    But...but...Walmart embargo???
    :rolleyes: 

    Yeah, Target is usually the place to look first. I have found lots of stuff at Walmarts, but never early like at Target. They were awesome to me during Prime/Beast Hunters...

    Love how the Batmobile is just casually sitting there.

    yeah I don’t know it’s just a thing I noticed with GHUG wave one is always released first at targets while Walmart seems to get later waves first. It’s a weird trend but we’ve seen it. Only inaccuracy I can think of is leaderclass shows up at Walmart’s first usually. Magnus and shockwave were first found at Walmart’s and I personally found them first at a Walmart. I know that was the case with combiner wars. I can’t speak for titans return or power of the primes because that was back when toysrus was still around first sightings for them were at toysrus.

    For sure. Sorry I wasn't trying to call you out for not liking the figure. Your post just spoke to me because I was going into my unboxing with all those completely valid concerns. Some how though I've come out slightly leaning toward ER while still loving both molds.

    Totally agree with all this. Both great figures just with different strengths. And you're totally right about those butterfly shoulders. So essential for posing null rays. Many times I've been fiddling with ER Starscream expecting the shoulders to work the same way as Siege.

    Now for something completely different...

    The moment Grapple and Hoist realized they'd been duped by the Constructicons.

    Been messing with these two. Grapple is really solid. A bit too much orange so I may look to add some paint here and there. As for the pegs on crane only one is a bit snug. Hoist, while hollow in a lot of areas, is just pure joy. Love the character and love that wave 1 of Earthrise has helped to fill out the Autobot science division.

    I hope someone does one. The stock one looks hideous to me. That's the only thing I don't like about him.

    oh Dr Wu will do one and they’ll be more than happy to charge $15-$20 for it making that $20 deluxe $35-$40. I’ll pass on that

    got grapple today and can confirm the right foot hole was much tighter than the left. i widened both foot holes and while the connection is a bit loose now id rather it be loose than too tight and breaking

    Don’t have either Grapple or Hoist but wonder if Grapple can hold Hoist’s nozzle.

    I can't find Earthrise figures on Toped or Shoppe (IN only)? I hope they won't skip Earthrise Wave 1 in Indonesian.

    Anyone notice that Earthrise Starscream’s box art uses the Siege mold as it’s basis?
    That’s pretty hilarious.
