    I still got some figures then, and I got some recently as well, and smokescreen was a terrible figure even for my 6-7 year old self’s standards.

    Yeah the diamond crotch is actually a nice differentiation between him and Ratchet and homages the toy a bit more than a square does. For as boxy as he is, it gives him a bit of unique style.

    Apparently to one of the fan first Fridays hasbro read TF forums, so I feel extremely bad for all the hasbro employees who have to read the movie forums as well as the news forums.

    With how animation-accurate the latest Generations figures have been, I think we're more likely to see a new mold for Orion.

    Ummm.... I'm confused at this statement. Animated had an entire toyline as well when it was airing. Unless you mean that Siege is supposed to be FOC?

    Yeah I’m sure they already deal with enough chaos in their line of work already, forums is just icing on the cake.

    I mean it's probably better that they keep an 'ear to the ground' rather than do what they do in complete ignorance of what some fans may or may not think.

    Though I can also imagine the thought of having to read pages upon pages of midwit commentary and theories about you, your job and all that can get ... draining. At the very least I hope they have a few people doing this so they can tap out and take a break.

    Unfortunately I would have to agree with you but I would easily buy a SS86 Kup repaint as Orion Pax, especially if a newer Wheelie is ever made that can be repainted into Dion. All that said, the SS86 Kup mold with the removable limb gimmick can moderately pass as destroyed Orion Pax before being remade into Prime.

    And the toyline was hollow shit. I was just saying FOC deserves it alongside Animated, which I also want new figures of.
    T30 Blitzwing had a shitty face swapping gimmick like his Animated version.

    I thought it was a pretty nifty homage.

    As for tomorrow, the good news is that with the exception of Terrorsaur, Prime OP, BB Skywarp and Thundercracker, Blaster, Perceptor, and Jackpot, there's nothing left on the leak thread that I fell I need to preorder. I'll wait for everything else I want later.
    The bad news is that's another $200 worth of plastic.

    Do we have any news on BW Inferno? As bad as I want the fire ant, I'm beginning to hope it's next year's budget. :)

    I doubt we’re getting something tomorrow, as I’d say the only reason we got 2 in a row is because it was the end of one month and the start of another. Plus, there hasn’t been anything like the description leak for anything recently, so I just don’t see it happening. It may happen, though.
    It was a nice concept and homage, but the faces being made out of rubber was a bad idea, and, due to the figure being 7 - 8 years old now, the faces get stuck most of the time.

    Oof, didn't realize they were made of rubber. That wasn't a good decision on their part...

    Oddly enough, I never had a problem using Wheeljack to pose. I just thought the gray swords were lame, but that’s it. Ratchet I never got him either, but I thought he looked pretty okay too.

    I thought the face-changing gimmick was incredibly functionally flawed even at time of release, and the reason was determined to be excessive paint on the post the faces rotate around?

    I'm not sure why Wheeljack is on that list he's amazing by any stretch.
