No no the report is just misleading, TLS site has all the exclusives and Red alert and Sideswipe are both getting their own vinyls

So are these for sale at Gamestop or are part of some kind of pre-order or something?

They're set to ship out on Friday if ordered on their website. Not sure if they'll be in stores.

Wave 3 includes Scrapper, Longhaul, Bonecrusher, Swoop, Sludge, Rumble, Frenzy, Lazerbeak, Buzzsaw, Trailbreaker, Sunstreaker, Wheeljack, Hound and Blitzwing. That's 14 more characters to fill out your Autobot and Decepticon ranks.

Besides FIRRIB, (repaint sometime?) these are really cool looking. Too bad I can never find them anywhere.

Exactly. The right way.

I picked up Red Alert, Optimus Prime (nighttime edition), and Sideswipe (nighttime edition) from my local Gamestop this week. They look awesome! Excited for Wave 3 and hoping they will make an 8" Devastator to go along with the Constructicons.

Well technically in the Japanese version of the cartoon, Frenzy was the blue guy and Rumble was the red guy (thus resulting in Rumble barely showing up and Frenzy being the main humanoid cassette).

Honestly although the overwhelming evidence in canon points towards FIBRIR I prefer FIRRIB, simply because that was how I remember them (I only ever saw the cartoon on videotape in the early 2000s, long after G1 was a thing- and because I never saw the RID cartoon nor did I know it existed, I always thought it was weird how the cartoon Transformers had absolutely no relation to the toys- thus beginning my history of assigning "home grown" personalities to my TFs). Also, it just seems to suit them better.

Now if only someone would make a Frenzy, Rumble and Ravage for Cybertron Soundwave so I can have a Soundwave with decent, non-floppy minions that doesn't turn into a goddamn tape deck...


On topic, these look kinda cool. I'm worried about how well they'll age though- isn't vinyl very squishy and prone to drying out (and also the paint flaking)?

At The Loyal Subjects booth at Toy Fair 2015 we get to see a wide variety of current and past products including previous waves and the boxed Game Stop exclusives. On display is the latest wave 3 featuring Scrapper, Longhaul, Bonecrusher, Swoop, Sludge, Rumble (red), Frenzy (blue), Buzzsaw, Laserbeak, Trailbreaker, Sunstreaker, Wheeljack, Hound and Blitzwing. ScottyP informs us that the chase figures are Sunstreaker 1/24, Hound 1/48, Frenzy (the blue one for them) 1/96. Wheeljack has light up blinking ears with a demonstration video coming later. The large black figures are customs.

I wonder how they would do a Devastator in this line, since they're making the Constructicons. They could just reuse one of the larger-scale molds, although it would require tons of retooling to make it look Devastator-ish.
