I love Snapdragon's rocket mode, he looks worth the wait.

How many more waves of ER past what we've currently seen figures for are left?
Are have we seen the end and the next waves will be from Kingdom?

As far as we know, we're missing the entirety of Wave 4, plus exclusives, and then Kingdom is next, unless we get another Siege situation where a bonus Wave 5 gets added (which is probably unlikely).


Right on. So Thrust and Runabout are confirmed. Well Thrust is basically...
Wonder who else we'll see in wave 4. ????

Actually, Ol' Willy-Jameson pointed out on the FFF thread that the signs point to Thrust being an exclusive rather than a Wave 4 figure, so all we have on Wave 4 is Runabout (although Hasbro doesn't usually put repaints of the same mold back-to-back in the waves, so that's...odd if that is the case).

Oh good, another new figure that will never show up in Connecticut, and Snap is the one I've been waiting for! Arrrghhh!!!

We're still missing Tracks and Skids from the '85 cars. I was convinced we'd see Tracks in Earthrise. That would also set up a Selects Road Rage, since Hasbro has been releasing many of the Diaclone decoes.

I initially really liked the look of Runamuck, until I saw the back of the legs...
But who knows. Man, getting or not getting MP Starscream is going to have a huge impact on whether I buy any of the many figures I'm on the fence about.
This duo is a couple of maybe's for me... I think they look pretty good, and it's cool they purposely share the same mold.

I always pose my figures from the back (I don't) or wherever they are the most hollow (also, don't).

sol magnus, word of advice: Don't get into a debate with Sowndwave76 about mold hollows. You won't get anywhere and it will just leave you drained - take it from me X.X

Looking at that pic of Snapdragon: Totally called it, he looks much better in situ than in the stock photos and renders.

I think one of the final product shots confirmed that he wouldn't have that odd white plastic like Apeface did. Still, it's nice to see it and know for sure.

That ivory-colored nylon plastic is essential for keeping certain of Apeface's parts from breaking. And I wouldn't mind if Snapdragon had it (not that his transformation needs it from the looks of him). But the renders and especially the Takara stock photos... They made the white look bad, obscured some of the detail...

So Runabout isn't going to be a Selects or Pulse exclusive, and he's not being put in a multipack with some other figures I don't want? He'll be available at retail? This day keeps getting better and better!

Genuinely surprised by this news. I thought Hasbro was all about tearing teams and duos apart and making us pay more to collect them these days. Was resigned to this being a Selects release or, as you say, being bundled with someone/something to put the price up a notch or three e.g. Siege Skywarp. If true I'm happy that one of my most anticipated releases (LOVE the Battlechargers!) will come out at the retail price point, but the cynic in me suspects there'll be a catch somewhere like only available during rare planetary alignments from a long-dead wizard in a burned-down forest @ midnight, or similar.

Here’s some more pics of Snapdragon in both T-Rex and robot mode. I’ve got between 30 and 40 of the War for Cybertron line and I’ve gotta day this guy might be my favorite. The usage of color is fantastic. They did a great job recreating the G1 aesthetic while updating it in every way. If you spot Snapdragon, he’s definitely worth picking up.

Note: On his package images he looks like he’s got more white in him, similar to Apeface. His actual coloring is somewhere in between Apeface and Earthrise Starscream.

That's definitely interesting that 5/6 ER seekers could end up exclusives...
Figured at most it would've been 2-3. I guess Hastak thought with what was released in the Siege line that trying to have 6 seekers following so closely in ER couldn't justify full retail releases of each.
If it's true fingers crossed he's as easy to get as the conehead 2-pk.

Excellent. Maybe my preorder will arrive soon. Target was projecting a delivery of at least a couple of months from now.

The alt mode is a little stark but the mold is nice. Looks to be exactly the same as the box image. Good job Hasbro.

Yesterday was my (18th) wedding anniversary, and I get paid on Thursday. BBTS has Scorponok in stock, and Hopefully if it is still there Thursday Morning I'm pulling the trigger. It's neat that Scorponok and Skylynx have been spotted at Target retail. I'd love to find them both and get a 5% recard discount at purchase, but I have little faith, even with 10 stores I could drive to, to find it actually in a store near me.

I still haven't seen the clones or Seekers, despite seeing the endcaps and tags for them.

My Doubledealer should arrive tomorrow, excited to get him. And hopefully Snapdragon ships soon. I'm ready for him and to pair him up with his buddy!

Mine should too. Well it should have arrived today. Target used Fedex Smartpost, which hands of to the local post office and mine kinda of sucks with packages. Fingers crossed for tomorrow.

Get your rifles ready and put on your mask, because the hunt is on! Both Transformers Earthrise commander class Skylynx and Titan Class Scorponok have been found at Target. That's right, Target is carrying the Titans class in stores.
The specific listings are the following:
Skylynx was found at Target in Birmingham, Alabama by Edhaskel. The DPCI number is 087-16-4497.
Scorponok was found at Target in Boise, Idaho for $159.99 by Dirge121. The DPCI number is 087-16-1984.

Also, regarding these two toys, Skylynx is currently shipping from Megalopolis, and the EB Games stores that ordered him in Canada are getting their Scorponok orders in.

If you have found these toys, please let the Seibertronian community know by posting in the corresponding Sightings threads.
