    Well, I am glad to see Megatron is a decent sized leader. He looks pretty massive next to Voyager Primal. It's nice not to have a "voyager plus extra garbage" leader class.

    I'm not too familiar with Pulse, but I use BBTS a lot. They have a Pile of Loot feature so you can hold figures until more come in and save on shipping ($4 flat rate). You can cancel pre-orders at will unlike TFSource, so if you find a figure for cheaper on Amazon, you can simply cancel the pre order. My only real problem with them is that their arrival dates tend to be pretty inaccurate (looking at you, "July Arrival" for Arcee and Blitzwing).

    Wow Hasbro you just love grabbing into my wallet and taking my money. That Primal looks amazing!

    So we're not getting a new Polar Claw after all? Well, shit. Would've been awesome to have him square up against his former sizemate Scorponok.

    Wow, just wow. Because I don't have the words to describe what just happened at PulseCon 2020.

    I wondered if they would do Primal as a Leader since Megatron is one.

    But then considering scale, and the fact a Tyrannosaurus rex is a good deal larger than a gorilla... it makes sense that they didn’t. Actually a real T-Rex would be proportionally even larger but I’m not sure a core class Primal would be acceptable to fans.

    At least the last Polar Claw can be had in pristine loose condition for $30. Thrilling 30 Gears goes for twice that loose and more on the card.

    Hoping both find a release somewhere soon.

    Man Has/Tak has been doing kinda crappy lately, cancelling three characters and replacing them with re-releases of characters (who honestly have much better figures from previous lines), taking up a Selects spot with the rather pointless Dinobot repaints, and taking out a major gimmick and amazing play feature for a majority of the figures in the line not to mention how they've been handling the Netflix show... not cool

    A few extra pixels, and a little better lighting can go a long way. That is a gorgeous head-sculpt!

    I'm still a wee bit concerned about whether or not the base of the thigh locks into the shin to alleviate that gap in robot mode, though. In fact, there's evidence(?) to suggest that the correct transformation is for the thigh to lock into the calf section, making the gap more visible. So many questions, damn it!

    :D

    I saw an interview once were he described his Fred voice as “just me if I got up and drank 12 cups of coffee” :lolol 

    it’s pretty amazing the way he can just snap through voices....

    These all look wonderful even if I don't quite understand the point of the new Core class and why we're getting a baby sized Optimus Prime.

    So Kingdom will have another Leader Optimus?

    Or will it be a re-release of ER Prime?
