You would be right to have a bad feeling about this 3-pack that appears to be made as follow-up to the Titan Nememsis Spaceship release. The pack appears to include premium editions of Earthrise Megatron, Netflix Soundwave, and Siege Shockwave figures with accessories. Worth noting is the word "Series" in the title, which suggests Takara has plans for more.
Yes, it is THE Netflix Soundwave that everyone wanted back in the day. Unfortunately, we will have to add another Megatron and Shockwave that most probably don't want. The set also includes Megatron's throne and Laserbeak as well. The pack has a Japan price of 15000 JPY / $100 USD with a release date expected for March 2024. We'll have to wait until October 6th for the full drop with details, along with all the other stuff Takara TOMY has coming soon.
This certainly is a thing.
I have all three.
I hate two of them.
The third I have only a mild interest in getting as it looks really good. That being Shockwave.
Earthrise Megatron is a trash toy. Siege Megatron on the other hand is awesome. Nearly every single redone part sucks. That is quite the accomplishment to pull off.
Ditto for Soundwave. Okay, I might hate on it a little more than I should. I do like Siege Soundwave and dislike Netflix Soundwave though. They didn't retool quite enough and well, I hate inanimate object alt modes. I'd rather have the space barge thing. Luckily I already have both versions so I can just use whichever one I want.
Shockwave looks good. But do I NEED another Shockwave? No, probably not.
At the very least this set proves to me that I was right buying a bunch of upgrades for all my Megatrons recently. Why? Because I don't think they'll be redoing him anytime soon which is sad as again, Earthrise Megatron sucks. Just make a good leader Megatron that turns into a tank. Galvatron and Armada Megatron came out great. Do that but with G1 Megatron now. There's been a rumor that a leader G1 Megatron will come out in Studio Series but I don't recall having seen or heard anything about it since. So it might be one of those that are indeed just a rumor.
Oh and I don't want another throne.
Seriously if they only re-release soundwave in this pack people are gonna have a fit. I'm already pissed off just thinking about it.
