Toy News: Stock photos of "Power of the Primes" Wave 3 Terrorcons

As fans of "Power of the Primes" continue to work at finding Wave 2 of the line, Amazon has posted listings for the Deluxe Class Terrorcons from Wave 3! This set includes Blot, Cutthroat and Sinnertwin. Unfortunately at the moment the listings are only being sold at heavily inflated prices by third party sellers, but it will be worth keeping an eye out for them to come into stock at normal prices (eventually...hopefully...).

Toy News: "Titans Return" Repugnus listed on Amazon

In 2016 Hasbro released an updated version of the G1 Monsterbot Doublecross as "Twinferno" in "Titans Return". Then a year later they released both a Titan Master Repugnus and a Deluxe Class Grotusque. This seemed to round out the three G1 Monsterbot homages, but many fans were left unsatisfied by Repugnus seemingly being erm...shortchanged by only having a small figure (pictured left with his G1 counterpart).
