    What what WHAT WHAT?!?

    Even the mini-Sharkticons transform? Oh, that's too cool.

    But what is Target doing? Who in their right mind puts out exclusives right AFTER Christmas?!?

    Look, this is some serious tin foil hat theory but...

    What if this is the deluxe Quintessa set that we all thought was a part of the earthrise line from those leaks, like the quintesson we just saw a couple days ago that turned out to be a three pack instead of a single voyager? The Sharkticon scene in the 86 movie with hotrod did take place on planet Quintessa, and if these are being tagged as "environment sets", said environment could be Quintessa! Just an idea, it's a little out there...

    Yeah, but this is a trickling out. There's no way these are going to hit en masse before New Years-ish when most retailers then promptly ignore toys exist until at least June or so.

    It isn't? I guess it might show up at regional stores, but I can't imagine Wal-Mart stocking this. At my local one they've got a row of mostly-empty pegs for Siege deluxes and a row of mostly-empty pegs for Studio Series deluxes. And some seasonal Cyberverse Ultimates. That's it. As far as retail goes, these will essentially be Target exclusives if not in actuality.

    Those tiny Sharkticons are adorable! I would\'ve preffered if the Quintesson came with them instead of Hot Rod but I get that they\'re going for a \"conflict in a box\" type of setup with these. Black Hot Rod looks pretty cool, it makes me think they might borrow some shattered glass elements. Or it\'s just a nod to the bayverse design.

    Sharkticons are always one of my biggest weaknesses. I always buy every version available. But these are fucking PATHETIC! You know something is seriously wrong when Hasbro's official product is on the same level as Happy Meal toys.
