Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron user, -Kanrabat-, has let us know that PrimeVsPrime has uploaded a new video review of the recently released Transformers Takara Selects Volcanicus!

Volcanicus is a redco of his Power of the Primes release, with each Dinobot bearing a colour scheme closer to the G1 cartoon. There's also new accessories for the combiner, including two swords that come from the Voyager Class Grimlock released as part of the Fall of Cybertron line. Volcanicus is the first Power of the Primes combiner to be released in the Selects line by Takara, and will be followed by the release of a more G1 toon accurate version of the Terrorcon combiner, Abominus.

We have embedded the review below for your convenience:



Are you getting this version of the mighty Dinobot combiner? Are you happy enough with the Power of the Primes version?

Shout out in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

That's backwards.

You're right. I'll edit that now.

That new Volcanicus is much better than the PotP original. But my 300$+ went elsewhere as you can see in my sig. Even though the original is easy to obtain on Ebay, the Select one is sure worth the extra cash.

I got one for Takara Soubdlaster saying July 11th. At least Takara Selects are consistent. Consistently late :-D :lol: :-(

It's better than the delays I've had for Amazon's Conehead pack. Still hasn't gotten in yet.

I just got an email for both. Sad thing is they delayed both of those in the store back around the same time Volcanicus got pushed back to May so I have no idea why the delay in emailing people.

How can this guy get them before me? I live in Japan and preordered the set for a friend, but I'm still waiting for them. PVP lives in the UK, non?

Probably Robot Kingdom, they were shipping them out at least by the 3/12 newsletter.

How is that possible? It's Hasbro Asia able to sell these and export them before Takara Tomy can sell them domestically?

While I do not believe PvP is a sample stealer like some other YT reviewers, I believe he may have some sort of inside source, and possibly can afford super-fast shipping to UK, thus he can get items to review before most people.

They probably just shipped them as soon as they showed up without any regard for Takara Tomy's release date. Hasbro Asia usually gets stuff roughly the same time as Takara Tomy.

But aren't there checks and rules stopping "grey import" releases, prior to "official" release dates?

In Hong Kong? I doubt it. And they're a pretty big online retailer so I doubt they'd ever be punished for it.

I suppose it's down to the official release date in Hong Kong then? Does anyone know if it's before TT? It might be time for me to start importing Official TT figures from Hong Kong to Japan.

Does anyone know of a China/Hong Kong-based site that sells Hasbro Asia/official TFs? I don't want to use an American sure, add the shipping prices are too expensive, but all the sites I know of (ShowZ, TF Direct, etc) don't seem to sell that many official TFs.

Oh My Primus and Robo Toy Base are both based in Hong Kong, I believe?

Cheers. OMP is based in Singapore, whereas the other site was really slow, didn't have any recent official TFs and stated they would inform customers of the shipping price around the time of purchase.

Thanks anyway.

PvP is an official partner to the brand, he is sent figures early to provide reviews. He confirmed as such last year I think with the SS86 deluxes.

Selects Super Megatron is still amazing. He is my new favorite transforming G1/G2-esque Megatron in my collection

That might be so, but the Dinobots are not a regular Hasbro product. He might be a partner to Hasbro US/UK, but how about Hasbro Asia? All three are separate entities.

He also gets Takara figures too. He has become one of the universal firsts for every release.
