    I didn't fully ditch retail until Titans Return Wave 3, been collecting since ROTF. So glad I did too otherwise I wouldn't have any of the new movie figs beyond Wave 1 and Titans Return beyond Wave 4 and now my Titans Return & Last Knight displays are only two or three figures short of completion.

    The new figures look like SHIT!

    Just kidding... They look pretty great, also, it's me or Moonracer looks like she is not part of a combiner?

    You can see hints of being a combiner here and there. She's got a 5mm peg-hole on her feet. Her backpack is thicker than would be necessary based on the car kibble not visible. Not a slam dunk case, by any means, but hints

    You're right. I'm inclined to say that this is a saturation date vs. a release date (since this isn't a movie line which have historically had hard street dates) and given that, I think the figs start popping up in the usual places (i.e. California) a couple of weeks before that.

    I believe that it was mentioned at Botcon that Slash does not interact with Volcanicus in any official way. So, for that you are in the realm of a "fan mode" weapon perhaps.

    I really have to say that I'm super excited about the Terrorcons. They look amazing. I don't think they could've been any better than they are.

    The Shattered Glass Rodimus (Rodimus Unicronus) also looks great.

    Really loving the PotP Dinobots and Volcanicus looks amazing too.

    I will say, I am excited for this line's deluxes, but the idea of Hungrr being based on Silverbolt is slightly off-putting

    I find Windcharger thoroughly acceptable! So glad l passed on that last version. Here's hoping for a Talgate repaint, with Outback from Brawb while we're at it

    I'm having a hard time containing how excited I am about the Dinobots! Volcanicus looks fine, but the individual bots look great in both modes.. really happy about this!

    Also, hoping to see a Combiner version of Sideswipe.. maybe a retool/repaint of Jazz? I'm hoping PotP Jazz continues to grow on me but I really love my Reveal The Shield Jazz.

    With the Grand Maximus reveal showing a Decoy Suit being held, I just realized something.

    Tfwiki has a quote from Wheeljack in an old Marvel UK issue. Wheeljack and Prowl are complaining about gimmicks, and Wheeljack remarks about a "Microheadtargetmaster with a Pretender shell!"

    Well, with the Decoy Suits being weapons and a Pretender shell, 3 out of 4 ain't bad ....

    I've really, really loved what I've seen of the Terrorcons so far. I really hope they're just as impressive combined.

    Why does everyone disregard CW Shockwave?

    That does not make him not a modern Shackwave. And it's not that they're asking for a bigger Shockwave, they're saying they want a Shackwave.

    @Smitty.1981 I guess in the context of @Shadow25 post you quoted "real" = bigger.

    So I wouldn't presume to speak for everyone, but I posted the below in a few other threads and quite a few people seemed to agree.

    How frustrating that one of the best Shockwave toys is Legends class. I didn't bother picking this lad up until I saw him on the cheap in TK Max in Harrogate this May, so nearly 18 months after he came out.
    Obviously throwing the cartoon fans a bone with a teenie Shockwave yer CW Bruticus could hold was a good move, but I'm a TF:UK boy through and through, so anything short of a big, menacing Voyager class Shockwave is going to make me a bit wistful.
    I fucking love Shockwave. He was the main villain in those early TF comics I read as a nipper and he was just the best. As much as everyone always went on about how cold and logical he was, I always remember him being on the verge of totally losing his shit. Easily my favourite Decepticon leader, if not my favourite Decepticon EVER!!!
    Please give me a Voyager one PotP!
