    Yeah, same assumption I'm having too. Same figure, just a different type of packaging gimmick you'd be getting (Kingdom with its cards, Legacy with its QR-enabled bios).

    I mean, it's not like there isn't a precedent for clear plastic joints breaking, especially on smaller ones. I've seen a bunch of posts complaining about those clear yellow battlemasters that came with Netflix Prime falling apart, and half of the feedback thread for SS86 Jazz is about clear plastic backpack snapping clean off out of the package. Worrying about clear plastic making up nearly the entire figure seems valid in that context.

    I expect it will be about four to six weeks before I am seeing him in South Central Oklahoma. That is the normal post-first U.S. sighting lag I have experienced. Knowing my luck, I will probably see Blaster and Perceptor during the same week (or maybe same day if things are really crazy) and Pipes/Slammer might hit in the same general time frame. But looking forward to all of them.

    Yep Energon clear plastic gimmick is ugly and out of place.

    True. I mean in the TT Gen Selects comic, they had the gall to even joke about Sounbarrier breaking, Mine broke early on so getting a replacement was easy. needless to say I am very careful with both my replacement Sounbarrier and Shieldron (I haven't had issues with Enerax, but I rarely Transform him).

    I am thankful that Blaster is not in my scope of collecting, but it does look cool. I think fans by now, just know to be very careful with anything made of clear plastic. If a toy doesn't want to bend a certain way DONT DO IT. Still, Eject's normal movement needed for transformation should hopefully not be hindered.

    I'm betting Texas is the same way, since it is just below Okla

    Important to note though that Prime’s shield battle master suffers from a designs flaw that leaves it prone to breaking regardless of the clear plastic. And most Minicons for PCC have held up over the past decade so I don’t think we have much to worry about with the cassette.

    It will also depend on how fast they get stocked. At Christmas the Trailer can sit in the lot for weeks till new freight is needed. At least he will be on clearance after Christmas

    Bet Money Ram horn and steeljaw will get a 2 pack... Rewind will be in a repack.

    We can hope there are 2 of the 2 packs no clear plastic

    I’ll be super disappointed if we never get Ramhorn or Steeljaw. The timer starts now Hasbro!

    Considering how Amazon has been getting a lot of packaged gift sets that sometimes include new molds or at least heavy remolds, I’m wondering if next fall there’s a Twincast plus Ramhorn & Steeljaw set. It would line up perfectly with previous Amazon sets…

    Hasbro has been too good to us lately not to give us blasters cassettes the question is is how much will we be willing to pay for them and what will they be included with that we are forced to buy
