    If it really is the Armada guy, we’d only be one Micromaster Patrol set away from a full Requiem Blaster!

    Thank you!! I missed the trailer.
    So great to see my boy UM in that trailer. Hopefully, the white Magnus robot cab makes his debut in the show so I can shut up some of my buddies, lol.
    UM wearing the cloak reminds me of Dark of the Moon Megatron, lol.

    Already preordered the casettes. And frankly, pretty sure we will get a Buzzsaw/Glit (or Stripes, or Howlback) repaint set too, but maybe in the main line.

    Blitzwing knocks the third party attempts right out of the park.
    I will wait for reviews on Cliffjumper, as he looks like another "all the car collapses on the back" mold.
    Skipjack is tempting, but I am gonna keep my RotF Rampage instead as the yellow guy...

    Okay, I’ve got all the preorders that I wanted placed on Pulse and Walmart. Really glad to be able to do things this way, rather than scrambling later.

    Umm, check the trailer of the show. Ultra Magnus seems to have a weird disguise going on at one point with a big blank metal armor sheet with a Con symbol on it covering his chest, and wearing a tattered cloak like DotM Megatron. I think that's gonna be what is inside this set.

    So the dates on Pulse have to be wrong. They have wave 2 coming in September? That can’t be right.

    Can we even call that a transformation? Yikes. For a line that's been really solid that's an egregiously bad misstep.

    Twintwist gives me hope for Leadfoot still.

    Love Skylynx and Scorps. Snapdragon and Doubledealer, especially DD look great.

    Can't wait to finish my SS Devs, still can't find Scavenger though.

    Looking forward to the show.

    Ohhhh that's bad. Really bad. Not Machinima-bad, but baaaad. The facial and mouth animations are barely above Cybertron-quality, and the G1 Transformation sound is wildly out of place in such a gritty, realistic setting.

    The voice acting is pretty damn shit, too. And that writing just oozes contrivance and pretentiousness. "You're not fighting to survive, you're fighting to win!" What a completely nonsense statement that I'm sure sounds lofty until you stop to think about it at all. The animation isn't bad, I'll give it that, but it's not really good either. It's very middle of the road, but at least the frame rate is there.

    Also gee, I wonder what the spoiler with Magnus is! I mean, they're hiding his toy, show him doubting Optimus, then show a bot with Magnus' highly distinctive shoulders and body wearing a laughably stupid hood walking towards Megatron.

    WHATEVER COULD THE TWIST BE??

    Wrong Jumpstarter, that's Topspin. :D  (Not that the name matters for a character who never spoke)

    Will wait for retail for most of the stuff revealed, but I did go ahead and pre-order the Selects Cassette 4-pack. At this rate it might be the only way I ever own those molds...

    I never understand why robot needs to wear a cloak, lol, first it was Dark of the Moon Megatron, and now WFC UM.
    From the trailer conversation between Prime and UM, it seems they're portraying UM to be based on Dreamwave War and Peace Series in which he made a deal with Shockwave to preserve the Cybertron race.

    Some executive in the early 80's thought that such a small change would never be an issue, possibly that western audiences would 'get' Rumble as a name easier given the gimmick (or that purple made him obviously a bad guy more than black, or it was cheaper to animate, whichever worked at the time). Probably got a bonus for his 'ingenuity' too.

    Little did he know it'd be a 'thing' almost 40yrs on. It's the little things that matter people...
