    With how shitty some people acted towards JT not to long ago(and apparently receiving death treats too) I wouldn't be surprised if he decided to retire early. I know during the Star Raiders capsule tease Mr. Chaos and one other member , who i unfortunately cant remember the name of helped tease it so maybe those two will be our go to listing leakers from now on.

    Is that about how people were angry for the Fanstream March fiasco?
    I get people would prefer to see the designers be the ones to reveal the new products, but it was completely out of Jts hands that stuff got leaked beforehand

    I think I know who our new leaker to succeed Jt will be. Can't remember his name, but he's on the board, and he spot on predicted the appearances of Cybertron Vector Prime, Cybertron Hot Shot, Cybertron Starscream, Core Class Cheetor, '86 Bumblebee. No one believed him at first until the figures were revealed.

    For example he said Vector Prime would be a Jhiaxus retool with new parts minus the waist and legs (without the bat fins). And he was absolutely correct. And also for '86 Bumblebee he said the alternate mode wasn't so "beetle-like" and he was right! If anyone can help me remember his name, let me know, he had a pic of Thomas the train in his pfp.

    You're thinking of Tekmen and if I remember correctly he was just relaying information that he said his friend got to see.

    I can’t remember who said this on one of the livestreams Sandstorm was in, but I think they said there would be a toon head Sandstorm down the line. So it’s possibility we might get a toon deco of Sandstorm with the toon head.

    I wonder if their is a toon headed prototype out there of Sandstorm or if they messed up at the factory like the gritting teeth Beast Megatron that was found before we even saw T-Wrecks

    But we already have Earthrise Prime. I recently learned that they're bloating it up to Commander Class (probably with a trailer) but I'm not sure why they wouldn't just sell the Voyager with a new head. What's actually going to be different beyond that?

    The trailer is the main reason why.

    With this being Evan’s main want in 86 he’s going to go all out with it. Lot he can do with that budget.

    I was actually kind of interested in this one, because I skipped the Siege and Earthrise toys (they should have used each other's heads, tbh). But I definitely won't pay $50 extra for a box.

    I just swapped the twos heads myself and they look fine.

    If the Prime on its own is good I probably will if not I’ll pass as I don’t care about Optimus’s trailer.

    86 Optimus better be a new mold, because if that's true then that's without a doubt the biggest middle finger to the fans they could do for 40th. I'm hoping that's not true and he is indeed a new mold, but if so then wow.

    I ran into the Siege version today at a secondhand store. Didn't have a price tag but it wasn't going to be a price that was worth buying just for the head. Especially since all the Earthrise figures are saddled with their own trailers jacking up the price.

    I would be shocked if it wasn’t. He absolutely will be a new mold again this is basically one of Evans passion projects, he’s not going to do a new G1 Prime (possibly his only shot at it) and just reuse the ER mold from the previous team.

    inb4 he's a Springer style retool where he technically has a bunch of new parts but barely looks different enough for it to really matter and the box is shoved with a bunch of junk

    They make a new G1 Prime every year. Unless this guy only works at Hasbro for a month he'll get to make as many as he wants.

    It's important that they make an entirely new tooling of a character that already has a cartoon accurate G1 mold readily available, and not one of the Optimus Primes that hasn't had a new mold in over a decade, like any of the comic ones.
