    I just placed an order for Huffer on Pulse and Amazon. We'll see who gets it to me first.

    Interesting that Amazon has the deluxes in Wave 2 for $19.99 while the Wave 1 are still $22.99.

    I don't see Inferno on Amazon yet.

    Stupid Target had Dinobot up but not Huffer, I had a 10% off 1 purchase coupon I didn't want to waste on just one, and within a few minutes of searching, Dinobot was sold through.

    Luckily Amazon had Huffer and Dinobot alike and at $19.99 and $29.99 instead of any inflated pricing, but no coupon for that preorder.

    Obviously he's a Fossilizer so you can do whatever you want, but it looks like Ractonite has a different "official" shoulder configuration in the renders (different eye colors too). Also interesting to note that the Pulse file name has the preliminary name Catbone.

    Got my Wave 2 pre-orders in through Pulse! Inferno, Dinobot, Airazor, Ultra Magnus and Huffer will arrive in early May. It'll likely be a month after everyone gets theirs but I don't mind waiting. I got plenty of new stuff arriving in April too!

    If I'm lucky enough to see his box-art I'll post an update.

    Is there ANY difference in Arcee versus her Earthrise counterpart?

    In the last few days a few of them have dropped down to $19.99. (Cheetor first, then Black Arachnia today)

    Since the Hasbro announcement also puts them at $19.99 MSRP I'm wondering if they decided against bumping up the price until after WfC. At which point we'll see changes made across all price points.

    Right, but Wave one figures are showing up as sale prices, the MSRP is still showing as $22.99. And warpath hasn't dropped. These are all listed as $19.99, not showing a higher MSRP.

    It's marked as a "sale price" because Amazon already had them listed at the previous price. They could sit at $19.99 forever if Amazon wants.

    Dude, that's pretty much what they're doing. Beastwars stuff in kingdom, Cybertron Optimus in Siege, cybertron hotshot in siege. Armada starscream in thrilling thirty, (admittedly a few years back now) Headmasters like apeface and snapdragon. You're really only arguing that Hasbro throttle back a bit on g1 homage and go with other corners of the franchise a bit more than they already are. Well there, I argue that they are giving people the most wanted and recognizable versions of these character.

    That argument cuts against me as well. Why has there been a whole subline the last two years dedicated to homaging the disgusting, cringey Bay verse and it's ugly designs? Well much as I am revulsed by it, I have to admit that, as sad an idea as it is, a lot of people, *gag repressing the need to vomit* grew up on those movies and their designs. (Jesus Christ.) I would love for Studio series to have been eliminated or way parred down so I could get more of what I want, but I have to admit that maintaining the Bayverse line, much as I hate to admit it, is another key part of Hasbro's brand management.

    how do you know that??
    TBH, it would be the easiest pass of any recent titan or commander for me, Rodimus has simply nothing to do with commander size

    One of our reliable leakers, @Apollux , has said that he is commander class. He will include an actually good trailer that converts into his battle platform as well as a sword, some blasters, matrix with effect, etc. It has been said that prices don't dictate sizes. They dictate complexity, parts count and an overall better toy.

    Because the entire mainline has leaked except for the commander and titan and we know Rodimus Prime is leaked as well. Also commander makes sense for him as it would allow a voyager sized bot with a fully fleshed out "trailer"/battle platform unlike the leader Prime, where people complained about the trailer being a hollow box that was too small

    In for the wave at Pulse. These preorders are starting to stack up and it make me feel dirty.
