    Please no. I didn't get Legacy Skullgrin because the alt mode is terrible. It's just a slab. With turrets. :redface2:  If it's used as a template for Quake, it better be the mother of all retools.

    Fans are dismissing the minimal changes in favour of Siege Springer. Yet SS86 Blaster has even fewer changes and that's selling like hot cakes. I don't understand this community. :(

    I'm saying when I see people try to eyeball the cost of a new chest and use that to determine exactly how much extra a toy should now cost, it makes me think of someone looking at two points on a map and saying, "It can't be that far, the dots are right next to each other."

    Possibly I'm wrong and the people making guesses are right on. Just strikes me as funny.

    I also hate partsforming, but that's what the backpack connector is for. I also recommend this telescopic gun over the bazooka if you want concealed weapon storage. Even if you have the backpack connector, if can store inside the driver section.

    I hope that statement on the new A-Level releases being readily available is true with how fast preorders sold out.
    Not joining this discussion, I just wanted to say I love this post:lol

    Hahaha well put. I'm in a happy place with my toys and have been since SIEGE. Too bad others aren't. They are entitled to their opinion for sure, but arguing only ruins it for me. I just take the joy where I can find it. This particular livestream wasn't necessarily the greatest ever, but man I am into it. I do think Springer is improved and bulkier. I get the debate over price and it's fair even though I have loved the Leader Execution the last 5 years. I can see people being annoyed, but I will love that toy and love the nod to Devastator!

    Bumblebee is also one I will love and preordered Straxus. Ironically I love him the least since the legs don't follow the geometry of the comic so well, but dig that subline and the comic deco. So I am in. Who is the 4th?? I figure the comic hardcores gotta have that solved by now.

    Pumped for Prime and Quake:)  I am sure Mark killed it.

    Outside of the accessories, here's a visual representation of what got changed and had to have new mold and tooling done on Springer.

    I think they've said before that part of why they haven't done any transmetals is that they're not sure whether or not to use chrome

    I don't have a stream time stamp or anything, but I could have sworn Evan said IF they did Transmetals it would be metallic paint, specifically not vac metal.

    Especially since they've already got a price in mind and are working backwards from there to justify it.

    Late reply, but whatever.

    Starting off.. the Decepticon Soldier… not really enthused about. A retool of the Barricade mold’s sure to go well. I expect this thing to shelfwarm in all honesty. At the least, the color scheme and head are alright to look at.

    On the other side of the coin, Bumblebee looks really good! Looks like a simple yet fun figure, like the other Minibots prior, and will probably replace Netflix Bee for me. The brighter yellows, lack of parts forming (wasn’t a dealbreaker, but certainly a point in this one’s favor), and tiny alt-mode won me over.

    Skywarp… I mean, he’s Thundercracker but purple. Is there more I can really add? Gonna get him, he’s the last of the on-screen Bumblebee characters I need (apart from Camaro Bee and Car Shatter, and the upcoming Bumblebee next year.) The Bumblebee Seeker mold is pretty good too, so there’s that.

    Springer, in all honesty, looks like an upgrade over the Siege figure, at least looks-wise. Is it overpriced for what it is? Yeah, but at least it gives people a chance to get Springer for those who missed him all the way back in Siege or didn’t want the WNR redeco. Reserving final judgement on him until I hear what his transformation is like, because that’s what put me off the Siege figure.

    Feels weird that we were teased Straxus at the beginning of Legacy, he got replaced due to show plans falling through, and now we have the REAL Straxus near the end of the trilogy. Well worth the wait though, he absolutely rocks! Even has the dead eyes. Kinda obligatory that he’d be a Galvatron retool, but I’m not complaining, the Galvatron mold rules. Pre-ordered him.

    But there's a better fan mode out there.

    Works best if you have extra guns. And maybe some Toyhax stickers to seal the deal.

    Now I could be completely wrong about this but here who I think the three cassettes are going to be with Soundwave

    The three cassettes I am guessing are Ravage, Laserbeak and Buzzsaw

    Now you might be asking how do I know and why?

    Well for one Rumble and Frenzy already got SS which I don't see them putting them with Soundwave

    We do know that Ratbat is coming with Ramhorn and Perceptor

    And since Ravage, Laserbeak and Buzzsaw don't have an SS 86 figure yet this would be a good time to include them

    So that is my prediction but I could be wrong
