    Technically Puffer is a new character in the same sense as Gogeta or Tuvix.

    The nod is the deep-cut reference to Puffer and Road Ranger.

    Think of it ones of these ways: the armada comics and IDW have told us there is a multiverse so we have any infinite number of possibilities.....or there's the cloning project got way outta hand.

    That's different from this, this is just Pulse having a small selection of another retailer's exclusives as a perk for Premium customers who can't get this stuff from Target, Amazon or Walmart (because they all suck to varying degrees on delivering product to customers), while Pulsecon is all Hasbro Pulse's exclusives so they get to sell the full allotments.

    Because I've been so entranced by the What If series, I read the backstory for this set in Jeffrey Wright's voice :lol

    Or Firestorm!!!!! Firestorm is MUCH cooler than stupid-old-Tuvix, who only featured in one of the most maligned episodes of one of the most maligned versions of Star Trek ever.

    oh yeah, of course that's a big difference. It's just what keeps going through my head for some weird reason.

    Like I said, it's a neat enough little homage to Puffer's history, I just feel it's a bit lacking for me personally.

    Had to go to Amazon to get it, looks like Pulse sold their entire allotment to Premium members.

    I'm looking forward to this set, and the other two-packs, but...

    ...we're never gonna get a Glyph and Tap-Out, are we.

    wheeljack silhouette.jpg

    So that Wheeljack silhouette is neither of the Earthrise toy nor the Masterpiece. It's not a placeholder image. It appears to be a retooled ER Wheeljack. (same arms, head, thighs) Judging by the shape of the toes, it might be Wheeljack's MTMTE part 1 Cybertronian form. An Origin Wheeljack.

    Which means, since the shape of the other three box sets suggest two Deluxes and a Voyager, and someone has allegedly seen Terrorsaur, that the leaked listing Deluxe we haven't seen, Jackpot, has been replaced by this Origin Wheeljack.

    But if somebody's seen a Golden Disk Jackpot on the DaRk WeB and wants to correct this speculation, by all means let us know.

    I hope not, it'd be a shame to lose his muscle car alt mode.

    If only they could've reshelled ER Barricade's car mode to be based on a vintage Mustang (or just a generic boxy 70s muscle car), it would've not only made for a better Barricade but also been a perfect base for a proper Cybertron Downshift.

    That Wheeljack silouette can likely be 1 of 3 characters, Netflix Exhuast, Energon Downshift, or IDW Wheeljack.

    For those wondering who is Puffer, he is based on a Mexican release of G1 Pipes who was a repaint of Huffer, instead of a direct release of the 1986 Minibot.
    For those wondering who is Road Ranger, he was one of six Transformers characters who was originally a character from the GoBots franchise, along with Bugbite. To get the other GoBots turned Transformers characters, Kingdom Warpath will have to be repainted and we will have to get new deluxe figures of Gears, Cosmos, and Powerglide. 

    I hope we get Terrorsaur in chapter 2.

    My question is whether or not Optimus Prime will demand Puffer is torn apart and turned back into the original two bots.

    And this is the first partner exclusive that, to my knowledge has been sold out before the premium window closed.

    You wouldn't have to retool Earthrise Wheeljack to make Netflix Exhaust or Energon Downshift, and the silhouette isn't retooled in a way that suggests IDW Wheeljack.
