    Isn't SS86 about screen accuracy not toy accuracy? Wtf happened to Bumblebee... I guess VW wouldn't give them the license?

    Straxus looks good, shame they didn't remold the forearms to give him covers. Will have to buy an upgrade for that. Excited for Slipstream, the Windblade looks good but have no interest in the character, so hoping to pick that up.

    VERY excited to finally get Steeljaw! I ended up preordering him within minutes of seeing the E-Mail from Hasbro.

    I think Steeljaw the one to get in this group for G1 enthusiasts. He apparently even comes with a loudspeaker for Blaster to hold.

    Springer looks pretty much exactly like his Siege release without the battle damage, so if you don't have that one, this one would be a good one to pick up.

    Bumblebee looks like he was supposed to be Cliffjumper but at the last minute was changed. The alt mode is really telling, as the lines are very angular and do not follow the curvature of the traditional bug model. His alt mode really does look like Cliffjumper with VW parts slapped on. I think either the Netflix or the Masterpiece figures scratch the G1 Bumblebee itch better.

    The comic line characters being Pulse membership locked while the other releases aren't is getting annoying. Can't get Steeljaw and Straxus in the same order because one sells out before the other is up for sale. Same issue as Vector and Grimlock last time around.

    What I cruel world I inhabit that I have to be approaching my 30's to finally get a Decepticon Trooper figure, and at the right class too!

    Hasbro finally giving TF fans cannon fodder soldiers after giving them all to GI Joe and Star Wars since time immemorial. Skywarp for Seekers, Troopers for ground assault. Decepticons finally have the land and air superiority they've always boasted about.


    Oh and uh Bumblebee, Springer, and Straxus look great.

    It is pretty screen accurate.

    Yeah but now they're actually using the packaging art instead of the first thing that comes up when you google search the character

    Every Generations Earth Bumblebee we’ve gotten has convinced me I made the right call using the MP 1.0 on my shelf instead. He’s taller than Cliffjumper, but similar height to the other deluxe minibots.

    Didn't BMac hint at it by saying that his shirt had Buzzsaw on it?

    Oh, and Happy Belated Birthday BMac!

    Am I missing something? That's pretty much Siege Springer without the battle damage correct?

    Had no problem here in the UK pre ordering Straxus after I’d ordered 3 of the none Pulse membership figures an hour beforehand.

    How exactly is the Takara one more effort?

    Not in this case, this Bumblebee exists to replicate the look of Bee in the show/movie.

    It exists so that retailers can order best selling characters all year round, to satisfy demand of kids/families

    Slipstream will look like that. They are no longer using random images.

    Slight retool.

    When they say the deluxe g1 Optimus is based on the original toy, does that mean it's just the articulated version or totally new mold?

    Got Straxus & Steeljaw, the only ones I wanted.

    Excited for Slipstream though, number one want out of Wave 4.

    I do hope with Steeljaw, Frenzy, & Rumble this means Hasbro will eventually give us a SS 86 Core Ramhorn, Ravage, Eject, & Rewind. I want to be done with the cassette bots. (I highly doubt we’ll get Overkill or Slugfest)

    New head, new shoulders, new back, new chest, and new accessories. Though when I first saw him, I thought the same thing.

    What makes me the happiest is they changed the propeller sword. That original propeller wasn't great.
