Who wants more Transformers Power of the Primes in hand images? Well, the internet is bursting with them but two fans, Gallade and Anguirus have provided short pictorial reviews of Swoop and Slug respectively. They include something we did not see in today's video reviews, their limb modes. These two fans show Swoop and Slug in full on scramble city mode teamed up with Combiner Wars toys. Also, unlike the previous set of in hand images of them combined, these do not use add on kits so you can see how they look with the feet that came with the Combiner Wars figures (since the Power of the Primes feet only come with the voyagers and they aren't out yet). One other cool aspect is that we have confirmation of Titan Master ports on these toys, specifically Swoop with a fun image below.
So far these toys have been found only at Target and sightings seem to be spreading across the country. Let us know if you find one near you in our sightings section and sightings forum.

You can check this post for all the info on everything we know https://www.seibertron.com/transformers ... nts/39844/

I stand corrected, sorry for jumping the gun, I just saw a pattern and thought it fit. I missed out on that blurb.

Still kinda want a Bugly and Finback suit though...

You know, I don't think it's wave 3 that's loitering, it's that damn revision wave that had Hotrod, Twinferno, and who ever else that everyone already bought that is the culprit. For the last 4 weeks the 3 Targets I frequent, have each had 4 Twinfernos and nothing else. It's driving me nuts. I NEED SOME TWIN TWIST DAM MOTT! :BANG_HEAD:

while I cant speak for the hot rods, what cobotron is seeing is definitely the revision wave. I will make a news post about it since I see a lot of confusion. Its actually new (not that anyone wanted it)
https://www.seibertron.com/transformers ... ion/39261/

I know in my situation I'm absolutely swimming in wave 3. I have 3 stores that I frequent at least once a week, sometimes more. The Augusta, ME Walmart was nothing but case after case of wave 3 since November 2016 until a few months back when we got that wave 2 revision set with all of the Autobot Headmasters plus Blurr and Scourge. Those sold out fairly well, leaving just two Hot Rods and a Twinferno from previous stock and nothing new since because somebody decided to fill the TR Deluxe pegs with those TLK Allspark figures while leaving the pegs they're supposed to be on empty. :roll: No wave 4, 5, or 6 there or revision wave 4.

The second store is the Augusta Target which was also nothing but wave 3 until the summer when they got one case of wave 4, but all that was left was Kup, Krok, and Quake. I already had Takara Tomy's Kup on order at this point and passed on the other two thinking I'd certainly be able to get them for less at Walmart soon. If I knew then what I knew now I would have bought the both right then. After that it was right back to wave 3. No wave 5 or 6 or revision wave 4.

The third store is the Waterville Walmart which is on my way home from work so I go there the most frequently. This store didn't get anything but wave 3 from November 2016 to just a few weeks ago when they surprisingly got a wave 6 case in (and two cases of Overlord, only place I've seen him). That's how I got my Slugslinger, but the one remaining and the two Kups (wasn't interested anyway) and one Hardhead were gone in two days leaving just the two Hot Rods with what was left of the previous wave 3 case they put up. Neither version of wave 4 or wave 5 here.

Funny thing is the only figures among waves 4 and 5 that I absolutely want is Quake and Misfire (since I managed to find Krok while out of the town over the weekend, at a Target of course). The rest I have the Takara Tomy versions on order, but I wouldn't be against owning both versions of some of these if I found them. It's just that this sort of distribution gives me little faith when it comes to Power of the Primes. I also haven't seen any sign of Blitzwing, Octane, Ramhorn, Seaspray, or Cosmos. I'm sure the first three waves of PotP will be easy enough to find, but after that I'll probably be in the same situation I'm in now. CW wasn't much different, I only saw the Protectobots once at one store and never again, my first time seeing Onslaught was at T.J.Maxx, and I've never seen a Hasbro Sky Lynx in person (which was apparently common).

