    Just pay the extra few bucks and get good shipping and not rely on the $4 shipping.

    I just got my $128 Trypticon from HTS yesterday. That took a long time to get here but happy he is here. Box is heavy. I like heavy boxes.

    Let's see...

    Scorn, Dragonstorm, Overlord, Arcee, and Grotusque.

    ...yeah, I'm spent.

    On the other hand, basically all those figures are awesome, so.... worth it.

    Seriously, even with the wonky arms, I think Grotusque just looks fantastic.

    Aye, both Slugslinger and Grotesque for me today, only things left are the Clones, Ramhorn, and what ever that Wreckgar turns out to be.

    It's the colors. I can't speak for everyone, but they're not like anything I've got on my shelves already. Will really pop.

    Head sculpt on beast mode, bot mode, and Scorponok are also super solid. He just looks great.

    Also, even though they're not crazy new designs, I'm digging the Terrorcon pics.

    So we have to be on the Hasbro online store to luck out on the last Monsterbot, Grotesque? Ugh. Hopefully they'll have a lot, but not holding out hope.

    I saw those Cyberverse things at a Walgreens near me today while looking for the clones 2-pack. $16.99 for what looks like blown up versions of smaller TF figures? No thanks. At least include some weapons otherwise.
    Also, saw they had a lot of the Marvel Legends exclusives still including the Invisible Woman, though no Human Torch yet.

    Just ramhorn and whatever Wreckgar will be for me! It feels good to be getting towards the end, especially since I didn't go hard on TLK or CW due to repaint fatigue. That's one of the cool things about TR for me (but not my pocketbook). Somehow, the repaints and retools have been enough to keep me interested. I mean, Misfire and Slugslinger are basically the same figure, but they're both great! Heck, even Scourge and Windblade share elements, but they're both a ton of fun. I just hope they can keep the train rolling on that. The little Primetenders or whatever they are seem like a neat way to mix powermaster/targetmaster gimmicks, and as long as Volcanion is solid (which he definitely looked better today), I'm psyched. The terrorcons look killer, too (Rippersnapper is the first TF I ever owned, and I still have my beat-to-hell one, as well as one on a complete G1 Abominus, a japanese one in box without even decals applied yet, so I have a soft spot there).

    It was up for a while, so I think the stock is prolly fairly deep and we'll see more.
    Also, as far as the Walgreens guys, yeah, def. overpriced, but we're totally not the intended target. They are fun, but they'd be a lot more fun for little kids.

    I also finally got my Grimlock M:TG card. Psyched to make a (technically illegal) vehicle/dinosaur deck. XD

    Aye, I picked up the Jetfire because it looked to be one of the better toys from the line and I needed it for the shelf.

    Overlord arrived today. Disappointed him and Sky Shadow will likely be the only figures using the duocon connectors. Lots of potential being left on the table there.

    Got my Overlord on Thursday. I was a bit disappointed in it at first, but it's grown on me. Over hyped a bit I think.

    Nothing at Burnsville Target last night.

    Got my Overlord on Thursday too. He's nice, only real issue I have with him is the right leg doesn't fully lock in place for robot mode. It looked like they just cut off on the tabs completely on the inside of the thigh. Thankfully it wasn't a floppy mess plus tightening the thigh's screws and adding future further improved it.

    I've heard of Targhetto and Secret Target but never Butt Target...

    Bville TRU still has a few MPM Prime, an Infernocus and the wave 2 Crash Combiners minus Shocknado.
