    It may not be "peak" Hound, but it might be LAST Hound with the way a certain phallic-named executive is running things...

    Well this sucks for me. I ain\'t repurchasing the same character versions of the other charectars again, even if the re are different decos, just for \'Earthmode\' Hound. I went heavy into a lot of the redeco and mould reuses over the past few years, did a lot of customizing and bought upgrade kits. No more (till new designs)!

    For those that go for it, I can honestly say 'im happy for you!' :D

    That’s incorrect. Aaron Archer explained once that they come up with the exclusives and shop them around to various retailers. Some are bought. Many are not. So they’re already designed before being shopped around unless something in the process has changed in the past 15 years.

    So as a Collector who wants to upgrade their Hound, Jazz, Wheeljack & Sunstreaker & doesn\'t actually own any version of Trailbreaker...this set seems almost too Perfect.

    Although in saying that I only recently started collecting again after about a Decade of focusing on my Blu-ray Collection so it\'s possible I may be the only person who is 100% behind this set.

    Using the superior Ironhide as an example works against your point. :D

    He really lives up to his Surname:ev: 

    Again, on the recent developments, I too am grumbling as I have ALL except for that new Hound. Hb is really scraping the bottom of the barrel!:mad: 

    But need to chest out, gut in, man up buttercup and start saving (Detritus is indeed a great mold in military green:drool: )

    It’d be great to bring in new or returning collectors…. As long as it doesn’t have battle damage.

    I... I just can't justify buying this pack. I've got four of the figures already. I really don't care about new paint or decos. And I like Siege Hound. This is just... no.

    A lot riding in that "unless something in the process has changed in the past 15 years."

    because it undoubtedly has

    It actually hasn't. During Siege or Earthrise, at Toyfair the 35th anniversary wave (Soundblaster, Bluestreak, Cel shaded Megatron and Cel shaded Optimus Prime) were on display for vendors but were taken down before press were allowed in because Walmart opted to buy in on the wave. Judging by that, @Thundershot is correct (at least partially). Not all exclusive figures are "bought" before they are designed. Some are though, I believe Cosmos and Override were already "bought" by Walmart before their designs were finalized because Takara engineers decided to redesign them as new molds rather than partials, so there's potential evidence for both occurrences.

    Oh, things can absolutely change. Sometimes the retailer will have suggestions or in that case, TT had a better idea.

    I am not familiar with PR, but TF have not had a pause in 40 years and there are currently 4-5 full lines on the shelves, together with a bunch of niche/exclusive items being released d2c.

    Or, a retailer can ask for so many exclusives that Hasbro responds by pumping out barely-altered car brothers.

    It was about discussing the figure until that person decided to be immature in their responses. Also please do not tell me to “stfu” as again, is that how you would respond if we were discussing this in person? People too comfortable on the internet using whatever words they want

    To get my Ghost Starscream I have to get another nearly identical Waspinator. I'm used to this kind of thing in toy collecting, but I definitely prefer when things are more ala carte.

    Power rangers had maybe 4 toylines including super7? And they had to take a break because none of it was selling particularly well.

    I'd say transformers is approaching that point, what with all the stuff going to Ollies and Ross in the US and huge swathes of legacy going on sale in the UK. In Europe, I'm not so sure, because most places don't even carry transformers outside of rescue bots and ROTB.
