Thanks to Autovolt on Twitter, we've been alerted to a post on 4chan that supposedly reveals some previously unknown information about the upcoming Power of the Primes line! Take it with a grain of salt, however - this is in no way a confirmation. The post itself is below, as well as a transcript in case it's too small to read. Check it out, and let us know your thoughts in the Energon Pub!

Transformers News: Generations Power of the Primes Rumour: Exclusive Beast Wars Subline

There's a Beast Wars subline to Power of the Primes next year. I work at Amazon and this will be a shared online exclusive. Us and BBTS.

No original molds, but we will get the Takara Blackarachnia mold in the US from it. Eight Deluxe and two Voyagers, Primal and Megatron. Primal is a retool of the PotP Apeface. Megatron is a retool of PotP Snapdragon. They won't have Titan Masters, so don't worry.

(The PotP Grimlock is Leader sized, so it was never a consideration to be retooled as Megatron.)

Makes enough sense to be possible.

The real question is, will said PotP Apeface and Snapdragon have Titan Masters? I'm thinking... yes? Given the nature of the stating of being a retool, then clarifying about the lack of Titan Masters.

Before anyone else asks, yes, the general assumption is that Apeface and Snapdragon will have Titan Masters, and Primal and Megs will be retooled to have normal heads.

Maybe they just are already designed to have spaces where heads can remain attached in alt-modes or retool them to have spaces like how some folks have cut into Blurr's shield so he can have his head attached in vehicle mode and forget that toy he's a headmaster.

I'm pretty much done with Titans... and with G1 updates (it's beyond boring now) unless Hasbro/Takara finally gives me the characters I want at the scale I want but that's unlikely. No interest in Beast Wars either. Never liked the show or it's toyline.

I wonder if that Blackarachnia will be assembled correctly this time.

I hope there's an Optimal Optimus.

Any chance of SDCC reveals or is there still too much Titans Returns in the pipeline?

I believe that it has been confirmed that the first wave of PotP will be revealed at Hascon. Also LEADER Grimlock, has anybody else wanted him in this size class?

Interesting. I wonder how far they'd be willing to go with choosing molds? Would they be willing to repaint Universe Dinobot into BW Grimlock? Or even do a more show accurate repaint of that mold? Doing Optimus and Megatron as Voyagers probably means we can rule out a Hasbro version of Convobat and Megalligator. I can't really think of any other practical uses for the Headmaster animal molds.

I really hope Primal is in Optimal Optimus colors since we should be getting a normal Primal in PotP already. For that matter I hope Megatron is in his dragon colors, though he's going to need wings.

I'd be so very down for a Leader class Optimal Optimus. maybe have a face swap gimmick ala t30 blitzwing, so the figure can also double up as Optimal Megatron from the Beast Machines finale.

pretty sure there is only 1 more wave of TR along with the Intelligence and Fireblast boxsets.

8 deluxe and 2 voyagers.
Primal and Megatron would most likely be the 2 voyagers
8 deluxe, 4 maximals 4 predacons?
Cheetor, Tigatron, Airazor, Silverbolt
Terrorsaur, Tarantulas, Blackarachnia, Scorponok

Cheetor and Tigatron could share a single new mold with some creative retooling done to the beast mode proportions
Blackarachnia would just be a us release of the Takara Legends toy
Scorponok as a retool of the RID warrior?

part of me cant help but pine for a potential us release of Beast Wars Metals Jaguar X-9

Holy Celestial spires excuse my language but this sounds of the chain a Beast Wars box set and on another note Grimlock is a leader does that mean the other Dinobots will be voyagers that would be awesome,and proper Apeface and a Snapdragon. :MAXIMAL: :PREDACON:

Yeeeeeessssssss...I hope there is a decent amount of retooling done if this is true. More Beast Wars love please.

As cool as it could be to get a new Primal and BW Megatron, the best news here is the upcoming Apeface and Snapdragon. I've been really tempted by the KFC ones, but I'll wait and see what these wind up looking like. Given what we've got from Titans Return, I imagine they're going to be pretty G1ish, which I think also bodes well for any new Beast Wars toys.

That is the saddest and honestly most pathetic thing I've heard. Cutting up a toy just because they can't handle blurr being a headmaster. That's really depressing.

Our brand new Optimus Primal figure is going to be a remold?

I think that is enough to call "fake".

It's a remold of another ape figure it makes sense and whoever said the toy would be brand new?

Plus what if it's the other way around where Apeface is the remold like we all know how much Hasbro likes to reuse figures to get their moneys worth off the molds.

Likely real then.

I think thats an awesome idea! Maybe it will inspire belzeboss or some other 3rd party to make a shield/head upgrade set to make blurr right. Any ideas for Hot Rod or Kup?

Kinda surprised we're getting Beast Wars at all -- the current design team seems to not know what something is unless it's in some way related to a G1 toy.

I'd love to see a giant combiner Dinobot set... and a giant combiner Predaking set at same scale... plus the remaining missing beast combiners like abominus, dinoking, seacon-guy... etc. Could be a great third 'season' of beast... with beast wars subline to boot.
