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.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 September 2017 - 09:04 PM)

Hooray! It only took 8 years, but laika finally learned to NOT play with the striped kitty!

@  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)

@  MEDdMI : (15 September 2017 - 04:25 PM)

Pshaw, internet! Back in my day, we wrote notes, wrapped them around rocks, and threw them at each other's heads!

@  Benbot : (15 September 2017 - 03:32 PM)

That's why I used Napster at work

@  wonko the sane? : (15 September 2017 - 11:37 AM)

Didn't know that then... pay for high speed so I don't have to now.

Trust me Predaking, I am ancient enough to hold such memories.

@  The Predaking : (15 September 2017 - 07:50 AM)

That 3 MB mp3 was lost forever.

@  The Predaking : (15 September 2017 - 07:49 AM)

You will never know the pain of Downloading a file on Dial up for 6 hours, only to have it stop at 99%.

@  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)

I was partial to King's Quest and Police Quest

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

Currently playing part 2.

@  The Predaking : (14 September 2017 - 01:56 PM)

Man, I love those games!

@  The Predaking : (14 September 2017 - 01:56 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.

The original comic had both Japanese and English, but I edited the scans to have just English and in bigger font (so it's easier to read).

I'm surprised to see them follow the whole Rodimus never being comfortable as a Prime thing so faithfully. I was under the impression the Japanese had their own interpretation of most of the characters.

Thanks again for this Hydra, it explains exactly how Black Rodimus came to be. That it was Rodimus' feelings of doubt, Starscream seizing an opportunity to try and get revenge by using the Clone Synthesizer to give Black Rodimus a body. It also explains how the Black Rodimus (not Convoy) was able to get the matrix from Rodimus Convoy (knowing that Hot Rod at full ramming speed was at least able to topple Galvatron twice). So Awesome!

Randy

Edit: I'm glad to see my assumption was right that Rodimus Prime unknowingly created Black Rodimus (it seems to imply both emotionally as well as physically due to his dream like state).

I'm using this Black Rodimus Convoy in a completely different way.

To me he is the color scheme that Rodimus Prime becomes when he is possessed by Unicron in the Marvel U.K. stories Shadow of Evil / White Fire. He doesn't have a Decepticon insignia though.

Yup, this Rodimus was intended to be a different character than the G1 Dark Hot Rod, who had been created by Megatron.

This is more of a physical manifestation of Rodimus's insecurities, given a body by the clone synthesizer.

Rodimus's difficulties grappling with the responsibilities of leadership have been a pretty prominent focus
of the character in additional Japanese fiction, such as Macrocosmic Seekers:

This is also a great read, if you haven't seen it yet.

Thanks again for the info Hydra. I know there was some question if the two Black Rodimus were the same character or not (particularly among the TFWiki people). Nice to have confirmation one way or another.

I would have thought they were different characters due to their different origins, existing before or after the events of the movie, and the fate of the 2001 guy.
