Re: Earthrise appreciation thread

I broke down and got Earthrise Grapple today....awesome figure, but watch out for the two pegs from the crane base that go into his feet! One broke on mine during transformation....luckily, I was able to exchange it

Re: Earthrise appreciation thread

Finally got a Wheeljack a few days ago... and he really is one of the best figures from War for Cybertron.

So glad to get him even at full price at Walmart (first and only time I've seen him) as TrU is just not getting any so the BOGO sale has been pointless... heck, every place I've seen Earthrise figures, they have everything else BUT Wheeljack.

Biggest complaint about it is the cheap weapon.. good thing I did have a spare gun that works well with him.

Couple more comparisons



Not Earthrise but we don't have a Siege thread for this purpose

Picked up the combat con micromasters so I could get bogo with a ratbat set.

Really have been meh on the micros but these two seem a step above the ones in siege. A bit more to them both transformation wise and they overall are more interesting toys. Still some uancceptable flimsiness/lack of solid tabbing but oh well.

Nice shots, now pair up Classics Scream with Siege Red Alert 😉 I’ve been mixing and matching my Siege and Classics collection. Most of the Siege is for “cybertronian” modes but figures like Henkei/United Inferno/Grapple will be my “cybertronian” versions of them. Same for my United Hoist and Trailbreaker.

Re: Earthrise appreciation thread

I panic bought Hoist at Walmart yesterday at full price. I'm quite impressed with it actually. Nice looking bot, probably the only must have for me out of the wave. Great poseability too.
Transformation is simple, but pretty much what it should be. I wish they had done something else with the hands just hanging there, but it's not bad. He'll be in bot mode most of the time anyway.

The one oddity I noticed, the first thing I did was put the cannon thing in his hand, and it wouldn't fit. I jammed it through his fist from the bottom and I guess that loosened up his 5mm hole and now it fits in the top of his hand as intended. I guess they made the tolerances too precise.
