Thanks to Twitter user vicegripx, we're happy to confirm that the first wave of Earthrise deluxe figures are out at U.S. retail! He spotted them at a Target in Tacoma, Washington, as evidenced by the photo below.

Via reddit, we also have a sighting for the first wave of leaders, Astrotrain and Optimus Prime, which were said to be found at a Target in Idaho.

We reported last week that the Micromasters from this highly anticipated line had shown up in Portland, Oregon, and with these sightings, the rest can't be far behind. Originally due to hit in March (as many preorders have that date, Earthrise seems to be following the pattern of seeing figures hit retail earlier than expected, as was the case with Power of the Primes and Siege.

Are you excited to see these figures start showing up in the next little while? Let us know what you think below!

- Brainmaster: The Titan Master gimmick is perfect for that
- Super Mode: The PotP Leader Class, as said before
- Combining with another into a Brave-style "Great" form

It's the last that may prove the hardest to do, look at how Legends Godbomber and God Ginrai turned out. Not impossible, but may be too big for his own good.


I think that's something Earthrise could handle very well actually. We've almost seen proof of concept with the Weaponizer gimmick. Only thing is, that if they do go for all three gimmicks, I'd actually say it should be a Commander class two pack of leaders like CW Devastator. That way the joints can be beefed up to hold the weight, while not being too tight on a hollower limb. The Commander price point might have enough of a budget that would allow for three solid figures that combine together

Wouldn't commander class equal to a voyager and a leader? That's how I always envisioned them doing Victory Saber (using the logic that Victory Leo was a weaponizer in Voyager Class)

Well thanks for the heads up on Tacoma, I live fairly close so I ran over to that store after work. No deluxes left but they actually had Prime! So that should hold me for a bit.

Although, I'm mostly making that assumption because of different theories I've heard about why Apeface has that material. Even if Snapdragon does have that material, I'm fine with it. Apeface having that didn't ruin the figure for me in anyway
After fiddling with my figure for a couple of months I don't think they could have made Apeface without that material considering how some of the tabs work. I'm just really, really, really glad none of the Siege figures, and hopefully none of the Earthrise figures, have had any of that rubbery stuff like Titans Return Mindwipe and Krok has, the tip of one of Mindwipe's wings broke removing him from a storage container while in bat mode :-(


Speaking of which, I took my TR Wolfwire out of storage the other day and sure enough, that back panel was broken at the hinges.

Gets paranoid and checks my wolf wire, everything is fine. Haven't checked mind wipe though I didn't have any problems with the classics/rts junkticons so I don't think I'm as heavy handed/unlucky as some. I did just risk breaking a ss vw bee folding windows away that the instructions avoid folding despite the bits having a hinge.

Be careful with that SS Bee, I do the same and I think I spotted some stress marks in that clear plastic.

Mine will most likely not transform again, at least not for a while.

On the Earthrise topic, I am surprised the voyagers seem to be the figures that we have been slowest to get news on: last for reviews, no sighting so far, etc.

I do plan to buy more smashdowns though

It is a dream, one that I might fulfill depending on how long wave 1 Battlemasters stick around.

I love that toy so much

I am really surprised she hasn't been repainted yet. It's just her for her mold, whereas everyone else got a repaint/retool in some fashino.

Nice to see that Sky Lynx is the Commander for the year. I might actually grab this one because I missed the CW one, and that's gotten too expensive for what it was and what problems it had. And Scorponok definitely looks great. Only issue I have is the ramp looks a tad too wide in base mode, but that's fine. Definitely excited for the upcoming conventions so HasTak can show these guys off

I am not to sure that these are the real earthrise figures, they look more like concept arts. I am also pretty sure that the micromasters are there G1 figures and Wheeljack is just pulled from some other media (card game maybe?)

I am also disappointed that we are getting another large autobot in the form of skylinx, give us more decepticons! I need a commander class armada style Tidal Wave!
