HasCon 2017 Transformers "Power of the Primes"
On the first day of HasCon 2017 the Transformers team held a panel where several "Power of the Primes" figures were revealed! "Power of the Primes" is the third part of the "Prime Trilogy" which began with "Combiner Wars". After the panel, these figures were displayed in the Hasbro area of the exhibition floor.
Some of these items were seen at San Diego Comic-Con, but the Dinobots were a new reveal and caused much stir among fans - especially when it was revealed they would combine into Volcanicus! This means "Power of the Primes" will now encompass three play patterns:
- The "Pretender" gimmick.
- A character "evolving" such as Hot Rod turning into Rodimus Prime
The last decade or so has generally focused on one gimmick at a time from year to year. In many respects this is the most "G1" line in years with so many play pattern variations. More to come as it is revealed!
