  1. Found this guy at Target! They also had wave 1 deluxe, but they were $18.29? :wat
  2. YouTuber Mitch Santona got all six in one sitting it seems, but then again maybe he has connections?
  3. I seriously LOL'd when you use Sideswipe as a "boost" XD
  4. I guess that depends on which market sector you're looking at right? If you are a strict Hasbro / Takara Tomy collector, and you don't like anything other than G1 inspired products, yeah I can see that. With the recent announcement of those Hero Factory wanna be TF toys, that might have added to your depression. However, if you have cash to swing, 3rd Party companies are bringing great G1 designs non-stop. If I had the cash, I would jump on Function X: Code (ala Chromedome) in a heartbeat. Heck there are 2 companies releasing G1 Predakings.
  5. :agree I agree, and people wonder why fans would pay up the wazoo for 3rd Party figures instead; it's because of shenanigans like this that Hasbro is pulling. What a clear and blatant rip off of the Hero Factory line.
  6. My take on this is for Hasbro / Takara Tomy to hire these companies that has been doing so great in redesigning / re imagining from the source material in producing new toys. I mean, Apple hired the guy who wrote the iPhone "Jail-Break"ing app right? Also, in Japan, custom figure makers (like Jizai Toys) are afforded 1-day licenses to sell figure they created themselves at events like Wonderfest. Maybe that could be case for the US event / Online?
  7. I don't usually go out of my way to state my opinion in length, but this is the one character from G1 that I am attached to the most, so I will exercise my "freedom" to judge it harshly. First off, I don't think that it is a that bad of a figure. I like how the shoulder duel cannons and his rifle looks. The head sculpt is also very well done imo, but I think think the "good points" ends there... If it was purely an update / upgrade design for Optimus Prime with no previous source material (for example like the Protector Armor for Classics Rodimus), this would be a pretty good add on. However, that is not the case since this is supposed to emulate Power Master Prime / Ginrai (or Jinrai), and there are just too many design cues that is out of place: 1) The over figure is just too tall and lanky. PM Prime is suppose to be more stocky because he doesn't have his "boots" for added height yet. 2) PM Prime did not have those blue forearm armors, they came from the Apex Armor Power Up. 3) Where did those City Commander Shoulder Missile Launcher wanna-be came from? Original figure did not have any weapon that resembles them at all. 4) The head / arms / feet attach to the body via visible joints that are simply too long. It truly looks like someone just stick limbs to a torso, and the whole figure does not looks like a cohesive body. The extra piece that they use to incorporate the original Ginrai body did hide the peg a bit, but only improved it slightly. 5) Trailer mode reminds me more of Armada's Overload than PM Prime. It doesn't even look like a cargo trailer, ala the original armor trailer that looked like G1 Prime's Trailer. Sigh, this could have been so great, but at this stage it is very disappointing. I want to see their God Bomber with this body now to see if it solves any of these issues I have with this.

    Don't know if this will make sense for you guys, but for those who know the "Brave" series, doesn't BH Optimus feel like he would be something that came out of those designs? Also the middle section of his jet back leads me to believe that Optimus is suppose to combine with something. I dunno what, but something.
  9. Look it's another breakdown that's being released in the US! Gasp~

    I have been seeing the newest wave everywhere too, so I'm glad I waited to get my vechicon (got a 2nd one when Target had deluxe at $11.99 one week.) The funny thing is I can't seem to find an Arachnid that supposedly comes with that wave. (Not that I need one)
  11. Nice, very happy for you. Personally, I think I'll save up for a Takara version since that metallic paint is soooooo nice.

    Beast Hunters

    I'm hoping someone in China would bootleg the legion Airachnid and upscale it to deluxe size. haha
  13. Are you only looking to find them on shelf, or are you willing to import?
  14. Sorry to be a pain, but has anyone been following their tracking? For mine, it was 'shipped' on Monday, but no scan since label is created?
  15. Good news for those who pre-ordered via TRU, just got an email that mine shipped and I can expect it this week.

    Rid Vehicon

    I don't personally need one, but after I got mine at the target closest to me, I have not found another one in my city. Hasbro why is your distribution so bad?
  17. Sigh, called yesterday and Customer Service told me that mine is back-ordered. Doesn't Pre-order usually means that your order is fulfilled first before regular release? Opportunity to exercise my patience I guess.
  18. For those of you who were able put in a pre-order with Toys R Us online for the MP Optimus, has anyone got it in the mail?

    Seeking Hegemon

    I would look on eBay as well. If you get lucky you can find a couple sellers selling them for $100 shipped.
  20. For some reason that makes me think the series will be like "Pokemon, Transformers Edition" Also... Why u no make Predaking a combiner? :P
  21. I know there is a 3rd Party Company (iirc Headrobots) that is making a whirl upgrade kit for that mold in the original Tomahawk color. Also FoC Vortex is being remold into Whirl in a future release, so there are other options than using Shockwave's head. (Which is octagon in shape in stead of square like whirl)
