I guess Soundwave is among my Siege regret figures. Seems like this version will be the last word on a G1 inspired "Classics" Soundwave. I'd be happier if it wasn't tinged with regretting a prior purchase.

I am confused on one part, is that Bumblebee Netflix or Earthrise?

Also if all netflix, then its really weird to reveal those before the Earthrise versions. UNLESS we are only getting Soundwave and Bee in Netflix, which is odd. But then again, that's what is going on with elita so who knows.

well most were right on guessing wave 2 of the netflix stuff. also kinga get a chuckle on the fact that for the first time in years, bumblebee is a repaint/retool of cliffjumper, and not the other way around. still hate that the back half of the car is just a separate part.

speculation abounds for the new leader though... maybe a boxed set of all the battlemasters! =P

also fyi all of these were already sold out on walmart.com before officially being released. that may change after 10am when the sale was actually supposed to go live. all of these went up before the fan event for preorder as un-named listings https://www.walmart.com/browse/transformers/YnJhbmQ6VHJhbnNmb3JtZXJz?_be_shelf_id=4629791&cat_id=0&facet=shelf_id%3A4629791%7C%7Cbrand%3ATransformers

and sold out in a short while

Honestly I actually prefer how Siege Soundwave looks, and he has an actual vehicle mode to boot (whilst he can be easily fanmoded into a tape deck). This one looks good though.

Optimus is just lousy. Thank God he doesn’t come with meaningful Battlemasters for me. The same cannot he said for Soundwave, lame that once again I’m replacing my Siege one already but the tape mode is important to me. Elita-1 looks good, I did tell myself that if they did Arcee as another character I’d buy it so.... joke’s on me so guess. Just as I had hoped, the real Rotorstorm head wasn’t ready yet so they just used Spinister’s for the reveal and saved the real head for now! Glad I stuck with my preorder. Bumblebee is good, lame he’s a Cliffjumper retool but he is good, I’ll get one because why not. The two packs are exciting but now I feel just as stressed about making sure I get them as I did with the Target Seekers because I sense these will sellout quick.

The part-forming "shields" are a real drag.

How else were they gonna recreate Ironhide's hoverboard w/ gun turret?

Bumblebee looks very good but he could have used different accessories from Cliffy, Elita is a worthless undersize writeoff who looks to A. be the reason that Arcee has that crappy unintegrated transformation and B. therefore has Arcee's car mode instead of her own, Rotorstorm is nice, Hubcap, Greasepit, and Exhaust are all good but we knew about them already and even have in-hand pics of the latter two, and Soundwave... He looks good and all, but since he's just a retool of SIEGE Soundwave I think I may be better off kitbashing the G1 figure to have modern articulation. Because SIEGE Soundwave is a tad undersize, and the Micromaster "cassettes" (which he can barely hold) are inaccurate and decidedly undersize. Dirge and Ramjet are good. Prowl needed a new chest, and Ironhide... meh.

Properly, because unlike the joke that came with the "MP" it was made of most of the van volume and had treads? :-x

Wasn't as wallet damaging as I thought it was going to be (apart from all of the handfulls of gi joe stuff)

The July convention exclusive quint pack that wont be avialble to September just shows how crazy the world is from covid at the mo. Also September, that's a way away and enough time to maybe save up some pennys.

So they show Rotorstorm with his new head but then they show Hubcap with the incorrect weapon? All the reviews of Hubcap so far have shown that he's missing the middle, double port hole bazooka piece and instead comes with the cannon piece that originally came from Brunt. That picture shows that Hubcap, as well as BB, comes with the whole CJ bazooka.

walmart has updated the collectors con splash page not to include the attached image. so maybe the previous pre-orders that were listed and sold out have been reversed and people will be able to get these.

Now that was fantastic! Soundwave was everything I had hoped for, and now I don't have to pay scalper prices for Seige Ravage and Laserbeak on Ebay! I'm definitely picking up Soundwave and Bumblebee, and while I have no interest in buying Optimus if it's just the same mould I already have again, I do like the Battle Master that turns into his golden axe.
I was fine with the Earthrise Arcee mould as Arcee, but....bleh, that Elita looks horrible. I probably won't get any of the Selects Deluxes, but I love how Greasepit basically turns into a petrol station with little pumps and everything, it's cute.

Definitely passing on Greasepit, probably passing on Soundwave, probably getting all the rest (unless Prime is a mold I already have, then it's a skip). Some I will have to get two of, like 'Bee. Maybe Soundwave will be for the boy. We'll see.

Prime is just Earthrise Prime sans trailer but with two battlemasters

Looks like that Soundwave is a retool of the Titans Returns version...

Well Looks like I'll be getting a Siege Prime afterall (because the Netflix one comes with 2 BM's). Also I'm going to guess the Leader is Shockwave, not really many other options ;) . As for the BM it comes with, I have no clue, but Hasbro has suckered me in again.

Based on all these reveals:, a little over $120 isn't too bad ($20 Greasepit, $40 for Netflix Prime, and $60 for Netflix *Leader*, though if the same pattern holds for Magnus, I may wait for it to go down to $35, that happened really quickly.
