    I\'m just going to say it, that is the dumbest decision to pack it head on, unposed in robot mode. It really shows what a terrible figure this is without posing.

    I think it's so weird a few random cases of Wingfinger that absolutely weren't meant to be in a retail store, as the single cases are meant for websites, but we haven't seen the assortment case or any other deluxes anywhere, even the webstores that get things super early usually.

    If it looks cool posed that would imply it's a cool figure, though.

    That looks pretty laughably bad. Might be the most unappealing figure I’ve ever seen in package.

    So many questions:
    • What accessories that will come in the Mark Combiner gift set?
    • Will Mark get a Generations Selects recolor?
    • Will the Netflix Spoiler Pack of Mark come with Playdough?

    It will be a 10 lb brick of Playdough that you have to dig thru to find each individual bone piece.

    I can't think of any way to respond to a comment about Mark's Bone Piece, and not have it come out sounding dirty.

    Thanks for clarifying! I stand corrected, but I still think it’s a stupid name for a transformer.

    I think there are lots of stupid names for Transformers.

    At least in five years I’ll remember this one. Can’t say Ractonite or Paleotrex will roll off the tongue by then.

    They used to make a Play-Doh beard trimmer playset. Make your own Mark beard and hide accessories in it. Who wouldn't pay for that??

    EDIT: Hah! They still do! Amazon.com: Play-Doh E2930 Buzz 'n Cut Fuzzy Pumper Barber Shop Toy with Electric Buzzer and 5 Non-Toxic Colors, 2-Ounce Cans: Toys & Games (Warning: Trypophobia trigger... Kind of creepy.)

    I have to ask, before my collector OCD flares and I start stalking down every Walmart in a 50 mile radius....was he actually confirmed to be releasing, or was this just a bizarre one-off incident?

    It’s the only sighting so far, and I’m not sure there’s enough evidence presented to make it 100% believable.

    It's likely a bizarre one off. W3 hasn't been sighted otherwise, but places like GameStop claim to be shipping this week.

    I'd assume it's a accident.
    The solid case was probably heading to Walmart.com and took a wrong turn.
    Solid cases seldom make to stores.

    W3 hasn't been sighted? What about the sightings of Galvatron, Rhinox, Core Class Soundwave in various parts of the world?

    Of course none of those are deluxes, the only relevant kind of sighting for T-Hybrid to be discussing in this thread.

    He said "W3" not just deluxes or wingfinger specifically.

    I can. Mark was eating KFC and some of his chicken bones fell into a tub of Play-Doh that he happened to have lying around. He looked over at what he’d dropped and before he threw them out, he got an idea...

    ...but unfortunately, that idea was already taken.
