New Zealand seems to be the hit place of 2018 for new Transformers sightings. They are now the first country to get the third wave of deluxes from Power of the Primes. This wave includes Sinnertwin, Blot and Cutthroat. These have been found at Toyworld in the city of Aukland and while Toyworld usually happens to be pricier than non specialized outlets, these were priced at $27.99 NZD which comes out to about $20 USD, which is the MSRP for these figures. Several sightings were reported on TFNZ and one of the site's members, python5003, posted in hand images of Blot on Photobucket (which we mirrored below).

Now, while this may seem early, which is it, it should be noted that the wave 2 deluxes have yet to be found in New Zealand (and is not commonly found in other parts of the world). Wave 3 is scheduled to hit stores in summer so don't expect these to hit the US tomorrow. We thank westjames/notirish for sending this news out way.

Well now I need to buy TWO Blots because that magnificent frown is getting turned into an IDW Crank Case.

Do we know who's in the other figure slot(s) of Wave 3? I assume it's a repack (or two) from a previous wave.

Blot continues to look like the standout figure of POTP. I needs him even if I don't get the rest of the Terrorcons (which I want to).

I’m at a weird spot with the Terrorcons. I really dig the looks of Rippersnapper and Blot but the others are pretty bland in my opinion. My gut(and wallet) says it’s all or nothing but I may still get those two.

LOL. My son was just asking yesterday about wave 3. I told him wave 2 hasn't even reached full saturation yet (even though we have seen them a couple times at Target). The full release, I'm hoping still is a few weeks away. On that note however, a couple of my local walmarts have received NEW shipments of wave 1 deluxes. you really can t repack wave 1, I imagine the contents are the same. I just hope these don't shelf warm preventing wave 2 from being fully distributed.

Also, I'm not sure this is a good or bad thing, but in times past, high profile YouTube toy reviewers would pay exorbitant prices from Asian distributors, mostly on eBay, to get these toys months ahead of us *regular folk*. Now I see them mostly getting them around the same time as myself (in some rare cases even after me... ;) ) .

We still need Deluxe Sludge, Snarl, and Moonracer (My son has seen them once). Also looking for the wave 2 PM's, haven't seen them at any local retailer anywhere.

Damn....wave 3 already in one of the most remote countries on earth smh. Wave 2 is almost non existant in some of the largest cities in the US. I only found Rippersnapper. At this rate Easter Island will start getting figures before us too...

Further proof that the US is no longer all that important a country.

No argument here, I never thought it was TBH. However...One would think, since Hasbro's HQ is based in the United States, and the company originated there, although they service *globally* now, that the toys would be made first available in North America. I was thinking of comparing toys distribution to Hollywood Movies. A lot of effort has been made in the last decade or so, to make more and more films day-on-date (meaning most of the world gets a new film on roughly the same day). I know its not perfect yet, but its getting there. I know to do the same for toys would be extremely difficult, but I think Hasbro could do better. Equality is great. Get the thing everyone wants, TO everyone who wants it at the same time, make everybody happy :DANCE: , except the scalpers, but then, we don't want them to be happy.

My favorite part of blot's deco is that his beast mode has a "rub-sign" :D

We know there are several Transformers Power of the Primes exclusives coming our way and we now have new images featuring packaging elements for two of them: Deluxe Wreck-Gar and Leader Nemesis Prime. These images come from the TF-Factory Weibo account.

For Nemesis Prime, we get a look at his partner, Giza, whi is a bird that transforms into his sword. This is another reference to yet another Nemesis Prime, in this case the one from the Prime line which had a transforming sword partner with the same name (although it was a shark, and not a bird).

We also get the (slightly obscured) bio which tells us that this Nemesis Prime is simply an evil clone of Optimus Prime. For Wreck-Gar, we get the character art that will appear on his packaging.

You can see actual images of these previously revealed toys here and here.

Um, weren't sites going to band together and NOT post leaks like this that are basically done to milk an image, like a Ken Burns documentary?
