    It is siege megatron. The news article is wrong about that. To prove my point, the box says the figure transforms in 17 steps. Siege Megatron transforms in 17 steps, BW megs transforms in 27.

    Congrats to Walmart. While waiting and waiting for the Netflix Cheetor and Deep Cover to go live, I've had enough time to reflect and decide - I don't really need any of the plastic crack Walmart is shuffling today. I cancelled my other Netflix & Retro preorders. I'll save the money to be able to preorder Ark, Tracks, Galvatron through Chosen Prime or BBTS on April 9th. Thank you Walmart for saving me 100% of my money today.

    Got what I wanted out of these exclusives and that was only the Cheetor reissue.

    Ironic seeing how I stumbled upon this video on YouTube about a news bit from the 90s that featured Beast Wars and think would be quite relevant now.



    I was 3 with Scorponok as my first TF when this would have aired.

    It ended up on Pulse for a while, but has since sold out.

    You say that like a Walmart preorder means anything.

    And Masterpiece Megatron transforms in however many steps you get through before you give up and pose him in robot mode. (Sorry, couldn't resist, my arthritic hands are still salty.)

    I would prefer a T-Rex inside the spoiler box but a Translucent purple Megs with grid lines, changing into Galvatron would be awesome too :D

    Those are the deluxes I think when I click on it. However, they better be the $18.87 or I might have to cut back to just the Voyagers...
    Or else the scalpers stopped being nice.

    Might just pass on Netflix Cheetor for now cause I’m pretty sure Hasbro will do a redeco in his toy colors at some point. The blue on this one looks closer to the 10th anniversary and Universe one with that Snyder-cut Blue. This mold needs colors that pop in order to get me to buy another one.

    They giving us another Seige Megatron and more Tetrajet, Sideswipe redecos so they have the means of getting done right.

    I was able to preorder all the vintage stuff from Pulse. I'm glad, I didn't want to deal with Walmart's bs.

    I went there and the Cashgrab seeker pack is already sold out. Why did I pay $53 for that Pulse Premium membership again?

    Is there any difference between the Netflix Optimus Primal and Rattrap and the normal Kingdom release? They look identical to me.

    Yeah, I just noticed they were on Pulse. Much more reliable to do it there. Unfortunately Cheetor is already sold out, but I own a Tigatron so it’s no big loss. I’m just kvetching about Walmart’s poor fulfillment record more for the lols.

    Mega used to be one of the Beast Wars size classes (roughly Voyager ish), but neither of those figures is a Mega...
