The Lone Star State Sighting


Recommended Posts

hey DK that Premium BB is around but man is it hard to find. I saw one and bought it at the Wal-Mart on Midway and 635. On another note a few weeks ago I noticed Anime Pop om Midway and Belt Line has a moved to the store across the parking lot and now carries some Encore figures. saw a Prime, Megs, Starscream and Soundwave there.



Cool...I havn't been to Anime Pop in quite a while. Last time I went there they had crap for TF's.


I'll keep looking. I hit all my usual Walmarts, Targets, and the TRUS this past weekend and havn't found one. Wierd thing is it doesn't look like BBTS or any of the other online options are selling him either. I'm finding alot of Premium Blackouts, Primes and Megs. I may get a megs, I think I'de rather just get the sword part of the prime and not buy a whole nother one. I already ordered one of those Classic Ultra Magnus armor sets so I kinda blew my TF budget for the month anyway.


I need to probably head out and check some other areas I don't usually shop in.

WOO HOO..finally got a Premium BB at Walmart in Lewisville today!! It's the only one they had though. SO nothing new on the sightings end really.





Was hoping this was a sighting of animated TFs


NO sorry...especially not at Walmart. They are rather fire exit about their release dates on new figures. NOW I am fixing to head out to one of my favorite Targets to shop at that has a track record for putting stuff out early. They had the first wave of movie figs out almost a month early. I'm not saying that they WILL do this with Animated but I've been pretty lucky here before. Will let you know what I find, if anything. :schin

Well if I havn't found anything by this weekend here in the DFW area...I may just head down there.

Good luck, guys. It seems like a haphazard release...but this Wal-Mart has a recent trend of leaking stuff out before the other stores in town. They had Dark Knight toys a good two weeks before anyone else did, and now these Animated toys (with an end cap!) show up crammed on the shelves...

    • Crankcase is hilarious. It's so awful and awesome at the same time. The entire front of the vehicle comes off, turns sideways, has a little piece flip around and becomes a gun. Ever since we first seen pictures of him I was wondering what they were doing with the front of his vehicle/chest. I never would've expected that though. It sure is a different design choice that's for sure. I can't wait for the upgrade kit to give him his shoulder cannons. I wonder how those will be implemented. I hope at least better than SS86 Jazz's shoulder cannon. Dead End is what it is still. Nothing to really talk about. I still don't like how Hasbro makes the lower legs longer than the upper legs for Transformers constantly though. Many of their designs would work better with longer upper legs like Dead End. Pointblank looks good. I understand the hate some have but I don't have that same hate. I just hate the Targetmaster still. We just had better ones that they're still using. Did it really cost that much to add one in at this point? Sure it's double the parts count and isn't gangmolded but still, it's not like Pointblank himself is all that complicated to begin with and the Battlemasters have long since made their money back with using those molds. They could've moved him into a wave with reissues or slight retools to eat some of the cost for that wave too instead of having it a wave with major retools and new molds entirely. Again, I can't wait to see the upgrade kit to give him that engine block spoiler gun thing to finish off the center rear of the vehicle mode. Hopefully they'll remember to put a 5mm port in the middle of it for a Targetmaster. Yeah Peacemaker already fills that spot but we all know that someone is going to make that piece to fit there. Skullgrin looks good but I don't like it as Skullgrin. I still think the original Generations Skullgrin is better overall. I do like all the weapons on this new one though. I'm just a little confused about what the vehicle mode is really supposed to be. It has treads in the back but nothing in the front. Is it a tank? Is it a half-track? Is it a hover tank? What is it? That head is awesome though and beats the older head by quite a bit. Transmetal II Megatron. Transmetal II Megatron. Wow. I just hope that the dragon neck/upper chest area is mistransformed. Or that something can be done. That was very much a bad choice if that's indeed all it can be. I can't wait to have to tighten up all those ball joints to get everything just like I want. Cryotek is the obvious redeco but I want one more other than him. I seen a digibash of him as RiD 2001 Megatron/Gigatron and while it looks good, I don't want that. I'd much rather have this redone as Beast Wars II Galvatron. It's not like the drill tank was all that much better than TMII Megatron's dragster so it's easy to leave out. Once you take out the drill tank, the dragons don't look too dissimilar to each other at that point. Yeah Galvatron didn't have a dragon arm but I'll take what I can get when it comes to a new toy for him.
