    I wasn't aware that "not paid enough to give a shit" was an attitude that makes you heroic.

    There's nothing been said 100% but there was one photo of the box with a Walgreens sticker on it so for now I'd say yeah but that could change.

    The ToysRUs at International Mall in Miami had 2 The Last Knight Voyager Hounds and 1 Voyager Megatron today around 2pm. It also had 4 Planet Cybertrons. The ToysRUs by Dadeland Mall had 1 Leader Combiner Wars Armada Megatron today around 4pm. I'm guessing that it was a return or a found in the warehouse item. The box and figure looked mint. If you want Robots In Disguise Activator Optimus Prime with Hi-Test or Soundwave with Laserbeak go to Target. The Target on Flagler and 101 Avenue, the one on Bird Road and the 826, the one on US 1 and 104 Street had several of each this afternoon. Good luck everyone.

    my TR Trypticon arrives today and i'm a bit nervous after seeing all the headlines about "exploding hips." is this a confirmed, wide-spread issue? i saw one guy on tumblr (itswalky) say that his is just fine but there's so much buzz about needed modifications. does anybody have definitive info about how careful i need to be with this kaiju?

    I have had mine for a week, and so far so good. Although I only transformed him once then put him in my display case.

    did you notice difficult with the hips? i know that to transform him to city mode, you've got to rotate the hips a number of clicks. i'm sincerely hoping this is a relatively isolated incident -- i don't want to have to mod a $150 toy but i also saw the shortcuts they took with Fort Max :/

    Because of everything being said about it I was extremely gentle with it, one slow turn at a time, but you do have to put some force into rotating them. It makes a loud click when you do it, so that freaked me out. I wish I could give you more info on it but after one transformation plus all of the news about it, I just put him on the shelf.
