    I know - to me, would just be nice if they lit up. . .

    Hasbro didn’t even officially announce or show the new Sideswipe until it’d been in shops for a month.

    Hasbro shot themselves in the foot here. They had many opportunities to reveal this guy and the rest of his wave but they just didn’t.

    wheeljack looks like the g1 design but actually interesting, brilliant.

    It'd also be nice if he had individually articulated fingers, but you can only expect so much from a mainline deluxe.

    What is going on with Hasbro's marketing right now? I pay for Pulse Premium and got no notification that Kingdom Red Alert or Kingdom Wave 4 was stocked. They used their personal conference to only reveal 1/2 of one of their 2 core TF product lineups, straight up called themselves out on not communicating with their customers, and did two follow up streams where they only announced 2 more figures while also telling them they wouldn't be offering pre-orders.

    WHO IS HASBRO'S MARKETING LEAD BECAUSE I'M SURE A BLIND, DEAF SQUIRREL WOULD DO A BETTER JOB OF TELLING US ABOUT THEIR PRODUCTS THEY WANT US TO BUY!

    I wonder if this will be Wheeljack alt mode if he appears in the Cybertron movie.

    (he represented a portion of this fandom)

    I wonder if PVP has the others and If so I could maybe see him reviewing them 1 a day.

    I can't believe that I'm excited to see the other bots now.

    Here's hoping they're just as cool as this guy is!

    Wow, that alt-mode is awesome! It's really got that sleek racer look down pat, one of the BEST Cybertronian modes ever imo. And they also did a great job on the paint/plastic color matching on the front end!

    I don\'t even care for the Studio Series Cybertronian modes, but this one looks good. I\'m cautiously optimistic for the Arcee now... Might even pick this guy up, though I didn\'t like the in-hand quality of Cliffjumper when I had him. The movie-verse Studio Series have always felt a little flimsy to me.

    I got to wonder how some of them will look like
    Shockwave will probably be an upsidedown submarine as he usually is - like Bing toys version, Ironhide/Ratchet will be vans, as usual, Brawn, Soundwave, and Arcee are the ones I'm the most curious about.
    Arcee depending on how good she looks I will pass on since well I kind of feel less compelled to get a version of this universe Arcee when she's gonna have an Earth mode & a new look/model in ROTB. SW just cause I wonder if they'll make him a cassette player or a van-type vehicle and Brawn being a hummer-type vehicle.

    What's gonna help them all is the fact they don't have to compromise the bot mode for the robot mode which is part of the reason WJ looks as good as he does.

    Also wonder if elements of WJ, Cliff, and Bee's alt mode aesthetics will carry over to the others - wheels, backfin things sticking off, etc.

    If Wheeljack looks this good it makes you wonder about the rest of the BBM movie figures. Because I'd they're half as good as Wheeljack than my priorities have just been turned 180 degrees.

    It's not that they couldn't, it's that it's way too early to reveal them. Leaks say he and the others are gonna come around summer-time so... Yea. Plus, we've had early leaks before. Remember Tonton with Kingdom?
