This guy is one of the only figures in POTP that I haven't found yet in stores. I found Inferno, Fire(Red Moonracer), MoonRacer, and a whole ton of others. Only ones I haven't found yet are Rodimus Unicronus and Optimal Optimus. Keep hunting!

How funny/sad is it, that the fan vote character is the absolute dead last to be released in the United States for PotP, even :TAKARATOMY: released it before the US market :lol: .


wow...just one day nailed it ;)

Also this is pretty unprecedented but... 34 of the 40 standard release PotP items are currently available and in stock at HTS. There are placeholders for 2 others (Wave 2 Deluxes -Snarl and Sludge) that come in and out of stock periodically.

Only Legends Slash and Deluxe Swoop (both from wave one), and PM Megatronus (from wave 3) appear to be no longer available, and wave 4 Deluxe Novastar has yet to make an appearance on HTS. -whether she will or not, remains to be seen.

Personally I've seen them all at retail except for Optimal Optimus (which will probably be coming very soon), and Predaking, which, to my knowledge will not be distributed at B&M retail in the U.S.

So I guess with the exception of the wave 2 hiccup, which Hasbro actually made good on and manufactured more of to meet demand, it seems their 12 month distribution method has worked more or less. It wasn't perfect, but definitely better than the past few lines in which *tail enders* were nearly impossible to find.

Additionally, I'm sure there were plans for Predaking to be available at TRU for US retail distribution, however, the closure of all US stores changed that. I know that to ask Walmart or Target to carry a 160 dollar Transformer is pretty risky, and probably wont happen, but I'm hoping that between now and next year Hasbro can work a deal with some national retail chain to get their big item into stores, unless of course, they decide just making it available online is sufficient moving forward.

I finally found Rodimus unicronus 6 months after sightings started and now I see him at every target. Primal I gave up and picked him up at tfsource. He arrived Monday and sadly all I can say is “eh”. I also own the sdcc version and I appreciate him so much more. I never owned the original Optimal Optimus. I was a predacon and my buddy was a maximal so we’d battle as kids.

I think he’s leaps and bounds better than the original but SDCC one is just so much better looking for me.

Thats the general concensus. I think its because out of the 3 leaders, he is the one with the least novelty/surprises.

Not even that. I think he pulls off all modes it’s that SDCC one is gorgeous. I caved and got him at a fair price honestly if I had to rate him compared to the other ones it’d be

1: Optimal Optimus
2: Rodimus Prime
4: Optimus Prime

I think they’re all great but OP is my least. I’m so burned out of Optimus Primes.

I love the SDCC Optimal, but have the most fun with the scepter!

Curiously, I found Rodimus Unicronus early on at Toys R Us. Odd since I never get anything until most other areas have long had them.

I also found one at Toys R Us really early on. Didn't see another one until Target got them in a few weeks ago.

I totally forgot I did see one at toysrus but didn’t bother thinking “I’ll find one later” didn’t realize later was half a year later. Still haven’t bother with nemesis prime.

I've realized something funny: in a line where the Leader figures all carry a removable Matrix (meant to interact with the Prime Masters, one of the line's gimmicks)....the only one who has an easily accesible Matrix and the only one where it is visible at all time is that one character who, in his original appearance, never held the Matrix of Leadership.

Funny how that works out, right?

I kinda want SDCC Primal, but mostly for the Prime Masters and the Sceptre. Though I will say, Boss Monkey himself actually looks neat in those colours. I wish the throne was a bit less...shonky though, specifically the black vac-form "seat".

I actually found my Rodimus Unicronus at Walmart, right before Walmart stopped carrying the PotP Leader Class figures at all.

Huh that's clever, but why is it blue? Shouldn't it be red slash purple?

Maybe it's less "Autobot" and "Decepticon" colors and more colors representative of each character. Blast Off has purple in his deco, Repugnus has red in his deco, and Punch has blue and red in his deco.

The Decepticon symbol has been blue in some series, such as Cybertron (not that the toys got that right). And it might have been done for better contrast when printing it.
