Has anyone seen Alt Skids in the Dallas/Plano area lately? I checked late last week at multiple Targets, Wal-Marts and TRU's and not one store had any Alts whatsoever, save the 100,000,000 boxes of Alt Ravage and Shockwave at TRU in Frisco. Seriously, the shelf is piled 5 high. :wtf

Hey for the Whichitians in the topic, Target has the Beast Wars 10th Reissues,  A lone Skids, Prowl, Sunstreaker, Tracks, and General Grevious SWTF. They also had the Minicons. Big Starscream was also wearing a red tag.

Last night picked up Alt Prowl in the red box at TRU on Westheimer.  Slim pickins on their shelf, but they do have like 8 two packs, a couple of Mudflaps, evacs and Ligerjacks.


Target on San Felipe had one Tracks in the bubble (left it there)





Nitroconvoys and the rest.

I finally found a single Alt Skids at the Target on Park and N Dallas Tollway. They had Alts Tracks and Prowl in the bubble packaging left. Also Supreme Starscream for $32 still. I'm waiting for it to drop to $22 like the reports I've heard about in Austin.

    • Guess I'm just going to have to wait until mine comes in so I can see some actual relevant size comparisons. It seems nobody wants to make the ones that should be made, not even Optibotimus. The main one being Takara Legends Super and God Ginrai. Then GS Dai Atlas, GS Star Convoy/PotP Optimus, PotP Rodimus, PotP Optimal Optimus and CW Ultra Magnus to lesser and lesser degrees. I also have my GUOP with thigh, leg and foot upgrades waiting to size up to Star Saber as well.  Why you may ask? Because Star Saber and Victory Saber were not only scaled to the current Generations scale, they were also scaled to the older one too just like PotP Optimal Optimus but in reverse. They were made specifically to stand next to Super and God Ginrai, Dai Atlas and Star Convoy. And by default, the others I mentioned as well since they were all around the same size. Only Metalhawk and Fortress Maximus need figures at that size now. Well and Lio Conovy...and Big Convoy...and RiD 2001 Optimus...and Armada Optimus (at least until next year supposedly)...and Energon Optimus...and Animated Wingblade Optimus...and Beast Hunters Optimus...but I mainly meant the first few G1 leaders. Otherwise they could've made them bigger as they are a little on the short side of the scale chart. I'd love a Metalhawk made from PotP Black Shadow/Overlord. Maybe Fortress made from CW Megatron. But just to have them though. All things considered though, they should've made the outward shoulder movement for Star Saber better. They also could've put in a waist swivel for Victory Leo as it's not actually that difficult to do with that design. I think Hasbro has did something similar before actually but I'm currently drawing a blank as to what it was but I know I've seen it before with at least one or two third party figures. There's no reason why those couldn't have happened as this wasn't limited by a price range. If charging an extra $20 could've gotten those things to be designed in then so be it. NOTHING should've been left out like that from the base figures. There is no budget restrictions for these. Oh and Saber should also have had panels for the forearm gaps and there shouldn't have been any waffling either on Victory Leo's cannons or thighs.  And if it were me, I would've made the Brain of Courage a Titanmaster. 
    • Legacy Crankcase looks more like his G1 Triggercon self thanks to Nonnef Productions.
