    Nah. We're buying these toys because Transformers present a unique experience with each new mold, and that's what motivates us. To see what things are like for ourselves.

    I am anyway.

    Voicing one’s issues with decreasing quality - disregarding the matter of whether this is even the case here - wasn’t really the angle I was taking. Rather, I was pointing out that this is a Generations update; things don’t have to be exactly the same as 30 years ago. And if they do for you, well then we’ve got the Masterpiece line to get you everything you wanted from you BW toy back when you were a kid. The Generations line though has always been about giving us homages to the original toys but with a few twists. Obviously the WFC trilogy has been increasingly favoring accuracy, so in a way I guess people can’t be blamed for being pulled into this mentality. Even then, we are talking about a gun here. And we’ve had plenty of characters in WFC that didn’t come with their 'original' weapons.

    And what about the weaponizers: the main gimmick of this whole trilogy. So much fun to be had reimagining these characters with different kinds of weapons. I think there’s too much on offer in WFC to be pulled down by the need for weapon accuracy. Doesn’t mean we shouldn’t point out flaws and the cheapening out on Hasbro’s part, but demanding even more accuracy to the original toys, that’s just too much (heck if anything, it can be argued that it’s about time that we slowed down this accuracy train...).

    I get that, but that’s just the way the market is right now. Hasbro releases a toy with (in the eyes of collectors) some compromises, then 3P steps in to fill in the gaps so to speak. It's not my preference either. Obviously, I'd rather for Hasbro to make an allround better product and pay 5 to 10 dollars more instead of having to make another purchase at 10 to 20 dollars. But I guess Hasbro doesn’t see money in that.

    Yes, I understand that (sadly). That's why I rarely buy nowadays (that, and increased price all around and this pandemic situation reduces the budget for toys even further).

    When do you think the first stores will get Tigatron in stock?

    Fan 1st Friday coming up soon. I'm certain they'll "reveal" wave 4 and open pre-orderes. Everyone hoping for a golden disk Terrorsaur reveal will probably get disappointed. Slammer and Pipes fans will be happy though, as this will be the first look aside from the art work. Pipes is uninteresting to me, as he seems to use the same gimmick hindered elbows as Huffer. Slammer might be cool. He's essentially a new character. Shadow panther might be worth picking up too if he looks as cool as I think he will. Especially with the mutant head he'd be a nice "dark energon" infused Cheetor. I wonder if they applied any paint to the beast mode aside from the eyes

    I'm looking forward to seeing more angles on Tigatron's beast mode in the lava diorama. Hopefully compared to Cheetor

    I feel like the Golden Disk dudes will be revealed on Transformers Tuesdays, or we will see the first figure revealed by the end of August, and the next ones will be revealed at the end of the next 3 months. Much like the Galactic Oddysey reveals

    For what it's worth:
    I commented complaining about this figure & the Kingdom toyline a few weeks ago. I thought about it some, and realized ever since being a kiddo in the 90's, I've always liked non-show characters better than the ones they put into S1 of BW (design- and toy-wise, anyways). So Kingdom was never really for me in the first place (well..except Primal, he's an awesome figure), thus I have no place to complain.

    Basically, once I stopped wanting this to be a Polar Claw figure...that's when I realized it's an awesome Tigatron figure.
    Could scarcely have been better really.

    I don't plan to buy, but I'm excited to see his "lava diorama" photos too.

    I agree, but it could take up to 500 years.

    Hello,

    I'm new around the boards. Based on previous releases, do you all think it is likely this figure will get a reveal and release date or may it just start showing up in stores like Waspinator and Shadow Panther? Thanks.

    It will eventually get a reveal yes and also it may start showing up before that said reveal. Hard to say for sure which will happen first. Pulsecon is next month so a safe bet is a reveal then
