    That's the thing, the fandom really isn't, all they want is the info and will only play along for so long (and the mods end up stepping in because things can and will get out of hand real quick).

    "Desire to move into management." That sounds like a Regional Manager Motivational Ploy to me. :p 

    Have we heard anything on pricing for the big boxes and Amazon? I know the MSRP went up, but no one sells at MSRP after the first wave. Not too concerned with the Titans or much with the Leaders, and I've kind of accepted the commander class, but Core and Voyager will be a large part of my buying next year. I know I'm hosed on deluxes. ;)

    None of that is necessary if you leak all that exclusive goodness.

    In all seriousness I’ll take a few crumbs if you are willing to give them. @CactusReporter throwing this out to you too!

    For all below:

    Are we getting this figure and if yes where?

    1) Crosscut
    2) Loudpedal
    3) Nacelle
    4) Action Master Thundercracker
    5) Ricochet
    6) Reboost
    7) Red Mirage
    8) Earth Mode Hound

    Leakers have said that he'll be a classics style reimagining to fit in squarely with the G1 crowd

    2022 is looking to be a really exciting year for Transformers toys. Even the ones I probably won't buy are pretty cool.

    It's neat to see Cybertron Metroplex. I never owned the original toy, but I remember seeing it at Toys R Us back when I first got into Transformers. It's one of those designs that stuck in my head, and I never even knew who it was until recently.

    I want all of the BB Cybertron bots. Which isn't to say I'll buy them all (I'll see which ones look best), but I'm really excited to see pictures of them. I hope Ratchet is good, I still don't have a Ratchet toy. I'm also excited for Core Ravage. And I'm glad to see there seems to be a lot of him in the cases.

    Might consider getting Laser Optimus, I've always liked that design. Although I kind of wish there was a Voyager option without the trailer. I would have loved that as a kid, but now I'd rather just have Optimus at a cheaper price, and not have to worry about storing the trailer.

    If they make a new one, I'm sure it'll be very G1 like everything surrounding it. Which is what I want, personally. And yeah, Gears is another one I'd like to see alongside Brawn and Windcharger, the three of whom would round out the Season 1 minibots.

    Honestly Animated characters could easily fit into Generations by just straigning the lines and make them a bit more blocky, and I'm sure they could even for Prime.[​IMG]

    Although that would require them to try, rather than just what are sounding like G1ified in the stupidest way possible.

    Personally I'm all for leakers having a little fun with stuff, but I recall the powers that be being pretty upset about the Walmart thread. So maybe we shouldn't if we don't want JT and others to get in more trouble.

    These leakers shouldn't tease us so hard if they aren't prepared to back it up. Why even bother claiming you'll answer any question when you're just gonna blueball or give a cryptic hint? Some leakers, not naming names, clearly enjoy leading us on and having us wrapped around their finger. But it's pointless to get worked up over toy leaks, so I'll just leave it at that.

    I like what WFC/Kingdom have done, sticking close to the source material while offering updates here and there, and that's what I'd like to see from Animated figs. I want the Animated characters to look animated-y, not geewunny or beastwarsy.

    But, if Legacy is going in a new direction - or, rather, an old direction by going back to Thrilling 30's way of doing things - then it only stands to reason that every character is going be adapted in some way, shape, or form to fit a unified aesthetic. That aesthetic doesn't have to be, nor should it be, super G1-ified designs. But I won't be surprised if/when the Prime characters look like modern updates rather than direct adaptations of their onscreen selves, and so forth.

    Armada Starscream is a remold of shine Starscream that was the answer. I literally told you guys.

    Put two and two together. What else would Hasbro would feel to need to code name that isn’t movie related.

    No, its a fun time to be wealthy.

    The prices have jacked up 15-20%, and like I say with every increase, my boss doesnt provide pay raises every time Hasbro says its time to pay more. :banghead: 

    More product, higher prices, less purchases from me.

    And if ur immune to $23 deluxes (and mind u, thats not a locked MSRP, as in golden days past!), prepare to pay more: Covid shipping is a mess and is costing companies billions. By Xmas, FedEx is raising prices, and so will USPS (most likely). Hasbro can either eat the costs orrrrrrrr.... yeah, raise prices again.

    No, the best time to be a collector was years ago, when the toys were affordable and Hasbro wasted time on Aaron Archer's Unicron Trilogy, rather than do what Takara suggested (G1 continued). Im still salty.

    The only things they’ve codenamed are movie figures and collaborative figures.

    Are Shine figures more collabs? Would be odd to have Starscream since they’ve all been new characters so far… (except for the MP GB Optimus one)
