We have sighting from the UK - thanks to our fellow Seibertronian Crankcase79 and the UK Sightings thread - for the second wave of the Transformers: Power of the Primes figures! Deluxe class Moonracer, Sludge, Rippersnapper and Blackwing are the ones in the image below, which hails from the Smyths toy store in Leeds Crown Point and shows the £16.99 price point for each, but there are reports of Voyagers making their way across the country too.

If you find these or any other Transformers figures, why not help fellow fans and collectors out by marking it down in our Sightings Database right here?

After Onyx Prime/Predaking, there are still 5 more Primes of the 13. 5 more "pretenders" to be released? Or 5 more figures with no shells? What of the upcoming Cybertron watchamacalit line?

Masterpiece Starsabre arrived this morning and there is no need for hasbro to do a new POTP version at all, I was using the distribution lulls to fill in my huge backlog of MPs that I am missing. The torso combine gimmick just feels like a POTP leader prequel figure and the way the deluxe robots hands cleverly extend leaving hollows seems to be mechanics they have used to effect in titans return figures. Looking forward to the wave 3 deluxes if/when they arrive over here tho I wish hasbro used takaras plastic tie less packaging like the legends line.

At least one will be Waverider, retooled from Cloudburst. Predaking had a list of all 12 Prime Masters (The Arisen is not taken with the count, as he's represented by any Evolution Leader), the one coupled with Waverider should be black and off-white to grey:

Prima seems to be closest match, so that leaves Amalgamous and Nexus.

Amazon.com updated their Transformers Power of the Primes Counterpunch listing with not only a descritpion of the toy but a new name for the listing itself: Transformers Power of the Primes Punch-Counterpunch and Prima Prime

That right there gives us two solid new bits of info where we learn that the Prime Master the toy will come with is Prima Prime and that the toy can turn into both Punch and Counterpunch. The description states that this toy is meant to reflect the G1 toy and that it will be a premium release similar to the previous Arcee and Grotusque special releases.

Below is all the Amazon listings gives us for the descprition. It seems to be a completely new mold for it to achieve what is described.

Special Edition Transformers Generations Power of the Primes Figures
Deluxe Class Punch-Counterpunch figure converts between Autobot, Decepticon, and sports car modes
Punch-Counterpunch figure is designed to reflect the G1 release with 2 distinct robot modes and features premium details
Includes a special edition Prima Prime Master and comes in special edition packaging
Includes Deluxe Class Punch-Counterpunch figure, special edition Prima Prime Master figure, 2 accessories, and instructions. Ages 8 and up.


Celebrate the Prime Wars Trilogy with this special edition Power of the Primes Punch-Counterpunch figure. Featuring 2 robot modes (both Autobot and Decepticon) and a vehicle mode, the Autobot double agent was a huge hit when he was originally released in 1987. This version has been faithfully designed to reflect the original G1 figure. Plus, it comes with the special edition clear ice blue Prima Prime Master figure. The 5.5-inch scale Deluxe Class figure comes with a 1.5-scale Prima Prime Master figure and a Prime Armor accessory. Insert the Prime Master figure into the accessory, attach it to the figure's chest, and imagine Punch wields the power of a Prime. The Punch-Counterpunch figure converts from Decepticon to Autobot in 9 steps and from robot to sports car in 13 or 18 steps. The Prime Master figure converts between robot and spark modes in 1 step. Transformers all related characters are trademarks of Hasbro.

Of note, this will be the second of the "lost" Prime Masters released, after Onyx. Better, the Prime Armor is included! Calling Waverider right here and now!

YES! Now I'll never have to buy that tiny headed over priced exclusive to complete my rebirth cast!

Looks like Punch/Counterpunch is only going to have one blaster between both modes since one of the accessories has to be the Prime Master papoose.

O crap, misread. No Decoy Armor, but Prime Armor, the Hand kind... :BANG_HEAD: Still calling Micronus/Cloudburst retool.

Oh crap, I misread that, too. Puch/Counterpunch is going to be one complicated figure basically having five modes: Punch, Counterpuch, car, arm, and leg. I was happier thinking he wasn't going to be a combiner and they'd be able to do something more G1 with the figure like giving it proper four arms. But either way I'm buying two.

So that's all of the exclusives counted for, right? I wonder what the plan will be for the last two and if they regret including Megatronus a second time with Blast Off?

Repugnus, in addition to Titan Master Dastard (drat and double drat), will come with Solus Prime, who's normally available with Octopunch in Wave 3. So count a second one for the "regret" :lol:

I can't wait until this comes out! I never thought we would ever see a G1 accurate Punch any time soon. The collectors club one is nice, but expensive, and I would like something better than that.

Plot Twist: its that over priced Tiny Headed exclusive and he gets scalped so you have to pay more for him anyway.

(No, we dont know that this is who that is. Then again, we dont know its not who that is

Nexus Prime: gift set with redecos/retools of Inferno, Rook or Brawl, Vortex/Blades, Firefly/Quickslinger and Air Raid/Thrust or Skydive/Starscream. ;;)
Amalgamous: Great Shot :lol:

Is Punch/Counterpunch a combiner? Or a Titans Return figure? Or something new?

Most likely a new mold(with two robot modes) and combiner(as he comes with a prime armor).

What if Punch/Counterpunch is a retool of Jazz, with the head flipped around to go between chest and roof chests? And maybe actual rotating fists, since Jazz does have wrist joints even if they are useless, but this time they will be more useful?

Either way, stoked for Punch. Now I gotta hope that when Nemesis, Punch/Counterpunch, Blastoff, and Repugnus come in stock, I can scoop them up.

As for the final 2 Prime Masters, what if towards the end of the year we get 2 new boxsets, one with Monstructor and one with Dinoking, and they come with the final 2?

You know, what if this is a new mold or a heavy retool and the tradeoff for making 2 separate robot modes was ditching the combiner peg? The prime armor might be just that (armor) in this case.

8 steps to go from autobot to decepticon sounds like a little more than just a simple retool of an existing mold.
