    And when I'd just finished collecting this quintet, after 35 years. I look forward to getting the fifth WFC Stunticon in 2056 …

    Kickback looks very, very like my G1 figure.

    So Kickback will be a pre-order. Others are not "needed" but may take a punt later.

    Urge for Bulkhead rising!
    I still can't get my head around how Hasbro just dump the last line like a hot potato, nothing on Wave 5 of Kingdom, and my poor, underappreciated Tank Boi, Slammer! Nada! Zip!

    Loving Dragstrip and Kickback - though Kickback looks quite big for animation accurate scale - still not complaining he looks great.

    I think the quality and professionalism of the HasbroCon reveals has made me want to stop collecting for a while (but not enough to start a thread about it).

    That was painful and cringe. Why not pre-record it and edit it to make it good?

    Hasbro: "See if you can guess who all these characters are!"
    Fans: "FE Arcee. PRID Arcee. Beast Hunters Arcee. Spare Head Three."

    Some nice toys, no game changers and little wow factor for me, looking forward to seeing Motor-Master.

    Yep.

    Average age of those fans in the zoom tiles must be circa 40. Lol

    So is Pipes just a mass hallucination on our part? Did the merging with Huffer mean he never existed?

    I think Dragstrip looks OK, but have a gut feeling it won't be a patch on the eventual Newage release which would be a better fit for my collection.

    Kickback also looks nice, but again, way too big for my main collection and they'll inevitably make it hard to complete the original trio so I'm good with the Newage set.

    Seems along the lines of Coronation Starscream, ie. a figure that refers to a specific, very brief moment. Not mad on this idea. I suppose they're for display only, unless anyone wants to reenact Starscream's coronation and Megatron's reformatting again and again.

    Arcee, Kickback Bulkhead look ok, but Dragstrip has mushroom pegs.
    Prime has leg issues, just like EROP.
    And I guess that Skidz is their homage to Rocklords

    Happy to swap with you. :p . I’m 47 in January. Hopefully you get to celebrate the big four zero without us going back into lock downs and restrictions on gatherings/parties. My wife turned 40 in April.

    I just found it comical that there wasn’t one person in those zoom tiles between the ages of 18-30.

    I do. He looks wonderful. I can buy into him as a powered up version of Galvatron channelling Unicronian chaos energy rather than leaning on that one scene that one time.

    I'm getting it, specifically for the Unicron bits. Undecided whether I'm keeping the Galvatron yet.

    Nah, This is what these Hasbro Corpo events are like, t'were ever thus. Whilst you or I might think some hype for the latter end of Kingdom might be a good idea, the actual focus of Hascon is to get the NEXT thing hyped, they want the focus on Legacy and covering Kingdom would "split attention". I suspect it's tied more to Hasbros supplier sales than Fan Pre-Orders, as from Hasbro's perspective they've already "sold" the last wave of Kingdom to the middleman toy buyers and stockists, this thing is to hype buyers as much as, if not more than, us overall.
