    Sure. That's why we have new molds for Apeface and Spinister and Scorponok and Fasttrack and Runamuck and redecos of guys like the Powerdashers or a brand new mold for a character like Impactor who never had his own toy before... ;) 

    To all the people here complaining about "milky white plastic"... a question?
    Do you actually have WFC Siege Apeface?
    'cause I do, and he is perfectly fine. That plastic is detailed and guess what, it even shows up detailed on photos. It is also not weak or fragile.
    Stop complaining based on internet photos as "evidence" and maybe wait until you can see it with your own eyes and touch it with your own hands

    Not right away. Only when the thing's getting shipped.

    Like, I pre-ordered Super Megatron last month, but he's not coming until September, so I should be charged by then.

    They do a full charge immediately but then reverse it within a few days. Or at least they used to.

    I dunno how SG Optimus having a lollipop is comparable to random anime girl watching what seems like Evangelion on her computer, but sure, whatever...
    And what do you mean by "cuts"? Don't you mean "cameos"? 'cause Prime has Animated Bomb-Burst and Submarauder as toys apparently (odd considering he is supposedly a murderous psychopath tyrant last I checked that universe) and also G1 Bugly.

    WUT. Is that for real? But how is "girl has a purple jacket" a reference to SG Optimus? You can make the argument with that logic that she is a reference to Shockwave, or Impactor, or any purple transformer. Or you can say that Captain America is a reference to Optimus Prime because they both are red, white and blue heroes... :p

    So you can't have an opinion on God Neptune unless you pay 200 dollary doos and have it in hand? That's a bit ridiculous, especially if it is later confirmed to be like Apeface since people can use that as a reference to see if it's something they like or not.
    I've owned both Apeface and G1 Siege Sideswipe and already know if God Neptune plastic is like those it's a hard pass despite me liking these characters.

    you mean like to check if the account at least has money on a hold and then drop it? I had a plasma card that made me hate ordering from Amazon cause they did the same with it each and every damn time

    They don't charge formally until the item ships, however they do put a cover charge on your card when you order then immediately refund it

    People, you have a full month to figure out your preorder situation and it's exclusive, so it's going to be difficult trying to find it elsewhere.

    PAY ATTENTION

    Because of context. A user explained the reference, the anime in question is SSS Gridman which has a bunch of references to transformers in its character colour schemes and said "random anime girl" is based on Shattered Glass OP and the "Evangelion" on the screen is voiced by Cyberverse Shockwave Japanese VA.
    So the comic having SG OP talking to Cyberverse Shockwave on a screen is most likely a roundabout reference to Gridman.
    Also "deeps cuts" is a common term used to refer to references to obscure stuff.

    It doesn't matter how many times you post it, how big you make it, or how you draw attention to it, come June 16th, the boards will be filled with people saying "what?? I can't preorder? There was an expiration? These are sooooooo hard to get? Why didn't Hasbro make these readily available for everyone? WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY???"
