Huh, didn't know Bluestreak was going to be released via SDCC timing.  Ah well, I've got my KO and am happy. 

 

What's been shown thus far is going to be saving me a lot of money.  I'll get SkyLynx, but none of the repaint limbs.  G2 Superion is tempting since that's the version I had as a kid, but nope.  And fucking Scattershot is a Silverbolt remold?!  Fuck you Hasbro.  Seriously.  Doesn't even have a new Gestalt head.  That's just lazy.

 

They're milking these molds to death, and then will wonder why sales dried up.  Victorion makes my eyes bleed, and has two fucking Alpha Bravo molds?  The Fuck?!

 

Wallet is happy, but I'm not...

I'm in for the Sky Lynx limbs since I am a sucker for G1 cars and they combine.  I will skip the G2 stuff since I never liked it.

 

Victorion -- I still don't understand why this is generating such buzz.  It's a "female" combiner...made up of repainted males.  I'll give them this -- the combined Victorion looks different and interesting, and more uniform than most combiners, but those colors...especially on all the individual robots...I'm with you.  My eyes hurt.  I will probably get this, then regret it.

 

Fans voted for two Alpha Bravos.  I don't understand that either.  Some people really seem to like it, but I think Alpha Bravo and Offroad are weak sauce molds to begin with, and not just because they aren't original team members.  They suck on their own (lack of) merits.

 

I don't understand Scattershot.  Are we getting Technobots or not?  The combiner name listed is "Betatron", which says to me they're slapping together some hastily repainted things and calling it a combiner.  Hell with that.  "Scattershot" looks awful and "Betatron" doesn't even deserve a diss.

 

You know the repainting has gotten out of control when Hasbro trumpets "Hey kids!  Look, new hands and feet!  Isn't that awesome?!?"

Don't care about RID. Already have the previous reissues for Blaster and Insecticons. Never cared for or have room for Trypticon.

 

Psyched to finally get the new MP Starscream mold. Can finally get rid of my old Walmart MP Starscream

I saw Devastator at TRU today.  159.99.  I didn't buy it since I got an order coming from Amazon. They're out in the wild now!

Sometime, probably but not guaranteed within the next week.  I have seen less chatter about it this year.  I don't know if there is less demand, though probably.  Still, I expect all the Transformer junk to sell out quickly this year.  There's no vastly overpriced Knights of Unicron set this time.

 

I checked obsessively last year and still missed it since it when live when I was asleep.  I'll order the Arcee/Chromia/Disappointment set if I can, but I won't lose sleep if I don't.

Their online store says July 28, I know most stuff went in the blink of an eye the last couple years. I'm hoping to try to snag the Dr Strange set if the price isn't insane.

The Covenant of Primus book is currently a Prime Day Lightning Deal on Amazon for $29.99 (regular Amazon price $59.99).  Currently 24% claimed, about 2 hours, 40 minutes to go.

I tried a few supposedly valid codes for 20% and then 10% off, but they're either expired or don't work on the SDCC Combiner Hunters set. :(

Codes never work on exclusives.  Do you still have the 20% code?  The silver Megatron is back in stock...

 

Class of 85, Combiner Hunters, and Devastator still available as of now.  Wow.  I am impressed, as this is the first year this hasn't been a total cluster-you-know-what.
