    lol, very true. Let's rephrase what I said to
    I don't even have the inclination to buy and read IDW Transformer comic books
    As for the toilet paper, I suspect the reason that helps your above info is that the paper here is so.... crumbly....

    I don't have any of the Earthrise toys yet, and this is something that had been mentioned somewhere else already, but now I'm realising what this means for me...

    Every pack includes a piece of the Transformers Universe map and a red decoder to unlock the map's hidden paths! Collect other Earthrise figures to piece together the full map!
    Each Earthrise toy comes with a piece of a map of the Transformers Universe (not sure which universe or what it covers), and you need to get all of the Earthrise toys to get the full map... and it must be a big impressive map since there are likely to be about 50 Earthrise toys. (unless there are only a small number of parts, with each part released with several different toys)

    Now, as good as it might be for some people to have re-released Siege toys in the Earthrise toyline if they couldn't find them during Siege's release, but what about those people who managed to get most or all of the Siege toys... they now have to re-buy several Siege toys if they want to complete the full map (if every toy has a different piece of the map).
    Or what about the people who aren't completists, or can't afford to be, but end up getting most of the map and can't complete it.

    At least with the Cybertron build-a-map, it was only four parts, with one part released with each wave of toys. (and I really hope this is the same this time... if anyone has any info on that, from their first Earthrise toys, let me know)

    Check out the map here with all the pieces from wave 1

    You use the red decoder to read planet names on the map (Junkion and Caminus are two of the planets labelled)

    Sorry to say Earthrise Astrorain and Smashdown's boxes comes with part of the map

    It might show up complete as a poster packaged with an exclusive or maybe Scorponok? Or maybe the Japanese Generations 2021 Book next year?

    You could also probably ask for pieces your missing from others here as not everyone will collect it.

    Yeah while I doubt I'd buy anything which is a repack (maaaaybe Astrotrain), I'd happily give away my map pieces. I throw the packaging & paperwork out with my CHUG toys anyway.


    Looking For:


    - Unite Warriors Glaze (Blades)
    - Blue Microchange MC-04 (02) Familia 1500XG (that's the pre-TF Bumblejumper)
    - Car Robots Indy Heat


    All can be loose or packaged, I don't mind.

    Griff. I still haven't bought an Astrotrain. If I do get the Earthrise version of him I can send the packaging to you.

    My vent is how come 1 voyager and 4 deluxe figures cost approximately between $150 to say $200
    But they make a combined or come in a set and we suddenly get ripped for more money than that?!?!

    Argh damn my love of combiners

    Are you referring to the Seacons sets? They are pricey for what they are

    In addition to the Seacons being a limited production run, there are 6 of them instead of the usual 5.
