    now THAT is a Powermaster Prime update! It looks incredible!

    It appears to be definitely a trailer, given all those large panels broken up across his back and lower legs.

    I can't wait to see the vehicle mode and the smaller figure, plus the powermaster which i think is on his chest

    He's genuinely stunning. It seems I'll be passing on Striker and Rioter, but this I cannot miss out on. :D

    Is this just the same mold as 01 with detachable trailer parts, or permanently glued parts? I would presume a different colour scheme as well.

    Haven't handled Rioter, but Striker is an all-time great.

    Totally different figure, as has been noted like a dozen times, including with those pictures.

    I'd gladly pick up Thunder Convoy instead of Takara's Super Ginrai.

    Looks epic. Would be awesome if they retool this into their take on Ultra Magnus with similar features like a transforming cab.

    Let me start the "butt flap" discussion and why it's obviously better than MP 22 :)

    1) Does the Cab transform into its own robot?

    2) Is there a Godbomber planned?

    Seeing this my concerns are thrown out the window. I am in.

    Give me vehicle mode pix
    Repaint striker white and give him a car carrier trailer
    Do it all

    Actually, with Striker Noir we're at 3/4 figures being Primes. If they do what I think and release a Striker Manus based Ultra Magnus, it's 4/5. I am fine with this. Give me the Primes. All the Primes.

    1) People are saying it does. I haven't seen it.
    2) No word yet.

    I just noticed this has an ab crunch

    Something this monstrous has an ab crunch

    Rioter came out maybe three months after Striker


    I will pray this drops January before lunar new year
    Kick off 2017 with thunder

    He seems a little smaller than I would like and that cab must be pretty small.

    Can the cab even transform? It looks like it can't.
