I think those may be some of Astrotrains guns?
They look like astrotrains yeah.
Agreed, actually. Depending on how the torso gap looks in person he may be the crown jewel of Earthrise and the definitive Starsream (yes, I think he's even better than Prime whose vehicle front is slightly wonky).
Well the gear is from the new parts bot & the guns are either his or astrotrains
What\'s the alt mode on the classics Megs?
I disagree. The Siege mold has slim, sleek and dynamic proportions, which I love, and this new one is clunky and boxy as hell. The legs in particular are a mess now (and those hollow feet...), and looks perfect before. I also hate how elongated the new torso is, and it seems exceptionally hollow like the Classics toy.
The robot mode on the Siege one was absolutely perfect to me, and this is a huge downgrade in my eyes. The F-15 transformation may be more important to me than the Tetrajet, but at least Siege made Tetrajet's look cool, whereas I never cared for how goofy the Cybertronian forms in the first episode of G1 looked.
All the limbs are literally rectangles. There’s nothing dynamic about it. It was just squares on squares, which is fine, but it’s no superior to this one proportionally.
If anything, the fact that the lower legs are noticeably chunkier than the things makes Earthrise Screamer more dynamic.
The knee joints on the new one stick out so far, whereas the Siege one's have less parts jutting out and everything transitions smoothly, and the torso is much boxier and longer. The feet on the Siege one are also rounded, and not hollow, and look like they're built for speed. The new ones are very flat, angular and hollow, which looks worse to me.
I prefer the shorter torso and longer legs, which is also why I like Hajime Katoki's Gundam designs, and it's also done for comic book characters as well to give them a "larger than life" look. Having a longer torso throws off the proportions of the new Starscream to me, and makes him look a bit more "stumpy".
Wait, has the new Megs been revealed?
No, just lots of wishful thinking.
I thought that was him next to Optimus? With the 80's shading/coloring? Are those just place holders?
That's the Siege 35th Anniversary Walmart exclusive.
It's not part of Eathrise.
Tank, it's just the siege mold being reused.
It looks like this is the rest of Hasbro’s con schedule for 2019. It’s from the Star Wars panel and we had seen a small amount of reveals at previous ones they’ve been to. It’s weird some of these are happening around the same time.
MCM London 10/25-27
Comic Con Paris 10/25-27
Lucca Italy 10/30-11/3
Manga Barcelona 10/31-11/3

German Comic Con 12/7-8
I can’t think of anything else US related. Hopefully see a few more Earthrise reveals at these then that should be it til Toy Fair 2020 unless we get retailer leaks.
I wonder how big that Cliffjumper will be compaired to Titans Bumblebee.
Aw come on, you are already thinking of the next reveals?
So assuming this is the 2nd phase of the Cybertron trilogy, 1st Seige and now Earthrise, any mention the 3rd stage? Combiners or Unicron saga-ish?
There’s no mention, they only told us about EarthRise 4 days ago, but a lot of us assume it will be movie and season 3 characters.
We've just seen all of wave 1, I think the next wave of studio series is more likely for these events but it hasn't been that long since the last of those reveals either so who knows what they'll do. :s
Well classics megs was that bright coloured revolver looking nerf rip off.
But the one on display is the 35th anniversary cell shaded repaint of Siege megs.
