    I’m not that sure if it’s talking about the Autobot clones instead of the target Decepticon clones though. However, since it is listed under the catagory of selects, I always assumed it is also a selects release despite it not being specifically listed as one.
    That said, I never checked the number to see whether it is indeed the Autobot clones so I might be wrong.

    Yeah, that list had some things out of place: it even says "Generations Clones" not "Generations Selects Clones" – 98% sure that's the Decepticon clones listed there.

    Yes, I just noticed that exhaust was listed as a normal Earthrise release in that leak despite it actually being a gs release, so the clones are probably the target ones.

    TBH, no offense to those wanting a full set of ER diaclone repaints, but since TT is taking care of most of those with Masterpiece, I am kind of against doing every "mandatory" repaint with every line. For example, I am very tired of generic "Nemesis/Black Prime" and even "Delta Magnus"/Blue Prime repaints of every prime mold, I would like to see them at least tweak it in a fun and surprising way, say for example, repaint ER Voyager Prime into a "Fire Guts" or "Nucleon Quest" (as opposed to the teal/Decepticon standard version) variant.

    Same with Black Ironhide, it's cool, and not to jump into a he-who-must-not-be-named's movie controversy, but say tweaking the colors more in line with the 2007 movie scheme, along with a lime green ER Ratchet would be a cool idea JIMO.

    If we do get an ER Barricade, I'm also personally hoping we'll get silver letter/black outline "POLICE" tampos on the sides like the `07 film--just little "extra" nods in these repaints to acknowledge different versions of the characters. I know it would be probably too much to ask, but if they threw in an all silver version of Siege Frenzy, that would be rad.

    Ihear you with the various Nemesis Primes....
    ...but we've never actually gotten one of those aside from the pricey Japanese exclusive Magna Convoy and the MP Ultra Magnus redeco.

    We are WAAAAAY overdue a legit CHUG Delta Magnus...

    I'm not sure how many people know this, but after the last one, the E-Hobby exclusive one, E-Hobby sent out an e-mail to E-Hobby past purchasers specifically asking those who did NOT buy Delta Magnus why they didn't buy it, and what specifically they didn't like about it. It was weird, since I had bought several exclusives from them up until that point, but had never had a follow-up survey like that. Also, he was sold for real cheap at Super Festival which E-Hobby always has a booth at, as surplus stock, so I can only imagine sales numbers were really bad...

    I personally am not a huge fan of the color scheme, just not jazzy enough for my taste, but I just wanted to throw out this tidbit for those who may not have heard about this news from Japan at the time. Interestingly/coincidentally, that was also the last E-Hobby exclusive, then Takara switched over to doing Legends EX/Gen Selects on their own web store.

    That's a shame to hear, personally I didn't buy it because it was massively expensive, I would buy a leader class one though.

    Well... unless this goes on longer than five Tuesdays... we pretty much already know what we're going to see: Roritchi, Bugbite, G2 Megatron, Hot House, and Ratchet. I'm down for Bugbite and Ratchet definitely. Pass on Roritchi and Hot House since I don't buy Modulators or Weaponizers. G2 Megatron is really going to depend on which deco this is since it's most likely the Earthrise Megatron mold.

    Additionally, I think it might have not done well since it was 1) a redeco of Classics Optimus Prime and not something contemporary to the time it was released, and 2) because it only represented the inner robot of what is known now as Delta Magnus, and not the “armored up” version that I think his fans would prefer.

    As for the next 5 Tuesdays, I agree with many of the others that it’ll be the five figures we already know about through leaks, meaning personally I am in for 3 out of the 5 of them.

    So the first one is today at noon, right?

    Out of the leaks, I'm definitely in on Ratchet and Hothouse, and maybe G2 Megatron.

    Nice! Ratchet is a definite as my local Walgreens never got the siege version, Hot House is also a definite as I'm getting every base to add to my MM city. I just like G2 colors, I just need to see how they do it. Bugbite just didn't scream to me, I don't really need a second bee, and Roritchi is anothor maybe.

    Bugbite is a definite for me since I have Nemesis Prime, Barricade, Con Mirage, Exhaust and Nightbird, so he'd fit nicely with the dark ark crew. Ratchet is a must because it just looks like a good mold and I love the Siege version. Hothouse and Roritchi are maybes, just not entirely sold on em yet and for G2 Megatron, if it was a dedicated mold I'd be in, but it'll just be a recolored Earthrise mold that bears little resemblance to G2 Megatron, so I can't see myself being very interested unless I decide it can be used as Megastorm
