    This is another instance of a previous Generations G1 update being already significantly better than the Prime Wars offering. I think 30th anniversary Arcee is easily a better figure than her TR version, and I think RtS Wreck Gar is easily a better figure than this guy.

    Although I might get him just to line up the three exclusive bikes: Groove, Afterburner, Wreck Gar.

    Like I’ve heard before. This can just be a great little junkion in the ranks.

    Boring, top to bottom boring. The cons needed another Limb FAR more than a Wreckgar colored police bike. Boring black Prime repaint, nice to see new heads at least, but boring, tired, needless top to bottom.

    I feel we need a season 3 Autobot combiner now, Blurr, Wreckgar, Kup, Springer as limbs, Rodimus as torso.

    There hasn't been any consistency with it. Groove for example wasn't featured with Defensor either. Funny thing is that while during G1 Takara really went for "scramble city" while Hasbro went for 5 unit cohesion. Then now you see Hasbro going scramble while Takara sticks with 5 unit cohesion.
    And it does look interesting how Wreckgar is put with Inferno here. "kinda suggesting a G2 defensor".

    Btw I totally see them do a release of Ratchet from First Aid. Even though people who went to the convention or bought the set from UW already got 1. That would leave only 2 limbs left to do. A blue helicopter... Here comes Whirl. And a black car. Well they could just do a recolor of any car bot and call him Scamper.

    But we can agree it s a mess :)  I checked inferno art and he uses slug as a leg...

    The simple fact is there are not yet full pictures of the voyager art.
    Cyclonus could combine with anyone but at least his artwork showed the 2 Aerialbots and stunticons he combined with

    I mean, Battle Core Prime already kinda looks like the Magnus inner robot.

    What we need is a set of limbs for CW Prime that form a trailer. Or at least a set of Energon Drone limbs.

    What? Was it just not included? That’s odd. Could just be your issue though. Although it would be hilarious if everyone didn’t have one.

    I've used Battle Core as Ultra Magnus since day one. All he needs is a Magnus super mode head for the combined mode and a Shield that can clip over his flat bed in vehicle mode, be hand held in robot mode and pegged onto the chest in combined mode. Boom, done.

    No card with mine, either.

    Also, what's interesting is that the box doesn't cross sell the Prime Masters like the standard leader (or other PotP size class) packaging.

    Total fumble on hasbro's part. The cards gave essentially 12 mini-stories to go with each figure and promoted the prime master figures. I can see blast off not having cards as he's meant to be a CW toy and doesn't have pm armor, but nemesis prime? Just lazy :( 

    Edit: maybe at this point they knew the only way to finish a set of 12 pms was by getting the throne exclusive??
