    Personally, I want to see Arcee on the bike. Springer could probably look cool too.

    Ok, gotcha. That makes me feel a whole lot better about him. Blitzwing happens to be a favorite of mine so I just want to see him done justice.

    Really? You miss Rachel? I don't think her fakeness is any better. At least the designers come across as real fans, these marketing people suck in the videos! I don't like any of them.

    Soon the Grimlock and Slag team will be together to reenact the scene with "Me Slag say you full of beryllium baloney!"

    Good. Now we can finally start the debate over why Hasbro is naming a toy Pufter.

    RotF Bee is out right now, it's just mashed into the Buzzworthy line so it's only at Target.

    There’s a ROTF Bumblebee coming in the mainline Studio Series packaging without the Buzzworthy Bumblebee trade dress.

    Oh. Still, like the other SS figures in the Buzzworthy line wouldn't it be exactly the same? Not much to reveal there.

    Do you need a reveal for something that's already in stores? I picked up mine this afternoon. Here he is (left) with the '07 version (right). There's some noticeable differences in the car... darker yellow, no color on the Chevy badge, hood scoop, different stripes, smaller headlights, different fog lights, more black on the front end, slight differences to the rear spoiler and front quarter panels, different rims, etc. I assume he's got all those remolded parts because Hasbro has the license from Chevy.

    But the engineering and transformation is exactly the same.

    And that means the robot modes are almost exactly the same, too. Some of the car's differences show on Bee's chest, the gray plastic is lighter, the pelvis is painted silver instead of bare black plastic, and he's missing his yellow toes. Comes with the exact same blaster, but also a slug of Sam in a running pose that reminds me of the one that came with MPM Jazz, but he's not holding a cube and he's got the jacket he had in RotF. Really, the biggest disappointment for me is that he's got all those remolded car parts but the same battle mask head as the '07 Bee. I really want a modern Camaro Bee with the unmasked face. Oh well, maybe Hasbro will remold him again for the DotM version.

    HasTak should just retool the Earthrise vanette mold into Sir Soundwave already. I know retooling the windshield/chest can't be done without basically making a new figure, but give him a new head, his WfC voyager weapons (he's a big deluxe anyway), the little cassette player from the Weaponizer Pack, and a retooled legs SG Ravage.

    Listening to the WTF at TFW podcast, I heard that there was some sort of improv rap song performed at the end of the stream, but I can't find any YouTube recordings of it. Does anyone know where I could see it?

    Seeing this just makes me again wonder how Rodimus' alt-mode ever got tagged as a space winnebego. All the development art along with his first transformation in-movie, where there's that slight adjust like a trailer attaching itself to the main cab, just screams "badass truck."

    Flameboyant, but badass.

    I was thinking that but Shattered Glass Ratchet is also white and three white toys from the same mold wouldn’t be a good deal.

    Based on Goldbug’s mold choice, a SG Soundwave would likely be the voyager Soundwave mold. Unfortunately, they’d probably use the Siege one instead of the Earthrise Netflix one.

    I would be much more excited for Slag if he featured a black head with red visor. I can't stand the red head.

    Yes. I realize that would not be "movie accurate" but, honestly I don't care. The red head just looks bad.

    That makes a lot more sense than a Winnie. All Autobot Matrix bearers are trucks, right? It seems to be a theme.
