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

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

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.

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)

@  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.

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)

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.

Eh, I dunno. I kinda dig the Roadblock myself, and both Beachhead and Kamakura are good custom fodder. With a new head and some new accessories, Kamakura can make a nice VvV-inspired Night Creeper, while Beachhead is so basic, the sky is essentially the limit.

I just don't understand that reasoning, since that requires them to put cost into development, sculpting, and the molds for the brick drivers. That's a lot of money that mix-and-matching doesn't require, since it only needs one of those steps.

Actual parts production is the issue. Even with all the parts already tooled, a figure with 30ish parts costs more to make than a new figure with 7ish parts.

Good news everyone!

With Saturday Nights plans de-railed by possible food poisoning (damn you Burger King and your chicken sandwiches!), I stayed home to dine on crackers rather than pizza. So in the morning ran to the east-side Wal-mart to get some soup (and scout for any 'new Phyrexia' packs/intro decks/fat-packs/ect that might be hanging about... want my elsh norn dammit!!!!), and lo and behold, they'd gotten in Joes for the first time since they clearanced out the movie figs.

Someone had sniped Sci-fi and one of the zombies, but I did pick up the rest, including law (who I was on the fance about).

He might as well be at one per case. I've seen everyone else multiple times at this point, but I've yet to see SS in the wild.

One per case in a single wave, with everyone else getting held over/added to in the next wave, and that wave being the one getting stocked at many places...

I got a wave 4 case from BBTS... I keep telling myself I don't need him... there have been at least five BEST STORM SHADOW EVARs since 2007, so we'll probably get an even better one soon enough... and this particular mold is getting at least two Retaliation repaints, along with most of the accessories being reused...

You misunderstand. Storm Shadow's in the wave 3 case, and as such is the only figure I wasn't able to get. I'm trying to talk myself out of buying another case of guys I already have to get him... or in the alternative, paying as much as a case just to get him.

The red ninja is going to be Slice, because... well, really now.

The Storm Shadow I will probably make into an approximation of VvV Slice, but call Slash, because I don't need two guys named Slice and I have too damn many red ninjas anyway.

The Snake Eyes will... eh.

Same situation with my Walmart, seems Wallyworld might be giving Joe some support leading up the movie (that, or simply slotted the existing line to "save space" for the movie stuff in May).

Either way, I might be seeing new Joes locally again (and not at a collector/drug store prices!)...right after getting all I wanted via Walgreens and TRU.com... icon-megs.gif
Hell, knowing Walmart, they won't even get any Joes (or if they do, it will be one or two piddly cases) until they start build up for Retaliation.
