As is now widely known, Takara and Hasbro are producing toys that have the exact same paint layout and designs, meaning that one no longer has to choose between a Hasbro and Takara version of a character, as both are identical.

However, Takara has still proven to be a good source of new images showing figures properly transformed and in poses and modes that Hasbro might not have shown off. And that bring us to today's news, as we have new images, thanks to Amazon Japan, of Takara's Power of the Primes Octopunch with Solus Prime, Battleslash, Roadtrap, and the Predacons and Predaking himself!

These new images don't really show us much of anything new with regards to the former 3, but it does give us our best look yet at the Predacons. Of note when looking at these figures is how the combined mode kibble is being put to use, with Rampage's tail forming his gun and combining with Razorclaw's to form Predaking's gun, as well as how Predaking's feet make nice back or shoulder mounted double cannons for Torax AKA Tantrum and Headstrong. We also get a good look at the new Onyx Prime Prime Master that attaches to a matrix ring inside Predaking's chest, sort of making a Beast Matrix.

check out all the images below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

Torox and Headstrong are totally jamming out to their boombox ghetto blasters. :-P

And, sheesh, somebody give that Predaking a sandwich!

You know, the more I look at these guys, the more they grow on me. I was really disappointed initially but I think I may pick this up full price.

I was just thinking the same thing when I saw those pictures. The only other thing I need to see now is a sidewalk and one of the other predicons breakdancing nearby.

Preadaking and the Predacons just keep looking better and better in these new promotional picks. I'm really hyped to pick this set up later this year. I honestly don't understand why some people are so unhappy with this.

I think its mostly the integration of the hips/thighs into the backpacks of Headstrong and Tantrum that kills my enthusiasm for this guy. I just wished they'd kept them separated from the figures as bazookas for Rampage and Divebomb.

Maybe because everything about them looks terrible... From their hideously, over-blocky beast modes, to their hampered bot modes, all the way to the anorexic combined mode (which somehow manages to look even worse now in that three-quarter view)

Razorclaw shoulda been a chunky ultra/leader class figure [-(

I'm hoping that Hasbro will be selling Onyx separately somehow. This is an expensive set to buy just to complete the Prime Master set.

I can guarantee one hundred percent they will not sell Onyx by himself, it's like one of those 300 dollar lego sets that has a really cool exclusive figure.

Him and Metroplex are on the same diet.

I now see that Razorclaw's gun should be able to combine with Divebomb's pari to make the double barreled gun of the original.

The Rhino and Bull have terrible alt modes. Look way worse than the G1 version, they just look like boxes.

You know, maybe Predaking will be okay.

They should've renamed Tantrum to Trample. It sounds more intimidating and less like a 6-year-old that wants his ice-cream NOW.
(Yeah, yeah Torox makes for an easy trademark...)

I agree these are just bricks in the very definition of that word, why did they not simply go with the CW system and let a proper titan be this year's titan?

In my opinion Divebomb is the only individual of the Predacon set that looks good. (Both bot and alt mode categories)

I quite like Rampage, Divebomb looks odd in alt mode due to the giant back back making his head be so low. The only problem with Rampage is his robot mode face lacking in detail and definition.

Yep, if it was our only chance at the guy they would be calling him an exclusive instead of a special edition the same way they're calling the clear Megatronus that comes with Blastoff a special edition.

Single Megatronus should look like this:
Capture.JPG

The core should be orange without the yellow paint and with a pink-ish symbol and no black outline. The bot mode should have black arms like in the art and like how all Prime Masters' arms match their upper legs.

Doesn't mean there'll be a wave 4 of Prime Masters in PotP, they could be held over to wave 1 of War for Cybertron, it wouldn't be the first time we've seen lines mix.
