    Bought the Prime from IGH Target. Bout ready to ask AJ's for a full refund and order Sixshot somewhere else before he goes out of stock forever.

    Anybody got a spare HTS code they can send?

    Thanks! I gotta give AJs credit as well, as they were willing to work with me to cancel and fully refund the order. Feel really bad for the guys, they've got a great store set up and got absolutely screwed by their wholesaler (kinda like how stores are getting the shaft from distribution).

    That said, I've now got Optimus and Sixshot is on the way. Meanwhile, there's another Prime at Eagan Walmart....surprisingly absent thus far has been Megatron.

    Is the Megatron mold more popular? Or is it people who already have Gen Blitzwing buying Megatron and skipping Prime now that we know Octane is coming?

    ^ I've seen both Prime and Megs plenty of times(starting to shelfwarm just a bit) at both Target and Walmart so I don't see one being sold more often than the other. It could be that Megs don't get as many releases as Prime in general so in certain areas he may get bought up more.

    I've seen both multiple times and I hardly look anymore...

    I did order Sixshot thanks to OpFan's quote post and k7's reply in the deals thread, though. $38 and change was reasonable enough to bite. I miss the days of $25-32 leaders shipped...of course you had to be patient enough to wait for it, but I'd probably have the patience now.

    Heads up, if someone has Weirdwolf/Wolfwire deluxe that doesn't have the back panel cracking issues, please PM me; or if anyone knows if the takara release is safe from those issues that would be cool too.

    Okay, so I get the complaints people have about the stickers on the latest Voyager wave. They look slick, but they feel like they're on the verge of coming off at any second.

    That said, love Titans Prime. If you're holding out for Octane you're in a for a treat because it's a fun mold.

    The decals falling off could be the residues from molding venting out of the plastics... Lifts the glue...or they didn't wipe down the figure before installing them.. either is very possible.

    Or, as in the case of my Megatron, they applied the stickers overlapping his wing joints, so they hang off the edges.

    I definitely am! Someone in the Titans Return Appreciation thread sketched up a retool of this mold into Rodimus Prime and, I gotta say, it looked damn good and I can definitely see the possibility of a great Rodimus out of this mold.

    I'm still guessing Rodimus from Springer. But I'll have to go check the thread.

    Back in MN, finally. Minnetonka TRU has Getaway, two Triggerhappies, two Hot Rods (tempting), and an even dozen each of Galvatrons and Blasters. What is this HTS code that you folks speak of?

    Oh, and apparently Bludgeon is an Autobot named Blastwave for RID? 0.o

    Nah, I meant an updated G1 Springer would make a pretty decent Rodimus Winnebago with a few minor alterations.

    Sandstorm would more likely get someone like Blue Bacchus since Hasbro apparently is dipping their toes in Victory.

    Ah, okay. I wouldn't be interested in either figure if it were just a G1 aesthetic. T30 Springer is basically perfect for me and I can't imagine anything ever replacing him!

    Ended up buying a Twinferno today cause I wasn't initially sure if I wanted him. Is there are proper why to peg his legs in in monster mode?
