    i feel like a kingdom inferno repack is coming in Legacy because of the plastic thighs variant (some Infernos have red painted thighs, whilst others have plain plastic thighs.)

    yes. i sadly don't own one of either variant, but i've seen pictures of both.

    the only way to check while hes in packaging is to get light to hit the thighs in the right way. if the thighs barely reflects light, its the matt red paint. if they reflect the light perfectly its the naked red plastic.
    i can only assume the ones with painted thighs have red plastic underneath.

    To be fair, I'd say all of media in general.

    Also its not unheard of for Hasbro to make and drop plans on small and large-scale projects. Armada came from a dropped/retooled line. And there are many other planned figures that have got into the prototype stage and not finished/released.
    With figures leaked sometimes 2 or more years out it is bound to happen. After a certain point information leaked is reminiscent of the telephone game.

    hes the plane optimus jumps out of in the demolisher chase in rotf

    why dont they just repack ER soundwave in the case with blaster instead?

    imagine if hasbro watches these threads and makes changes to prove leakers wrong. its a wild thought but a funny one.




    im just gonna wait and see

    It doesn't work like that; Soundwave isn't a normal Voyager because he comes with 2 tapes, and they're probably gang-molded with him so they can't just release SW on his own, not to mention it's an exclusive and probably not a timed one.

    yeah, they could put the 2 rivals in the same case, each with a single cassette. blaster with eject, soundwave with laserbeak

    Yeah, I was excited too for a minute. :lol  The good news there is that they are likely wave one of the next line if they were being considered to be brought forward into Kingdom.

    He is. The tapes are gang-molded together, but not with Soundwave given they were individually released with different heads back in Siege.

    Exactly, and the new heads definitely can't be gangmolded with Soundwave cause their black plastic, and Soundwave doesn't have any black plastic.

    It's honestly like saying any of the other pack ins with the other Netflix figures are gangmolded with the voyager.

    keep in mind how we thought ER OP's trailer was gangmolded with him, until it turned out it wasn't

    i used to strongly argue there was no way we'd see a redeco of ER OP without the trailer because of that, and i turned out to be very wrong

    never firmly presume gangmolding unless it's straight-up obvious

    As a fellow Aussie, I feel your pain. Honestly, if Hasbro doesn't overhaul how they assign stock for each country and retailer, it won't be long before I call it quits.
