The Power of the Primes line is pretty far back in the rear view mirror of collectors at this point, but Takara Tomy is giving it one last shot at taking the spotlight with a boxed set of Terrorcons featuring new "animation" decos and some extra weaponry.  Originally teased on Takara Tomy's Transformers PR Twitter, they would go on to a full reveal days later.  Then on October 9, Hasbro Pulse announced they would be taking pre-orders for this item!  You can pre-order now on Hasbro Pulse's site for $189.99 USD.  Pre-orders are due by November 9, 2020.  Hasbro Pulse does not list a release date but Takara Tomy's page indicates a release date of March 2021.  For now, you can check out the official product description and images below:
