    Nothing exciting at the Burnsville Target or TRU yesterday, or the Eagan Target. Wave one as far as the eye could see!

    Can someone explain why Wei Jiang Commander costs way over twice what Wei Jiang Rendersora costs, when they're both upsized Voyagers?

    The Wei Jiang Commander is waaay more than a simple upsized voyager.... besides the diecast, and extra attachments, it's almost completely re-engineered.

    Midway Target still has that same TR Optimus, Megs, and Skyshadow. Kinda surprised. 2x TR Broadsides and seventy billion movie Grimlocks.

    I need me a TLK Nitro Zeus. Bought a loose Thunderwing titan master from whatever that set was called and I need to get him a body!

    TRU isn doing $5 off any TF purchase $25 or more. BVille has TR Megs/Optimus otherwise notta.

    PREEMPTIVE NOTICE: If PotP's goes the way some of the rumors have been suggesting I'll likely be in line for another mini-purge.

    Just in time for Frankiecon V: The Awfrankening

    So I just watched Transformers: The Last Knight. Alone.

    I don't know how to feel. I was really hyped up about it, despite all the negativity. After a rough last couple weeks, I was really (naively) hoping that it would be a life-changing film. It wasn't as great as I'd hyped it up to be and now I'm just a little more confused about everything. Looking at the silver lining, the soundtrack was pretty good and the visuals were breathtaking... probably the best looking film I've ever seen. The attention to detail was astonishing, like propeller blades churning clouds and the like. Just wish it could've been... a little more.

    To be honest, I still enjoyed it. Just not as much as I was hoping I would.

    Spotted the Wingblade wave of Titans returns deluxes at Herogangu in Den Den Town, Osaka. They look pretty cool but not worth ¥4500 when they have get to show up in the states.

    Dang... Looks like you could almost transform it like the real deal. o_O 

    Has anyone bought Fanstoys version of a MP Seaspray here? I'm just curious as I'd like an MP Seaspray, but something about theirs doesn't look right for me. Probably the lack of chubbiness...

    I just got mine today. Transformation is a bit too fiddly but he looks the part, if you don't mind a slim Seaspray.

    <------- I love how Spindrift's bio card labels the hovercraft mode as "dino mode" :D

    Got in from CA last night. Fun wedding, but just as much of a desolate TF wasteland as here! I thought I saw a Sqweeks, but when I took off my sunglasses and put on my real glasses and got closer... it was just a Slash. ;_;

    Unless you're gonna scour ebay, you'll prolly be waiting a few months. Wave 2 is just now showing up, and he's wave 3...

    Today is the first time I've ever thought "I NEED TO GO TO THE HALLMARK STORE"

    *unending profanity*
    well, on the other hand, if it is showing up en masse now (which... I doubt), getting it 3 months before everyone else does is worth the $50 extra I paid.

    In other news, My Trypticon just shipped, but it'll prolly take a month to get to me since I went Smart Post. (It was the difference between $17 shipping and $4 shipping...) at least Cloudraker and Wingspan will be waiting for me at work today! :D

    Also, last call for the Voyager Megs I grabbed from WM a few weeks back - $27. I'll be returning it later this week to either Hidden or Bloomington WM if I don't have any takers.

    I spent $110 for a CW Liokaiser from Taiwan because I didn't want to screw around waiting for EE's preorders and didn't know at the time Amazon would get them and sell them for $80 at some point.

    But if you want a thing, that's the only option to get the thing. You never know what will or won't sell out. Or what will get restocked.

    Like, I always suspected CW Sky Lynx would come with Onslaught. But I could've just as easily wound up having to pay $32 for a standalone one from BBTS and missing out entirely on Onslaught had Hasbro packed Scattorshot for Wave 6 instead.

    I hear ya. I don't really have any regrets about it. And hey, now I have both autobot clones! Cloudraker's pretty great. Wingspan is good as well, but they could have done more with his arms/bird claws. Also, you can't have titan masters in head mode hanging from his crotch like you can with the autobot clones. Best part about getting these guys: now I don't have to hit up walgreens. :D 

    (I'm still trying to find a way to combine the clones....)
