    Yep, though it's between seasons currently. The next season will be the last one

    GAH now that's all I can think about!

    Like a YELLOW VW Beetle?

    Right!

    It's not bad, sure they have a season or so you might forget what happened but if you are the last Netflix subscriber it will "give you something to watch."

    I am still waiting for K.I.T.T.

    I am interested in this one more than most of the SDCC 23 reveals.

    Even though I don’t know anything about Strangers Things.

    A Decepticon Demodog would be badass.

    I love stranger things, but this ain’t it chief. The figure looks great, but it’s such a weird choice for a crossover. If it didn’t say stranger things on the box you’d have no way of telling what it’s supposed to be from

    Unless you're a fan of Stranger Things. Which is who this is for.

    Yeah, wouldn’t the cop’s truck have been more iconic?

    Maybe Chevy wasn't interested. Or maybe that's next. Or maybe Netflix specified the pizza van.

    Or maybe they wanted the pizza van because it's more relevant with the current season and has the fun pizza themed accessories.

    Earthrise Hoist / Trailbreaker mold can be used for this.

    Don't care about Stranger Things at all, but that's a mighty nice lookin van right there I tell you what. Bot mode chest is kind of hollow but I guess the more creative types out there could create some sort of insert where it looks like the characters from the show are operating the bot.

    ~edit~
    Wait a sec is this a retool/shared engineering of SS 86 Ironhide?

    No. It's borrowing elements but it's mostly new.

    Ok, I'm a Stranger Things fan and this looks quite good. Definitely buying it, but I might wait for a sale. $45 is a bit much. I waited on the first JP set, got it for half off. I bet this one hits $30 within 6 months.

    I'm sorry to break this to you, but the show will be 40 years old next year.

    This team executes vehicles modes so well when they're constrained by a license. I wish they'd try and make mainline Legacy vehicle modes look this good.

    This toy looks miles ahead of any version of Ironhide we've had in the last few years. I would be head over heels for an Ironhide and Ratchet retool out of this. They'd look so good with Bumblebee and VNR Optimus:

    (I know these don't follow the tooling layout, sssh.)

    Shares engineering with Siege Ironhide (not SS86) but shares no parts.

    Nah, I'm pretty sure it's just another CW Silverbolt retool
