    Deepcover in a generations line before an MP would be so hilarious at this point. Wouldn't object to it though as it'd go nicely with Magna Convoy and some of the Botcon bots.

    Assuming this is a second wave if Netflix siege, I reckon I'll never see it at retail due to the overwhelming shelfwarming power of Sideswipe, Hound, and Chromia.

    That Elita is probably another Chromia mold. Im likely going to pass on that and keep the one I have. I know people hate the mold but its good enough for me.

    It’s a shame I’ll never get any of these, since even the current Netflix wave isn’t showing up on their website, and even if the closest Walmart wasn’t a barren wasteland in terms of toys, it’s over 30 minutes away, so I can’t justify a stop unless I’m already heading that direction.

    I swear on my great grandfather\'s grave, if they make Bumblebee a retool of fucking Cliffjumper, I am going to lose my fucking mind.

    I hope this Elita-1 figure is decent.

    I am hating the Netflix figure line being that it is a Walmart Exclusive. I'm ok with the repaints so far but if they are going to start releasing new characters I will be a very steamed monkey :mad:

    Pretty sure Smokescreen had a new head.

    When do we expect these toys to arrive? Hasn't been an ER Bumblebee announced, and it looks to me they have everything scheduled for this year except maybe a third Leader wave and exclusives. So either they're adding a fifth figure to one of these deluxe waves, or he doesn't arrive until 2021.

    I can understand where you come from on that. Only reason some people might grab the Netflix stuff is "if you never got it the first time, here's your chance again". I know people back in the day complained about repaints at the time but...if there was a REALLY good figure you heard great things on but you couldn't get it...there is no shame in getting the repaint. The issue I see with a majority of the Netflix stuff is that

    A: Most of the Autobots are already well...still in stores same with the cons.

    B: This is more of a second chance deal where you never got a mold that showed up here.

    Like with me I never got Refraktor here in my stores but I really want Scrapface since he looks so odd and interesting. Think of the Netflix line as a "You never really got the first go around" line. Hell it has the best repaint of Megatron in...well...damn ages.

    Why? As long as they properly retooled him into a Volkswagen it would be pretty accurate.

    It almost seemed like they chose the figures that shelfwarm the most. Chromia shelfwarmed from around Wave 2 to Wave 4 for me. Hound has shelfwarmed from Wave 1 onwards. Sideswipe started shelfwarming for me after Wave 5. Megatron started shelfwarming around Wave 3 or 4 for me and every target and walmart has like 3 of them.

    Bumblebee as a saucer! Cybertron Wheeljack! New molds and sculpts for WalMart exclusives! Do you smell it? That's hope! Hope is in the air!

    Look there, on the horizon! Do you see it? That's crushing disappointment headed your way.

    Yeah but did Refraktor peg warm? He sure as Hell didn't where I live...Mirage maybe...MAYBE if it was during the Holiday 2019 shopping season...but You might have a good point...

    They already stated it won't be and even if it was I wouldn't mind since I think Cliffy is the best release so far in ER.

    You've got Smokescreen, Prime, Starscream, and Megs carried over from Siege, and Smokescreen wasn't on shelves in the states. The rest of the deluxes and up are new figures that weren't in Siege.

    Refraktor shelfwarms to this day over here... remaining to taunt me after I went absolutely nuts searching for three of him when the Wave came out.

    Yeah true....only way you could only get Smokescreen was through selects (Which can we all agree was dumb of Hasbro...well...being greedy) of course this is gonna be an interesting turn of events once say we see more of this stuff.
