Thanks to TFanPage101, we got news of one place Canadians can order the upcoming Transformers Generations Selects War for Cybertron Micromaster WFC-GS10 Soundwave Spy Patrol 4-Pack. This are the cassette bots that go with Soundwave, Soundblaster and the upcoming Doubledealer. It includes Decepticon Rumble, Decepticon Wingthing, Decepticon Skar and Autobot Knok.

A preorder for this set popped up on EB Games for 29.99 CAD, which is slightly more than two two-packs. This is not listed as an exclusive, so other places like Toysrus may get these as well. But if you don't want to chance it, here is a preorder for you. Please note, the image they chose for the listing is wrong.

TFSource raised their price on Super Megatron from $64.99 to $69.99. I know they do that occasionally on some things that go out of stock elsewhere, but it's odd for them to raise the price while Hasbro is still taking pre-order for $10 less.

We don't know their specific cost for this item, it might be that their middleman costs are higher this time. Something Hasbro doesnt have to worry about. Plus, since I am assuming many americans are going to go to Pulse, TFSource is getting orders from international buyers who can't get from Pulse, and thus there is no to be more competitive in pricing.

Just spitballing here.

For future EB Games related news could you state which Country it's for? EB Games exists in other countries outside of Canada, I know how hard that is for certain people to fathom.

It avoids getting people excited only to be let down. >:oP

Maybe, I just checked my Amazon pre-orders and I have no new Transformers coming until September. They might show up in stores early but idk.

Interesting. Pulse also has Doubledealer listed for July 1. Or approximate July 1. But for others with an approximate date listed as first of the month, it has usually a week or two in. I kinda don't want everything to drop in September, gonna crush my wallet all at once :-(

But there's also a lot more episodes where he's the same size as the other combiners in combined mode. I guess it depends on how you structure your collection. Will he stand next to Omega or the other Decepticon combiners? For me, since I'm not going into OS KO CW Devy and Titan Omega are too tall.

In the end either titan Omega and Devy are too large or all the other combiners are too small. And all the combiners mass shift anyway. :HEADHURTS:
Yeah, it's a real mess thanks to the combiners mass-shifting to be larger than the sum of their parts.

CW Devastator in combined mode is Devastator at his combination-enabled mass-shifted size relative to normal-size TFs, at the price of the individual Constructicons being too big and the combined mode being out-of-scale with other combiners. The same generally applies to Predaking.

The other combiners have their individual members in-scale. They're thus not "step on everyone" size relative to normal-size TFs (note that I specify "normal-size TFs") like they are in the cartoon, although they're still of a respectable size due to not having midget limb-bots.

SIEGE Omega Supreme... He's as big as he should be next to normal-size TFs and mass-shifted Devastator, but too huge next to the standard CW-style combiners much like Devy is.

I will say that there is a way to make the standard CW combiners look the mass-shifted size: Legion-class figures.

Regarding Piranacon/King Poseidon, since I'm assuming he probably came up in this discussion at some point... Piranacon never got to appear in the cartoon since in the US new episodes stopped in 1987, so it's hard to say how big he would have been in it. And the Marvel comics were even more hopeless than the cartoon so using them as a reference is iffy.
But we do have a more solid size reference on the King Poseidon end of things. In Masterforce he was in the same league as Super and God Ginrai size-wise, so being basically standard CW/PotP combiner size works out perfectly there.

Myself, I'd go with an undersize KO of Devastator (easier on space, gives better-scaled individual 'Structies, and it just makes more sense to get a smaller Devy than huger versions of everyone else b/c the others outnumber Devy), an undersize KO of Omega Supreme (once one exists) to have one in show-scale with the combiners, and Titan-class Omega to have a version of him that scaled with normal-size TFs.

Also, there was something in your post not thought through :P Luckily context makes it easy enough to figure out which OS is which.

That's why I use Amazon as much as possible. I can pay off the pre-orders over time using gift cards. If I find something earlier I can cancel the order easily.

Something like "EB Games Canada" may do. How many people read the actual article, and not just look at the title and pretty pictures anyway? :lol:

Regarding "TT-GS05"... amazing what a typo can do.

Hm... I wonder if it would be feasible for HasTak to reissue the Seacons as a single boxset at the Titan price point for Part 3 of WFC, as something of a bone thrown to those who couldn't get them during this first go-around.

I think a God Neptune or some other redeco is possible.

Stupid question, do you think BBTS will have pre-orders up for Megatron of the Super variant?

I would be very much in favor of that, yes. If the price hike wasn't outrageous.

I think they're planning just that, in the same style as the UW box sets. Which may means no Nautilator redeco and just the sword weapon, no guns or Targetmaster modes (not a big loss, really). That would bring the total price down a bit... :-?

Sounds like a great way to piss off the dedicated fans that were willing to pay way more than Titan price now. Limited should stay limited.

So what would happen to Nautilator? Would he be just totally omitted? Or released as a separate single figure?

That "new" clone 2 pack proves they could bot care less.

They might see the clone pack differently, saying that enough time had passed, so a gift set of King Posideon could come out in an equal time frame so maybe 2023ish. At the moment though we can only speculate. I'd imagine that a boxset release is probably the furthest thing from their minds currently as they try and plan the next few months in this bold new world.
