Wild theory: what if Snapdragon really is leader class?

If the Hasbro display at the convention confirmed him to be voyager, then please disregard. But, if we're going by a listing on a website, it could be wrong just the same as the render on the previous page.

My only faint, circumstantial evidence is the head. It doesn't seem to be showing the white helmet in the little guy's robot mode, but it's on there in Snapdragon's robot mode. It looks like it gets put on there after the head plugs in, much like TR Overlord did, making the head bigger than a voyager's head, and that figure was leader class.

Again, if it's been confirmed to be voyager in any official way, forget I mentioned anything. But just because Apeface and Snapdragon are in the same group, they don't have to be the same size.

Just wild speculation on my part.

Pretty sure it's not that kind of thing. Look at this pic:

It can't be an add-on helmet like the TR Leaders had, because Krunk's legs are very much exposed. The reason you don't see it in the render of Krunk appears to be that Krunk's torso and arms entirely block it from view.
Further evidence against him being a Leader: The size of those Micromasters compared to his own.

I am going to assume that when I pre-ordered at $29.99
SALE PRICE: $19.99 for him through Target and got me an Arcee for 50% off that he is going to be a Voyager.

He might wind up looking like that on the Netflix show, though, and if so, they may have thought that was more important.

Nobody is going to mention Officer Class, Trooper Class or Cyberwave Arcee?

So I will.

What class is Officer class comparable to? Mega? Ultra? Leader? Commander? Supreme???

And I think Trooper is deluxe right?

On Arcee, love her look, her eyes are a bit small, I like them bigger.
Seems like I will be getting at least 2 Arcee's this year.

Is it just me or do Earthrise and Cyberverse look better than the (should be perfect) Masterpiece Arcee?

Cyberverse, maybe. Earthrise, idk. And Earthrise Arcee has the faults she does thanks to trying to cram the MP's already-questionable transformation into a Deluxe.

I don't know about "everybody". The only thing I don't like about MP Arcee is the face. The backpack isn't great, but it's better than Hot Rod's. Cyberverse is better, but that head is so unappealing! Earthrise is the worst of the three, an Arcee action figure hidden in a shell that isn't even properly integrated into the bot mode.

But it's a moot point, I'm buying all three.

Walmart Preorders for Transformer Toys Revealed at Toy Fair 2020

Postby william-james88 » Sun Mar 01, 2020 11:57 pm

A friend to the site, Kamalethar, spent some time getting all the Walmart preorder links to the newly revealed Earthrise toys, and other recent reveals. The past week was filled with news on where to buy them, but Walmart is a place we did overlook, so we are thankful to him for the legwork. Here is his message:

Just thought it proper to notify you Walmart is now offering the same Transformers Earthrise pre-orders as Target, but...
1. They are not having the sale Target is
2. They at least have the pre-orders ready to be ordered whereas most of Target's and HasbroPulse's pre-orders are already maxed out.

For those that have had trouble getting to the newly released Hasbro pre-orders before they are sold out; here are the links to the currently available Walmart pre-orders...

There seems to be a slight discount on the majority of the listings, but nothing like Target's current sale. The difference being...the Walmart pre-orders are still currently available!

I'm pondering the hell out of that one myself. I have 1 on pre-order for now, but that won't stop me from picking up 2 more in store if I see them.

Couldn't do it Scrapface is the only one that is sold out. Glad I got my orders in for at least 1 of everyone though.

It does make me wonder if everyone else had the same Idea I had. lol
