Also included are shots of the full line diorama, and Terrorcon combiner Abominus - check it all out!

The only mode he's lacking from the original is the truck mode (which was/is arguably the weakest mode anyways). We've seen the jet mode on the Hascon teaser from last year, plus you can have the big Primal use the small one as a surfboard.

Via the official Facebook page for the Transformers brand, we have some official imagery for today's 'reveals' more or less, in some cases, from New York Toy Fair 2018 for the Power of the Primes line.

As covered in the Hasbro Brand panel at the event - which you can read here - these include characters such as Deluxes Moonracer, Nova Star, Legends Tailgate, Battleslash and Roadtrap, Voyager Elita-1, and leader Optimal Optimus. Also included is imagery of Titan class Predaking, whose discussion thread can be found here; as for the rest, join the discussion in the Energon Pub by replying to this post below!

Those all look incredible, especially the Predacons.

im trying to figure out what the hell bludgeons alt mode is.

im THINKING its a club/nightstick ?

if so its at least a variation as i cant believe bomburts is ANOTHER claw weapon.

STILL im getting these lads as i like the shell mode the most. that said i leave it up to better minds than mine to figure out octopunchs intended weapon mode :D :D :D :D

i'll be picking up the girls as ive got jazz already so with alita its another bot combiner for my shelf (and i like her take on the mold over starscreams)

but my true love in this line is abominus.

god he looks great, and all the vids ive seen of hun gurr have me convinced he'll be a joy to pose (those heads are just so articulate)

I'm really digging everything in PotP. All the stuff shown is pretty much a guaranteed purchase for me, but I will say that I'm kinda disappointed we didn't get any info about stuff that wasn't already rumored. I would have liked to know who the last pieces of Elita InfinONEte and the Screamer combiner are gonna be.

Pretty sure it's supposed to be a Kanabo, a Japanese studded club that Samurai used, they tend to be octagonal, and have metal studs running down the sides, not so sure it carries over to the alt mode, it might be a gun, maybe, but the part the tm uses is definitely a Kanabo

Some mixed feelings about this batch:
Prime Master sculpts look amazing, though I’m curious about octopunch’s face. Bomb-burst especially oozes evil, and bludgeon’s weapon is just unfortunate a surprising and unique piece of real-world inspiration.
Battle trap is bought on sight, looks like a huge step forward in engineering as many have already said.
Nova star’s gun is cool. And that’s it; colors look pretty atrocious in the floor pictures and the back kibble... :shock:
Elita 1 is not for me. They probably could have made a better one out of Pyra Magna, saved some of that ever-shrinking budget. Even the headsculpt looks derpy to me from the in-hand photos. Maybe it’s better in person?
Conflicted on primal. Optimal Optimus is passable (grey chest can be painted) but doesn’t have much of a place in my collection.
Razor claw looks like he belongs with the Cyberverse reveals. ‘Nuff said.

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.

HAH! Called it that Megatronus & Bomb-Burst are retools of Liege Maximo & Skullgrin :DANCE: Bludgeon is all new and so is Octopunch surprisingly enough. Both are styled after the G1 Pretenders's inner robots, nice :)

The rest looks pretty decent, but what is up with Divebomb? :shock:
