While the United States was the first to see any Power of the Primes figures at retail, they seem to be spreading out to retail in various parts of the world, as evidenced by the recent finding of the line in Singapore and then in Canada. Now, we can add Malaysia to that list! Seibertronian Jasmon has sent us pictures of his haul, found at a ToysЯUs at Queensbay Mall in Bayan Lepas, Malaysia. Jasmon found the Dinobots Grimlock, Swoop and Slag Slug at the price of R149.90 and R89.90, respectively, which works out to US $36.75 and $22.04. He also sent us some in-hand pictures of the trio!

Still no Leader Rodimus Prime or Optimus Prime to be seen, though. If you find those figures, please shoot us an email at sightings@seibertron.com, and be sure to list your own sightings on our sightings page and in your local sightings forums to help out your fellow collectors. Happy hunting, everyone!

I think one major thing that lacks (IMO) in the TR Hot Rod figure is a real view of his spoiler wings when in robot mode due to his brawny shoulders. At least with the Classics figure you didn't have this problem and it doesn't seem to show on the POTP figure. ;)^ :VEHI:

I hear ya, plus the coloration on PoTP Rodimus is better. I have the TR Hot Rod but I'll happily grab up the PoTP one too. I like most of the PoTP figures I've seen so far except for Windcharger and Starscream (why in Primus' name did they make him SO hideous?!). My Wal-Mart currently has the Legends class figures, but no sign of the Deluxes or Voyagers at Wal-Mart or the 2 Targets in my area.

He has both symbols...? Huh, well, I guess his armor is Decepticon made for his SG Autobot self.

We don't know for sure. Back at NYCC he only had SG Autobot symbols.

I'm still hoping there's a sticker sheet included so we can choose a faction for ourselves. Personally I'd rather he only have SG symboles, not because of any love for SG (only one I've got is the SS Deluxe Starscream), but because it makes more sense to me that as an Autobot tainted by Unicron he wouldn't instantly side with the Decepticons. If he comes with a Unicron faction sticker then I might just go with that instead.

John Warden denied his being SG Rodimus the Character at NYCC. His on-package bio states him to be the Heroic Autobot Hot Rod having been turned evil by Unicron's Matrix of Chaos, so he is an Evil Autobot but not of the otherworldy Shatteredverse kind. Rather, he's an Evil Autobot native to the normal Heroic Autobots/Evil Decepticons universe after having essentially been tainted by Robo-Satan. :twisted: :P

And since Unicron is not actually a Decepticon himself, being an unaligned evil on his own, greater than the evil of the Decepticons, there really isn't any reason for Unicron to be obligated to change Hot Rod's insignia into being that of the lesser evil faction that Unicron is not a part of. So Unicron would simply just change Hot Rod's colors (while re-styling his flames for kicks, apparently) without needing to bother messing with Hot Rod's original faction insignia.

Now, of course, the packaging will still label Rodimus Unicronus as an Evil Decepticon for marketing purposes since that's what Hasbro does (even all of Unicron's toys since the Cybertron Deluxe get packaged as Evil Decepticons for the same reason despite Unicron being his own evil), but that's all just real-world marketing in the end.

:PEACE:

Sure. This just so happen to be an evil Rodimus. Who has Motormaster colors. And a purple Autobot logo :SG-BOTS: . And a goatee. Sure. Totally unrelated to that SG Rodimus. :-P

Picked up Slash and beachcomber today.

Beachcomber is mediocre, his stubby legs aren't so great, and being beachcomber knocks some points off also

Slash, however, is an absolute delight. While I personally prefer my fembots to be more feminine (more like fansprojects echara), she's quite great as a figure despite. I think it would have really helped if they could have found a way to attach the raptor arms to her thighs, but she's tons of fun.

Yeah, we reported that one month ago: https://www.seibertron.com/transformers ... nus/40020/

But he hasnt been in stock ever and wont be. Its just a premature/placeholder listing that will either be removed or wont be in stock until 2018 when wave 2 comes out.

Yeah, this is just another case like Energon Downshift being based on G1 Wheeljack (even being named "Wheeljack" in Super Link) without actually being G1 Wheeljack.

I think it should just be a purple Autobot symbol, since SG Decepticons are red.

Ever since 2007, when Hasbro changed the style of the Autobot and Decepticon logos for the live action films, these slightly different symbols have been found on non movie toys, like certain versions of Masterpiece Skywarp, which can be seen below.
More than that, it seems both symbols are used interchangeably at times in the assembly line when it comes to tampographs. As can be seen in the image of Generations Payload, one has the G1 autobot insignia (with larger eyes) while the other has the movie version of the insignia. This difference creates variants in the market.
We now have a new victim in the Power of the Primes line with legends Slash. Even amongst toys found in the very same case, Slash has been found with both a G1 and Movie version of the autobot insignia. There are images below to show the comparison. From in hand images of the figure found online, it seems the version with the movie insignia is the rarer of the two.
It is currently unknown if Slash is the only one to have insignia variants such as these in Power of the Primes so check our toys and get back to us if you see that yours is using the wrong insignia.

Something I forgot to mention, but did cross my mind earlier: My local Toys R Us had whole racks filled with discount Blitzwing. While I don't intended to do so (too costly and too long) it occured to me this would certainly make for some impressive army-building for some Overcharge-type Terrorbots.

Not gonna happen but you gotta admit that army-building voyagers would have certainly been the stuff of madness!

However, this got me thinking if PotP will have any army-builder-type Legends class.
