    So the chest plate for Gears is detached by default? Good to know, and nice foresight on Hasbro's part, if it's an especially easy piece to remove.

    Fucking hell.
    Dear Hasbro corporate, you really screwed up.

    Should've started showing them off earlier.

    Shhhh! Quiet everyone! We've got to let the Hasbro team think they're revealing these toys on Thursday! So everyone just pretend that we haven't seen them and they haven't appeared in the wild!

    I was just about to say "someone stole Gears's chest piece" until I saw that they packaged it separately in the box.

    I still get the feeling people might see the figure in stores and think someone did just that thanks to the open packaging.

    Why does it matter though? You know it exists, you’re on this website everyday. It got sighted in Singapore of all places, not exactly a major market. How does this affect you? You’re going to get an official reveal in 3 days. This isn’t costing Hasbro corporate anything except the ability to be first. The people who will be excited about an official reveal will also not know nor care it was sighted in another country. Like do you work for Hasbro? Where’s this energy come from

    Based on how they were acting last week.... it may not be up to the TF team. They seem legit unhappy they dont get to reveal the toys. They had been really good until United. Also, at the end of the day.... It doesnt matter a ton.

    That’s an odd choice with Gears. I feel like making that joint a pin makes more sense than every copy of the figure looking like a part has been stolen in the packaging?

    It's probably an engineering choice, possibly to reduce cost, but it is going to lead to a lot of Gears on shelves with people thinking that he's missing part of is chest. Open Boxes being a dumb idea strikes again.

    Good that Gears's chest won't get stolen out of the box, but there's a side-effect of it looking like it's already been stolen. Is displaying an incomplete toy really preferable to bringing back the plastic windows, or making the opening smaller, or covering the opening with bars or a honeycomb/holepunch pattern?

    At the very least they could put "assembly required" somewhere noticeable on the box, or add a picture of the separated part to let people know that it's actually in there.

    Considering how the part looks to have paint on the chest, i'm super glad it's not attached underneath that plastic zip-tie (ie. Haslab Saber & Leo's chest chrome)

    I feel like the wait for preorders is going to be really short for this wave. Or like, online retailers are just going to have it available after the official reveal.

    All future tfs will have their heads packed separately from now on.

    Because Hasbro should be on a more reasonable time table with reveals before these things are even on shelves anywhere.
    Which is clearly not the case here. All of Wave 2 is becoming available via other retailers and Hasbro's dragging their asses.
    On just pre-orders.

    That shouldn't happen.
    Pardon me for being disappointed by their overall handling of things lately.

    That still doesn’t actually affect anything, you know they’re coming so you’re gonna get them either way. You have seen gears and shard fully now. All of wave two is available which is cool, I have sandstorm on the way from CMD. Anyone who’s is this thirsty for these figures already knows everything about them

    Any bets that these will be properly revealed on Thursday?
