Given how TM Megs suffers from GPS, I'm sure many people would jump at a reissue.

Out of all the hypothetical Beast Wars things, the one I'd like is a leader class Transmetal Megatron

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:18 PM)

They'd make a superb duo. If TT drew the line under BW MPs after those two, I'd be perfectly content.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:15 PM)

I personally hope we get an MP BW Megs, especially if he has a rubber ducky he can hold, yeeess.

It certainly has, man. If it wasn't for BW I probably wouldn't be here.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 10:15 PM)

Yeah, I threw a link in the Beast Wars Birthday thread. I'm keen to hear as many thoughts on it as possible. The last month has proven just how dear to the hearts of fans BW is.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 10:04 PM)

I looked at it a few days ago, actually, I saw you post it somewhere here on the forums.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:43 PM)

No, they're certainly after their own ends. Cheers for taking a look at it, Smokey. I appreciate it.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:36 PM)

Well, at least you twisted things around so the Tripredacus council aren't minions of Unicron.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:30 PM)

With Primus and Unicron, it was my aim for it to double as a celebration of the 30th anniversary of TF:TM.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:27 PM)

It's... Better than Dawn of the Predacus, at least. I could do without the whole Primus v. Unicron thing, that's been done to death.

something about street dates I think...

@  Pennpenn : (30 April 2016 - 10:25 AM)

Any particular reason it's not available in some of the ones I see more often like BBTS and TFSource and so on?

@summer, I was wondering why it looks like an ordinary TF group instead of being about TFWiki.

@  zephyrX9 : (30 April 2016 - 12:18 AM)

ok so either ages three and up sold out of victorion or their system is confusing so i guess im getting computron instead. rip my dream of ladybots everywhere

@  Summer : (29 April 2016 - 02:07 PM)

The TFWiki Facebook group has long since been abandoned by the actual TFWiki moderators, and there's little to no affiliation with the actual site.

Just to let everyone know, I went to pay for FansProject Stormbomb/Bombshell and I saw that the last wave of 2011 Generations was just put up for preorder at BigBadToyStore.

It's $40 for both, if anyone is interested. Given how fast preorders tend to go, I figured I'd give everyone the heads up.

Probably worth it just to save the hassle and waiting and possibly having to pay $40 for ONE later on.

Went ahead and jumped on it here as well, it's hard telling if finding these later is going to be an issue or not. $20 each isn't bad at all.

As of checking just now, there are 91 preorders for the set of 2 available. The trick is to add them into your cart, put in some high number (I did 99), then see how many it will actually let you keep to potentially buy once you update the cart. So I doubt it will be sold out in the morning, but you don't have to pay until they're actually available anyway. They charge your credit card once the toys come into stock. icon-hotrod.gif

Kup's EVERYWHERE here now in Walmart, Target, and TRU. Frankly all the Generations figures that once were impossible to get even online. That's why I'm not worrying anymore.

Just labeled by Hasbro as the last wave of 2011, not the last wave of Generations, period, so I expect the line will continue next year most likely. Heck, considering it survived alongside the DoTM stuff, and Warpath, Thundercracker, Wheeljack, etc. are getting more common...

Glad we did not have a repeat of Universe and '09, thank goodness. If they had found a way to put the G1 guys in RtS into Generations, they probably would have been easier to find.

91 at 10:27 (Jeremy's post) to 41 at 12:33. Half of the preorders placed in two hours.

As for the name, I just put 'Junkion' because that's what BBTS was calling Junkheap in the listing.

It's pretty sad how things have gotten in regard to buying things online. There's no time to think about making a purchase, to wait until payday, etc... You almost have to buy entirely on impulse. Half of the time, BBTS and HasbroToyShop sell out of the more desired items within a few hours. Amazon's Unicron was sold out in an hour and a half (though it was restocked a few times over the course of a few days).

I was kicking myself a little for jumping on the preorder for Warpath, after I saw them start showing up at every Target I went to and it was too late to cancel my order. At least he's one of my favorite new figures in awhile, has that great feel to him of easy transformation and playable robot mode that the original Classics nailed, so I do feel like I got my money's worth.

At 2 of each per case I'm not really that worried about finding them. I still preordered one set just in case, but I'm hoping to find them at WalMart before BBTS gets them. It's been working out that way lately with GI Joe and Marvel Universe. Then I can cancel the preorder to let someone else have them.

Yep, sold out already. I guess 91 sounded like a lot, but I don't know the scale they're working with. Again, it's a preorder though. It's not really an impulse buy in this situation because your card isn't going to be charged until November anyway.

Since I have a pile of loot coming every month or two anyway, I figure $20 each plus whatever small amount that adds to my shipping is worth it. I'd be paying $12 or more each after tax, plus having to hunt around, wait, and worry about maybe not finding them at retail anyway. Sky Shadow especially is definitely important enough to me to have a slightly more expensive guarantee of getting him. Yeah, there's the possibility of finding them cheaper, but we're not talking about actual expensive numbers here.
