    I don't know if this counts as me "appreciating" POTP but figured I'd post it here anyway. Just saw this the other day and I have been mad ever since. So you know that original image we saw of POTP Rodimus "Unicronus" aka SG Rodimus Prime (NYC 2017). Well turns out the animators of Machinima did too.. and freakin' designed the character with the SG Autobot logo on the chest. LOL!

    I bet you that ToyHax is happy! Lol Hasbro literally just made them a truckload of money for their stupidity.

    Just to clarify, that's Rodimus Cron in the Machinima version. The final toy you labeled is Rodimus Unicronus.

    so they are different? rodimus unicronus is different than rodimus cron? or is rodimus unicronus a powered up rodimus cron?

    I am confused

    Either way it is stupid to have the decepticon faction on the chest if what they are showing in the show is the sg autobot symbol

    Rodimus Cron on the machinima show so far is just the hot rod body so I’d assume rodimus unicronus is the rodimus prime upgraded body

    There's nothing suggestive about how she's holding the sword....

    I finally got a couple of Prime Masters on the cheap from my local TRU; they had a ton of Skullgrins and one Metalhawk left. I think I need to get another Skullgrin because it kind of looks wrong to only have one claw weapon.

    Not sure when Nova Star comes out. Wondering if I should just order the Takara one for October.

    I think POTP shipments have been slow because of Toysrus closure and that why there hasn't been any news for wave 3 yet.

    Wave 3? I'm in the Twin Cities and Rippersnapper is still the only wave 2 I've seen to date.

    We have recently gotten Legends Class figures from PotP here in Peru. I showed off Windcharger a few weeks ago, and last weekend they unpacked Slash. She didn't even make it to a shelf.

    Here we see her holding Chromdome's plasma rifle thingy... whatever you want to call it... and it really works better with Slash in my opinion. The red goes with her colors, and the scale makes it look like a rifle more than a hand blaster at her scale.

    Really getting into Masterforce right now, so can we just delay the speculated Monstructor/Dinoking boxset and just get a Piranacon?
