    I've never had to pay £50.00 / $50.00 for a normal retail leader (exclusives & giftsets aside) They always get reduced.
    Heck Titans Returns Soundwave was coming in reduced when he was new, The Bumblebee Movie Soundwave is almost given away now.

    So I don't anticipate having to pay that sort of price for a fairly bland Earthrise Prime - who to be honest some across like a lower effort rehash of Starconvoy's toy (or the POTP original) released not that long before it.

    Huh, Hoist doesn\'t have battle damage paint on his chest? I\'m all for that.

    Metroplex, at one point, was taller than both my dog and my son.

    Because babies and puppies are small.

    Yup, they'll just start updating Cyberverse Optimus from now on.

    I wouldn’t be too sure, Optimus has blue elbows and gray hands so I’m guessing the figures are gonna change a bit before release.

    On the off-chance combiners get back in the game, it'll probably just be the same toys as before, but in new packaging, much like Greenlight and Lancer.

    I honestly would like them to do Energon Powerlinx figures. It makes more since, you only need 2 figures instead of the 5-6 for a Combiner, and If they need to switch things up, have the combined mode head be a Titan Master, so no more than 3 figures.

    Energon Powerlinx was a crazy idea, but toy engineering probably wasn't ready for it then. Maybe now we are?

    Funny thing is that ER Starscream is the only Character carrying over from SIEGE that I might buy. And that's only for his Jet mode. I give it a 45% chance. I still think this ER mold itself is really meant for the Coneheads and Welcome Party characters anyway...

    That ER Optimus has a zero % chance, UNLESS he ends up on sale for $25-$30 later down the road (Same as the current Shockwave).

    Unfortunately only as a two-pack with Smashdown, not solo. I already have Smashdown, and don't really need another one.
    I'm picking it up, of course, since I can't find him solo anywhere right now, but it would have been nice to have the option on one of the online retailers to get him by himself, especially for troop building.

    Glad you said something about BBTS having him, as it made me check again and they finally also posted Rung/Singe and Ratbat+Rumble/Direct-hit+Powerpunch preorders.

    energon powerlinx was basically g1 multiforce without the full combiner mode

    why would the welcoming committee be made from the earthrise mold? they never went to earth so they should be done from the siege mold.

    "As Hoist watched Prime study Teletrann-1’s monitor, he could see how the stress of coming to Earth had altered the steel antennae that framed his leader’s face. They were now about even with the crest at the center of Optimus’s head, when before they had been a little longer. And speaking of that crest, Hoist noticed that the silver slats at the front of it now numbered six instead of seven. The seventh one wasn’t lost to damage. It was now just as if it had never existed, which is the sort of thing that happens as robots age. Also, Hoist noticed that Optimus now had light-piping. Hoist wasn’t sure how war or stress or intergalactic travel had caused that, but it was an unmistakable change from the Optimus he had known back on Cybertron...”

    That's a good looking Optimus by Generations line standards... I don't see hollowness in the arms or legs.

    Agreed. I love F15 Starscream just as much as the next guy, but the robot mode of SIEGE Starscream is just too good and unique to be replaced with a more...... "ehh" looking one just becuase it transforms in to F15.

    *Then proceeds to make assumptions*

    Pretty sure Hasbro has focus groups that determine what kids are interested in.

    :) 

    I can do condescending smilies too.

    Are these the same (not final) pics Hasbro revealed before? I appreciate Prime's yellow eyes, but not thrilled with the blue arms.

    After they made his box, the rest of the leader class money went to making a dang nice a voyager.
