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

hah! Like I said, I voted for Arcee because (1) she's awesome and (2) I would have loved to see her as a Prime -- but I honestly wonder if she would have gotten the same evolution treatment as Primal & the G1 Primes....they would've had to design something all-new (that could've been amazing) -- or make her a combiner. Even though she's also been a Combiner Hunter. ;p

A Leader class Arcee would have been great. Give her a "50s bubble caravan" trailer thingy (to go with Rodimus' space Winnebago mode) for her vehicle mode. As for the "evolved" robot mode...Hmm. Over on the 4chan Transformers thread we had a very silly idea for a "cute/hot mom" super mode (EXTRA T H I C C) which someone did a pretty decent sketch of, though annoyingly I can't find it now.

Hmmm. I sense a custom idea brewing. Maybe when I've got missile tank Megatron and CW Starscream done...

Lunatic Prime: I could've gone for a retooled Evol Roddy for Arcee Prime. I really like the Hot Rod we got with Rodimus, too -- he looks more dignified than I'd like, but cool. :rodimusstar:

Rated X: I could totally go for an original female combiner head! It works for Megascream, but a new head for Elita-1 would've been my preference as well.

My imagination is pretty limited so considering the current "was always going get" leaders, I'd guess if any other of the Autobots would have been chosen we'd got some sort of space winnebago.

I hope there is at least some concept art for all the potential primes that we get to see st some point.

I don't mind it with Starscream because his ego overrides logic. It doesn't really go with the established fiction that a bot would combine into a larger version of themself.

So, now that cards have been catalogued online for all 12 Primes and the released wave 1 PotP figures.

http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Prime_Master/Combinations

Has there been any news as to what the last 3 symbols are on the early promo art (totaling 15) are for? Being that the 13th Prime in Fiction is Optimus, it may be a little convoluted to have him as an actual character in PotP, and as a Prime Master, but never under estimate Hasbro's ability to sell an Optimus Toy ;) . Also There's been speculation the others could be Primus and Unicron, but nothing concrete...any thoughts are appreciated.

Well we all knew this was probably coming, still lame though. I was wanting, at the very least, Hydra and Buster released by :TAKARATOMY: in Masterforce colours, names. Have to admit though that now having PotP Jazz, Beachcomber and Windcharger in hand, they are nice. Not sure if this brand global thing is going to up the paint game of :HASBRO: or just stop having the awesome decos from :TAKARATOMY: . Like I said if Jazz is any indication, I am pretty happy. Only big problems I have with him is lack of paint on his rims and taillights. Besides those two shortcomings, Jazz, Beachcomber and Windcharger all could have been :TAKARATOMY: Legends releases I think, quality/paint wise.

Transformers Deluxe Repugnus Possibly Being Released in 2018 May Mayhem with Blastoff

Postby william-james88 » Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:24 pm

Fellow Seibertronian mordhelm has shared some pretty cool news with us. Toy distributor ACD Distribution has added two new listing to their site. Both are special edition Transformers deluxe Generations toys coming out in May, just in time for a possible 2018 edition of May Mayhem. One is for Blastoff, a toy we already knew was coming, and the other is none other than Repugnus.
With Titans Return already giving us a deluxe Twinferno and Grotusque, fans were really hoping for a deluxe Repugnus to finish the trio (at the same scale) and it seems Hasbro will deliver on that. With Blastoff having Power of the Primes packaging, odds are that if Repugnus does come out, it would be within this same Generations subline.

Below is all the available info on these two toys including the SKU and UPC numbers. The price is that of a wholesaler, so the retail price can be expected to be about double that.

TRAN: Gen Special Ed Dlx Blast Off (6)
SKU HSBE1796
Release Date 1/1/2018 PREORDER
Retail Price $9.99
Manufacturer HASBRO
Category TOYS
UPC 630509626977

TRAN: Gen Special Ed Dlx Repugnus (6)
SKU HSBE1797
Release Date 1/1/2018 PREORDER
Retail Price $9.99
Manufacturer HASBRO
Category TOYS
UPC 630509626991

Hopefully a modernized version of this image below will be possible come summer.

Just when I'do gotten my hands on Grotesque and was thinking of writing a review of the trio... I may as well wait a bit so I can have all three in the same scale.

