This came exactly out of nowhere. In a surprise move Takara Tomy Mall is taking pre-orders on a new Siege SG-EX Soundblaster based on his appearance in the Netflix animated series. While mostly similar to the Walmart exclusive 35th Anniversary figure it features less "battle damage" on his chest and a Mercenary faction symbol. There have been no leaks or rumors about a new Soundblaster release aside from speculation of a repaint of Netflix Soundwave retool figure due this month. As an EX figure it will be exclusive to Takara Tomy Mall within Japan. It should be pointed out that this is not being listed specifically as part of the mass retail Netflix line by Takara Tomy in Japan.

It's unknown if Hasbro will ever release this version of the figure which could make it a hard to find collectible for fans trying to complete their Netflix lineup and unwilling to settle for the original Walmart release. Takara Tomy Mall will also be the exclusive seller in Japan to including ER EX-20 Ratchet and Lifeline, ER EX-21 Bluestreak, ER EX-22 Centurion Drone, SG-EX Rainmakers. If you have any thoughts on this release feel free to post them in the Energon Pub forum!

According to Hasbro Pulse, Soundblaster is Selects and not Earthrise or Netflix, the 2 forums I've seen him posted in. I put the links to Pulse in the Selects thread.

Yeah, it's confusing. TakaraTomy Mall says it's a normal Siege figure while Hasbro Pulse says it's a Selects figure. It appears that Hasbro and Takara are treating this figure differently. Takara is selling it as part of their Siege line in Japan, while Hasbro instead puts it in their imports of Takara's Selects line.

So, is it just the chest piece and damage deco? Reflexively pre-ordered, but pretty sure I'm gonna cancel.

Not feeling the paint scheme, the scratches and dirt nor the lack of sponsor logos. I like the regular Siege version more. I'll just keep that one and skip he Netflix version.

They did Voyager Nemesis Prime last year, also a Takara Tomy Mall exclusive, Soundblaster is just more of that. There's still a bunch of Selects and retail exclusives from Hasbro that haven't been released in Japan while Hasbro has only missed NP from Takara Tomy.

It is confusing for sure, but it does provide insight in how the brand unification is put into practice. True, the figures are still (mostly) untouched when imported into either region, but either company is still allowed their own projects and especially release scheme, even if there's overlap when it comes to characters like Nemesis Prime and now Soundblaster.

The main lines in the WFC Trilogy and the Netflix series are pretty much shared, Selects is split between Hasbro and TakaraTomy, and standalone exclusives are free-for-all if there's a way to make them fit. Unfortunately, Hasbro has no real place for Soundblaster as Siege has effectively ended here, so he gets chucked into Selects with all the other TakaraTomy imports. 8-}

I've just caught up on what I liked from the first wave so I figure I'm ready for Bee, BOtOx1a-1 and maybe Optimus.

Redwings white paint chipped on first transformation to trijet so I'm just leaving Hotlink alone to look shiny and scorchy.

So is it time to stat taking bets on when Walmart starts sending out delay notices on the next wave of Netflix figures? They are due to "arrive" in 2 days with the free 2 day shipping meaning they should be released/shipped today.

I have almost no hope of them actually shipping out on time. Wave 1 was delayed so far that I found everyone I wanted in stores and cancelled the pre-orders before they shipped. I'm expecting the same for wave 2.

Just before this, saw someone on Twitter get their Soundwave delayed to November 17

I'll be curious to see whether my leader spoiler pack ships from Walmart or Pulse first. I ordered the Spoiler pack, Bee and Elita-1 from Walmart when they were first announced, but then ordered a second Spoiler pack from Pulse once we knew who was in there as I didn't want to chance things with Walmart.

Impactors and red Alerts are now being cancelled outright, and more delays with the other deluxes and voyagers noted. No confirmed leader delays yet

The only one I have pre-ordered is the Nemesis Prime Box. I was able to find all the first wave in-store, but didn't want to take a chance with this one (The only others I want are the BM's from the Optimus, and I have a deal with someone for that). So yeah, I was going to ask since it is scheduled to "arrive saturday" but there is no movement yet.

Amazon, for all the pains of delays are at least frequent with their notices. Target was a huge Pain, not doing that again, now I guess it's Walmarts turn to mess things up for me, though from what I've read, they've messed over plenty of fans already.
