    At Frankiecon there was someone selling a CW Silverbolt for a pretty low price. Does anyone around here have an inexpensive Bolt, Ironhide, and Prowl? I may be in the market.

    HUGE shoutout to Kham for helping out a fellow TF collector here as he meet up with me locally here to sell me an extra Misfire, Slugslinger, and Twin Twist.

    Thanks again for helping me out get these guys as the North Metro is a barren wasteland for new stuff. I transformed them all as soon as I got home. Fortunately having transformed their "mold mates" often, they were quick and painless. That pink on Misfire is really cool, too. LOL

    Now to just get Grotesque and I'm pretty much done with Titans Return, now bring on the Power of the Primes!

    It's surprisingly eye-catching for sure!

    Dang, no Cogman? He's the last guy I need from TLK.

    How would one even know if they're looking at the new Bee compared to Wave 1 beyond shelfmates?

    New mold. No goofy shuriken thingys is the big giveaway. Also, new bee's chest looks like the front of the car instead of the stylized thing old be looked like

    Also, Grotusque might be one of my favorite TLK molds. He's GREAT.

    I know we've already talked about this, but now that I've got Arcee in hand Hasbro has definitely done FunPun one better with these figures.

    Even if it's identical figure wise to what FP would have come up with, the individual packaging having dedicated artwork is a huge plus in terms of making this feel like a real set of exclusives. The "reveal" line art opening up to the big official tech spech art front and center makes it feel like a grand event.

    And the $24.99 price point? *kisses fingers*

    I hope this is a test run for a legit Hasbro version of the TFSS. And I'm not just saying that because it would mean next year's would be more PotP combiner figures.

    Seek these out if you haven't. They're excellent.

    An hour before closing I had Burnsville TRU pull a case of MPM-3 Bumblebee, so there should be still be 3 on the shelf in the morning if anyone is interested in those.

    As much as I like MPM Bumblebee, I feel like I would dump him quick in favor of a ROTF version. Best looking Camaro (besides the black 69 imo).

    To tell you the truth, I don't pay close enough attention and and haven't put in the time to really tell the difference between all the different BBs :lol  I still like old school 80s BB the best.

    I'll probably pass on this dude, but what are they asking for it? Like $80? Might be in large part due to the unpainted (or dark painted) rims, but something about this figure looks cheap.

    Rims are painted. To me, he feels like an MP figure. Heck, I'd say my Marlboor and Road Rage feel a lot cheaper than he does.

    I haven't seen it in person, only pics, so it probably looks and feels better in hand...but the rims look too dark for my likening. I hate dark/black rims in real life. Looks cheap to me...like no hub caps.
