I wonder how much shelfwarming those 'Power Surge' figures are going to do. It seems like the other figures that size/quality level did a lot already.

On the bright side,they seem to have decent articulation. Can't really tell if that applies to the legs, but certainly to the arms!

I dont know about you but I cant find a single 3 step Grimlock or Optimus (in original colours) at any store. This lets me know that these will sell just fine, just like everything else.

my problem is that my local walmart will order several cases of these guys and then one case of deluxes and act like they dont sell.

Alright, now allow me a few moments to utterly gush. Actually, we'll start with Quillfire first. He is a fun little dude! I love how stocky he is, all his quills, and he is very unique! good articulation, good altmode, and even a fun monster truck mode!

Now for gushing: I love Thunderhoof. He is my favorite character from the show, so I am biased, but he is a great figure! His alt mode is an awesome blue combine and it literally shows no robot mode parts save the head, but that makes it fun! His transformation is very involved for being so simple and he pulls off one of the greatest robot modes of the line. He has no backpack, no kibble. instead, he has huge beefy arms making him look like the strong brute he is. His antler, oh the antlers. YES!! Finally a mold gets it right! and his legs are long and have great hooves. He is extremely dynamic and is in my opinion the best con we have gotten from the line, just barely beating Fracture. paint is in there, but overall it's where it really needs to be. And his gun stores in both modes and he's just a badass!

so, some pictures:

Oh dear. After having seen so many looks at the Takara versions of Quillfire and Thunderhoof, those colors on the Hasbro ones look downright gaudy by comparison (Thunderhoof's antlers/fork should be blue, not black!).

But they also don't look bad. The scheme still works and while Takara does have more paint, this one works very well on its own. :MAXIMAL:

Its KILLING me too! I saw Thunderhoof at the store today and I could have gotten him, but at the same time I was thinking about waiting to find the Takara version at a decent price. Him being such a good mold, does it make up for the paint scheme, or does it thus eserve a better one. Oh decisions!

Quillfire is not bad at all though. Especially in robot mode, the Hasbro coours work fine and have a decent variety.

Don't worry Will. With the minicon pack luck around my area I doubt it will be long before we see them! Though I still need to find the wave 3 minicons... :MAXIMAL:

I know this will sound mean but I dont mind if my area skips wave 3. I really want those minicon weapons. I wouldnt mind if wave 3 and 4 come out at the same time like waves 1 and 2 did though.

Yeah, I want to get to the weapons too, but I do want several of the wave 3 and 4 guys, like Ransack, Jetstorm, and others :MAXIMAL:

Thanks to Entertainment Earth we have a look at the new stock images of the upcoming Power Surge Optimus Prime! Power Surge Prime is about leader class sized and is set to be released in June of this year according to the listing. The listing showed off an image with his stock photos, which included the powered up robot mode, vehicle mode, him in his packaging, his little minicon partner Aerobolt and, for some reason. his cab separate from the rest of the vehicle, perhaps suggesting a separating cab feature? Either way, we have mirrored the image below for your enjoyment. Check it out, and let us know what you think in the comments section below.

I cant believe the truck cab is partforming, this is beyond simplification. Its just giving up.

Makes you wonder why they wouldn't just domesticate Supreme Mode Prime from Takara. :-?

Maybe he looks like this in season 3 and the Takara mold was just too different to remold into resembling this form.

Or, the Takara mold is just too complex for/too far outside the range of difficulty for this line's target audience. After all, Hasbro's current mindset for its mass retail lines seems to be "keep things simple".

True. Burrito Supreme is pretty complex relative to the rest of the line, and ya this is obviously a new iteration of OP.

I would like to know why the cab is separate. after botcon and other shows, I didn't get the impression it was partsforming :MAXIMAL:

I'm hoping it can at least reattach to his back in robot mode or something.