It sucks, though, that Repugnus is being religated to an exclusive like this. I doubt they would do this with a new mold, so he's probably a retool of someone existing. A Terrorcon, perhaps? Which will make it a bit odd. Two Monsterbots will be Headmasters, and the third a random combiner limb? As long as he works well as an individual toy and looks good with the other Monsterbots, not the end of the world. It will just be weird.

But, in the end... Deluxe Repugnus? Yay.

It'll probably be Rippersnapper. All they would really have to do is change the head.

Given that they're so dedicated to the 1987 line, I'm hoping another Punch/Counterpunch is coming down the line. I missed the first Botcon one and the new one is just the Decepticon side which really doesn't work for me.

Well most of us have a headmaster Quake displayed with CW Spinister and Needlenose. Not to mention CW Windsweeper and Ruckus displayed with either Movie Crankcase or a certain 3rd party figure. At least all these obscure teams are getting completed in some form.

My guess is that Generaitons Repugnus will be a further retool of the Twinferno/Grotusque mold. I mean why have only one of them as a combiner limb?..that would be kind of dumb, kind like having one of them be a different sized toy...oh wait... ;) .

Anyway...It's not hot on my list, but I'll pick it up either way. I have the other 2 Generations Monsterbots ( well my son actually has them), but if he does turn out to be a combiner limb all the better, I can fit him in somehow...

Also, I may not be too good with colors, but I'm not colorblind. I don't really see the difference between UW Blastoff coloring, and the proposed May Mayhem Hasbro Shuttle Blastoff. It may be just me...but IIRC previous May Mayhem figures (Slingshot, Wildrider & Groove), didn't really make any changes from the :TAKARATOMY: versions did they??...

Also, I know Hasbro probably didn't want to go too crazy with exclusive figures, but I know some fans that are still wanting a release of the UW Ratchet. I'm glad I have mine...but still .

The differences are minor (Quickslinger & Brake-Neck) to veeeeeeerrrrrry minute (Groove), but they're there:

UW-02 Menasor: Wildrider

Image
UW-01 Superion: Sling

Combiner Wars Quickslinger

If anything, Blast Off's deco will more streamlined compared to the patch work of the Unite Warriors one, possibly using UW Shuttler as a base.

As for Repugnus... a second retool of Doublecross/Twinferno isn't out of the question, if Triggerhappy is anything to go by.

There's no real way to retool Doublecross or Grotusque into repugnus. He'll most likely be from rippersnapper like other people are theorising.

The two blast offs are actually pretty different with the hasbro one having no purple or black on the main body or most of the cockpit area. Also the pattern on the wings is different.

Wildrider and Slingshot were different between Hasbro and Takara ImageImageImageImage

I disagree. There is a perfectly awesome custom-job out there using the Doublecross mold. It is entirely possible.

They can use Rippersnapper mold if they want, but I will be PISSED if it's combiner instead of Titan Master.

BUT

A thought occurs to me. We noticed that Blast Off has a slightly different looking Megatronus on the package. Maybe even Transparent.

WHAT IF between May Mayhem and other exclusives (including the rumored Wreck-Gar) we get Special Editions of each of the Prime Masters without a Pretender Shell.

If we're getting a TM version of Repugnus, as I hope we are, maybe this will be the way they release TM versions of the Autobot Targetmasters that we never got. So that they can release these transparent/shining-spark Prime Masters.

Just a thought.

Are you talking about this Image? Because while cool and a good custom it doesn't work for repugnus. Repugnus doesn't have a tail or wings and while the wings are easy enough to take off the tail isn't. Granted rippersnapper isn't a great choice for the alt mode either but it's better than Doublecross.

*Edit: the more I look at it the more I can get behind it. But they definitely need to lose the wings.

Somehow, the paint from Blast Off looks similar to the Zeta Take Off for some reason :-?

The tail could be replaced with a stub.

Or, heck, make it Rippersnapper. Remove the limb connector and replace it with a cockpit and Titan Master port. That plus new head, plus new deco. So the retool would be confined to the torso with a minor head tweak.

Honestly, for the head, I’d just opt for TM Repugnus face with metallic green goggles and have the body be the Clouder retool of Ramhorn deco’d as Beastformer Flykick. (Keeps the Monsterbots as Battle Beasts and uses a TM tooling not seen in the States since Clouder had a bird head.)
