  1. Oh goodie goodie its a walmart exclusive. I guess "Ultimate Giftset" is what walmart is going to call their holiday giftset from now on, after all last years giftset was called the same thing, you know the one with cyberverse Green Powerglide, dark optimus, bb, sideswipe, and crowbar.

     

    If they can manage to pull the 30$ pricepoint last years set was then count me in for 2. XD

     

    The thing i love about Walmart TF store exclusives. is they more than often go on sale & get clearanced.

     

    Its usually because of bad timing. My walmart did not get the giftset until a week or two before christmas. :S

     

     

    Well I will be buying it on sight, I'm digging the Jazz, soso on Optimus and don't care about the legends

     

    With a few minor paint apps you could have a rather nice scourge. ;)

  2. Oh goodie goodie its a walmart exclusive again.

     

    If no one remembers, hasbro did a series of "ultimate giftsets" last year for walmart. If I remember correctly there was a marvel one, beyblade one, star wars one, and the transformers one. All of them was set at a 30$ pricepoint with the idea they was a all around good selection of toys from a toyline and would be a easy way for uninformed relatives to get a kid something they would like for a reasonable amount of cash. I guess the concept was somewhat a success and they have decided to do it again this year.

     

    As far as the off pairing of size classes, my only guess is that hasbro figures last years set would had been more popular if relatives thought there was more "value" to the set by including two big figures and two smaller figures instead of last years mix of 2 cyberverse commanders and 3 cyberverse legion figures.

  3. daaaaaaaamn, my only guess is that the guy had a chip on his shoulder to begin with. Like, I don't think he wanted the toy, but wanted to harass some "nerd" about buying toys. Little did he know playground bullying does not work in the real world.

     

    If he did want the toy and was willing to get physically violent over it...that's some hardcore insanity at work. I feel sorry for any small children that gets in his way.

     

     

     

    The closest thing I have had to this happen was in a target about the time HA jazz first came out. There is this certain fellow that frequents the stores that I am fairly certain is a scalper, he cleaned out TRU of all the Animated Arcee's, and was in target buying several HA jazz's "this was actually just after the cigarette fiasco, and was probably stocking up for a recall". Anyways I was irritated at first, cause it appeared he had cleaned the shelves, but I got even, because on the next aisle was a HA skids marked down to $10. He saw the clearance sticker and started to say something, puffed up, huffed, and headed towards the front. XD

     

    Whats funny is that later I stumbled upon a display packed with jazz's. So I ended up getting the better deal :D.

  4. So... I have decided to get off my butt and make a roadbuster for my collection. But I am a bit confused on what I should use as the figures base...

     

    Should I go the general route and use the Calloway conversion kit with the Crossover captain america/ironman mold.

     

    Or should I use the new Prime bulkhead figure?

  5. 1-Hasbro/Takara want these 3rd party companies to pay them a $100,000 liscense fee like CHMS corps does.

     

    I don't think they paid Hasbro a dime. If they had acquired the rights then KOToys would still be alive and kicking.

     

    But yeah reading between the lines, it does not hurt Hasbro, especially if its a long retired mold. But they still dont like it because there is always the possibility they might do something like it later on, ultra mammoth is a good example.

  6. Here is some more pictures showing the figure partially assembled. The main highlights is that they show that the guns have a light up LED gimmick, they show ginrai himself, and they show how classics prime fits into the body. While not shown Xovergen commented and has said that the light piping in the head will also light up via LED.

    The rest are here...

  7. PlanetIacon and ToyWorld have put up new pictures of Hegemon that are apparently of the production run figure.

     

     

    As you can see the figure appears to be sporting a black cap on the gun tip, my only assumption is that it will be Orange on import figures. Will it be removable and non-essential for the silencer? Only time will tell...

  8. Just shot Daniel a email with some pics. I sent the pics of the warped shovel and then another of the figure with the part I need circled. :D

     

    ... I forgot to include the order number though. :S

     

    Hopefully Daniel will recognize me since I worked with him to place the order. XD

     

    Also... I had a older Brave figure break like that on one of the swivel joints. i mean sure you can glue it back together, but it looks weird. :(

    Im glad Daniel is sending you a replacement! :D

     

    Daniel will probably use the same figure for parts for both of us. :tflaugh

  9. Ok guys, I broke down and built them. XD

     

    I actually like them alot, like they hardly feel like model kits at all. Whats probably the best thing about them is that their joints are all ratcheted, so when you move their arms and legs you get a nice solid clicky feeling.

  10. So I recently bought the rest of Hercules from RobotKingdom, but the shovel on "neckbreaker" looks like he rammed into a steel beam or something as it has this bent up part on the inner part of his left foot.

     

    http://campl.us/jDyR

     

    How exactly does robotkingdom handle things like this? Like will they want me to return the entire figure or would they do like bbts and simply ship out the affected part?

     

     

    The look of it does not bother me entirely, as he could had got it by ramming into autobot scum ;)... its just that the stupid shovel has issues enough holding together without one side being bent up and completely unable to peg together. :(

  11. go for it.

     

    So you spent $600 at Robot Kingdom?!? What did you get and how much was the shipping on that?!

     

    I ended up getting the last 4 parts of hercules I needed, the 4 infinity warfare sets, United G2 Prime, and 2010 Predaking. Which ended up being like $604 XD

     

    The shipping was like... 89ish I think.

     

    Sad thing is, I added it all up and I still ended up saving like $80 AFTER shipping with RK when compared to BBTS before shipping. Whats even sadder is that the shipping times were about the same. :S

     

     

    But yeah I was just gonna get the hercules parts and the infinity warfare sets... But going off what the shadow microns are going for, I was better off to just go ahead and get Laser Prime and Predaking. Because I wanted to get both anyways later on, but this way I ended up getting like 200$ of product for free by just getting them now.

     

    On the plus side, since I used bill me later, I got another 10$ off and have 6 months to pay it off without any interest. :D

  12. So by a freak chance of luck, I have managed to get a hold of a full set of shadow microns thanks to Robotkingdoms promotion. Should I build them or put them away as is as a "investment"? I'm kinda curious what shadow Bulo looks like with Hercules. XD

  13. its not a retool, its an add on kit so that NOT HiQ will be able to attach to Classics/Henkei Prime.

     

    I'm not going to bother with Xovergen, just because of the complaints that came out about their pathetic attempt at Grand Patriot Commander.

     

    I'm hoping Fansproject steps up and makes the Powermaster Armor

     

    I am talking about the grey prototype setting next to henkei prime. The entire front end of the truck has been retooled to have the spring loaded powermaster slot. They also retooled the door wings some, so I am thinking they may sit more flush in robot mode.
