So it turns out that the big tease for Takara's next reveal, which showed Volcanicus' headsculpt turns out to be.... Volcanicus. Power of the Primes is when there stopped being a difference between the toys released by Hasbro and Takara, but now Takara is showing us their take on Volcanicus. It is very reminiscent of their Devastator over Hasbro's with more cartoon accurate colour schemes and more accessories. You can check out all the photos below. It will be released next year in February and will be just a bit over $200, which is double the price the Hasbro version cost when released at retail.

Here is more info from the Hobbymizer Facebook page.

Studio Series 86 should be doing a Leader Grimlock and Slag. I would be surprised if the others don't show up in the line

Studio Series meaning the movie versions?...if so that's another pass for me.
Easy pass for takara's version too. And that is a bummer. I was hoping for different molds. The combiner effects take away from what they could have made them look more like the dinobots IMO.......

If the rumors are true, then it's new G1 versions based on the 1986 movie. Grimlock comes with a miniature Wheelie, and Slag comes with a Daniel. Both have had listings from Wal-Mart leak

No, Studio Series 86 meaning the 1986 G1 movie versions. That's why Studio Series 86 listings have also included Kup, Blurr, Jazz, Hot Rod, and Gnaw, as well as others iirc.

Wait weren't POTP dinobots already IN a G1 color scheme to begin with this version has new fists and feet anbd metallic paint on the dinobots big deal I'll be happy with the set I have from POTP IF and that's a B-I-G IF Takara were to do Masterpiece Slag Sludge Snarl and Swoop and then Hasbro releases their versions then I'd get those

Eh... go play with Energon or Universe Dinobots.

The only flaws I see with the Power of the Primes Dinobots are size, they would look better if they were voyagers. And Grimlock is a bit out of proportion but that's because he's the combiner core.

Please do tell me which Grimlock is miles better than this one. Classics? Fall of Cybertron who's made of butter package plastic? (I mean regular release)

Ontopic: They look better but I already have the team complete so pass for me.
Extra guns as far as I can see do look good.

Hm. (1) Called it. (2) I like the originals better (with a little aftermarket goodness, anyway).

I wonder if like some video game stores, TT would offer "credit" towards this purchase if I were willing to give back to them my PorP Dinobots, maybe get like 30% off or something. They could recycle all the plastic into new/ better toys ;)

I'm sure you could do better than $60 for all five Dinobots if you sold them on ebay. A lot better.

They could recycle all the plastic into new/ better toys ;)


I'm pretty sure they couldn't do that if they wanted to.

Please tell me my eyes deceive me, I really hope that isn't clear plastic I see on quite a few dinobots..

With the Studio Series 86 versions coming this set gets the yearly "most pointless release" award.

The POTP Dinobots aren't even that good (own Grimlock, Slash and Selects Swoop and have handled Slag and Snarl) since the Combiner gimmick really does them no favors, unironically Slash is the best for this reason.

I think the original POTP versions had clear/translucent plastic as well so that's probably the case here.
