    Oh my bad.

    It seemed from the last page of so people were claiming that they knew, and we just didn't bother to properly read the product description.
    I couldn't deduce who it was they were talking about it being just by those comments.

    Nobody knows yet. The only thing we know for sure is it's a Decepticon because the logo is on the outside of the box (the Magnus spoiler box had an Autobot logo on the box) and that the Cybertronian on the outside of the box says "Fangtron Giza". Giza is a Battlemaster/Minicon/Micron/Whatever typically associated with Nemesis Prime so that has a lot of people speculating it could be him, but there's nothing definitive otherwise.

    A lot of people thought it was Nemesis Prime because the figure comes with a Battlemaster called "Giza," whose first appearance (I think) was with POTP Nemesis Prime. But that speculation has died down since the Netflix series had no sign of Nemesis, and it's not like a Battlemaster is required to only come with their partner (Skywarp had Fracas and Schrute, after all).


    It's probably just Shockwave since he was in the show.

    Well, it's still possible (outside of no leader really fits the transformation steps) as Nemesis could show up in the Earthrise portion and this is the War for Cybertron Trilogy Netflix line... not the War for Cybertron Siege line. There's no mention of Siege, Earthrise, etc. on the packaging for the line. It's all-encompassing for the trilogy. Now, is it? Don't know. Nothing really matches the transformation scheme as I said. And, as you said, there's nothing that says a new version of Giza has to be a bird that becomes a sword or has to come with Nemesis Prime. Honestly, considering how quickly Ultra Magnus leaked I'm surprised this one hasn't yet.

    Yep, we've known the solid packed thing since he first leaked. Haven't heard anything about walgreens yet, we usually know their exclusives by now so I kind of doubt they got one this year

    That was in regards to people trying to say that the spoiler boxes was a bait and switch, saying that hasbro implied or outright said that the figure inside was the spoiler when that was never the case

    yeah, I feel like the last couple times we've know about those WAAAAAYYY in advance...

    I remember reading on here that the Toy Buyer(??) at Walgreens was a big fan, and that's how they got cool exclusives, he'd go out and work the deals: wonder if he's not there anymore?
    Seemed like those sold well based on my purely circumstantial observations.

    I think we usually found out between Oct and Feb what the walgreens exclusive was and they usually release during Oct. Would be cutting it close this year, though the state of the world has kind of thrown everything off

    I still feel like that the spoiler box will be a corrupted colored ultra magnus from the show

    I definitely agree, I’m hoping that super megatron’s release will stay as September though

    Makes sense. Get it out the door in Q4 to try and close out the year strong. And sets them up to start rolling out Kingdom in the new year.

    Hasbro's still releasing Walgreens exclusives. They just started releasing Marvel Legends Iron Man 2020, and they have a Marvel Legends Classic Moon Knight that should be coming out soon as well. Nothing for Black Series yet as far as I can tell, though.
