    It’s funny. I want the 15th 5 pack. But the only figure I really plan on using from it in my display is Jazz. Because there is a better Optimus, Ratchet, Bumblebee, and Ironhide(I still prefer the deluxe).


    It was literally just called “Dark Sentinel Prime”

    Thanks! Definitely gonna try your ideas and suggestions and if I got any questions I will for sure ask. While it may take a bit to get some current stuff done I will be sure to give Soundwave the paintapps he deserves. Such an amazing figure screwed up by lack of paint

    So, I thought I had canceled my Pulse pre-order for the 15th anniversary pack. Turns out I had accidentally ordered 2 of them, and I have now been charged $170 for one of them…. At the worst possible time.


    Any interest I had in it is now replaced with frustration.

    So it seems some in the UK are getting 86 Ironhide in hand who is apart of wave 4 so I wonder how long that happens for the others in the wave?

    It's only InDemand at the moment, they seem to get things a few weeks early than retail. So hopefully Hot Rod and co. show up around Halloween time.

    BluJayWarrior's QC Nightmare Part 2: Transformation Boogaloo

    the pain continues as I tried to transform the 5 pack

    Optimus actually transforms fine, except for the locked legs. need to loosen them.

    Ratchet's side panel won't close. It's colliding with the arm, and so far nudging things around doesn't seem to change anything. Roof rack doesn't plug in but that's fairly minor, it still sits pretty flush.

    Bumblebee has a tab that won't tab and the hood panels refuse to sit flush.

    Ironhide is the absolute worst. The tabs under the truck refuse to line up properly as a result everything else is also out of alignment and I can't close him up at all. A whole disaster.

    And then there's Jazz, still being the perfect little chad he is.

    This 15th Anniversary pack has been a very disappointing experience with only 1 out of 5 with no major flaws. Definitely getting a replacement set.

    These two bozos still have an outstanding alt mode.

    Not Laserbeak but works for a temporary replacement.

    One of my favourite parts about this guy is that he feels much better in hand compared to some of the other deluxes I have like Jolt and ROTF Sideswipe. This Soundwave was used and the person I got it from also got him used from 2019. After this guy went from Sweden to here with nothing but simple bubble wrap. No loose joint or cracks, only paint scuffs which is fine considering by the end of the year this guy will be 3 years old. He also just feels denser with the clear used feels like nothing compared to something like my ROTF Sideswipe's backpack. He is also just heavier

    Now have him in a lamppost fan mode
