It would come with two soundtracks: the eighties classic and one featuring dubstep and the VAs are popular Youtubers.

I just couldn't think of worse music than disco...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 11:35 AM)

What were you trying to imply with the mocking sarcasm, though? Nobody suggested that '80s music was any more "of it's time" than '70s music.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 11:18 AM)

I said that disco wouldn't fare much better with the same context: media is property of it's time; biases, culture and limitations are all inherent in that. Some stuff can be brought forward because of an inherently timeless nature or the simplicity with which it was made but lots of media is a time capsule of the period of when it was made.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 08:46 AM)

I'm not sure what you're trying to imply, or what you even think I said.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 08:11 AM)

Yeah, cause disco would make the transition so much better...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 07:17 AM)

I feel the '80s music would be jarring when running over current-day CGI instead of well, '80s visuals.

Not a remake, reanimated scene for scene, like that fan vid titled they were always real to me.

Because we need more remakes these days.

@  Demovere Xeno : (19 October 2020 - 10:36 PM)

@Maximus: I paired the Battle Patrol with Ironworks and they look good together, though the Off Road Patrol would probably fit best as vehicles you're likely to find at a construction site.

@  ZakuConvoy : (19 October 2020 - 09:39 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 04:09 AM)

My local Walmart FINALLY got a restock of Generations during the early September reset and got a big shipment of Earthrise wave 1 (the first I’d seen around here). IF, and that’s a big IF, they restock I’m expecting a bunch of wave 3. Or wave 2. But we’ll be skipping one of those waves.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 04:08 AM)

Barricade hanging around

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 04:08 AM)

Brunt barely appeared here at all, wave 3 was pretty much skipped for a big load of wave 4, with Impactor and

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Brunt is shelfwarming around me. One walmart moved the whole lot of them off to a side shelf, but couldn't be added to liquidate them.

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2020 - 09:01 PM)

Ironworks is a plague. No idea if it was overproduced or if nobody wants it but thing's clogging shelves.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 October 2020 - 04:23 PM)

My walmart the few times I go in will be lucky to have two or three transformers period.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 October 2020 - 10:29 AM)

I mostly just see walls of Ironworks. And the occassional Siege Hound.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2020 - 08:44 AM)

condolences.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 08:40 AM)

My local Symths is still chock full of Earthrise wave 1.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 08:24 AM)

Yup, generally so much they don't bother with any other waves as the existing stock doesn't sell out.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

All the damn time.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

If there's anything there's going to be plenty of stock, it's wave 1.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

I'm really not worried about wave 1 of a new line EVER.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 07:47 AM)

At least you got listings for kingdom. walmart canada won't list them until they're actually in stock and that could very well never happen. I'm gonna get mine from BBTS cause I'm not missing out on the maximals.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:32 AM)

And I don't buy the "they all sold out" explanation. The Kingdom figures are still listed.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:32 AM)

I don't see any of Friday's reveals at Walmart.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:23 AM)

There's a difference between "sold out" and "no trace of a listing".

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:23 AM)

There is still a listing for the scalped and sold out Walmart exclusive limited edition version of Gigawatt.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:22 AM)

But there should still be a listing.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 October 2020 - 06:30 AM)

Probably got scalped and sold out in seconds.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 04:10 AM)

And I don't see links anywhere either.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 04:10 AM)

So did Walmart somehow fail put up the Headmasters preorders as promised by Hasbro, or have the listings been taken down again? I cannot find them.

I've been trying to stay on top of card reveals for the front page, but this site has a big repository of all the currently revealed ones, including some characters who aren't actually in the Siege toyline. Wave 4 is going to be a Siege tie-in too, so any toy characters not in Wave 3 might show up there instead.

This has nothing to do with the topic, but I really like that art of Nightstick's black-beam gun mode. That's exactly how I imagine his weapon effect looking.

 

And I, uh, literally just this second got the connection between his name and gun mode.

So at the moment, we know the names of all the Divisions and Ranks, and most of the Units. Just need Omega Supreme's and Swindler/Roadhandler's. Omega will almost certainly be added to the official site's little listing whenever he drops. Dunno about other one though, maybe wait for a more popular Deluxe-or-bigger Autobot in the same unit? (or ask at whatever event and pray they know something this obscure)

Chances are we'll be able to get Swindler and Roadhandler's unit from the TCG! They're doing cards for Micromasters who aren't in Siege, so I have to assume that all the ones who are will definitely get cards.

They might not be until Wave 4 though, because they've already revealed 46 of the 48 total characters for Wave 3. Though I suppose there's no reason they couldn't be those last two?

EDIT: Except that Flak has been revealed and Top Shot hasn't, and I'd like to think they wouldn't break up a team between waves. So yeah, Swindler/Roadhandler are probably Wave 4.

So I guess Red Wing doesn't have a badge?

Combat Megs has one, and Red Wing is part of Siege unlike Swoop and Ricochet...

I was waiting to see if he'd prove that the box interior is a checklist of sorts, though now I'm not so sure.

I mean, there's two "Seeker" badges, Megatron's got his, and Smokescreen would logically be one of those Infantry ones, so I dunno.

Yeah, I found that the most noteworthy thing in the article. It was probably just them covering their bases and future-proofing the system, but there's a part of me that's hoping there was a commander class Broadside/Tidal Wave mold on the design team's mind.

Ooooh, official info!

 

I must admit I've kinda lost track of these things when they announced a billion exclusives, though it looks like that box design isn't any cool secret checklist or anything. Not sure what "Specialist" is all about -- it's mentioned but not explained in the article. The main site refers to Ratchet as one, but goodness knows how that fits into everything.

Specialist is a non-commissioned officer rank.  A lot of GIJoe characters had the Specialist rank.

Wow had to DIG to find this thread. Probably just answered my own question but has anyone been keeping track of these for Earthrise?

I was just cutting out the maps on my Grapple, CJ, and Ironworks and noticed they all have these badges still, just under the characters feet in the packaging.

-ZacWilliam, I could be wrong but the Ironworks one looked new to me.

Looking at the charts at the start of this thread and if I'm reading things right looks like Soundbarrier is a Private in the Engineering division (sounds right) of the ... Air Command? Ok, THAT is surprising.

-ZacWilliam, Space Command I would have understood, because of the idea they pitched for the Modulaters being part of a Colonization protocol but Air Command doesn't make much sense to me...
