    There's a lot going on in each bot. Several extra hinges to make the transformations work and short posts for anchoring.the legs in both modes of Roadtrap are... complex for the size.

    And it may be my eyes but the purple highlights on shades of grey instructions are hard to follow at times. Add to it, what seems like overlap and backtracking at certain points.

    That all said, for their size and Hasbro's price range, the designer certainly put extra effort into them. You can tell they were special.

    I do wish the rotor blades cleaned up better... or became a weapon... anything to having one blade hang like a tail.

    Alright, so I made a mistake with Studio Series Deluxe Ratchet. As it turns out, he holds together just fine in both modes. The issue was actually one of the thighs. Instead of a ballsocket on a rotational joint attached to the thigh, its a long piece that goes all the way down, which is secured at the bottom. This joint was jostled out of place, and as a result the leg was bumping into everything and preventing him from staying together.

    I see what you did there, lol. In all seriousness, I left them behind. I'm holding out for Lexington comic and toy con, and I've got a >$50 pull list next Wednesday at my local comic shop.

    Same though! I'm holding out on most of my third-party purchases, too. Hoping some nice folks at the con will have something nice.

    Not. A. Damn. One. I went to Meijer and WM in Alexandria, WM in Ft. Wright, WM in Florence (near Best Buy) and Target in Newport yesterday and saw nada. I'm headed out of town tomorrow (Nashville)...will hopefully find something there!

    Right! I think I already know what is going to happen this week. I am going visit Nashville and all parts in between only to find that I missed out on all them. Meanwhile, they will show up in NKY and SW Ohio only to be picked clean before I return Friday night. I probably ought to get used to the idea of settling for another clearanced TR Laserbeak at WM. Those usually cheer me up!

    I can tell you guys both Walmart’s here in Owensboro received 2 boxes of wave 1 deluxes. I can’t figure their distribution out at all. Ours come from Hopkinsville Distribution Center. No wave 2 has been in stock there at all because they still have tons of wave 1 left over. Manager said he just reordered deluxes and that’s what came in. So I’ll have to go elsewhere to find them. The Target here had 3 each of Hungurr and Elita1. I picked up a Hungurr

    Funny thing is, a lot of the Wal-Mart stores around here are bone dry on PotP. Bashford and Fern Creek Wal-Marts had wave 2 Legends and occasional Voyagers and Leaders for a while, and then -- nothing. Might do some hunting tomorrow (because god knows Brickseek is doing zero good).

    Nothing in Florence today. No wave 2 at target/walmart/Meijer.

    Hoping deluxes show up soon.

    Just a reminder guys, Lexington ComicCon is the 9th-11th. We'll have both of the released Unrustables figures, and both Prospect sets on hand. Plus a limited supply of the Kickstarter and convention exclusive Otomo, available ONLY during the show!

    We'll be there on the second floor in the Bluegrass Ballroom. ;)
