    There was also an unreleased Micromaster storage case/APC/base that I'd really like to see resurrected from oblivion, and the Autobot HQ Semi... which is awkwardly close to Optimus's look when assembled.

    I got that too! Siege was near perfect, but the lack of a trailer really bothered me more than I thought it would. Then the earthrise is revealed and I think they nailed it.

    There's two of almost everyone in the picture. Optimus and Hoist are in the middle in vehicle mode and on the right side in robot mode. Vehicle Wheeljack is in the "pen" as well with his robot mode standing at the bottom of the frame outside the fence. I imagine it's just to show off all the figures in both modes.

    I didn't even think about that when I first saw him. Now I want it even more. I've always busted on Cliffjumper so hard for botching what should've been an easy shot with his giant gun (considering he missed by a huge margin) :lol 

    I was hoping for the movie characters in this line as well, but I guess not. I'm fine with not getting Hot Rod yet because I have my PotP Hot Rod out with the rest of them and he fits right in. But I was really angling for Arcee to join the rest of the fembot brigade and maybe Blurr and Cyclonus. It'd also be cool to give Megatron a break for an imprint or two and have a proper Galvatron instead.

    My wishlist is kind of in an odd spot right now. I'm not huge into Grapple or Hoist or "slightly different Optimus with trailer!" and as much as I like a proper jet-mode Starscream, I'm not a fan of the robot proportions after how perfect I think the tetrajet Siege seekers look, so there's a lot that doesn't gra me the way Cliffjumper and Wheeljack do. But I'm a completionist sucker so chances are I'll end up getting almost everything before it's all said and done. Last year with PotP I swore I wasn't getting Rodimus Unicronus to save me $70 Cdn but as I type this he's currently standing on my entertainment center next to my PS4, back to back with Nemesis Prime. And I regret nothing :lol .


    My one thing I am curious about now is what's the deal with Astrotrain? He's listed as part of this line, but still listed as part of Siege. Are there two versions, or this going to be a "Malibu Stacy with new hat!" scenario where we can buy the Siege one now and then buy a slightly different but 99% the same version next year during the run of Earthrise?

    Astrotrain is just being repacked for Earthrise wave 1 as he was meant to be in this line but got pulled forward to extend siege to wave 5.
    Smashdown is also being repacked with Soundbarrier.

    Ideas for Iron Works repaints?

    I say Constructicon Hightower. Red Heat would be remolded into Hightower who would be commander of the base Hightower.

    I’m pretty sure Greasepit (or, rather his gas station) would be the most logical retool.

    I think we should have had Redwing as the first retail release of the new seeker mold, and have had a box-set of Starscream, Thundercracker and Skywarp from day one of Earthrise.

    Insert Vader NOOOOOOOOOOO here

    Yes, Siege is perfect, but I can't get past the damaged paint, otherwise, he's bought on spot.

    Personally, I’m down for WFC3 being TFTM, Beast Wars, and nothing else. It’s a shared anniversary after all.

    I was the wrong age for Beast Wars, but the Dinobots and Seacons were some of my G1 favorites, so I feel like I was ahead of my time.

    That was my thought, too. The base modes are the same general shape at least. Just replace the crane arm with a rocket launcher, with a new torso piece that looks more like a garage, rather than an industrial refinery or something.

    Would be pretty neat for me, since those were the two that I had as a kid.

    And Airwave and Hot House’s bases could be retooled into each other as well.

    You are not alone with that desire, seeing how great Earth Prime looks, I also want an Earth mode UM! Just paint Earth Prime in white, slap a new G1 armor trailer to resemble more of the toon, and I'll be one happy UM fan.

    In this pic you can see a dark gray plastic something inside his wrist.
    Prime Hands.jpg

    I think the arm opens up and the hand folds inside using that dark gray joint, similar to the Siege Seeker mold. That being the case, the hand might be mushroom pegged into the dark gray joint just like the Seeker mold hand is, which would make it easily removable for painting. An easy hand swap between Prime and Siege Starscream or IonStorm might even be possible.

    I guess Hasbro's just as mad as us considering how many times they've killed him off at this point:stick:

    I agree, I'd love to see them redone as well.
    Also for me it's both ways. I also would like to see the remaining cars done in cybertronian modes as well.

    (The armored car is going to be Rodimus. It's perfect for what they're doing for Earthrise.)

    Why would we get a gray fisted OP like the prototype while OP of the press release shows the correct blue fists? From my experience press release is final...
