    I have these guys on preorder and they would be direct replacements for previous versions but I'm torn because we are getting a leader soundwave with minions? And the 40th megs.

    Anyone know if this will become more available/ reissued? Preorders sold out pretty much everywhere I buy from…

    Will the grey part turn yellow like this Netflix soundwave and earthrise negatron?

    Hahah. Yeah, I do believe that's one reason why people are so wary of this set.

    That's interesting to know - any recent ones, or would they be from the same era as the other figures that suffered from it?

    I've been lucky with it on the whole but none of my figures since 'the Covid years' (and the whole different factory / plastic mix reasons) have yellowed. Netflix Soundwave was by far the worst example. Netflix Megs had it a bit.

    That's why these are partly 'redemption figures' for me, to borrow a phrase used earlier in the thread - a chance to enjoy these figures properly again.

    Wow, that's some seriously great looking packaging. I did not expect it to look so striking.

    That said, quite a bizarre mix here. It seems to me this may be more of a "last shot" before these characters get their SS 86 upgrades. TakaraTomy loves to get one last use out of a mold before they know nobody will want it again based on an incoming superior version.

    You have a strange mix of much more show accurate (Megatron & Shockwave) and significantly not show accurate (Soundwave/Laserbeak). Not to mention the throne and scene doesn't really make sense for these characters all together.

    But ultimately any chance to get the characters with premium paint detail is appreciated.

    Kind of conflicted on whether I should cancel my preorder for this or not. Soundwave and especially Megatron while they look nice, they seem like they're already being invalidated by other and likely better upcoming options. Feel like the only reason to really get this is for Shockwave, but even then I wouldn't be surprised if we got an SS86 redeco next year like what we got with Blaster this year.

    Basically the same parts that yellowed on Shattered Glass Starscream and on Eartrise Megatron and Siege Megatron (Netflix release) have started to discolour.

    Got mine today. The tabs on Megatron's shoulder and leg joints are a bit loose on my copy, other joints are fine.

    I still don’t understand why Shockwave is there if it’s the bridge of the Nemesis from the first episode of the cartoon…

    They look great, thanks for sharing. Soundwave's blue is spot on, really nice.

    Going to make a 'Bon voyage' sign for Shockwave. Maybe something that docks into the gun barrel. Also throw in a stack of energon cubes and every Decepticon fembot I have hiding around the corner.
