    I wouldn’t use the word sad, moreso these aren’t collector geared figures. Why are they being judged as so? These have been and continue to be geared towards a younger audience who it’s not going to care that much about articulation for example. These have a place clearly, cyberverse toys aren’t my thing either but I’m a 35 year old adult collector so calling them midtier seems like an unfair way to judge imo

    Just remember their prices are all in the much weaker Australian Dollar.

    Anyone who canceled the Dramatic Set purely based on this unknown listing and is upset… deserves it for canceling without having more information.

    Leaks are important because we know exactly what to expect and nothing is wrong and nothing changes

    I know this would have excited me as a kid though. Even if it is a bit weird these three versions of these characters have nicer toys in Earthspark Deluxes on the shelves, this would be the catalogue item in the EOFY toy sale that I would have been bought after being told no to those individual releases all year. Deluxe Soundwaves are important because core class might be dead and if all the main characters are leaders kid me does not own any main character.

    And if I am right it is the retooled Starscream that does have knees. Or this would be looked at more negatively even for a kids item

    Honestly I both agree and disagree, I think HW Optimus is on the same level as this.

    I had to weigh between getting the Nemesis Bridge Set or the Marvel Comics themed Shockwave, but having the Soundwave and Laserbeak trumped the Optimus Prime head.

    Depending on where he lives in the US, wouldn't the shipping eat up any potential savings made from the weaker Australian Dollar? I know I had to stop buying from BBTS because shipping from there to where I live in South-East Asia was at least doubling how much I had to pay for just the toy. I helps that nowadays there are plenty of closer options which are a lot cheaper shipping wise.

    I don't think that this is "random". After all, as you can see in this thread there were a number of people who cancelled preorders for the Takara Tomy Dramatic Capture Nemesis Bridge Set based on the listing for this item, so updating people so they now know what this item allegedly contains is pretty pertinent to a lot of people.

    I'm curious, was there some sort of time limit for the Dramatic Capture set via Hasbro Pulse? Like "we'll charge you on this date" and so they couldn't wait for more information?

    I\'ve never been so relieved to see a product reveal this unimpressive. I was so stressed because I JUST bought the Nemesis Bridge 3 pack, and was scared this would be better. ... Nope. And thank you God for that!

    It is the starscream with knees, exact same color scheme nothing seems to have changed in any of them as far as I can see.....could have been a great opportunity to add some much needed paint apps to these molds.
