    Actually it said he could hold both a Matrix and a Prime Master.

    But didn't the graphic show it going in Divebomb? Because I remember joking about putting five Primes in Predaking.

    Simply pointing out the logical flaw in his original statement and how you did indeed pick up on it, and gave you a very likely reason for that statement. Bias induced hyperbole, nothing more. No basis in fact whatsoever, and lacking any sort of logical backing.

    And for the record, you should know that if I want to say something about ANY fans, whether as individuals or as a group, I won't hesitate to say it. I don't use entendre to communicate my ideas, I spell them out as concisely as possible.

    I don't think they can be treated in the same way.
    11 Primes' molds are based on original pretenders.
    (some are not same character because of multitooling, but still pretenders)
    on the other hand Onyx is based on himself.

    Amalgamous may have Waverider suit.
    regarding Nexus and Prima there are some possibility.
    but Onyx, in my opinion, was developed with Predaking from the beginning. primemaster mold2.jpg

    I think both sides are somewhat right in the "truncation theory." POTP was probably conceived as an 18-month line, like the two before it, but the decision to go to a 12-month line was likely reached by the time it was released. So yes, it ran as long "as planned," though those plans were likely tweaked right up until the line hit the market. For one thing, I don't believe the original intention was to dump the last Prime Masters on the market as exclusives.
    It's kind of like a TV show that gets a 22-episode order every season, but suddenly, the network only re-ups for 13 episodes. Sure, the next season can be completed "as planned," but not necessarily as intended.

    Cool picture. Never picked up on the color scheme matching but I wasn’t into the Prime Masters.

    If Red Swoop has a toy-accurate head, he's bought in a second. If not... ehhhhhhhh.

    If Swoop has a toy accurate head (which he likely won’t) I’ll swap it with the blue one and make the red one Swoop and blue one Ravenus!

    Oh Primus I just thought of the fact there will most likely be collector cards with these... So much for that sigh of relief for finishing the chart...

    Also, hoping that these are a widespread online release, so they aren't hard to track down... Hitting F5 every 10 minutes for 2 weeks straight for Blast-Off, Repugnus, and P/CP drove me nuts... I don't need a repeat of that... Why can't Hasbro just have a nice press statement of "here's what they are, here's some pics, and here's the date & places you can order them"???

    Will there? None of the Amazon Trio had them.

    Prima, Amalgous, and Nexus...no.

    The 13th? Absolutely.

    While the amazon trio didn’t have them, wreck-gar did so it could really go either way

    Yeah I think it depends on how they are packaged. If they are on cards like Wreck-Gar then I would expect collector cards. If they are in any sort of special box I think the chances will decline.

    Wreck-Gar was like Brainstorm in that he was a regular PotP release pushed out as an exclusive. He wasn't marketed as anything special like "Select Series" or "Prime Wars Trilogy."
