    London toy fair is in a few weeks. Hasbro is scheduled to be there. Maybe we’ll finally see the last ones revealed in non-blue prototype colors.

    If that's the case. I would laugh if they made a HFTD Payload redeco of Long Haul of all things.

    Wer never see images from London Toy Fair. New York Toy Fair is when public reveals happen, everything before that is completely closed to the public, no images allowed.

    The face on my mixer is missing the fold out parts :( ((((((((((

    Would hasbro support be able to send me those? Their online chat is also only open from 9-1, that's dumb.

    Edit: swapped it for the last one at my Wally World

    I would hope that’s in their plans as it’s an easy repaint.. Ditto for Demolishor from Scavenger.

    Kinda a shame that they couldn't do interesting toy & game based redecoes. Like they could make have millage with all those constructicon molds. They could even make a Mixmaster with that one RPM deco that looked like Armada Hoist.

    And that studio series Sideswipe mold is begging to have a DOTM Darksteel retool.

    Well, if I skip typical Bayformers nonsence and reusing robot designs, there are two characters sharing same mold, just have different color.

    For me, Rampage is yellow and Skipjack is red. Rampage is Devastator's leg. Seems like this could be modern version of FIRRIB.

    After all these years of redecos and remolds, I grab only onscreen stuff. Thundercracker from Studio Series was easy pass.

    Finally ordered Mixmaster and Scavenger. Had to seperate the orders though cause I didn't want Scavenger's delays shooting up the time for the other dude

    I'm surprised Scavenger is selling way better than Shockwave. I guess people want to complete Devastator fast.

    I really think it also has to do with their movie appearances. Scavenger (well, Demolishor) had such an iconic scene in ROTF in addition to being a part of Devastator. Shockwave just stood around, got (mostly) beaten by humans and didn't even transform.

    I'm not sure I necessarily agree with this, since Shockwave is one of the iconic characters of the brand and despite having an unfortunately small role in DOTM, most people did like his design. I really do think it's the Devastator angle - at this point people have been buying Constructicons for about 10 months so they cannot afford to miss out on one now. Especially when retail is not always well-stocked, they need to grab this guy as soon as they have the chance.

    I don't deny that Transformers fans love him. However, most casual fans would be more likely to purchase toys of chatacters they remember from the movies.

    I'm a huge Transformers fan myself, but my collecting style is also very influenced by the character's role in the media they appear in. I'd be far more tempted to buy a crap toy of one of my favorite characters than a good toy of a character that got 2 minutes of screentime. I find that the emotional investment in the character is paramount in allowing me to appreciate the toy for far longer.
