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)

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

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)

@  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)

For TFWiki, we would certainly prefer the actual pieces scanned for better quality when it comes to those types of materials.

If we can even get just one collection of the scripts, I'll gladly chip in again.

Heck, even I would probably chip in for one of the script sets. Personally, I think the real "gems" of the bunch are the audition papers and the Hasbro briefing material. Personally, I'm betting the art cels and model sheets will end up being the most expensive since those can be "displayed" much better than the scripts.

OOOh, got some GI Joe stuff in there too!

Bingo. I would especially like the 1st draft to the movie. Isn't this what Flint Dille said was terrible, and had extensive rewrites? I would really like to see what's in it...

I've managed to rip all the images at full resolution from the auctions. Added a chunk of notes to Unicron and "Sharkon"'s pages on the Wiki. The Unicron robot mode introduces nothing new, while the planet mode pages have a load of previously unknown stuff. The Sharkticon page is useful for figuring out what the hell Dery meant by "Sharkticon is a shark".

Also, Wreck-Gar's notes contain nothing new, but also has the line "Of the three, the planet Entity, Sharkon the beast and Junkion the motorcycle, Junkion is the easiest to transform. Discover how I did the transformation for Junkion." He also says on the Unicron bot page that if the transformation is too hard for the toy designers, he will come and help them. To the toy designers. Who created the line.

Floro Dery, don't ever change.


Also, the handwritten Friedman note on the front of the "final" script about the Autobots and Decepticons having the same name for their "essence", "Flame", is intensely interesting to me, since other than Furman's "Lifespark" mess-up, I was unaware that a Transformer "soul" came up pre-Beast Wars.

I like how the character page specifically compares Megatron and Starscream to Destro and Cobra Commander. It also says Megatron doesn't joke but that's certainly not true. He just has a cruel sense of humor. It also specifically says that Soundwave speaks in a "sing-song" voice and that he's "more machine than human". Thundercracker and Skywarp's personalities are correctly summed up as "thugs". It also lists Shockwave as "keeper of the flame" which may or may not refer to the Transformers "essence" mentioned on one of the movie script drafts. I wonder if that's perhaps where the Sacred Flame in the comics originated (or probably vice-versa)?

I'm not sure what that line about an Autobot who "talks to Coke machines" and "gets involved" is about. Maybe it refers to the Autobots in general?

It also lists Grimlock's previous names as "Trapjaw" (no surprise they didn't/couldn't choose that) and "Jawbreaker". I think I've heard the latter before as an early name but not the former. Interesting.

Can anyone make out what the scratched out early name for Jetfire was going to be? The name other than "Fireball".

There are also some auctions for similar materials from "G.I. Joe" including an early outline for The Movie which has some interesting details that were never used along with early names for some Joes. Apparently, Golobulus was going to be called "Imperator" which is a much better name and Serpentor (originally "King Cobra" but we knew that) had his own Praetorian Guard just like the Roman emperors who contributed to his DNA.
Apparently, Cobra-La was going to be in Greenland (???) instead of the Himalayas and an entire Joe outpost was going to be wiped out. Nemesis Enforcer was going to use "Bio Life Drones" that coil around a dead Joe's head (!!!) and can mimic their voices to make routine check-ins so that Joe HQ doesn't know what really happened.

Lt. Falcon originally being Hawk's son is nothing new (they even kept the name derivation even if he changed relatives) but I think his nickname of "Kiddy Hawk" is as well as that his actual codename was simply Lt. Hawk (maybe "Hawk" was going to be the General's real surname instead of
Abernathy). Law & Order aren't even mentioned with the Joe "Hotshots" but someone named "Riverboat" is. Also, one of the Marauders was going to be called "Lotus Steele" (I wonder if that was going to be a female?).

Anyway, I hope some fan wins these auctions and makes some of the more interesting tidbits available!

I can maybe kick in $5 or $10; I might throw in a little more depending upon when I get paid next.
