    You've really got me thinking this is a Powermaster. It has no obvious altmode indicators, ie wheels, and it's the only 'master' type without a modern take. Though, if they try and redo Powermaster Prime again, so help me god, I'm driving to Hasbro headquarters and burying them in my "obsolete" plastic figs.

    Later it will be repainted for Slapdash

    Dion as a weaponmaster for Ultra Magnus seems fitting . . .

    One final thing... The background ‘blueprint’ art reminds me of the preview Art we had for Combiner Wars & Titans Return (then called ‘Titan Wars’), the latter of which previewed Fort Max & a few other figures that were coming later.

    This new one? One of the preview images (other than the matrix & Bumblebee) is Unicron.

    Indeed. They're more Devcon or Alpha Trion ish, depending on the true color of the blue/purple.

    You know, that reminds me, why haven't we seen Powermasters again? I know Armada and Cybertron gave us Minicons and Planet Keys, but you'd think they would bring those guys back too.

    Pretty sure Prime Masters were meant to (in part) be an homage to Powermasters.

    The idea maybe, but not the functionality. It's a play value for the "powers" of each Prime Master, but no impact on how they transform.
