Vector Prime will be my only purchase from this wave
Maybe it's because I'm not as attached to the character but I like the jhiaxus mold and I don't think this is so bad

The proportions are a little lanky/wonky but I think it looks good

My guess is that the wings are too pointy on the ends to be able to use the hard clear plastic, or too fragile on the drop test, and so they had to use something softer and had to settle for that color sprue.

Possibly.

Also, Just had a thought....

Cybertron Sideways (coming in a Walmart capsule next year) from Straxxus? Or Vice-versa?

I can't see it, especially if you consider the chest design to the guy. Also, Sideways was a short, stout character and figure while this Jhiaxus mold seems more designed for taller, lanky bots. Not sure it would be a good fit.

EDIT: I read Straxxus as Jhiaxus. Derp.

Sideways was tall and lanky. I thin you are picturing someone else.

The chest can be retooled to match Straxxus better.

He's very much the same general idea as Straxxus: flying thing with a large gun on top.

Ahh, did not realize Sideways was a deluxe. and Straxus was a Leader. Well so much for my idea.

Nothing of interest to me here, Vector Prime looks alright but not enough to warrant $35.

I don't think Vector Prime is that bad. Just like Jhiaxus, he's a bit too simple for voyager, but it's this or nothing. For what it's worth, I also thought he should have been leader sized brand new mold. Jhiaxus could be used for Armada Thrust. Preordered Comic Grimlock. Any idea when Straxus will be available?

Hmmm, maybe that's why he sold out before the other 2 deluxes on Pulse.

Okay, not sure who corrected what, but I'll meet someone errrm...one quarter of the way and agree that I always loosely associate Cybertron Sideways/Noisemaze with Jhiaxus in that he looks like he should be repainted into one of the Liege Centruro's Cybertronian flunkies. Is it possible the designer actually based him on some of Manny Galan's generics in addition to whatever shuttle design his alt is supposed to be?

That green and white redeco is the one of the few possible products of all these Cybertron 20th anniversary updates that I'd buy the $&*%! out of!

Hot Shot looks basically perfect, instant preorder.

Nucleous looks so close to something I would like, but again, the fact that he is actually straight-up made of rocks ruins it for me. If he was just a cool TF moon buggy with a club made of rockets and that same color scheme and head design, absolutely, but as it is, can't get past the weirdness.

Vector Prime looked a little rough to me in the render, but the in-hand look at him in the stream sold me, that metallic paint looks so good. If his arms had been retooled to have his armguards, he would basically be perfect (and/or if he had Safeguard, but honestly I was expecting him not to have him at this rate), but as-is I'm still on board.

Straxus should be an absolute pickup, barring any weird unforseen decisions, super happy to have him confirmed out of nowhere.

That three pack is very similar to the previous one with Megs, so I'm not certain of the appeal of it. For me anyway.

The appeal would first be for those who missed out on the Netflix Soundwave and want some extra figures for the price they'd pay on eBay.
Or for those who missed out on all 3.
Or the hardcore who don't mind triple-dipping.

I wouldn't mind getting Shockwave and Soundwave, but i already have 2 of ER Screamer so unless it's a new Starscream it'll be a hard sell.

Well, 2 wants out of 3 ain't that bad.
Just compare to what you'd have to pay if you had to hunt down Soundwave and Shockwave on the secondary market.

I'm sure the extra Starscream can be easily sold or traded.

But one is an import from :TAKARATOMY: , the other is "domestic" by :HASBRO: .
The shipping and paying for that extra throne will make a difference.

Yeah this may be the opportunity I take to have Shockwave. I’ll take Soundwave since my NF version is still sealed, and who knows, maybe this new Starscream will replace my ER version. It would be cool if this used the SS86 articulated hands.
But as always, appearances will be the determining factor.
And I won’t be surprised if there are a couple little nuggets to up the appeal factor. Such as something like Buzzsaw instead of Lazerbeak. Maybe a pistol mode Megatron accessory.

Keyword: some.

For those who didn't, they have a choice.
And the choice will be mainly for the PRICE. For how much will this new 3 pack will go and will it have extras like the chair for the first trio? No one knows.

Also, any :TAKARATOMY: "exclusives" are "imports", whenever you can buy them "locally" or not. It's being reflected in the price.

Personally I would prefer the Dramatic Capture set, but it's on hold due to budget concerns. If the price doesn't go sky high in the next 4 months, I'll get it. If it does, I'll see about this set. I really only want Soundwave and Shockwave, but I would rather have another Megatron than another Starscream.

And like -Kanrabat- said, the price, the price, the price.

While I would rather have Megatron than Starscream, I don’t find that ER mold worth it, no matter what the deco is.
With the DC set, I also didn’t love that Soundwave; for me I had preordered that for Shockwave. Who imo looks incredibly good. But I canceled because it still wasn’t worth it.
Assuming there’s less $$ worth of accessories in this new set, if it ends up being $80, I’m more likely to go for it. Of course, that is if I really like the look of Shockwave, and the others are good too.

If you only want Shockwave, there's some special edition release in "toon colors" (or comics colors?) as a voyager without the extra Siege tidbits.
You may want to look that one up instead.

Lots of assumptions going around that this will be an Earth mode 3 pack and not an "Origin" pack made with Siege molds.

I'm not against having a clean version of those molds and maybe a Shockwave with clear purple fist/gun.

Figures from the Transformers Legacy United Versus are being sold early on e-bay. And one of those is the orange Tarantulas. This gives us some new in hand images and a really good look at the face. This is based on the early marketing material for Tarantulas along with his packaging art.

Why didn't they simply give it a new name, making it a different character? Even as a prime character, repainted as an unused prototype it doesn't hold that much "must-buy potential", IMHO...

That was the original plan. The figure was originally going to be sold in Legacy Evolution proper, with the new name of Chimeracon. But then it was decided to simply do a package refresh of the normal Tarantulas figure instead, with this one getting relegated to the 4-pack and being re-characterized as the original version of Tarantulas from the toyline before the cartoon came along, in which he was a ninja character.

But then it was decided to simply do a package refresh of the normal Tarantulas figure instead, with this one getting relegated to the 4-pack and being re-characterized as the original version of Tarantulas from the toyline before the cartoon came along, in which he was a ninja character.

Considering the recent Commander UM, the rumored Commander OP, Springer being Commander I think I might just wait for a Commander Megs with a solid deco. Which is why I'm not torn up about missing out on that 3-pk.

I also hope that one day Soundwave is given a proper G1 specific mold and looks great. I already have Siege Shockwave but I've yet to open it up because I'm not quite sold on the deco. I would definitely take one that's closer to G1 colors.

Hence none of the two 3-pks really appeal to me overall. So ultimately I'm still waiting for solid versions of Astortrain, Megatron, Octane, Shockwave and Soundwave.
As well as Powerglide, Seaspray and Windcharger.

If EE ever ships Beachcomber and after Pulse ships Gears then I think I'll pretty much be done if all the above can happen within the next 2-4 years.

The orange is the only part that's right (aside from the absence on the Spider head). The Bio card shows orange, pale green and chrome. No purple. Also the opposite face is all chrome with a red visor.
