    I'm hoping the 3 "Prime Wars" exclusives are shown off at SDCC with release dates.... If not, someone ask them.... From what your info is saying, my assumption is that the 3 are going to be spaced out over the rest of 2018 X.X

    Well, Blast Off came out early July, Repugnus is due early August, so it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if Punch/Counterpunch came out early September.

    Blast Off is out?! I hope you just mean UK or Asian release, because I haven't heard a peep for US release...

    Yeah, I can only speak to the UK release. Looks like Robot Kingdom have him up and are shipping now though? While I’m a bit oblivious due to living where I do, they’re US based aren’t they?

    I am loving these "new" figures. Part of me is glad that they re-used the Twinferno mold again for Repugnus, but that beast mode is not that great, passable, but not great. The robot mode shines, though, and I may end up using the Titan Master Repugnus head on the body instead of the stock one.

    Punch/Counterpunch looks amazing, and far better than I had imagined a new mold for the character could turn out. The robot modes are executed fairly well, and I like that the faction symbols look like they can fold away when not in use! Brilliant callback to the original toy. A shame that he only comes with one gun, though. Might have to fish out spare guns of the G1 toy and see if they'll fit him...which reminds me, I may have to grab TWO of this guy so I can display him in each robot mode!

    Also, while not having read through all 45 pages of this thread, I pieced together the boxart that creates this cool mural, so I suppose if you display your boxes with the sides facing out, you get this neat image! (Sorry for the jankiness, the Blast Off image comes from a Google search as no one has posted the stock images of Blast Off, while the other two come from the Amazon stock pictures).

    Those two fellas behind P/CP are the Autobot clones, right? If I can get Repugnus and P/CP, I can recreate this scene, which is pretty sweet. However, that's a very big IF.

    Thanks for the clarification. The weird thing is I have never been able to get their website to load, on my work PC, phone, tablets (got 3 for me and wife), or home PC. I have tried to check them out many times, but can never get into the site.

    But it is a Studio Series toy, and they still bothered using extra parts to make a HM compatible head and socket rather than just using a molded on balljoint + head.

    They never needed to make it a linewide gimmick to reuse the tooling.

    But they released only a few Headmasters in Titans Return anyway. The vast majority of the line are just characters that have no business having the gimmick in the first place. This excuse only worked for CW because all the non-combiner characters with the combiner gimmick were pre/retools of G1 combiner characters. With TR they just made everyone a headmaster purely because they felt like it.

    Not sure it's enough to make me pick up no.2 but you have to admire their efforts in appealing to the collecting completist.
    Nice artwork though.

    Hong Kong based, with expensive (but admittedly very quick) shipping to US. Can't speak to old blighty but I'd reckon shipping to be about the same.

    I'm probably going to grab one when the price gets to the right place- I've got a spare Sideswipe head and I can just make him my 8th* Lambo brother.

    *Sideswipe, Sunstreaker, Red Alert, Tigertracks & Red Sunstreaker, Clampdown, Deep Cover (KO). Debating getting a Henkei Alert to make Cordon still . . .

    What? Pretty sure that the Club Punch/Counterpunch didn't use those same wheels.
    Um, no? Repugnus isn't a combiner either. And it's obvious Punch/Counterpunch is not a combiner part.
    Wreck-Gar is a Walgreens exclusive. Blast-Off, Repugnus, and Punch/Counterpunch are Prime Wars Trilogy Celebration figures, probably Amazon exclusive, but other E-Tailers will probably stock them.

    I'm in the US, just got this haul.
    IMG_20180710_181614.jpg

    Just kidding, I'm in the UK.
    Ironically the UK is generally the worst for any sort of distribution and if it's any consolation we generally pay at least double cost Vs US dollars.

    Thanks goodness for Kapow Toys & ID Toys.
