That's fair, but it wasn't a Gigawatt situation like many seemed to assume.
I think I’m gonna do that with this one.
Very true. A lot of people seem scarred by it.
Gonna re-up my previous comment: Don't feel too bad if you missed out on the Netflix Soundwave. There is no way Hasbro and Takara would leave that mold as an Exclusive to Netflix. Same with Bee, who we already saw on the Kingdom teaser.
There's gonna be G1 stuff hanging out with our new animal buddies next year. Inferno, Soundwave, and Bee are likely part of that.
Honestly I've never pre-ordered from Walmart, just seems like a lot of people had problems.
I'm Jewish. I feel guilty about everything.
What I am confused about is that bumblebee and Soundwave don't seem to have any of the weathering/battle damage deco that the other Netflix figures seem to have. Does that mean these Walmart releases are going to be the mainstream releases? what would an Earthrise or Kingdom Bumblebee/Soundwave look like compared to these Walmart releases?
The Earthrise-style figures do not have battle-damage.
Toy colors vs. show colors maybe? How does Soundwave look compared to Sunbow?
I'd be willing to bet we'll see these figures re-released at some point. That might be the reason for no additional "weathering" paint.
Great... well if Walmart is my only chance to get an Earthrise Soundwave I hope Soundwave comes back for sale online because I don't see myself doing much toy hunting in person for the rest of the year due to Covid-19 and having family members with health vulnerabilities.
Nemesis Prime. Take away the trailer from the OP and you have 34.
Why is everyone suggesting taking the trailer away? The spoiler box is a Leader class. Just like the last spoiler box (Ultra Magnus). It will be a full Leader figure (that means it would include the trailer if it was OP). Plus, they are releasing OP as the Autobot 3-pack (without the trailer), so why would they have 2 releases of the same mold at the same time?
That's what I was thinking too. I really want Nemesis Prime but we just got Dead Prime as an Amazon exclusive and the Optimus 3-pack in Netflix. It just seems like OP overload to include another Nemesis repaint.
We'll see... At this point I believe Hasbro is open to producing anything that is fan servicey.
Even so, I'm fully expecting the the Earthrise Optimus Prime to be the new MP10. Constantly rereleased with new decos. OP doesn't seem to wear out for the audience in general, even if any specific mold does among some of us. Multiple OPs at different size classes in the same line has happened and recently. Though I don't recall if it has ever happened in the same release set.
Only wanted Bee & Soundwave, sold out! Oh well, I’m sure I’ll have no problem finding them on the shelves much like Wave 1 Netflix characters.
At first I was bummed about missing the Soundwave pre-order, I got everything else... But then memory recall zaps to life, and while I had pre-ordered everything from Wave 1, I wound up cancelling all of them as I found them in store while the online pre-order remained in eternal limbo.
It's nice to have the "security" of a pre-order, but it's going to be a few months anyway, so no fear here of not getting one.
Yep I preordered what I wanted from Walmart but if I find them in store first I’ll be canceling my online order.
