    Lol wasn't Mega supposed to be today's Voyager class? and I'm pretty sure Rattrap was basic class at the time.

    It's had better come with better paint apps and blast effects for $44,000.

    Can I donate a dollar to have this thread stop rehashing the spoiler box contents?

    A lot of smart people in this thread. So there really isn't any places to pre order the vintage BW toys in Canada?

    :D  True but if we're going down the road of evaluating punctuation and grammar, I think their posts were pretty comparable other than the capitalization.

    Not really. The first guy was misspelling every second word and was randomly capitalizing, while the second guy used proper sentences and full stops for dramatic effect, albeit with excessive swearing.

    Spoiler box is basically on point for a name since it\'s always been spoiled before it actually comes out XD

    That’s rich considering the behavior that was displayed back to me when I was kindly asking for a source.

    You know, before the actual childish behavior began. Nerds sometimes frustrate me

    Netflix wave 3 Spoiler Pack is Siege Megatron, most likely in T-Wrecks colors?

    Spoiler box has Decepticon emblem not Predacon but it has vines on it hinting jungle or beast theme, my guess is some kind of BW Megatron repaint but dossiers are Preds along with the traditional Preds so a Decepticon BW Megatron? I don't its a Decepticon repaint of Optimus or Ultra Magnus so it has to be one of those right?

    Id much prefer it to be Leader Class Galvatron with a weaponizer but thats wishful thinking in a better world

    I assume what happened is that they're reusing/recreating the back of Megatron's original box, text mostly included, but they swapped out the products for the ones they're actually selling right now (Cheetor & Rattrap). Which leads to a bit of a disconnect between text and product. It's not actually meant to literally mean that Cheetor and Rattrap are Megas now, it's just them paying homage to the original Megatron box.

    You can see the original also separated the products by "Ultra" and "Mega":

    Cheetor's packaging will likely still properly call him a DELUXE.
    Rattrap was a BASIC, so even if they had downgraded "mega" to "deluxe" on this box it wouldn't have been accurate for both of them. So they just left it alone, to be more authentic to the original box.

    Switched my order for Beast Wars reissues from WM to Pulse. Realized I’d like to keep them in package and there’s less likely to be any shenanigans when they get packed for shipping from Pulse than with WM.

    I've found that most of these Walmart exclusives are readily available (at least at first) in store anyway, and with them canceling PO's on the fly all over the place there's no reason to get too excited. But more power to those doing so.

    Perhaps that styling could be implying a merging of "g1" and beast aesthetics
    What if it were Seige Tank Megatron but repainted with something like Beast Megatron's colors
    It could double as an homage to G2 purple tank megatron

    Or maybe Beast Megatron painted in G1 colors?
