  1. They did that for years. Hasbro opted to start shipping them in robot mode when they were seeing a better reaction to the figures in bot mode, than when in the alternate modes.
  2. Nice! They're fun little kits. I think I tried cleaning out BBTS when they had them on a clearance sale. :tflaugh (just a warning, though. some sockets don't like to keep ahold of the balljoints. I built a little mini-custom, and it's limbs kept popping out of the sockets. XD )
  3. Yay! Welcome to the geneblock addiction! :thumb Who's carrying them, these days?

    I use Intermetro shelving components for my collection: http://www.containerstore.com/shop/shelvingSale/interMetroreg/bestSellingSolutions The only thing is I can't seem to get the pipe sleeves to properly grip to get all the shelves to appear level. :( but that's what holds the majority of my collection.
  5. They're in a Display box like the Lego & Mega Bloks packs, though I think it might depend on store. The Target near by has started hanging Lego/Mega Bloks blindpacks on pegs.
  6. Yesterday's haul turned out to be a good one! Target: Cyberverse Commander: Ultra Magnus Dreadwind Wal-Mart: Kreon Micro-Change: Scorponok Crankstart Sunstorm Waspinator Cyberverse Legion: Flamewar Hyperspeed Wheeljack Cyberverse Commander: Nightwatch Optimus Prime Lego Hero Factory: XT-4 Thornaxx
  7. Here's my BBTS pile o' loot haul. Kabaya Gum Plus Transformers DX Fortress Maximus Series - Box of 5 Transformers Prime Arms Micron - Bag of 10 Pieces AMW01 Arms Micron A AMW02 Arms Micron B AMW03 Arms Micron C AMW04 Arms Micron Shell 2 AMW05 Arms Micron Baro 2 AMW06 Arms Micron Jiro 2
  8. Peaugh tweeted that one of the Targets he frequents got rid of Transformers. To hear this Wal-Mart manager saying it, yikes. Not looking good for Transformers. I'm not sure how I feel about it, off hand. Right now, I'm kind of fine with it. I could stand to give collecting Transformers a break, as I've been getting into a (very lazy) mindset of going through my bins, sorting through the Transformers, and thinning out the collection a bit. It wouldn't really give my wallet much of a break, as I have plenty of other things that I'd still collect, though. :tflaugh
  9. Glad you didn't detail through the Autobot symbol, I've seen some other folks that's done that while detailing, and just makes it look kinda sloppy.
  10. The local Wal-Marts here suck at price matching. There's three Wal-Marts in the area, they won't even price match each other.
  11. or worse...he stepped on one! :argh :eek I love that Kre-o is going more to play theme builds than figure building, too. The only thing is, the more I see of the Micro Change Kreons, the less I'm excited about them. I'm not exactly sure why. I'll still buy them, though! Anywho, as for the price: after Target's little snafu in charging $30 for DOTM Nitro Bee, I'm just relieved they're not that much. (Though, I do hate being old enough to remember when $15 got you a really nice chunky hunk of plastic Beast Wars figure.)
  12. After a good dentist visit, walked over to Toys R Us and Target. Picked up: @ Toys R Us: Wiifit cover (clearanced out at $2.) Adventure Time B-MO figure (Not sure why. I've only seen like two episodes of Adventure Time, but the anim gifs on Tumblr made me a fan of the character, I guess.) @Target: Transformers Fall of Cybertron Shockwave Lego Ninjago Samurai X Mech Met with a friend, and headed over to Best Buy. Ended up picking up a Logitech G330 headset, since my Rosetta Stone headset's mic went out. Then went over to Burger King and got to play with their new Coca Cola Freestyle machine. Had Coca Cola Orange, Mello-Yello Peach, and Barq's Vanilla! I want a Freestyle machine for my apartment.
  13. Agreed. I had to drive up there from Dallas for work. Not much around. Lawton or OKC? Have family around Lawton, but it's been a few years since I've been up there. Fine to visit for a day*, but I don't think I could get by living there for any length of time. Though, I did managed to pull in a few good hauls, outside of the easy to find releases, from Lawton: Primus w/ Unicron head, MP Starscream, and Legends Wheelie. :tflaugh (*Only due to aforementioned family.)
  14. Here's my haul for the day! Toys R Us: Fall of Cybertron Jazz Kre-o Cycle Chase Kre-o Decepticon Ambush Hero Factory Stringer
  15. It's not worth a serious mention, as they didn't. If they did, it'd be common knowledge by now. :tflaugh As for the Super Shoguns, seems kinda neat, but I wonder what makes these different from the Japanese Vinyl statues released during the 90s?
