    Why do they keep releasing simultaneously siege stuff when they are releasing earthrise as the new product? because they are still releasing new items that are siege.

    What items would those be? Siege is all out at retail. Nothing new is coming.

    It’d be helpful if you could cite sources

    Siege is all done with the exception of the TakaraTomy Mall exclusive release of Nemesis Prime next month.

    Some retailers just get waves late and some retailers get waves early.

    Some retailers may also decide not to order toys at all from waves or just order small stock that sells out.

    That would be nice if they would just continue it because this seems like a continuation or Re Imagining of G1, Which is what the fans like most, And if they could just figure out a way to continue it long after each of the chapters that would be great instead of starting new after war for cybertron.

    Well the storyline for Siege is that it's the final days on Cybertron and they're about to leave the planet. Earthrise is them bringing the war here, so for the toy narrative they are continuing the Siege storyline. But I agree it would be cool if they kept going with the Cybertron aesthetic for another wave or two. I prefer the 18 month cycle over the 12 month we've been getting.

    Especially since they didn't finish giving us the Cybertronian modes I was hoping for (Wheeljack, BB and Jazz)... I'm still hoping those show up somehow...

    Isn't there a new version of unicron coming out is that supposed to be part of the same story line and if so how will they do that?

    Just keep it going as one continuous story line Like the original Transformers

    The Unicron figure was funded by a Kickstarter/ GoFundMe type campaign last year and will be out next year. It's like, US$675, or something. They'll probably preview it again at cons later this year. Yes, it's part of the same story, and it'll be involved in whatever the third chapter of War for Cybertron is.

    Siege and Earthrise are NOT being released simultaneously. All of the Siege figures that are going to come out are out, though some like Battlemasters Singe and Rung are very hard to find. Siege is pretty much over. I just picked up the new Earthrise Optimus Prime, and Earthrise waves are hitting stores as we speak.

    If you did it that way, it would not only take several toylines to complete him, but the final figure would probably be a flimsy mess.

    And it would be no cheaper in the long run, plus you run the risk of not completing him.

    Well I mean it wasn't gonna get made at all unless 8000 people funded it and it got a good bit more backers than that.

    Also I believe the price ended up being $574 if you ordered it through Hasbro Pulse.\

    And this trilogy IS one continuous story. The toyline is just divided into three chapters because giving us the exact same style of figures with the exact same gimmicks would get stale quick.

    Unicron's final price depends on sales tax and shipping. $574.99 was the base price on Pulse. Other sites have an automatic upcharge.

    Man you'd need to buy like 30 or more figures to complete a Unicorn BAF, assuming it was the same size as the current one. That'd be a really sinister way to get people to buy all the figures in a line even if they didn't want to, just to get the pieces of the figure they really want.

    I mean unless, they'd do something like, "Here's Unicron's 10 inch leg that comes with Deluxe Class Cyclonus and Scourge, 80 dollars please", so they'd keep it to a minimum of 6 or 7 packages.

    Well you see, they still have stock and maybe unreleased stuff. Lines don't just abruptly end as soon as a new one begins. That would create a lot of literal waste. Waste in the landfills, waste of money, waste of resources. Lines flow into each other until the former eventually trickles out. Plus not all of us are done with Seige or have seen or gotten everything in whatever corner of the globe we live in as distribution rates aren't predictable.
