    I mean.... what? Why? If you're excited for this then I'm happy for you but I'm looking it and just wondering, "WTF is this garbage?!? Who even wants this!!!!???"... I dunno. More money for future purchases so I guess I'm good with that.

    I mean if you bother to look at previous pages there are folks who do want this.

    Probably because on the show he doesn’t have an Earthmode. They end up in Prehistoric Times at the end of Earthrise. Same reason Nemesis Prime uses the Siege Optimus model.

    Buying Transformers has now become likened to buying Stocks on the Stock Exchange, you don't want to buy in to early, because share prices could plummet, and you could take a much better position if you hold out!

    Or

    Like Gambling in a game of poker, gotta know when to hold'em & when to fold em, when to walk away, and when to call Hasbro's bluff on a figure! And it could definitely save you a lot of time and money, if you know what type of hand Hasbro's planning to play on a given figure. :cool:

    This ^

    i just canceled my preorder so someone who truly wants it can get it. And I have 60 bucks to spend on another thing. That Commander Rodimus looks cool and uncontroversial

    Same, going to need three purple Paleotrex. I suspect there will be a lot of Megatrons on eBay.

    Yeah, I thought the rumors said he had a modified chest for it, but it looks like it just pegs into the 5mm ports on the treads on his back (or maybe not? Maybe they re-engineered the back part to include pegs? I guess I should have assumed the minimal amount of work would be done for this). Looks incredibly stupid, and is barely different from the previous Netflix one.

    Would have been a nice opportunity for a premium silver painted Earthrise one, instead of the Siege mold for the billionth time.

    I think I might be the only person who likes the Earthrise Megatron head better than the Siege one, haha. I guess I like the longer, more aristocratic face. The Siege one has crisper sculpted detail, but shapewise is too squashed and scowly for me.

    I mean, neither one is really great, but...

    Can't remember, it's been forever since I watched it so I don't remember any dialogue about the matrix specifically upgrading him

    Yeah, but when I was a kid, I could see inside the box. I could look at it and determine if I had it already. This is completely different.

    They *are* milking the heck out of it, yes... I'd imagine the degradation must be something substantial. This is now the...what? 6th or 7th use of it?

    -Original
    -35th
    -Netflix
    -G2 Combat Hero
    -Netflix 2
    -Parts of it for Earthrise and G2.

    It probably flops all over the place. lol

    Allspark? More like smallspark.

    The pulse pre-order didn't bill me when I placed it. I'm probably going to cancel mine regardless.

    Considering the last didn’t even make it to retail and was online only you don’t need to be worrying about kids getting the same toy. God knows it wasn’t the end of the world when I had three Donatello’s in trench coat, 2 rat kings, 3 shredders and 2 krangs. I survived
