    I just thought, what if the yet-to-be-disclosed difference between the Hasbro and Takara Throne of the Primes set is that it comes with all of the Prime Masters?

    Doubt it. Hasbro nemesis prime was $50 ($10 more than regular leaders based on extra accessories). Takaras is $70, a $20 markup. Takara throne on primes has the exact same markup as their nemesis, $20 over hasbro retail. It’s likely to be the same

    We've already seen it displayed at Wonderfest 2018. Same number of Prime Masters as Hasbro version. Same box.

    No, the sign was "contents could change" or something to that effect. Because it was the SDCC box, likely without the Takara markings.

    It's a common disclaimer, and people are reading way too much into it.

    heyo, i may not be the first one to notice this, but is his staff supposed to resemble his transmetal maces or am i stretching it?

    even the section where the primemasters stand on the staff is where the maces thinned out

    That's the main reason I opened two of mine. So he's a reference to all three of Primal's forms in one figure. I really love the figure. Really fun to see BW at SDCC. Previous Primes2.png Legion1.png

    Sell a kidney.

    Jokes aside, while I'm glad that Takara will make this figure easier to obtain, I'm still not hot on the throne being made from cardboard, since it can be easily crushed or creased if one isn't too careful. I can also imagine that putting it in storage or moving house with it will be mindwrecking, since you don't know how gently or roughly the movers will handle the container containing it.
