Found the TRU exclusive today in Peabody,MA. Here is the pic.
Hoist looks like awesomeness...Mixmaster still looks like recolored ASS....that mold is just a waste of potential...looks like a cross between a wannabe general grevious and a robot monkey...
Yeah, if I didn't already have Longarm, I'd get this for Hoist and sell off that other G1 repaint-gone-wrong. Sometimes they look good, sometimes they don't, and sometimes they're an abomination of nature. Mixmaster here is the latter.
Yeah, I had to pick it up for Hoist. Hagerstown MD TRU had about 5 of them... Also had about 10 "Gathering at The Nemesis" sets and 10 Whirl/Bludgeon sets.
Too bad there wasn't a set including Hoist, G1 deco Soundwave and Bludgeon. THAT I would buy in a heartbeat.
I have decided with everything that has been released recently, this set has become a pass for me. I have sworn off repaints in this line, and these would just sit in car mode on the Classics shelf (even then I feel it is a stretch for mixy). Getting them may dash my hopes of a Classics Hoist whenever universe (whatever it will be called) comes back. And if we do get one, then I have an ugly ass ROTF Hoist to put in a box and never see again.
Too damn much cool stuff coming out for me to take a chance on this one.
I wonder if there is anyone out there who only wants this for Mixy... if so let me know, as, like most, I only want Hoist.
