    So, is it confirmed that these are all specifically for the Siege cartoon? Or is it possible that the remaining figures are for the Earthrise show?

    I'd borderline guarantee they will be for Earthrise/Season 2

    Is there any chance any more Voyager class figures for the Netflix line are getting revealed Friday ?

    Yes I realize there would be listings I just wanted to ask

    Maybe, I saw someone theorizing that since there’s another wave of deluxes there’ll be another wave of voyagers, but we’ll find out on Friday.

    I think it was a mistake on hasbro's part in the first place to put Wheeljack in a vote instead of just releasing him and bumblebee in their cybertronian modes from the episode that literally inspired siege.

    There must be some kind of difference between Earth mode and Cybertronian Wheeljack, they have to do something.

    It'll probably just have battle damage and a paint scheme closer to the show.

    Man I'd love to see a Magna Convoy using the Siege mold.

    If we are getting a new Ultra Magnus, I suspect we'll get one via the Studio Series line, which seems like it'll go using the 86 movie for it's next batch of releases.

    I hope they’re not true. I’d rather more Quintessons and G1-styled versions of characters like Lockdown, Skybyte, Blackout, and some Beast Wars throwbacks than an entire Beast Wars sublime.

    Yea, paint, just like every other netflix release. Wheeljack in the netflix show looks exactly like his earthrise toy except for his paintjob

    I think it's been long enough since we got a proper release of Beast Wars.

    RID2001, Animated, and the Unicron Trilogy would like a word with you.

    Beast Wars has gotten a lot of love compared to the other non G1, non movie eras of the franchise (a 2006 reissue line, Universe Cheetor and Dinobot, Thrilling 30 Rhinox and Rattrap and Waspinator, POTP Optimal Optimus, Masterpiece figures, their own IDW comics, a freaking upcoming movie). And yet their fans are amongst biggest whiners of the franchise.

    Have it be a separate line unto itself. Let WFC remain it is reimagined G1 universe. Still waiting on any Commander Class Decepticons here. Still waiting on a proper Generations Black Convoy/Scourge that isn’t a hard to find exclusive or a dumb headmaster. But do go on about how “underrepresented” Beast Wars is

    5 new chug molds (universe cheetor and dinobot, t30 rhinox, rattrap, waspinator and potp optimal optimus) isn't too far off of what the unicron trilogy has gotten at retail from hasbro. UT has gotten armada starscream (T30), Universe Hot Shot, Galaxy Upgrade Prime and Selects Hot Shot. So BW is up by 1 when it comes to new molds in chug. Sure BW has gotten 2016 Botcon (which was utter shit and should be stricken from memory) and has gotten MP figures, but both parts of the fandom are in similar situations really

    God, I’ve been waiting for someone to finally say that.

    All you’re doing is proving Mr. @Astrotrain52’s point about the BW fandom. I’m pretty sure that... what... six of the six non-g1 Masterpieces counts for a lot. Seriously, BW and UT are in very different situations.

    Agreed.

    Notice I was primarily talking about hasbro, the company that is supposed to be targeting me as an american. Personally I couldn't care less about what takara is doing with MP because those figures aren't for me. And how am I being "among the biggest whiners in the fandom"? I pointed out that in chug both the beast era and unicron trilogy have had similar levels of representation, BOTH deserve more

    The point is you have the option of MP figures whether you choose to buy them or not. Given that Hasbro Pulse (even better Amazonjapan) allows you to import MP BW figures, that’s your choice to not buy them, but you do have an option.

    BW fans also had an entire reissue line, several IDW comics, a BW film coming out, along with representation within the IDW main universe. That’s in addition to both Hasbro and Takara main line toy support.

    With every new Generations imprint, there’s surely a legion of whining BW fans to follow.

    A reissue line over decade ago, IDW comics over a decade ago, a film that may or may not go to production and bastardized representation in the main universe. Yea, BW fans have gotten so much from hasbro recently :rolleyes: 

    Like I said, ALL of the series beyond G1 deserve representation, but don't even try to pretend that BW has gotten anywhere near the level of care it deserves. Yes it's gotten more than other branches of the franchise, but most of what it has gotten has been a flaming pile of shit

    You’re only proving my point :lol 

    Where’s that level of representation for other non-movie, non-G1 media? Much less than what BW has gotten over the years. Please calm down.

    This is just one guy me opinion, but BW hasn’t aged well (IMO worse than G1).
