Some infomation from TFW2005 on the line


Things that are noticable Deluxes have combiner limbs pegs.
leader class toys will be two fold hotrod inside rodimusprime, optimusprimal inside optimal optimus, each leader comes with a matrix that pulls apart (you could us this to make a matrix head)
legends class can still fit the master size in them
from a video i watched voyagers will come with armor that the master can attach to e.g starscream is supposed to come with sheilds
each deluxe comes with a master size as well, dreadwing is supposed to come with liege maximo and the other 12 primes are going to get toys like this or maybe other size classes


Generations:

2018 last chapter of Prime Wars Trilogy
Optimus Primal is promotional image on Power of the Primes
Optimus Primal will be holder of Matrix of Leadership
Talking about the story now
12 Primes
Prime Masters hold power, even the spark, of original 12
Liege Maximo comes with Dreadwind
Cards come with each figure to expand on what each Prime Master’s power is
“Prime cards” 12 to collect
Pretenders are now Decoy suits
Prime Masters hide in Decoy suits and they can transform
Beachcomber legends class
Deluxe Dreadwind
Wave 2 Blackwing (Darkwing’s new name)
Combine in jet form to form Dreadwing
Deluxe Wave 1 Jazz
Voyager Wave 1 Starscream
G1 IDW mixed style
Leader Wave 1 Rodimus Prime
Figure is Hot Rod, then combines with trailer to become Rodimus Prime
Prime Masters connect like mini-cons to all size classes
Legends – they drive
Deluxes/Voyagers – head
Leader – matrix
looks same as TR

Rodimusprime

well this gimmick has me woundering what other toys are yet to come, megatron into galvatron or starsaber and so on, im really happy he is been done this way i wounder if there is any base mode from the shell, i doubt it but im fine with there not being one.

Starcream

a voyager starscream wow its about time, as much as i love my seeker mold its been a little overdue for him to be a voyager of course this means we should get the others as well in time, it is another starscream its hard to get overly excited

dreadwing and darkwind

wow didn't see these two coming, they are split apart by being in different waves which i guess is fine, there heads do look a little off i cant put my finger on it, i would of liked these two to be voyagers

Beachcomber

yay finally i will be able to retire my old one, these legends class minibots really do improve apon what was released previously

Skullgrain, im happy with pretenders being done in this size class like this, it means the large amount of them will be reasonably cheap to get

Damn. A proper Dreadwind and Darkwing. And they combine. I'll have to break my non MP rule to get those two. :)

Really happy for a voyager Starscream, but man does he look chunky. Is that the IDW design?

I really hope Hasbro bring out Thundercracker and Skywarp in the same line. They did for the leader versions right?

So the Prime Masters also work as headmasters?

I read on one of the news sites it's meant to be a cross between IDW and G1 Pretenders. You can put those Prime Masters in the arms on the voyagers hence the blocky arms and legs.

lets not forget the voyagers are combiners you can see the port in starscreams arms, so i presume the others are inside his legs

That's a link to a video of the panel. Power of the primes starts at around 20 minutes in. Worth a watch IMO.

And just when I was about to sell off all my chug collection, a couple of those entice me to complete the set.
Liking beachcomber and Rodimus, starscream can stay on the shelf where it came from.
no sig as photobucket nerfed it all
