    If you interact with TF stuff on social media in general then you'd basically have to cut yourself off from the internet overall.

    Do it all then, I interact with it and it’s mostly just this website and YouTube. Point remains, if you’re someone who cares that much about leaks etc before a stream then you can control whether you see it or not. The thing is people don’t have the self control to not log on here or other places for a couple of days if we’re being honest

    As I said above, I don't mind leaks, and if the figure from the leaks is not mistransformed then I have no problem with it.

    Anyway, do you think any figure will be leaked today? I think that one of the figures whose photos were leaked on the Chinese website is 86 Springer, because we have heard a lot about him in recent weeks.

    Always possible. Guess it depends on how frisky the leakers are feeling today.

    Could see him leaking, though if someone had to leak I'd kinda want BBM Skywarp or the Decepticon Goon to leak just so we at least have the more interesting figures to look forward to seeing still.

    My suspicion is that if Core class has been done away with next year, then this Soundwave (along with the Perceptor who comes with Ratbat & Ramhorn) was a very late addition to the line just to get the last few cassettes out there.

    I have to think a new Ravage will be one of the cassettes, the only question is if he’ll have both Laserbeak and Buzzsaw, what with them being duplicates of each other.

    My suspicion is we may just see Soundwave done in the same paint style as the Walmart retro one with the painted door and 2 new cassettes, Ravage plus one of the 2 condors, though 3 cassettes would be lovely. Even better if its Earthrise Soundblaster or comic Soundwave instead of another Sunbow Soundwave.

    If
    we only get 2 cassettes though, I hope Buzzsaw is the bird one we get. I could easily see us getting an Earthrise Netflix Soundblaster repaint with the other bird cassette and a captive Autobot stripes next year as an exclusive somewhere then.

    There's also a toy Blue Frumble they could toss in with Soundwave, hypothetical Soundblaster, or packed in another multipack with non-translucent "Autobot tape that came with Twincast"

    This is very true, and I almost put that down (I know you and quite a few others are after toy blue Frumble!) though I always feel like there’s a possibility we may get another cassette multipack down the line of ‘Enemy’ - The red & gold Frumble, plus Nightstalker the black Steeljaw repaint along with a couple other oddities like the cobalt Sentry team.

    I think for me its the expectation that if it is Soundwave with a set number of cassettes, if the whole package will be rereleased wholesale as Soundblaster / comic Soundwave with repainted cassettes of whatever is sold in this set, or if any future releases will have other cassettes added / removed.

    It’s weird, because I’m in a position where I don’t particularly want a new Netflix Soundwave, but if it was Soundblaster or comic Soundwave I’d be far more keen to get it.

    IF core class is disappearing, it will be interesting to see how they distribute the remaining cassettes, since they won't be able to stretch them out over years as single releases. I'm banking on store exclusives, which will suck. My personal hope is, after redoing Ravage, they give us an easily obtainable box set of Soundblaster and all the weirdo cassettes like Nightstalker, Stripes, and Enemy.

    Springer is literally whenever they feel like it, a buddy of mine has seen photos of him already. Could be Tuesday morning, could be in 5 minutes, just a matter of when they're given the all clear. Outside of him though, I don't know of any stolen copies of any of the others from that Wave being in the wild yet. They very well could be as they're at the factories, that info is just above my paygrade lol.

    How about this as some middle ground?

    If someone wants to share the pics of '86 Springer in this thread, put them in spoiler tags. I for one would love to see photos early. If anything, it gets me more interested in the announcement.

    Bring on the leaks. If Hasbro isn't 1) going to crack down on security and 2) show off there stuff in a timely fashion, then let someone unaffiliated do an early premiere, complete with honest assessment

    if Hasbro's marketing can't be bothered to get ahead of the leakers then they deserve to get the "surprise spoiled", cry about it

    now show me SS86 Bee

    I'm not particularly after toy blue Frumble so much as I think he and non-transparent Rewind seem destined for some sort of battle pack/multi-pack and we should be on the lookout for it. Like, if the "Retro" line at Wal-Mart is toy deco themed, those two seem ideal add-ins for a pack approximately the size of the Target Percy/Steeljaw/Ratbat set.
