Wave 2 of Transformers Power of the Primes is just around the corner and Entertainment Earth now has descriptions of the contents of each case. The Prime Masters will have repacks and since there are five deluxes in wave 2, some will be packed more than others. The listings state that these are coming out in April 2018 which is exactly as was predicted in the guide we released back in October.

Why would there be price gouging on Rodimus?

He's the only new leader class figure in the case. His preorder is already marked up 20 bucks on BBTS. :( I'm referring to Rodimus Unicronus, for clarification's sake.

It's nothing new, but this is where B&M is so important, so we can avoid things like this.

Or Amazon or HTS (assuming you are in the US).

True. I was about to criticize HTS on their lack of items actually in stock, and Amazon's prices can be all-over-the-place, but I guess its just as much a chance as finding the items at B&M.

You knew Blackwing and Moonracer would be shortpacked?

I'm used to the usual websites tacking on a few dollars here and there. That's nothing new to me. But, the sheer scale of the price raising on the PotP line has been glaring. I'd love to hear the rationale behind it all. God knows, it's not due to improved quality.

At least with wave 2 taking its sweet time and actually getting us back on track time wise for waves, I can save up the money for it and spend time enjoying the new guys I have. Though I am super stoked for Blackwing so I can combine him and Dreadwind and the final 2 dinobots.

Rodicron is so cool looking, I need him now. that's the one I don't want to wait for.

Another advantage to waiting another 2 months or so: all those legends and MP releases in the next 2 months, can focus on them too!

Strange, BBTS has their preorder listing for Alita 1, not Moonracer.

They are probably trying to decide if they will even offer the short packed Moonracer & Blackwing separately at an increased priced, or just stick with the entire wave 2 assortment.

Wait... Metalhawk and Landmine, pretools, are shipped together? Wow, color me surprised. And it just figures the Beasts would be shipped in bigger quantities ;)

Pre-ordered everything so just a matter of waiting for those leaders to finally get in. TF source always seems to be 1-2 weeks behind on items getting listed or in stock. Any idea why that would be?

On the one hand this break is good because most of my purchasing is in waves 1 and 2. On the other hand I hate the waiting around to complete my Dinobots and get Elita-1 and 2 more Prime Masters. I just hope HTS has them on a good sale with free shipping or allows me to make a good sale and get automatic free shipping. Either way if I'm saving money the wait is worth it for this fun line. 8-)

Might be how stuff is shipped. The literal slow boat from China is the cheapest method. My suspicion is that BBTS does a bulk order that way and pays extra to get a few cases in earlier by air.

I don't have proof of this, only experience in working for a company who used to do exactly this when receiving product manufactured in Asia.

Just got my OP (now available in Germany I can confirm) and I have some questions/issues:

1. His stickers arent't applied even but I guess that's common.

2. There are a lot of clearance issues when I want to open his outer chest panels. Feels like they'll break some day.

3. His chin is scratched right out of the package.

4. His shoulders do not really pack in. When I want to use his bicep swivels the whole shoulder moves forward.

And that's just right out of the package without even having transformed him for once :(
I hope there won't be any more surprises. But I really like that his blaster has a lot of 5 mm ports (not the only thing I like about the figure of course but something I haven't realized before). I already ordered some melee weapons and an Arms Micron for him so even more options to combine weapons :DANCE:
