Toy News: "Power of the Primes" is not quite over yet as new listings appear at Midtown Comics
With the release of Optimal Optimus and all the announced Amazon exclusives for the Prime Trilogy, it seemed to many fans (yours truly included) that the "Power of the Primes" was over, especially with "Siege" figures beginning to show up at US retail. However, two new listings on the Midtown Comics web site reveal two more figures are on their way! The listings are:
Both figures have a release date of January 31, 2019 (subject to change). While the listings have no official descriptions, it is not hard to guess what they might be. When "Power of the Primes" Swoop was released, the back of his packaging showed a Swoop with a red chest, matching the G1 action figure instead of his animation model. As for Ricochet it is possible he will be a redeco of "Power of the Primes" Jazz. "Ricochet" is the English name used for the character also known as Stepper who was a redeco of a previous Jazz figure!
Are these Midtown Comics exclusives? Or Diamond exclusives? Would Ricochet have a Targetmaster? Hopefully more news will be released in the next couple months. Rest assured, once these figures are released BWTF will bring you reviews and galleries to you!
