The first legit voyager Starscream! Is this figure truly more than meets the eye-- of course it is-- but the podcast discusses just how it might be better than you think.

Next up was the somewhat underwhelming deluxe class reveals: Jazz, Dreadwing and Blackwing.

The return of Pretenders, a perfect peaceful minibot, and the Power of the Primes 'theme' falls into our optical field next... What happened to the rest of our headmasters and targetmasters? Why is Sluglsinger the last new figure in Titans Return (wave 6)? What's going on with the Titans Return Arcee and Titanmaster Ultra Magnus? What? What. What!

We take a few minutes to chew over the con exclusives, GI JOE, and what might be in store for us at HASCON. Has Hasbro started a Revolution?

Our SDCC quest goes into its final evolution as we take the last bit of the podcast or so to discuss IDW at SDCC, Transformers fiction, and the massive reveal of... another entire book starring Thundercracker (playing Starscream). We all hope that Josh-boyfriend and Buster are prominent characters as well. There was some announcement about something called a 'UNICRON' so we talk about what that could be, and finish with a little TF VS. ROM #1 and a lot of Optimus Prime #9 gushing. I'm hoping for a Jon Snow moment for our beloved issue's hero, but am afraid the ending will stay more Ned Stark...This issue was a can't miss.

You did it! You made it to the end, and probably saw the second episode of the new season of Game of Thrones while I was focused on doing this news write-up. Please do not share any spoilers!

Drinking game for this episode (sub coffee for alcohol if desired): take a drink every time one of the leaks yesterday debunks some PotP speculation.

Please do not actually do this. You may die.

So adding to the discussion about the Power of the Primes story or lack there of.
It would have been really easy to say that someone went around and collected the sparks of all the Primes, or parts of their sparks and put them into the Prime Masters. The Prime Masters can use the unique powers of each Prime when they combine with other Transformers. Thus acting as power ups for Transformers.

It also become really cool when you think how Overlord can wield the power of two Primes at once or how the Prime Masters can take over the Transtectors of the Titan Masters by replacing the Titan Masters as heads.

I'm really looking forward to this line.

And perhaps an evil power can turn one evil, like maybe Rodimus Prime will use the evil prime powers and become like the purple, black, and grey masterpiece version of himself. Gotta use some imagination, but maybe someone could make a repaint of that? ;)

That's indeed the rumor going around. Assuming HTS doesn't implode, that probably makes it a little easier than having to stalk Walgreens, etc.
