Given that it's still a day ending in -y, we have a new set of images from unaffiliated source to Hasbro or Takara Tomy featuring an upcoming toyline and its official stock photography - today, we're looking at the Hasbro Transformers Power of the Primes (allegedly due to hit a number of retail markets in December 2018) and its Leader class toys for Optimus Prime and Rodimus Prime and Voyager class Dinobot Grimlock!

The images come from regular source on Facebook TFCN, and have been mirrored below (we had also seen Rodimus and Optimus in this news story), where the spotlight is mostly on the Dinobot leader, shown in packaging, robot, and beast mode, while the other two are simply shown in their 'evolved' modes in package. Check them out, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!

Wow, that dinosaur mode is, uhh... His robot mode sure is great! Wow what a great robot mode, right guys?

Admittedly, previous images have looked way better to me, and stock images don't exactly tend toward hitting the highest heights of quality (just ask poor decapitated Skullsmasher :-P ), so I'm still optimistic for this Grimlock. Probably a naive level of optimism, all things considered, but I sure hope it turns out to be well-placed!

But... "that one" is "this one"?

Rodimus Prime is the evolution version, so you get Hot Rod (Deluxe) and the trailer.

The trailer is the figure - most of it anyway. What you're seeing there is the Deluxe-sized Hot Rod combined with his trailer, in order to form the Leader-sized Rodimus Prime.

The trailer IS the robot mode. The POTP gimmick is evolution, which means you get a deluxe figure and a trailer for vehicle mode, and then the deluxe figure combines with the trailer to form the full leader sized robot mode. This is true for EVERY potp leader figure. So the Optimus has his G1 trailer also.

ah :BANG_HEAD: your right, my mistake #-o + on second glance it does say Evolution on the box

well...i was still partly right in the fact that you get a choice between the Evolution version and the Unicronus one and which one do you go for? (if not both)

Also you can see Hot Rod's hands peeking out from Rodimus's side

I don't recall Optimus' forelegs being dark gray. Were they always that dark? It just makes him look uglier. :SICK:

That Grimlock is lousy. The robot mode is medicore but the dino mode really looks awful. It's like the top half is a good G1 Grimlock trying to climb out of some malformed plastic crap at the bottom. Optimus looks ok... just.. standard Optimussy. And despite my inital excitement when Rodimus was first shown, the huge flaws of that figure have turned me right against it.

Think these would've been excellent figures if they didn't have to incorporate a gimmick - POTP for rodimus and optimus, combining in Grimlock's case.

I am still excited to own a whole set of dinobots and think that Ic an overlook some of rodimus' flaws (really don't like the fact his hands show in vehicle mode...).

Optimus.. the gimmick smacks too much of power master prime - he looks like a potentially slimmed down version that adorned the backs of the pretenders era toy boxes in the 80s, just need some power master prime arm cannons and yet, he looks very reminiscent of his MP10 incarnation. It comes across as a toy that doesn't quite know what it wants to be. By maybe that's just me.

I'll definitely be skipping more toys this time round. And maybe, for the OP figure, I might wait to see if they release a cool black version...

I'm skipping regular Rodimus, but will probably pick up the Unicronus version. The sweet goatee is enough for me to overlook the flaws, plus need more cons, always.

But for me, the worst part of this mold is how the deluxe figure thighs become the collarbones of the leader figure. I'm not sure why, but I really can't stand that part of the design even more than the peek-a-boo hands.

The reason Grimlock's tail look so bad is because both the G1 and MP figures had the robot legs fold up 180 degrees to have the fatter end of the feet connect to his back while the slimmer end of his knees become the tip of the tail, whereas here it is the opposite as legs don't seem to fold up at all, instead having the thinner end of the knees stay up near his back while the fatter end of the feet are left near the tip of the tail, creating a rather unbecoming T-Rex tail.

I'm still getting Grimlock, but yikes, what a terrible dino mode. Looks like I'll be keeping my FOC Grimlock for the alt mode and the weapons. Seriously Hasbro, you couldn't give him a proper sword?

However, with the visible combiner ports on the dino tail, I'm thinking you may be able to come up with some goofy fanmode of a mutated triple dino or something by slapping 2 deluxe bots on there.

That's how bad the PotP Grimlock's alt-mode is when you prefer the FoC's crummy t-rex mode. The head on the PotP figure is a lot nicer but is the rest of it really the best the toy designers could come up with?

I was cool with these guys combining if it didnt affect their other modes.

So... not cool with this.
