    By the looks of the figure, there is no 5mm peg in the chest for which to accommodate the Prime Armor feature, probably no big deal for most but the option would have been nice. Blastoff, Wrek-Gar and Nemesis Prime, I wonder what's next?

    I hope the remaining Primes Masters come with something special and have their own Decoy Armor, maybe there will be another version of Onyx Prime with a beastly Decoy Armor worthy of the Beast Prime? I'm a big fan of that feature and hopefully Prima, Nexus and Amaglomous are amazingly done and given worthy figures etc. Prima as the first is a very big deal

    I'm sorry, I just can't support this one. So much more need for 'Con limbs and this is pretty much just piling on needless Autobots now. It's really not even a good mold for Wreckgar... At all.

    I wonder if he comes with a card that says all the abilities (considering his possible exclusivity) or will remain single-powered?

    The upside is the prime armor *does* have a 5MM peg so he can carry it in his hands like a shield/buckler if need be.

    I don't see why not. He appears to be a standard Deluxe, unlike Blast-Off who's looks to be a special edition.

    Does anyone know why Hasbro decided to cut this line short or if that is it just speculation? I am kind of bummed the whole Elita-1 combineer will not be a complete theme combiner. Call me silly but I like themes.I never purchased any of the combiners made up of just mismatched characters like the Optimus ones Cyclonus, Skylinx ( although I do still want him) because I kind of think they just look thrown together. I’m just hoping we do get Blast-Off for my Bruticus.

    Honestly I think it’ll be a similar case as the last two parts of the Prime Wars. We didn’t know about anything past wave 3 until news started to break about more release waves.

    I’m hope so. It would be very disappointing after the last to series we had.

    No one here knows. The most reasonable (to me) reasons floating around are (a) the most recent movie line tanked and Hasbro is re-jiggering their line-up to improve the bottom line and (b) Hasbro has enough data that "Christmas" launches for lines are a necessary strategy and had to move up WfC or risk not having another x-mas launch for 2 more years

    Maybe we can get some answers about the duration of POTP if Hasbro does an SDCC panel.

    No way, Q&As at Hasbro panels are reserved for questions such as "will you release a new toy of G1 Landfill anytime soon?"

    I'm with you on that one. Especially since it seems Hasbro is actually going to ignore Captain Obvious screaming at them to take advantage of the Elita-1 mold and give us finally a worthwhile Slipstream, and who knows... Maybe have Takara come out with a themed combiner Slipstream set a la Megatronia.

    Oh but wait. None of that can happen now. :redface2:

    There’s a G2 Defensor rumor floating around? Meh
    I ended up buying the Hasbro Protectobots and the the UW set for Groove so now I’m thinking of taking my Hasbro ones and painting them up in g2 colors and just slapping Wreck-gar on in place of a G2 Groove

    Inferno is Hotspot
    Whirl is Blades
    Wreck-Gar is Groove
    Punch is Streetwise
    Ratchet is First Aid

    Is this an actual rumor, or just wishful thinking?
