    What's one of the best things about PotP?

    Question to anyone who has PotP Blackwing and CW Skydive : does CW Skydive's lower arm work on PotP Blackwing ?

    I'm just asking because I need to know if the tab position is the same on both of them. I don't have PotP Blackwing yet, but if the tab position of his lower
    arm is the same as it is on CW Skydive's lower arm, then I know I can take CW Skydive's arm as a guideline.

    Sorry if this is off topic here, but have we seen any pictures of the Japanese POTP leaders in box yet?

    Are you asking that if you pop Blackwing's arm off, and put it on Skydive, if it'll work? I took some pictures comparing the arms, hope this helps. IMG_2633.JPG IMG_2634.JPG

    This is the strangest image I have seen in a very long time.

    Thank you for that.

    All of Takara's figures will be the same as Hasbros.

    Thank you kindly for the effort !

    But stupid me should have elaborated :banghead: : it's about the tab hole on the insides of the lower arms - the hole which tabs onto that peg on the side of the leg when he's in jetmode.
    If I know that one has the same alignment on both figures, I can make my custom arms for Blackwing go live on my Shapeways sooner, while I'm still awaiting my e-tailer.

    So, is it placed at the same spot as on Skydive and is it the same width ?

    I want to know what the box looks like. Didn't I ask with box? I don't care about the figures. But, if it's going to be the same ugly box as hasbro, I am not going to buy them.

    Same. They've already done it with Studio Series. POTP will just have the Takara Tomy seal.

    Thanks. I just canceled my pre-orders in that case.

    It's especially dumb considering this now destroys any hopes some might have had of getting a Buster and Hydra repaint of the Dreadwing duo, with spare Prime Masters to mimic the original Powermasters.

    Call me old but I’m a marvel comics fan and this Grimlock fits the bill for me. He’s just the right size for me. Now we need the red swoop to be a reality.

    I've seen no traces of wave 2 Prime Masters in my area but I finally found Battleslash and Road trap at a target.

    Is anyone able to place the matrix or a Prime master on Roadtraps chest in robot mode? I can just barely get Micronus on there but nothing else will go on and Micronus barely tabs.

    Does anyone else have an issue of Prime Masters tabbing in?

    Otherwise in my opinion he and Battleslash are the 2 best legends to date

    Optimus and his crew (not completel) search the galaxy for Megatron and his marauders.
