    Does anyone know what time the preorder will be available? It says May 24 but idk if that means midnight today or noon of May 24. If anyone knows based on prior releases of TF related things just lemme know.

    I only just now got around to watching the actual stream itself. They sounded so dejected that Wreck Gar got leaked before they could do the official reveal. :lol  Now I feel kind of bad for enjoying seeing the leaked pics but... mostly I'm just glad we're getting a solid '86 Wreck Gar.

    86 Kup, Commander Rodimus, and 86 Wreck Gar are figures I'm very much looking forward to owning this year. The only thing that could make me happier would be a more toon accurate Astrotrain happening, too. But that feels like something we won't see until the next line at the earliest given the Siege mold's apparent popularity.

    Press control + shift + i to open inspect element on the page of the item you want to see
    Press control f inside of inspect element
    Type "inventory"
    Hit enter 2 or 3 times
    There should be 2 numbers. A positive number and a negative number. The positive number is the amount they put up and the negative is the amount they sold.

    Yeah, and then they later joked about fans "liking" exclusives, which drained all of the little sympathy I gave them.

    I would probably buy a retool of Gnaw as B.O.T.

    *tick, tick, tick* (looks around for Swindle)

    Oh you had sympathy for them? I didn't. While I think leaks kind of suck the excitement out of the very few reveal events that us Transformers fans get, it's also no surprise they happen, either. We're literally drip fed information, and get reveals every few months or so. Meanwhile (admittedly I don't pay that much attention to the other Hasbro owned toy brands), all of these other toy lines like Star Wars and Marvel seem to get a new reveal every few weeks or every month.

    I'd argue this is why so many Bayfomer fans, myself included, were disappointed about Jolt and Grindor not being revealed last Friday. We know they're pretty much done, yet we're going to have to wait lord knows how long until the next reveal to see them.

    Gotta say, I'm pretty happy with all of these reveals.

    Cannot wait to get them.

    Who else has been rumoured for the '86 line?

    Rest of the Dinobots
    Insecticons
    Blitzwing
    ?

    I know Brawn and Perceptor have been bounced around as well as Kranix. I think Brawn will be Legacy though. And I just hope Blitzwing has three modes and they don't cut out a mode like SS usually does with triple changers.

    Blitzwing is happening in legacy. Even if it was Studio Series, the only reason SS cuts out altmodes is because of the complexity of the designs, G1 doesn't have that same issue.

    The fact that alternative meanings for the term exist is entirely irrelevant.

    Why is Hasbro dicking around with partial release on stupid vinyl is BEYOND comprehension.

    It BAFFLES the mind.

    And I want the G.I. Joe score as well as it'll be its 35th next year.

    Damn it Hasbro, GET GOING!

    Slag/Slug talk stops here. The figure is named Slug so sayeth Hasbro. Call him what you want, but the debate about the name ends.

    That'd certainly be one way for Hasbro to stop me from buying Blaster, regardless of whether I like the figure or not.

    I would rather see the cassettes included with Blaster, or in a multipack. But together with blaster would be my favorite choice because it is easier for me to get them.

    Another option would be multi-packs with Autobot Cassette vs. Decepticon Cassette type thing with the movie cassettes. They could have an Autobot City background as a nod to their appearance in the movie.

    I would rather have an Exo-suit Spike, or plain clothes Spike and Daniel with the dinobots since they already started doing that. Or maybe that sparring robot that yells "Time Out!" when sparring with Hot Rod.
