    They hinted at a reveal for 8/27 at the end of the last stream but it is nice that they will be doing an entire stream. Maybe they will show off a bit more than just the Haslab project.

    God, I hope they're fixing their presentation.

    They could learn a thing or two from Nintendo Directs.

    BTW you might want to edit your post so the bottom of the screenshot is cropped out, especially if this makes the front page.

    I wouldn't count on it, but I really hope they replace those low energy, jigglypuff song dudes.

    I appreciate the confirmation, but they had already announced this at the end of the last FFF.

    I don't remember the Unicron reveal, but I think Galactus had a dedicated stream. It makes sense. The HasLab is gonna be expensive, so you don't want people who are trying to budget to get forced in to a decision between Star Saber and the latest wave of figures.

    Especially since a HasLab project would be ending in late September, potentially October. I dunno about everyone else, but my Ark from Pulse is still marked 9/1. And W4 on Amazon has been holding steady on October 5th.

    That could get spendy for people as it is.

    For an expensive product, an hour to show it off sounds pretty standard. How long did Unicron get for his big reveal? Plus SS /VL / VS combo may need a JG1 history lesson to get people invested in the character.

    Just watch, the reveal of star Saber will take up 5 minutes of the stream. And the rest of the stream will be mobile game trailers.

    It's been so long, but I don't think Hasbro was doing the livestreams back during the Unicron campaign. (Or if they did, they're no longer available on the Pulse YouTube channel. The earliest available video IS a Unicron video though.)

    There were *some* but Unicron was revealed before COVID so there were still conventions and panels where they could discuss him.

    If I remember, the first major stream tied to Pulse was in early 2020 when they revealed stuff like much of ER W2, Sky Lynx, Dealer, and a few other things. Though that was streamed on FACEBOOK, not Youtube.

    But even that still had a display case and live audience. I think around that time was when COVID *just* started breaking free and within the next few weeks things started locking down. That was when Hasbro started utilizing streams more.

    Unicron was revealed at NYCC2019, back when people could actually gather together in large groups in the before times. I couldn't find any streams or lengthy videos by Hasbro detailing Unicron at all with the longest being 5 minutes long. So it is possible that Hasbro could show off Kingdom Wave 4, which right now is rumored to be just 4 Deluxes and 1 Voyager so really not that Pricey in the grand scheme of things. 2 of those Deluxes we have seen and are minor retools that I bet a lot of people may skip.

    Plus I don't expect the rumored Star Saber + Victory Leo set to be over $300 at the most so not too pricey.

    I'm expecting Pipes and Slammer to be revealed, with all the BW characters completely missing, only to be dumped online later, unceremoniously.

    Why do you expect them to reveal only half of a wave or was that just sarcasm?
