    They were wise to release Soundbarrier first, Slitherfang and Doublecrosser are far superior, SB has that hump so hes not completely flat, you cant roll over him. I look forward to more of these guys

    That's because Hasbro still makes their lines and designs their waves/case assortments for sale through physical retailers. There has been some change over the past few years with Amazon and the advent of Hasbro Pulse and more preorders, but for now brick and mortar is still really the bread and butter. It's a new era for more online retail, but it is still all relatively very new and those fixes are going to take time. And with stores like Wal-Mart and Target not going away any time soon you are still in for a very long transitional period, and stuff like tail-end figures like Rung are still going to suffer for it on occasion.

    Most Best Buy stores have ER in stock. They don't list them individually online, only by class and the fine print says "styles may vary." So you'll need to call to see which characters they have in stock before ordering and have the salesperson hold it for you. They are only doing curbside pick up, can not go inside the stores. I got Prime and Starscream.

    Slitherwang, the most stretching of credibility for transforming \"stuff\". Oddly alluring but with the knowledge it is a sorry cobbletron of ridiculous bobbins.

    So...............How about those EarthRise Transformer figures?
    I'm really looking forward to the next wave. When they eventually come out.

    I agree their he should be a scout for sure.

    Spinister was released in sieges.

    You obviously are hellucinating and also cant reqd, bombshock and growl are MILITARY patrol says it clearly on the back, as for hoist being medical cant see that stated ANYWHERE. I dont have ironworks so i can look at box in person but based on the pics also 0 reference of him being any command.

    Dunno where yall go your titals for these guys from but their non existent so dont worry. And again bombshovk and growl are military patrol not airforce patrol doesnt say anywhere they are airforce patrol. Helps to read

    They are talking about the symbols by their names that denote ranks and units that they belong to. It helps to know what people are talking about before you assume they don't know what they are talking about ;)

    As Tigatron said, its the symbols on the nameplates that this discussion was about.
    Hasbro started adding that in Siege. They explained it in the post Tigatron linked to, and used it heavily on their own website War for Cybertron: Siege - Hidden Messages, Games, Videos, Toys - Transformers (scroll down a bit to see):
    website.PNG
    As you can see each of the symbols has a meaning. You can match that to any Siege or Earthrise character to see what Division, Unit, and Rank that character is.
    Fans have compiled a cheatsheet of all the symbols used so far:
    symbols.png
    And you can compare the three characters in question (Hoist, Growl/Bombshock, Ironworks) to this cheatsheet to see that the original post is correct.
    growl.PNG hoist.PNG ironworks.PNG
    Bombshock & Growl have the wings that denote Air Force.
    Hoist has the medical star.
    Ironworks has the central part with the lines/circles jutting out that denotes Space Command.

    So yeah, it helps to read.... all the information Hasbro has released about this fun new addition to their packaging ;)
