Damn it Hasbro, making me want that Optimal so much., he looks really good. Need to set aside some cash for him now.

Aw, you man the Inner Primal won't have a gorilla mode? I'm a little sad now (or am I looking at this wrong?)

Abominus is already set, but we need at least one more Autobot or two more Decepticons in order to have more than ONE complete combiner in the whole toyline. Ideally, we'd get two more fembots to complete Elita Infin1te, three more carbots for the Inferno torso, and two more cons for Starscream. Unless they've really been keeping things under wraps, this isn't looking very likely. :(


you could always take some rejects from other teams to fill out Inferno and Starscream.
Alpha Bravo and Rook are homeless now that Slingshot and deluxe Groove took their jobs back, so there's 2 limbs for Inferno.
if the rumors anout UW shuttle mode Blastoff getting a us release are true, then you can kick CW jet Blastoff off of your Bruticus, pair him up with Offroad and toss them onto Starscream.

Do we have any proof that PotP is ending after Wave 4? That and I wonder if there is anything new in that wave or if it's repack-and-one-new-figure (which makes me damn glad I don't intend to chase down Novastar becasue Slugslinger was a P A I N to chase down at retail)? Is that reallly it for Potp?

Edit: Btw I may be in the minority but I actually think this Optimal Optimus is looking quite nice. It was never intended to be a 1:1 remake of the original toy and I'm fine with the compromises it take given that beside the new gimmick they fully committed to keeping it's overall design very close to the original. Plus, in spite of how little he used in in the show, the robot and beast mode were always the main attraction for a Beast Wars figure. And, oh man, does he look like one.

Hmmm. some of the bots on the wave is missing, Flywheels and other Duocons were missing in this wave.

And i just realized Novastar was a redeco of Moonracer with only the head retool.

I just can't seem them ending the theme at wave 4. I can see Inferno just being a single figure with no limbs designed for him, but if it ends at wave 4, then only two of the five Voyagers would be complete combiners. I think we probably do get a final wave with two Decepticons to complete King Screamer and one Autobot to complete Elita InfinONEte.

No. The inner Primal turns into a skateboard for the larger monkey mode.

Combined they form the full Optimal Optimus Robot Mode.

As much as people complained about retool abuse in CW, I'd say it would be a serious shame if those new Dinobot and Terrorcons molds aren't reused for Piranacon and Monstructor. The two of which seem sadly less and less plausible, especially since they scrapped those big boxset halfway into Titans Return.

It's a shame because these are both combiners which are well within the possibility of (relatively) cheap engineering. Especially since we've seen that Hun-Gurr shares a skeleton with Silverbolt. Snaptrap would have been plausible out of Grimlock or Hun-Gurr, really. The rest of the Seacons are a joke to retool compared to that. Alas, it seems unlikely unless they announce them in Wave 5. Which may not even exist.

This guy right here is such a tease. I bet they had some Wildfly/Yokuryu plan down the line but scrapped it, at this point.

As for those wondering why I was hoping so much for Piranacon and Monstructor: I grew up with Beast Wars toys, especially those from season 2 onward. Mechanical animal and monsters are my jam so you can imagine how much I wish I could build whole combiner themes of these kind of figures.

To the child in me, they're the coolest stuff ever. Even the lackluster (by comparison) Dinobots of PotP have been a blast.

Just found the Wave 2 deluxes (minus Blackwing) at a Wal-Mart in Evansville, IN for $16.82.






I picked up the Rippersnapper, but didn't have the money or desire to get the Dinobots.

Don't forget, Leozack for the Starscream/Elita-1 mold too.

Or Skyquake. The potential was there for PotP to be truly Combiner Wars 2.0 in full but, sadly, it seems more like it will end with a whimper more than a bang.

They said the next Trilogy after this was War for Cybertron.



Heck, i would be expecting they're going to use War Within molds, i'll be totally damned.


(Back from topic)
I just wish they use Warpath on the CW Megatron mold for POTP but *sigh*

I do have to wonder if PotP is suffering from the same fate as parts of Titans Return (like boxsets), where they had a lot planned for the line, but were forced to trim back by corporate decisions. Though nothing is confirmed yet, there is a lot of evidence for big plans being made as well as evidence for the line ending sooner than anyone expected. This also reminds me of the planned Fan Club. Has anyone had the chance to ask the design team about the Transformers Fan Club? I don't know how much they're allowed to say, but some closure on a lot of loose ends would be very welcome. "Where there actually four planned box sets?" "Were the special addition figures leftover from those supposed to be released by the club?" "Any chance of releasing other cancelled figures in the near future (I really want a Godbomber)?" I know the designed team can be very tight-lipped, but there's no harm in asking.

Generations (or at least PotP) getting screwed over wouldn't leave such a sour taste in my mouth if it was scrapped for something good. However, all signs point to more crummy shelf-warming Rid-grade trash. I do wonder if Transformers 5 and Star Wars 8 under performing (and their toys too) isn't what's crippling the other Hasbro things.

Munkky wrote:Elita and Optimus are bought on sight, though Moonracer and Novastar are still on my maybe pile. Predaking does't look very appealing to me, he's not quite as good as Devastator design-wise, and I am a bit sad that Prime Master Onyx will only be sold with Predaking because I wanted every Prime Master but didn't want to add any more Titans to my collection. Speaking of Prime Masters, I love that Bludgeon turns into a weapon made for bludgeoning.


Just because I want some clarification, myself: Did they specifically say that Onyx Prime was ONLY going to be available with Predaking? Because what I heard was "this Onyx Prime, exclusive to this set." Which, to me, could be like a special Predaking deco of the Onyx Prime. Similar to the Blast Off-Megatronus.

IF they only make an Onyx Prime for Predaking, that is really going to change my display layout.
