    It's an "EE exclusive" the same way Studio Series Drift, Bumblebee Retro Pop Highway and the Bumblebee/Charlie set are "EE exclusives", as in, everyone from BBTS to TFSource to ToyWiz to friggin' Diamond/Previews is offering it alongside EE.

    It’s listed as exclusive because it’s an online exclusive, that’s it

    That blows the official one away, especially with those chromed wings.

    I had a dream there was a Unite Warriors EX beast series Abominus, Volcanicus, and Predaking that TakaraTomy put out later this year. Premium accurate decos and extra weapons included in all of them. I've never been psychic, but now feels like a great time to start.

    Thanks, but let's just say, it's a flattering picture ;) 

    I have the official on preorder. Don't remember where but I do have it coming from somewhere, lol.

    Agreed. This way is better, but at the same time you can see what looks like signs that Hasbro is still toying with a subscription service now and the before ultimately backing out.

    You've got to imagine every time they start thinking about it, they realize what a pain international distribution would be and back out. I'm not sure, as long as these continue to sell well, why they'd change from this to a club system (yes, they'd get more information about customers, but I imagine the various fan votes and apps give them a decent amount of info)

    That box is disappointing.

    Honestly, I'm not in love with the mold, so it feels excessive. Maybe if it came with a G2 Grimlock and Slag? :D 

    I'll probably buy it... but that's because I'm thinking it will shelfwarm long enough to go on sale down the line.

    ALSO: would Hasbro ever consider offering a toy as a freebie for being a loyal customer? When I've bought doubles of all the dinobots, I would love to get some "frequent flier" mileage from Hasbro! :D  But alas... they want $30 more for this. Pass.

    Cut out all your UPCs/Proofs of Purchase, mail them to Hasbro, and see what happens!

    You know what I want to do more? Send 50 cents to some of those addresses in my 90s comics, for a free brochure on their products! :D 

    There are a lot of good ways to waste your time (and money)! :thumb

    I think it'd be most effective if all of us sent this photo to Hasbro with the title, "Now what?" :D

    As :cool:  as Ricochet and Red Swoop are, I want this line to sing, kriffit.

    CW Hoist from Trailbreaker and combiner-compatible Tracks from ... somebody, I don't care. We're getting Orthia completed, and Inferno could use another couple limbs (not to mention rounding out the '85 Autobot cars).

    After that? Monstructor. Pirahnacon. Rack and Ruin. Freakin' Xaaron.

    Hasbro's shown they're heeding fan calls, at least in some ways. Let's get a few more home runs hit here.

    I hope Apeface and Snapdragon somehow appear in this line instead of the mainline, so that they will be true voyager class.

    Any new molds will probably use the current scaling setup being used with siege and studio series.

    I know. But one can hope they do some magic retooling to a couple of PW molds.
