    I would rather pay 20 for a perfect Cliffjumper than one that's needlessly large

    So i'm guessing Optimus is E11. Considering his leader class status. E2 could likely be an battlemaster.

    I'm assuming they're judges, so a 2 pack would kinda suck as ideally, you'd want a tribunal.
    Here's what I am hoping for: Deluxe size G1 accurate Quintesson judges. The extra cost from the Voyager price point covers fully articulate tentacles, whatever appropriate flight stand or effects part and maybe an accessory or two. I'd also buy a Quint scientist or two and many many Alicons and Sharkticons (both should be multipacks...and a Junkion multipack while we're at it, 2 slightly different molds packed together?) I'd consider buying others, Bailiffs, Executioner...

    Any word on a bulk pack of effects bits? I'd also love some smoke effects bits. Like blasts of smoke similar to Omega Supreme's effects parts but all smoke for backblasts/engines and more billowy effects for smoking guns and wounds.

    I think at NYCC Warden said that if there's lots of remind they might release effects packs. IMO the best way to do them would be a battle master repaint with a bunch of effects, exclusive to Pulse.

    I was originally just thinking iconic weapons like Ultra Magnus’ G1 gun or Arcee’s pistols or Hound’s other gun or stuff typically excluded. One gun and 3-5 effects for $8-10.

    I’m now thinking it might be better to have a big pack — like 2-3 of every effect — for $30 in one color. And sell different color packs.

    But they need to address the problem that the acid or plasticizer in the effects parts eats paint and may melt ABS plastic from prolonged exposure.

    Well, of the Mercenary cards revealed for the trading card game, one of them was Deadlock, which might hint at a Deadlock figure in the future, and then a redeco into Drift (possibly Selects) like someone else on here said.

    I really thought they’d have done a slight redeco of the TM and a Repugnus redeco at a minimum.

    It would have been satisfying retool with minimum cost. Pity Hasbro decided otherwise.
    They might as well give him a unique mold at this point.
    I really like that idea of Horribull redecoed intoa Terror Dog for the Ghostbusters crossover.

    Likewise Fangry could have been made from Grotusque.

    I feel like Botcon would have done that and invested in a new head and gun tail for Weirdwolf to make Horribull.
