Via our usual source for news on weibo, user tf-factory / 淘宝店变形金刚改造工厂, we have a look at a Voyager class figure first seen at Hascon 2017 from the upcoming toyline for Transformers: Power of the Primes - the Chosen One and Supreme Ruler of Cybertron: Starscream! Shown in the mirrored images in both stock photography for robot and jet mode, plus an in-package shot, we get to see the totally-not-combiner foot/hand parts, the Prime Master and Null Ray guns.

Also, via Facebook page Planet Iacon, we have an image from a Malaysian toy catalogue featuring the initial promotion for the line, featuring Deluxe figures Jazz and Slug, plus Leader class Optimus Prime and Rodimus Prime in and out of package, and a confirmation that the toys will be hitting retail (in some markets at least) this December - that's next month! Check it all out below!

Yeah, so I won't be using those particular combiner feet in robot mode. Or plane mode.

So....Cybertron/Galaxy Force homage for the shoulder armor, huh? He's a rather chunky Starscream, for sure, but part of me want him due to having no Starscream in my collection yet. Still think that mold would shine best as Leozack and/or Skyquake, however. Or Nominus Prime's earth mode (unlikely to happen but, hey, customs!).

I'm probably really late to the party on this, but do we know if those new PotP combiner feet will work with the Combiner Wars figures?

It's a 5mm peg, right? It should.

You know what I want to see pics of once people have that voyager figure? Starscream with Bruticus limbs (Brawl, Vortex, Swindle and Blastoff). If he isn't getting a dedicated Seekers limb set, it seems like they would be the best match for him.

I'm pretty sure that those are just supposed to be his null rays. Cybertron Starscream's special shoulder things were swords, and it doesn't look like the null rays flip out here like the swords did.

I got a bad feeling about all those stickers all over his wings. :BANG_HEAD:

Other than that I'm liking him more the more I see him.
I like a chunky bot!

Same 5mm port.

True, but seeing such huge mass on a Starscream shoulders remind me instantly of his Galaxy Force/Cybertron design. Granted, in this case it's an optional part.

The Generations line hasn't caught my attention lately unlike back in 2010-15, but I really like the look of this Starscream design! If I could get the Wave 1 Aerialbots, I would give Superion the new combiner feet.

Why must hasbro continue to ruin the toys with stickers? Go back to tampos...

But but! The detail!

.... Seriously though. DEFINITELY prefer my designs to last longer(tampos) rather than have a lot of -
usually excessive - detail(stickers).

No shots of Screamer in torso mode? :( If (big IF) I do get him, he'll be strictly torso. Both the bot and the plane modes look like sh*t.

Why couldn't the weapons in the Last Knight have detachable weapons? for megatron leader class, or even nitro? UGH

How is this related to Power of the Primes?

You know, the odds of it happening are pretty slim but I'd love to see an aerialbot heavy retool into Seekers limbs for Starscream. Possibly using the tooling for the CW Ghost Starscream and/or Armada Thrust. Won't happen, I'm sure, but let's be honest Starscream-as-a-combiner should be either with Combaticons or Seekers.

I had a strong inclination to get T30 Metroplex when it first came out,since selling all my original collection in 2007, I had no reason to start up again feeling that this was going to be just a "one off" of a classic character I liked. My son was getting random movie and animated toys, but not a huge collection since he was only 7 at the time (now he's 11). I was unable to find Metroplex at retail and that was that.

Then in 2014 at Botcon when Menasor & Superion were revealed for CW for 2015, it raised an eyebrow, but then I figured there would be only those two, and that's it. It was not until CW was in full swing, and almost ending I took the plunge, and UW cemented it for me. I'm glad I did. Including all TR and PotP reveals thus far, we are only a few characters away from what I would consider a faithful recreation of my original collection, and we've gotten some nice new ones along the way.

I'm glad TT is rereleasing Metroplex. I'm not thrilled with the price, but its better than what I would have to pay on eBay for the T30 one at this point.

See, what you've done here is turn my complaint that the figures are essentially the G1 figures with more articulation, and turned it into "I like the new lines because we're getting all the toys I used to have."
If they had been more aesthetically unique (to be fair, some of the stunticons are), but the same roster of characters, would you still have been as interested? My money is on "yes". And the complaint was most specifically to do with the people conjecturing about Scorponok and Omega Supreme, based on the look and function of their G1 toys. I am reasonably certain that new renditions of those figures will need to be more unique from the originals to function well. No partsforming OS, no giant scorpion backpack, no mountain of accessories that are only useful in one mode.

I'm getting more excited about POTP every time more news comes out about it! :D I don't like the Thicc arms but other than that i'm loving this fig so far the HFG/feet/hands will be in a bag until we get a confirmation on the full combiner. Please Hasbro for all that is good and holy repaint this into Skywarp and Thundercracker 8-). Also for all that is good and holy release them here in my area in Australia this Xmas!
