    tbh I was expecting that. Idk why they feel the need to hold on stock that’s ready to be put out. Maybe it’ll be out sooner and the ship date is a temp. Maybe it’s actually out by May or something

    You know Pulse. Stuff that is suppose to ship soon gets pushed back, and stuff that releases months out gets released within weeks of posting. :lol

    Here is the old ER deco of Sunstreaker, I absolutely love the new deco, I think this is going to look so good with the Toyhax set! I hope they come out with a new set for him that includes windows and update the colors on the rest of them.

    I'm a tooner but I can't get behind these painted blue windows. That's not something that should be emulated on a real object. I might paint ER Wheeljack's chest so I can swap his windows over.

    Sunstreaker is a huge improvement aside from the windows. The vivid yellow plastic, and painting the shins black underneath so you don't have yellow poking out from underneath is great.

    Ughhhh I don’t know what to do. I want Hound. Jazz is interesting for the improved solidity. Sunstreaker does look better than ER. But I like my figures matching I don’t want a mismatch of painted and clear and I don’t want to buy everyone again with painted windows.

    Only good thing, most of my WFC Autobots are still MISB. I was waiting to get the whole 84-85 gang before investing in a new display case and unboxing them. If I replace some figures, they still have some value I guess

    Meh. Tempting but I already have half of them and I'm not a fan of the painted windows.

    I really hope the new Sunstreaker yellow looks as good in person as it does in those pictures!

    Appears so. I was going to see if anyone would part with Hound or possibly buy and part out the set myself but I guess that's out of the question. Oh well, guess we'll see if Takara will release Hound by himself.

    Ah, that familiar feeling of resigned defeat when we just press the button because shiny new things.

    We've all been there, and i'll be there myself when i get home from work in about twenty minutes.

    Edit: Hang on - $110 but £115? Hmm...

    Hound alone makes this an order for me, but a better deco for Sunstreaker and opaque windows Jazz. Nice bonus, an actual white Wheeljack, I'm still on the edge about Trailbreaker since I have him too.

    I am somewhat cynical about these "sell outs", after various Pulse restockings!
    Yup, the usual Dollars-into-Pounds but with an additional Fiver on top, just like with the Classified VAMP!

    You already have this problem with SS86 Brawn existing.

    Yes, true. But it doesn’t bother me as much when the parts are not visible in robot mode (how I display my figures). It’s mostly for those that have the windshield on the chest. That’s the eyesore to me.

    I would have just wanted Hound from that 5-pack. Everything else, I already got.

    Pretty sure all 5 of these guys will be getting replaced with the 5 pack versions. Only 2 I’m not sure about are WJ and TB. Though since he's in the back, the lighter grey of TB might show up better.

    (And I guess I'll swap SS86 Ratchet in there while I'm at it!)
