    Here's a thought maybe instead of having the prime Masters plug-in by the tab on the back of their legs have them connect with their little heads that way the throne could also be used to display Titan Masters in head mode.

    If it is affordable, and ships to Puerto Rico I'd be fine with and exact replica of HasTak's design. :)

    what if the wheel was a ring around the base of the throne rather than something that spins?

    if it were to happen it probably wouldnt be an exact replica for legal reasons id imagine. if nothing else i might get a buddy of mine that is just getting into 3d design and printing to whip something up

    That assumes the figure using the throne has a Matrix slot.

    Eight around the throne works as there are 8 available at retail. The ninth is Predaking, also available at "retail." So a prominent 9th slot on the throne itself gives people who picked up everything but the ToP set space for their Primes.

    That leaves the 4 that come with Primal himself to go in the scepter...which anyone who buys the figure will have in hand. And there's no concern for if the figure that sits in the throne can hold a Matrix chamber or not.

    I’d like a throne that looks like stone for this or Grimlock.

    I’d also like a metal throne for decepticons Or autobots, depending on weather it’s orange or purple.

    Considering the pre-order thing. Doesn't seem like there are any strings attached.

    What does adding something to my wish list do on hasbrotoyshop, if anything?

    TFSource also now has pre-orders up, same price. Their system works the same way. If you don't pay now and put it in your stack as a pre-order you can cancel anytime between now and when it comes in stock.

    Yeah I went ahead and grabbed a BBTS preorder, they already have my PoL, but if I can get lucky and pick up the HTS for cheaper that'd be dope.

    If BBTS and TFS have it listed, there's a chance HasbroToyShop might have more than they expected. Or they're deliberately playing the "Exclusive Now" and "Available online again later" like they did with TR Brainstorm.

    bbts and tfs are listing the takara release, not the hasbrotoyshop release. hence the $20 markup (which tracks with how nemesis prime was marked up) and the release date of january

    Honestly, as a regular PoL keeper at BBTS, there's not going to be a big difference in price - sales tax + shipping from HTS will probably get to around $15 for me. Now, I'll try HTS not for the $5 but for the expediency (I'm super entertained by the idea of getting the exclusive version of the mold before I ever see the retail one anywhere), but that price really changes it from an "I will be glued to my computer" to an "I'll check HTS if I'm free" situation.

    I'm keeping an open mind, but for reasons linking to some toyline I can't QUITE remember right now (maybe the Rock Lords movie?) I'm really attached to the idea of the throne having a component that rotates, presenting itself to the Prime, for the prime masters to be entered one by one.

    Regardless, still interested in seeing whatever concepts your friend has as initial drafts. :) 

    Not related to the slots for the prime masters or matrixes, I'd really like to see a spot in the throne setup for the peg at the top of the Sceptre of Sparks. Let Primal have that classic pose of inverted weapon between the legs, hands on the pommel.

    TFsource makes it difficult to cancel preorders. You have to contact their customer service and beg. edit: they also run your credit card the minute you hit preorder as a hold on your funds.

    BBTS 4 Life $4 shipping is a small price for a peace of mind in case something unexpected comes up.

    What?

    I've pre-ordered several times from TFSource and as long as you use the Stack you don't pay until the item is in stock. I was able to cancel my Wave 3 PotP preorder in seconds because I ended up finding them in store. Was literally cancelling the pre-order on my way to the checkout.

    My mistake. Didn't know they had that option. It's been a really long time since I've tried ordering from them. Pile of Loot is my comfort zone.
