    I'm pretty sure he has appointed some deputies at this point. Mr Chaos is one I think.

    This. I think that was the main benefit of leaks for me. Being able to budget accordingly for everything I might want in advance has been a great help. I dunno if many people realize, but these figures can get expensive and missing out on something can often mean paying hefty late tax later on. Unless you can confidently drop money on everything coming out in a year, I can't imagine lots of folks not stressing out on certain things they may or may not be able to pay for at that moment in time. Sure, a hotly requested character being revealed can be great, but not when you suddenly realize you don't have funds for it because not having a leak didn't allow you to squirrel money away.

    Well, not strictly everything, but I do recall collecting all or nearly all of the mainline WFC trilogy lines, for instance. My point is that unless you have enough disposable income to drop wherein paying for a whole year's line doesn't faze you, I cannot imagine a situation where pipeline reveals without prior leaks won't stress some people oug in a financial sense.

    I mean, the best way to budget is to pick and choose. Say what you want, but because I **ONLY** buy G1 and Beast Wars stuff to a limited degree, means that my budget is open for potentially special stuff. This year I only bought Legacy Gears, Sandstorm, Tasmanian Kid, the Autobot 5 pack, Gamer Sideswipe, Origins Wheeljack. I only have the Target 5 pack and Magmatron on pre-order. When finances are tight, just get picky. Nothing is forcing you to have everything, and that's the easiest way to dig yourself into a hole.

    True, but picking and choosing, and by extension, budgeting, becomes a lot easier when you know what is coming out well ahead of time via leaks. I get that the designers want to wow and surprise fans, and it sucks when leaks steal that thunder, but I think more often than not, fans appreciate some heads-up on future releases much earlier in advance than whatever timeframe official reveals are working on.

    This.
    Budgeting is the main point here. Maybe you wanted a Devastator, and you decide to shell out for a CW one. Then the day after, SS86 Devastator is announced for less. Or maybe the SS86 Grimlock.
    Going for a personal example, a friend of mine wanted to gift the Lego Luigi starter pack to his son, then he heard that a refresh with better figures will comes soon.
    After seen the leak, he immediately bought the discounted actual pack, because Boom Boom was missing in the new one.

    A horizon of one or two years is good for consumer, because in these fomo times and economy, helps to budgets luxury items.

    I suppose it's just me because I'm pretty strict in my G1 and BW. I end up buying so little because nothing else appeals to me. I don't have to budget nearly as far if Hasbro isn't willing to shove G1 down our throats. I'd love to give Hasbro my money for G1 product but that doesn't seem to be the case after WfC, which I get.

    2025 looks to be the same. I'm getting the Combiners and that's it. Couldn't give a single shit about the Primes or any of the TF mysticism. That can stay far away from me as far as I care.

    Haven't really been keeping up with this thread, but still no word on what's going on with Core class?
    Last I read was speculation it may be discontinued because there have been no store listings, but anything more solid since then?

    Hard to tell. It’s not like he has anything in his profile advertising it.
