We sure got high on these toys without knowing what 90% of their decos will look like.

Cool Mini-Cons, though.

I wish I could tell if Bulkhead was a new mold or the same as the FE version, because then I could cancel him on HLJ and get one with extra minicon.

Anyone else notice most of them turn into what are essentially each character's weapon from the show? Bulkhead's blaster, Cliffjumper's 'horns', Ratchet's sword, Arcee's tonfa blade, Bumblebee's pulse-gun, and Megatron's cannon?


If anything, that's what's going to make me re-buy some of these characters.

Giving Bulkhead a Targetmaster buddy, I can take or leave. Giving him an approximation of his blaster from the show, and I want the hell out of it.
Check out my Botcon Film Trilogy...thing...sort of.

Microns... they had to include Microns.


Now I don't know what to do. I'm budgeted for the U.S line but now want the Japan one, AAAUUUGGGHHHH!!!!!


Randy, how is shipping prices for HLJ? With their sale going on I'm wondering if I'd save enough $$$ buying from them over buying from BBTS.

In their promo shots they used the show's CGI models for the molds they don't have photos of (Arcee, Ratchet and Bulkhead), Blacked out the new voyagers(Starscream and Optimus), and used toys for the ones Hasbro has released images of or is an FE toy(Soundwave, Cliffjumper, Bumblebee, Terracon Cliff and That is deluxe Megatron as HLJ has him at deluxe price). Just anoter piece of evidence saying Bulkhead is getting a new Voyager toy.

Shipping is expensive, but as long as my orders have 2 to 3 or more figures in them I always end up saving money over ordering with BBTS or TFSource. What extra I pay in shipping is more than made up for on what I save on the figures (and I get the expensive EMS shipping in almost every instance).

Though lately HLJ hasn't been able to fill my orders (with the EZ Chronicles Wave 2 and the latest United figures). Though I think those were special cases as they were more limited (despite ordering the first or second day they went up for order). I think you'd be fine with a mass release line like this one.

GAH, I don't want to buy most of those Prime figures. I definetly don't want to import them. But I'd love to have all those Minicons. Guess I have to just cross my fingers for a domestic release...

ZacWilliam, wants Starscream to be sold with a better (read more G1) Laserbeak to fit where the regular one goes.

Yes I meant Soundwave. Heh. I'm gonna blame Autocorrect. But that was probably all me.


Zac, would take a Ravage too.

I will be getting these, but not yet. I want to see better pictures, and want to know what the deal with Wheeljack is. If TT isn't releasing Deluxe Wheeljack for some reason, that's fine, I'll pick up the US release, but I want to know more and put in one big order rather then a few small orders. Saves shipping, ya know?

ANY pictures, in some cases.

I want Bulkhead's micron more than anyone else's, but how'm I supposed to pull that trigger on an unseen mold knowing how RID Optimus and Bumblebee turned out?

Nah. Like BBTS, they're a big enough store that they can afford to defer payment until the product is in stock.
