Toy News: Hasbro Asia "Power of the Primes" Dinobot boxed set announced

Online retailer TMall has posted a listing for a boxed set of Dinobots from "Power of the Primes", however the set may not be what most fans expect. Instead of a "Combiner Wars" style box featuring figures with premium decos or extra accessories, this is essentially a repack of the five mass retail Dinobots who form Volcanicus. They will be in a box featuring Volcanicus' beautiful artwork and renders of the figures on the side.
