    Dunno if this has been covered, but looking at the combined pic, I just realized that the PotP Starscream mold looks like it was designed to have the torso mode evoke Bayverse-Starscream's shape.

    It has been addressed. We discussed in here back when POTP Screamer came out.

    So is she an SDCC exclusive or will she be revealed at SDCC and sold later?

    Ugh because both of them were STILL a pain to secure. I'd really rather not miss out on Orthia because I was in a meeting when the last component went live.

    Fings crossed she's more of a Red Swoop/Ricochet fairly well distributed to global e-tailers Select and not an exclusive like Redwing!

    That looks a lot better than the pictures of the toy in hand. Hopefully, there's a running change to get those pastel colors on the figure.

    That would be nice. Hopefully the initial response to Lancer also means she's not in super high demand compared to Shackwave.

    Cool. I didn't follow it when it came out because it didn't appeal to me, but it's nice to know great minds think alike!

    I hope Lancer does see a decently wide release. I've never been a fan of the super-limited stock "you can't have one because you weren't on your computer at the right time of day on the right day of the week with the right slot in line and the favor of the god of random chance" marketing thing. Just make enough pieces for everyone who wants one to get one.The social media buzz value of people complaining that they didn't get one isn't nearly as much of a positive as they seem to think. And in the end the only people who really profit are the scalpers who manage to get a few and jack up the price on eBay or the like. The surest way to defeat the scalping market is to ensure there's sufficient stock for everyone to get one through legitimate channels.

    I already missed out on Ectotron because of distribution confusion and nonsense and felt jerked around by the limited number of Power of the Primes quasi-limited-release figures even though I got what I wanted in the end. I want to snag several of the special sets from Siege (the Skywarp one, Red Wing, Lancer. I'm iffy on Smokescreen and the G2 Sideswipe pack). It really shouldn't be made this difficult.

    Not going to lie, I saw the title for this thread and briefly thought we might finally be getting a Signal Lancer. Kinda bummed it's just a literally who from the G1 cartoon instead.

    Did someone say...

    Seriously though, a Signal Lancer Battlemaster that Lancer or Orthia could wield in battle would be sweet! They could remold Smashdown.

    "Orthia" is it? Was "Eyesore" trademarked?
