    When my son's became 10 and 12 their love for toys ended quickly. All they cared about at that point were video games and sports. Now they're college bound, have their own jobs and both saving up for cars. So this TF hobby has been strictly mine for years now so I buy whatever figures I want.

    Yeah, I wonder if this Megatron was made to be G2 first. I really do like him and that ridiculous spear better in this deco.

    Sandstorm I'm just pleased I expected this pattern and even picked him. With the shift to beast wars I highly doubt they're gonna keep it going through Kingdom, but you never know. There are plenty more seeker decos.

    Not sure where you live, but it’s still available on Entertainment Earth. Pulse is just one site selling it.

    As others have stated. The preorders are getting spread out across all of the online stores. Get him from one of those if you missed Pulse.

    It's says he's a pre-order, but if you go to check out he's unavailable.

    This is the first seeker I actually kind of want, that shark face is way too cool.

    Haha I edited my post as soon as I read back to the 3AM comment, stale info! Still surprised how fast Hot House went but not Bug Bite.

    Megs looks like he's wearing purple wrestling tights. But that's my honest opinion.

    To be honest, I probably would have got Earthrise Megatron, as long as it wasn't the regular deco. However a G2 deco has been on my wish list for a while.
    I'm not bothered about Earthrise G2 Megatron not having a shoulder cannon. However if Takara manages to remold 'that ridiculous spear' into Reverse Convoy's 'Reverse Blaster', I'll be down for it. Better yet, if they retooled the Earthrise Megatron-based robot body so that you could have two distinct forms (kind of like Super Megatron) to reflect the two different personalities - (Reverse Convoy = Vanilla, Rebirth Megatron = Lots of flip out weapons, switchable faction symbols, etc), I'd get two.


    In case anyone's wondering, I'm talking about this guy.

    Not sure If they would view Hotlink as having enough name recognition for a double dip. But I could see just a two pack of Sunstorm and Bitstream, and maybe even throw in Nacelle for the three pack of the “missing” welcoming committee members.

    I'd be down for a Reverse Convoy too, but come on TR Megatron with two Headmasters, both with the Megatron looking body. Hell there's even a way to shoulder mount the cannon and put the unused Headmaster in the back of the cannon.

    I'm still a bit mystified by the popularity of Seeker repaints...

    This new one is nice, but I feel like the deco is wasted on a Ramjet body.

    Anyway, with so many reveals, my new strategy is to wait things out a little. You never know what's coming NEXT week, and Im not made of $$$! :lol

    Pretty weak attempt at the shoulder cannon. I didn't realize that the ER mold had no pegholes on the backpack, which makes this even more disappointing for me.

    I guess the point is well it's G2 and he had purple tights. Man, G2 was just psychodelic.

    It would probably look better if they attached the fusion cannon to his shoulder cannon. G2 Megatron does not need a Fusion cannon. Thats what I did with the combat hero version of the Siege mold. Im suprised theres no peg holes. But it looks like an easy 3rd party fix to mount that thing as a proper shoulder cannon. Im sure the 3D print guys will hook us up. Ive been so impressed with every add on set I get from China.

    I thought new pre-orders weren't supposed to go live until Tuesdays coming up? Now Sandstorm is sold out and it isn't even the 25th so what is BBTS supposed to reveal on the 25th if Pulse jumped the damn gun?

    Royally pissed off at the utter shitshow this became, really wanted to get Sandstorm too, come 2021 there better be a shit ton of these on TRU shelves in Canada or I will be extremely pissed.

    And another thing, fix your damn site Hasbropulse, if it's sold out stop letting me add it to cart you maggot brains.
