    I just wanted to point this out since I expect many people don't realize it. This will be just the 2nd or 3rd (depending on if you count the Fall of Cybertron data disc) G1 Steeljaw figure. The first being the G1 toy obviously. So 1986 G1 toy, 2013 FOC, 2025 this new one.

    Did anyone watch the megatron Robinson video on the preorder page and notice the touch sensor portion? They swipe his butt and megatron shakes his head no:D  it’s like he’s not giving the user consent haha

    That was the main figure I was hoping we’d see given that we already saw its wavemate(TF One studio series Optimus)

    I cynically think the new BB will be the old netflix one without the official VW alt mode. Some bean counter would have come in and said "hey we can keep paying vw like $1 a toy or renew the contract... or we can just delete these specific features maybe make the back more like the penny racer and sure it'll cost us 100k in steel molds but it'll save us 150k so it's worth it... also make it smaller while you've got the CAD software open. every few % smaller is like 10 cents saved per unit."

    Same. And with more of a rounded helicopter that isn't completely flat on the underside. That's the one thing that bothered me about Siege Springer.

    Well I suppose Siege Springer can now live among the other Siege figures, the Origins figures, and the pre-war capsule on my Cybertronian shelf. If I get the new one.

    I’m all for Bayverse being delayed indefinitely until Hasbro and Takara can get an adequate budget paired with adequate development time allocated to ensure the toys won’t feel like they come up short. Same goes for gamer edition.

    Good mould but has a rather frustrating and sometimes risky transformation.

    Hope the Leader release fixes that.

    What do you all think is the possibility of seeing them do a Prowl and XBrawn to go with Sideburn?

    I wouldn't say I'm a Springer fan just because I have two of his figures. I'm not particularly into Grimlock, yet I have all versions of his SS86 mold. I just have a lot of shelves I want to complete.

    But I do like Springer. He's I suppose in my top 3 characters of the '86 movie. If you don't count the blink-and-you'll-miss-them cameos of Shockwave & Snarl.

    I like the mould, but my copy's got flaws namely with the loose legs. The feet also having no support makes him want to lean and fall over, plus I had to thicken up the inner tab for the leg so he also wouldn't fall over from that. Other than that he was pretty solid and very fun figure

    Extremely likely, that mould is gonna see a lot of Reuse/redeco/partials. They wouldn't do 1 without the other 2 brother, people would riot (gripe endlessly online)!

    We still don't know who "Next Gen" Bumblebee is.

    That is the one upside to things, the few Bay figures we have been getting are pretty great! All the 2022 figures were excellent, I really enjoyed Core DOTM Bee, and core Mohawk this year is darn near perfect!

    I\'m not sure how they\'re going to plus voyager springer for the price point, since he\'s already proven to be fine at that level.  Not sure how much a tweak and a clean deco will do it for me.
