Glad it wasn't sold out on Amazon. Hopefully they make enough unlike Ratchet's pack.
Don't worry Terrorsaur you will come up soon and we will find you.
It is odd, isn't it? They announce Puffer the fused-bot before him, the, er fusee.
Not sure I'll get this. I have Huffer and I had my mind on Pipes who, despite being based on the same mould is different enough to be appealing to me. Cab is the other way round in robot mode, different head.. yeah I'd bite.
Now there are these two who come in a set and look like repaints of the other two... but what repaints they are.
The backstory for Puffer is a bit lame, but that's fine, it's a decent little nod to how this color scheme came about in the first place. I just can't help but think: "but Bumper isn't a literal fusion of Bumblebee and Cliffjumper."
I'm going with my backstory where he's a junior medical technician stationed on the same ship as Spin-out (going with the backstory that he was basically a chef), but when every officer above Spin-out was killed leaving him in charge, Puffer had to step up as the chief medical officer despite his limited training. That is until the crew was rescued.
Excited to see the other sets. Curious on what exactly Jackpot will look like, and with hell come with anything special. Cautiously optimistic about Terrorsaur. And very excited to put the orange Tigatron in Grimlock's maximal team.
Hey, me too! Though knowing how long it takes pulse to get me my orders (I POd from them), it'll probably arrive a week after my B-day lol!
How the hell did Pulse sell out so quick? I pay for premium to avoid that shit.
Unless the date changes
They look cool but imma wait for Terrorsaur
The backstory they gave is really cool imo, makes me more interested in picking up the figure. Any exclusive I usually preorder then decide later if I’m gonna stick with it or sell later. The way these end up going on secondary market these feel like safe bets whether you keep or sell
ME: Wow is Hasbro actually going to create a new characte--
HASBRO: (smacking toy out of my hands) NO
Way to be a buzzkill
Thing is Bumper has a unique alt-mode and head, while Puffer is literally a Pipes in Huffer-ish colours, so makes more sense.
More people have started to as well.
Since Puffer is the Fusion Dance result of Huffer with Pipes colors, can we also get Hipes...aka Orange Pipes?
Definitely makes me worried about Pulsecon.
Cybertron wheeljack meme here we come!!!
remember when the golden disc was just the vinyl record NASA sent into space with a message on it and not another boring all-powerful reality warping macguffin? like it was still a macguffin but it was an interesting one and not just ANOTHER allspark?
anyway, toys look cool but i knew that already. wonder what the "fan nod" they're referring to is.
The premium members thing only lasts a little while, then it goes to everyone
Terrorsaur and orange Tigatron are going to sell out in minutes aren't they? I wish they were two packs, to be honest. Just to see what they would pair with them. This set looks cool but I'm pretty topped out on Autobots given what's coming with Legacy. I suppose that I could use Reprolabels on Puffer given how blank a slate he is but Road Ranger would still be an Autobot.
I think these may be "1 per month" releases... of the 4 sets all that's been leaked is this one (1 set of 2 characters). Whoever gets leaked next is most likely the 2nd release, unless hasbro snipes the leakers
Wow, Puffer is Tuvix! I love alternate reality stories like this. My shelf will have them trapped in the G1 universe with no way home and join the Autobots on my shelves.
Edit: I see someone else already mentioned Tuvix also I hope it’s a TM Tigatron instead of the orange one when it comes to that.
