    One might imagine that SS86 figures could pop into Selects, as well - Stepper, Orion Pax, pick a Junkion*, maybe some Sharkticon redeco** - if they're looking to do more deluxe figures. I'd also add that Glyph and Tapout were rumored before and might show up again w/some more distance from the previous uses of the CJ mold.

    *I think Wreck-Gar was leaked as a voyager, but w/the SG two-pack at the end of GS this year, it's worth keeping this option in mind, especially if paired with Detritus

    **I'm not sure if there is a good canonical redeco (well, I want the Meccannibals, but that's not gonna happen), but even something as offbeat as matching the Bailiff deco from the Quint Pit set would probably have a sufficiently large constituency. I suppose it's also worth suggesting the Bailiff version of the Alicon mold in green/pink would have a similar audience.

    Throw away the packaging. Problem solved.

    And doesn't mean I have to care. But I'm happy for those who are excited.

    Man, from what I am hearing, I might at least have a very minor case of OCD.

    But, anyways, when it comes to molds I want for at least Kingdom if not just other molds is an Earthmode Hound. We need one.

    Honestly, and I’m not trying to make light of anything here, I think a lot of collectors do.

    I always liked the whole “revealing the robot” aspect of vehicle mode packaging. When you get it out of he box, the first thing you do is turn it into robot mode- a lot more satisfying than turning the robot into the usually mundane (but still cool) vehicle mode.

    Wait - there are numbers on boxes now?

    This exactly. It goes back to the whole "Robots in Disguise" thing.

    I prefer the packages-in-robot-mode style. I like to compare the paint. Which online buying and Selects packaging take away anyway. I recently bought Selects Smokescreen, and his face paint is so bad it looks like he has blue mascara running down his face.

    Yep, next to the name. WFC-S## for Siege, WFC-E## for Earthrise. Kingdom moved the numbers to the top flap of the package, but kept the same numbering style - WFC-K##.

    Yeah. I prefer robot mode packaging too for the same reason. I mostly display my transformers in robot mode so I’d like to pick the figure with the best face paint app when given options on the shelf.

    Count me in wanting BW Grimlock from Dinobot especially if they retooled some of the parts into making him look like his design from the IDW BW comics.

    Well they always have these options

    Cheetor - Horror Nightprowler
    Blackarachnia - Original toy and Horrorcon color schemes
    Scorponok - BW Sandstorm
    Waspinator - Fox Kids repaint
    Tracks - Loudpedal
    Arcee - Combiner Hunters color scheme and Animated Dragstrip homage
    Elita-1 - Animated color scheme with Animated inspired head

    Since January I have purchased nearly every Siege and Earthrise figure. I never noticed.

    Honestly believe this is a marketing gimmick for the OCD customers (and I agree with @MagnusPrimal that we all have some measure of OCD) similar to the numbered spines on Criterion discs. The numbers are completely arbitrary and unconnected to the figures themselves. I recommend everyone ignore them.

    Didn’t forget Horrorcon Waspinator (since you mentioned two others). Man, we’re just a BW mutant Soundwave away from being able to have all four of these guys. I’d even settle for a Bat Primal remold at this point.

    Of mainline Ultra Magnuses, this is only the second to come out since the Warden era began. Combiner Wars Magnus was IDW, not G1.

    Though that's still more than Dinobot & Airazor had in the same time frame, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    It's a Primax cluster universe for sure, but I personally wouldn't define it as G1, as in, the first generation of the franchise. Mainly Marvel and Sunbow could hold that title, and maaaaybe that horrid NES game. =p

    Though maybe @Shmoptimus Prime defined it similarly to you? Though if that's the case, then I don't think that pointing that out has the significance that Shmoptimus Prime implied. If "G1" simply means all Primax cluster universes, that seems like too broad of a definition to be useful in this context. Maybe I'm wrong. What are your thoughts on it?

    Well, TECHNICALLY, G1 ended when G2 started, but Dreamwave and IDW did updated renditions of G1, so now matter how many extra ingredients were added later, it definitely started as a G1 universe. I don’t know about Primax and other club stuff that they started using to categorize universes.. Anyway, I was just making a comment.

    BW Grimlock would be a nice repaint, but in terms of mold reuses I'm hoping for a voyager version of this:
