During an event with Hasbro PR, we received confirmation that Hasbro will still be attending San Diego Comic Con. It was stated that it would be business as usual, with exclusives for various properties and the announcement of said exclusives would come out in June, same as every year.

While it seemed like a non news story to Hasbro PR, who are working on a more official announcement, the fact that so much attention has been put on Hascon and the lack of mention of SDCC all through this time did let the fan community doubt Hasbro's attendance. This is just to say that we have confirmation it is not the case, and it should be business as usual with Hasbro at SDCC this year.

I'm guessing we'll see the last wave of Titans Return in its entirety, a box set or two, wave 3 of The Last Knight and some more Robots in Disguise Combiner Force stuff., then they'll probably finish up with a teaser silhouette of something from Power of the Primes.

SDCC 2017 is 20-23 July. I think by then we'll have seen all of TR.

Dont be so sure, we only saw the wave 4 of CW at SDCC (or was that Botcon, same difference in terms of timing). I am pretty sure thats where we will see the two next box sets too. They seems to always reveal boxsets at SDCC. Oh and I predict they will also show RID toys that have already been found in stores :twisted:

Not just chrome, he'll have the differences present on the Takara version too - so he'll have two circles on his back assembly painted white! :shock:

Nope. Still not a particularly accurate deco. Can customise a better one from the regular Voyager release easy enough (and that photo shows his chest mistransformed and 'saggy', and somehow the grey pieces that cover the wheels on the insides of the lower legs are gone and backpack doesn't look folded right. Come on, Hasbro.).

They didnt fix the eyes and the hips are still grey. the big difference is the flames on the chest (which dont look that great) and the feet (which I admit look better). Still not loads beter than the original.

Will wait for the reveal of a platinum box set.

Weirdly they still paint the collar blue which should be silver and they've added blue on the upper arms that should be silver (and is silver on the regular figure) but didn't bother painting the shoulders blue when they should be. I just don't get why they do these things.

And yeah the chest flames don't look right. I still haven't attempted those on my figure yet (still hoping for a Reprolabels release of them) but I'm much happier with the current state of my custom figure than this new more expensive still-not-accurate deco.

I do like the paint job on this one more than the standard release version. As for the tire tread I'd expect it to get auctioned off for insane amounts.

I dont. Its all about demand and supply. You can make a ton of slivers from those 6 wheels (he has 6 right?). If they could sell it for more, they would.

Its like those sports cards with a piece of a jersey worn by a player. Limited sure, and a piece of something real, but theres a bunch, and not enough people are ready to spend all that money, so it ends up not being much, like these lackluster auctions:

Thanks to Hypebeast, we have news on the black redeco of Titans Return Power Master Optimus Prime along with a brand new image of him in robot mode. It turns out this will be an SDCC exclusive and also available on HTS after the show. It will be sold for $50, which is almost the same as the non exclusive original figure and he will come with a ramp, rail, and hoverboard, all pictured below, making it a better deal than the original for the amount of accessories you are getting.

Here is an excerpt from the article which speaks of the design and its link to Primitive Skateboarding.

The autobot figurine was partially designed by Primitive Skateboarding founder Paul Rodriguez, and features some updates to the character’s traditional red and blue paint job. This Prime belongs to the Titans Return Powermaster reprise and is decorated in black and gold — a nod to Primitive’s signature colors. The toy figurine also comes with a ramp, rail, and hoverboard, so it can “Shreddicus Maximus” whenever he’s not battling the Decepticons.


TRANSFORMERS PRIMITIVE OPTIMUS PRIME Figure

(Ages 8 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $49.99/Available at Booth #3329 at Comic-Con International in San Diego)

Before OPTIMUS PRIME was blasting DECEPTICONS in battle, he was greasing the wheels of his skateboard with fellow skater, SHREDDICUS MAXIMUS. Shredding rad gnar on the boardwalks of the Senti Rust Pier, they up their street cred while nailing down their signature trick, the Null-Ray-Ray, annihilating the competition into mere grime… Now get ready for the gnarliest TRANSFORMERS stunt of the 21st century… TRANSFORMERS has worked with Primitive Skateboarding, the company founded by legendary skateboarder, Paul Rodriguez, to roll out this special edition TRANSFORMERS PRIMITIVE OPTIMUS PRIME Figure convention exclusive. Co-designed by Paul, the figure features Primitive Skate’s classic black and gold colors for a more sophisticated and on-brand look. To up the skateboarding theme, the figure is placed in premium Primitive Skate-inspired packaging that mimics a “skate shoe” box featuring grip-tape inspired texture. As the ultimate twist, the pack features rail, ramp and hover board accessories! The pack includes a LEADER CLASS OPTIMUS PRIME figure, a TITAN MASTER SHREDDICUS MAXIMUS figure and eight accessories. Converts from robot to tractor trailer in 23 steps and from tractor trailer to battle station in 10 steps. The TRANSFORMERS PRIMITIVE OPTIMUS PRIME Figure will be for sale during San Diego Comic-Con 2017. Following the convention, a limited number will be available on HasbroToyShop.com.


Here are the new totally radical images of the toy and set.

That is the snazziest Nucleon Quest Super Convoy has ever looked! Radical indeed!

Also, that hoverboard looks like the one Daniel rode in TFTM, but in black and yellow.
