While preorders have gone up at several of our site sponsors for Power of the Primes Wave 1 Figures (that list can be seen here), they had yet to show up on Amazon-until now, that is, thanks to a tip from fellow Seibertronian boyatlarge! Currently, only Wave 1 Voyagers (Grimlock and Starscream), and Wave 1 Legends (Slash, Windcharger, Beachcomber and Shrapnel Skrapnel) are available to preorder, as well as Wave 1 figure Jazz. Set to be available on December 15th (with free two-day shipping for Amazon Prime members), this is a great way to start your Power of the Primes collecting!

It should be noted that while full cases of the Wave 1 Deluxes are shown by clicking the "available on December 15th" link above, those are not sold by Amazon, which means they are generally sold at a higher price (via a 3rd party seller) and are also not eligible for Prime shipping- not to mention that the cases aren't expected to be available until February.

Also, if you're out shopping for whatever holiday you celebrate, and you come across any Power of the Primes figures, let us know on in our Sightings Section (which appears on Seibertron's front page), an also on our Sightings Forum. where you can share your finds with local fans!

Are you ready to capture the Power of the Primes? Click on each picture below to be taken to that particular product's Amazon listing, and happy hunting!

Pre-ordered Grimlock, Slash, and Jazz. Now the wait begins.

Well this ruined bbts and tfsources day since they jacked up the price of the voyagers. Im still gonna wait for target since I already scored the deluxes and legends from them early.

So the dinobots are one of the biggest points of controversy with this line. So much agonizing over the fact that they are not voyagers.

Well, I did a quick comparison between Slags (G1/G2 vs PotP) and PotP in bot mode is nearly a head taller. Here is my breakdown:

Bot mode:
Size: PotP Slag is noticeably taller, G1 is thicker.
Poseability: PotP, not even close

Dino:
Size: G1 is thicker but PotP is just about as long. Basically the different is the head and hind quarters (the bot feet part).
Poseability: PotP slightly wins out here do to the arms being more poseable.

Transformation:
Kibble: PotP wins because the found something to do with the darn tail. The only purpose it served on the G1 figure was to stabilize him so he could stand upright.
Faithfulness: less of a "which is better" and more "does it transform how I expect him to based on the old toy and animation". His transformation is 95% spot onn except one omission. The dino back does not turn into wings. A minor gripe from a stellar toy.

So maybe my opinion won't sway you on the deluxes, but I will leave you with this thought... there is so much detail on these figures that an oversized KO (was it Wei Jiang doing them for TR deluxes?) is still going to look fantastic.

Dude, just wait for them to show up in stores. Wave 1 is ALWAYS overstocked. It's the later waves you have to worry about.

From my very limited experience, having gotten back into collecting recently from the start of Titans Return, I've found it was middle waves which are the worst. The first two waves generally gets a lot of stuff out there and in stock but then come the inevitable shelf-warming and crappy product rotation which result in the new mid-line stuff being understocked. The later stuff meanwhile gets to clog shelves too. How bad you may ask? Well, bad enough that if I wanted to I could army build deluxes.

It's been a chaotic couple of days. I preordered the deluxes from BBTS to start. Wasn't crazy about the prices of the other figures, and the legends I wanted were sold out. When they were available on Amazon, I jumped on the legends and Grimlock. Then when the deluxes were available on HTS, I jumped on those and canceled by BBTS PO. Hopefully they'll get Grimlock and the legends back in stock and I'll be a happy camper.

You know, I'm all too aware I'm biased from having watched Beast Wars as a kid but I'll be seriously dissapointed if there isn't a Beast Wars Megatron in PotP, even if I'm all to aware the odds are more or less 0% because Warden hate Beast Wars and only allowed in Optimus Primal presumably because Hasbro said he'd be in from the fan vote.

And yet, assuming there is no later-waves PotP Deathsaurus to remold him from in his dragon mode (a suitable match for him, since Optimus Primal has his 'Optimal' form in this toyline) would it be so hard to remold him from Grimlock? All he'd need is a new robot mode head and maybe, if Hasbro feel generous, new hips details to mimic the turbines on his Transmetal form. Again, I know it won't happen but my inner child really wants it badly.

Plus, it just seem so...wrong...to have Primal in a line without any Beast-era Predacon to oppose him. Not to mention that Megatron hasn't had a new toy since the Cybertron era. Sure, there are talk of a masterpiece but I'm talking mass retail. Again, I know, it won't happen I'm just saying if they wanted to they could totally do it because they got a brand new T-Rex mold and barring Goryu I just don't see a use for the mold unless they just keep the internal engineering and completely reshell it.

I honestly don't get what you're complaining about. I mean realistically, the entire BW line was damn near perfect to the point they're nearly impossible to improve on.

I want a T-Rex Megatron that evolves into a giant dragon, damn it.

I also want a Magnaboss that can move his head, and whose components are a little better balanced. Still, I'll never forget unwrapping that big guy in Christmas of '97....
(And yes I know the TFCC made stickers to convert Silverbolt, Prowl, and Ironhide into a Magnaboss set with some of their exclusives but it's not the same thing)

Via the Snakas blog, and reportedly from a private Philippines-based collector group on Facebook, we have images of the evolution gimmick of the new Leader class figures from the Transformers Power of the Primes toyline, Optimus Prime and Rodimus Prime - with their deluxe size inner robots, Orion Pax and Hot Rod!

We have seen the official stock photography and the images from the shows where the toys were first seen and revealed - in fact, you can check out our gallery here for Hascon 2017 and here for New York Comic Con 2017 - but this is a good look at the empty compartment that will house the inner figures, taken mid-way setup by employees preparing an exhibition. We also see how the arms will indeed be needing to separate from the body for transformation, though we don't know how they will be packaged. Check them out below!

Hot Rod looks fine (if not a little simplistic), but there's something about Orion Pax that makes him feel like he's too round to go with the armor.

Yeah well, even as a lifelong Beast Wars fan I'd have to diagree on some level. Certainly those who became show characters had good toys but the line was very hit and miss and its engineering is, in some respect, quite lacking compared to modern toys. Especially when it come to weight and stability, many of them being very backheavy.

Oh and don't forget: not all of these toys have survived our childhoods. In some respect, there are G1 figures which survived way better than those from the Beast Era, what with these ball joints which have eroded and came loose. Oh and let's not forget GPS, which claimed many iconic figures from that era, such as Megatron's transmetal form, Optimal Optimus and Dinobot II. Sure, all toys decay, but judging from my fairly large and well-preserved collection, even a careful childhood will result in toys that have disintegrated when removed from boxes.

In my case, a new Megatron is paramount since all my previous figures of the guy have broken. Had Transmetal megatron not been so fragile you are correct that its good enough 20 years later as a representation of the guy. Its engineering is good and its poseability decent and its very show-accurate. Unfortunately, the crappy brittle plastic prevents it from being so 'near flawless', as does flaking and turning to dust does to other figures, often breaking in ways that simply cannot be repaired.

What's unclear? Rodimus Prime's arms attach to Hot Rod's knees, with his shins pointing upwards to form Rodimus's shoulders. When Hot Rod is Hot Rod and not the torso of Rodimus Prime, the arms have nothing to attach to except in trailer configuration. We saw this at NYCC as well. Or Hascon. One of them.
