My Lcs tells me they may be up for preorder tomorrow.
Huh, no mention/release info of ROTF Sideswipe... okay. I had hoped he would be in the same Wave with BB and Jolt.
He's in the next wave, alongside the 86 Sweep
Grindor is already out at retail. The other 3 we knew about listings, and since this bee is the same as the buzzworthy one and thrust is mostly a repaint, Jolt would've been the only surprise. Imo
Yeah, how could anyone forget him getting ready to throw down with the US Army at NEST HQ after the President exiles the Autobota from Earth.
"Guys, we hear your complaints about Target exclusives, so here's a new Thrust."
"That's Ramjet, and it's in G2 colors! That's not what we were complaining about at all!"
"Ohhhhh, ok, we've taken your notes back to the drawing board and, well, here's a new Thrust."
"That's from the Bumblebee movie line and he's in Armada Thrust's colors!"
*Facepalm* "Dang it, um, what should we do? Should we make it a Target-exclusive too? Wait, no! Fight those instincts! Just tell them it was always intended for the movie line. But what to do next...?"
Next time, on Thrust Theater...
"Alright, we definitely have it this time. A G1-inspired Thrust in the Generations line that's not a Target exclusive."
"Is that... is that a twenty-dollar Kreon?!"
Its not stolen because Hasbro rents the factories services and uses the factories raw materials. If Hasbro pays for 50,000 Jolts, then thats what they get in shipping crates. Any test copies or extras are owned by the factory who owns the raw materials. Hasbro doesnt care because operating in countries where they can sue would not be profitable.
Flash forward to 2023
“So uhh Hasbro, there’s that nice SS Breakaway you made. Any chance we could get a Thrust repaint?”
No, we also know about Grindor because he's already out at US retail right now, we know about Thrust because he was released at Toys"R"Us in the Philippines, and we know about Bumblebee and Jolt from the Korean government product safety website.
so since Grindors' out the rest of these should drop at retail any day now...
So... its nice to have an announcement out but why announce without setting up pre-orders?
I'm confident I'll find plenty of BB and Jolt around here but leader classes tend to hop off shelves awfully quickly around my area and I'd like to at least secure an order on Grindor.
Hands... grindor gots hands... hands that have wrist swivel and and a dirty half assed paint job
I'm pretty sure that's not how it works. Like, at all.
Preorders coukd go up tomorrow. If my Lcs can get them then everywhere should in theory.
And also, it's Takara that contracts the factories for TF, not Hasbro.
For real??? Dang was gunna go grab him today. Forgot my wallet yesterday so hid him to pick up today lol. Maybe I should wait on the supposed MPM next year...
So what wave do Sideswipe and the Sweep belong to then?
Also any preorders yet or is this gonna be another Core Soundwave type of thing where there’s no preorders.
You forgot about Jolt combining Optimus Prime with the corpse of Jetfire?
Always thought it was a bizarre shot of Optimus crawling, so that's why I 'memba.
I wonder if this means we could see a reveal of Kingdom Wave 4 around this week then if us finally seeing the next wave of SS here is any indication.
