just ordered tr trypticon. should have it monday :)

@  OrionPax44 : (20 September 2017 - 04:57 PM)

@Robowang I have one somewhere and I can send it to you. Don't worry about it. Just let me find it

@  Bass X0 : (20 September 2017 - 04:43 PM)

Sometime last week, I purchased Hasbro Windblade online then a day or two later, Takara Windblade was announced for only £4.99 more making me instantly regret buying Hasbro's Windblade. Guess I'll be giving Hasbro Windblade to my nephew for Christmas then.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 02:24 PM)

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)

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.

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

I hope its the Leo Prime head mold but since its new, probably not. I'm fine with that too.

Hey, notice the Neo Predacon insignia on Razorclaw's shoulders? I wonder how he works into the Wings of Honor storyline if at all.

That looks pretty decent, like it was pictured in the '06 comic. Sucks though that it's a Botcon figure. Wonder if FP will ever get to do the rest of the Predacons?

Is this from the upcoming Botcon? If so, I think it's the one figure out of the set i want. While I wished this figure was a mass release figure, or maybe a club store exclusive, I can understand why they went with a Botcon exclusive. Very cool figure, which I'm happy the made a reality somehow.

Well there are no Scout molds at all yet, I'm sure there must be at least one yet to be revealed. Maybe they'll use the Backstop mold since that was also a toy one of the Neo Predacons were based upon.

Looks good, a lot like the version I digibashed while the Cybertron toyline was in full swing. Like on the Elite Guard guys, I'm not so into the new faction symbols, but those could probably be removed and covered up on this toy.

I'm curious if he will appear somehow in this year's fiction, or if, like Alpha Trion among the Classics toys, he will be the odd-bot-out, not appearing in that fiction. After all, we know this is the form of Razorclaw in the far post-Beast Machines future of Cybertron. You don't think he goes back in time and tries to change the course of the first days of the Great War do you?

Oh well, I least I have the Classic Legends version of the toy from Target. It's like a mini-Botcon toy now.

Yeah, I am happy enough with my Legends Razorclaw too. I do hope they'll do an Ultra sized Trypticon repaint of the Cyberton Scourge at some point.

Well, this should make quite a few folks happy. I remember quite a few members stating that a Razorclaw made from this mold would be well worth the price they'd hafta pay for it if it was made by the club, now they can put their money where their mouth is. icon-fire.gif


And no, this isn't a bash to those folks, I'm genuinely happy for them. icon-ironhide.gif

I'd be happy with more Legends that resemble Botcon toys.

Let's see a Legends Alpha Trion, SG Starscream, Pre-Beast Wars Megatron, etc. I don't think anyone would have a problem with re-creating Botcon toys in mini-versions. It wouldn't violate the convention exclusivity at all.

If it's attendee exclusive it will be pretty hard to get ahold of pretty quick. Have you seen how much a pre-Beast Wars Megatron sells for today If you can find it? The last one sold on ebay for $450, and only ONE has even been listed in the last 3 months, that one. I hope Fun Pub makes a LOT of this guy, because there will be a big demand.

Yeah that's my point. Since Razorclaw first appeared in the Botcon comic lots of folks have been clamoring for him from the club, many stating he'd totally be worth the higher club prices. Personally I can't justify paying the price this thing will eventually go for seeing as how it's only a mediocre mold, but it'll be interesting to see how high the aftermarket prices go for this guy.

On a similar note, Alpha Trion goes fairly cheap and Shattered Glass Megatron is easily in the 100s.

The more I see, the more I'm hugging pissed I can't go. I'm pissed enough I had to cancel my registration/hotel/etc... to pay for a colonoscopy. Seeing the figures makes it worse.

I almost want to start purging my collection just to buy Razorclaw, Leozack, Scourge, and Kup. I'll do some crazy trades if anyone wants to broker a deal. I've got all the g1 combiners, and most of the large Post g1 Japanese figures (Victory, Battlestars, Zone).

It probably doesn't fit into the Wings of Honor storyline at all, like Alpha Trion didn't fit into the Games of Deception story.

So does this mean the only "original" character at Botcon will be Landshark? All the others are homages to G1 characters? Oh well, i have the original Razorclaw, the Beast Wars Crab and Mutant, the Universe Tigerhawk repaint, the Cybertron Mini-Con Jet, the Legends, and the Shattered Glass Mini-Con. It would be nice to have the newest version, but I doubt I can afford it.

If this has the Prime head (a bit unlikely unless they actually got first dibs) or a new mold head (A bit more likely) I'll definatly want it. Razorclaw is one of my favorite Decepticons, and Legends is just too small for him.
