    I have to wonder how effective of a strategy this even is. We're long past the days of needing to buy an Animated Arcee because a G1 version will totally never happen. The actually-on-screen BBM toys don't seem to be all that hot sellers as it is, which is hardly surprising considering the G1 designs they're emulating are also on toy shelves -- most who wanted an Arcee no doubt went for the "real" Arcee instead. Doubling down (tripling down, really, considering GE; quadrupling down if you count Siege) using designs nobody has even seen sounds like a disaster, really.

    I find it rather funny they couldn’t make the toy accurate to their own made up render.

    Different strokes for different folks. I’m less concerned with the character than the toy, so I have no problem double dipping on any given character.

    None of us represents all collectors, or even the majority, necessarily. This became super clear (Supah Cleah?) to me from the number of people calling for Missing Link to replace Masterpiece.

    Tbh I doubt it, going by the render of Sunstreaker it would not surprise me if those were just canon fodder bots that they want to turn into supposed characters now and just create a hodge podge design. I'd rather they wait until these characters actually show up in the new movies with updated designs that look better than this.

    I would personally want the AOE Dinobots and any other Bayverse character yet to be made over Rumble, Sunstreaker and whatever BB concept art they got planned to release. Megatron looks like the only thing that makes sense to do and looks like be belongs in those designs we saw in the movie.

    If the render was anyone other than Sunstreaker, I wouldn’t mind it so much, but in a movie where the characters are heavily inspired by G1, he stands out a lot. If it was a scrapped render from the WFC game, I wouldn’t bat an eye.

    Y’know, I saw that photo earlier, but haven’t handled those figures in a minute – I forgot how short they all are. Kingdom Steaker I had in my hand last night so it registered.

    I actually like my figures smaller, as long as they still have sufficient complexity – as this one does. It’s nice to see how well he’ll go with the others.

    Shockwave, probably. Skywarp is the wave 3 assortment.

    Leadfoot could be a tricky reissue with the Target logo all over him.

    I wouldn’t mind them taking off the logo and then I just get a toyhax reprolabel set. Sure it would be a bit more work but I think it would be worth it.

    The last 1 in "111" on the box being more spaced out than the first two is triggering my OCD.

    Would it really be that hard to release a Wreckers 3pack?

    You know, Buzzworthy Studio Series had such a great opportunity to do some cool stuff, but they shot themselves in the foot by doing shit like the 86 Battle Damage 2-packs and grey NEST repaints.
