    Courtesy of German licensing portal Brandora:

    We saw packaging images before (and Toys"R"Us Singapore has higher resolution versions), but this is European packaging, and also the first look at the final toys in their individual modes and configurations, since the pics we previously saw were CG renders:

    Nice! I like that Alchemist Prime resembles a boat in weapon mode.

    I doubt I will get much of these Primes pretending to be Pretenders. But I have to get that Submarauder Prime so I can make my Twin Twist spider monster.

    So if they do 13 pretender shells which 13 should they do and how many will they miss out?

    I may bite on these taking part in the joy of finding them which is normal retail.

    I'd assume the original 12 Pretenders +Metalhawk.

    But allegedly Bludgeon and Thunderwing are going to be in there too. Not sure which of the original 12 they'll replace. And I'd assume that the 4 pretender classics will find a way to be made too somehow.

    If I remember right, the 13th Prime is matrix itself, which will come with each Leader class figure, and we're due for 12 Prime Masters.

    Between the design for the Takara Legends Grand Maximus and the Black Prime Master floating around in promotional artwork I'm fairly certain we're going to get Waverider.
    Going by those leaks we got months back, we're getting Octopunch, Bomb-burst, and Bludgeon in wave 3. People have reported seeing Finback named on their invoices instead of Metalhawk and something similar happening with Submaruder and Catilla, so that might suggest we're getting those two. So there's only one slot left? I'm going to have such a strop if it's not Longtooth!

    All the children in my area are sure gonna be confused by this line when all the stores around here refuse to stock these guys like they did the Titanmasters...

    I can beat distribution issues by going online, but I feel for the kids who'll never get a chance to experience the line's gimmick as intended. It especially sucks since they shouldn't think toys at the lowest pricepoint of 5$ are gonna be rare as shit.

    :/

    look cool but do wish alchemist prime had the G1 colours especially as his details do seem to match the inner robot on G1 submarauder. Interesting how the artwork turns submarauder into more of a robot suit/helmet than the \'organic\' demon he was based on in the cartoon.

    Molds based on the first six, Metalhawk, Bludgeon and Octopunch have all been seen. That's just three more. I'm sure we'll see one or two of the Beasts and/or more from the 1989 small Pretenders Wave. Thunderwing was never shown, so they could be saving him for a larger toy. He would be a good retool/pretool for a Leader Star Saber in 2019, since they both have small robots that form jets and combine with a suit that forms an even larger jet.

    Champing at the bit to get these guys, especially Submarauder. Would like him to have his G1 colors on the inner robot, but the shell looks fantastic.

    As far as the balance of the Pretenders, Waverider is a given, as he was one of the ones sold in both the US and Japan, and we saw what looked a lot like him on the Brave Maximus shell.

    I suspect that we may get Thunderwing and Crossblades because they were similarly sold in both the US and Japan (albeit with retooled and recolored shells in Japan). But frankly just getting the original 6 and Metalhawk has me beaming in Pretender fandom, so I am just eager to see what is coming.

    Alchemist Prime pretender shell has the King Neptune look down perfectly; probably the best artwork of the line so far.

    Why can't we ever get nice huge clear pictures like we have here? That pic of Submarauder is AWESOME!!! We always get tiny crappy thumbnails where you can't see a damn thing.

    Submarauder is my favorite Pretender. I hope we eventually get big proper updates. These tiny Prime Master things are depressing.

    I really don't mind these claw weapons that come with the Decepticon Pretenders. I'm actually looking forward to it so I can equip those on Skullcruncher/Krok in their "gator-man" modes. :D
