    The Snapdragon map piece has the same exact routes as one of the Siege pieces but has Biosphera on it. The routes are the exact same but the background is different.

    But Siege didn’t have map pieces.

    I believe he means it matches one of the wave 1 pieces. The way the routes are laid out actually does match the Starscream piece.

    Has anybody mentioned that Doubledealer has Caminus on his map and so does Astrotrain. And they appear to be different maps?

    I feel like someone has totally screwed up the files for this star map.

    -ZacWilliam, the fan vote from last year said the winning Decepticon had snuck aboard the Ark. If I was hasbro I'd make up a story that he screwed with their map getting them stuck in space.

    The skywarp/thundercracker piece should connect with or be close to the scorponok piece considering Unicron is on the piece before cutting.

    Opened the Scorponok I got from BBTS. Anyone want the map and plastic decoder? I have no use for them. I will just let someone have it just pay shipping. I don’t want to pitch it unless someone wants it.

    Ugh, I hope it's not going to turn out to be broken and impossible to complete after all this.

    in the other map thread people reckon that some later wave figures have map pieces that replace earlier ones (with extra paths) since there's the astrotrain/doubledealer dupe and someone worked out that wave 4'd be really small if there's not dupes

    Maybe the Pandemic delays have led to some shifts and or changes in the line requiring such corrections/replacements/alterations to the map, I could also see that could lead to a kind of rush where some mistakes might happen planet-labelling-wise.

    Isn’t there a rumour about the entirety of ER wave 4 being broken up into exclusives? If that’s the case, then Netflix Bumblebee, who’s clearly designed as an ER figure, might have his map piece in limbo at the moment.

    That “rumor” is relatively baseless speculation. The Netflix line was leaked months ago and the only thing feeding that rumor is that some of the figures have a clean deco

    I wouldn't say that recognising both Bumblebee and Elita-1 being Partial remoulds/retools of prior wave Earthrise figures of a sort that quite commonly appear in latter mainline waves is "relatively baseless", I mean that's quite a reasonable base right there.

    They leaked as part of the Netflix line months ago and nothing in the fan Friday indicated any sort of alternative release was ever planned or is planned now. I stick by saying it’s relatively baseless

    That’s equally true of planned exclusives, so I wouldn’t consider that significant evidence for either argument.

    And you're well within your rights to do so but it remains that they are the first Netflix figures to have any additional remoulding at all, every prior figure in the sub-line has only been a straight repaint, unless I've forgotten someone/thing?

    Battlefield Rung has new blast effects and Hotlink’s battlemasters only had part of the Blowpipe effect if that counts

    Yeah, Rung does squeak "something new" though it's likely most Battlemasters have alt blast effects (at least the Blowpipe buck has had an alt with the Caliburst, well, burst) but not to the level of a new head and body parts like Elita And 'Bee in particular, who has a fairly major re-shelling as it were for his alt mode. Hotlink's guys actually had less effects overall from a prior design so, no, they really don't count as new IMHO.
