    Lol, wut? Earthspark needs to be on shelves another 2 years before we can says it does worse than Legacy wave 1 deluxes.
    Comments like this are all kinds of ignorant, since we suddenly forget all the cases of other shelfwarming elsewhere for different lines.
    There's a bunch of movie toys that people claim are shelfwarming, as well as G1 characters.
    We've heard the same complaints for the Cyberverse line too, even though it sold so well that they rereleased one step Wheeljack half a dozen times.
    Same old same old BS anecdotal takes.

    Wow, if they're canceling a figure that actually resembles the character, or at least his artwork, then we're never getting an ES Arcee. She finally has a cohesive car mode and it's never going to come in toy form. :(

    Takara likes to have fun with its Kid Lines. Their TAV line (for RID 2015) had more unique figures and decos than their countepart to the generations line at the time. I think they can be more inventive with lines like this.

    If there is going to be a Cosmos toy, the chances of it being underpainted are at 100%. And that is not even factoring in that it might just be a trashy gimick figure and not a out of scale Deluxe. Yeah, the scale in the Deluxe line is not existing.

    If Prowl didn't want to get cancelled, he shouldn't have spoken at that Sentinel Prime rally!

    Very sad to hear. I was actually looking forward to this release. Wanted him as Prowl and the Hasbro release as Checkpoint

    Sorta a shame since it is a good figure, plenty of the original still around though from what I can tell.

    At this point the production is likely finished. I want to know what they’re going to do with all these copies.

    @Black Convoy this was first mentioned here: Takara Tomy Earthspark listings (different than Hasbro versions)
    Can that post be moved to this thread?
    That’s really only for Generations. Of all the kiddie stuff that Hasbro puts out, most doesn’t get released by Takara. No BotBots either for instance. They kinda cherry pick. They did a few things from the ROTB line, but skipped just as much if not more. Heck, even for Studio Series their numbering and releases are different to an extent.

    Also, according to the contract, they have the option to opt out of releasing anything that they co-develop at any time, if they deem it unsuitable for their market. In such a case, Hasbro will reimburse them for any costs incurred on their end.

    If this isn\'t proof that Earthspark is cancelled, idk what is.
