    Artist Ken Christiansen, who has been sharing the packaging art he has done for Hasbro, has unveiled a new piece of concept art via his Facebook account. This time we have the Power Of The Primes Elita Concept Art.

    Here we a very interesting look at the remold and changes made over the Power Of The Primes Starscream mold. We can see what parts were changed in robot mode, Combiner mode to form Elita-Infin1te, and her new jet mode. A very interesting piece of the creative process of new character over a previous idea or concept.

    And some said Elita was the intended figure with Starscream as the remold.

    It\'d be nice if we could get more femme limbs. Add in a retooled deluxe Groove as Flareup and a retooled Rook as Strika.

    Though... this would've also been great to convert into Windblade Prime or something.

    It isn't dumb to think that. Hasbro has a pattern of doing it with Voyagers (releasing the pretool first and then the intended mold). They did it with Combiner Wars Optimus/Motormaster. Then three times in Titans Return with Sentinel Prime/Astrotrain, Megatron/Blitzwing, Optimus Prime/Octone.

    Motormaster doesn't make me think cab only.

    If they did create a new Voyager mold with Elita in mind then it'd be some kind of a land vehicle alt mode. The Combiner torso shape is a far too obvious nod to Bayverse DorritoScream for the mold not being made for Starscream. Nah. If PoTP Screamer looks bad it's only because it's a bad figure. CW/TR "pretools" are much more obvious.


    I think that they kinda had to make him cab only for the figure to scale even remotely plausible with the rest of his carbot team. But I also don't think the mold was made for Motormaster only. CW Prime and Autobot carbots were planned around the same time and this mold was made with dual purpose in mind from the start.

    Biggest dropped ball this year by Hasbro was to not make this fem-retool Seeker mold into the legit Slipstream figure we’ve been waiting for.
    Not complaining we finally got an Elita, but frankly she would’ve made a better land vehicle just going by the esthetic visual of her vehicle mode next to Prime’s. Hard to roll out together when your GF’s a Jet.
    I know I know. Stupid reasoning and yet it’s not.

    Also Blaster and Soundwave/Sky Shadow and Overlord for Leader molds, so I wouldn’t be surprised at all if Elita was the original mold.

    I am a certified dragon translator. Let me help out: "The packaging art for this figure looks better than the actual figure. The figure itself looks okay, but still, it's doesn't look as great."

    Getting some major Cyclonus vibes from this too.
    Still hoping it gets retooled again for a cybertronian Liokaiser combiner.
