    And yet they've never done it when I placed down pre-orders for Megatron, Seawing and Nautilator.

    I appreciate the appearance of Battle Core Optimus Prime from Combiner Wars in the comic, if only because I fished him out the garage only two days ago.

    as for God Neptune, I think they look cool but it’s a bit of a shame they’re using the same white plastic as Siege Apeface (At least from first appearances). Good opportunity to pick up some rare characters though

    It's not a new term at all. It's been music in reference to music for decades.

    ELI5:What does it mean to call a song a "deep cut"? : explainlikeimfive

    I don't watch anime but I've seen the references to the show a lot. They're deliberate nods.

    Hasbro Pulse will charge your card, but it's an authorization only. After so many days, the charge goes away. So the money is never removed, only placed on temporary hold.

    Some people have said they have seen a charge and then a reverse charge, but I've never had that happen to me personally.

    I saw two charges. One for 0.00 and then one for the total price.

    Well, I just pre-ordered. Came out to $199.01 (for now), and I still see no authorization hold.

    I'd like to think he's trolling Takara. Just draw up the most obscure random stuff and see what sticks with fans and then Takara is like "GODDAMNIT DUDE!" when suddenly there's this huge wave of support for a new version of that yellow Fire Convoy.

    Heck, if you assume we'll get a new Rodimus similar to Earthrise Prime (robot plus trailer base) that will almost certainly be repainted for the Selects Line as the Primus character who's suddenly found himself a prominent role in this story.

    They came out looking better then I thought. :)  Hope that I'll be able to nab this set in the future.

    And pre-ordered. Six months is plenty of time to save up for these beasts.

    I've never seen a zero charge, but that isn't unheard of. My charge shows up in my pending transactions. Where it will stay for 2-3 days. And then it goes away. My balance will show it as being out of my account, while the temporary authorization is there, but it never actually is taken out. That's how every preorder with Pulse has been for me. I get a charge when I preorder, but the transaction is never finalized, so the money is never actually removed. Then, when the item comes in stock, they charge and process the card (called authorization and capture).

    I've placed nearly 3 dozen orders with Pulse since it launched, this has been the way it works for all of them.

    I have had it take a couple of hours from the time I place my order to when the authorization shows up. Today it was immediate, my bank is set to alert my phone for any charge and it popped up the moment I pressed the submit button.

    Well at least I will have some version of the Seacons, and actually my favorite version of them so it works out. For now I’ll either repurpose them as a Quentisson combiner until we get more BW stuff.

    Also SG Prime is talking to Cyberverse Shockwave. Marks the first appearance of a Cyberverse figure in these comics...no?

    I’m not demanding g1, I’m demanding Armada Sideways To be relevant in new media and get a generations toy
    I mean he was Unicron!,
    ( until cybertron mucked it up)
    Unicron literally said sideways And himself are one in the same so basically he was grifting everyone and pulling a tobi/madara/obito, And it was probably the greatest transformers twist ever, I mean when has Unicron ever lied to us?, except when he was sideways

    Seriously sideways was probably the coolest character in the entire unicron trilogy And I was devastated he didn’t make it to animated or anything since then ( not counting beyverse)

    purple badass motorcycle with faction swapping helmet heads, exhaust pipe null ray like guns, and a cool as hell personality, sigh how I wish a generations sideways would exist or even a MP

    I was really hoping they would include all 6 even though Neptune didn't have all 6.

    Immediately preordered! I’m only slightly bummed there’s no repainted Nautilator but it’s not surprising and I understand why.
