A mini-news item for you here. Hasbro have updated their Transformers Facebook page with the Transformers Earthrise galaxy map “so far”.
Big deal, right? The map doesn’t show the planets or any of the other juicy details you get from looking at the map segments using the decoder included with the toys. However, if you look at the bottom right, you can see “Map Wave 1” with the numbers 2, 3 and 4 next to it.
This seems to suggest that Earthrise will only consist of four waves of toys, versus the five we saw for Transformers Siege.
You can also see the planned full size of the map so far – which some enterprising fans are already analysing to work out how many hexagons are present, and using the formula of “hexagons per size class” attempt to work out how many more toys we’ve yet to see.
(For those wondering – once we account for the known Wave 2 and 3 toys, we’ve got another 29 1/3 hexagons relating to future toys. This doesn’t count guys like Scorponok, Sky Lynx, or exclusives – we don’t know how big their map pieces will be).
