    Its a good possibility. Plus with Earthrise still TECHNICALLY around. They might FINALLY give us Needlenose (I will gladly do the documentary review if it comes out). But this isn't the speculation thread, this is my theory if not yours too. NYCC at best will show us the possible Part 3 and SS-86 line up.

    Looking at the Takara pics, I cannot fathom why they used such a cheap shade of yellow for the rim and arrow on Soundwave's chest door. Siege Soundwave had a gold rim and it looked great (battle damage notwithstanding) - why can't Netflix Soundwave have it as well? There's even the perfect shade of gold already on the figure itself, on the small horizontal 'stripes' right next to the chest door. Really hope that they change it in the final product.

    How was Skywarp unreachable? It was available on Amazon for pre-order for quite some time, and was even available for a while after it was released.

    that depends on where you live, but regardless, try comparing a siege SS or TC, with SW

    That's true, but Starscream and Thundercracker were both retail releases, so it makes sense that the exclusive is pulling higher aftermarket prices.

    Guys, how legit is this list? I found this on Discord. (I also don't know when it was created, because we do know about Runabout)

    100% bogus, the guy that created it is a know fraud that uses "algorithms" to predict figures by taking known leaks and peppering them with his personal wish list. Runabout is already confirmed as an Earthrise release and one of the legit leakers said the commander and titan wouldn't be BW related, so a commander Magnaboss won't be happening either

    Well there's never been a power master Megatron so just going by that I'd say fake. The rest are all either easy guesses or just the most in demand by fans.

    I mean, that figure is based on the WFC show. So I’d say she’s kinda screen accurate

    Plastic-eating rubber? WTF? Is that some new type of ooze for D&D? :D  Seriously, never heard of or seen such a thing.
    Only type of rubber that I had issue with were the chain-maces for AM Rumbler's vehicle, which started oozing some oily substance. Had them locked up in a bag for several years now. I hear the Monster Pretender shells could have the same problem, but that has not happened with mine

    I had most of my Siege toys on display for months with blast effects and never noticed any issues. This is the first I even hear of such claims. Do you have any photos of this happening? 'cause I assume if these rubber pieces would have this effect on plastic, they would also melt through their packaging bubbles, and I have yet to see that happen in WFC toys I see in stores.

    LOLWUT, these stories read more and more like urban legends. Never heard any of my collector friends having such problems, neither did I. Though frankly, most people would be using the blast effects at the end of a gun or something. Still, I had one in the barrel of Omega Supreme's silver-painted gun arm for pretty much as long as he has been here, so half a year, and the paint is just fine.

    Bee has been this ochre yellow color in a lot of media. There is a reason the Masterpiece toys also used this shade of yellow.
    Though that whole photo seems seriously un-lit for me, so he should be a bit more lighter yellow.

    They are from Stormbringer, the first IDW miniseries by Furman. Autobot defense drones that Bludgeon has reactivated.
    Centurion droid - Transformers Wiki
    The name of the drones are based on Centurion, a robot from Marvel UK G1 comics, who was an US government project hijacked by professor Morris, a guy who previously once mind-controlled Swoop. He eventually became an ally of the Autobots, and sacrificed himself to stop Megatron in a crossover with GI Joe (erm, Action Force).

    There is no "Takara version". They are releasing the same toys as Walmart, just about 3-4 months later.

    I can\'t PFE order Soundwave. Every time I check WalMart.com he\'s \"out of stock\". Why? Can I pre order him in person at my local WalMart?

    Yup and also...

    The plastic used for packaging bubbles is entirely different than that used for toys; consequently, it reacts differently.

    It was never anything, just someone's guess and the name caught on, none of the known info guys ever said anything about Armageddon as a name.

    No you don’t understand. The livestream said pre orders would be open at 11, and I went to the WalMart app right away, and it was already out of stock before
