I was a child of the 80’s. My brothers and I had a few toys, watched a few shows, but Visionaries never captured our imagination or interest level anywhere near the level that Transformers did. Here we are now in 2017, and someone thinks they’ll make a comeback.
Who is interested in this idea of a Transformers/Visionaries crossover story?
Still finishing your holiday shopping? Brand new series "Power of the Primes" 1st wave Deluxe, Legends, and Prime Master scales are all in-stock and ready to ship in time for Christmas from The Chosen Prime. Order yours today from the links below.
The 2018 Power of the Primes line brings together a lot of classic G1 style elements, while allowing room for modern interpretation and creativity. Such is the case with the new Dinobot’s team, who have G1 classic deco and sculpting, with modern pose-ability, combiner-ability and in this case a new “female” velociraptor team member! Unfortunately, Slash, doesn’t have a third mode to interact with Volcanicus,the Dinobot’s combined form, but her styling maintains a solidly classic esthetic, making it seem like she’s been with the team all along!
Check out her comprehensive gallery in the 2018 Transformers Section:

Saberclaw is the combined form of Bisk and Saberhorn; Primelock from Optimus and Grimlock. These figures will most likely round out the line, ser to conclude in 2018. Images are courtesy of new product listings on Amazon.
Dreadwind - Terrific Addition to the PotP Deluxe Series
His G1 faithful sculpting, deco and tooling in robot and jet modes are so good it earns my thumbs up approval and recommendation! Beyond that, he has a third mode as a combiner limb (arm or leg) to Starscream. Plus, Hasbro/Takara designers even took the time to create a combined jet form
with Darkwing (Blackwing) to form Dreadwing! Although we haven’t found his counterpart, the w2 Blackwing, we saw him up close and grabbed some photos of their combined form at HasCon.

We had been told previously to expect upcoming Takara and Hasbro versions of Generations figures to be much more similar than what we’ve seen over the past few years. —and this seems to be true. “Cheem” on Weibo has compiled several comparison images showing stock photos of Hasbro release side-by-side with the Takara counterpart. What do you think? Are the differences enough to be worth the import costs?

The toy is not listed as “in stock” yet, but keep checking back often! It sold out in less than
24 hours on hasbrotoyshop back in October. There is no telling how long you’ll have to order one this time around. Good luck!
Michael Bay Comments on the Future of the Transformers Movies
Sounds like The Last Knight box office results will mean major changes to the film franchise.
“Well 4.5 billion dollars later, 100s of millions of people saw the Transformers movies – I’d say it had great run. Any Studio would take this franchise series success. That said. Now it’s time to take this franchise in a totally new direction.”
- Michael Bay

He’s the first Power of the Primes, “Prime Master” I’ve managed to get my hands on and I have to say, I love the concept! I can only imagine how I f Hasbro had announced a complete line of Deluxe/Voyager/Leader scale figures based on the Pretender series of 1988, a chorus of fan complaint would have been overwhelming. Me, I probably liked the original Pretenders more than most other fans and am really glad Hasbro designers found a way to make us an updated and modern versions of the characters. I think incorporating this Pretender shell play pattern at this lower price is genius. I think a majority of G1 fans will want them. And Being that we get some of the first depictions of original Primes is a extra bonus. My remaining hope is that we get their story adequately told in fiction somewhere. Keeping my fingers crossed...
Special thanks to Hasbro PR for providing us with a sample for review!

I’m really looking forward to what we have coming in 2018! The next wave, which will finish the Dinobots team of combiners and start the Terrorcons is another great addition to the line. New in-package and publicity photos have shown up on (where else!?) Weibo. Images mirrored for your convenience.
Where else but Chinese social media would so many leaks continue to keep pouring out! Check out our first and best look we’ve had yet of upcoming Leader Class Blackout, part of 2018 “Studio Series” Line. These figures are designed based on the original 3-D models produced by ILM, promising a more screen accurate look than any toy version of the character we have before.
We believe that the last time one of these went to auction, it sold somewhere in the neighborhood of $20,000. Now, two storyboards, one from Transformers The Movie, amd the other (G1 episode) “City of Steel” are being auctioned on eBay. Each has been authenticated by Transformers Fan veteran Jim Sorensen.
“I've been asked to authenticate a set of Transformers The Movie storyboard, and so I have. There's an original set currently for sale on ebay and it just looks stunning. Spread the word, folks!”
