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.

@  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.

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. :)

@  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.

This looks one of the better attempts at making Nightbird.
Still, being a non-transforming figure, getting it isn't very high on my list.

I might have been interested in it as a "Decepticon" if they had given it a transformation.

I really would like a Nightbird figure, as her episode was always one of my favorites as a kid. I haven't jumped at any of the other attempts and I would pick this up if it weren't for the price (this is coming from someone who dropped the $600 + for Hercules). I think the pricepoint is far, far out of alignment with the reality of what the figure is. I don't really want a transforming Nightbird, just a decent representation of the figure at a reasonable (read: no more than say, $50) price.

Am I the only one who wants to see third parties dig deeper? Between Arcee, Nightbird, Devastator and Optimus Prime, we have a fairly shallow pool overall. I want more Springer type stuff. (I actually want Springer himself too). This is what? The third or fourth Nightbird? Why is Nightbird four times as relevant as Blitzwing or Broadside or Blaster? Don't get me wrong, the work that went into this is very impressive, but these companies need to widen their net if they want to scrape some of my play money away from me.

That was available at TFcon a couple years back, and that one was clearanced out at BBTS for $30 pretty quick. Nice little toy too, but a little thin and floppy.

I have a theory that third parties now look at each other and go, "You did that? Nuh-uh, no you didn't! I'ma do it like ten times better!"

Blaster and maybe Broadside are covered at least.

And MP-sized Blaster is in the works from the guys doing the MP-sized Soundwave, and Broadside is still on FansProject's list, after being teased at TFCon like, 3-4 years ago or something. He was probably Warbot-02, as listed on FansProject's (ridiculously, unbelievably optimistic) release schedule for last year.

We do really need a Blitzwing from somebody though. He's the last major hole in a Classics Decepticon army, with no real 3rd Party or outside-line (ie: Energon Shockblast or Cybertron/Device Label Soundwave filling in for Classics) substitute.

I personally attribute his absence to the relative difficulty of designing a robot that transforms into both a semi-realistic jet and tank, without being simply an articulated retread of the G1 design. But what do I know?

I hadn't heard about the MP Blaster. I'll believe Broadside when I see it. I really should have branched out beyond the first three B names that sprang to mind. Impactor maybe? Sandstorm triple changer? WFC Shockwave? I could go for an updated Tailgate after MtmtE #1. I could go on. Anyway, sorry to derail the thread. Though now I want to design a new Blitzwing.

iGear had Impactor in the works, but no clue whether that'll get done or not. Entirely new mold, but directly borrows Generations Warpath's engineering.

Hasbro's giving us RoC Shockwave in the next Generations line. Wave 1, along with the new Prime and Jazz.

Same here. Sex sells, I know, but do we also need that to sell giant transforming robots? (Then again, KISS Players...)

Zero interest in Nightbird. She was a non-entity who had no personality or even a voice. I'd buy toys of the cartoon's Sentinel Prime (that rhino-car) before hers.
