Thanks to Seibertron members TrypticonCarne and Blacklai, we have 2 reviews for you today, both of them centering on the recently announced San Diego Comic Con exclusive Throne of the Primes set!

First up, we have a pictorial review of the set, courtesy of Blacklai, which features a nice comparison between the new Primal and the regular retail release Optimal Optimus. We also get a good look at the throne, including the details that even have the other 8 members of the Prime vote on the throne. We also get a video demonstration of the scepter and the ring of Prime Masters. And to top everything else off, we get a good look at the final 4 Prime Masters, completing the 13. You can go to Blacklai's page or click any of the images below to view all the images as well as all of Blacklai's thoughts.

And in case you needed some video to go with your review, Kevin Liu on YouTube has a video up reviewing the set, though it is not in English.

Check out all the content below, and let us know if this is indeed an exclusive that you plan to try hard to get!

He's not bad. I like the robot mode, even though I appear to be in the minority on that opinion, and the jet mode is kinda rubbish, but the combined mode is nice.

I like him as my Starscream in my display, but I am glad they decided not to do all the seekers using this mold

You won't get banned for being annoyed or angry. Only if you break the rules enough times. What was the reason for Amazon doing that?

Question: do you guys think that the new style hands for the PoTP deluxe limbs would look better with only one thumb? Yeah, it would limit the figure to being a specific limb, but if it was screen or comic accurate, I think it would look better. Is it easy to pop off the extra thumb?

Another question: now that some time has passed, what is the consensus on PoTP Starscream? Is he a good representative of IDW Starscream?

They claimed I refused to accept the delivery on something that hasn't shipped at all what's so ever. I CANT REFUSE SOMERHING YOU NEVER FUCKING SENT, AND WHY WOULD I REFUSE SOMETHING I FUCKING PAID FOR?

Yeah, it's kinda my fault, but if would be nice if amazon prevented us when we double preorder a thing. I did the mistake TWICE. Once it was to late for return/refund and I'm now stuck with a sealed thing paid a fortune that is now worth nothing. The second time, I was quick to react and I could get a refund. But still....

Whenever I order or pre-order something off Amazon I get a message on the product page telling me I already ordered it. Does Amazon Canada not do that?

Ease up mate, I don't mind you venting your frustration (and I'm completely on your side about it) but you don't need to take it out on other members.

Is it possible they went to the wrong place and spoke to someone else who refused it? That's the only thing I can think of. It's a seriously fucked up and really flawed system if that happens.

I'll try not to. Just thought he was mocking me

Oh and update

Wonderful /s
I got an update that they know i didnt cancel it, it was a computer error caused by them sending it earlier than they meant to however they cannot fix it or resend the figure because any thing returned is put into a bin to be resold to sites like tophatter, and it's one per customer and i already bought it technically
In other words thanks to them fucking up i may be permanently out of buying the figure

anybody else get the urge that if knew who is to blame for something like to happen to just wanna find them, and throttle their neck? But dusting is always relaxing and more productive i suppose,

That may be a new feature. It may also work only for things that have already been paid, not for things awaiting payment.

I think it says you ordered it whether you paid for it or not. Pretty sure it told me I ordered a book that was on backorder for weeks. But yea, maybe it's just a US thing?

Gotta be honest. Even if I did get this Primal, that cardboard throne probably will go in the trash.

Well, I was able to take my mind of not being able to get Nemesis Prime without an Amazon Prime membership by finding the last three Terrorcons at Walmart on the way home from work! As a bonus, I even found a MAGA-less Jazz too. The part that sucks, though, is that Sinnertwin came missing one of his alt mode feet. It's the part that swings around from the wrists on his robot mode arms to complete his front dragon legs. The left arm has it, but the right one doesn't. It wasn't in the package or on the floor, in the couch cushions...it just was never there. So, now I'm going to have to hunt down another Sinnertwin and replace the faulty one. :(

On the bright side, I was still able to put Abominus together, and he looks FANTASTIC! :)

I rather like it. We don't get a lot of "set pieces" for Transformers. I've got the pop-up Autobot Ark from that SDCC G1/Age of Extinction Dinobot set from several years back. I have to find some room to display that one of these days. By the way, is anyone else planning on putting Optimal Optimus elsewhere and sitting Power of the Primes Optimus Prime on that throne instead?

Hmm...if he's available on the UK store I may get him, depending on cash at hand.

One the plus side, it says Prime day is Launch Day, so I'm sure it'll be available after it as well.

While we don't normally report on minor differences between auxiliary items like collectable cards, and while it has been some time since this detail was observed, it's still something interesting enough to warrant a mention. In the process of obtaining the various cards detailing Wave 3 Legends Cindersaur's Prime-based power-ups, collectors have noticed that different cards in the set address the character with different-gendered pronouns.

Cards of the "Alpha Trion Cindersaur" variety address Cindersaur as a 'she', while the Micronus cards instead use a male pronoun. It appears that all other cards in the set use either gender-neutral pronouns or simply omit them altogether, making for a 50/50 balance of genders in this Cindersaur figure's current fiction, insofar as it can be considered such.

Whether this "running change" of sorts is intentional on Hasbro's part or not will probably never be known for certain, but either way it makes for some interesting speculation - be it on the real-life end leading to this interesting situation, or in-fiction explanations including the welcoming of Cindersaur into genderfluid circles. Regardless, it's definitely one of the more unexpected occurrences to spawn from the dwindling 'bio-style' pack-in fiction in recent years!

Check below for an image of Alpha Trion Cindersaur's card from Seibertronian Hellscream9999 - there seems to be a lack of photos online showing the Micronus variant, so if you happen to have that version, why not post it up for others to see in the Energon Pub Forums? While you're there, feel free to discuss this situation with other board members - and for discussion ranging toward the more "political" side of things, consider sharing your thoughts in the Gender Politics thread instead! And as always, stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all future Transformers news, be it of the expected variety or otherwise.

Here's something interesting I found while looking into this: it has been suggested that the reason for this variation is that whoever wrote the bios for the cards forgot the change the gender on a Slash card from female to male for Cindersaur, or something along those lines. But while Micronus Slash uses a female pronoun and Micronus Cindersaur uses male, supporting this theory, Alpha Trion Slash's card makes no mention of gender at all. Meaning that (even if the idea of altering cards between retools is how the process works, which I doubt anyway) the change to male pronoun for Micronus and the addition of female pronoun for Alpha Trion were both "intentional", insofar as neither one was accidentally left unaltered or anything like that.

Just an interesting supplemental fact, that didn't really have a spot to go in the article proper :D
