  1. Reported this on TFW2005 this afternoon and RodimalToyota reported this on Seibertron a bit later with a secondary confirmation. A new Crankcase variant is out there now. Rather than clipped figners, or the unclipped blade finger, the remolded hand kind is now out. The lot number for these is 10851, and unlike previously, the Paramount logo in now on the right hand side of the back of the card. Here's the picture Rodimal took, which is far clearer than the one I was able to capture. http://www.seibertron.com/images/toys/uploads/1307375275_7dee78b4.jpg Edit: Looking at the time stamps on Seibertron, looks like Rodimal posted his alert on this before I got mine up on TFW2005.
  2. Personally, I don't mind a lack of pictures, as stuff will be revealed in time, or be put in the case afterwards. That helps build up anticipation. What I /do/ mind is the fact that this panel for the msot part gave us a whole bunch of nothing. I was hoping of a reveal of a leader Decepticon of some sort, a bit more wave info for the DoTM stuff, something more than stuff we already knew for the most part. And what we got was, IMO, just a bit on the lame side really in regards to that. The TF Prime info is nice, sure. I'd have like to have seen what the stuff looks like. Usually there's alot more revealed during this panel, and this year it just feels extremely underwhelming, or like they didn't care to the degree they did in the past. It's just frustrating for me, anyway. I appreciate what they do, don't get me wrong. I'm just feeling underwhelmed. Maybe it's my fault for getting my hopes up, wishing for some mind blowing stuff being revealed(Like last years Mindwipe toy, Bludgeon, and Leader Starscream.). This, was like a slap form a cold fish, or something, I feel a bit cheated.
  3. You may want to hit Toys R us and Walmart for WP. I've seen alot of reports for WP in those stores and found a WP at my local TRU, and partials of a Warpath case at the local Walmart.
  4. Yeah, I was just about to sink $25 plus shipping for one Wreckgar or Perceptor alone. Glad I held off. Rofl.
  5. Yep. The clipping is hit or miss in regards to quality. Some of the middle fingers get clipped down to just the hand and there's been reports of even the other fingers getting snipped too.
  6. Following a tip from someone on TFW2005, I was able to locate the last wave of the RtS Deluxes at a Marshalls today. There's similar sightings at TJ Maxxes as well with the the deluxes going for 6.99 a pop. I snagged two Wreck Gars, a Perceptor, and a G2 Optimus at the Marshalls in Manallapan, NJ. They also had the last wave of HfTD Scouts which hopefully means they'll get RtS Windcharger eventuall and also had the RtS legends figures.
  7. The middle fingers. Deluxe Crankcase seems to have a running change or something where alot of the middle fingers were clipped. I'll post an example a bit later.
  8. Back on TFW2005 the people there began to keep track of Crankcases and who were clipped, and who weren't. There are lot numbers on the back of cards, all right next to the paramount logo on the back. Here's a list for Crankcase lot numbers and the last kept numbers of which had intact fingers, and how many of those lot numbers were clipped. Special Thanks to Galvatron Rage for keeping a record of this for a few weeks. 03641 - 1 Intact, 0 Cut 03651 - 15 Intact, 0 Cut 10131* - 22 Intact, 0 Cut *This number seems to be the "international" one, with locations like Canada, Australia, Chile and The Netherlands. 10191 - 1 Intact, 0 Cut (Scotland) 10321 - 1 Intact, 0 Cut (United Kingdom) 10531 - 5 Intact, 8 Cut 10561 - 18 Intact, 2 Cut 10601 - 3 Intact, 35 Cut 10801 - 0 Intact, 2 Cut Special thanks to Galvatron Rage of TFW2005 for having kept track of this.
  9. Yep. Here's the numbers from TFW2005 before it became irrelevant since it seemed like a set pattern in regards to the numbers. 03641 - 1 Intact, 0 Cut 03651 - 15 Intact, 0 Cut 10131* - 22 Intact, 0 Cut *This number seems to be the "international" one, with locations like Canada, Australia, Chile and The Netherlands. 10191 - 1 Intact, 0 Cut (Scotland) 10321 - 1 Intact, 0 Cut (United Kingdom) 10531 - 5 Intact, 8 Cut 10561 - 18 Intact, 2 Cut 10601 - 3 Intact, 35 Cut 10801 - 0 Intact, 2 Cut Special thanks to Galvatron Rage of TFW2005 for having kept track of this.
  10. There's a big thing with Crankcase's having clipped fingers in the US. There are lot numbers without them. In particular Crankcase's with a lot number of 03651 will not have clipped fingers, where as all 10601's have clipped fingers. I've confirmed this myself.
  11. Must be some QC issues on Icepicks or you got a bad one. Or I got immensely lucky. Mine doesn't have any of those joint issues in the least. O_o;
  12. ..A one and a half? For Ice Pick? And you gave Backfire a 4? These scores seem like they should be reversed. I love this figure and I was immensely disaapointed by Backfire. They both have good Alt modes. They both have decent figures(Though Sgt. Chaos. Really? Can we try harder with names Hasbro.). However, where Ice Pick blows Backfire out of the water completely is posability. I don't care if he can't hold his weapons that well. He has actual /ARMS/ Those are vital components to anyone. He has elbows as well. Elbows the /DO NOT/ suck like Backfire's. Let's not bring up probably the greatest sacriledge of all, at least IMO, which is Backfire's hands being molded /BACKWARDS/. It's like the worst tease ever. "We know he could have elbows and hands. But... Well, they're gonna face the wrong way and not be useable." I've give icepick a four. Next to Sandstorm, he's easily the best of the first wave of the HA figures.
