    Short answer. Yes. But very, very unlikely. You'd essentially have to speak to the toy department manager and then hope they're interested in being helpful and then that they have their scanner to check and locate.

    Ughhhhhhhh. I'll comment.

    Elita looks fine. I feel like an opportunity for a Leader might've be wasted, since she could be one of those "evolution" figures, and I'm not super big on Voyager jets... but she looks fine. And while I do admittedly like the "super-model" type of femme bots we get (Not because "I need it to look hot", but because it helps stand out from what is the standard Transformer physique IMO), A. It wouldn't really feel right for Elita-1, and B. Moonracer (and her retool) has that body-type.

    Love the updated figure. Hate the front stubbles-for-legs. They're really tanking it for this fig for me. :(  I hope a 3rd party can come up with a decent solution to that.

    Have all the PotP Terrorcons figs been revealed yet? Dying to see what Abominus combined toy looks like.

    I just want to get the figure. Don’t care for people’s necessity to defend their views about how something should be viewed. Just want to discuss where to find and enjoy the figures.

    At the very least, the PotP Hun-Gurr's transformation to Abominus' torso mode is a step up from G1, where you simply had Hun-Gurr in robot mode, attached the other Terrorcons to his limbs, slapped on a chestplate and helmet, and then called it a day. Only thing I really miss about the PotP Abominus is the lack of dragon head knees that the G1 version had. Seriously, that was one of Abominus' badass points. This guy could bite you with his knees! Can you imagine how terrifying that would've been?

    Rippersnapper should be coming out alongside Hun-Gurr when Wave 2 hits mass retail. You'll need to wait until Wave 3 for the rest of the team.

    It's the same thing as Walmart.com. It's done by a third party, not an actual part of Hasbro.

    I'm just glad Abominus has the chest plate. I was worried by early stock photos as those parts weren't visible in those.

    Tbh I do wish he had the knee-teeth thing the G1 toy did tho

    By the way, does anyone know if the Terrorcons are supposed to have a "sixth member" in Legends class size like how Slash is to the Dinobots/Volcanicus? Cindersaur seems to maybe fill this role, given that he does somewhat share a similar design aesthetic to the Terrorcons, but I'm not totally sure.

    If they don't release the other Firecons it's entirely possible that Cindersaur is intended to be included in the group. Powerglide, originally a Minibot, was included as an Aerialbot after all.

    Don't have the figure in front of me, but can't you just turn the combiner thighs around so the beast claws face forward? That would simulate the beast heads on the G1 version.

    The dragon feet swing upwards and show off the hollowness of them. From the looks of it they won't display well like that.

    The upside is, it gives Steamshield a chance to make some port extenders with little dragon heads on them!

    I can't blame Hun-Grrrrrrrrrrrr for changing up his torso configuration, after all what if Blot became a leg?

    Would anyone who has Elita-1 in hand be able to take a few shots of her next to CW voyager Optimus? I'm dying to know how the two look together.

    Which is fine, I'm just clearing up that Hasbro outsourcing web services to a third party isn't the same as "that website isn't run by Hasbro and has nothing to do with them" that was posted in reply to my question about whether Hasbro typically holds stock of full waves in their webstore.
