Via fellow Seibertronian Abejorro1997, we have a new video review for a figure from the second wave of Transformers: Power of the Primes toys - one that we have seen in our in-hand images covered here: Blackwing, the second jet in the old Powermaster power couple with Dreadwind!

The video, from xcorpeo, shows the vehicle mode of the Deluxe class jet, its robot mode, superjet Dreadwing mode, comparisons with Combiner Wars Cyclonus and the figures arm mode for more combination opportunities, shown here with Dreadwind again, and using Cyclonus as the torso. Check it out below, and join the discussion in the Energon Pub!

Deluxe wave 2 have now been found at wall Mart. But we would need a sighting of our own, so if anyone finds them at Walmart please let us know.

With all the posts on Elita-1, I'm surprised noone seems to have mentioned the fact that her combiner mode has her robot mode chest as a butt, and therefore, somewhat bizarrely for a transformer, has a posterior that wont quit.

I go there every week for groceries, so I'll keep my eyes peeled.

The Wal-Mart near me always, always looks wrecked and unclean so I had started avoiding it, but they have made headway in their grocery dept. looking decent. The toy area was a mess, but until these figures pop up elsewhere,.Wal-Mart is now a normal stop for me.

Just a quick question for anyone interested...
After doing a small amount of research it seems a "Unite Warriors" type of line for PotP combiners is only rumor at this point.
Does anyone have any more info about this? Those of you that remember me, I'm beyond excited about Abominus finally making his way into a line.
If there's going to be a Japanese version which is more cartoon-accurate, I'll hold off on looking in stores and bite my time.
Any insight is appreciated!

And speaking of Walmart, the couple local stores that I frequent have had a decent selection even though the actual section space for TF's has been pretty small.
I've already been tempted to pick up a couple Dinobots, but again, if these are released in a Japanese line with more show accurate paint apps, I'm more than willing to wait.

Thanks, and hope you all have been well!

The Dinobots will be released in Japan as is, same paint apps, same stickers, no differences whatsoever (same goes for all of PotP, really). The Terrorcons's status as a "Classic Combiner" may allow them to be released as a UW exclusive set, but restarting the line with just one item?

By the by, the Elita-1 Combiner finally has a name: as of NY Toy Fair 2018, it's Elita-Infin1te.

That's an...interesting? name. Yeah, still not so wanting to own her. The in hand photos are not so bad, I guess I just have no real connection to her outside a few old G1 episodes.

Hot off the presses, live from New York Toy Fair, we have some huge news: our first full look at the upcoming Power of the Primes Optimal Optimus toy!

The new leader class figure uses the same "Evolution" engineering that other POTP leaders have, allowing him to power up from the more "Season one" Styled Optimus Primal figure to his full, surfing-monkey self. Check out our photos below and make sure to stay tuned for our more professional photos coming later today! Does this figure meet your expectations? Did you want more out of it? Let us know down below, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all the latest Transformers news from New York Toy Fair!

Also included are shots of the full line diorama, and Terrorcon combiner Abominus - check it all out!

The only mode he's lacking from the original is the truck mode (which was/is arguably the weakest mode anyways). We've seen the jet mode on the Hascon teaser from last year, plus you can have the big Primal use the small one as a surfboard.

Via the official Facebook page for the Transformers brand, we have some official imagery for today's 'reveals' more or less, in some cases, from New York Toy Fair 2018 for the Power of the Primes line.

As covered in the Hasbro Brand panel at the event - which you can read here - these include characters such as Deluxes Moonracer, Nova Star, Legends Tailgate, Battleslash and Roadtrap, Voyager Elita-1, and leader Optimal Optimus. Also included is imagery of Titan class Predaking, whose discussion thread can be found here; as for the rest, join the discussion in the Energon Pub by replying to this post below!
