    I'll find out the fun way IF I can get one through HasbroToyShop, they gave me a coupon for $10 off $50 purchase when my PoTP HunGrr came in the mail... which expires... Two days after Throne Munky comes out.

    @tigatron2002

    I'm gonna say no, and have all 12 primes for the ring, the 13 on the throne, that leaves the special color translucent primes to be used on the scepter and/or additional spaces on the throne for the placement of the special color translucent ones, thus if those who bought all the primemasters there is a spot for them all.

    I really think that those faces of the poll losers on the throne should of been spots for placement of extraneous primes that those of us have gotten by buying the special editions deluxes ect. so we have someplace else to display them instead of leaving them in the packages.

    Thoughts anybody?

    in my opinion on the ring throne things, i say, if possible, have the 12 slot ring come with 4 slot fillers for those that want to/can only put the retail Primemasters on the ring.

    also, cost effective and alignment neutral, to gather potential sales for Grimlock, Elita-1 thrones, ect.

    You can't call HTS and try to place an order for that item over the phone.

    Time was, SDCC drops would break the HTS website something fierce and folks resorted to placing their orders over the phone, which I'm sure caused stock issues.

    Does anyone have the Scepter in hand? Would the enigmas from the Voyager figures, without their matrix frames, fit the slots for prime masters? Then the actual prime masters could be in the halo/throne, Thirteen would be in the figure, and the Scepter would still be stocked as well.

    no, thats not how the scepter works, you plug the primemasters in standing up. the best way to stock the halo and scepter it the 12 normal primemasters in the halo with the 3 amazon special editions and 13 in the scepter

    You should be able to use Titan Masters or Prime Masters. The Enigmas are non-transformable, so without the "feet", it would be hanging loosely on the scepter.

    Not set on the throne design myself. I'd just be happy with something functional and plastic over cardboard.

    Hmmm, I watched some video's on youtube and it looks like it's possible. After plugging the "head" of the enigmas, you can slide up the bottom of the scepter, collapsing it closed, then yeah it's possible, there's just a small gap where the primes feet plug in that might make it look gappy, maybe? But it is possible.

    It’s not, the enigmas can’t unfold, the primemasters plug into the scepter unfolded so the enigmas are too fat

    Myself, over the throne I'd sooner suggest a pair of "proper" 5mm handle S1 Primal swords plus an adaptor handle similar to the Sceptre of Primes design (slotting into his palm) with 5mm ports at it's top and bottom so they could be wielded in full Optimal mode as either a single or double-bladed weapon without using the oddly placed thumb port (giving the option to make an under-&-overhand barrelled blaster or long rifle that don't look so gimpy in his hand with the stock cannons to boot, so maybe a pair of those handles or the option to buy an extra singly depending on what would be best for business), the skull mace and a rifle based on the missing original Optimal Optimus' rifle.
    I also wouldn't say no to some red twin cannons that slotted onto his forearms to homage original Primal's and some kind of adaptor that let surfboard Mini-Primal mount the stock guns on his shoulders.

    So basically I'm asking for...
