just ordered tr trypticon. should have it monday :)

@  OrionPax44 : (20 September 2017 - 04:57 PM)

@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)

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)

@  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)

This thread seems to be one of those who disappeared, so I'm restarting it.

I bought a set of Terrorcon combiners that DID NOT have two Technobots in it back in 2004. Oddly two of the terrorcons had weird colors. Sadly I sold them in a lot on ebay at the time, but just today I found the pictures I listed them on ebay with on an old hard drive, so here they are. They are 100% perfect size, and all the other Terrorcons seemed to be the right colors. Weird one.

I got my KO Minerva and Goshooter and they are awesome. It's too bad repro stickers don't exist for these (to my knowledge), because that's the only thing that would make these more perfect.

Are those the Korean ones that were being sold around a decade ago?

They're newer than that, but they use the same molds. Minerva has the same colors as the older knockoff. Go-Shooter doesn't have that weird out-of-place red plastic--it's blue instead, so it looks closer to the original G1 toy. He looks a lot better like that. They both have totally new stickers. Good plastic, good paint, good stickers, good assembly. It is leaps and bounds better than the usual Chinese crap we see. Not quite as good as the expensive "G1 replica" knockoffs, but a lot less expensive.

Some nitpicks: No working tech-spec reader on the chest. One of Go-Shooter's hands is a little too loose holding his gun. Minerva is supposed to have ratchet joint-like shoulders, but the little nubs come off almost immediately and it becomes just a normal rotating joint. I don't know if the plastic is too soft or if it was just assembled too tight. Go-Shooter's ratchet joints are pretty good.

Minerva's antenna are rotated 90 degrees like the previous version of the knockoff. Minerva has an extra sword and Go-Shooter has an extra shield, part of which becomes his rear license plate.

Overall, I really like them. I'll try to take some pics soon.

I have three extra pairs if anyone wants them. $50 + $5 shipping within the US for each pair (one Goshooter, one Minerva). PM me if you're interested.

I have that Terrorcon KO set. I got it mostly for the novelty of the blue Rippersnapper. They didn't combine very well.

According to both Full Metal Hero and KOtoys there is a reproduction quality KO Weirdwolf and Monzo on the way. If you need one of these Headmasters and don't mind a KO, this could be good news. On the bad side, keep your eyes open for shady characters selling them as the "real thing".

They should be out before Christmas.

They are also remaking that 10 pack of Headmaster Warriors that came out a while ago, and the price will be about $50 a set (they sell for over $100 now).

Other '87 Headmasters are under way, I'm told.

Ugh, God damn it, I hate full-on reproductions. They make it so hard to find the real deal and the repros sell for the same damn price anyway.

I don't even really collect G1s anymore (and sold most of mine), but somehow the 10pack of Headmasters is strangely tempting.

It is mostly based off of a robot from a Toei Tokusatsu show called "Changerion". The originals toys were made by, surprisingly, Sega:

I'm interested in this KO DOTM trailer. Seems it works with Classic Voyager Optimus. It's not meant for that mold, but it can work by shoving the trailer pug between Classic Optimus Prime's feet.
