Hmm, I got it. They can also throw in an energon cube that can store the 4 cassette-bots and also attach to the front of Soundwave or Soundblaster like when he produces the empty cubes on the cartoon. Granted he might look more like he's preggers if you load the cube with cassettes while attached.

This would be great news if I had a red card.

Just like some of the POTP figures :lol: But I'd love it if they did include little cases for them like the FOC Disks had. It's a minor thing, but I kind of liked it

Hasbro may not mark up for Selects figures, but has EB Games been marking them up on their end, or selling them at standard price? I don't necessarily want to lesser people's expectations, but I don't know if anyone has considered that. Regardless of the pricing, that makes me hopeful that we can still see more Selects figures using Siege molds, like Demolishor and CD Scattorshot from Impactor.

Yay, Red Wing's available again via a method I refuse to use or a ten dollar markup, just what I wanted... :BANG_HEAD:

Eb games has no markup.

Also a 10$ markup is better than the 100% markup you'll be paying in the aftermarket 2 years from now.

Seacons Turtler has been released, and the Japanese reviews are coming in:



Included a detailed look at the accessories, transformation, and even a global comparison with PotP Hun-Gurrr.

Wait, when did Red Wing go out of stock? I've been watching his page for twoweeks waiting for my Red Card. Honestly while I don't like the idea of signing up for a card I will use exactly once, what I paid (30.49) is no more than would pay for a Voyager in store, and its less than I would pay online with shipping from somewhere else.

The more I watched of that video, the more glad I was that I managed to find a place to pre-order Turtler at the last minute. (I still hope the Seacons will be available to order normally at some point, though; this preorder-only stuff is kinda stupid).

Hell yeah! Placed my order for Redwing. I pretty much got a Red card to order him months ago only to find out I couldn't. Was not to happy about that but I guess it worked out in the end.

:MAXIMAL:

My biggest gripe with pre-order only method was how short of a window Hasbro gave to get the orders in, especially on the last 2, which were only given about a week. If the pre-order only method means we get something as great as the Seacons look to be, then I can accept it. The level of retooling, and extra weapons mean there is no way this would fit into a regular release pricepoint, so I do get TT wanting to hedge their bets and go with secured pre-orders in order to proceed. I do have to imagine they will make a number of extras, I'm just not sure how many and if they will be available once the pre-orders are shipped out. My guess would be no from Hasbro Pulse, but possibly from TT themselves.

In a related note, with Hasbro now saying Turtler and Gulf will be available to ship around March 23rd, I wonder if 2 months is going to be Hasbro's standard delay in getting the TT Selects exclusives, or if there was something specific about Turtler and Gulf holding things up.

Get used to it, I am afraid. More and more industries are starting to shift to that because it cuts way down on having money tied up in unsold stock on the company's end and shifts warehousing costs onto end distributors. For example, if BBTS wanted to keep extra stock of the Seacons on hand, its up to THEM to place the order for that number, and take the risk, not on Takara to make the extra number and hope someone buys it.

I doubt we will ever see that for main series releases as those production #s are tied more directly to stores, but for Collector Specific releases? Don't be surprised if this crops up.

Model Train manufacturers have been playing this game from the 2000s and I can wholeheartedly confirm for you it does in fact suck majorly

Yeah. I did take the plunge and pre-ordered all the Seacons from HP. I was hedging my bets hoping I'd have enough funds for the first set in January, and my tax return would cover the rest. Well some unexpected expenses came up and i had to cancel all my pre-orders, only for HP to announce less than a week after I cancel my pre-orders that they will be delayed until March. I know its my own fault for canceling, but I wish there was a better way to obtain these. My order says it was returned to stock after cancellation. I cant have been the only one to cancel my pre-order, so I'm hoping there is at least a little stock at HP when these come out.

Thanks to a heads up from Seibertronian jtprime and TFW2005 user TriBlurr, we have a new rumor to share with you today regarding the next Transformers Generations Selects figure.

This rumor comes to us from a listing at EBgames, which is what TriBlurr found. This listing was found only in the EBgames database, and is not on the website itself. The listing sits alongside some Transformers Earthrise listings, although those are for size classes and not any specific figure. The listing is for a Transformers Generations Selects Micromaster Spy Patrol.

Now this is interesting, seeing as how the normal price for a Micromaster pack is around $10, but this one is, from where the picture gets cutoff, around $20, indicating this will be a 4-pack. The previous Spy Patrols have been the Soundwave cassettes, so who could these potential 4 Micromasters be? It make sense for Buzzsaw and Frenzy to be in this pack, but who else could join them in this pack?

Speculate below, and let us know what you think of this listing in the comments section below!

Thanks to a heads up from Seibertronian Wireless_Phantom and Jelze Goldrabbit, we have news that video reviews are hitting for the upcoming Transformers Generations Selects voyager class Turtler. The video review we are sharing with you today is in Japanese, but it includes a lot of pertinent information that a lot of you will find interesting.

The review focuses in on Turtler's 3 different modes, his accessories, as well as some comparisons to the figure he was heavily retooled from: Power of the Primes Hun Gurr. We get some great looks at this figure and some good comparisons to to his original mold mate. Turtler is set to become the torso to King Poseidon, the long awaited update to the final scramble city styled combiner from G1.

Check out the review below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

People bitched a lot about the over-use of the Silverbolt mold/engineering in CW and POTP but in all seriousness, this guy manage to look quite different in both individual molds. its only in combined mode that its more apparent but, then again, there aren't too many ways to make a scramble city-type combiner to begin with.
