    I can work with either of those; a screen accurate Bluestreak or a screen accurate Prowl with Prowl's head. A Prowl with Bluestreak's head is pure BS.

    Seeing the latest pics, yea, I'm glad I went ahead and pre-ordered the Prowl/Ironhide set. I still think I like the Siege Prowl better overall but Ironhide is really growing on me. The shield did bug me at first but the fact it was hinted at that it could become a sled like G1 toy Ironhide's made me a bit happier with it. I just hope the roof/shield/sled has a bunch of ports on the inside to really arm it up.

    Is it just me, or do Dirge's wings look like they are painted yellow?

    He points out some scratches on them in the video. Looks like both his and Ramjet's are painted.

    The way the Conehead slides out of the jet nose is miraculous. Like pulling a rabbit out of hat. Dirge's face is unforgivable.


    Somebody please get a hold of the prowl Ironhide set.

    I'm really iffy on the coneheads, I don't really care much for them and haven't bought any ER seekers yet, since the only one available for me at a relatively decent price would be ER Screamer. I also much prefer the Siege mold, but at the same time there's a bit of FOMO, since I missed out on Siege Skywarp I kinda want to get them to prevent that happening again.

    I know it's kinda dumb, but goddamn I am torn.

    Literally. Makes him. LESS.

    There's less of him left once you take the roof off, haha.

    Damn you Hasbro! I was all settled in that budget for figures was going to 2 or 3 figures this year. SS Jet-Shatter was the first figure of the year for me. Then I was trying to decide if I was getting SnapDragon AND DoubleDealer or Earthrise Prime and if something else I liked came along in a future release. Well Snap and Dealer, both have which failed my picky tastes after seeing some video reviews, thus the win just went to Optimus.

    So I’m thinking alright; 2 figures for the year. Nope! Then the Cylon battle pack comes out (for those NOT in the know Brunt repaint into Centurion is like a beefy Cylon Centurion from the Sci Fi channels Battle Star Galactica). We get a Weaponizer in a better paint scheme and the rest of what should have came with Earthrise Optimus. For a complete Optimus, that $80. Now we get a BumbleBee that is a cool remold of Cliff Jumper that can fit in the Prime trailer? That means Bee can fit in that trailer, with all of his gear stored. Ka-Ching $100, for a MORE complete set. I’m trying to stay in budget here, I got too much business stuff to buy. Luckily it is a fun business. Oh I can write off the stuff in taxes. You can’t write off Transformers.

    Oh, but wait! There’s more. I used to have a mint in box Soundwave with cassettes and I lost that thing during moving. Damn it! Hasbro, this is where you’re really gunning for me. A perfect SoundWave figure with not 1 but 2 cassettes and rumor has it that they both store inside the chest at once?! REALLY? $140+ for figures this year! Hmmmm maybe I don’t need that Bumble Bee. $120 for the year? Shit, all you reviewers, making Patreon cash, you writing off your figures for taxes? Maybe I need to start reviewing figures on my Youtube Channels.

    There will likely be more stock available once it actually releases, I don't think Pulse has ever allocated their entire stock of an item to preorders

    That honestly took longer than I expected....especially after they screwed up the price for the first hour or so after putting it up for pre-order. :lol

    The conehead transformation in that video was what I expected. All's good.
