Friend to the site, Scottimus Prime, found the deluxes, primes masters and voyagers from Transformers Power of the Primes at a Lake Grove Toysrus in Long Island, New York. This is the first sighting for Voyagers Starscream and Grimlock at US brick and mortar retail as well as the first worldwide sighting for the Prime Masters at brick and mortar retail. The Wave 1 Prime Masters include Liege Maximo and Skullgrin Decoy Armor, Micronus and Cloudburst Decoy Armor, as well as Vector Prime and Metalhawk Decoy Armor. You can read more about all upcoming waves that we know of here.

Regarding the voyagers, we also have a pictorial review of Starscream for those who want to know more about the figure before purchasing. And there might be some hesitation because this news also shows us the price these voyagers are going for: $29.99 USD. This is the MSRP price jump indicated by Hasbro in their official product descriptions. The Prime Masters also show that price jump in comparison to Titan Masters, where they are $5.99 USD, so one dollar more. The Deluxes however, show a price of $16.99 which is less than the $19.99 MSRP. You can see all MSRPs per class here.

These toys are also listed on the Toysrus website but not currently available. We did place a screenshot below to show the prices of each class. These are the hottest toys right now among the fan community so please post your findings in the sightings section and sightings forum.

That 29.99 dorsnt actually scare me that much, TRU usually prices a few bucks higher than the others.

I've been blind for not noticing Grimlock's "Dinobot" prefix. Don't worry, it's a separate trademark, probably for consistency across the other Dinobots who do require prefixes. Think we can expect the same for the Terrorcons?

... and think unified subgroups are called out now?

Yeah, it looks like the team combiners are getting their subgroup names attached to their individual names, as the Terrorcons looks to have "Terrorcon" prefixes on them too.

Got grimlock and daaaaaaaamn he’s good. Very solid and has beefy ratchets. The gauntlets work worryingly well and give off a more savage vibe than a sharpened sword. The torso doesn’t fall apart unless you actively try and take him out of the mode. He’s gotten a fairly bad rap but but isn’t nearly as bad as some people claim he is imo.

How solid is the connection of his gold robot chest piece in dinomode?

But it remains to be seen if they're all separate trademarks or not. From official Hasbro use, only Sinnertwin seems to not require a prefix out of the Terrorcons, which is... ironic, with Prime Twinstrike :lol:

Where would be a good place to start... the Pretenders, the "Duocons", the Dinobots?

Sadly I didn't see any Leaders, But I guess I should've thought to take a Picture, I was too excited to actually FIND them available.
However all the Legends, Prime Masters, and Deluxes were there for certain. I was actually trying to see anything related to the Prime1 Studios Onslaught, sadly Nothing new has happened since It was teased.

TF fan Nevermore has informed us of several new listings on Amazon.com for Transformers Power of the Primes. Most of these are placeholder listings, especially for wave 3 toys. But for the wave 2 deluxes, we are treated to high resolution images we previously only saw with a watermark, along with the number of steps. The full listings available will be posted below. The real fun part of the remaining placeholder listings is that we get a confirmation of all the toys leaked earlier this year along with confirmation of their names. For instance, we now know for certain that we will get an "Outback" (to hell with you Steakhouse!) along with the following corrections nevermore pointed out:
- The Battletrap component included in Legends Class wave 2 is named "Battleslash", not "Battleclash" as some people mistakenly read from the Hasbro leak.
- Tailgate having the same Hasbro product code number as Roadtrap was an error. Roadtrap is really E1158, while Tailgate is actually E1159.

Here is a list with links to the Amazon listings followed by images and product descriptions for those that were available. Clicking the images will let you see them bigger.

Prime Masters wave 2:
Alchemist Prime
Alpha Trion

Prime Masters wave 3:
"Bludgeon" (Quintus Prime)
"Bomb-Burst" (Megatronus)
"Octopunch" (Solus Prime)

Tailgate
Battleslash
Roadtrap

Legends Class wave 3:
Cindersaur
Outback

Deluxe Class wave 2, with photos:

Dinobot Snarl

Terrorcon Rippersnapper

Deluxe Class wave 3:
Terrorcon Cutthroat
Terrorcon Blot
Terrorcon Sinnertwin

Deluxe Class wave 4:
Novastar

Voyager Class wave 2:

No worries, when I was talking of pictures I meant for the leaders. So since they werent there, its all good.

Some of the listings have "Autobot" and "Decepticon" prefixes:

- Autobot Outback
- Autobot Tailgate
- Decepticon Bludgeon
- Autobot Moonracer
- Autobot Novastar

That largely falls in line with earlier instances, though "Autobot Outback" is surprising. I don't suppose the USTPO no longer allows Outback Stakehouse the monopoly on the trademark, especially in areas they never use them in?

They could be trying to avoid problems with Subaru.

You gotta love the spell-checkers over at Amazon... "the mighty Autobus or the destructive Deceptions."

Cringingly shudders.

Darkwing looks aderpable but I suspect its more the original design than this specific toy. I'm just glad he can act as a combiner limb in addition to the combination with Dreadwind. If only because I want to assign these two as limbs for Nova Prime/BC Optimus should I want to display him in combined mode.

I just hope we get more stand-alone decepticons in later waves to give him (or any spare torso such as Starscream) a complete limb set.

Edit: You know what? With some way to attach a Titan Master port and some new beast head piece, Rippersnapper would make a great body for Squeezeplay/Cancer/Crashbash.
