    I don’t hate G1, hell I think it’s pretty decent. I’m a Prime/Animated/Bayverse fan at heart but I see the appeal. But hell man, this is like doing a kingdom reveal and just revealing the G1 dudes.
    Nah, we needed something other than G1 again.


    And to those who are saying, “maybe jolt and grindor weren’t ready yet” then don’t do a FFF at all. Wait until everything’s ready, and then do it. I (and many other Bayverse fans) would be fine waiting longer if it meant they wouldn’t blue ball me with SS again. I fully sympathize with the design team guy (who I know was kind of quiet, but he seemed like a genuine fan and I would love to see a stream with him and the hide Optimus in his beard guy, they’re both great) but I could care less about the marketing guy. This is his job. I get that some things will leak, but I guarantee that it wouldn’t be as big of a deal if they just did better at their jobs.

    Maybe Hasbro can be convinced to release the initial concept art for the figures as true first reveals? Of course, then we need to be understanding just how different a final figure it even which figures released will be.

    Um, you do realize they've been doing that all year, right? I mean, if this was some big anniversary event for TFTM, this was pretty pathetic, including the reveals. I mean, SS86 started months ago, at the beginning of the year, with twice as many figures (plus several in Kingdom).

    I mean, if you enjoy it more maybe you should. Life's too short to continue with a hobby that doesn't make you happy.

    It felt like they took a pot shot at the people who complains about scale accuracy when that guy compared Slag and Grimlock together.

    If SS didn’t sell well then why did we make it from 2018 to now

    Yep. Y’all remember the old days where the card backs or toy inserts would show you nearly everything that was coming out that year? I loved looking at them and making a checklist for everyone, hoping that I’d find them in the stores. Now they treat each wave like integral state secrets where you should be honored when they show them off. It’s a weird marketing idea that I think was originally intended to build excitement and hype for the lines but seem to have worn out its welcome.

    I'm not asking them to beat the leakers, that's impossible. We're asking them to reveal stuff that's already known to be coming, and coming soon. They stretch these live streams so thin so they have something to show in a month from now, but then that month comes and they still never get around to it. Artfire? How easy would it have been to show him for two minutes? Jolt? Maybe they don't have him in hand as stated, just mention the Bayverse fans for goodness sake. How about Tigatron for BW fans? Those aren't a year out, they're probably getting ready to ship from the factories. I wouldn't be surprised if the reviewers get 'em in hand within the next two months. (Less than, probably.)

    Hasbro didn't acknowledge fans today, except in a really pointless jab about exclusives knowing everyone and their brother HATES them. The guy was totally standoffish and wanted to poke people in the eyes because leakers beat him to it and made him have to do work he clearly didn't want to. It's time they stop letting the marketing people in these streams if they're not Lenny. He's the only one who can pull it off with any grace, aside from Rachel. I understand why she couldn't do it, and I hope she and the baby are doing great, congrats to her! This guy? He was just odd and had a bad attitude about the whole thing.

    It was unpleasant, looking back on the stream. He made it just a less than stellar experience.

    My point is that Hasbro waits to reveal stuff well into mass production in these Vietnamese factories so why not reveal the figures before that starts? A CG rendering and a workable prototype of a figure has to be made before it can be mass produced so just show that off first and there you go, no more early leaks while the customers get an idea of what to expect just as early. Everyone is happy.

    Next year the SS86 characters will be redone again for the amazingly important 36th anniversary of the original film.

    So, they're really doubling down on Shattered Glass huh? I guess it make sense as its an excuse to do more and more redeco of the same bloody G1 stuff we're drowning in. That said, that Starscream with a head swap could make a neat Cybertronian R-Blade!

    They’ll all be retools of siege Ultra Magnus and Megatron as well.
