    And that's it! Lively people, fun to listen to them. :) 

    Quint Judge turns into a Secret Treehouse. Surprised not to see ponies in it. Or Elf Lego.

    Am in for: Coneheads, Elita-1, Bee, Hubcap, Justice Pit, and already preordered Rotorstorm from Ka-Pao.

    Prowl and Ironhide are a maybe if 1) different heads, and 2) Earthrise Datsun mold improves markedly on Siege one.

    Well that was embarassing to watch. If the guy wasn't stoned off his face I'd be astonished.

    Not a bad showing, need BB, the Amazon two packs and the Quint pack, maybe the soundwave retool. Not sure on Hubcap or the other Netflix figures.

    @Neuta My personal guess is Astrotrain because there's no way they're not reusing him and SW flopped store-wise. Even though he's great.

    @Brooticus Think Siege Prime is literal going by the render, a voyager like Megs with Battlemasters.

    Between inyerwebs I may be, but neither InDemand nor StarAction are suddenly viewable, so I'm going to take a punt that something has gone live.........

    But what?

    @Siege Fan you may be right! I'd thought Shockwave due his being more likely to have a prominent role in the plot, but it would be very pleasant if they gave the ol' space choo-choo more to do! I did enjoy seeing him in the current comic.

    (New ish of Transformers: Galaxies is fun too, as is Transformers '84, which has a great line related to some old favourites.)

    I think the current release was deliberately bland to accommodate paint later, and if we're lucky, something around that shuttle section!

    I still have to finish IDW 1.0!

    Oh I know, I'm just confused as to why they've used the Earthrise Op mould to represent Netflix Siege Prime, when there's a 100% show accurate Siege Prime mould ready to use?

    Still, could be great for those who don't want the wafer thin trailer.

    The more I think about it, while I'm still looking forward to Bee, I'm a little miffed they didn't use the remold opportunity to give him a cybertronian Alt mode. I know, I know, the Beetle is iconic. Shut up. Let me whinge.

    So another 8 Netflix toys where at least 2 of them are exclusive AFAIK.
    No judgement on the guy from me, he was clearly enjoying himself and loved the models he got to display.
    I will say I like most of this reveal but then I only recently got back into stuff so a repaint Red Alert isn’t an issue if I don’t have the original version.

    That should be fun! So far IDW 2.0 definitely has its moments too. :) 

    @joetele I expect so! Or at least I hope so! :D 

    @Brooticus I'm confused, I thought they were showing the Earthrise Oppy 'bot mode, but the alt mode they showed was the Siege one! :confused: 

    @Blitzwing75 Yes, he was clearly having a great time! And rightly so. :)
