    Junkions were made for the build-a-figure wave system IMHO. Imagine just swapping the BAF part with the main figure's part.

    Even from those fuzzphotos, Jazz and Grimlock look like they might be must-haves - that's pretty encouraging. Grimlock appears broadly similar to his MP version, which would definitely not be a bad thing.

    According to insiders, Hasbro considered doing a new G1 Devastator that would be individual releases, but they backed out on it (for now).

    They prob backed out cause of the CW reissue coming out soon cause lets face it if a SS version was released at the same time no one would buy the reissue

    No, they thought that the CW/ UW version was fine the time being and it would be dick move to remake it that quickly.

    What I think he means is, they felt the CW/UW version was fine and it didn't need to be redone, so they just decided to go ahead and reissue the CW one.

    Retailers ultimately determine how much copies of an exclusive they should order. You've got a problem with it being 300 copies? Take it to Bezos.

    Aren't the 300 copies the number for the Australian market only?

    Yet they've remade Kup, Hotrod, Scourge, Galvatron, etc, etc for this coming year, and they've all had figures even more recently than Devastator...

    Hasbro...you crazy. :lol

    If that is the case Snarl might show up in a line after Kingdom? I mean Galvatron and Cyclonus are in Kingdom for example, and looking back to titans return Doubledealer, Snapdragon and Apeface have finally shown up.

    A new Optimus also isn't likely simply because Dead Optimus was a repaint of ER Prime and is more or less a precursor to SS86

    we already have the whole kingdom line up. He’s not in it but I’m not believe the idea(rumor) snarl isn’t being made because “he’s in the movie only in animation errors”

    Is it wrong to love cartoon yellow chested Grimlock even though some part of my adult brain is telling me it is terrible in some way?

    We finally are getting justice for Jazz by the looks of things and blur looks pretty spot on too.

    It seems like the rest of society agrees “that nothing good will come from 2020/2021” and transformers fans will respond with “but?!!! Have you not seen the mainline releases?”

    Yeah, despite having been old enough to have been able to see it and seeing as I was a TF fan at the time for whatever reason I blanked out during that specific line, so seeing this is a whole new thing to me and I'm frightened.
