    lol and people keep on saying "Well they have to move from SS to SS86 cause G1's selling and the movie figures aren't even though the line was going on fine beforehand".

    About damn time that we see Blaster!

    Sad to see the transclearant plastic on Eject though, and I was really hoping that Appolux was wrong about that....

    Wow even the first comment calls out the fact they don't credit this site and the site owner gets into a hissy fit about it immediately.

    Heck yeahhhh!! He looks awesome!!! Plus, i fully expected this to be a mid/late 2022 release date in Legacy. Final wave of Kingdom is VERY exciting news. I am a little baffled, however, on how they included a $5 micro master to a voyager class figure without upping the price. That does concern me as to the compromises they had to make with blaster (like hollow parts). Any thoughts anyone?

    How funny would it be if Bludgeon doubled as both SS86 and RotF

    Straight release with no preorder is concerning for me. SOOOOOO many figures, Transformers and other brands, have not been showing up here in Ohio for me. I found a sea of Shadow Panthers but no Waspinators in sight, had to order Gnaw online. Most of my purchases have been online through Amazon or BBTS preorders. BBTS better be my saving grace on News Year Day in securing Blaster, Pipes, & Slammer.

    Was there any reasoning given for why there won’t be preorders for this wave?

    I can see maybe since it’s the last of not only the Kingdom line, but WFC as a whole. So maybe Hasbro just wants to get it out the door and move on??

    Blaster looks pretty good, especially in robot mode. Agree that player mode looks a bit too detailed. Not real crazy about Eject being clear plastic, but if they revisit them in SS86's supposed upcoming Core class there might be a "solid" version there. I'd assume SS86 cassettes will just be reuses of the micromaster versions from WfC/Legacy with weapons. Eject and Blaster's other cassettes (and Ratbat)debuted in the 86 movie, so they would be logical for that line.

    Plus, the possibility for a Legacy Thunderwing... Hope it at least has both shell and inner bot components and the two at least combine in jet mode.

    Just googled. TIL Devcon is an actual honest to god TF. Lol. For years, I kept hearing fans complain about not getting Devcon in Studio Series so I thought he was a bot that just didn't make it past the concept page.

    But yes, I'll get right on it. Scourge or Cyclonus seems like a nice base to work from. :D

    that was really two questions in one, assumedly because they were from the same guy at the same moment (remember, these are paraphrased). Studio series was asked about, as well as deep cut characters in general.

    Studio series question was answered with "not ending anytime soon", and as for deep cut characters was the response about Thunderwing and Bludgeon (though at this point, bludgeon isn't really much of a deep cut anymore.)

    you’re right, characters showing personality is dumb and everyone should stand with their arms at their sides in the shelf.

    now I have to throw away my origins bumblebee because he has a smile and isn’t dead inside like everyone else

    International cargo shipping is an absolute mess right now. Thats why in the interview they stated that they expect Legacy to be available in stores by April 1st, but their pre-orders are for July 1st to give them a buffer just incase.

    In Marvel G1, Blaster and Grimlock are about the same size.

    Well the TR version was fairly big, while this one is a bit small. So it kind of depends on your size preference there...

    Blaster looks great, and this will be my first time buying him after passing on other renditions of him. But I must say that I’m real bummed out about the clear parts on Eject, which seem unnecessary and would’ve been the icing on the cake overall had they not done so. But I’m still stoked!

    So you prefer inferior versions to fit in with your weird sense of scale, got it.

    Pointing out that TR Blaster is inferior isn't being unkind or indecent.

    Good thing the toys aren't referencing Marvel at all.

    Looks good, but eject will disintegrate within a year so not sure how excited I am about that…
