It's more or less the same with the Sparkabots/Sparkler Minibots, Triggerbots, etc.

^ Fangry has just been done, probably as a Target exclusive. Hopefully people might part the sets out, although I could use a yellow Cliffjumper/Bumblebee as a base for a Throttlebot.

There's also a BW Ravage as a Pulsecon exclusive with the original, which suggests there might be a more regular release due to the retooling.

The crowd of attention-hungry leakers on the bigger boards seem to be indicating that Ravage will get a regular release in 2022/23 some time, if I'm understanding right.

I'm glad they're making a Fangry but I'm really unimpressed that it's part of a $100+ store exclusive four-pack. Unlike Ravage, I'd be pretty shocked if it got a single release.

"Bumblebee. but it's actually just Hubcap with Bumblebee's head" is pretty hilarious, as if they're not going to spam the VW mold for all it's worth the second their exclusivity deal with Walmart expires. I'd bet a lot of these wind up wearing third-party Bumper heads, though honestly I'd be surprised if they didn't make an official toy of him too...

The Ravage looks great, and I hope I can get one, but I want to see some physical reviews first. The only one out of the Buzzworthy Bumblebee pack I want is Fangry. I could see them doing all of these figures as Selects versions as well. I mean, other than Fangry, Hubcap/Bumblebee, and a toy accurate Blackarachnia…. Did anybody want a Nemesis Primal? Maybe me if I hadn’t found the Netflix version of Optimus Primal, but I could probably have gotten one cheaper off of eBay instead of shelling out 100+ for one figure I might have wanted and three I didn’t really care about.

I know one figure I want to get is the Kingdom Road Rage, but that’s supposedly going to be a Target exclusive as well. And the last time I looked in Target(last Wednesday) they didn’t have any Transformers at all. Just lots and lots of empty pegs. Maybe it’s not out yet?

Ravage's alt-mode isn't the best thing ever.

Nemesis Primal confuses me. Optimus is already mostly black, so the Nemesis scheme doesn't really seem like much of a change.

I'd also be up for some Road Rage, but those Target exclusives are really hit or miss up here. The Micromasters and Rainmakers were easy to find at Toys'R'Us, but Redwing and the Earthrise stuff either didn't show up at all or was super scarce. A Selects Loudpedal would be nice to see from that mold too.

You're not kidding about his alt-mode. That's the worst looking cassette ever. :D

Kidding aside, I'm hoping all of those pics are of prototypes. I don't mind if they're going to give him a jaguar alt-mode, but he shouldn't have the fur patterning. It makes his head look kind of weird and his body look rough.

My idea for getting a Road Rage is keep trying Target's website, BBTS and eBay. I'll still probably get it that way for cheaper than getting a KO Masterpiece from China.

I'm more alarmed by the state of the reissue cassette Ravage that comes with him. It looks warped. Hopefully it's a factory error and not mold wear.
