    Are the rumors about Earth-Mode Soundblaster confirmed?

    Hopefully there’s a reveal soon that clears things up because its crazy not only are they on shelves before announcement (running them, eh?) people also don’t even understand what goes where. Insanity.

    Tigatron has apparently got some official images out from the Amazon thread. My wishlist preorders show official pics and arrival date for Tuesday for Waspinator, Tigatron, Shadow Panther, Slammer, and Pipes, so we'll see.
    Got a meeting tomorrow going on at 1. Not sure what's more stressful, that Terrorsaur gets pushed to then or the idea that Blaster gets revealed then.

    Terrorsaur's way more stressful. What was I even thinking. Either way, I think I might need to excuse myself for a "pit stop" at 1:00...

    I know it's for toy accuracy but I really hate how the sword looks with the blade perpendicular to the hilt like that. I'm glad they said you'll be able to rotate it to look more usable.

    I believe we actually have 2 Blaster listings, one for Kingdom and one for Legacy. Also, our confirmation for Wave 5 is, if I had to guess, the cases being shipped with half Shadow Panther and Waspinator and half Tracks and Scorponok (might be someone else, can't remember), since originally the case was going to be half Pipes/Slammer as well. If I had to guess, the latter two are probably in Wave 5 now with a new half wave of repacks, with Blaster being the Voyager, since that's where we've thought he was for a while now.

    Also, my guess is, like others have said, that we'll see Wave 4 and 5 revealed tomorrow after Terrorsaur today, since the amount of new figures is enough to be one normal wave anyway, then we'll see Wave 1 of Legacy at Pulsecon like we saw Wave 1 of Kingdom at Pulsecon last year. It'd also explain why Pulsecon's a month later this year, it gives this delayed Wave 4/5 reveal (As well as the Golden Disk stuff) time to breathe.

    Fixed.

    Seriously, you have to rotate it to make it usable, not just to make it look like if it was.

    Yeah, I just watched all of Beast Wars for the first time and realized it. I could see mold reused in a new netflix line. Minor remold, include the staff. Dinomus does seem much less liekly, but perhaps there's something in the pipeline? Surely, considering the rest of the art is recycled, they didn't just make that one piece of art?

    Terrorsaur looks pretty cool. Knew I was getting it, but happier now.

    He looks far better than if someone told me he was an Airazor retool.

    Well the beast mode is rough, but he looks far better than I was anticipating. The rumors made it seem the figure was going to be a bit of a disaster.

    I wonder if they shoulda done something close to TFA Swoop where the arms outline the wings. Woulda given them a reason to put the wings on the arms and cleaned the bird body up a bit

    I mean, I don't REALLY expect aerodynamic alt-modes because all the stuff has to go SOMEWHERE

    they can barely make aerodynamic jets and planes (and even that's being a bit generous since 9 times out of 10 they have entire robots hanging out under them), if you're expecting beasts to be any different you crazy, this is what's to be expected out of a Terrorsaur alt mode.

    As I said before, this is basically a brand new figure that uses (some) of Airazor's engineering. Is a very commendable effort.

    Sure, it might be a little short and the beast mode might not be the best (then again, did you really expect more from it?) but aside from that, this is easily the best Terrorsaur figure ever.

    I’m so mad. I saw it was posted here 18 minutes later, and it’s already sold out. If anyone bought an extra and is willing to sell it at a non bullshit price please hit me up I need the little dude.
