    I haven't seen this posted before and I have been waiting for them, since I missed them the first time around. So I have been keeping an eye out and I finally found them! They had Soundwave, Optimus, Rodimus, and Ultra Magnus.

    They also had tons of the Tracks shirts

    I picked up Megatron and Optimus on Tuesday. Could have had Roddy and Magnus, but I had got them loose last week from an Allspark.com member. Passed on Soundwave, got the ACT 3 or 4 one coming with some other PVC's from a member here.

    I'm addicted to this plactic!

    The back of the box shows Megs, Optimus, Rodimus, Ultra Magnus and Soundwave. And I have no idea about the paint.

    pretty sure these guys are colored plastic (dominant color) and the rest is painted on. Some removable pieces might be their own color, but I don't know.

    There are some "ghost" ones out there, but they are usually that ACT Takara PVC's I see.

    Wow, I didn't realize that Blitzkrieg Pop was released in 1977. That IS an interesting factoid. What were we talking about? :dunce

    What type of store is Hot Topic?

    I was able to get some the first time, but missed out on a lot of the good ones.

    Hot Topic is a store for people labeled as "punks and metalheads", mainly clothes. and leather accessories with studs and spikes. I used to love that stuff when i was in high school.

    For me, they are cheaper than buying the actual toy. I like them because they are like little tributes or memorials for those characters that I love.

    Thats right... even though they don't actually transform.

    We have an indie "alternative" clothing shop called Hot Gossip on 17th here, not Hot Topic. No relation whatsoever - though they might sell some overpriced Hot Topic merch that they bought off eBay.

    Hot Topic is an exclusively American chain store usually found in malls that caters to the youngling wannabe punk, goth & metal kids. They sell tons of band merch, t-shirts, pins, platform boots, vinyl clothing, bad curio jewellry and some music usually within the industrial/goth/punk/metal genres. It's as cookie cutter mainstream "alternative" as things get... and they make a fortune doing it since there's a neverending stream of kids & posers to buy this shit up. How they have anything to do with Transformers now is completely beyond me.
