    Hasbro keeps making stupid useless gimmick figures for Bumblebee and too many striped Starscreams pegwarming alot in the toy aisles.

    I pretty much give up on Transformers figures these days due to Hasbro and their constant Bumblebees and Starscreams and even Barricades clogging up the peg racks in stores.

    Sure I do get to see once in awhile the Optimus Prime and Megatron two pack at a Family Dollar Store thats a bit pricey at 20 bucks but at least they're not a Bumblebee gimmick figure with stupid Cybertronian symboles painted all over

    Well if you're still itching for people to stfu & take your money (its a feeling we all share, believe me), there's always older figures to harp over when the current stuff loses you. For example, I've sort of exhausted the new stuff that I'm into (that's out now anyway), but there's a rather endless supply of Beast Wars & whatnot for me to branch back into. Heck, I just bought Alternity Skywarp & RID Cryotek along with some Animated figures & parts for a G2 Sideswipe, and let me tell you. No size of Bumblebee hive was gonna stop me from doing that. :)

    I can always respect sombody elses opinion, but always feel like the odd man out for being so blissfully happy with current TF product. This is an ongoing thing.

    Dude. There's always collecting loose vintages... Or post G1. Or bizarre KO's. You need to re-evaluate that statement. There's trading.

    I also noticed you made similar previous threads regarding Bumblebee or NEW STUFF.

    I'm so sick of Bumblebees that i have hundreds of them. J/k.

    Anyway, to the TS, surely you'll find something to interest you from the older lines, G1 perhaps? Or something more current like FOC?

    :lol 




    :cry 

    Yeah it's nice to track down some older figures you missed out :) 
    I can't find anything new at retail (shops here keep on restocking TFP wave1 deluxes and Cyberverse) but I put the money into some imports. Funny I never seem to have enough money.....

    Whatever floats your boat. I don't see how they're too many Starscreams and especially Barricades, the latter of which has gotten a sum total of two toys in the past year. And one was a retool.

    Yep, wave 1's still holding down the forts up here too, but I'm hopeful that we'll start getting newer waves eventually, what with it seeming to be in everyone's financial best interest to do so.

    Until then though, I'll just have to do myself a favor & spend less time in the internet looking at Rapticon pictures because I can wholeheartedly blame TFW for the majority for my binging. Cybertron.ca too, which seems to cover the local bets quite well.

    So it's not just us, eh. I was going to spend the money for TFP on some Joe figures instead, but, oh well.

    OMG what have you done to me?! I want one.

    I get TC's POV but I agree with the suggestions here. Go and hunt for older TF figures or so. I'm trying to hunt down some TF i missed out during the past few years.

    Sydney - you into G.I Joe also? You bought any of the current movie toys?
