    So from the whole Ark crew minus the 6 Minibots and Optimus Prime, we got 7 out of 11.

    1) Hound
    2) Sideswipe
    3) Ironhide
    4) Prowl
    5) Mirage
    6) Ratchet to be revealed but confirmed
    7) Bluestreak to be revealed but confirmed

    I mean yes, we only have 4 characters left from the Ark that may be in part 2 and 3. Just what are the chances. Just thinking about if part 2 and 3 still stick to all characters we know in Cybertronian form. I'm just thinking because from Prime Wars each part was different in part 1 and 2, then part 3 was all combined.

    Ebay:
    Prime wars was a half baked set of 3 lines with no over arching design imperative, combiner wars and titans return were not originally intended as two parts of a trilogy, this much is evident in initial marketing. War for cybertron however has been marketed as a trilogy from the beginning so I expect them to keep a majority of the design aesthetics the same. The primary reason subline refreshes/name changes happen is to trick retailers into thinking it’s a new toy line anyway

    So glad I checked this thread today - I pre-ordered Soundwave with the intention of repainting him as Soundblaster.

    I thought it was shown that a Soundblaster will be released.
    On the picture with prime, megs and bluestreak you see a black Soundwave which is Soundblaster.

    Well this certainly dampened my excitement of finding the new figure of my favorite Micromaster character.

    8CF7508A-8887-4388-BA9D-C74A0E8ED923.jpeg

    This is literally five seconds out of the package. After one second both legs came off the ball sockets and then as I went to pop them back on he totally fell apart. Looks like the screw that goes through his torso was torqued way too hard and totally busted the shaft that it goes into. Poor Holi. :( 

    Fire truck guy kind of sucks too. His legs fall off, his ladder falls off, his white paint is really rough and he barely holds together in alt mode. Micromasters deserve better than this.

    Collector Store I go to just posted preorders for wave 3 Deluxes. However, they are selling Reflector by the set of 3. Just preordered along with Red Alert.

    I did actually laugh out loud when it happened since I’ve never had a figure literally fall apart in my hands before.

    Thanks :)  That's why I'm glad I checked the page - I cancelled my Soundwave pre-order (which I was going to paint as Soundblaster) because there is a Soundblaster repaint coming.
