    Could be wrong but I think that's actually showing Thunderwing and a slight retool as Megatronus on the right. Notice how one has the Black Shadow guns while the other has a sword. Heads look a little different too.

    It seems to me there are 2 figures (a Dark figure and a white figure) and they both combine into a base.

    It may be a bit much to ask but since retooling is already happening for making Black Shadow/Overlord into Thunderwing but...let's see some ratchet joints.

    Otherwise, huzzah, I like the mold and I'm glad to see it in use again.

    I'm okay with 2 more Overlord remold/paints into Megatronus and Thunderwing. Also according to the bottom right (CW Trailerbreaker) The "armor" can fit onto other CW/deluxes. Hope somehow we can do it with TR Breakway for a powermaster look

    That Volcanicus concept art is very cool, much much better than the pictures of the prototype.
    For the Megatronus figure, the problem is that he wouldn't share the evolution gimmick, that gives me doubts.

    It would be pretty cool if some of the Primes got proper toys. The idea of just Prima and Megatronus alone piques my interest. I got unreasonably excited when I read the "return of the Primes" and saw Solus's name there accompanied by names that have designs associated with them. That initially looked like Thunderwing but upon closer inspection, it appears to have a mouth plate. Prima?

    This all looks like concept art that has since been dropped going off that Volcanicus concept. That Trion does seem to resemble the Titans Return toy, which leads me to guess they had an aborted plan to bring the Primes back and instead opted for the Prime Masters.

    Looks like Prima/Megatronus/Thunderwing sub the Prime Master for a smaller Pretender robot, instead of having the POTP mortal(core robot) to Prime gimmick of the leader class figures. Which makes these proposed figures like Pretenders with huge shells. Not bad.

    That's trailbreaker, no idea why it's showing him as primemaster compatible, maybe the armor is backwards compatible with combiner wars deluxes

    They're just showing how the armor can be used as proof of concept, they showed Bruticus there doing the same thing

    I reckon the armour/Combiner fist probably slots into the combination plug, most likely the grooves on the sides

    It's likely just an old proof-of-concept image from when they were planning how the new POTP Deluxes would mount the hands.
