    I'm just glad it's mild control instead of mind control, but I wonder what that is? Do the helmets just make you really passive-aggressive when dealing with others?

    I\'m really disappointed it isn\'t an Earthrise figure but it looks good and I look forward to the implications for Cyberverse. I also like the look of what I presume to be mind control helmets.

    You guys are totally right, the price does line up which would explain a lot...

    Part of me really still wants an Earthrise Quint, the original rumor post were links on "the official Hasbro China’s Taobao store", not Target. Im still crossing my fingers, that gives me enough hope to hold out until wave 2 (maybe 3) of Earthrise to see what we'll be getting. Heres to hoping, but if there isnt one down the road, this threepack would explain why.

    Any difference with prowl and shockwave other than the lack of their armor

    Are you still in the Richmond area? Brickseek shows none available so it may have shown up super early as a mistake (I just checked with my zip)

    That looks pretty cool! Not sure if I need it, but if it saw a single release, I may spring on it.

    I just love how the "Pharaoh" style head looks like something out of Scooby-Doo.

    Alpha QUINTESSON, Alpha QUINTESSON!

    Hasbro was quite insistent on that during the panel at BotCon because of the other way it sounds...

    and it does suck that the other two figures are reissues...would have been nice to have some deco differences for 'possessed' mode, but that Quintesson figure may be a must-get anyways...

    Nice surprise but it sucks for me since I already have Cyberverse Prowl and Cyberverse Shockwave.

    What a shame it didn't come with the Prowl mold repainted as Bluestreak or Smokescreen and the Ratchet mold (instead of Shockwave) and repainted as Ironhide.
