Fellow Seibertronian Powered Convoy has posted images comparing both Hasbro releases of Transformers Generations legends class Skrapnel / Shrapnel, the one from Thrilling 30 and the newly released one from Power of the Primes. Here we get a very good look at the differences which have been broken down by Twincast Podcast host ScottyP:

Different enough for completionists to not hate themselves, not different enough for those with the old one to really worry about :)


Our own Sabreblade posted Powered Convoy's images, which can be seen below:

Out of seemingly nowhere, Hasbro Toy Shop has stocked the Wave 1 Prime Master figures for Power of the Primes! Thanks to a tip from Seibertronian mordhelm, we can confirm that Prime Masters Micronus, Liege Maximo and Vector Prime (with Decoy Suits based on Cloudburst, Skullgrin and Metalhawk respectively) are all listed on hasbrotoyshop.com, and can be Added to Cart and purchased at this very moment.

Each figure is listed at $4.99, a dollar lower than the price found in Toys R Us' database just over two months ago. Since the Prime Master class hasn't been discovered at any form of retail up until now, this is the first chance that collectors will have to grab these figures.

Will you be picking these toys up from Hasbro Toy Shop now, or waiting a little longer for them to come to you? Let us know on the Energon Pub Forums, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for more updates on the Power of the Primes toyline as it rolls out!

(Heeheehee if you open all three images and switch between them quickly it looks like the Prime Masters are doing a little stop-motion walk, this will entertain me for at least the next half an hour)

NICE Qwan! I'm super-tempted right now, but would like to locate them on the Hunt....

I might skip Skullgrin...the other two are must-haves!

Interesting. I'm feeling the complete opposite.

Well. Actually. I will buy all of them. BUT, I actually like the Skullgrin one.

This is all coming from someone that never liked Pretenders, though. So take the opinion as you will.

Seibertron,got'em! This is just another time you've hooked up an otherwise clueless Asepticon. Thank you!

OUT OF STOCK! Now every Transformers site across the board says these things are in stock when in fact they are OUT OF STOCK.

Seriously? You guys haven't learned after all these years that whenever Hasbrotoyshop gets something in stock they only get like 2? And are sold out within a few minutes.

This same shit happened with Grotusque. The front page says IN STOCK, I race over to the site with absolutely no chance of the shit actually being IN STOCK. It's like you're trying to frustrate the piss out of everybody on purpose. Next time Hasbrotoyshop gets something in stock don't even bother reporting it. Because it's going to be sold out by the time most people see it.

Glad someone appreciated the story!

Aimless, I'm sorry you missed them (I did too, if it helps?) but there's not a practical way to do this otherwise, and just not reporting it at all is out of the question. It's not feasible for volunteer staff to update every news article about in-stock items when they go out-of-stock, or back in, or back out - all of which can happen several times over the course of a day. Think of these as 1) a handy notification if you happen to be around when it goes up, but also 2) a heads-up that you may want to start checking to see if they get more in the near future :)

Yep, you figured it out, it was all an elaborate ruse just to frustrate you. We were all in on it. Well done everyone!

BBTS finally has Power of the Primes up for pre-order. :-D

I noticed some of the popular singles are already sold out, but as of 8:30 CST, all the complete wave preorders for each size class were available.

Yep, they're all out of stock as of now. Rats. I kind of wanted Skullgrin, for obvious reasons ;)

$65 for two voyagers? Pass for now. May get the legends group.

Already shelled out $40 at BBTS for the clone set since Walgreens are nowhere near me. The price increase of late is dismaying.

I was kinda surprised they were gone already, but then again...I had them in the cart and almost pulled the trigger. It was the shipping cost that annoyed me, so for the Hunt they go!

I like that the BBTS listing has pics where you can see the PM's faces in their shells. :)

Skullgrin looks really cool, DeceptionFinishLine! But I prefer the original incarnation's scale....but the humanoid shells are perfect.

Isnt it ironic I caught Grotesque on HTS but missed out on these silly little things? I guess Im just gonna be happy I didnt have to pay for shipping on something that will be clogging the pegs of stores everywhere in 3 weeks.

'Tis the season to get gouged with scalping, iirc. Unless you get lucky at Ross.

Good God, those Voyager prices. I can forgive the Prime Master set being $20, and the Deluxes are expected, but $35 for Voyagers? Damn, I think I might just wait until I see them in stores for $10 less.

Huh. Now I guess they have to paint the faces of the smaller bots.

I'll wait out the decoy guys till they end up in stores. There's nothing else at HTS I could get to push me to the free shipping threshold.

But I am shocked: someone said they would not get Skullgrin, when he is the coolest one????
