Thanks to Daimchoc Reports on Facebook we now have scans of packaging from upcoming Transformers "Power of the Primes" figures. Most of these figures have already been revealed before, but it is perhaps the best look at Elita-1 so far.

Thanks to fellow fan Bowser A. Flatiner we now have confirmation that "Titans Return" Arcee will be hitting at least some Toys 'R' Us brick and mortar stores! Spotted in Brooklyn, NY, the figures were priced at $26.99 USD ($2 above their online price, but hey, no shipping!). Over a month ago I believe someone had found one lone Arcee at a Toys 'R' Us store, but speculation at the time was that it was a return. This appears to be a full case of the set which includes Arcee, Leinad (aka Daniel Witwicky) and an Ultra Magnus Titan Master.
