Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron user, and YouTube toy reviewer, PrimeVsPrime has done a new video review! His subject this time? Transformers Generations War for Cybertron Earthrise Deluxe Class Bluestreak!

Bluestreak is the third use of the mold, following in retail Smokescreen, and Prowl from the Amazon exclusive Autobot Alliance two pack.

It is still unclear what the release method for Earthrise Bluestreak will be at time of writing with current rumours pointing to Walgreens exclusive in the USA

We have embedded the review below for your convenience:



What do you think of Bluestreak? Will you be adding him to your collection? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

It seems like if you want to use the radar dish you'll have the hand gun loose or vice-versa. I honestly thought the dish was for robot mode.

If you haven't noticed yet the mold has new leg panels on the shins giving them bigger knee pads which is a surprising amount of cartoon accuracy I hadn't noticed until I had them in hand. Problem is the new knee pads don't fit under the "skirt" in jet mode like they do for the original Seeker. Instead you have to leave the panel slightly open and have the pads on the outside of the skirt. They're only being held in place with friction from the pin joint and nothing else. Really feels like an oversight when designing, seems like they could have found a way for that little nub that locks the panel in place catch in both modes. It isn't a huge issue now, but I just hope we don't end up with loose pin joints that will cause that panel to constantly fall open in jet mode in the future.

In other news, my Scorponok shipped from Amazon. They're saying it'll arrive next Monday, but I think it'll be here sooner like how my Sky Lynx originally said this Friday, but showed up yesterday.

I mentioned it in my video review. What's funny is in the instructions one panel shows the knee pads over the codpiece, the other shows it under. Obivously there's no way for it to fit under.

Man I already have all 3 of the Siege Datsuns (plus Barricade) but the Earthrise ones look really good to me.

If I do get them then it would actually make Barricade standout compared to the rest of them, I presume that Barricade isn't getting an Earthrise version.

IIRC, there was a listing found for a Netflix Barricade along with the wave 2 deluxes and Cheetor, so he'll probably be in Netflix wave 3. It's anyone's guess which mold he'll use though.

I’m thinking Bluestreak is going to be a Walgreens exclusive because I just ordered one from Hong Kong. I ordered him from the same seller who had those early Walgreens Wreck-Gars back in August of 2018.

That seems to be the consensus so far. Walgreens exclusives come in normal packaging, the online community is pretty much the only ones aware that one toy each year is an exclusive (in the U.S. at least). Still no packaging seen yet for Thrust.

I'm hoping Thrust and Runabout are normal Wave 4 Earthrise releases, just not sure whats left as far as Map pieces. I know some people are saying there is no wave 4, but Hasbro confirmed it themselves.

If the plan has changed, It would behoove them I think to have announced that at some point.

Wrong thread. That's a Selects figure.

People aren't saying there is no wave 4, they're saying there's no longer a wave 4. I wouldn't really expect them to announce a plan change, It's pretty rare for them to announce cancellations, they tend to hope people don't notice. That's the sort of thing that they might say in an interview or a Q&A session, not an announcement. It's very likely that the un-battle damaged tape player Soundwave, Bumblebee and Elita 1 were intended for Earthrise wave 4, but ended up in the Netflix line instead. We're heading into September and wave 2 Deluxe still hasn't been released yet, we're probably a long way from wave 3 and Kingdom is supposed to launch in December. Blame it on COVID, there just isn't enough time without more delays.

It would be interesting to know what was originally planned for Earthrise Wave 4. I can definitely see another full Deluxe Class wave consisting of Netflix Bumblebee and Elita-1, Runabout, and maybe someone like Rathcet or Tracks to fill things up. The Voyagers could have been Netflix Soundwave and Thrust. Three leaders for Earthrise may have always been the intention, but since Astrotrain was shared with the 5th Wave of Siege, maybe someone like Galvatron or Earth Mode Ultra Magnus was supposed to be in Earthrise proper instead of held for Kingdom.

What I can't figure out is what would have been in the smaller size classes, Micromasters and Battle Masters. The Micromasters could have been anything, really. There are so many more yet to do. I'm hoping we get another bundle of them, even if they're retools and repaints, in the Selects line in the future. At the very least, I want a proper Decepticon "Overair" for Airwave and likewise the original Micromaster equivalent partners with new names for Selects Greasepit and Hothouse. I love posing Earthrise Ironworks with Siege Irontread. It's a nice way to have the new and old together, like having your G1 cake and eating it too, lol! It's also anyone's guess with the Battle Masters. Hasbro and Takare Tomy really just seemed to give up on them with Earthrise. We got three new molds, and two direct rereleases from Siege. Nothing was even repainted! Siege got at least 7 or so unique Battle Master molds. Will anything in Kingdom even come with the blast effect parts from Siege and Earthrise? That would suck to lose out on those next year.

We can probably make some guesses based on wave 4 of Siege, the original final wave before the partial wave 5 intended for ER was tacked on. The wave 4 Battle Master would probably have been one of these guys if not both. The Micromasters are unknown, though it's possible there wasn't one since it's likely Siege wave 5 was meant to be ER wave 1 pushing everything back and then just repacking other figures for wave 4 instead of wave 3. Deluxe could have easily been Bumblebee, Elita 1, (battle damaged version for Netflix) and probably Ratchet since it's strange to do such extensive retooling for exclusives. Voyager would be Earth Soundwave, I suspect Netflix would have probably gotten Earth Soundblaster instead since SB played a role in the series. Soundwave probably would have been packed with Apeface who I'm thinking was intended for ER wave 2 with Snapdragon. There was no wave 4 Leader in Siege so it'd probably be the same for ER. For that matter Astrotrain was intended for ER so there probably wasn't originally a wave 3 in Siege meaning no other Leaders after Doubledealer, that's 3 Leaders per line (Siege: Ultra Magnus, Shockwave, GU Optimus Prime. Earthrise: Optimus Prime, Astrotrain, Doubledealer. Kingdom: Galvatron, Beast Megatron, Earth Magnus plus ER Prime repack).

If my guess is right then the only thing losing wave 4 has cost us is two Battle Masters (Boo!), battle damaged Bumblebee and Elita 1 (meh), and Earth Soundblaster (extra large BOO!).

To be fair, we could get earth soundblaster as Selects or a future wave of Netflix

This is true, though I feel like he'd be getting too far from his Netflix appearance to show up in another wave. Then again nobody ever said we're only getting three waves, we're getting two this year and the Earthrise series probably wont even be on Netflix until late next year. Maybe two waves per series, so six total? Or maybe they'll just keep going until Walmart gets tired of it.

I thought they may have tried to cram Earthrise series at the end of this year so that Kingdom could air during its associated toyline otherwise it'll air in whatever line is out in 2022!

If it's the Hong Kong seller, I just got the last one. After running around last year for Ratchet and only ever seeing the one I own I don't want to risk it. If I find one I'll sell it for enough to make up the difference.

What about the map though? I mean I'm not trying to get them all, but it seems like a pretty big deal to let go by the wayside and "hope nobody will notice"

But what really is there to notice other than the number of waves being inaccurate? It isn't like there will be missing map pieces, you will still fill the map, just with 3 retail waves plus exclusives instead of 4 waves that would have been a TR/PotP final wave at best.

Was that ever confirmed? I thought even with exclusives, there were some map pieces still missing.

Now I am really hoping to get Bluestreak, and also have decided I'm definitely in for Smokescreen.
Runamuck is a definite 'pass'...

And I'm really anxious to see Cyclonus and Galvatron. I almost wish Galvatron was going to be voyager class. But as long as they have his look on point...
