If you pass on the 2 pack, I don’t blame you, & we can still be buds.

Exactly the same. I had a bunch of thoughts I was about to type out in response but then I realized there's probably a thread somewhere around here more appropriately dedicated to this kind of thing...so I won't clog up the Earthrise thread with my TF buying woes lol.

Interestingly enough, they left the wheel hinge from Siege Prime's legs which allows you to rotate the wheels to the other side of the lower legs on Siege Prime, in Earth Rise Prime's legs, but negated it completely by adding the back panel.

So, yes, potentially they could have made it to hide the wheels, but chose to disable the option for some reason.

I think that reason was 1) to save money and 2) to give the figure a nicer looking back than Siege since the Siege version had so many negative comments on the top of the truck hanging out on his back. The panels they added clean up the back of the legs in bot mode and was probably a cheaper option than re-doing the legs completely.

My perfect prime would be the legs and ab wheels from Siege prime with Earthrise primes upper half somehow merged into a single figure.

I had the same backpack issues as most when I first saw the figure. Looked like a pointless light bar and panel and honestly it still is, but once in hand its not as egregious in robot mode as you may think.

Also I'm surprised nobody has designed a replacement part for him. The light bar panel is completely unnecessary in either mode, and a replacement bar could be made so the vehicle mode looks more G1.

All it does is hold on to the front of the truck mode. So a thinner panel without the lights can be made to serve the same purpose and produce much less of a backpack. The truck front would then be visible on the back but what you gonna do.

But yes, the tires collapsing into the torso where the arms used to be is a great bit of engineering, bit not sure whether I like EarthRise's side panels better or not. Its difficult to choose. Both have things I like and both have things that bother me.

IMO trying to hide the wheels is a dumb, unnecessary feature that's not with the cost and adds complexity that doesn't need to be there. They shouldn't do it with the calf wheels, and should stop trying it with the hip wheels. Just leave them at the hips on articulated struts like you did with Cybertron Optimus and ROTF Optimus, Hasbro. It would save so much smegging trouble.

Might get Barricade as a rank filler, idk.

Barricade looks good, if a little plain. I feel like black shoulders and purple windows would really help but of course the windows would take away some realism from the alt mode.

The Datsuns all look so good together though. Hopefully Amazon Canada gets it together and actually releases the delayed Prowl/Ironhide 2 pack. Finally got word my Smokescreen is in so I guess he'll be the first of the new mold for me.

Back to Barricade, I keep hearing that there will actually be 2 different decos, one being in the Netflix line? It will be interesting to see the difference if true.

My ER Smokescreen showed up today!
I've had great luck with Amazon... So he was "packaged" in a mailer envelope...
And yet is in basically perfect condition!

I'm going to start looking for Bluestreak. Probably this evening.

I wonder if it's possible to part switch ER and Siege Barricades to make an ideal Barricade, so here's what I'm thinking.

Siege torso, shoulders and head.

Earthrise legs, lower arms and doors (never mind the door connecters are different between the two versions).

I don't have any ER Datsuns and don't intend to get any, so I could be remembering wrong, but aren't the legs completely different shapes too? I don't think that proposed combo would be able to transform at all.

If it did, you would get a car with a low, flat round front and a high, square back.

Well damn, I hope the arms can switch around at least.

It's really only an issue in vehicle mode. If you're going for robot mode aesthetic, it can be done.

Robot mode is more important of course, I was initially thinking of this part swapping to have the benefit of giving Barricade a distinct car mode from the Datsuns that fits the 2007 character.

The Siege Barricade/Smokescreen head certainly looks more sinister then the Earthrise version so at least the head sculpts will be distinct across the 4 characters.

With the next galctic odyssey set revealed during today's fan first friday being an unanticipated micromaster six pack, we are left with three leaks/rumors but only two slots to fit them in: a Glyph/Tapout two pack, an ER Barricade with a punch/counterpunch redeco, and a white launchpad ironworks with the space shuttle micromaster team mold. I'm thinking the barricade rumor is mistaken, since the guess was that it was a changed release plan for the nextflix listing we saw a while back.
