    it’s entirely possible. I’ve always theorized Walmart contributed to the budget of that figure meaning they only have exclusivity toward it or VW said they could only use it once.

    hasbro knows completing teams important and gotten a lot better in the past few years in doing it so I imagine they other two will come in the next 12 months or so

    Especially when there’s a good chance the leak was correct at the time, but are often so early that plans can change for whatever reason - given the pack out here is 2 preds/1 bot/1 con (instead of 1 pred /1 max/1 bot/1 con), I’d be pretty surprised if Nemesis Primal here wasn’t a late change (maybe they decided they’d released too many Optimus Primals in too short a time span… (but I’d just rename Uni 1.0 deco Rodimus Primal personally o_O )

    Definitely sounds possible at this point. I also thought that it was because getting the rights to even make him a VW in the first place was very expensive. But if that were the case, then wouldn't they milk the hell out of the tooling?

    There’s gotta be something there. It seems like total insanity that Hasbro’s mascot character, in his first G1 appearance in his iconic original alt mode since 89 93 (forgot G2), who was featured prominently in the Earthrise marketing images, getting relegated to a store-exclusive subline.

    they released the VW movie BB figure numerous times though, mainline and exclusive…

    just weird. Also weird they didn’t ship him and Soundwave in solid cases :confused:

    Realising this made me go out and pick up that Buzzworthy set as now I can add him to my collection as a representation of Bumper

    This is a very nice set. I can't resist that wonderful vampire-werewolf crossbreed. Fangry will go nicely with the Dracula crossover I read so much about.
    Nemesis Primal is okay, and Blackarachnia looks beautiful with her mutant mask.
    I only wish Bumblebee had been the Volkswagen mold, since I haven't bought that one.

    I think one of the circumstances some thought might have been it’s for bumblebee only and now with this target exclusive it might possible it’s Walmart only too

    The chest logo bee (though I literally just put an Autobot Logo sticker on my VW bee) is a selling point despite the alt mode, but totally buying this for Fangry.

    They can probably get Squeezeplay from The Repugnus mold and maybe Horribull from Weird Wolf…

    I would really love a G2 or G1 goldbug especially with SG revealed they have the head retooling. I still have my G2 bee from when I was 7/8 and I have the MP version so I would very much be on board if they can do it.

    As strange as this set is, I honestly see it selling fairly well for quite a few reasons

    1: While Bumblebee is not a VW here, it does people a 2nd chance at WFC Earthmode Bumblebee without paying an arm and leg.
    2: Fangry will be wanted by quite a few people and more so the people trying to set a CHUG Masterforce shelf.
    3: I'm sure they're lots of fans of the toy colors of Blackarachina.

    Nemesis Primal looks like Ultimate Spidermonkey.

    Also Blackarachnia is in Turantulas' colours? Or is it her OG toy colours?
    And this set seems to be the only way to get a new PROPER Fangry toy...
    I doubt we\'ll ever get a Squeezeplay or Horri-Bull...

    First of all, nice image link.
    Second of all, it’s her OG toy colors, I believe.
    Third, I doubt it? Some retooling can make a Squeezeplay, and Horri-Bull’s beast proportions go well with the Skullcruncher mold.

    Looks like a fun set. Really digging Fangry and Blackarachnia's new colors look fun. Primal's colors are okay, the large purple chest is fun, but Bumblebee is pretty uninteresting after getting the Netflix version. Fangry and BA would be my primary reasons to get it. I'll try to put in a pre-order or pick up at the store if I get the opportunity but I won't be disappointed if I miss out.

    repugnus retooled would make a great squeezeplay

    I want Primal and Fangry, so if anyone else wants the other half, let me know and send me a PM and we can work something out.

    squeezplay can be done especially if they were to use the Repugnus retooling Horribull could go either way with Skullcruncher or weirdwolf but I’d wager money on weirdwolf if they were to keep the chest specs maybe but both do work for sure

    Like, the only reason we're even interacting right now is because you responded to me responding to the guy saying "fucking liar"

    if you don't endorse the sentiment, then don't get up in my fries to begin with

    Yeah I guess, but VW did play ball, and we have an arguably better and more accurate Bumblebee from that.

    I have no need for this Bumblebee in this set.

    I have it too but I really do like this one as well. Woulda liked some black stripes across the hood and too though. I can make room for both.
