    Meanwhile at least one MASK Mandate is still running...

    Sadly it doesn't benefit the whole of society either.

    With announcements hopefully coming tomorrow, I've had a think about the waves listed in the 'News' section and what I know I'll want from them, assuming they all pan out. There are bound to be others that catch my eye once I see them in toy form, plus plenty of Exclusives, Selects and Shattered Glass figures that I haven't listed here. A few like Elita-1 and 86 Arcee will depend on exactly how different they are from the current versions. It could be a fairly expensive 2022-23 if they all turn up.

    Studio Series


    Wave 1
    Core: TF6 Ravage
    Deluxe: TF6 Brawn, TF6 Wheeljack, TF6 Ratchet, 86 Arcee (new?)
    Voyager: TF6 Soundwave
    Leader: 86 King Starscream

    Wave 2
    Core: 86 Spike
    Deluxe: TF6 Arcee
    Voyager: 86 Junk Yard
    Leader: 86 Sludge

    Wave 3
    Core: 86 Rumble
    Voyager: TF6 Thundercracker

    Wave 4
    Deluxe: TF6 Ironhide

    Legacy

    Wave 1
    Core: Skywarp, Hot Rod
    Deluxe: Wild Rider, Elita-1 (new?), Tarantulas
    Voyager: (Siege) Soundwave Pr (new paint job?)
    Leader: Blitzwing, Optimus Prime (new mold?)

    Wave 2
    Core: Shockwave, G2 Megatron, Hotrod, Skywarp
    Deluxe: Dragstrip, Kickback, Skids
    Voyager: Blaster

    Wave 3
    Core: Energon Monster (?)

    B9BF2F80-CC4C-42D0-8887-083A2D72480F.jpeg Galvatron now dual wielding so he can kill Wreckers and Mayhem twice as fast as before. I also have a spare matrix, so think it’s time to see who can carry such a burden… Hopefully I’ll get to tinker with Hotlink, but that’s a fine looking robot even just in package.

    Yeah, that's exactly what I'm talking about. You get similar things in other fandoms. I haven't liked Chibnall's seasons as Doctor Who showrunner, but you can't have a decent conversation about that without one side going "Chibnall has RUINED Doctor Who forever with his wokeness and women and wokeness and my childhood has been DESTROYED" and the other side going "you just HATE women and want all Doctors to be white men forever!!!"

    It's... very tiring.

    That appears to be the SS86 version, given the solid gold neck, wrist gaps and Wheelie on his shoulder.

    I can take the ultra boyish Tom Holland as Nathan drake, he's got the charm. But fucking marky Mark as sully? Ye what?!

    Ancient barrister Ian McElhinney selmy or dam Sam elliot...

    Pure tune.

    My uncle was a stripper. Wall paper, paint, his clothes. He was an erotic decorator.

    Yes. Yes. This pleases me greatly. Nice work bro.

    Yup, I am way choosier with Lego now than I've ever been. Partly because of the price (biggest toyline in the world even though the stuff gets almost immediately discounted by necessity), but mostly because the TFs hurt my wallet like nothing else!

    I understand us transformers fans aren't the brightest, but I never expected us to be that dumb.

    Well, maybe. OK yeah there's definitely people stupid enough

    Someone will boxswap and return an FE Bulk to WalMart in Legacy box. Always someone who thinks new equals better.

    All this talk of FE Bulkhead made me want to find me copy, which then led to me wanting to find my FE Megatron, which then led to me remembering I'd lost his fusion cannon, which...

    Anyway, long story short, I've just ordered ApC Toys version of Megatron and MMCs version of Thunderclash from RobotToyBase. I'm really pleased with getting Thunderclash as I'm sure I've looked before and not been able to find him anywhere. Which I guess is no surprise, what with him being the most awesome Autobot who's ever lived.
