2020 is here and while we have the 2020 toys from both the Cyberverse and Studio Series line appearing in stores, the Transformers Earthrise line is nowhere to be found. But, and this is always a good sign, Hasbro's promotional campaign for the line is in full swing. Below you can see several promotional quick transformation videos that In Demand toys posted on Facebook. Those include Leader Class Optimus Prime, Voyager Class Grapple, Voyager Starscream, Deluxe Ironworks, Deluxe Wheeljack, Deluxe Cliffjumper and Deluxe Hoist.

Real shame they're not on youtube and we could just slow down the playback speed 8-)

I’m now wondering if I made a mistake not to order star scream... loved the classics figure with the only issue back then was his size. I have the siege screamer which I love (chest piece falling off aside).. didn’t get repaints and so intend to get a skywarp or the coneheads....

Prime's fists are grey again. I guess we'll find out what it's gonna be when Earthrise finally hits stores.

I'm still undecided on earthrise starscreaam. I think voyager size will work better for him but there is a lot more deluxe sized aircraft transformers out there from all the other lines so I might be okay with sticking to the classics versions. I still need Siege Rainmaker anyways seeing as they haven't made it across the pond yet with out paying ebay prices.

No, they're not. We've been through this. Any time they appear in official imagery from Hasbro it has grey hands cuz they keep using slightly older prototypes. Not only have multiple separate people's final in-hand copies show that the hands are painted blue, but the most recent official Takara photography in Figure King magazine has them painted blue, as well. They. Will. Be. Blue.

you can fix starscreams chest by simply taking a small screwdriver and slightly enlarging the holes in the chest piece so it pegs in better. I have 4 copies of starscream (3 i modded) and i've done this to all of them and i can transform them without it popping off. Its the same fix for ironhides leg panels.

I am considering hunting down G1 Scorponok....but for half the price, I should probably just wait for the Titan.
Re: Quick Promotional Transformation Videos for Transformers Earthrise (2048977)

Yeah, G1 Scorp can get pricy due to all the fiddly bits that can get lost. Probably best to buy a complete one rather than hunting parts... or the KO from recent years? His color is ever so slightly off, but makes a great substitute on the cheap.

Of course the elephant in the room is that — although a great toy — he is half the size of his rival Fort Max. It will be excellent to get a properly sized double headmaster Scorponok this year. Truly stoked!

I considered the KO “reissue” for $260ish.....but I can get the G1 for a little more than that, albeit loose. The Titan will definitely be proper-sized, though, to go with Titan ‘Max!

The Voyager Screamer looks good, BUT, I already have three Classics Screamers, Thundercracker, Skywarp, the coneheads and Acid Storm, and while they don't scale well with the Autobot cars, they do scale well with all the Combiner Wars, Titans Return and other stuff. Do I really want to spend $260 to replace my core seekers and then be on the look out to spend more money so I have larger Aerialbots? It's a rabbit hole ...

I felt the Classics seekers were too small compared to most other contemporary figures, so ultimately I sold the core six to defray the costs of Earthrise. My combiners spend most of their time combined, so I don't worry about them as much.

I never got the Classics mold, so I'll probably get most of the Earthrise Seekers, especially since I never picked up Siege's offerings for Skywarp, Thundercracker, and Starscream. Though, I hope it's another boxset for the Coneheads. I know it was a hassle to get because it was a Target exclusive, but I think that the idea of packing three less iconic figures into a three pack, and then selling it for like $10 cheaper than it would be otherwise was a good one. On the other hand, I'm willing to bet that consumers didn't really care for it considering how fast it went on clearance after the holidays

I don't know about Starscream....maybe if the coneheads show up....but don't know....aand I really hope OP still has his bleu hands. Also, I hope Hasbro release slow video transformation like the Siege figures

Target is not aways a good Barometer for stuff like that. The stores have always tended to turn and burn stuff, especially Exclusives that have been out for a while, rather than letting it linger.

Glad to see I wasn't the only one! Even now I still read it as Aileron, haha

Fair enough. One of my friends is still annoyed that the day after he bought Bumblebee Soundwave it was put on clearance, even though the store had just started getting them :lol:

Also worth noting is that later wave releases of Starscream (sharing space with Springer, Thundercracker and any 35th Voyager) has the tolerances fixed.

Like others, I had a brief image of an Earthrise Aileron. However, here are my opinions:

Arcee: There is nothing I want more than a Prime-styled Arcee. Otherwise, I don't want it.
Airwave: The concept of this guy really intrigues me.
Alicon: A probable buy.
Smokescreen: I hope, again, for a G1 Prime version
