Official releases of Exhaust, Cordon, and Blue Streak would all be awesome, but I'm also ready to just buy extras and paint them if need be. Speaking of which, if Exhaust is indeed happening, what does everyone think of the odds of a Slicer figure? Because I already have an extra Wheeljack in case that doesn't happen; I just want to know if I should start painting now or wait.

I'd say wait until we know who else we get in Earthrise next to the Clones and Seekers. There's a 3 figure gap between them and Scorponok, the last numerically before the gaps start.

Good Lord! The price went way up. Luckily, I ordered mine earlier on, before the cost doubled. Yeesh.

Looking forward to pairing him up with my G1 Star Convoy (I haven't got the Selects version).

Considering the state of the Australian dollar at the moment, and that Star Convoy was retailing through other online Australian outlets for nearly $130, this is actually a good price for Australians.

Some of the Seacons are back on Pulse for pre-order, listed as shipping next month. Couldn't help myself, I ordered them. I like how they can be arms, legs, and guns with the gun mode actually fitting into the hand itself. Skipped Turtler since I could only get three limbs, gonna use these guys for a funky Abominus.

Stuff like this make me regret not getting Bruticus in any capacity because, man, I'd love to be able to joke about having nonsense like Abomenaticus in my collection.

Well, can you do Comperian or Cybertron Super Scramble instead?

Only Autobot Combiner I got is Volcanicus aka 'The Beast's better cousin'. I've started collecting during TR and am eternally kicking myself in the testicles for not having joined the fun during CW. That said, I can make a one-limbed combiner by attaching Richochet to Elita-1 or POTP Inferno! :lol:

If you don't care about building an iconic combiner and you don't mind an "anything goes" combiner, hunting down combiners limbs in the wild is easy. Flea markets, garage sales, thrift stores.... that is, when the world is not going to hell.

Then, buy a random KO Perfect Effect upgrade kit for the hands and feet and you're set!

You and me are in similar boats. While I was around and ready to collect CW/UW when they were coming out, I deliberately skipped most of CW because I wanted the UW versions instead, but then 2016 was the year that this happened to me, so I had to put my collecting UW on hold to go after all the older stuff. And now, all of the UW boxsets are really pricey on the aftermarket.

Man that stinks, sorry I had no idea. 2016 was kind of a roller coaster for me as well, but I just was patient and got them slowly. To start getting UW sets now would be extremely difficult I'd imagine, but even on eBay loose CW limbs I don't think are too outrageous, while of course MOC ones are quite pricey.

Of course hindsight is 20/20. If I could go back in time I'd definitely do whatever it took to go to Botcon 2016 and register myself, wife and 2 kids all for the custom Ratchet class so we could have all 4 variants. I mean how many fans can say they have an actual Modulus....

And right now is certainly not the most ideal time to be importing toys from sellers in eastern Asia.

At least two, to my knowledge.

Though, I could have gotten myself an unpainted Medix in 2018 if I'd gone after one of the ones that Pete had for sale at RoboCon that year. Alas, I had other toy priorities at that year's con.

I look forward to seeing pics of the new Exhaust. I have more interest in him than I do in regular ER Wheeljack.

Since we're getting Exhaust does it mean no Slicer? Just wondering.

Slicer is still possible, as long as he uses the Wheeljack head. I'm fully expecting Exhaust to have a new one, I mean, he'd just be Wheeljack with a different sponsor otherwise :lol:

It could still happen, though I'd prefer Sunstreaker to be the base mold. I feel like that could have some potential. But as long as he comes with the engine block/EMP Gen, then I'm sold. Especially because the new COMBAT system is 100% a gimmick that Lockdown needs. Hopefully him and Detritus get released in some way. The Merc ranks so far are just the Quints, Allicons, and Doubledealer (who I'm not sure if he counts, but I include him here because of his background)
