    I have more Siege preordered and purchased this year, than any line in previous years.
    I also have 7 MPs either preordered or purchased.

    I didn\'t realize smokescreen was going to be a retail release. Looks like I\'m pulling it off my tfsource stack. Eff those mark up prices.

    I want to see the art because I'm wondering if she went to earth or stayed on cybertron. Originally she wasn't part of the ark crew but cyberverse and the terminator comic have her as a crewmember so I'm wondering if wfc carried that over.

    I wonder how the waves will hit retail?

    Its pretty late in terms of wave 2, that are usually around 3 months apart, I hope wave 4 doesn't get mothballed but then again, wave 4 could go into 2021 with Wave 1 of WFC part 3 starting in May 2021, they may be following a new precedent and gone may be the days of the new line showing up around Christmas etc

    I agree with all of these picks. While the prime wars figures were decent , They don't hold up now.

    A new Gears /swerve and a Huffer / Pipes moulds would be totally tubular

    Airwave looks like an absolute unit in box. Seems huge. I’m surprised how Smokescreen’s packaging gives so much prominence to his weapons. I’ve got him and Arcee on pre order.

    Now that is undeniably a picture taken within the factory lol, the stickers have hasbros own internal product codes on them.

    Only getting Smokescreen and Airwave of this lot, smokescreen is exactly what I expected but Airwave is awesome and very generous looking in the package, can only see one hand peg of his weapons he takes up so much of the window!

    Totally agree, at least there is an option to remove the backpack!

    And having the overboard adds something pretty interesting.

    I like the idea of arcee being an autobot scout and the hoverboard makes sense for a scout

    That Arcee could be a cheap MP option... I just hope she will not have a lot of "paint damage", at least on that picture I can´t see anything.

    Fans: -Whine about how there isn't enough paint detail on a lot of figures-

    Hasbro: -tries to add interesting paint details an weathering-

    Fans: -Whine about the figures looking ugly and the cost being higher-

    Hasbro: why

    I think the Netflix figures are a triumph!

    I better preorder Arcee if she’s coming out soon, I don’t mind missing out on Smokescreen because Siege does the job for me. I can wait on the Allicons to show up later on when I’ve got everything else ordered. Airwave is nice I might get 3.

    Because there it's done right. I feel that on a lot of the seige figures the battle damage just looks like splatter... I'd preferred if they'd done 'Clean' figures in the the regular line and battle damaged ones in the netflix line.

    Interestingly they used real model paint techniques in a way that I don't think any toyline with $20 price points ever came close to doing. Starting with black, layering up. Amazing.

    Man this wave is taking forever to get out. Too bad it’s not the most interesting wave, that Arcee and smokescreen are very low on my list of wants. Definitely down for the other two though
