    Well, I have no regrets about canceling the Nemesis Bridge set. Megatron & Soundwave don't really seem to be that big of an improvement. However, that means I still don't have a good CHUG Shockwave - the Walgreens special is still on my shelf somehow. If anyone cares to part with their old version, now that they have the new-and-improved version, I'll take him off your hands. I don't need a box or any of that, either. Just DM me a reasonable price shipped to Virginia.

    As for the new OP/Jazz/Mainframe - gotta give it to Hasbro/Takara or whoever for trying to wring the absolute last bit of life from a mold. I have no doubt it will sell, just not to me. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Botcon Kick-off is also based on Jazz mold.

    I wonder if the Diaclone guys will go up at the same time. I’d like to get all three on the same Amazon order to save shipping.

    Forcing anybody who wants a color accurate mainframe to purchase another earthrise Optimus and a random jazz is kind of cruel.

    Hot take: u don’t have to buy the same figure 20 times over

    edit: I just noticed it kinda looks like jazz has a new spoiler, unless that’s just the poor photo quality

    I'm definitely interested in it for the earthrise optimus prime with the toon accurate deco and mainframe. Especially mainframe because I never got the kingdom titan class ark. However, I'm not thrilled about the studio series 86 jazz being included. I've got the one from the generations selects 5-pack and I think it's my definitive jazz figure especially since he doesn't have clear plastic unlike the one in this pack. I'll probably get it for optimus and mainframe, but I could care less about that jazz figure.

    With Optimus there\'s the excuse they love dropping Optimi and it\'s the most g1 Optimus they\'ve done in a while.  But why are they squeezing in Jazz over and over?

    No, it’s just an annoying habit of his. Not sure why he’s obsessed with it…

    Oh that's a cool way to get that Mainframe figure out there for anyone who didn't get the Ark. Love the extra paint work as well.

    I get Mainframe and Kick-off (tho I'd prefer him as a retool of Reactivate Bee), but what in the world about Origins Wheeljack made you think of Gutcruncher?

    I might get this just for the new mainframe. He\'s a perfect teletran one and a perfect mainframe. IDC about having another earthrise Optimus since ss86 coming up, and idc about jazz since I\'m getting the multipack. Honestly might sell them

    I wouldn't mind getting Mainframe, but I have no interest in yet another SS86 Jazz and ER Optimus, nor do I have the motivation to go through the effort of selling those two off. So, easy skip.
