  1. I found a Dinobots PCC at a discount chain the other day. Too bad one of the drone's connection port covers was reversed so It won't open. I'll have to figure out how to flip it. But the figure looks great.
  2. Picked up Thundercracker and Warpath at the Seattle Southcenter Target yesteday. Interesting.

    ID a transformer?

    Thanks. I figured it out as well just now.

    ID a transformer?

    Where are these "identify pages" that you mention? I bought a knock-off transformer a couple years ago and I'm curious about its origin. In robot mode it looks like Optimus Prime, but the alt mode looks like a rosenbauer fire truck (like sentinel prime in DoTM). The alt mode splits in half. The front part becomes the robot and the back half becomes a battle station which a six-missile cannon very similar to BB's. Any ideas? Thanks.
  5. Mini-cons really add up. Armada and energon occured during my completionist phase.
  6. CRAP. I voted for RID dragon when I meant the BWBM dragon. That thing was awesome in both modes. My close runner-ups are the G2 tank followed by the cybertron jet-car. If the cybertron jet-car was in galvatron's colors, that would be my #1.
  7. Picked up a DOTM powerglide yesterday. Pleasantly surprised about how nice he looks in both robot and alt modes. Definitely worth a pick up if you can find him.
  8. I was talking about the RTS bike wreck-gar. I'm surprised they still had animated figs.
  9. I tried the TJ Maxxes and Marshalls in the greater Seattle area (Tukwila to Lynnwood) over the weekend and no luck on Wreck-Gar. I did find an RTS Optimus and Bumblebee at the Northgate TJ Maxx, and a couple of HA Bumblebees scattered throughout.
  10. Sorry. Maybe I was being a bit negative. They both look nice in robot mode, so that's the way they'll stay on my shelf.
  11. I was at a local fred meyer/kroger store and the entire TFormers area was cleared out with signage for the third movie toys. On a hunch I picked up the metal shelf on the bottom and found the universe optimus prime v. megatron ultimate battle 2-pack jammed in there with a couple halo toys. I scanned the upc, but it wasn't in the register anymore. I guess it must've been stuck down there since 2006 or 2007. They gave it to me for $10. I'm sitting here at my desk making optimus spin around like a top. This has to be the weirdest toy feature I've seen on a transformer. It's like he's being flushed down a toilet. *edit* and after playing with optimus for 5 minutes, i'm thinking i probably should've left it where it was buried. :)
  12. I'm no tf historian, but is this the first transformers line that lacked an Optimus and a Megatron?
  13. Picked up Generations Special Ops Jazz and Turbo Tracks. I was disappointed by both figures. My main complaint is that the legs and feet on both toys are too floppy, making the toys unstable. Tracks' feet are especially bad. He's laying facedown on my desk right now because I got tired of propping him back up. His dimensions are pretty comparable to his g1 toy, but compared to the rest of the Generations line, he looks short and stocky. Jazz's plastic seems pretty cheap and flimsy. The hood-chest of jazz looks almost knock-off tf flimsy and there are three different colored white plastic parts on the figure. The shoulders and neck are a whiter than the chest and doors. The forearms are painted white that doesn't even come close to the rest of the figure. While the speakers are a nice touch, overall this figure was a disappointment. To end on a bright note. Both vehicle modes look great and both figures have pretty good articulation (though the floppy ankles and feet will prevent them keeping that pose on your desk). *edit* Jazz's chest just looks flimsy because the blue headlight plastic and the slightly transluscent white plastic make the plastic look thinner than it really is.
  14. I was in Canadia yesterday and found Recon Ravage on sale for 9.98 CND... so that's like $3 USD.
