To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand brick and mortar.

@  siccoyote : (18 January 2018 - 04:31 AM)

Who sings the first part of the GIJoe The Movie theme song? (Cobra) Sounds so familiar.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Also true.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:40 PM)

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I purposefully waited on them because I knew they'd be perfect "add onto orders to get free shipping" fodder. Already gotten two that way. Technically "free" and I barely had to wait.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 09:21 PM)

That's how I feel about Prime Masters. Getting back into collecting last year taught me to be patient, which grants rewards most of the time.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:18 PM)

I want Starscream so hard after seeing him in person, but since he's the one being left behind by every other collector in my area, I feel like I can wait for a sale.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:09 PM)

I mean: I maybe woulda jumped on starscream if I found a sale or something, but it wasn't a priority.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:08 PM)

I only wanted the dinobots (cause... volcanicus.) but got saddled with three I didn't want due to the bundling. I'd still be waiting to order if I had waited on individual figures.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Ahh.. I just ordered the whole case cause I wanted too. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

Mostly PotP dinobots. Plus some stuff I couldn't opt out of to get those dinobots. And CW warpath... cause he was on sale.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 04:54 PM)

What ya getting?

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 04:38 PM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 01:18 PM)

Buying a pre-built computer you should be okay.. It's just the individual parts that jumped huge in price.

@  Paladin : (17 January 2018 - 01:14 PM)

well all the idiots who invested in "bitcoin" will be selling theirs en masse to make ends meet so you might be able to find something cheap if you watch auctions.

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 12:59 PM)

Nintendo also announced Dark Souls for the Switch, so those people should shut up.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:51 AM)

Apparently people are freaking out that Nintendo announced something for kids and kids at heart. And people are absolutely freaking out about it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 January 2018 - 10:23 AM)

...what?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:16 AM)

Why is something for kids and "kids at heart" so bad? :(

I vote kidnap Reggie.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 January 2018 - 07:20 PM)

Just post it on the net.. Or maybe kidnapp Reggie and make them do a Nintendo Direct about it. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2018 - 06:50 PM)

I love RotF Mixmaster, if that means anything.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 January 2018 - 12:42 PM)

Ehh.. when they get to complicated.. it gets annoying. PotP Optimus is decent. Rodimus pushes it just a little.

@  Locoman : (16 January 2018 - 12:32 PM)

Part of the appeal of Transformers for me has always been the mechanical puzzle angle, so I really enjoyed the ROTF/TF2010 line when that angle hit its zenith.

@  Locoman : (16 January 2018 - 12:31 PM)

I'm probably one of the few people who really enjoys complicated, fiddly transformations.

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2018 - 12:14 PM)

Some were decent, but many suffered from that "collector mentality" where it just LOOKED good in both modes...but the engineering was complex merely for the sake of it.

@  Shrug : (16 January 2018 - 10:30 AM)

Huh. That's dissapointing. I had completely missed the Alternators and had just always assumed they were good based on how they looked in photos.

@  Pennpenn : (16 January 2018 - 03:34 AM)

I liked the Alternator Tracks mold. I think everyone agrees the Grimjack mold was just kinda shit even if you didn't care about it being Grimlock as a car.

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 January 2018 - 09:16 PM)

My local dept. store Shopko always seemed to get a few late run gems, like Blast Attack Optimus Primal and hard to find collection 2 Revenge of the Sith toys.

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 January 2018 - 09:15 PM)

Still wish I had snagged that extra Swerve I saw on clearance at Shopko, though

@  RichardT1977 : (15 January 2018 - 08:50 PM)

Smokescreen was the only Alternator I ever got.

@  Telly : (15 January 2018 - 07:24 PM)

i sold all my alternators last year

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 January 2018 - 05:27 PM)

Hound isn't bad, and, uh........

@  Paladin : (15 January 2018 - 05:23 PM)

there's only like 3 Alternator molds at most that still hold up...

I noticed that myself. The colors look different from the photography, but that kind of stuff is always dicey from photos. In terms of actual color layouts/paint ops, I can't find any differences.

Voyager Hound deco variant?


I got the version with the crosses from HTS a couple of months ago. Picked up the crossless one this week and was surprised to find that not only were the box photos different, but the tooling of the elbows* and a significant amount of the engineering of the ankles are different, too. Also, the holes where the big guns attach to the turret mount on the original are too tight and crack, while the later ones fit fine. Lots of last-minute mold refinements happened, apparently.

* In fact, the left and right elbows on my cross-having one are different from each other (one having an engineering defect where some reinforced plastic keeps the parts from lining up right in altmode), and the second Hound doesn't match either one.

Hmm.  I got my Hound from HTS the first night they were available and do not have the Red Cross version.  I wonder how a few got slipped out after the fact.

Infernocus makes the point that Abominus would have been better with a Commander as the torso. I know the one here is bigger than a Commander but point made.

On the other hand, the weathering is like the awful foil stickers. Given Kenner/Hasbro pioneered weathered painting on toys, it's sad to see the ugly attempt here. You can see pixelation!

I think something got messed up on that one, like someone sent a tampograph file that was low resolution or something.  It's very odd.

What's the TC stand for? I know the Premier Edition TLK toys had "TLK" in front of the numbers but I have no clue if the other toys had it different.

Google doesn't seem to know of any TC-01 through TC-08 Transformers. I had assumed it was a Turbo Changer number, but it looks like the entire TLK line used TLK-xx numbers, not just the Premier Editions.

Amazon's gotten in more of the pre-Cogman waves and their prices have just about all dropped down to $18-20 with exception of Bumblebee and Sqweeks, who are sitting at $25-30 depending on when you look.  I grabbed a Steelbane for $13 on Saturday afternoon, which was pleasant.

TRU Cybertron is currently reduced to £112.48 in the UK. Plus if you use the following code online or in store through tomorrow you'll get a further £10 off and qualify for the £10 gift card.

Also, Tesco are currently doing 3 for 2 on all toys. A new standee has emerged at the same time with some more recent TLK toys. Grabbed Legion Megatron and Dragonstorm, getting Optimus for free.

Holy bejeezus, Steelbane may be one of the worst movie figures ever.  Nothing holds together worth a damn on this rubbery bastard and the dragon mode looks even more nonsensical in person than in pictures.

I found one on a road trip to the middle of nowhere. I returned it to a different Walmart the next day. I feel like I would have liked him if the tolerances were even halfway close, but I'm not paying double digits for something I'd have to apply floor polish to every single joint or peg.

Cogman is wave 3 right?  What's wave 2?

 

I've only seen the Voyagers past wave 1 any where (just once for Hound and Nitro Zeus, never a Scorn or whatever might ship with Hound).

Ive seen Hound twice, once in Maine, once here in Ct. Ive seen Nitro and Scorn just one time recently here at te Target in Westfarms. Ive only ever seen Wave 2 Deluxes at Hascon the first day.

-ZacWilliam, I was at that Walmart Monday and sadly they just had the same Wave 1 Movie and early Titanmaster toys theyve had for months and months and months.

Well, depending on how you view "all by himself". He isn't the only figure included in a wave 4 case (i.e. it's not a solid case consisting of eight Cogmans and nothing else), but he's the only new figure in his wave, i.e. all the other figures in a wave 4 case have already been available as part of a previous wave.
