    "The first collaboration with a celebrity". This isn't even the first G1 Soundwave mold recolor which was a collaboration with a celebrity attached lol!

    Granted they go on to specify the collaborative label specifically later on. Still hilarious.

    I\'m going to fully admit,  I am 45 (solidly Gen X) and I have no idea what this is. I also asked both my kids (15 and 16), and they have no clue either. So there you go. Still, if someone is going to shame me, rememebr, before you do, I held back from commenting a few days ago when the Universal Draculus crossover was revealed, and so many younger fans had no clue what that was either. I think this was made in direct response to that actually ;) . In my book we are even.

    Do yourself a favor and avoid their shifty app, even shittier customer service and the chance of actually getting this figure as it\'s depicted it slim and none.

    Because I'm not at all cultured when it comes to music.. At first I was like, who the hell is J.Balvin...? So I had to Google him. I'm glad he's a fan, but the design choice for this G.1 Soundwave is... Well, it looks like somebody pained him yellow, dropped him in a tub of dollar store stickers, rolled him around a few times & called it good.. That's my first impression. Anybody who wants it & thinks it'a great? Good for you, you do you~ but this isn't for me personally. The blast effects are a nice touch though.

    No worries. Your phone is just fine. Their app is the shits. You think it’s bad now. Wait till this goes on sale and the app crashes. Just like it did before when they announced they launched the Classified Cobra Commander.

    [​IMG] Sad...

    It's the last part...specifically since 2019 I think they are referring to this specific "X-over" branding that started with Ghostbusters

    seeing that the package itself says NTWRK, I wouldn’t be surprised that it’s exclusive to them.
    I just can’t believe that Hasbro would insist on doing another collab with them after the last fiasco.
    Proof positive that Hasbro doesn’t learn from their mistakes.

    I call bullshit on the NTWRK exclusivity, I'd be getting mine from Pulse or HK.
    I went to the Billboard website and it starting saying the N~ word through my speakers... wtf.

    Of course.

    80s nostalgia is insanely profitable.

    Yup even the two little kids on here want one. I remember reggaeton came out like 20 years ago when I was in high school. It's a lot like reggae without the Abrahamic patriarchal religion.
