It’s been more than 30 years in the making, but we finally have a set of Dinobots that are able to combine!
This week Adam Pawlus tackles the awesome Transformers Power of the Primes Voyager Wave 1 Set that includes the heroic Grimlock and maniacal Starscream. It’s the final podcast of the year, and what better way to end 2017 than with a look at two of the most iconic Transformers of all time.
Your favorite Dinobot is back in all his T-Rex greatness. With his clear plastic gold chest, moveable tail and fully articulated jaw, Grimlock’s new design aesthetics have obviously taken a few cues from his original Sunbow design. Meanwhile, the eager opportunist Starscream sports his same null-ray blasters and color scheme as his ’80s cartoon counterpart.
Now, what makes these – and other PotP figures – so unique is their ability to merge with other Transformers to form a variety of different combiners. That’s right! For the first time in Transformers history, we finally have a set of Dinobots that are able to combine.
Heavily inspired by the original Generation 1 line, the latest Power of the Primes line is planning to take 2018 by storm. So how do these new combiners stand up? And where does Adam see Hasbro moving from here? Find out in the latest Toy of the Week podcast.
