  1. There are some good things going on here, but the Mixmaster foot does look really off. Head seems a bit tiny as well. Those 2 issues unfortunately do hurt the look for me. But I'll wait for more pics.
  2. My local Target just seems to spawn endless supplies of wave 2.
  3. Hopefully simple design doesn't mean "upscaled Legends" or anything like that.
  4. If I hadn't bought the original Bee, I'd probably be all over this. I'm a sucker for G2, and Bee looks nice in gold. As it stands though, it's just too similar to the first release to warrant another purchase. Agreed about the need for a true Goldbug here. I wonder if this is the closest we're going to get, though.
  5. Anyone excited about Goldbug? edit: Err, I mean G2 Bumblebee.
  6. I believe the legal action that BBTS is citing only applies in the USA though. So unless TakaraTomy chooses to voluntarily alter the deco, the release of MP-23 as originally shown should go ahead as planned in Japan. So it would just a matter of importing it via HLJ or another shop.
  7. The petition is asking that the paint scheme be drastically altered by TakaraTomy. The problem is, this figure is an homage to the old Diaclone release. Change the deco and the homage is lost. Personally, I would advise people to go thru one one the many Japanese retailers that will be offering this release to US buyers, rather than requesting to have the deco changed for the benefit of domestic retailers like BBTS (with all due respect to them). Of course, if Hasbro ever releases this (doubtful), they will be required to change it up quite a bit.
  8. It's coming. It's scheduled as a late November release.
  9. There may be some Asia-based shops willing to sell it without a plug.
  10. Nice score Devilbat. Glad you're able to collect again.
  11. I'm definitely ready for Takara to do some Coneheads at this point. Would be nice if Hasbro would get to Starscream with the newer mold as well. Once they've run out of wacky repaints of course.
  12. I stand corrected; the promo pics do show Evasion Prime with a faceplate. In your other thread, I asked if you had maybe mixed it up with the Grimlock 2-pack version. Lame that they changed it. I would've been tempted to buy that Classics Prime as a solo release. Not really interested in paying for a 2-pack just to get it though.
  13. I was at Target earlier and saw the masked Evasion Mode Prime in a 2-pack with FOC Grimlock. Maybe that's the one you were thinking of? It's gotten a bit confusing with how many times that mold has been released already.
  14. It was one of those can-I-help-yous (as I was heading towards the exit, no less) that resulted in my acquiring a Masterpiece Soundwave. He asked, I thought about it for a second, and decided to humor the fella. He disappeared for a few minutes and returned with a fresh case of Soundwaves. So, you never know.
  15. ^^^^Ooh nice. Crosscut's the one I really want from this wave. I might get Windblade if there's a sale...
  16. Went to TRU tonight looking for some new Generations figures, and noticed their Generations Deluxe prices are up to $17. Man that's brutal. Really looking forward to Crosscut at the moment (the Skids redeco).
  17. Huh. I wonder if Exhaust will have a hidden face too.
  18. Tfu.info has a GoBots section as well where you can sort them by faction. http://www.tfu.info/Gobots/index.htm I've got a carded black Cy-Kill that I'm kinda proud to own.
  19. Argh, I love these kinds of obscure references. Damn them for tempting me with another repaint. >_<
  20. I don't know, it sounds plausible to me that there may be a street date for these and some employees might be unknowingly breaking it. Walgreens is pretty new to the whole action figure exclusive game. If there is a street date, it would also explain why they haven't shipped your figure yet. I think you just got a customer service rep who took his job a little too seriously. Maybe he thought he was going to get a promotion by exposing these 'rogue elements' within the Walgreens system, haha. How annoying though, all you want is some answers about your Boba Fett and you're being asked to "name names" instead. They shouldn't waste your time with that silliness.
  21. Maybe it was supposed to be Chewie? Remember Hasbro showed him off in the smaller orange/black packaging in a wonky looking pose? But then they apparently thought better of it and pushed him back so he'd only appear in the updated packaging.
  22. Here ya go. http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=DWU10057&mode=retail
  23. is it a new figure or the original ? It's a re-release of the Robot Masters figure. They're also re-releasing the Optimus Primal from that line.
  24. I'm guessing the limbs will be Deluxe sized and priced accordingly, around $15 these days, with the team leaders being Voyagers in the $22 range.
