    Just rushed through the presentation. Disgusting how they presented the toys...
    Just like they were on drugs especially the (put in your swearing here) which showed the 699$ Optimus.
    No Studio Series. Big dissappointment...

    Ugh, not feeling the look of the Sentinel as much as I was before. It looks like that ugly, shiny, dark plastic used on the old one. I much preferred the muted color of what was shown early on.

    Why does Tracks wear his serial number on his shin?

    Ahh! Wave 4 then for Starscream. Glad Cyclonus is getting another run, sounds like he's hard to get.

    Just to clarify, wave three is to be released in July, but Hasbro pulse is releasing them in September?

    Yeah, his car mode proportions are a little cartoon-y (kind of reminds me of AOE Crosshairs :puke: ), but I wanted a Tracks figure that looks like a Corvette, and they did it. And I wouldn't be surprised if he shares engineering with the Battlechargers, considering they always transformed similarly.

    That's going to be a stretch goal alt head for human-sized HasLab Galactus.

    On a serious note, unless they give us an official name... the Comboner needs to have a "Mark" pun name.

    For the fossilizer combiner, you could always use Wing Finger, Tricranius and Transmutate, who are all Maximals

    Most likely a placeholder date, my preorders from pulse have been delivered to me earlier then the date they show on the product page.

    They very often ship things before those estimated release dates. I think it's more them just covering their asses incase something goes wrong.

    Most of the G1 stuff, Tracks and Core Soundwave aside, we've already seen, so I'll only voice my opinions on the newest of those reveals: Tracks looks great! A continuation of the Mini-Masterpiece trend and probably the closest translation of the animation model we'll ever get at that budget. Core class Soundwave looks fine, but he's not really something I'm interested in.

    Rhinox looks really good, not going to lie. He's appropriately chunky and imposing and by no means a bad pick for those who missed the Thrilling 30 release, but personally I think I'm going to stick with the old toy, and I'd be lying if I said the spring-loaded Chainguns of Doom wasn't a pretty big reason why. Hasbro just doesn't do spring loaded weapons anymore. They haven't since 2015. That, and the fact that the chest appears to be a piece of fake kibble, something T30 Rhinox never had to worry about. This figure is definitely the more screen-accurate between the two, so if that's a major sticking point for you then this is the toy you want, but I figure T30 Rhinox is close enough by my standards, plus he scales well with all the Kingdom figures I have so far.

    The Fossilizers are where this really shines. Dracodon's eye-searing neon green reminds me of BWII Diver, and I am here for it. Also the implication that he's radioactive has all kinds of horrifying implications and only serves to make Maximal command look even more monstrous. Tricranius is positively gorgeous with their volcanic deco, and the pink blast effects are a perfect match for Kingdom BW Megatron, so I'm absolutely sold on that one already. And the fossilizer that absolutely steals the show is Wingfinger. A Maximal Ninja with boomerangs that can combine to form a bow and arrow that turns into a skeletal pteranodon?? I'm sorry, but if you hate this all I can tell you is you hate fun. Man, I am so glad I was on board with the Fossilizers from the word "go," this is the best take on the weaponizer gimmick far and away.

    Speaking of the TF releases, I mostly liked what I saw. I knew I was already in on Ark Bot but him having the golden disks just solidified that choice. Most everything else is a buy...except for that $700. It's amazing but I don't need an automated interactive Optimus quite that badly. I do like the Accessory Pack set but I have to admit, I'm a bit disappointed it's all blast effects and not some more missing accessories like Cheetor's gut gun.

    THIS is the question I was asking myself when they revealed Rhinox. I already have the T30 version and while Kingdom Rhinox looks ok, I don't know if it's better than T30. Especially looking at Kingdom's chain guns. But still not a version for those that missed the T30 version.

    One other disappointment was not seeing any detail of what's in that upcoming Target exclusive Kingdom 4 pack. But I did notice they hardly mentioned any exclusives outside of Pulse ones. I guess it's not surprising since store exclusives have been a sore subject as of late.
