Word got around to Toywiz that their Volcanicus listing was getting a lot of talk and they probably got a lot of e-mail asking for clarification before preorders were done. So they came right out and clarified just what the listing was all about on the TFW2005 boards. As we had said in the initial article, odds were this was a bundle of the very same figures just sold all at once and this is what it turns out to be:

Toy Wiz wrote:Hey guys, this isn't a boxed set. It's all the figures bundled together to make it easier to put them all in a cart with one click. Sorry for the confusion!


So there you have it. Does this dissapoint you, or relieve you? This does not remove any hope that we will have boxsets in this line, it just brings us back to square one where we have no indication if there will be any. And as of right now all we can say is that there is no special Volcanicus boxset coming right now, unlike what the listing first hinted.

It was the most likely scenario. I still need to fully decide if I want him before committing myself to the knowledge that I'll have to pay more for the other two dinobots since history says that the UK won't get the wave 2 deluxes

These pictures, taken by Simon Chambers, show the three newly (officially) revealed toys from the Power of the Primes line when it comes to the voyager and legends classes. These three are all redecos with new heads and include Outback, Cindersaur and Inferno which are based on the previous Brawn, Slash and Hot Spot molds respectively.

While we already had renders of these toys, now we can see how the finished products will look like. Do these images change your minds on what you had seen previously? Will you be getting all of them?
Let us know!

Griffin stated that no one converted Inferno into his combined mode, but we do have artwork showing his torso mode for those interested.

Is it weird that the more I look at Cindersaur, the more I kind of like it?

Inferno is growing on me but I don't really have access to any affordable limbs to give him. So I guess he's going to be part of my Wreckers display, since he was one in Marvel UK. :-?

I think we'd be fine, some of the most endearing figures from G2 were funny colored, especially the leaders. Just look at Megatron alone:

Give us an explanation and we can accept just about anything. Though, there are some things they would be crazy to mess with like a Bumblebee that isn't somehow yellow/gold and black.

Except when he's red, then he's either Cliffjumper or based on the G1 red variant, or blue, then he's either Glyph or based on the Microchange blue version :lol:

Found the wave two Legends at Target today. No sign of any other wave two figures though.

Of course, but a Bumblebee by any other name isn't Bumblebee any more than Thundercracker and Skywarp are Starscream (Armada aside).

Getting tired of Bumblebees. I miss Hot Shot.

We're lucky the designers mostly stick to using the established, common knowledge or obscure. Like Dinobots combining 8-}

I'm serious, back in G1 a Dinobot Scramble City combiner was being considered, possibly as an adversary to Piranacon! It would have had a:
- Tyrannosaurus (Torso)
- Pterodactyl (right arm)
- Ankylosaurus (left leg)
- Styracosaurus (right leg)
- Dimetrodon (left arm)

If this old thread is any indication, there would indeed be backlash to everyone's colors being "wrong".

I mean, people already take issue (whether major or minor) with Optimal Optimus's torso cockpit being gray instead of orange when the rest of his surrounding chest area is correctly-colored orange. Imagine how berserk this fandom would have reacted if on POTP Leader class Optimus Prime the fake chest window pieces had been colored green or purple instead of red while the rest of his torso remained red.

Man I cant believe this POTP Leader Optimus has grey fists instead of blue ones.

So what we saw from Australia, that's it for POTP Legends?

Maybe, but we don't know for sure. Warden said at Toy Fair we hadn't seen everything from POTP yet, but it's likely he was referring to these reveals and the unseen wave 4 of Prime Masters. We know there's no Leader class wave 4, but that's the only wave confirmed to end at wave 3 that I know of.

Soon Hun-Gurr and Elita-1 will be actually available on HasbroToyShop.com - the listings are up, though the figures are shown as 'out of stock' and 'coming soon'...

Image

And yep - I'm definitely seeing Silverbolt's framework in this. The parts may all be molded differently, but it's still essentially Silverbolt's robot mode lying on it's back with the arms bent backwards, and a tail 'cap' over where the robot head should be.

You know that shared engineering concept or what have you really puts me in mind of the original G1 toys. Even if the bots where different, the sameness of transforming engineering could easily make you recall another TF.
