Yes
I am very much interested in Botcon 2016 Customization Class Medix, Shattered Glass Ratchet, G2 Ratchet, and Marvel Comic Ratchet, willing to pay fair price, PM if interested in selling.

Looks like the Energon cubes will have 5mm posts so they can be properly held.

Are there any sites with international shipping that usually carry the Pulse exclusives? Or are those of use who live in the "wrong" continent screwed?

Was never a fan of the Spinister mold, never understood why people went so nuts over it, so for Rotorstorm to just be a straight repaint, majorly disappointed.

Good thing it'll be too over priced and hard for me to get anyway, so that eases the disappointment.

Yep, jumping on Hasbro Pulse pre-orders has some nice advantages in that they occasionally screw up the initial price. I got all of wave 2 of Siege Deluxes at $9.99 each when Pulse first put them up. I think Ectotron had a similar initial price mistake. It even happened with Siege wave 1 back when it was HasbrToyShop. The mistake price does tend to sell out/get fixed quickly.

ROTORSTORM features deco and a head sculpt designed to resemble the look of the ruthless and fearless AUTOBOT STRATEGICIAN from the IDW comic books...

Perhaps these are not the final/latest images of Rotorstorm.

Also, the description for Blaster says he stands at 4.5 inches tall. Pretty sure the original toy was quite a bit taller than that. Being a smaller version, do the G1 cassettes fit?

I got to watch part of the display earlier today on my phone, was excited to hear about Rotorstorm, but the execution leaves much to be desired. Really? No new head?

I'm excited for the accessories, that made the Centurion worth getting. And I got them at the $19.99 price too.

Tigertrack looks nice, but is a pass for me. I've already got 2 of the exact mold and a 3rd that is only slightly different in the head, I don't need a 4th.

Dead Prime is dead Prime.

Blaster is happening, nice shirt though.

RED Soundwave, eh, he also exists like the rest of the REDs so far

I'm wondering if we're in for another Prime Fist scenario? I really hope they do his proper head. He's simply not Rotorstorm without the Brett Hart shades.

Ironically enough, the only thing I found remotely interesting from this reveal was the GI Joe Classified Cobra Commander. Although he does seem in need of an alternate hooded head.

None of the TF reveals did anything for me and the RED things are completely redundant, in light of existing model kits and figures.

Here's another thing I've been wondering about. We know Exhaust and Greasepit are GS11 and GS12, and then we see Tigertrack and Rotorstorm at GS18 and GS19. The Centurion Drone doesn't have a number, and we know Hubcap is coming- let's just say that takes up another two slots... that still leaves GS15-GS17 unaccounted for so far.

Any ideas on who they might be?

There was a discussion on this with more detail in the Selects thread, but the Listing for Centurion doesn't actuallt say Selects like the others. The general line of thinking is that he might be similar to the Reflector 3-pack that was not numbered and not part of Selects.

Oh thanks! I thought this was tied to the Selects thread.

WFC Centurion and Weapons Pack Revealed To Be In Demand Toys Exclusive in UK

Postby ZeroWolf » Sat Jun 27, 2020 3:40 pm

Motto: "My past no longer binds my future..."
Weapon: Battle Blades
Greetings Seibertronians! Following on from yesterday's Fan First Friday, fellow Seibertron users, Blackeyedprime and Callum Martin, have let us know that the revealed Centurion Drone and weapon pack will be exclusive to In Demand Toys for those in the UK. He is priced at £30. They have Pre-Orders open now for him and state he'll start shipping in August.

Centurion is a redeco of Siege Brunt, whose design was inspired by Centurion from the IDW miniseries Transformers: Stormbringer. The weapons pack features a host of G1 nods, like Sideswipes jet pack, Prime's roller, and Megatron in his G1 Gun form, waiting for Starscream to come along and wield him.

Image

Are you one of the fans with a preorder in for this set? Looking forward to the weapon pack? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

No order limits either which is cool but ones enough for me, lots of accessories for figures I dont have :) the tiny optimus might get used as an oscar (but even then it may be too small) kinda weird that it is to with unicron when he was taking a nap at the time.

Oh like you wouldn't be paying $30 or more buying half that from third parties, instead of the extra $10 it is here.
Are you talking about them not including the additional accessories with the figures to begin with? That's just the same cheaping out on CHUG accessory counts for the sake of uniform profit margins that they've been doing since Classics began in 2006. This is the first time they've offered any official option to supplement that, and these accessories were almost certainly created after the molds were cut, in response to fan demand.

Or are you just annoyed at the weapons only being sold with the Centurion drone instead of on their own?
