Toy Wiz now has a puzzling listing for a Volcanicus set. It is said to include Power of the Primes Grimlock, Swoop, Slug, Slash, Snarl and Sludge, which si very similar to the content we would have gotten in a Combiner Wars type of box set. Could this be the first hint we have to Power of the Primes boxsets? And how would you feel if it was the same toys in slightly better decos? What would make you get a set like this?

Of course, we do not know exactly what this set entails aside from the toys found in it. With this shipping at the same time that wave 2 deluxes are received by online retailers, this could simply be a listing for all the individual bots but done as one order. Also, it is worth noting that while the silhouette has a sword that we do not have yet, it is not a silhouette of the combined toy. Instead it is the Volcanicus character model from the Earth Wars video game.

The preorder is listed at $169.99 and we thank TF fan Jonathan for letting us know about this listing.

It would be a very cheap move on Hasbro's part and a kick in the nads of people that already bought the entire set.

It could just be ToyWiz themselves selling all five individually-packaged Dinobots as a bundled offer.

You can tell it's a silhouette of the Earth Wars model thanks to Swoop's launchers.

I would hope that the boxset does come with a sword, but not the upsized FOC Grimlock sword seen in Earth Wars. I would want a sword whose design was more in line with the G1 Dinobot swords, and which was possibly a combining weapon like Victorion's sword.

I would also like to see a G2 Volcanicus boxset, because I am a sucker for G2 color schemes (just look at my avatar, I think that says it all).

Personally, I would be quite peeved to be getting a G2 Volcanicus before a G2 Defensor.... There is a gaping hole in my G2 combiners where Defensor MUST be.

I wouldn't think too much about the price. Toywiz is notorious for majorly marking stuff up.

It's all of $12 more than their price for buying the set individually.

The other candidates played into it more obviously.
* Ultra Magnus: ...Enough said, really.
* Megatron: Evolving to most likely Galvatron (corresponding with Rodimus Prime) or else maybe to Super or Ultra Megatron.
* Thunderwing: Adaptation of his Mega Pretender gimmick
* Star Saber: "Evolving" from Saber to Star Saber, working basically like the original toy.
* Optimus Primal (yes, I say this is obvious): Evolving from his regular body to the Optimal Optimus body, since that fits with the Prime themeing and also works better size and engineering-wise than having him evolve to the Transmetal body.


Evolving Megatron, Thunderwing and Star Saber would have been cool. I don't think Ultra Magnus would have worked, considering his lesser known "repaint of Optimus" inner body (not to mention they already did something similar with Minimus Ambus).

Move on from the poll discussion please, it's not relevant to the thread.

Legends are $11
Deluxe are around $18
Voyagers are $25
So at retail those 6 figures should AT MOST be $108. That's a far cry from $170

Which is why Toywiz's price of $29.99 for swoop is insane.

All their prices are ridiculous including $169.99 for a box set.

Would be nice if they added some new stuff there to help with the hard-to-swallow price tag. Would be even cooler if they retooled slash to have her combine with the rest of the team

Excited for Inferno to add to my Protectobot collection. Nnot that I need him.

I might get Outback, n9t attached to Cundersaur but we'll see if I jump on him in stores

I'll take a G2 Volcanicus set please :lol: Settle once and for who red and who is green. SiGSiR, anyone?

I personally prefer the more common Green Slag and Red Snarl. The color layout is more pleasing to my eye on those than the other way 'round.

Still hoping in vain for Dinoking repaint of Volcanicus. Yes, I know Dinoking was a Monstructor repaint but an update would make more sense as the Dinobot combiner with new colors and maybe heads, either individual heads for robots or a new combiner head. Then add a 5mm port on top of Grimlock's dinohead to peg in a parts-forming yellow chest armor and he's good to go.

Sadly, it seems Takara's golden age of repaints and retools that make people feel smug about buying them is unfortunately over.

I'm not trying to be contrary, but I'm genuinely curious, as I'm sure others are (hence not sending you a PM), why discussing the Power of the Primes poll in the Power of the Primes thread is off topic? It isn't exactly timely, but it seems topical with all of the Optimal Optimus talk that it spawned from.

I'm definitely all for a Dinoking repaint of the Dinobots since that was an actual G1 dinosaur combiner that existed. I'm also wondering if there was ever confirmation of a Waverider Prime Master coming out. My Masterforce Autobot collection wouldn't be complete with just Metalhawk, Cloudburst, & Landmine.

Because when I was catching up, a good portion of said discussion centred around Trypticon and his lack of a premium release.

I seem to remember ToyWiz doing something similar with Superion & Menasor a few years ago. I double checked at the time & it wasn't a Unite Warriors set or a special box set, just the 5 separate figures sold as a bundle. I'm guessing they are doing the same thing here, but time will tell.
