    I didn't say you couldn't like the stupid lights, I just think they deserve to go

    Question: With Optimus all folded up, how many Micromasters do we think would fit in his trailer?

    looks to me like they end up inside his chest.
    the hinge is visible, but may not be obvious since it seems to be only partially painted(the upper part is clear blue in truck mode, but red in robot mode)

    It's definitely not the arm, though I may have confused the back of the headlights as the side window. There's definately something interesting going on with this one.

    looks like it’s just the bumper and wheels on his back. 27EFC120-DDFE-41AC-A968-24BE62B24B05.jpeg

    They look pretty flush with his back too. So its either a really tight fanny pack, a medium length coat, or he has a weird butt like MP Ironhide.

    Well, count me in on Earthrise. Well, some at least. Grapple, Starscream, and Cliffjumper are definitely bought. Super excited for them.
    Curious to see what else is released in the line. I'd love to see a new Jazz since the PotP one did nothing for me. If Cliffjumper is any indication, more Deluxe Class minibots would be cool (considering how good Cliff looks, a Bee retool wouldn't be unwelcome).
    I also foresee a Sunstreaker since we got Sideswipe in Siege. But... I passed on Sideswipe, so I wouldn't mind getting a new Earth mode one. Could be cool if they did something like the Classics version and had the same mold with the torso rotated 180.

    Wonder who else they could make... Who are we missing? Could we see more Earth mode designs of characters we got in Siege?

    warden said at nycc that cliffjumper would not be used for bumblebee and that there are currently no plans for an earthrise sideswipe

    Double awwwww.
    (though regarding a hypothetical Bee, I wonder if they'd end up using the same engineering but remold everything else much like POTP Hun-grrr and CW Silverbolt.)


    Side note: Blitzwing. I want a Blitzwing. Just hopefully not in Leader Class.

    i could see that happening, using the engineering for bumblebee. warden seems to be pretty literal when talking about remolds, so in his eyes hun-grr and chromia would be new molds despite sharing engineering with silverbolt and moonracer

    Didn't mention this yet, but I very much appreciate the fact that, as far as we know, Micromasters no longer have forced weapon modes. They're not Minicons, they shouldn't have to be compromised with a mode that they never had in the first place, much like certain other characters from Prime Wars. This is the next step to Hasbro recognizing them as full Transformers in their own right. The next step hopefully will be actual 3mm fist holes ala bayformer/Prime Cyberverse.

    On that note, I do hope that Minicon fans get the accurate Minicon updates they deserve. Till All Are one! <3

    Hate to be the one to break it to you but.... F3D5DBA3-88D7-4540-8466-71F976FFF297.jpeg

    That looks like a 5mm peg used by bigger bots when they are in weapon mode....
