One of our readers has notified us that Power of the Primes Wave 2 Deluxe Class figures are showing up on Amazon.com for 16.99. Please do note that they seem to be stocked for this price on and off so there may be some fluctuations as items are purchased and re-stocked. It may be particularly tricky to find some of the more popular figures in this wave for this price for that reason. If you are having difficulty finding them at this price, Target is having an in store sale of Power of the Primes Deluxes so that may also be a good option. Good luck!

That's the standard price on shelves in my area... Is it not like that everywhere else?

Also, totally got Moonracer for the Target sale price of 14.99 today. WITH the card that I wanted, too! :D

It's the fact that Amazon can have 3rd party (non hasbro) sellers that charge more that 16.99. When hasbro stocks them they are at that price, 3rd party sellers often want more so when the ones hasbro stocks sell out the price goes back up. It can be tricky to get them at the standard price online when they are hard to find.

I looked for her today but my local Target was host to nothing but crickets. Oh well. Happy for you though!

I finally bit the bullet a couple of weeks ago and bought them on BBTS.

At $89.99 for the full wave, and $4 shipping, that's only $1.75 over the retail $16.99 a figure. Given sales tax here is 9.25%, I only overpaid by $0.18 per figure...

As are these. One's just standing on something while the other isn't.


I still count it, but if we need to get picky, we can call them half modes, so Primal has 2.5 modes, and Optimal has 3+0.5+0.5 = 4, so 6.5 modes overall.

Still counts.
What's different about the two in the first pair?

One is by itself, the other is attached to something else in an entirely different role.

It's my head canon dude, much like SG Roddy



Primal reminds me of Energon Landmine and Bulkhead. Bulkhead's 'brute mode' consisted of combining with his drone in robot mode, and his attack mode consisted of riding on his drone in helicopter mode. Not too different from Primal.

But Primal also reminds me of Earth X Bruce Banner, so there's definitely fodder for some weird head canon there...

I snagged Moonracer on Amazon 2 days ago for $16.99. The price fluctuated quite a bit that day too. I got her in the morning around 8:30 AM Central if I remember correctly. Wave 2 has only hit my local Walmarts once here in Central Illinois. I've checked with Walmart reps and they do not have more on order currently.

I just fixed the feet on my Elita-1. Not worth the trouble, IMO.

Spreading the joint open far enough to remove the toe requires either removing three screws and disassembling the entire lower leg, or removing two screws and carefully spreading the the leg just far enough that the toe will come out without cracking the lower leg. Doing it the first way is certainly less risky, and was what I did for the left leg, but on the right leg, one of the screws was already stripped, such that I had no way to remove it.

Unfortunately, if you spread the joint far enough that toe will come out, you've spread it more than far enough for the spring in Elita Infin1te's shoulder to lock to pop through to the other side. On my fully disassembled leg, fixing that made me feel like I had simultaneously too many fingers and too few. On the partially disassembled leg, fixing it was physically impossible.

Long story short, Elita-1 stands slightly better, but in combined form one of her arms will likely require gravity to hold it in place.

That sucks! That's exactly why I was hoping later runs would fix this issue, like we saw with the running change in that one peg hole in Starscream's back for his wing assembly in robot mode. If Hasbro doesn't fix this and Takara doesn't either, I'll just leave well enough alone. Sorry that your figure came out a bit worse for your troubles, Caelus. :(

I did the repair swap in less than 10 minutes with minimal trouble or fuss.

Do what you gotta do, but I can't see leaving an incorrectly figure that's easily remedied in that situation.

I missed the memo. What's wrong with Elita 1's legs?

The feet can be assembled on the wrong sides, preventing her from planting them flat.

I had no trouble swapping them either. I even had the little spring for the combiner socket pop out, but it was easy to put back in.

I've finally gotten all of the Wave 2 Deluxes thanks to Amazon and Walmart. Sludge just arrived from Amazon today. Now I await Wave 3.

Volcanicus is pretty fun. I'm a sucker for combiners. It's so much fun to combine them.

I quite like Volcanicus too, despite his flaws. Do you have his "lovehandles" holding some of the excess guns?

Haha. Yes, I do. If I hadn't accidentally thrown away Swoop's sword I would have that in his other hand. #-o

Got the four deluxe Dinobots and checked to see how they look alongside Classics Grimlock (2006). I like it & might not get Voyager PoTP Grimlock anymore :-? <!-- ia1 -->Dinobots 3.JPG<!-- ia1 --><!-- ia0 -->Dinobots 1.JPG<!-- ia0 -->

Looking good Jungletron.

I was trying to avoid getting Voyager Grimlock, and your pics have solidified that I don't need him.
Classics Grimlock fits in with the others nicely.

Volcanicus looks great. Which I have to say, may very well make him the breakout hit of the PotP line. Dinobots combiners always had a shifty or crappy history attached to them safe for perhaps PCC Grimstone.

To each their own, but I don't think I'd be satisfied with Classic Grimlock. The gray plastic colors are way different compared to the rest of the Dinobot team. Also, Grimlock looks a lot more "updated" than the extremely G1-faithful looking Power of the Primes Dinobots. However, having a deluxe sized Grimlock does solve the inherent scale issue with the team, at least when compared only among each other. If you don't like PotP Grimlock, might I suggest the Target exclusive Age of Extinction Grimlock and Optimus Prime two pack? It's a great G1 redeco of Fall of Cybertron Grimlock.

So... my Moonracer's rear wheels don't touch the ground... am I missing something, or are the pegs on her undercarriage way too long?
