While the toys from Takara and Hasbro may be the same now, the distribution is completely the opposite. FOr those not in the know, the "mainline" Earthrise toys are exclusives in Japan while the Netflix series toys are not. It could be that Japan is going by the old addage of the main line being the one that ties directly to the prominant media, where one supports the other.

The good thing here is that it means people who missed out on Walmart preorders or who simply do not have Walmarts to buy the exclusive Netflix toys from have more options. Especially for exclusive retools like Elita-1 and Bumblebee.

Those two are currently available for preorder at Amazon Japan. They ship worldwide (shipping will be combined) and they are a bit less than $25 USD a piece.

It just occurred to me that Wave 2 is a lot of Earthrise molds (plus Red Alert), so maybe the spoiler pack will be for Chapter 2? If so, I could see it being a Nemesis Prime or Nova Prime from GUOP.Maybe as a "Mercenary" captain for the ship from the end of Chapter 1?

Or perhaps another one of Shockwave's experiment clones.

Would be interesting if it’s double dealer with merc symbols.

Astrotrain was featured ominously in the show

I tried both my USA and Australian mailing addresses for the Japanese preorder, it rejected both by saying it would not ship to either of these addresses.

And then it added something about increasing the quantity, which makes me think this is for wholesalers only.

So looks like at the moment, us Australians cannot obtain this Bumblebee toy.

When is Bumblebee supposed to drop in the US? Is there a chance Japan will get it sooner?

Mid-October according to my Walmart pre-order.

Nemesis Prime is a pretty safe bet for the next spoiler box. It does say Fanguron Giza right on the front in Cybertronian in the same place it said Battlefield Rung on the previous box, that's Nemie's sword partner from PotP and Arms Microns. His name is Fanguron Giza so maybe it's a Slitherfang repaint? Giza has been a shark and a bird so far, why not a snake now?

Not sure what the spoiler would be unless he shows up in Earthrise?

Small correction: the text says Fangtron, not Fanguron.

That does make more sense. They made that little line so short it looks like the smaller line on the U.

I know he's popular, doesn't mean you have to charge scalper prices. He's cheaper on Amazon!

For the 2nd spoiler box, (we know its a leader figure with a Battle Master) along with Giza, I think some are speculating it will be some sort of redeco of Galaxy Prime, based on:

Leader UM has been released twice (retail and spoiler box 1)
Leader Shockwave has been released twice (retail and selects Galactic Man)

Astrotrain is a distant possibility, but literally he was in 2 shots in the final episode that very much looked like late additions just to say he was there. The text revealing Giza is accurate, however, this 2nd wave is specifically still supposed to be tied to Siege, so not sure how that works since Giza was not part of it. But then again neither were any of the other Battle Masters in the other packs from the 1st wave....

I wouldn't mind a Nemesis Prime from the Galaxy Upgrade Prime mould, though mainly because I never managed to get the original. It would also be great to have a Nemesis Prime that's a different mould from the Earthrise Leader Optimus Prime, it would make him feel more like a distinct character and not just a standard black repaint.

So I had a random thought today while I opened a certain Autobot space shuttle.

At the end of the series, Teletran was signaling an approaching spacecraft. Could that possibly be our Magnificence friend?

I thought it was the Nemesis. Then a space battle ensues and they both crash. And Earthrise begins.

Not sure on that. Megatron had no need to crew a craft because he was winning. The Autobots were retreating. It makes more sense that what they end up encountering is either Sky Lynx or an Earth-based spacecraft.

Going off some recently revealed Earthrise art, it could be a ship captained by Doubledealer.

My first thought was this. And I still feel like that's the most logical answer. Warden explained (somewhere) that Earthrise was the story of their travel through space to get to Earth. (don't ask me to explain why they already have Earth modes. I don't know. Wolfman Jake said they were so excited for the Earth party, they picked out their 'fits early. :lol: ) But, I like the possibility of it being Sky Lynx too. Who could very well be the ally that leads them to Earth.

Plus, would the Nemesis be "unidentified" to Telatran 1? It's a pretty smart computer, well versed in all things Cybertronian.

Depends on if the Nemesis is Cybertron made in this universe ;)

Well sure, but couldn't the super computer also scan the inhabitants inside? ;)