Ross Dress 4 Less was the only place I ever saw CW Sky Lynx in-person. So naturally, I bought one for me, and another for my bff since he had no luck hunting either.

I never saw deluxes at the discount stores -- unless you count the CW boxsets, and the Platinum Dinobots set. I don't expect to see Misfire there, but I'm still hoping he makes it to Target around Xmas.

I can't wait to see the PotP here...I gotta have Dreadwind.

Yeah, I think that was the case for most people at Ross and T.J.Maxx, unfortunately all I found there (between two stores) was all five Combaticons (already had the UW set), Scattershot (didn't want), Battle Core Optimus Prime (bought), and a single G2 Stunticon box set (bought).

Oh, I'm so glad that they made the descriptions for these powers oh so specific. Or actually doable for the actual toy. Like Amalgamous Swoop's ability to "shift to the most fearful form". So glad they're following TR's example with this. >:oP

Can't wait for this line to become more available, in all honesty, though.

So using Brickseek, I was able to track these down about half an hour away. Got Swoop and Slug after they pulled a case from the back for me. I REALLY like how Jazz looks but I can't go too crazy right now. I will get Grimlock and Rodimus ASAP.

I bought the G2 Stunticons as well! Skipped on Superion, White CW Optimus, lots of Skywarps...no luck on Fort Max, Combaticons or Computron in Oregon. I'm excited to see what's available this year....!

Thanks for showing the limb modes. I thought it was pretty half-assed to post a video review and not show the limb mode.

Don't give up hope. I found CW Wheeljack, Ironhide and Trailbreaker at 3 different TJ Maxx or Marshalls stores last year before Christmas. Perfect timing for me as I already had them all as their original characters, but toyhax came out with the X-tinguisher, Smolder and Fallen sticker sets, so my Battle Core Nova Prime (another sticker set) finally got some limbs of his own.

For TJ Maxx and Marshalls specifically, you need to look in both the toy section, as well as the aisle that leads to the checkout. I found 2 of the 3 at the aisle of the checkout instead of the toy section. Plus a few Swindles that I didn't want/need/already had.

Thank you for sharing! I had added TJ & Marshalls to the hunt last year but didn't look near checkout. Here's hoping -- HAPPY HUNTING ;)^

A pattern I've noticed in my area (though it may not apply to all)...Is that TRU seems to be a bit more reliable, however 1. Obviously they are more expensive 2. Items appear months after being found in other places. I have seen the entirety of TR appear at TRU, though they currently have most of wave 4, which appeared 4 or so months ago at several Targets & Wal Marts in my area.

I still have not seen wave 5 deluxes anywhere, but if I expect to see them anywhere at all, it will probably be at TRU between now and the end of the year. basically TRU is my one hope I'm holding out of seeing Ramhorn. I know one person found ONE at a Midwest retail chain, but the fact that Ramhorn has not appeared at any of the 3 major chains, and really isn't even on eBay aside form a couple scalpers, tell me it still hasn't been released in mass market anywhere other than in some Asian countries. Not sure about Canada...

There will be news soon :)

Yeah so did I , especially since there was so little seen of it before. Hence why I posted that news. But I know why it wasnt reviewed, it would have taken more time and the reviewer wanted it up asap , which is understandable. But whats important is that we now have everything in one way or another :)

The combiner hands don't really look like armor or guns, which just has me thinking that it's too bad the deluxe class figures can't wear them more like power fists.

Speaking of which....go check Toy Dojo's YouTube channel out, as he's currently reviewing the figures and shows them in limb mode (but don't forget to also check Chuck's out too when he has his reviews uploaded)


btw is noone holding off to get the :TAKARATOMY: versions?

Please tell me Hasbro Plans on selling sets of these cards later. I would like to get a full set, but I'm not going to randomly buy figures in hopes of getting the all.

I think I might ebay the cards I pull. That might (effectively) shave a little off the cost of collecting the figures.

I wonder if this will lead to card collectors out there selling off large numbers of out-of-package figures...
