    Hi, I'm a noob when it comes to Con Exclusives, but I want that Ravage. Do I have to be a member of Pulse Premium to get it and if not, when will become available for us plebs?

    Thanks.

    Pulse Premium members have a 1hour exclusivity window for the con exclusives. If it sells out in that window then it sells out. If there's any left then they'll open up to everyone else, but don't expect any restocks.

    Probably? Always a chance that doesn't happen. And after the last few years not sure I trust anyone other than Pulse anyway.

    A diecast G1 cassette and a heavily retooled Deluxe that potentially has more engineering than the pricepoint normally provides.

    If you don't want it, good for you. More opportunity for people like me to get one.

    "Ugh, who would want this?"

    "I-I mean if you aren't interested I'll gladly take it off your hands-"

    Yeah I'm always amused when someone comes in to a pages old thread of people excitedly talking about a new figure only to wonder out loud who's actually asking for it.

    The best was the Saber thread. The thing hit goal and days later people were still like "Who is this for?"

    Been away here from a while because I was on a holiday with friends.
    Lots of fun. Saw some real life cougars too.
    I thought those only existed in comedy shows and soap operas.
    Eh... You live an learn.

    Btw, I just reported your post, you disgusting bigot.

    Well the inconsistency is great for example only 2 weeks ago the cobra island baroness arrived in stock. Probably the most wanted figure of the line. As for ravage he has plenty of those and early stock.
    I'm happy to have it and it's worth the price.

    Small amounts of diecast on a G1 figure reissued to death, and a retooled Deluxe does not warrant Leader pricing. That doesn't add up. Price is likely inflated due to exclusivity and packaging with dioramas and such.

    People tend to forget that discussion board posts are more "thinking out loud" style. We're all just to throwing out our 2 cents into the ether. It's okay to not like/not buy something.

    You forgot your blue text? Anyway, I've reported your post for accusing me of something disgusting without any warrant, so I hope your joke or whatever was worth it.

    Hopefully only a little bit more time until we can verify Laser Prime has this on his trailer: 144414_OptimusLaser_Truck_TrailerDetail.jpeg

    I recall someone saying that Leader class toys are now going to have closed packaging like Commander & Titan classes; if this mural isn't splayed across the front of the box in hand-painted glory, what's the point?

    In all seriousness, they're finally convincing me to get an OP; I was perfectly happy with my reissue G1 OP, but if they're going put out G2, then I'm obligated to get it.

    Oh good god I sincerely hope not. I love Laser Optimus Prime's design, but not everything about that original toy needs to be replicated. No no.

    If they actually go through the effort to recreate the art on the tanker they'll get bonus points.

    Not a fan of Ravage depicted as a Russian circus bear.
    that aside, this set is pretty cool, for the art, cassette sleeve, and general fan-pleasing.
