HLJ is taking orders again for the first wave of PP figures, must be from cancellations.

Once again I've preordered this new wave of PP figures in case something goes awry and I can't get them locally.

I've done the same, but since apparently there is no difference whatsoever between this lot and the Hasbro versions (boo! ) I'll probably grab the Hasbro versions and cancel my order of these more expensive ones.

Incidentally- these are the first pics Iíve seen of Primal. He is in his all-metal-multi-mode body? Now THAT I will get!

I noticed the other day, the fifth wave of POTP toys on HLJ (for release at the end of September), and the various official images have been grouped together here.

That's four toys in the fifth wave, including this year's Titan Class figure....
PP-28 - Solus Prime/Octopunch
PP-29 - Battleslash
PP-30 - Roadtrap
PP-31 - Predaking

And news has just surfaced of the sixth wave in October having five toys being released...
PP-32 - Alpha Trion/Landmine
PP-33 - Skrapnel
PP-34 - Tailgate
PP-35 - Novastar
PP-36 - Inferno

Takara are not even investing in the packaging for the PP line. They are just putting a Japanese sticker on the Hasbro boxes.

sigh

Guess I can safely open up my Hasbro versions now; the only reason to get Takara versions is if it is too hard to get Hasbro.

Itís so disappointing they are the same - I loved the differences between Combiner Wars and Unite Warriors, especially with the likes of Groove, Strafe, Nosecone etc. Made me happy to buy both

That's so sad.


On the one hand, I'm upset that we won't get variations to pick and choose over (like when there is a great mould, you want to get extra versions of it), but on the other hand, I'm a little happy that there isn't the temptation of wanting to buy a heap of Japanese "duplicates" just because of some major or minor colour differences (like I did with the Combiner Wars).

A seventh, and possibly final, wave of POTP toys will be released in November in Japan, which covers the last of the 40 Hasbro POTP toys.

PP-37 Megatronus / Bomb Burst
PP-38 Autobot Outback
PP-39 Decepticon Cindersaur
PP-40 Rodimus Unicronus

Fingers crossed for 43 and 44 to be Repugus and Counter Punch.
