    How have I never seen that Scrounge before?! Actually not a bad attempt.

    Fused Megs/Ratchet is a great suggestion btw. For me a line like this should really play to their strengths, which is non-transforming characters of all kinds, of which there are plenty!
    I'd totally forgotten about Impactor, although he's obviously the Netflix show version (which raises the question of who decided to bring that character back, the tv writers or Hasbro?). But at least it proves they can do it when they want, which is nice to know. Heck, if there were actual accurate transforming mainline toys of guys like Straxus and even Xaaron I'd much rather have those than just action figure versions.

    Which brings us back round to Pretenders, Action Masters etc I guess.

    Some excellent frickin idea here! Slizardo and skuxxoid two pack! Josh mentioned Orion pax in that fwoosh vid - I could totally see that happening. Given alligatorcon as a marker, I wonder how deep they’d get? I’d love some of the ancient generics from the toon (eg cosmic rust guy etc), though that’s probably too far. I could see night bird at some point. And if they did the human toon characters, maybe ginrai or metalhawk? Again, maybe too far.

    Would be great to get some idw comic only chars following tarn too - Aerleion, barbarian galvy, nickel etc.

    But yeah, UK comics chars would be amazing. Much as I like Xaaron, his design is maybe not the most interesting for toy form though? Make him metallic painted perhaps? I could see a blaster coming with a marvel head and scrounge. But if they were going really deep I’d love Flame, or impactor with zombie swap out parts. Centurion? Or (I mean, never gonna happen, but I’d love it) megadeath?! Big red?! Weird gears from ‘there shall come a leader’? The man of iron’ bot?! I’d love all that. And happily take weird comic repaints of gold Megatron/purple soundwave etc... ok gonna stop here as I’m starting to froth at the mouth.

    In an interview with The Fwoosh mostly about the Ultimates Party Van, Brian Flynn showed off some test shots from Transformers Ultimates Wave 1. The link should go to the TF talk time, around 53 minutes in. He goes through a lot of the nuts and bolts of making them and is kind of interesting. Like Banzai-Tron has 7 different types of plastic in it.

    He said Transformers Wave 1 originally scheduled for March, it's on or ahead of schedule but probably won't ship before CNY.

    March ETA has been known for a while. What I'm relieved with is that they are not being delayed anymore (so far).

    I have more concern about the Thundercats actually.

    +1, these aren't what were shown before. Plastic colors (and textures! blows my mind there's like a half dozen different types in these!) are different from the gray-copy models from earlier in the year.

    Hoping for a Wave 3 reveal soon, then we get into unknown territory for a potential Wave 4...

    He gave an update in the video too on them, I think he said Wave 4 is nice and on track, but Wave 2 (at a different factory) may be coming in on the wire before CNY.

    I read too quickly and thought it said that it'd be delayed from March until the New Year, as in Jan 2023...

    Feb/March '22 doesn't sound too bad at all!

    Ultimates! Series Optimus Prime test shots have arrived. These figures are amazing. We’ve still got a ways to go in the process, but this figure is great. Plus, he’s got an ill crossover! The test shots are sent in material and mold changes with corresponding colors. In this case the black is ABS, the being is PVC, the medium gray is a different PVC durometer, the charcoal gray is a nylon blend. There is still a lot of work on the finesse of these figures, but, we are getting very close!

    Much as I like super7 and ‘action masters’ I do wish these had more articulation. Totally get that they preference sculpt and a particular look, but op in particular looks like he’ll be pretty restricted in some key joints. The hip skirts on those sunbow models are always going to be an engineering challenge if you don’t want to get creative with cuts though.
    Starscream is the one I’m most looking forward to from this wave I think.

    Tarn looks really, really good!

    And thus do I continue my tradition of ordering only one from the wave.
