    I wonder how will they make a proper Wreck-Gar this time...
    If Hasbro wants to prolong SS86 line, they need to make almost all characters appeared on the film.
    And it's gonna be a long long list.

    Will they finally release a Leader Class OP with Trailer that is accurate to the film?
    Or skip it because G1 accuracy design is "reserved" for masterpiece line?
    For sure they will not make a Megatron coz he's a GUN in the film.

    I don't mind them repacking Netflix WFC BB and Soundwave under SS86 line.
    You gotta think how different SS86 Arcee if ever they make it compared to ER Arcee.

    I doubt they’ll bring in characters like Arcee, Ultra Magnus, Soundwave, etc... in the ss86 line, since those characters got some accurate figures this year and next year.

    Ok, while I agree PrimeVsPrime gets “questionably obtained” products, he is only verbal if he doesn’t like a figure. He handles them well, and in my opinion, his videos FAR outclass TonTon’s. In fact, he seems to go out of his way to find positives about figures, even when they’re bad. I understand if you don’t like the way he gets his figures, but his reviews are MILES better than TonTon’s.

    I’m guessing Gnaw and Wreck-Gar will be in Wave 2. With WFC covering a lot of the cast already there aren’t many left to do. They might get around to those characters in the future, but for now I’d like them to do characters they haven’t done yet.

    Blitzwing and the Insecticons
    The other Dinobots, Blaster, The Cassettes, Perceptor, Brawn, and if you really want to scratch the bottom of the barrel Windcharger and maybe Gears. I really want all 18 of the Ark Crew ok?

    I know the leakers said there is currently no plans for a few of these, but I figure SS86 will get to them eventually. Just need to be patient as we get through Covid.

    To use the serial number is not really smart.

    Did you see how many numbers has the serial number? Jazz will need a couple of doors for the entire number.

    It is not hard to understand how the number 14 is related to the number 4 and what is the reference implied. Not a big deal here.

    I think someone said Blitzwing was pretty much one that won’t get a figure next year. But they also said there’s plan to make him for 2022 or 2023, other than that it seems like we’re going to get everyone from the 86 movie.

    Was just checking Pulse this morning and really the only figure you can still pre-order is Blurr. I'm gonna get almost all of them except for Jazz. Just something about the way he looks that bothers me with having his doors not peaking out from each side. I'm gonna have to watch several reviews to really decide whether I want him. I currently have Grimlock and scourge on order from Pulse for the SS 86' line so far. I'm gonna just wait longer to get the others but Hot-Rod and Kup will just have to wait a little longer.

    Jazz, Kup, Blurr and Scourge are still available for preorder on Amazon. Grimlock and Hot Rod are unavailable.

    Keep in mind that all SS86 have being in and out, it is likely to see new pre-orders for Grimlock and Hot Rod soon.

    2021 will be an expensive year!

    For such a "hated" character, the "rodster" sure was sold out fast! Grimlock handsdown equally awesome!

    Because fans are not a homogenous mass. Some fans think that, because they toys came first, that this is what the characters should look like. Others, like me, prefer the streamlined versions of the media and always dreamt of having toys that looked like the idealized versions. Both want to be happy.

    And you analized this how?

    No they haven't, what's been said is that G1 Blitzwing will not be getting a figure before 2022, according to @Pixelmaster, that's not the same thing as G1 Blitzwing is getting a figure in 2022 or 2023.

    Is it not too hard to understand how corny and stupid the number 14's relation to Jazz is ?

    Just because Hasbro makes a decision, doesnt mean I have to embrace it with the masses of fans who think its cute and quirky.

    It's a free country. Live and let live. But don't let that number distract you from appreciating the product, or you can just walk away.

    I never said I didnt appreciate the product. Im just not afraid to call out the flaws. That seems to irk some collectors on here who have more loyalty to company decisions than to the original TF fiction itself.

    Who ever said they didn't have flaws?o_O 

    MP44 had finicky knees. MP47 breaks (?) apart under the gaze of a stare. MP-3 v1 breaks up. MP5 got Cosmic rust and is crispy. MP9 hates to be stared at etc etc etc.

    Reminds me of a carousel. Same track/axis, around and around and around and around and around.......

    Love everything about this Jazz except for the feet. It's like the designers of ER Ironhide/Ratchet were 99% complete with their project just gave up to go to happy hour on the Friday before a holiday weekend.

    Still going to get it since it's an improvement over my PotP Jazz.
