What do you think of these figures? Will you be collecting all of these figures?

Does anyone know if Elitas backpack is removable? Reminds me of a homeless cybertronian.
The impactor paint job is nice, I may just have to grab a 2nd figure.
Please fill me in on this line but other than the Netflix line, do these figures have better paint apps? Thanks and take care my fellow cybertronians

As removable as Arcee's, since they're the same mold.soundwave765 wrote:Does anyone know if Elitas backpack is removable? Reminds me of a homeless cybertronian.

Red loses his red biceps from the renders (again) and his limbs are this weird cream color that clashes with the white paint like nobody's business. Wheeljack loses the cool weathering effects on his car mode paint apps and instead just gets black stuff spattered on him.
The miscolored whites didnt work on the regular siege version either, only Selects Artic Megatron pulls it off in a good way (it makes him look cheap but also even more G2ish).
I might consider elita 1 and detaching the shell but only bumblebee for sure, Optimus depending on final figures coloring and maybe the mystery leader. Soundwaves nice but I just need to spend money on another one.

That makes the most sense. I mean I know some people are into the Netflix line. To me they pretty much were pointless cash grabs until Elita-1 and Bumblebee which are arguably the first new toys in this line.

Yes I guess it would have to be. Although everything else from wave 1 and 2 was specific to Siege. (well now I guess an Earthmode Soundwave would be the other exception as well) I figure Netflix Earthrise will have repaints from ER (and a couple new surprises perhaps), and same for Kingdom. The packaging I imagine would stay the same, just muted black/white versions of the line they are duplicating.
So basically "Earthrise" Bumblebee and Soundwave got hijacked by Walmart for use in their Siege Line to Promote Siege Netflix, . My other thought could have been that Elita-1 was going to be a Selects perhaps, but fortuitously just happened to work in the series favor.

Add to that the rumors that ER will end after three retail waves, plus the rumors of Inferno and other G1 vehicles, and it definitely seems like the release schedule was scrambled for one reason or another. Of course, WfC has had a less explicit conceptual division between it's lines compared to, say, Combiner Wars versus Titans Return.

o.supreme wrote:Yeah the Spoiler Box #2 is puzzling. I think a Black Galaxy Prime is the best guess I've seen. But then again, that character never appeared in the series so...
The product information text says the transformation takes 34 steps. Galaxy Prime takes 44, while Earthrise Prime takes 35. A Nemesis Prime based on the ER mold is more likely.
