    Should I get them as soon as?

    And before you say anything, I've watched plenty of reviews, but I'm still stuck between two minds. I was thinking I would get them after I get all the other figures I want at the moment, and if there's nothing new that I want by the time I do that.

    I have the two deluxe figures from Revenge of the Fallen as well as the Ice-Cream truck, so should I add them to my list of definitely gonna buy figures or should I leave them to rest on the shelf until I'm left with no other options but to impulse buy due to lack of releases. I just wanted to get an opinion from those who have the toy.

    Thanks in advance guys.

    They're good, but you can wait. Out of the two Mudflap, just like in RotF, is the better one. Skids isn't bad, but there are some design choices that kinda keep it from being really good, mainly the inverted knees and shoulders.

    This is actually the sole reason I even bought them! The bots are OK, but certainly nothing to rush out for IMHO. I just wanted the alt-modes as I really like the look of them, so they'll definitely be staying that way for the vast majority of my lifetime.

    i wouldnt wait. because you dont know what toy is going to be the shelfwarmer of the dotm toyline. to me, the rotf shelfwarmers were mudflap all versions) and demolisher. if you wait too long you might end up over paying online or paying regular price for an unpackaged one. (not as fun because i love unboxing toys, its like a mini-christmas :D ) and the fact that you have both rotf versions, you might as well get the last versions of them i think.

    Personally I never wait to purchase a figure that I know I want just in case it does disappear. I like both just fine so I honestly don't think you can go wrong with the $10 price point that they're currently at in Target and Wal-Mart.

    And Hasbro appears to have learned from that issue, of all the deluxes, the Twins thus far have had the lightest carryover between assortments. Probably to avoid the very issue seen with prior releases (heck, even the HA Skids is pretty easy to find, and he was only shipped ONE PER CASE!).

    Considering they aren't in the movie, I don't really view them as immediate buys, and even waiting a little while, they shouldn't be hard to get, even if you have to suck up shipping and get them from HTS.

    If you like them, get it now. I they've been hard to find at my TRU for some reason, so I plan on getting them ASAP. However if your priority is over characters in the movie or what not, I'd wait. But since like Steevy said they've learned from their mistakes, I'm not sure they'll end up shelfwarming as bad as Mudflap (Though I may just be hopeful)

    Thanks for all the advice guys. I really appreciate it.

    Well, yes my main priority is to get the characters that are actually in the film first of all. I know who I want and I plan on getting them as soon as I can.

    I think I will add the Twins to my list of want to get toys. Mudflap has yet to see a release here in Ireland, but they'll definitely be on my list of stuff to get. Not at the top, but they're there now. Thanks again guys, I appreciate it.

    Because they will shelfwarm.

    Look at your local TJMaxx, Marshalls and Ross... You may be able to find them at a discounted price.

    I've seen them multiple times this week for $7.49 (Im in South Florida)

    Well, I don't even live in the states. In fact, I live across the pond in Ireland, so all I have is a TJMaxx. May check them out at some point and see what they have.

    Wait 'til a good sale comes up, not necessarily "clearance" but those two're going to be on shelves for a LOOOOOOOONG time.

    Buy them, then smash them with a hammer.
