But who will you get to be transtectors for the displaced Nitro and Cogman heads?!
IT NEVER ENDS!
But yeah, wow, that is one well-armed and chunky robot that folds up into one clean plane. Fantastic!

I plan on getting a few Nitros and Cogmen to use as Decepticon and Autobot transtectors for the body-less TMs.
I mentioned the head gimmick and my son has decided he wants a Nitro Zues now to be a body for his Titan Master Apeface.
-ZacWilliam, so I guess I'll be applying some purple paint.
It occurs to me that Nitro could also pass pretty well for a member of the People's Liberation Army Mecha Force. Just needs a red redeco - or headcanon that the gray is a super prototype, or something.

EDIT: ... whose Hasbro product code number and UPC barcode are way higher than those for any other figure in the line, so it's not like this is a missing wave 3 figure or anything. More like "the first wave 4 figure" kind of deal there.
I actually wonder if Hasbro will just roll "Premiere Edition" as a recurrent "movie Black series" rather than actually END it in January. Especially with new Transformers films due next year AND the year after.
If it's WW2 Bumblebee, drop in a couple retools for a dragon knight and Decepticon, and it'd be a solid wave 4 to carry into spring before Bumblebee Movie Premiere toys are slated to hit. If nothing else, it will give ample time for retailers to sell off older inventory.
That's largely how they've handled Star Wars Black since 2015.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.
If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.
Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I think some need to remember the movie only JUST came out...and we're stuck with this line up through Christmas, at least.

People want him for troopbuilding, for Thunderwing, because he was a fairly memorable Con from the movie, and because he simply looks good. And he's in the third (last?) wave, meaning you have to hope people payed the inflated price and cleared out all those Grimlocks and Optimuses first.
I mean, I'm fairly hopeful I'll find him in stores, but I'm sure it'll be one of those cases where he appears for one week then he's gone forever.

Gots to have me Steelbane and those weapons. Decent price too, all things considered.

They also have a listing for Scorn, but it has photos of Hound instead.
Meanwhile, there's a listing for Voyager Scorn which has the correct photos but is named "Generations Titans Return Voyager Blitzwing and Hazard" instead (despite there already been a proper listing for Blitzwing).
Scorn is really causing Smyths problems, methinks...

Leader Class Dragonstorm from Distribuidora de Brinquedos Hobby:
Doesn't look like Hasbro stock photos, more like actual in-hand photos by Distribuidora de Brinquedos Hobby themselves.
Also from Distribuidora de Brinquedos Hobby: The Autobot Sqweeks Voice Changer Mask.
Stock photos for the Megatron and Bumblebee masks (which are presumably wave 1 of the assortment) have previously been seen via Toys"R"Us UK, whereas the Sqweeks mask (which presumably debuts in wave 2) was previously only glimpsed at Toy Fair.
