    Man this is getting outrageous, first they sell deluxes as voyagers, now they're selling them as leaders!

    Sooo let me get this straight. They took arachnias limbs to assume make her more screen accurate. Yet they replace nemesis primal with the screen accurate kingdom primal figure..... Also why is bumblebee not touched in any of these wasn't he like hard to get or something?

    You're thinking of the Netflix VW Bumblebee. This Bumblebee is the only way to get an Earthrise Cliffjumper redco as Bumblebee (unless you do a headswap on Selects Hubcap then pait the shoulders black and want to worry about all the yellow paint).

    To be fair, Hasbro did say they were working to reduce plastic on the box with the new lines. Shockwave is just going green.

    That Shockwave is off on an adventure to discover the meaning of friendship with Woody, Mr. Potato Head, and Bo Peep.

    I saw this at target yesterday, it’s not really a repack, more like someone trying to steal 37C24B66-EC75-4C7A-9FDE-80ADF5A245CE.jpeg

    I really hate how Hasbro nickels and dimes you. Of course, you have to buy the Headmaster head separately :(

    Looks like Hasbro's use of less plastic is backfiring lol. Doesn't matter to them as they've already been paid by the stores.

    OMG It's a new plastic syndrome where the toy disintegrates before you even buy it.

    I don't know what's more sad, the repack or they straight up just left poor Daniel in the box.
