The figure shown here are wave 1 and 2 earthrise correct(wanting to make sure, kinda confusing to me whose in what wave except for wave 1
Smokescreen is wave 2? I thought he was wave 3
Dat Skorponok and Doubledealer. Mmm.
Arcee here look so much better compare to those promo shot which is mistransformed
Scorponok and Quintesson really look aces! Shame I don't have space for Scorponok.
Arcee looks great as well. If only she'd have more paint.
>Sees battle between Autobots and Decepticons
>Starscream is leading them
>Its still a bit unbalanced like it was in Siege
Jeez its if I'm the only one who wants a good amount of Decepticons then Autobots....I'm probably in the minority on this one ain't I?
Damn, ER Smokescreen is awfully tempting.
Awesome to see the battle squad getting a reissue, hopefully that means red tape guy and ratbat will also be on the way again.
Wow All of wave 2 lots great.
ER Smokescreen looks amazing I passed on the siege version and if Prowl and Bluestreak look just as good it will be the first time I got all 3.
With a handful of Siege Transformers getting an Earthrise re-release, Astrotrain, Smashdown, Rung, and now the Battle Squad, is this due to the lack of brand new Earthrise Transformers, or is Hasbro dragging out the Earthrise and Part 3 lines of the War for Cybertron trilogy, so it ends when HasLab Unicron gets released? Either way if I got the chance to decide which Siege Transformers figures get re-released in an Earthrise box, I choose red Rumble and Ratbat and the Phantom Strike Squadron.
With the exception of Smashdown the rest of the "Siege" toys rereleased in Earthrise were Earthrise toys originally pulled forward to make Siege's originally unplanned wave 5. IIRC Earthrise Smashdown's product number suggests he's a late addition to Earthrise w1, possibly as a substitute for a pulled forward toy.
Rumble & Ratbat could well have an Earthrise rerelease, but you're probably out of luck on the Amazon Exclusive Phantomstrike Squadron.
I wouldn't be surprised to see Spinister back in Earthrise deluxe w4 either!
I'm totally having a weird Mandela Effect thing here where I already have Direct-Hit and Power Punch but I feel like I have the ER version BUT I KNOW THAT'S NOT POSSIBLE AND HOLY CRAP I NEED TO GO TO BED.
Arcee still looks terrible. The partsforming is optional (this would've been common knowledge if the fanbase didn't immediatly jump the shark on her and read the product description when IGN showed the pictures) and hence TT included her with it in the promo pics. I was initially excited for her with my core complaint being her car front being fake but then then the TT photos showed that the alt mode looks like a bar of soap. To add insult to injury pictures from Allspark fourms seem to indicate that the shell is casted out of translucent plastic too so it's probably gonna hit some durability issues in the long run. Unless 3P reworks her shell so it doesn't look like something straight out of Death Stranding its a pass and a maybe in the bargain bin.
I just saw the article.....my best guess due to the low-supply the Siege versions cost they're like "Well shit....not all of them really showed up in stores...lets fix that"
Damn it, how many more toys am I going to have to re-buy to complete my space map?
Fortunately I have both Rumble/Ratbat and the Phantom Strike Squadron, I just think those who did miss out need a 2nd chance of adding Skywarp Tetra jet to their collections.
I mean....you don't really have too....its best you just keep what you get...could sell your original copies off though.
That doubledealer's height just like traditional leader class
Im glad I didnt give up on her. Its mental how much mistransforming a couple of bits can make it look that bad......still not transformed the hoverboard right though
