  1. What sucks is how totally random the odds are of getting some of these. Two days ago I looked at both Target and two different Walmarts and didn't see anything new, but then I had stopped in a Rite-Aid and there they had a RtS Turbo Tracks with some movie 1 RGR figures, lol. What the freak is up with that?! Plus it was marked up by like $5!! So I got my Tracks for almost the price of a Voyager-- ($17.99) BOOO!!!! BTW (A little off topic) Has anyone heard any rumors about the identities of FPs new WB2 or Crossfire3? Personally, I think the WB2 is Broadside and the Crossfire3 is a set for Energon Constructicons, Also I think that the CA6&7 may be repaints of that set.
  2. The colors aren't THAT bad, but they definitely aren't the best. But then again that seemed to be the theme for the entire G2 line!! I personally like this figure. HOWEVER, it would have been 100x better if it had been released as a voyager. The mold feels very loose and unstable, which would've been easier to fix with more mass. Oh well. I was very excited when I first saw pics of this and was pretty disappointed to find out that it was a deluxe. Side-by-side Generations Blurr is bigger than he is!! Some argue that we should break away from the tradition of having the leaders in larger forms but with an alt mode of a semi-truck vs a sports car I would expect the robot mode to be bigger!!
  3. I think it depends.... depends if the hasbro head sculpt sucks and that you can actually replace it with that 3rd party head, even though it was meant for Animated. Maybe we haven't seen a prototype molding for Arcee because there isn't one. Maybe it is just a Bayverse repaint. This is one that I've really been following because I really don't want to drop over $100 on an decent Arcee if Hasbro is going to produce one. BUT, if it is just a Bayverse repaint I'll just have to bite the bullet.
  4. In AL, I've come across the RtS Optimus Prime, RtS Bumblebee,RtS Rodimus vs Cyclonus as well as the PCC Grimstone with the Dinobots.:) no Constructicons yet tho. Also haven't seen any of the other RtS. LOL you never know when or why WM, Tgt, or TRU will update their shelves. Right now I'm still debating picking up the repaints that are on currently on the shelves: Ani Ironhide, Gen Skullgrin, Gen Cliffjumper, HFTD Banzaitron, HFTD Battle Blades Optimus, HTFD The Fallen, PCC Crankcase, PCC Darkstream, PCC Stakeout, PCC Windburn, and the RtS BB and Rod vs Cyc. These redecos are K-I-L-L-I-N-G me, lol. Needless to say I'm not in any real hurry to buy these.
  5. Speaking of Arcee, Has anyone heard anything about an updated version? *not a motorcycle I hope. I've been debating on buying the 3rd party version but it is so freaking expensive that I'm trying to hold out to see if Hasbro is gonna be releasing their own soon. When I read the post on Warpath it was said we'd possibly see Arcee too. http://TFormers.com/...14939/news.html I was noticing that the listing has them in the 'Generations' category which seems kind of odd to me because I thought the 'Reveal the Shield' category was the latest name for that group IE Classics>Universe>Generations>Reveal. Not that it is super important, but I've already picked up some of the Reveal the Shield series and notice from the catalog that only a couple were Bayverse repaints. Is the Reveal just a gimmick using the thermo-stickers to sell repaints? On another note, reselling the BB with racing stripes is ghey. Couldn't they have at least given him a weapon this go-around? Also I agree that the strick deluxe format is a crappy move. The G2 Optimus is not a bad figure, but the transformations would have been much nicer on a smaller voyager version. I finally got my hands on the Gen Blurr and he is bigger than G2 Prime!! I know it's a little off topic but I had to get my rant in, lol.

  7. Has anyone looked a the FP page lately? They gave a broad upcoming announcement and I was wondering if anyone was able to get any more details. IE Warbot 02 or the Crossfire 3. Possible Broadside and Constructicon set?
  8. FP is great but they aren't perfect. My Protector came with one of the spacers fixed in upside-down so the trailer mode is useless. I've heard that other people had this same problem. Fortunately I shop at BBTS and they were very understanding and quick to ship a replacement. RobotKingdom, on the other hand, I don't do unless they have an exclusive that I really want.
  9. Wow. I hope the toy-line isn't any indicator of the quality of the movie. Who allowed those mech-tech weapons to go into production?!? Almost every one I've seen so far is terrible. It's almost as if they are poking fun at the entire TF series by making them look as stupid as possible.
  10. There were a few made as an extremely limited release. I saw pics of Proto and final version but couldnt remember why it was never released to the public.
  11. Yeah I've never been let down by FP. Does anyone see any design similarities in these and the Nova Prime? Does anyone know why we can't get a re-release of the Nova Prime?
  12. Booooo A little off topic but I am having to send my FP Rodimus kit back due to a misplaced tab in the front of trailer mode. That means at least another two week wait... Has anyone else had this problem?
  13. LOL I love it when you talk dirty! But seriously, I'd rather see less of the junky activators, StarWars Crossovers, Marvel Crossovers, PVC statues, semi-transforming vehicles, RPMs, and legends, in exchange for more independent molds of various characters (excluding the main characters that they've run into the ground with numerous re-molds and tweaks *cough Bumblebee).
  14. I guess Hasbro has finally caught on to the idea that adding a new head helps to ease the fact that the consumer is buying the same product twice or more. Not sure if this is a good thing yet. Does the fact that they are throwing in a new head mold with their repaints justify MORE repaints?? If so- keep the head and do less repaints.
  15. I've got to say that the Giant-Mech-Weapons really takes away from the toyline. MAYBE it would be acceptable if they were better integrated into the alt mode but they are just as much of an eyesore there as well. Also wondering how they are going to account for those "big-guns" in the movie. 'Robots in Disguise'- my arse, with a Semi driving down the interstate with a giant cannon in place of a trailer -OR- an SUV with a door mounted giant cannon, lol. Part of the beauty of the toys post G2 was their ability to conceal their weapons in alt mode.
