    Found both Sideswipe and Shockwave. Only bought Wave. There were 1 Shockwave, 1 Sideswipe and 2 Prowls.

    So much fun for an ecomomy figure! 15234231811071687545475.jpg 20180411_004726.jpg 20180411_004533.jpg 20180411_004309.jpg 20180411_004101.jpg 20180411_003930.jpg 20180411_003918.jpg 20180411_003909.jpg

    Puerto Rico is part of the USA, and Walgreens is a USA chain. These toys have already been sighted in the USA so how is this news?

    The political situation is complicated but we're still technically a different country (not sovereign, and depending who you ask they may tell you we are not a country). When I first joined the boards I asked a mod, if I should report sightings as news and they gave me the green light. Sometimes some figures never make it here, but I know that is true for other places.

    In a couple of years, All Hasbro Transformers are gonna be made with the same cheap knockoff plastic as these Batallion figures. Hasbro is experimenting with these figures right now to see if people will buy them and people are buying them up like hot cakes. SMH

    Just found one at the Walgreens nearest my home. If Hasbro ever bothered to make a voyager scale Shockwave in the Generations line before, I dont think this Cyber Battalion figure would be in my hands right now.

    And after they buy them, they whine and complain about how terrible they are.

    Kids don’t collect. They get toys and break them or they become garbage

    Well for me it is an excellent figure even with its lack of articulation. I can't put it down! And it looks great alongside voyager TR Megs and POTP Starscream. I love it, and if they make other budget figures that complement CHUG like this one, I'll buy 'em. :D

    Dude I bought Shockwave so shut your pothole calling people idiots. By no means is the new Shockwave the best chug figure of 2018, but it fills a hole in my collection. The rest of this line sucks because of scale. But Shockwave gets a pass for being the right scale and looking hella G1.

    I gotta disagree. As a kid I took good care of my toys. Don't get me wrong, there was the occasional bad car wreck with and hammer and a hotwheel, but for the most part my toys lasted forever. Not all kids break and destroy toys. My nephew is almost three and he is as careful with my marvel legends and transformers as I am.
