    I found T-Wrecks on UK Hasbro Pulse. Can't check Us Pulse since it automaticly redirects me to UK one.

    They didn't forget.
    They let the holder of the exclusive, Target, do the reveal.
    Pulse probably put it up in US until redcar pre-order is finished.

    You just need to go down to end of page click on United Kingdom and it brings up us option. It's not up on the us hasbro pulse or at least I can't find it.

    They can charge all the fees they want. It doesn't impact the cost of my purchase. I actually get 5% *off* for using it.

    Happy Tuesday. Your news is the release date for T-Wrecks and a heads up it'll initially be a Red Card exclusive in the US.

    I hope this ends up being a strong seller, I’d love to see more repaints of the Beast Wars crew.
    It’s certainly something I’d probably pick up if I see it in stores just for how good the dinosaur mode looks.

    I wish Thrust had been done this way; I wasn't able to go out to the store much during quarantine so I missed out on him cuz for some reason they made him not available to order online even though the TC/SW were. I'm a little surprised this is so widely available though; definitely gonna get him since I didn't get ER Megatron anyway and I've always wanted the character (hopefully a 3rd party makes an addable mutant mask; doubtless replacement heads will be a thing but I'm not really into that).

    I am hoping this ends up being like early Rotorstorm samples having the wrong head. What I am expecting is bupkis.

    It's so close to being good, but the lack of the alternate head and gold for the robot mode sadly makes it a pass :(

    I would say given he’s been available in Australia for a little bit now and they all have the mouth closed head with the glam rock lipstick that they probably won’t be changing it. I’m not sure why they ended up scrapping the other head, but it is disappointing.

    Kingdom Galvatron was also available overseas and in earlier retailers with a wrong assembly, but later ones of him were fixed. But I wouldn't count on it.

    A headsculpt is a little different to the shoulder joint being upside down though. I’d be thrilled to be wrong and it would make me want one more if the alternate head was used but I wouldn’t hold your breath

    Everytime I see this thread bumped, I think this is the moment that it's been posted that orders are live.

    Kick in the crotch this thread is now. :lol

    Maybe Hasbro can do mail order replacement heads like the Lightning Collection Dino Thunder White Ranger. The chapped lip version is killing my interest.

    Must buy to total pass.

    After getting Dino Megs in hand, Im pretty disappointed in this mold. Too many flaps that dont line up well in alt mode, makes dino look like a mess. Just looks more impressive in pics than in-hand, imo. Price is fine (no upcharge??? Guess u know its a Target, not Walmart, exclusive), but I dont see myself throwing another $50 on this meh mold.

    I'd look for a discount option, but we all know that the scalper situation is so out of control now that this toy will likely sell out before its even stocked.:banghead:  Good luck, everyone; dont pay scalper prices or u contribute to problem.

    Thrust was available to order from Target's website (I ordered one for me and a couple for friends).

    I had it on auto-refresh all day... you didn't miss out yet. My guess is you will have your chance, don't give up.

    It's "Coming Soon." Right now it's likely a promotional tool to get people to sign up for RedCards ahead of Target's version of Amazon's Prime Days.

    And I'm guessing that's when it'll go live.
