Ok, I can't find the "Savage on a Ravage" pic that soneone pisted. Can anyone link me to it?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 September 2017 - 12:47 PM)

I'm also sure you don't sparkle like a disco ball, otherwise someone woulda run you over by now.

@  Dracula : (21 September 2017 - 12:40 PM)

I'm pretty sure most vampires would cause a gremlin infestation just for the giggles.

@  Noideaforaname : (21 September 2017 - 11:42 AM)

Hmm, a vampire would have a hell of a hard time getting rid of a Gremlin infestation, wouldn't he?

@  OrionPax44 : (21 September 2017 - 11:13 AM)

Well then there's yellowing but isn't that all of them. I like to leave all my TF's in a hot car all day long to let all their joints turn to jelly.

@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)

@  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)

Asking someone which year of "university" they're in seems so much more sophisticated than asking which year of "college" they're in.

@  Bass X0 : (15 September 2017 - 04:38 PM)

It was "Take Your Laserbeak To Work Day".... well, for me it was anyway. I was getting bored of being on hold when I made calls, so wanted something to relieve the boredom.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 September 2017 - 04:25 PM)

So many implies more than one.

Generation One, technically.

The Japanese series (Headmasters, Masterforce, Victory).

The Unicron Trilogy was told in three.

Yes, Animated.

But you know? The Joecon hints always point to something OBVIOUS that it turns out not to be, but still applies to something less obvious.
So I'm going to say this is the case here too, and might not be Animated after all.

Hence "technically", since a tiny multi-parter does not really a season make.

And "Megatron Conquers Cybertron" could be fun.

What molds would still be in viable working condition from Beast Wars or Beast Machines?

To me it's gotta be Animated considering what figures are available to them, and it's probably the one year they can still get enough interest in an Animated set before people completely move on to something else (due to the show and style being dropped from any new merch).

Yeah, exactly. This is the last viable shot for Animated, so my money is on that. Derrick Wyatt worked with them on Cheetor, so the relationship's already there.

They used most of Universe and Classics, a lot of ROTF (if not all) and all of Movie 1 is off the table, RTS and Generations are too new. Energon and Cybertron still have some molds, but I don't think the ones they have left are ones they're likely to want to visit.

Anything else is probably too old to go back to. So Animated is the only logical choice at this point. And as I (and Daytonus mentioned) if they're going to use them, now is the best (and probably only) time to do so.

If the rumors of what the toys will be (more Classics and Animated) are to be believed, perhaps we can expect a comic containing vignettes of several different continuities and a mix of toys accordingly.

This makes sense.

Why would they call a UT or Animated continuation "season 3.5" instead of "season 4"? Besides, last we were told, they didn't have access to the Animated universe, only the toys.

If it is Animated I wonder how many people will request they do Wingblade Optimus, Hydrodive Bumblebee, and Blackout even though TakaraTomy released them at cheaper prices than the BotCon figures would likely cost?

If it is Animated, I hope BotCon doesn't do anything that TakaraTomy did but Hasbro didn't.

Yeah. I'm going to get Cheetor because i'm a Beast Whore, but if the rest of the box set is Animated.....*looks at his box of Animated toys that has gone untouched for almost a year*

Not that I have anything in particular against Animated. I'll buy them at retail, but Botcon Exclusive prices? Probably not.

That said, i'm actually against the idea of a mixed Classics/Animated set. At that point you're trying to be all things to all fans, and I think singularity of focus and theme cohesion is better than a hodgepodge mishmash. Judging from past box set sales, most fans seem to feel this way also (2005 and, yes, 2010 have both suffered, while 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 have done mostly quite well, with the latter being somewhat on the iffy side. Yes, before anyone jumps in to correct me, I know this probably isn't the only reason that those two years didn't perform as well, but i'm pretty sure it was one of the major factors).
