  1. At long last I can purchase transformers again. My hats off to Hasbro for finally returning to designing proper TFs. Maybe we'll finally see a Generations Trailbreaker/Hoist mold.Likely mistransformed, I just hope these combiners don't feature that god awful PCC gimmick. Oh yeah, one word.Devestator.
  2. NO. Reboot the series, yes. Please, no more Bay. No more ugly Bayverse figures .Please, just no more. :fire
  3. Too many Primes shelf-warming. Like waves of just Prime or something it would be funny if it were not so terribly sad. :tfsad

    DOTM = Fail

    I have not bought anything from this line, Bayverse kills all interest for me. It must die. "cringes"
  5. Does this fig have hands? I've looked at it in the store and I see no sign of something that resemble hands. Otherwise I would purchase.
  6. I don't mind this character except for the fist placement. Plenty of guns makes for a good fig and the articulation could be a lot worse. Backfire is a problem for me where are his hands? Ultimately I'm just happy they stopped with the bayverse chicken legs.

    Angry Hasbro Rant

    These are troubling times indeed, from since Armada we tf fans in Canada have been educated on receiving the Hashaft(no Armada Skywarp). Since then BBTS has been a go-to source for my wave skipping paranoia purchases. But RTS Grapple and Windcharger were only secured by hard work scouring Walmarts and TRU's. Warpath is in the mail. The coming of Gen and RTS just screamed bad idea(s) right before DOTM I knew they couldn't release them all.No way.Basically I'm just happy that they have been making some great toys and hope they can continue(need frenzy/rumble). Nowadays its get them however you can. It hurts when you frantically buy online only to have them flood Walmart but then again not as much as no fig at all.
  8. I've noticed that pre-orders have mega back-logs. Yours might just be far back in the queue. The pre-orders won't sell out before you receive yours though.
  9. Fans love the idea of any TF toon. This one is just another. I'm not fond of the 5 core+cameo appearances format that is so popular as-of-lates. G1 was able to juggle 20 plus distinct characters weekly. Prime has developed a disposable character approach that is neglecting any connection fans can develop for the peripherals. G.I.JOE as well.
  10. Hasbro may just release it as Ricochet. I shall wait years to see if Classics resurfaces from the flames of the Bayverse. :argh
  11. We're usually the last place to get TFs here in the UK (when we're lucky enough to get them at all!), but Solar Grapple and Voyager Lugnut are piled high at Toys R Us at the mo. I have also seen Perceptor/Jazz/Tracks and the RTS legends inc Megatron. We must be doing well for a change! :tflaugh Alot of Solar Grapple in UK!?May have to pull a favor from my Brit bud.I buy for him here and send over there..... Grapple,Windcharger, Jazz,Tracks,Lugnut, Perceptor, Wreck-Gar,.For some reason they have showed up in Toronto albeit sporadically. BBTS is how I got Kup,Scourge,Thundercracker,Wheeljack and has confirmed shipment of my Warpath but it's been hell getting these figs(Gen/RtS). Hasbro must develop a new Classics series because it works.(Magnus Voyager(Animated update), Arcee/Elita-1( also Animated update),Blitzwing Voyager,Skywarp,Trailbreaker/Hoist plus those implied repaints). DoTM and Prime preempting a return to Generations would be a mistake for Hasbro, it generates debate ,profit and the bulk of positive interest in the Brand. DoTM and Prime's existence is necessary to take advantage of exposure the movie and series can generate. But I think the Bayverse sucks(apart from some off-screen characters) and Prime is for my kids. They are tolerable so long as there is a return to Classics, otherwise I quit. :tfevil
  12. BBTS shipped mine today. :yay
  13. Christmas usually cleanses the line and makes room for newer stuff. In 2010 that did not happen. It also doesn't help that Gen/RTS are basically the same line yet being shipped as different ones. Retailers know noting about toys its just stock to them so they will butcher this distribution. I don't get the Hub, new toons without toys? Unavailable to most kids? Suicide is what that is. Hasbro seems to have massively mismanaged their best series, GIJOE + Transformers managed properly even with the Bayverse is doable and more importantly viable. I hope Hasbro doesn't fold but learn I seriously shouldn't have had to have made the majority of my TF purchases online nor should i have had to make multiple trips to remote locations to complete the list. :argh
  14. This must be the only Zellers with product .I've had to check multiple spots to fill what bbts( including 3 Sweeps) is unable to. Certain TRUs are what I call dumps( I used to work for them) Excess product is packed up from numerous locations and shipped to one or two to make room in the majority of stores. Saw one with vast stockpiles of Rotf Ravage redecos, Jetblade and Mudflaps galore etc. This all means that certain remote locales have the freshest of the stock which is how I got certain hard to find classics(still not easy almost didn't get Grapple). Windcharger was a total fluke which I have seen no more of. I'm just waiting for my Warpath on pre-order.
