    Hey all. I just ordered two of the transformers I've been craving more than others recently off bbts

    Classics Jetfire (34.99) and
    OFTCC Sideswipe (24.00)

    Sideswipe was always my favourite charcter as a kid (kind of a poor mans hotrod i suppose...) and to finally be getting this exclusive piece is great. Its complete but loose, which honestly I prefer as I dont have to get the guilt from opening something thats meant to be so relatively rare

    PS seems BBTS just got another batch of Jetfires in for anyone who just missed last time

    The OTFCC Sideswipe isn't that rare, at least fro mwhat I've seen. The Sunstreaker however is.

    But congrats on the haul

    It's a good thing your Sideswipe is loose as the packaging was craptacular at best. Graphics were nice, but the package quality was horrible. Enjoy!

    He was a RID Car Bros. repaint, as well as Sunstreaker, Roulette, and that other one.

    Yeah, I got my Sideswipe fairly easily and for a great price, Sunstreaker though I rarely see and when I do it's for way too much.

    Still, glad you got him since you wanted him so bad SharkyMcShark :D

    Yeah, theyre not selling them over here (as far as I know, and even if they are the nearest Target is like... 30 minutes drive [ie too far for a student w/o a license]) and I was in the mood as it looks great (and couldnt find ANYWHERE else selling them on the net)

    And its a good thing that its Streaker thats the more expensive/rare of the two because, even if I did like hom a bit more the Mach Alert mold just doesnt look as great in yellow as it does in red....

    $35 is about retail price for Jetfire over here. He's just shown up in some TRU's apparently, but only 1 per store by the sounds of things. The point is he's basically impossible to find.

    Yeah I was worried for a sec but 35 does work out to be the price in AuD for a mega/ultra (whatever he is...)
