    Ah, didn't realize that was the problem with Soundbarrier. Also, Eject also has a clear chestplate and shoulders.

    Most definitely yes! Jazz and Wheeljack at least, to go with Origin Bumblebee. Just like they appear in that first episode. And any other characters they want to do in that style, I’m all in!


    Yes, I really hope any future Thunderwing includes a fully transforming figure of his inner bot.

    Siege Ratbat & Rumble really need a re-release.

    Well, since the joints are hinged and hopefully a far enough distance away from the body as to not press on it with counterforce at the slightest movement, it should be fine. I'd be more worried about it getting loose than breaking.

    Blaster: Was all set to rave about this and get rid of the TR Blaster, then I noticed the head. The head is too rounded. That's one thing the TR version did better. I guess they were really going for a cartoon look.

    The answers on SS 86: Confused about them answering with Blugeon and Thunderwing. Neither were in the movie?

    Finally blaster is revealed, and well worth the wait Both blaster and eject look amazing.
    Now I'm really hoping for a twincast & rewind vs. Soundblaster(earthmode) & frenzy(ss86 rumble repaint) 4 pack. Please hastak please I beg you, make it happen.

    Also it's great to hear that we might get new bludgeon and thunderwing soon, I'm really hoping they aren't stuck in core class like there fellow pretenders are.

    Calling it now.
    Since Kingdom Blaster is from the Netflix Soundwave, Cybertronian Blaster, from the Siege Soundwave will be in Selects.

    Probably with a normal Eject. Oh, you sneaky marketing people, I see what you did there, making us double-dip to get an accurate Eject!

    This sounds promising at least.

    This DOESN’T look promising.

    Blaster isn’t from Soundwave. It’s an all new mold. This has been confirmed already

    Oh really? I guess it's hard to tell. It looks awfully similar. (Engineering-wise, anyway, I know there's knobs and things to make it look more radio-ey)

    .........why even bother making a new mold? Blaster and Soundwave are identical except for their heads.
    I mean I'm not gonna tell Hasbro how to spend their budgets, but..... that's just dumb

    Blaster and Soundwave aren’t identical. The originals G1 toys were completely different. They just transform similarly and are both tape compatible Soundwave is a mirco cassette recorder and blaster is a boom box. Hasbro has just been cheaper over the years making them repaints of each other when that’s not actual what they’re suppose to be. Also why would a new mold be dumb? Do you not want a new mold? You just want a repaint with a new head? It’s never dumb to get accurate versions of characters

    No they aren't? They've always looked very different, and have completely different alt modes.

    I'm saving that one for a third-party maker.

    I don't have a store less than 2 hours away that reliably stocks transformers. I hope some of the sites have it at some point to order.

    Otherwise I'll end up having to pay ebay prices to get my copy of blaster. And I have to have one!

    I don't think he's gang-molded either, Eject is translucent blue unlike Blaster's chest window which is translucent black.

    In what world? Function?

    Because both their original design inspirations were based on different tape deck designs - Soundwave's OG design basis was a Walkman while Blaster's was a portable boombox.

    Additionally their transformations, design, and engineering were separate.

    I mean...if they're the same as in they're both portable music players...sure. But outside of that, not even a little bit.

    I have since clarified I meant engineering-wise. Like 10 minutes ago
