelZe! It's just an expression! ;)

Nice - I can finally retire the CW Jet version and complete Bruticus properly without having to buy another Baldigus set from Takara...!
