    Pulse I think but it's a select release so it'll probably go to ohter stores

    Blaster definitely 
    I know once the rush is over 
    there will be plenty,

    maybe the weapon set for the soundwave and megatron gun, if it\'s not too expensive

    If you're going that route (and it's a good one) keep in mind that Cyberverse introduced the Quintessons as dimension hoppers. So they could also be involved.

    And if you'd like to talk about time travelers mucking up the G1 timeline, there was one show that specifically dealt with that, and one of the stars from that show has been getting a lot of face time lately.

    upload_2020-6-26_10-51-40.jpeg

    Unicron is part of WfC, so there's still potential for Megatron to become Galvatron for other reasons. I also think Optimus not dying in this universe means no Rodimus. What you could see instead is a story centered around the consequences of him living, and perhaps a war centered around the Matrix.

    Prime finding his body changes the outcome of the Battle for Autobot City. Megatron is defeated, and that leads to him finding Unicron and becoming Galvatron. But with Prime alive, the Quintessons (who are now dimension hoppers) try to right the course.

    The All Spark responds by summoning Cheetor and maybe that kicks off some kind of dimensional warfare between the two sides. Because now you've got the Quintessons trying to kill Prime and obtain the Matrix while both sides fail to realize Unicron is on his way.

    So now you've got Galvatron (and Cyclonus) in the mainline, but stuff from the movies that doesn't fit or doesn't happen goes to Studio Series. This would include a Rodimus figure.

    Heck, if you think the Beast Wars are next...what if the consequences of this whole thing is Optimus Primal obtaining the Matrix and creating a situation where everybody becomes organic (or at least gains beast modes).

    It would, after all, fulfill the PotP Poll.

    Pretty underwhelming, even without the leaks.

    Centurion’s accessory pack is full of stuff I just don’t care about. Too much Sunbow shit once again. I don’t need a toy of a cage that was used in one scene from one episode. I don’t need a tiny Optimus Prime intended to go with a figure I’m never purchasing. The rest are weapons and accessories that go with figures I don’t have. I didn’t even really want Centurion that much and was waiting to see what he came with before deciding. Now that I know, it’s a complete pass.

    Rotorstorm is a massive disappointment as well. No Hitman glasses, no buy. Was really hoping for that, at least. I guess I’ll wait for a viable third party alternative cause I’m not buying a $20 replacement head.

    Tigertrack is probably the best thing. He’s not anything super complicated and he works well.

    Alternate Universe Optimus...sure exists.

    That Centurion w/ Weapons Pack set is a must for me. Tiger track and Rotorstorm are maybes for me. The RED Series kinda reminds me of the Robot Replicas Series, but for G1 instead of the Bayverse, so I dig it.

    Most of the big reveals must still be promised to SDCC so they could only reveal so much here. That being said nothing revealed here is really worth writing home about, just repaints and a weapons pack that also comes with a repaint. It is almost July and it still feels like Earthrise isn't in full swing yet and I think a big part of that is we are still getting figures that are repaints of Siege figures.

    That is the coolest Ion Cannon in the history of Ion Cannons.

    Still... it took them 36 years to make the first weapon pack ever... and you still have to buy a figure to get it anyway.

    Centurion Drone was already leaked and seen. Tigertrack is hardly worth mentioning, he’s just a yellow Sideswipe. Only decent reveal is the weapon pack.

    Nobody would’ve complained if we got official pics of the numerous unseen listings. It’s what practically everyone has been clamouring for since they leaked.

    That is true, and this is the first time I've been irritated by that fact. I hope it's also the last.

    Wonder what happens to those who already pre-ordered Dead Prime... if that's not the right link, guess we're all getting Nerf darts.

    I like the reveals, only disappointment is they didn't do a new head/face for Rotorstorm.

    Not going to buy the RED figures. They are cool action figures, but, not for me.

    About that alternate universe (dead) Prime… was there a comic written about Zombie Prime running around, or are they dropping hints IDW will do a Marvel Zombies thing and write a story for him?

    With the recent leaks and images popping up,confirming this type of idea more,and more,you may be on to something. It sounds like a Universe 1.0 storyline but in a good way. Funny on how when Siege started,we'd all figured it'd be more or less just yet another G1 retelling with WFC3 be a reimagined 86 movie story but it's looking to be more and more not the case at all.

    This year's SDCC and NYCC are going to be very interesting to see.
