    It's a pretty crappy KO. I painted it myself. Shipping from sir toys was expensive, the toy it self wasn't so much. I want to think the whole thing might have cost me around $70, maybe worse- I forget. That was the first time I used Sirtoys. Ever since when ever I order I do big orders. The toys are cheap, but the shipping is awful. Unfortunately that KO is probably long gone- they never seem to last or show up in the aftermarket much.

    I'd be all in if they made all the others that size

    I've got a decent sized Straffe (swoop) to go with my slightly smaller Grimlock (14"). I'm really, really hoping they'll upsize the new Scorn so I can add him as well. I'd be in heaven if they did Slag/Slug to finish it out, but since they didn't last time and it's the same toy I'm not holding my breath.

    Is TLK Hounds vehicle mode a Mercedes?

    I noticed the symbol on his hood.

    I wonder if the AOE guns can still fit in TLK Hound. I love how AOE Hound has all those guns, but I don't really like AOE Hound figure that much because it's not really accurate. TLK Hound looks really good, sadly he only has 4 guns. So I wonder if we can just attach the AOE Hound guns to TLK Hound.

    I saw some pictures on Facebook from Daim Choc. I don't know if they can attach to vehicle mode but he can hold all of the AOE Hound weapons in bot mode.

    That's all I want.

    If I can find a picture of it, then I will buy one on ebay.

    Edit: You do mean, storage in Robot mode, right? Or do you just mean he can hold them in his hands?

    That's what I was hoping for. Now if I can find a picture for example.

    I realized last night that Berserker's Decepticon badge is purple. And Barricade's forehead. BSurely they're not the first purple logos to slip into the movie line, but there can't be that many, is there?

    I guess traditionally in other TF lore, it's established that Megatron's Con insignia is purple (think G1, Animated, and Prime), so it seems to be more for a visual nod. Off the top of my head, I can't recall any TF Movie figs with purple badges (TF07 Dropkick is cheating :p ), but TF07 Barricade's deluxe was silver on a purple background. Your question does have me thinking where the new TLK Megatron figures will have his insignia, and what color it'll be in. Prob silver

    I think MPM-1 Starscream's Decepticon symbol on his forehead is also purple.

    Is it just me or does anyone else feel like the TLK premier edition toys are getting more and more overpriced?

    I saw Deluxe Barricade, Berserker and Bumblebee at a nearby department store and they all looks pretty cool (Yes, even the AOE Bumblebee repaint), but the 23 USD price tag is just too hard for me swallow since I still has more figures I want. Should I just buy one of them or wait for a discount?

    Definitely wait. Look online to see what the real retail price is & judge from there.

    Just take a few minutes to check. The majority of the stores in my region has identical price for the TLK deluxe figures. Looks like I need to wait.

    Its not just you, around here TKL deluxes are going for $20-$22 a pop, and considering they aren't exactly high on the end of quality (At least IMO), I say you would be better off waiting a month or two for the prices to drop as more figures fill the shelves in preparation for the movie. Personally I'm passing on this toyline, I was hoping that with the awesome TR toyline the movie toys would improve over the previous AOE stuff, but alas we are getting pretty much the same quality, literally in some cases as quite a few figures are repaints. I'm focusing on collecting older movie toys, which I feel are a better use of my money, not to sound elitist.

    What store was this, because I've only seen them at ~$20 at Target and TRU and ~$15 at Walmart?

    If you want to get them now I'd just go to Walmart and get them. They are regular deluxe class priced there.
