    Why did I buy the damn core rumble if they were just going to include it in the set? I don’t need three of that figure

    if they swapped the rumble/frenzy and added a laserbeak and ratbat, this set would actually make sense with the current way these figures are being sold.

    Meanwhile all of the people around here who struggled to even find the original pack at Walmart are happily taking this because they've been dying to get that mold and secondary prices remain absurd.

    Booooo Frenzy, boooooo Ravage. The only way this “package” is worth the money to me is Buzzsaw plus literally any other two cassettes other than Ravage Frenzy Rumble or Lazerbeak.

    Rumble is a Core class, the other two are Micromasters.

    And I thought everybody who wanted a modern Buzzsaw would have had the Masterpiece release which is vastly superior to the Micromaster.

    YOu guys deserve this, Soundwave was stupidly hard to find. I payed scalper prices but I'm happy with my ER Soundwave. The extra ruble is really cool too, all you'd need is to buy a separate frenzy and bing bang boom S1 Cassettes

    1 Voyager + 1 Core + 2 Micromasters = Leader

    After years of people complaining about exclusivity and Walmart's poor distribution, it's weird seeing the Venn diagram of people who don't see a point in this existing. Happy for anyone who missed out on the Walmart pack. It's a great figure.

    While some may benefit with these product refreshes, I wish Hasbro would mix it in more with other figures they haven\'t done to complete sets....coughWindchargercough.
    Between Dramatic Capture Series, 86\' Springer, and now this, repaints seem to be abundant last-hurrahs. Despite already owning most of the molds of the Autobot 5 pack, it did have Hound as an incentive, but Buzzsaw is hardly on that level for me. Happy for those who missed out...just wish it didnt feel like a gang rush of reuses.

    Buzzsaw is the big draw for me. I have a yellowed Netflix figure, the DCS figure, and now this comes out. I don't really need Soundwave with the DCS already in hand. Rumble is okay, I have the SS86 toon ones already though so I'm not quite sure what I'll do with him. But that Ravage mold is a dog (both literally and figuratively). Really no interest in him. But for Buzzsaw, I may still pick one up before aftermarket prices soar.

    Why would I get an MP Buzzsaw to go with Netflix Soundwave?

    Another reminder of people can't get passed their own preferences and biases to see the greater fandom interestes

    The fact that I'm even considering this one at all after I got the Nemisis Bridge and Shattered Glass packs speaks volumes to how much of a Soundwave fanboy I am. Purple *Frenzy* is really what's selling me, and a black WFC Ravage to not-quite-complete the set (common Ratbat get reissued, Thundertron doesn't count), even though the mold is frankly not great... Uuggh. Just about every figure this wave is juuuuuust on the cusp of being a pass.

    Save for The Motormaster. You're doing great, sweetie!

    For £55 this seems like a solid deal honestly - although I can’t figure out if the silver deco on the arms and feet will be on the final release. They’re not on the stock photos, and Mark says some of the silver deco was removed for consistency. Either way, my Netflixwave is sadly a little yellowed, so this set will make for a solid replacement.

    They couldn’t have removed the Siege hangover arm kibble?

    Just realized that he's packed with *Core* Rumble. Which explains the extra $10 cost over the original Netflix pack despite having just the one extra tape.

    What a disappointment. Not a single thing changed from the Netflix release. Still has all the awful unnecessary Siege parts on him. Ravage is the exact same as before. That Rumble is worthless since we have the SS86 version. The only thing worth getting from this set is Buzzsaw.

    Soundwave desperately needs an all new mold. What a waste

    The only one I have among these are Rumble and my Soundwave is the Siege version so this might not be so bad to get.

    Buzzsaw is cool to have, I wonder if they are going to release a yellow version later on.

    Ravage just looks odd, he is more bear than cat.

    Since this is supposed to be a leader the least they could add are arm covers and wrist swivels.

    Great that I can get the most accessible version of this Soundwave mold, most of them were stuck to exclusives or import packs. I like the paintwork otherwise on them all.
