With import sites charging significanly more for the June and July releases of Takara's Deluxes in their Power of the Primes line, there was still a hope that it meant the deco might differ from the Hasbro counterparts. We now have images from Dengeki Hobby showing us that it is not the case. As with every toy part of this line, the releases are the very same as the Hasbro versions (both in the in fact that they are released individually and look the same).

However, this gives western fans something truly amazing that we never had before. The marketting technique of Hasbro and Takara have varied wildly in the past with Hasbro releasing official images of products using 3-d renders while Takara usually has high quality images of the actual finished product showing all of its possible configurations/gimmicks. Well, since both lines are the very same, this means that western fans can now be treated to this kind of marketting for toys they do not need to import.

So below you will see images of the finished figures from the Power of the Primes line, well posed, well transformed, and showing all their possible configurations in terms of accompanying accessories. These are newsworthy for both lines since it shows us the finished product for Blackwing, Sludge, Snarl, Submarauder and Moonracer in poses and angles we did not see yet. Same for Volcanicus. We also have images of the products that came out in the west but not in Japan yet like Starscream. Regarding this toy, there is no combiner name given for the Starscream combiner.

You know, in some of these shots it almost looks like the little hfg should actually be a little transformer themselves, especially these new ones. I also wish that volcanicus was a little more built up at the waist but I do like him, still not sold on starscream as a torso but I love his robot mode so yay for extra playfeatures.

Still don't like Moonracer, her legs look awful.

The Dinobots, warming up to them though i still think they would have been better if they were all voyager class figures and didn't have the combining feature.

I was really hoping Takara would do something different with Starscream since I hate the stickers on the Hasbro one and is the reason why i haven’t gotten it yet.

Well, at least I can get the Hasbro one and not feel like I missed out on anything better.

There's a posting for Rodimus Unicronus on EBay from Wichita, Kansas. The listing is here: https://m.ebay.com/itm/Rodimus-Unicronu ... SwubFaX8U-
The first thing I noticed is that it does indeed rock Decepticon symbols. That's really disappointing to see Hasbro played it safe yet again, rather than embrace the character's Shattered Glass inspiration. :(

That's pretty strange because in the final product images you could see that the trailer has :CON: symbols and Nemesis Hot Rod an :BOT: symbol. :-? And if I remember right, the chest parts are the same in normal mode and evolved Prime mode. So either that's a last minute change or it's a KO. A pretty early one #-o

If it's a KO, it's a very convincing one. It even has the batch code embossed on the back of the box... I learned that one from JelZe! :-D

Blame it on stupid toy accurate decos. If it was cartoon accurate it would have been all grey. I never understood why people want toy inspired decos on cartoon inspired molds. All those toy accurate decos homage the worst of gang molding choices, lack of paint apps, and ugly stickers.

Accepting compromises between toy and cartoon is never an easy task...

Does help break up the colors, I'll give them that.

They even changed the promo images on the box. But it's not that big of a deal. There'll be a Reprolables set for him to fix it or just buy a shattered glass faction symbols sheet ;)

Snarl... can he really be a leg with his tail like that? Hasbro's pics showed the tail open, but if the tail can stay closed then that's ideal.

This has me wondering: did the trademark for the SG insignia expire?

B/c they'd be crappy under-colored figures, one of the reasons the newer mp's aren't receiving the mass love they used to, the show colors are lazy at best, monochromatic at worst, I never buy the figure with the more subdued color scheme, and, judging from comments going back a ways, a lot of people feel that way too.

Can it expire? I feel like the color really has nothing to do with it, it still belongs to Hasbro even if it were neon orange.

Moonracer looks great, can't wait to get the new fembots, especially if Elita really is using the fixed starscream mold

We got a news tip recently sent into us by a visitor to the site, and it's a big one! Power of the Primes Leader Class Rodimus Unicronus (the Shattered Glass inspired redeco of Wave 1's Rodimus Prime) has been found at a Walmart in McPherson, Kansas! This marks the first verified sighting of the figure anywhere in the U.S. (and perhaps the world), as well as being the first Wave 2 figure to be found at retail! Thanks for sending in your sighting, J!

Have any of you Seibertronians found any new Power of the Primes figures (Wave 2 on up), anywhere in the world you happen to be? If so, please send us a photo with receipt (or a photo with the picture on the shelf at the retail outlet) to sightings@Seibertron.com, and be sure to post your sightings in your local sightings forums and on our Toy Sightings page to help out local collectors!
