Wow the releases are so messed up at the moment. Greasepit hasn't officially been announced yet, but that's the second time this week I've heard someone say they have him. I also realised today we got Scorp here before America.
It does seem likely that he and Exhaust were going to be in that reveal, but Pulse decided to eek the reveals out a bit to make more Fan Fridays. It's hard to guess what was supposed to go where this year. I don't think *all* of the Selects toys would have been kept for SDCC, but there does seem to be a lot of confusion about what is coming out when. Feels again like Hasbro making snap decisions in the US about their market and not thinking about the rest of the world.
I imagine plans have and are changing in the current season and something slipped through the cracks here. I like Hasbro forgetting the date on the cases, or worse sending them out with the wrong date on: that's typically Hasbro!
Yes that's what I mean - all the ones with 24/7 embargoes would have been SDCC announcements with immediate availability like last year, but because SDCC won't be the event this year that it usually is, they're spreading the toys out to create these Fan Friday mini events instead. But because that seems to be being done a little ad hoc by Pulse, the communication is getting to all the right places. The fact Exhaust was originally 24/7 but has now appeared in some places suggests Pulse changed the 24/7 to last week, told everyone, then changed it again and didn't tell everyone.

I've got two young kids so it is really a necessity. I was only going to get WFC trilogy but then realised how many G1s were missed out, that's when I added POTP, TR and CW plus a few extras to fill in some gaps.
The benefit of moving house is that I have built up a hefty back-log of toys to open in a month or so. Got to point of thinking: 'opening toys means more bubblewrap for moving them' so they have stayed in their prisons until I have flitted.
AN ORGY OF PLASTIC AWAITS ME!!!
