    Fair, but I think given the context that poster was saying clean as more of a case of releasing it in a deco similar to ER Optimus where there isn't any battle damage or extraneous deco choices that make it stand out from regular run of the mill figures.

    Prime looks like sh*t. I'm definitely sticking with my car superior OSKO version. If they had bothered to listen to fans and make one without the [email protected] paint, then I might have been interested (or even make a metallic paint version).

    BB looks "meh". TLTL.

    "fun to reproduce movie scenes" only works for GOOD movies.

    Surprised that these didn't go up on Pulse today. Maybe saving them for Tuesday?

    They may also end up like Takara's Siege Nemesis Prime and not get carried by Pulse

    I was thinking that until JTPrime said that they've been assigned Hasbro product numbers.

    The 80s movie is objectively bad on both story and frankly animation quality outside of "stand out scenes" and was in fact trashed by critics and lowkey flopped, yet no one complained that the nearly 600 dollar Unicron was "replicating a scene from a bad movie".

    Definitely getting Optimus Prime, but really want an Earthrise Optimus with this "perfect finish" approach. JetFire, Doubledealer would also be pretty cool.

    Seeing as how the SS side of the line has mostly been figured out, how confident are we about the WFC side. I see the Prime, Megatron, and Wheeljack, but the other 3 could be a few things. Since we’ve figured out they’re just blackening preexisting stock photos, can we match anything up to the other 3 to get a side by side?

    If Character E is Springer, that's an odd choice, since he hasn't been in the WFC cartoon. Could it hint at his appearance in Kingdom, or is it simply a way to get more use out of that mold?

    He's not from Studio Series but TLK Crosshairs absolutely deserved a spot here. Maybe in a future wave. Fantastic mold but terriblly painted.

    Why did they make the new Netflix WFC Megatron? I don’t think we need a third almost identical thing
