    Didn't see your post originally but I grabbed a set too! There was only one set left plus one of each of two of them. Someone must have stashed or bought the other purple guy

    Was out in Chicago visiting some friends and took a bit of a stroll around to check out some collector stores. Pretty sparse at a lot of them, but Kapow toys on Belmont Ave in the Lakeview section had some interesting stuff. Not much of it was in pristine condition, but still worth a look. A few things I can remember were a sealed original BW Megatron, a RID Cryotek, a TF07 Voyager Rescue Ratchet, and quite a bit else. Prices were a little steep, but you might be able to haggle with the guy.

    After playing around with the guys, I think Blot is the best of the three new guys. Doesn’t look like much, per se, but dang he is solid and has a nice transformation. Sinner Twin was the guy I most looked forward too, but he’s kinda janky, due to some unfortunate design choices. Cutthroat is not terrible, but easily the worst due to the bird head popping off way too easy and the crest and jaw falling out of it as well. Blot is about equal to Rippersnapper in terms of excellent quality.

    Yeah, Blot is AWESOME! I love that guy. Great transformation tricks both in the fold out claws and the way the legs swing up behind him in monster mode. Love that guy! Sinnertwin is my least favorite. His plastic feels much thinner than the rest of the set. But I'm glad they at least worked in SOME neck articulation in the monster heads. Rippersnapper has a very solid, satisfying feel to him, he's probably my next favorite limb after Blot.

    Haven't combined them yet, but this is already shaping up to be one of the very best combiner teams in my collection...

    So far, the Only PotP stuff (not counting exclusives or Predaking, but that doesn’t mean I’m not getting them ;) ) I still need are Moonracer, Wave 3 Prime Masters, Rodimus Unicronus, Elita-1, and Optimal Optimus... so if anyone has anything to report sightingwise with any of ones I listed, please be sure to share :)

    Posted in the Chicago tf Facebook group too, just gonna copy/paste-

    Have a bunch of detolfs at my parents place in oak Park that I’ll probably never try to lug cross country and I’m gonna be in Chicago this upcoming weekend and for a few days. 4 of them are the light brown colored ones, and have slight water damage on the bottom shelf (yeah p1, your old ones). The damage wasn’t bad, I can post pictures when I get into town. I also have 4 or 5 dark brown ones that are like new. I was thinking like 10 bucks on the light ones and maybe 20 on the dark ones ? Open to offers too. Just gotta be able to pick them up from oak park-

    Feel free to drop a line if any interest, or if you maybe know anyone that would maybe be interested.. let them know ? Thanks for reading in any event ^^

    I also had wave 3 hit here way out in Freeport Walamrt. I have all the Abominus deluxes now. But I doubt I'll ever find a Hun-grr. And I don't feel like paying inflated prices for him either. Here's hoping prices will drop soon or I just get real lucky.

    Heads up @Kaijufan95 there are wave 2 POTP deluxes (including moonracer and blackwing) at Blono Meijer. You said you needed Moonracer, so just a heads up. Also BOGO 50% off signs are still up so they should still honor them. No SS wave 2 deluxes though
