    Nobody knows for sure, but that's the current guess since we have zero leaks for Wave 4, but we've already seen Kingdom figures, lol. The planned Wave 4 characters were probably moved to exclusives or into Kingdom.

    Early promo material that never got adjusted. Wave 4 wasn't canceled per se. Siege cannibalized a wave of Earthrise (Spinister, Apeface and Astrotrain at least). Many 4th/final waves are a single deluxe, so taking a single deluxe from Earthrise was enough to shift from 4 to 3 waves. All of this happened prior to Earthrise even coming out. The exclusives WERE NOT part of a 4th wave. I'm saying this based on information the reputable leakers have shared in addition to the fact that many of this years exclusives were leaked as far back as march.

    Everything we would have gotten for wave 4 is still being released (except maybe an earth mode sideswipe if recent leaks are true, a leaker said that one was planned but scrapped), it's just the wave structures was altered a bit.

    No wave 4 might be a hard pill to swallow...but lets be honest. Generations selects has basically given us a 5th wave of Siege and 4th wave of ER if not more.

    Not to mention Walmart Netflix. Elita, Soundwave and Bumblebee could have formed the core of a pretty decent wave 4.

    Whether we lost out of Wave 4 because of Covid or not (and I think we did) those figures just went elsewhere. We still are getting them. The main difference is for international collectors where that stuff can be a lot harder to get.

    Add to those...the Amazon exclusives (two voyager coneheads, four deluxes (so far))...and thats before you start counting exclusives from target or other stores.

    I think if Earth Mode Sideswipe was canceled, theyll try to fit it in elsewhere, because they've rehashed a decent number of siege stuff to have an earth mode, and it'd be weird having earth Sunstreaker and not an earth Sideswipe, imo.

    But can we just also give hasbro props for the sheer volume of choice we have recently? Like sure people can complain about places handling of exclusives, but we are getting so many characters and complete sets of smaller groups like ER not only having the whole seeker trio, but the coneheads, etc. Not "well we got THIS starscream repainted into Thundercracker, and I guess this Skywarp looks kinda like them, so we can have them together.... They are all part of the same line and thus, all go together very well. For gods sake, we are even getting Black Roritchi. Between the exclusives and Generations Selects, Siege/ER have been a HUGE line in terms of importance and they've been great. Hopefully Kingdom follows suit.


    Also, Pulse con HAS to be where we see ER Thrust, right??

    The Galactic Odyssey subline seems to have been a last minute thing, so it's possible he may end up there, especially if the tooling was actually finished. At the same time, if one does come out I would expect people to complain since it would likely not have a spoiler :lol

    Yep. ER streaker is in his earthmode and he doesn’t have a spoiler, most likely to match the siege sideswipe altmode. Honestly an earthmode sideswipe wouldn’t look much different from the siege one.

    Biggest difference would probably be a roof. As an example there's the Wei Jiang ko (which I'm kind of wondering if it might actually be a ko of an ER version)

    Hmm, the link is gone from the top bar. But I can still find the purchase page (Hasbro Pulse Premium). Don't know what that means.

    Not sure if I should resubscribe. Not sure if it's worth it when I'm Canadian.

    Hard to say.
