    In fairness how many versions of wheeljack, sunstreaker and trailbreaker have there been at this stage?

    For the price they are asking there needs to be a lot more to the package for fans to pick up en masse

    Just got mine from Pulse. LOVE all of them! I thought I was going to sell the older versions but they're still neat alternate/ toy decos to keep around.

    I mean, sunstreaker had Classics and Combiner Wars, and Trailbreaker had Thrilling 30 and Combiner Wars, and I think that's about it for main releases. They did have earthrise but those were INSANELY hard to get and the aftermarket prices are abysmal. So I'm kinda glad to get this set as someone who was fairly new to collecting back then and didn't have the budget I do now. I understand what you're saying but I'm pretty sure this is a good thing overall.

    Yeah for newer collectors it's a good set.

    I do think it could've been done better.

    Personally I would've loved a ratchet, ironhide, mirage, prowl and smokescreen set.

    But that's me

    I sold my Earthrise Sunstreaker and Trailbreaker and immediately regretted it. It wasn’t an issue with money but more with display space. I should have kept them and rotated the display.
    I kept my original Jazz and Wheeljack. I like the new white color but already have upgrade kits on the Earthrise version and like the vehicle decos better.

    They look great, only issue I have is that Hound's missile launcher barely pegs in the port on the hood in robot mode, it flops around loosely.

    I had that problem and literally just fixed it. I think it's because I wasn't pushing down hard enough, I was just messing with the figure, pushed the missile launcher in the hole, heard it click, and now it's nice and snug in there! It's strange lol

    Just got my set in. When I’m home I’ll look them over and report any notable QC issues.

    I think that we exist in a weird bubble in which something not immediately selling out makes it a peg warmer.

    I see the same thing in the G.I. Joe collecting community, and for all of the worrying, it hasn't really seemed to do much to slow Classified down, and that's a MUCH smaller fanbase.

    I wish EVERYTHING fit that definition of peg warming- it's nice not to have to panic-preorder all of the damned time.

    There's no such thing as a slow burner in entertainment these things. There used to be but across a lot of entertainment if something doesn't sell or stream exceptionally well on release it can get canned. I'm thinking of a few netflix shows that got cancelled because figures weren't very high on their first weekend of release.

    Likewise cinemas are known to pull movies if they don't do well first weekend. I don't think this set will peg warm for reasons that it's not good, it's just expensive and we all don't have the money to buy a set that's largely redoes.

    Well, it worked on the left port, but not the right. I have Detritus and his fits in perfectly on both ports so no idea what's up with that.

    It’s gotta last so I can get a set with Sideswipe, Prowl, Bluestreak and Mirage.

    Yeah, hopefully I can get gun sent instead of exchanging the whole set. Emailed customer service.

    I had a friend that was missing the same gun a couple of weeks ago. He had to return the entire set unfortunately.

    Its funny because right out of the box I ordered the Nonnef Upgrade kits for the cars and gave them those guns instead, but I did get the guns in my box (gave one to Huffer).

    Anyone looking to part with the new guns that come with Sunstreaker and Wheeljack?

    Who is parting everyone not Hound from their sets? Papa needs a flawless Sunny head and chest. Mine was unfortunately not.
