We're hours away from Hasbro's latest Fan First Friday featuring Transformers. Thanks to our own Seibertronians Sentinel_Primal and King Kuuga for bringing our attention to the image that appears to have originated on Planet Iacon on Facebook. We're being treated to our first (and relatively small) look at Earthrise exclusive 2-packs featuring Autobots Prowl and Ironhide and Decepticons Ramjet and Dirge. Ironhide appears to be an extensive retool of the the Siege figure worked into a new Earth mode van while Prowl is a slight retool of Smokescreen. Ramjet and Dirge are retools of Starscream with reworked wings and heads. Unfortunately Ramjet doesn't come with his classic missiles, but the arm guns are cartoon accurate for bot mode. Both sets are expected to be Amazon exclusives similar to the sets from last year for Siege.

I know I'm convinced by Ironhide's retooling but what do you think of him and the other three figures found in theses sets? Let us know in the Energon Pub forums!

The size of Ironhide's chest window makes his head look tiny in proportion to the rest of his body, the Seige version has a better looking robot mode, but the Earth vehicle mode looks nice. Prowl looks great in both modes, so much better than the Siege version. I'm definitely buying this set, but I'm still undecided on the Ramjet and Dirge set. I have Starscream and it's a really good mould, Skywarp and Thundercracker are pre-ordered, but I wasn't really planning on having any more Seekers than that, though Ramjet and Dirge are certainly tempting.

I'm probably going to pick the Ironhide and Prowl set up because I still need a vaguely G1 Prowl, and my ideal "G1" Prowl is only gonna happen if I pick up a 3D printer :lol:

The Coneheads look really nice and I'll definitely get them to go with the Rainmakers and Earthrise Starscream and Thundercracker (my friend and I are splitting the TC and Skywarp set because he only wants Skywarp, and I only want TC)

I'm left wondering how many reveals are left for the event to reveal :lol:

If that saves us all from having to sit through 15 minutes of forced corporate enthusiasm and tepid "jokes" then perhaps it's for the best! ;)

Great to see the Coneheads at long last but once again time to feel bad for the people who bought Prowl or Ironhide last year who might not have done so had they know these were coming.

I remember having a LONG discussion regarding the possibility of an ER Ironhide and Ratchet and my reasons for waiting for one rather than getting Siege. So it's nice to see this taking shape. Looks like I'm gonna be getting a lot of sets. So far all three shown are must-haves for me.

Oh god yes let’s feel bad for grown adults who bought and play with toys. The same characters released as a new toy a year later. Some of you people wouldn’t have survived beast wars and unicron trilogy

No feelings for those that bought the siege versions of Ironhide and prowl. Plenty of people that were/are happy with them and plenty that weren't and waited. I'm willing to wait more for a studio series version with optional battle damage and a crater for a head :)

I think that Prowl looks cool, Ironhide looks frickin ugly, and the Coneheads look decent. Don’t @ me. :D

I agree, and this is actually my problem with the earthrise seekers too. I grabbed starscream, because of course I would. but despite being an update to an already pretty good mold, and an excellent jet mode, his chest looks too big for his body, and his head way too small. its nowhere near PoTP screamer bad, but it is a big detraction for me, placing the siege seekers as the better ones imho. This is why I am not getting the Target 2 pack. I will get the coneheads of course to have all the seekers in scale.of course though, im also an oddball trying to complete the map, so not getting the Target seeker 2 pack kinda kills that. anyone not want their map piece and willing to share? lol

that prowl though... see I loved the earthrise "datsuns" but theres no denying their proportions are a little off too, with 'dem skinny thighs. So I may have to get that set and say goodbye to my siege prowl.

Well, that's an opinion...

I for one think these are legit and fantastic!

Yeah, there's one at $60, two at $40, and five at $20, so it definitely looks like second wave of Netflix exclusives.

Guessing:

$60 - Shockwave with lab stuff.
$40 - Optimus Prime recolor and new character (maybe Deadlock from Springer) plus Battlemasters.
$20 - Elita-1, Armada Wheeljack, Ironhide recolor, ...?

What would be hilarious is if $60 fig was a retool of Astrotrain as Armada Jetfire, but that seems really unlikely.

I think they used some of the wrong pictures for the event, because they showed an unaltered ER Prime for the Netflix Siege figure.

Also, Bumblebee and Soundwave are a part of the netflix line? Why wouldn't they go in ER? Seems kinda weird if they don't have weathering but whatever.

It is cool that Bumblebee is a VW, I was just hoping he didn't partsform like Cliffjumper does. Maybe the updated molding will let him transform without removing it?

kind of weird having non battledamage/non premium paint applications in the netflix line that boasts it, what will the regular earthrise releases look like for them (if there is any).

How else were they going to recreate the original toy's hoverboard w/ gun turret?

Well, now we know why Arcee has that junky unintegrated transformation: So that they could easily swap the robot body to give us an attempt at car-mode Elita One. Which ends up being rather pathetic because of said unintegrated transformation, having Arcee's car mode instead of her own, and being too short relative to Optimus.

I don't think I'll get Elita. I already have the Primes version for my official version and I like MMC's as my main.

I wish they'd just lead with Netflix. I always found some fault with the main ER Prime and if Netflix is just going to come out with a better one Hasbro is going to lose a lot of my trust.

Honestly, it would be awesome but I don't think it will happen. Battle Masters are cheaper individually than Micromasters. Plus that Select box exist.

In all logic, it may be a special "battle damage" version of Optimus Prime with one or two Battle Masters included.

I hope earthrise Ironhide gets a separate release. Don't want to waste my money on a two pack if i'm only getting it for one figure.
