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)

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

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.

@  Pennpenn : (15 September 2017 - 07:47 AM)

I love when I'm downloading something and the download rate is inversly proportinal to the progress meter.

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

I'm thinking of using the original Dragon Quest to help me with my Japanese since it only uses Hiragana and has spaces. :)

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 September 2017 - 10:40 PM)

@  MaxVer : (14 September 2017 - 08:21 PM)

@  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.

Peaceman, Fracas and Aimless.

From 28 December 2011, by spending 3,000 yen or more at participating stores on Transformers Prime merchandise, customers will receive a free Mini-con.

Otherwise, I am underwhelmed by the repaints, shoddy color choices. I made better repaints of these guys myself.

I'm glad it's Blowpipe rather than Fracas again. This way, these Mini-cons can be used as either Prime or as a continuation of the United Mini-cons.

Still zero mention of G1/United/Targetmasters or anything of the sort on the page.

Not quite... Pointblank isn't orange, and Triggerhappy is more gray, and neither Trigger or Misfire really have much black.

I guess we'll have to see what the instructions say, it could go either way as it makes no mention of them being United but the 2nd set of United ones were marketed with Autobot Alliance as they had new releases the day they were released. These do follow in the fashion of the United ones and use characters not yet used for that line.

Yeah, upon closer inspection you're right. I wonder if it was a halfhearted attempt at it anyway. Aimless is definitely more Misfire than he is Aimless.

But this does make me want them MORE.
