    That line must have really tanked, I think it just came out like two months ago. For it to be on clearance already is astonishing.

    Yep, I did a double take when I saw the clearance stickers. Things just got set in the 7/30 transition. Oh well, more room for classics and SW exclusives!

    Yeah!! More room for TFs, I say. They actually don't look that bad, but there are too many other brands that have more drawing power.

    The ninja figure was the only one that looked cool. And of course those were all gone when they went on clearance.

    Glad to see the line winding down. It distracted Hasbro UK from TFs.

    If memory serves, this is what they gave the Alternator's former shelf space to at Wal-Mart. Good to see the line tank.

    I almost bought that car just because it reminded me of one of the cars from the old Pole Position cartoon. The hovercars that pulled into and out of a semi-trailer while driving down the road? I friggin' loved that cartoon.

    But yeah, mostly they looked pretty so-so.

    I bought a Rocket Board Axel at full price and a XT-9000 (which I find odd, why would it be slightly renamed for the US market??) for cheap ages ago.

    I think they're OK, but the car is flimsy because of its size, and the Figure's legs aren't articulated enough. My main gripe about these is Hasbro UK concentrated on these and did nothing with Sigma Six, which irritates me, hence I have no Sigma Six stuff at all.

    Don't remember. Just remember having to be up to watch that cartoon Saturday regardless of what anybody said or did to me.
