I feel the accessory pack itself would have went well with Optimus Prime. He's a Leader Class figure and the one most fans would want to buy, and the accessory pack would have not only completed the trailer but also encourage other fans to buy the other figures in the line. But of course, it's gotta go to an obscure repaint and online exclusive.

We got the trailer with Optimus, now we get the rest as part of a pack. This + Leader Optimus - Centurion > $50. If you don't want to drop the extra money on this, then don't.

...why do people STILL think this pack is a Selects thing when it's been confirmed already that it isn't? This should be on the Earthrise thread, this set is WFC-E33.

That is technically accurate but he is sold in a Selects box and not standard WFC Earthrise packaging. Plus the figure itself is a straight repaint, not counting the accessories, and a Pulse exclusive. Seems like everything indicates him being a Selects figure other than his ID number, which I didn't even take notice of until now.

I still don't like that a lot of this stuff didn't come with Prime. And with the super small deluxes like Cliffjumper (compared to Hoist in the same line), they could have included some of those accessories to make up for the small size.

Maybe it would have felt more appropriate to pay for them separately if they were more detailed or articulate, but that unpainted jetpack really doesn't do it for me.

Hmmm I hope to see a lot of Ebay sellers break up this set so I can make like a buffet, take what I want and leave the rest...remember buffets? :-P :VEHI:

I was thinking of doing that. I want the parts for Prime, Megatron, and some of the smaller accessories, but the Ravage Cage, individual guns for BB, Cliff, Ironhide, Trailbreaker...I don't really need/want. Of course my son may commandeer them to other toys, so we will see

The other approach would be buying the pack and reselling the Centurion drone. I don't know how many IDW fans will be building armies, but I'm sure there will be some, and it's not like there's a lot of use for three Ravage cages.

I really wish the gun mode Shockwave and camera mode Reflector were painted.
They were so close.. :BANG_HEAD:

They might be unpaintable plastic.

Is Tentakil just an inherently unstable leg, or am I doing something wrong?

Mine's that way too. Tentakil is a bad leg, it doesn't tab together, just holds together loosely. And with all that weight on top, it won't hold

Huh, I didn't think of that. Either way I would've even been happy had they just been molded in solid purple.
Oh well.

Yeah, they might have gangmolded all of the gray accessories. Sideswipe's rocket pack is gray too when it should be red.

Looking at the accessory pack again, after the initial excitement has worn off ... the lack of colors really hurts this.

If this were 3rd party the lack of colors would be an instant no-buy. But I suppose it keeps with the trend of the similar lack of paint on ER Prime himself (the unpainted grey inner legs). It's like ... this is good. but it could have been better.

But I've already gotten ER Prime so I'm committed. I wonder if there's space in his trailer for most of the accessoies.

This Drone Brunt and accessories pack is going to be sweet. Most of it I want, but is Optimus' ion canon a bit too large? Glad I gots my pre-order in and didnt buy Brunt.

What I am most excited for is the Super Megatron. He looks so badass. I know its basically a TR Galvatron remold, but its pretty much a new figure. Wrist swivels would have been tight, but he just looks so good and is the Megatron I need for my timeline headcanon collection.

It does look too big. There's also no way for it to fold up so a lot of the functionality is lost.

In fairness, I think it, and a lot of the other weapons here, are supposed to store in Prime's trailer. If you open it up there's a lot of spots tailor made for weapons.

That still has nothing to do with the ion canon being too big for Prime to use. I dont care bouts it fitting in the trailer or not. Just if its out of scale size for Primes robot mode.

Why not just stick with the one he already comes with?

Or just call this big one an upgraded version.

Yeah, they might have gangmolded all of the gray accessories. Sideswipe's rocket pack is gray too when it should be red.

There's four colors of plastic here: gray, clear pink, clear yellow, and clear black. It would be strange if all the gray parts weren't gang molded, but they are definitely paintable since Roller is molded in gray, painted blue, and has clear black (unpainted) tires. Likewise Megatron and Soundwave are also painted gray plastic. Prime's gun is also clear black, but painted solid black while the cage is just clear black. Pretty sure they blew their paint budget between Roller and Prime's gun, can't imagine they set aside much just for an accessory pack. Would have made much more sense to use opaque black since nothing in this set actually requires clear black plastic. The equivalent amount of paint used for the gun could have gone to Shockwave and Reflector and still had enough left to add some paint to other guns.
