^She has purple hair?
Baroness looks fantastic and I actually want that Coil bike as well. Very curious to see what the individual release will be painted like as what we see in the collage on the packaging doesn’t match this deco.
The artwork for what is assumed to be the single packed release has purple highlights and gold accents on the armor parts. Pretty sure he was referring to that.
I still haven't really seen wave 1 in much abundance at my local Target?
Of course! They’ve been stocking the figures when we’re not looking, then secretly sneaking them into the back room again when people show up! It’s the perfect crime!*
*I’m kidding, but wouldn’t it be funny if that was true?
I think they’ve only ever gotten one case at my local Target so far.
My deep discounts preorder for Destro has gone with the wind. Originally I was hoping to find snake eyes in store but I noticed Amazon had it's backorder status update to show an expected delivery. A day or so after I ordered I received another updated delivery window and I had him the very next day. Unfortunately Cobra Island looks to be a Target thing so I'll just have to wait till the 14th and hopefully it's not all lies like the other stores.
So I haven't been able to find the info on Walmart.com, but can someone tell me how many infants I must sacrifice for Walmart to keep my preorders?
Edit: Cause I've been reading the R.E.D news thread and Walmart is starting to pass out the bitchslappings.
So far, only Impactor and Red Alert were outright cancelled and RED Megatron and Soundwave were just delayed (for now). My GI Joes remain okay but we'll see what happens in the coming days.
It's difficult to tell if the purple is meant to represent purple tipped hair or if that's just a lighting effect. But looking at the promo pieces, I think the single packed release is going to be the all-black costume we thought we were getting with the Target exclusive—albeit with gold accents. I think I'd be fine with this version unless they slather a lot of gold on the boots, which I don't think have been shown yet.
Possible. It's hard to tell exactly how it'll turn out just from the artwork.
They doing it with the red line now too? Surprisingly all of my netflix wave 2 stuff survived with no cancellations
Yeah, I was just crackin' a joke at the expense of the poor sold who got all there R.E.D orders shitcanned. So far, both my Black Series Ashoka and Hisstank are in the clear for November and October respectively.
Unlike most, I'm not really scared about not finding Walmart exclusives at retail, they push them really hard. Prime example, Huge display for all things transformers (which may I add, is becoming an annual occurrence) including the Netflix stuff, and I can still go out and buy it. I think the Retro Joes will be a cakewalk to find. I'm just scared about those infamous Black Series Scalpers...
Yep, orders being delayed or cancelled left and right.
That's crazy. Hopefully the 4 I ordered survive and actually ship
Your lucky, when I got off work, they were already sold out. I'm gonna pray for them to hit retail. I was lucky enough to grab BS Ashoka and Hiss tank before The Great Scalp of Walmart Collector Con
They should be, this will be the 3rd time that those specific versions of Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow will be available and Snake Eyes doesn’t come with the alternate V1 head sculpt so there’s less demand for this one. I might get Storm Shadow but that might be it.
I could be wrong but I think the solo Baroness release won’t have different hair color accents, could’ve just been meant to be purple reflective light on the hair for the package art. I also think the body might just be in all black compared to the grey trim on the bike release.

Where do you live that your Walmarts actually have stuff, haha! Mine just sells sadness and Nesquik.
Considering she had the purple in her hair for two promotional art images, it's pretty much a given at this point.
I have a theory that there's been enough time, and complaints, for the actual release to have had any purple highlights removed by now.
(and maybe change the gold to silver? Silver has long been a "traditional" accent color for her, and would also match mass-release CC)
“I’ve waited an eternity for this.”
A great collecting week. I finally own a Scorponok after 33 years. After months of waiting, I finally have a Vintage Mandalorian. And a Cobra Trooper. If I were a patient man, I’d wrap these up and put them under a Xmas tree. Unboxing in less than 24 hours....
