The new "Leaked From Cybertron" series really seems to be rolling, and it seems set on following a Dinobot trend, as our newest video surfaces today: Power of the Primes Snarl!

Snarl is part of the new Power of the Primes line, transforming into a red, silver, and gold Stegosaurus and is a combiner limb for the Dinobot combiner Volcanicus. He is the fourth Dinobot of the line to get a video following Slash, Slug, and Sludge. The video, like the previous videos, gives us a quick at the design process, going from grey model to a final toy. You can check out the video by checking it out below or by following the link to the Transformers Instagram or Facebook pages.

So what do you think of this Snarl? Are you enjoying these designer desk videos? Let us know in the comments section below!

I actually had a chance to purchase a starscream at even lower than that i Canada a few weeks back. But I didnt. Its then that I realized that no matter how good a deal is, if I dont like a toy then no price will make me get it.

You’ll save 100% of the price by not buying at all

the only thing good(not great) about that starscream is the combiner torso mode, now if we only had some seeker limbs :-?

I've only seen Starscream twice in stores and that was back in early March, maybe even February. I got mine for $16 on Amazon which I think is fine, but I'm glad I wasn't enticed into paying full price. Now Grimlock, I sure would like to find him at retail price or less. I'm thinking I might just pass on Sludge and Snarl if I'm going to have to pay out the nose for Grimlock.

All Leaders are pretty much non-existent around me too.

Hb must have over estimated 'screamer's worth/popularity. He's like PotP Bayfomrer's Bumblebee. The fig is like cluttering all the TRU stores I've been too!
It's either :

There are bands of scalpers gobbling up all the "we want figs" or Hb did another clusterfrack in distribution!

Or he's just another figure that's not selling as well as his wavemates - those happen all the time (Twinferno is probably a good recent example). I don't think there's really any way Hasbro could've reasonably packed less of him per case than they were already doing, and still actually distributed the toy.

Now as for whether it was a good call putting him in Wave 1 - the wave that almost certainly every store will get in large amounts - that's definitely up for debate, but I don't think this is exactly a distribution disaster on par with TLK or anything like that.

Come to think of it I did see a Broadside for 20 bucks on clearance at Walmart but I didn't think to take a pic.

Its worth checking the more far flung Walmarts.

My take is that this is to make room and shrink the footprint of the Transformer shelf space in favor of summer/movie toys coming in. Between Avengers, Antman 2, Incredibles 2 and Hotel Transylvania they'll be a lot of competition for shelf space this summer.

That's not how it works, as far as I know. Clearance has always seemed like the Walmart word for sale


Actually, they very well might stop carrying that assortment, at that particular store. Clearances are done at the store's discretion, meaning it's not across the whole chain. Rollbacks or sales tend to be more coordinated, but some can be store-specific.

Remind me to ask my father-in-law who works there.

Clearance can mean many different things in retail. If anything is being discontinued (food clothes, toys, whatever...) it may be clearanced to get rid of what they have. Walmart has sales and clearance, though it can be odd at times. Some tings are chain wide, others are very selective. There are literally 10 Walmarts I can drive to at any given time. One of them had wave 1 PM's on clearance for $3.00, but then after those were gone, they got in more wave 1 PM's and kept them at regular price $4.98. Wave 2 PM's have yet to appear at any store (Target or Walmart) near me.

I wonder if some Walmart stores are confusing the Power of the Primes assortments with the recently released Studio Series assortments. They are both labeled as "Transformers Generations" products and come in boxes with similar visual style and graphic design. With the Bumblebee movie not coming out for another half a year, maybe some stores don't realize that Studio Series is a movie line and not a replacement for the perennial "Generations" lines we've been enjoying for the past 8 years.

I assume you are referring to how the toys ship from the warehouse, not the packaging of the toys themselves?? -It could be, I don't know, but I do know that while some fans said there was nothing to be worried about with the Studio series taking up shelf space that could otherwise be used for PotP, I can say, this is NOW a legitimate concern of mine. I know this is supposed to be a *Best of the Best* from all 5 movies but...lets be honest, while I never collected any Movie based toys, the lines for the first 3 films seemingly sold fairly well, the last 2 however (AoE & TLK), were way overproduced and shelf warmed to near disgusting levels. Heck there are still some TLK toys clogging shelves of Targets, the only reason walmart got them out is because they clearance them out at up to 70% off. Hasbro should have taken a break with the movie line, I mean BB toys will probably start showing up around October. We could have enjoyed PotP until then. Of course I expect to see RiD15 toys on clearance next because those fugly Cyberverse toys I know are coming :-( .

Studio series arrived way quicker, and in much greater quantities than I expected, and funny enough, they aren't moving.

No, I mean the actual windowed boxes that the individual figures come in. They all have a white band to the side with red "Transformers" lettering.

Well I could see that perhaps with the Voyagers. But the Deluxes for SS are boxed while for PotP they are carded, its a pretty big difference. Also the Price Points are different, as is the SKU (even though they are both labeled as Generations). I would hope most retailers would know the difference.

To continue our series of 'Leaked from Cybertron' images we now have some of Deluxe Class Swoop. This short slideshow of pictures comes to us from Hasbro's Facebook and Instagram pages. We have imbedded it below so that you can have a look for yourself. Swoop is sporting some nice metallic plastic to match the other Dinobots and carries a red sword. If you are a Dinobot fan you may also want to check out Snarl's 'Leaked from Cybertron' images too.

The previous films also sold terribly. They are notorious for still having stck from a previous movie line when the new movie rolls out, which did not happen with AOE and TLK.

Here are a few shelfwarmers for you

Also, FYI,the Bumblebee movie toys deluxes/voyagers/leaders will be part of the studio series line so there wont be an issue for shelfspace (if there is one).

Good to know the BB toys wont be another separate line. Also, we both agree Movie toys sold terribly, and were overproduced. The only difference is that there were 3 years between AoE and TLK, and there were only 2 years between the previous films, so obviously there was more spillover. Also I think more affirmative clearance was done by the last 2 movie lines to try to get them out of the stores, but like I said, TLK toys are still around. Also the other movie lines had additional assortments even after the movie was long gone, not so for AoE & TLK, those toys were bad enough, didn't need more of them.

I noticed that too. Most Studio series figures I saw at one time was 4 and wasn't even the full set. Of course I bought one though :P
