    so the remaining 4 packs are Botropolis, Biosfera, Micron, and Dominus

    If I can go by Transformers Wiki and make an educated guess

    Botropolis : Reptron(Kingdom Dinobot Repaint), Silvertron(Runamuck Repaint)

    Biosfera : Beastwars Characters because its believed to be the planet the Beast Wars characters came from in IDW. 

    Micron : Micromasters set. Either two more bases turned bots, or a bunch of micromasters

    Dominus : Can only find Dominus Ambus or Dominus Trannis. Which tells me an Astrotrain Repaint will be involved.

    No guarantees that will work, and no guarantees that will happen if you don't. My coneheads came in their original brown box and that box was inside another box, and I didn't request gift shipping. My AUOP came inside another box too, and I don't even have Prime (I always use the "we'll get it there eventually" free shipping). I know we'd like to think there's something we can do to stop this from happening, and it's probably worth a shot, but there's no real guarantee.

    Hrrm, okay then, was not aware of that. It does appear as if something has changed recently, though... perhaps John Warden leaving? Hasbro certainly did not make stuff like the only Bumblebee, Ratchet etc. in a line exclusive before.

    warden is a designer not an executive or board member. decisions like this have never been his level and this honestly isn’t a new concept for hasbro. Stars wars, Disney, marvel a lot of their product have and store exclusives. Of anything. Transformers is merely catching up with all the other franchises and it’s not just hasbro. Mattel, neca, Bandai etc have all had exclusives for certain chains forever

    I have the Funpub one, could get this one as the other one and find a name for her...

    Edit: Some names based on medical terms for bots like these

    Respirator
    Ironlung
    Syringe
    Needles
    Trauma
    Defibrilator
    Resucitator
    Puncture
    Fracture
    Prosthetic

    And my favorites (would work awesome for Decepticon Medics)

    Euthanasia
    Bodybag

    (Just imagined these two with red eyes and a SG Ratchet colorscheme)

    Regarding other possible packs... I just don’t want this line to end without a Glyph, Hauler, and Detritus. They can stick ‘em in whatever subline or store exclusive pack they want, I just want them to be produced.

    Oh and Road Rage too, if the Tracks rumor holds up.

    Against all odds based on my thoughts on Earthrise Ironhide, I actually dig Ratchet! The white shoulders on the door help, though the side windows are still a bit... bleh.

    Lifeline is just a repaint but I dig her. They'd make a good medic squad alongside Red Alert.

    It's already gone though and it's not even on Amazon AU! I cannot stress enough how sad I am right now :(

    I think that in the future the $40 two-packs will be the norm for finding deluxes and core will sort of replace both deluxes and the micromasters,battlematers,legends, etc.

    What is with this response? Is there some kind of Sunbow-purist attitude in regards to Ratchet's head?

    ...And although I hate to be a stickler, WFC went FIBRIR so it's hardly a cartoon-centric line. In fact, I'm pretty sure Red Alert and Ratchet are the only characters that went for a more specifically cartoon colourscheme than usual. Impactor flat-out had two alternate heads to represent his two different comicbook appearances.

    Depending on what the other Odysseys are, I wonder if any of them will include new molds instead of repaints and retools.

    I wouldn’t assume any Kingdom repaints, as this sublime specifically says Earthrise. It’s not impossible, but not probable to have Kingdom figures.
