    The only reason I'm kinda pissed that Hasbro is taking this long to reveal these is that the designers don't get to reveal them first. Leaks always happen and there are usually 1-3 figures that get out before the stream, but this time EVERYTHING leaked.

    Yeah I can’t remember the last time literally everything they had to show off leaked early. I remember last year everything but one of the Insecticons leaked, but at least there was something new to show. This is just sad.

    They should’ve done a stream with just wave 2 of Legacy:United. Then the upcoming livestream should’ve revealed wave 3 of Legacy:United early before the leaks happen.

    That's the issue. There's hardly any surprise anymore.
    We get listings, descriptions, leaked product pics.
    It's honestly getting a bit tiresome.

    I'm genuinely curious what the cost breakdown is on removing a construction step and adding a paper bag vs installing the piece and adding plastic windows is. I can certainly appreciate the desire to be more environmentally conscious, but I would like a return to plastic windows.

    Can I just say that I really love that autobot tissue paper? I first saw it when I picked up Earthspark Deluxe Twitch, and I saved it. I\'d love to get a roll of that or big sheets to use for gift wrap. Has there been a Decepticon shipped with parts wrapped in tissue? Is there a Decepticon version? Random and tangential, I know, but that\'s how I roll.

    Well, at least it’ll be easy for when they make Swerve. New head and chest panel. Hopefully the ehobby GoBot Smallfoot has a toy accurate head.

    Animated Bee is getting repacked to take the place of Sureshot. I forget which repack is taking Core Dinobot's place. I think Bouldercrash?

    For the longest time I thought the open packaging discussions were overblown, but I’m starting to agree with the “bring back plastic windows” crowd. The figure looking incomplete in its regular packaging crosses a line that could very well affect sales, and I'm finding the tissue paper has just been a very easy way for kids or new collectors to miss the accessories entirely and even throw them away. The Autobot insignias certainly help, but yeah I think it's time they drop the open packages and just let the figures look good and complete in their packaging.

    They already acknowledged that we saw them. The stream is essentially a review and revealing hidden features or lore(like Malleus Minotaurus being Solus' assistant on the run from Insecticons) and them going up for preorder later.

    Just checking, I know Gears open chest is a reference to the G1 cartoon but is the chest openning also part of the transformation or not?

    I love that Wave 2 is already showing up, when I still haven't seen a single store in my U.S. state that has stocked Wave 1 deluxes. I know online retailers have had them for a while, but nothing Deluxe at brick and mortar.
