    Nah, POTP at least had a full cavalcade of characters, and the ones redone from TR were suitably distinct despite the overall quality decline.

    It’s like Hasbro barely gives a shit about Earthrise...

    The only other thing I could think of is it's an Earth Magnus and Hasbro hasn't revealed that mold yet.

    Either that or Walmart likes Siege a bit TOO MUCH.

    The 35th anniversary figures were hard to find around here. Only 1 of the dozen or so Walmarts here had them, but this one store also had so many copies of each figure (that ended up shelfwarming). It seemed like this one store had all the copies for the area.

    I mean, that would be amazing, but every single other figure in this little batch are repaints. I doubt they'd do a new mold for UM.

    I don't think we'll see another new UM for a while unless they decide to add him to Cyberverse.

    Seriously, Walmart is pushing hard with these exclusives, and yet no Micromaster redecos?

    Could be. I'm glad they're repaints of figures I have for the most part so I don't really want these.

    I find it ironic that they have even more dirt/grime/battle damage paint apps that most of us loathed.

    Then again maybe this is an inside joke from Hasbro to Walmart. If so... well played

    I see that Con Mirage and my mind goes straight to the Christmas Edition e-comic book they did with him. The one where he's basically Ebenezer Scrooge.

    I'm most definitely getting:
    Con Mirage
    Battle Damage Swipe
    Hotlink
    Refractor
    Chromia

    I'm very curious as to what's in the spoiler box.

    Didn’t Walmart drop Micromasters after the first shipment?

    That Hotlink looks very nice.

    I'll just call it Skywarp and not have to hope in vain that Amazon restocks him :)

    Yay! More disappointment! No G2 Megatron at all!

    Guess I have to just make do with the Selects Combat Hero one then. It's a really neat novelty, but I still want the G2 green one.

    Titan Scorponok?
    A jaw-dropping (minus bird mode) Commander Skylynx?
    Leader Doubledealer??
    Voyager Grapple and the F15 Starscream most of us have been waiting for since Classics started?
    Deluxes like Wheeljack, Hoist and Runamuck?
    A freaking Allicon and Quintesson judge????
    A new Datsun mold that destroys the badly proportioned And lamely alt moded Siege version?
    Micromaster bases with robot modes?
    Deeper cuts from the Micromaster teams?

    I get it, theres too many redoes from Siege, and is like to see some new concepts, but SO much of Siege suffered from just utterly creatively bankrupt alt modes and being redoes of figures that had superior (imho) earlier CHUG versions.

    I’m far more jazzed about Earthrise, even ignoring the redoes and Lame partsformers like Megatron, Cliffjumper and Arcee.


    All that said, I am sure this subline exists to support the show - remember how the lame Prime Wars shows trailed the toy lines so far that they were gone when it came out? I imagine this line mitigates that, plus gives Walmart a similar exclusive offering as last years 35th line.

    Earthrise should be less of a problem if season 2 really is going to be out in the fall.

    Definitely wanna pick up Scrapface and Hotlink, as I find a certain charm to figures of generics. Mirage also looks interesting, so that'll be a maybe for me. As for Magnus, I'm expecting Diaclone colors, but I'm hoping it's something completely left field. There's only so much you can do with that mold. Maybe a new trailer to make him look like his enhanced form from MTMTE if he comes with Rung?

    Smart of them to rerelease some Siege figures to coincide with the Netflix show. I'm sure there will be new fans wanting to purchase these. 2020 is shaping up to be another great year with lots of gorgeous toys. We are truly spoiled!
