Well this came out of nowhere, the Transformers Power of the Primes Wave 1 deluxes are now out at US retail. The sighting from Mostly Jetpacks on Twitter was from a Target in Arizona and we have been told that these have also been found in Texas. This makes the US the very first country in the world to have these at retail, beating Asian countries close to the manufacturing as well as online retailers.
Mostly Jetpacks just purchased Dreadwind but he made the most with it by giving us in hand images showcasing all the interplay at hand between this line, Titans Return and Combiner Wars. He shows us the combiner fist which has several features:

- thumbs on the right and left side which can be removed
- how they can fit on previous combiners
- how a Titan Master looks inside them
- how a Titan Master looks inside when it becomes an armor piece
- how the cover for the Prime Master hole in the hand can be used as a pistol

Dreadwind's wavemates are Autobot Jazz, Dinobot Slug and Dinobot Swoop. The retail price on these at Target was $16.99 USD.

Let us know if you find these deluxes or any other Power of the Primes toy and post it in our sightings section and sightings forum.

He sure is, all PotP Deluxes are.

And that's early! Me thinks the stores are ignoring the street dates again.

Hmm...looks as if Dreadwind ain't packaged with his wings attached. This makes me wonder two things:

1. How many other figures are gonna be partially disassembled in package?
2. Could the wings being able to detach have something to to with his combining with Blackwing/Darkwing?

Edit: Turns out that I was incorrect about my above statement. Please disregard.

Figured this would be the case soon.

There are some listings on eBay from China on Beachcomber.

Plus listings for other PotP figures from Taiwan.

I laughed by myself out loud past midnight when everyone else in the house was asleep.

Good times

And to answer your question, these seem to basically be the same as Combiner Wars but more involved where they take extra effort in hiding the combiner port in bot mode. And its cool how they found a way to use the real car front as a chest for jazz rather than doing a flap to imitate the front like on CW Prowl. So yeah, I feel these are a step up from Combiner Wars. But I do miss Thrilling 30 and their complex transformations. Granted, the new Blitzwing is better than the one from that line and I do preffer how the plstic feels on the figures in the prime Wars trilogy over the thrilling 30 figures which kept a hint of that terrible cheap plastic we got in FOC.

Now onto more news shortly, stay tuned!

Any pic of Dreadwind's limb modes yet?

We previously wrote that the first wave of deluxes from Power of the Primes was found in the US, and fans quickly took to the internet to give us some in hand images. We now have some in hand images of Autobot Jazz for you, which were found on 4chan, posted anonymously. The in hand images below show how you could armor up both his robot mode and car mode. They also give us a nice shot of his back and most importantly show us something we have not seen before: his arm mode. Like with the combiner wars toys, Jazz (and every other Power of the Primes deluxes) can also become an arm or a leg for a combiner. He is compatible with the combiner torsos previously released in Combiner Wars

Jazz's wavemates in the deluxe class are Dinobot Slug, Dinobot Swoop and Dreadwindand and he was found for $16.99 USD. Let us know if you find these deluxes or any other Power of the Primes toy and post it in our sightings section and sightings forum.

No, sorry, but since he is a retool of the aerialbots, it will basically look the same as one of them (I forget which one).

Why should it do it ? You already have the toy which can do it.

Because the trailer just sits there doing nothing when not connected to Hot Rod. Same story with Orion Pax. Coming off a series where all of the Leaders had base modes it feels shortsighted to leave the trailers doing nothing for the smaller bot. Look at Optimus Primal, you can have the smaller version independent of the bigger gorilla. That's how I feel all of the Leaders should be.

We have seen that the base for Rodimus (at least) converts into a Matrix stand. The big difference I'm seeing is that Hasbro is taking a break from advertising the worst modes (which the G1 trailers were as well). TR Perceptor's tank mode exists and was tooled for. They didn't push that. They didn't acknowledge all of Maximus' modes, right? They did acknowledge all of PM Prime's and they probably would have been better off burying the base mode in the instruction booklet.

That wasn't a Matrix stand it was just showing where the Matrix went. I'm sure fans can make up something, but it should be an advertised feature even if it isn't very good. I'm against paying a lot extra for add-ons that should already exist. I'm not looking for G1 accuracy, just something other than a lump of plastic on wheels.

KVO Prime wrote:Optimus Prime - I do want that Orion Pax but the cab on Prime in vehicle mode is awful.

Same here. I wasnt fond of the Power Master Prime from TR either, when they first showed it. But then I had the opportunity to buy it for 20$. So I will tell myself the same thing with this Optimus. If I can get him for 20$, then sure, but if not, then I wont get him and I wont regret it. I really dislike that vehicle mode so much and I already have MP 10. All I need is that little Orion but he aint worth more than 20$.

Skritz wrote:My only Thrilling 30-era mold is the movie retool of Stealth Bomber Megatron and probably the only purchese I've regretted. Yes, that's right, I'd take TR Galvatron over that hollow, flimsy and tiny mess.

I got no goddamn clue why I ever thought that mold would make a good addition to my collection. Okay well, actually I do: its a neat design with a new neat color scheme and head but sadly it failed to be worth it in the long run.

Yeah that head rocks. I love how it looks like a generations style version of a movie design. Not sure if it was worth the purchase but it is cool.

Also, while anecdotal evidence has its fun merrits, I did want to say that Transformers toys sales are up according to Hasbro. Brian Goldner was very precise when he was saying that the movie toys sold well, regardless of the poor revews the film got. Now I know we see a bunch in stores. But does anyone still see wave 1 Bee? I dont. So now lets think of that, all those cases of wave 1 and every bee sold out. Cant say TFs dont sell. Plus all the RID toys were sold out for a while until we got the new batches in.

What ticks me off though is that while I say that, there is the other evidence of it being the holiday season and every store that usually only stocks toys for the holiday season (like Bookstores, home hardware stores and the like), have Barbie, Lego,, Star Wars, Marvel and Peppa Pig, but no Transformers.

So... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Thank whoever for this picture. Now I know it doesn't look horrible and could make a passable Crasher with a little work.

It's almost like they knew ahead of time. I mean those fists really don't need to be separate pieces as it doesn't exactly look like they have a whole lot of clearance to turn. Just a shame that the forward leg movement looks to be about as useful as Classics Starscream when doing this. It's not ideal for Crasher but it's serviceable.

Although the bot mode is fine all i can say is: "Sheesh"... PotP Grimlock just looks ridiculously bulky and chunky in dinosaur mode. :lol:

Well poo, PotP already. I was hoping for a little bit longer of a break. Does this mean TR is officially dead at retail? The other things I'm wondering are; did a few retailers jump the gun, are they street dated, does this mean retailers have these cases in the warehouse, is the plan to drop them around Christmas?

It seems odd that PotP are at retail and BBTS/TFS don't have Pre-orders up yet.

Jazz looks good, but I'll probably wait on a redeco. I do like how the combiner pegs are hidden more.

The dinos look great with those grey PE feet ;)^
