That whole flat-rate shipping thing makes the math easy.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 02:23 PM)

4 bucks

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 September 2017 - 02:15 PM)

Hmm. How much is shipping from BBTS?

@  NightViper : (20 September 2017 - 02:09 PM)

Set of the four is still $22 at BBTS

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 September 2017 - 02:00 PM)

Ramhorn is currently available from a third party seller via Amazon for $27.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 11:47 AM)

Anybody have the TR PM OP trading card they don't want? I lost mine! Will pay you for it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (20 September 2017 - 11:35 AM)

If you don't need her I'll take her off ya.

@  BlackMax : (20 September 2017 - 10:04 AM)

When I get that power-batteryOptimus I swear I will carry it everywhere. It'll be like having a useful tool AND being six years old again all at once.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 09:58 AM)

I guess he's gone now. Oh well.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 09:56 AM)

I saw Ramhorn all over ebay for $16 a week ago or so.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 09:02 AM)

Just ordered Arcee.  I don't need her.  But she's pink.  And a robot.  A combination I love.

@  Darknova4life : (20 September 2017 - 08:57 AM)

@ Robowang, Where is TR Ramhorn available for $16?

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 07:31 AM)

Besides spotty, this is the first time I've consistently seen reships of older waves months after the next 2/3 waves show up.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 September 2017 - 07:29 AM)

No kidding spotty. Haven't seen of the recent waves, and I desperately want a seaspray for my brother.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 07:05 AM)

Distribution is so spotty these days that I've given in and just started ordering everything. I'm probably going to wind up with a $16 Ramhorn, too.

@  MidnightFox : (19 September 2017 - 08:51 PM)

So they've been out at regular retail hit and miss for awhile.

@  MidnightFox : (19 September 2017 - 08:50 PM)

I picked up Misfire at a Target in Mississippi in mid-August.

@  Shrug : (19 September 2017 - 05:09 PM)

I think so. I checked his post history just now and he mentions buying something in North Carolina

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 September 2017 - 05:04 PM)

A U.S. Walmart?

@  Shrug : (19 September 2017 - 04:41 PM)

Saw someone found Misfire's wave at Walmart on Reddit. First normal retail sighting I've heard. I'm more hopeful now.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 September 2017 - 04:04 PM)

I'm praying I will be able to find Misfire and Slugslinger at brick and mortar somehow.

@  Xellos : (19 September 2017 - 03:22 PM)

Getting the set of 3, myself. Figure I'll keep Hot Rod in package (still my fave character), and give Kup to my nephew to help expand his current fascination with Transformers.

@  Telly : (19 September 2017 - 11:56 AM)

i got slugslinger for $30 from amazon as well. i can imagine thatll be the standard price at most places since theyll jack up the price to cover having all those kup and hot rods sitting in their stores

@  Robowang : (19 September 2017 - 08:16 AM)

Yes, I bought the $30 one on Amazon. I'd rather just pay the $30 than pay $60 and be stuck with an extra Hot Rod and Kup I can't sell.

@  Robowang : (19 September 2017 - 07:34 AM)

Slugslinger, Misfire, and Triggerhappy look amazing together. Best of Titans Return, as far as I'm concerned.

@  Noideaforaname : (18 September 2017 - 11:32 PM)

gads, why is this site so bad at loading at times?

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 September 2017 - 08:29 PM)

Thank you Hasbro for having never reissued the 2011 City Strike Destro figure...already at $32 with a week left.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 September 2017 - 07:47 PM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 September 2017 - 12:47 AM)

@  Shrug : (13 September 2017 - 09:01 PM)

Just sitting above the toy section. Taunting me.

@  Shrug : (13 September 2017 - 09:00 PM)

My local store got a fresh deluxe box of TR Wave 1 and two boxes of deluxe TLK Wave 1. Even though they already had 3 boxes worth of TLK Wave 1

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (13 September 2017 - 07:08 PM)

Almost all the Titans Return is sold out at my nearest Target and Walmart, but I'm traveling this weekend and may try different ones.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 September 2017 - 06:12 PM)

I don't have -any- TR at my walmart.

Someone please explain the secrecy behind these toyfairs. How does showing pictures or describing figures effect anything at all. Maybe Powered Convoy will make a bunch of money leaking info to Snowden.

Marketing. Hasbro will get more attention and publicity from one big release of information than they will from information leaking in dribs and drabs.

It varies by product and line.

For example, consider licensed product such as Star Wars toys. The product may be in support of new works of fiction, in which case the IP holder would prefer that the general public not be aware of matters before such time as the fiction is released. If you'll recall, that was the explanation Hasbro itself gave for why Rey product was so scarce when episode VII came out: their contract with Disney was such that they were allegedly under restriction until after the film was released so as to avoid spoilers.
Lexicon: still up and running!

Remember how many leaks there were for the first movie line? How the first wave or two popped up on eBay way before they were officially revealed? Too bad that killed all the hype for them, making it totally not one of the most successful Transformers lines ever. :p

I think the general case is that the kind of people who would know these things so far in advance would be Hasbro employees, (or people who work with them) who stand to get in trouble if they're discovered as the source for leaks.

The greyscale prototype they showed in July sure made it look like Full-Tilt would be a Headmaster. There was a little TM dude sitting right next to his car on the ramp. It makes no sense for them to leave him out of the full line gimmick.

I suspect Full-tilt was probably designed with a titan master, then altered because Trypticon will most likely be the Titan class toy for the launch of Power of the Primes with whatever the gimmick is.

Power of the Primes won't be launching till December when the first 2018 toys come out. Trypticon will be out as the big 2017 flagship item in midyear.

The matter of the 2018 Titan is an interesting one, though. We've never gotten a brand-new Titan mould two years in a row before, but equally there's not a lot I can think of that they could do with the moulds they already have...

Metrotitan, Brave Maximus, Grand Maximus, Christmas Maximus... I could easily see them reusing a lot of parts to make Scorponok too as there's nothing to say his Scorpion mode has to be any good.

Why haven't Hasbro or Takara done any redecoes of Metroplex or Fortress Maximus thus far? Not even a limited edition contest prize or anything. Is cost that much of a factor?

They must not deem it financially viable to make a redeco.

 

They're probably wary after all the Energon Unicrons and Armada Unicrons in Energon packaging.  And those were $50 figures, not $100+ figures.

Titan Class Metrotitan, Grand Max, etc. fall in the wrong quadrant of the "production cost"/"likelihood anyone's willing to spend $150 on them" scatter plot.
