    The plastic is a different colour. But when you say the same plastic, that plastic is used on most transformers. So it’s just luck of the draw which ones have the yellowing mix, there’s really no way to tell straight up unless it’s yellowed out of the box

    I was afraid of the international shipping costs on this, I ended up ordering from a domestic shop to be safe. Normally I get to get TT product from overseas to get it sooner, but not this time. Easy for me in the US with Pulse though.

    Found these on ebay and thought I'd post them here too if that was okay.

    This looks really cool and I love how they made a new turret that can used for tank mode and on his back. With the height extension piece they also made tank tread fillers to help fill that extra space. Unfortunately you have to buy the leg fillers separately but still pretty awesome!!!!
    (Now if it came in regular ER colors that would be great!)

    I got notified today that my set has left the building... The decepticons set is coming my way. I'm excited.

    Just got my set in and Megatron is missing his shield / tank gap filler. Should I even bother contacting Hasbro over this since it’s an import?

    Edit: It’s from Pulse, just not sure if they can do anything about a Takara item missing something.

    All Transformers use that nylon. Every single one. Transformers toys don't work without it.

    I do enjoy how Shockwave looks with his previous versions of the mold. Makes both look like monochromatic duplicates he could create in devastation just in different shades 20240511_173923.jpg

    Got in my set today from Hasbro Pulse! You gotta peel back the layers to get to the goods :)

    I don't have an Earthrise Megatron for comparison but here's a Netflix WFC Megatron (with toyhax forehead and chest stickers applied).

    Compared with Netflix WFC Soundwave. I like the silver paint over the grey plastic and the added paint apps especially on the shoulder cannon

    Compared with Siege Shockwave. Love the brighter purples on the new version.

    Never thought I'd see someone say the ER mold was superior to the Siege mold.

    With that coloring, yes it is. It will be better if he comes with that evil face of the Netflix version...

    Just wish they’d put the Siege head on the ER Dramatic capture redo, that ER head is just so rediculous looking — better with good paint, but still too long/flat/big/smooth/frowny/weird…

    I didn’t realize how different the fusion cannons were between them (though neither is particularly accurate)

    Only had a chance to mess with Megatron so far, but he's definitely my favorite deco of the Siege/ER engineering yet.

    The only thing Siege ever had over ER was the face imo. First using the Siege head on the ER body then later using one of The Madness's heads was enough for me to make ER my main Megs.
