    because it was not done yet in G1, all others had a G1 reference in Japanese exclusive cartoons or other media
    They didn't created these planets for earthrise:

    - Headmasters / target masters came from planet MASTER in the headmasters cartoon
    - micromasters had their own planet in ZONE / later minicons got attached to micronus prime and had their own colony in the aligned stories
    - beasts usually come now from beast planet / animatros since the Cybertron / galaxy force cartoon (introducing concepts of colonies, used as well in IDW with colony Eukaris)

    Pretenders were introduced in Japanese market as regular transformers in disguise in the master force cartoon (as humans for Autobots, monsters for decepticon explaining the existence of mounters in earth myths) and then revisited very recently in POTP as Primes in disguise.... they are transformers from Cybertron or in disguise on Earth so no new planet for them

    I forgot to say they would look animal like in robot mode, but they would turn into vehicles.

    Well there's no genuine Pretender gimmick in the WFCT so far, so it's probably because of that.

    Maybe next trilogy.

    So here we have ANOTHER subline of MORE exclusives??

    Just stagger the releases over a longer period of time, hell, create a fourth chapter in the WFC series if you need to.

    Here I was hoping to quietly finish collecting this year... I guess I'll have parted with several bodily organs as well by 2021.

    Thanks, I’ll let you know if I’m thinking of getting it. Not sure yet, it depends on the price of the UK preorder and how quickly they go out of stock.

    This, there seems to be a staggering amount of exclusives being chucked out and its got to be a result of Corona virus at this point.

    There's been theories that with Earthrise (IN PARTICULAR) that it was meant to go on longer then the planned three waves and that all the figure we're getting in Kingdom were originally meant for Earthrise. Now its probably a LOT more complex but I read it on Dr.Lockdown's community tab one day and wondered if his theory holds weight.

    So would you guy be cool with a Modulator Cerebros? I ask because in the cartoon before he became a headmaster he had a base mode.

    Seriously it is getting more difficult as a collector outside of the USA to get items at half a decent price

    Hasbro released a "map" and at the bottom it showed 1, 2, 3 and 4.
    It showed the completed segment of the pieces from wave 1.
    Earthrise map

    So yes, there was supposed to be a Wave 4.

    I'm in the same boat. I'm trying to finish collecting this year but Hasbro keeps doing things. To add to things already being worse than they need to be, they keep making more exclusives pinching extra dollars off us residing outside the US! Will this get any easier?

    Chromia and Moonracer don't even transform the same nor do their backpacks fold the same way.

    Chromia and Nightbird are repaints of each other and you don't service your argument by posting that as your argument.

    Its like Hasbro can only put out so much product a year, and stores want their own exclusive repaints which is where Ratchet comes in.

    I mean, that’s fair and all, but Amazon is a global business, so the lack of availability overseas is a bit of a piss-take.

    Amazon itself is a global business, but they still need to work with the regional suppliers to get the job done. And if the regional suppliers aren't stepping up the game, then that's unfortunately the breaks.

    So, Amazon, the biggest webstore on the planet, decided to only ship this in the US. Yay. Sucks for the rest of us.
