After the initial images we saw with the first news reports of Transformers Power of the Primes figures hitting US retail about a month earlier than expected - as covered here - we have some more in-hand images of the two Dinobots, Slug and Swoop (via Instagram users Faceless Master and Runningwithtoys), plus more of the Decepticon jet Dreadwind (from Instagram user frenmocs)! With Jazz already covered in this news story here, we have the entirety of the wave 1 of deluxes from this new toyline - so take a look at the images below, and let us know what you think of what you've seen so far!

If you come across these or any other figure, please make sure to use our regional Sighting Forums, and the global Sightings Database, now fully updated for Power of the Primes too.

Okay, shoot me for asking, but the ever livin' heck do those chest pieces tab on? It's eating me up inside not being able to figure it out. Also, those figures have peg holes like I hoped! :-D

The center panel on the combiner peg has a part that flips down to reveal a 5mm port.

These breastplates may be somewhat chunky and derpy-looking but, man, do I hope to see someone make Powermasters for Dreadwind and Darkwing on shapeways.

I'll wait to see what Takara does, hopefully they won't cheap out on the Dinobot weapons.

hmmm :-? so doing a quick conversion....that would put the Deluxes at around about £13 or so, in the UK! buuttt...the UK stores prices may or can vary...like TRU ect...so I doubt we'll be seeing those at that specific price everywhere in the UK, guaranteed there's bound to be price hikes for these going on in some stores in the UK

HAHAHAHAAHHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You forget friend, when it comes to these prices, $1 = £1 regardless of exchange rate so these things are gonna cost £16.99 minimum.

So, a lot has happened this weekend. The first sightings of PotP deluxes in stores. Although it may be a minor thing, the pics of the new limbs working with CW Voyagers makes be happy more than you guys will ever know. :-D .

Also, today is 3 years to the day the CW thread was started. I looked at a few of the first posts, and everyone back then was hoping for Predaking, among many others. Looks like most of our wishes have come true, or will be.

Also the first post in the Unite Warriors thread was 01/21/2015. I know things from 3 years ago wont be exactly the same this time around. However, I believe I can hold off the urge to purchase these for a couple of months, until definitive news from :TAKARATOMY: comes as to what their plans are for this series. Besides it will probably take at least that long for this first wave to be fully stocked and on shelves in my area, so that is good news more or less.

When they have the equipment attached to their torsos it looks to me like they are wearing a pregnant Belly or a kid carrier when they headmaster is sitting there.

The figure is an redeco of the Leader Class Rodimus Prime from wave 1 of Power of the Primes, representing Rodimus after being corrupted by evil. Previously, it was unsure whether the figure would have Decepticon sigils or Shattered Glass purple Autobot badges. With this image, we seem to have confirmation that Unicronus will feature the latter, allowing you to seamlessly slip him into your Shattered Glass collection! Will you be picking this figure up, or do you prefer the standard version? Check out the image below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!

Excuse my language, but F@#% YES!!!!! I am so glad they went with the :SG-BOTS: for this guy!!!!! MP-10SG has a buddy to kill people with!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wanted to see this. I want to have Swoop and Slag as legs and Snarl and Sludge as arms. Snarl and Sludge in my opinion do not make good legs.

I am excited for the line!!! I am however a realist and I know these guys won't hit my area till January, so I can save up some money for them. But I cannot wait for them. Jazz is definitely a good looking figure, and I long have needed one for my collection.

Limbs look great, think I'm gonna skip the stegasaur and the brachiasaur, they look ugly as hell; all the other limbs look great.

But, can we make it official now? TF distribution is now straight effed.

There, I said it, I've still got movie bee and slash and wave 3 (hotrod/doublecross) chillin warmin up my town and now potp is rollin up in here, with nary a trace of slugslinger, cogman, overlord or anyone else? This is such garbage. I wish hasbro would just release two slightly larger waves a year to give the market time to saturate. Or maybe three, four seems to be too much for b&m retailers to handle well consistently :BANG_HEAD:

1. Sludge is a Brontosaurus, not a Brachiosaurus (man as a kid who grew up in the 80's it feels good to say that name again) ;)

2. It's ok to say TF distribution is all messed up, we all know it, no reason to have reservations on that statement.

Can anyone help me out? What are those plastic stands used to hold up the jets or helicopters?

SG just effs up my shelves so much. He is TECHNICALLY an Autobot, so he will be displayed with the Autobots. Which means no Leader-Class Decepticons.

Effing. Awesome. :BANG_HEAD:


The reason there are no Leader class Decepticons in this line is because evolution is the "Power of the Primes" lol. But you can always slap a reprolabel over his black and purple ass and have an instant generic Decepticon. That is unless you aknowledge the now defunct TFCC funpub fiction.

It's just a continuity that is basically over. It's still an official fiction.
