I only finished A333 Assignment 4 today then spent most of the day with further study. I am knackered so saving it for tomorrow. Stress from re-arranging wedding due to bloody covid means I now have a Core Optimus to open too.
Kingdom 4-pack is already listed at a couple of Australian retailers - HobbyCo and Myer (not on their public website yet). HobbyCo will have it for au$153 and Myer will have it for au$160.
F0994 TRA TARGET GEN WFC KINGDOM 4 PACK
Neither retailer has any details or info about the contents at this time. Maybe it will be revealed at the fan-fest on the 9th. (the product name actually has "Target" in it, so is likely to be a Target exclusive in America)
It isn't supposed to come out until September, so it is a bit early for it to be listed on an Australia retailer's system.
We've had a multi pack rumour before. I was hoping it would be Core jet repaints. Seems not. In days gone by £90 would have got you a CW boxed set. Maybe this isn't four deluxes but a mixture of size classes.
Given the way prices are rising it could well be four Core!
From straight repaints I'd rather see the ER jet mould get the kind of hammering the Siege one did. It seems generally the Siege moulds have been used over and over (Sideswipe, cough) whereas the ER equivalents haven't had as much use. I'd love a jet three pack of Sun & Acid storm plus the generic purple background filler from MTMTE.
On one hand, I applaud them for actually giving us something that isn't just a Tron VW pretending to be a four million year old alien vehicle, ala the rest of Siege.
On the other hand, it's...not...great. slavish adherence to sunbow... it was bad on starscream, but it's actually ruining what could be a great toy, here. VW parts in robot are awful, and forces his entire vehicle mode to be the worst kibble we've seen in a long time.
And why they make him look like Charlie Brown? What's up with the zigzag? Edit: OH! That's his front end!
