    Seems like a good thing to me, not a bad thing. JoeConsumer probably don't care.

    Sign me up for the Gobots. Bugbite and Road Ranger were getting lonely!

    Probably won't get them, but it's nice to see the corpse subline continue. Looking forward to Wheeljack and Windcharger in 2025.

    I'm glad the people who still want ER Soundwave can get him, hopefully Ramjet isn't too far off too.

    I'm curious what this Bludgeon will look like exactly but I'll likely be getting Ruckus regardless. Roadpig is what I expected, so I'm happy to get him.

    I'm curious to see if this Prime will basically have the same deco as (anime) Missing Link.

    it’s probably good for people that missed out but like man SS86 Soundwave is coming and there’s just so many great options for leaders in a line like United it just doesn’t seem necessary for a retail release

    TREDS LET'S GOOOOOO.

    Ahem, this year is shaping up to be pretty dang great. The e-hobby gobots have been some I'm been really itching for, so I'm most excited about them. I'm honestly surprised Target wants to do a second battle damaged two pack since the first one seemingly shelf warmed to mega clearance status (one set was still at a local Target at Christmas here). The retro G1 Optimus is kinda fantastic, but I bet the price on that thing is gonna be sickening. The Starseekers and Mayhem capsules are gonna be chock full of characters pulled up from the far reaches of Transformers. I'm happy Crashbar is getting another use, that's a good mold. I already have the Netflix Soundwave, but a reissue was sorely needed. Hopefully they alter the mold a little bit or include just a boatload of tapes, like the forgotten Buzzsaw. Siege Ravage kind of sucks so a new version of that tape would be quite nice.

    What a way to celebrate 40 years. 
    Putting G1 OP with trailer under Walmart? Good for people in American Soil.
    But what about fans overseas that have no Walmart? Resort to inflated prices thru hobby shops because it\'s a Walmart Exclusive? 
    Hasbro-Walmart are being inclusive on this move.

    For $10 more, he better have more than two.

    Huh? That was late 2022/early last year. We had an unknown SS leader re-issue coming this year that was confirmed to have been dropped in favor of this Target prime.

    True, true. I guess I mostly think of these guys as the ehobby team and not the "actual" Gobots like Crasher who look more like their original Gobots designs, if that makes any sense.

    No worries.

    But yeah, rather infuriating to see a SS re-issue get dumped in favor of shelfwarm-imus prime.

    Meh, it’s disappointing that it’s over target nonsense more so imo. Damn, so no shockwave this year for me, eh.

    I hope the Target branding on the cab portion is minimal (or none) because I could be into a deco like this on that mold. A branded trailer isn't as big a deal for me.

    I may be missing something, but I assume they couldn't or wouldn't use the Volvo Prime mold with this Target collaboration for whatever reason and opted for the second most modern semi truck that is also Optimus.
