Thanks to fellow Seibertronian WonkoTheSane, we now know that Kremzeek Reviews posted a review for Transformers Earthrise deluxe Runabout. This completes the duo with Transformers Earthrise Runamuck, who is also in the review. He does have a different head, in line with the G1 toy. However, it is a straight redeco for the rest of the car. The G1 versions were actually different cars and they do paint it differently in the front to form some kind of illusion of difference.
While we use the "Earthrise" moniker, it is just used here as a placeholder name until we know how this is actually getting released. It could be a Generations Selects for all we know.

Badly want Smokescreen and maaaybe Airwave after the iron stacks oil rig mechanic base turned out to be such a banger. Every other figure has shown up, all the Voyagers, Leaders,Decpticon Micromasters, two packs and Commanders have been spotted on shelves but not. The damn. DELUXES. AND THE ASTRO PATROL. :-(


Yeah, something weird is definitely up with the distribution of the Deluxe figures. Everything else has been slowly trickling out, but not Deluxe Wave 2. I managed to get the Wave 2 Micromaster sets last week, The Astro Squad and the Race Track Patrol, but now all that I see is Wave 1 Micromaster leftovers and Wave 3, which is apparently just a repack of Direct Hit and Power Punch. I've only spotted the Wave 2 Battle Masters once so far, and in that case, it was just a bunch of leftover Rung repacks and no sign of Slitherfang.

So I've been trying to get out of collecting but all the new Studio Series figures basically changed my mind, so I impulse bought Smokescreen and Quintesson Judge. Smokescreen is one of my favourite figures as of yet, absolutely love it. However, I can honestly say I regret getting the Judge. Its just, not fun. I don't know what I expected from an egg with faces and tentacles, but normally I'm able to find some enjoyment in every purchase but not this one. Already considering selling it to be honest, but I'm going to think on it first.

So I've been asked to source the Ratchet/Lifeline two pack today. After a quick look, is there a reason why this one is like gold dust to find???

(Note: Not talking about Amazon.com, but elsewhere)

It's part of the Amazon exclusive subline Galactic Odyssey Collection.

I'm pretty sure there was a Target Listing with him identified as WFC E41, which would make him part of Earthrise, so I don't think you need the quotes.

So, I know the main hype for Saturday is Kingdom (at least for me) and possibly SS86, but I'm also expecting to see Thrust, Runabout, and the next Galactic Odyssey sets revealed. Which planet would you all like to see revealed next? Personally, I'm hoping for Bioserfa

Well, if Biosphera is going to mostly use beasts, and those would likely be repaints of Kingdom figures, then I'm thinking that planet might be one of the last ones in order to possibly let the regular release versions of those figures make it out first.

My bet would be on Micron since Hasbro has only put out a few micros in Earthrise so far as compared to Siege.

Okay, so apparently Amazon/Hasbro has already set the order of the planets, it is right on the listing for the Paradon set. Micron is next, followed by Biosphera, then Dominus and finally Botropolis.

Earthrise Shockwave arrived today...
IMG_20200923_100824.jpg


:p

Is it a bird, is it a plane, is it selects or is it earthrise?*... WFC-E33 Centurion is decent, it's just brunt after all. Really feels like it could have done with oversizing to be more menacing - hasbro have more ways of reusing something other than just repainting it as I'd happily buy a bigger version, weaponising be darned. Hopefully they stop making army builders exclusives, just release the guy at retail with out the accs and give runabout some wave mates.

Edit: CAUTION, megatrons ball accessory needs the peg shaving down to avoid breaking the peg when trying to remove it from the hand. It's a tight fight upside down and whilst it looks slightly possible to put it in the hand the right way up, it leaves no wibble room to remove it.

The energon cubes don't have pegs but little holes blast effect sized and whilst probably the right size, kinda surprised me as I'm sure they are bigger than other official energon cubes I have (mp, Tf collection/ehobby insecticons) but it has been awhile since they are in storage.

Optimus is teeny tiny (same size as the rod/galv slugs with Unicron). Would have been nice to have a tiny megatron so that bots can have an angel and devil on their shoulders but it is going to be one of the first things to get lost.

Shockwaves a little dull, could really have used paint. Megatron, whilst not accurate, it's a gun and that is all that matters. Soundwave is bigger than blaster/twincast (the ones that came with mp tracks) so that has to be a first.

*we will find out if I get warned for posting in the wrong thread, but I think I can rule out its not a bird or a plane.

I'm guessing those with Centurion must be on the east coast maybe? My orders always ship from that side of the country while I'm on the west so I gotta wait :-(

That is part of it, but I also think it is more Hasbro being weird. I ordered early enough to get the mistake price of $20, but I only got my shipping notice this morning and they haven't even left the distribution center yet while others have already received theirs. Others that did not get the mistake price had theirs ship already, so who knows how Hasbro is running things.

One guess is that I ordered 2 instead of 1, so maybe that held things up for me?

Woot! Just got my Quintesson Pit of Judgement set ordered from HasbroPulse.com! That was a relatively painless process for a convention exclusive order, I must say. The site didn't crash and everything worked as it was supposed to, included the checkout queue. I did have to reload a page due to an error and enter my payment info twice, but I've got my order confirmation emails and everything now. Good luck, everyone! Get one while you can! :)

I got some non-TF items from the sale. I think the big difference this time around is that this isn't just remaining stock left over from SDCC, or a small portion of merchandise allocated for online sales. Since there was no physical convention this year, ALL of the product that was made for the event is available. No one's fighting over crumbs at this point.

Skywarp was only a thing if you didn't order him. Or is this related to being outside the US (which I can't help with)?

I got my Pit of Judgement from Pulse. Everything went through fine, but I had to do the longest CAPTCHA I've ever seen. I wanted to get some other items, like the Arc Troopers and Cobra Commander, but I didn't have as much spending cash as I'dve hoped.

I also got my Centurion drone pack yesterday from Pulse. I will post pictures later, but I was disappointed in the set. I had to shave waaaaaaaaaaaaay too many pegs down for the accessories to work, and I am super lucky that the mace did not break immediately.

At least I got it at the cheap price, helps offset it. And the Drone is really fun too

yeagh I'm doubting I can even remove the Not A Mace from Siege mold megs hand now after trying to put it in the correct way. If Earthrise Megatrons hands are the same as Sieges, shave the peg down before it goes anywhere near him.

I'd get that out of there ASAP and shave it down. I tried to put mine in, and it sealed itself in and by the time I pushed it out with another long 5mm peg, the handle had already cracked, eerily similar to the mace from my Botcon Megatron, which sealed itself in a peg and then snapped off coming out
