    Yuppers. Tying yourself to one entity is bound to lead to disappointment, or blind devotion for it, neither of which is a healthy option

    Just something that came to mind because of those unreleased figures from Hasbro.

    But still, I'm not going to lose sleep over it.

    Prime Breakdown... The one figure I wanted to get to go with FE Bulkhead, PRiD Wheeljack and PRiD Knock Out. I would but those ports really hurt the figure for me. I just had bad experiences with ports.

    Can deluxe Hot Rod mount AOE Lockdown's gun on its roof? I plan on getting movie the best Lockdown since my AOE Lockdown broke in half and donating the gun to Hot Rod.

    Also for those who want a cool movie figure, Incinerator from TF1 is awesome.

    Haven't found a Hot Rod yet, but just going off pics, it doesn't look like it. Lockdown has a distinctive pair of angled slots for his gun, which I'm not seeing anywhere on Hot Rod. though I could be wrong

    It's worth noting that the new "rifle" that MB Lockdown has is actually his sword, in case that matters to you.

    And yeah, I've always wanted an Incinerator myself, but I always end up passing him for another figure I'm prioritizing whenever I see him for a good price. Hopefully I'll change that soon.

    Has anyone actually found a Hot Rod in Walmart in the US? I've heard no sightings of it whatsoever.

    Did anyone ever find out why the DOTM wreckers weren't all released with a single aesthetic (weaponized or regular)? It bothers me how I can have a KO Leadfoot standing with them and the only one that looks out of place is Roadbuster.

    I've heard it was some kind of deal with NASCAR. Each of the characters had to get a "regular" treatment and HasTak chose to spread it across the size classes.

    Don't worry, be on the lookout from TF DreamFactory to get your weaponized Roadbuster
    Two-packed with Topspin, but whether or not its worth the Topspin is up to you. It's definitely a better sculpt than the regular mainline release, but how much is debatable

    Anyone looking for Hot Rod, AmazonJP has him up for preorder releasing on Saturday, for around $31.50 shipped to the US. Make sure you set it to pay in Yen, their US currency converter charges a little bit. And make sure your credit card doesn't have a foreign transaction fee.

    Edit: Went back and reordered TT MPM-04, TLK Bee, and TLK Hot Rod altogether to get cheaper shipping. MPM04 is still at the lowest price it has been on AmazonJP. I really do hope it drops a little more in these last few days like MPM Bee did.

    Always bothered me too, but luckily Roadbuster has some cool options that basically enable a fan mode that fits in with the other two. I can't show you cause I sold my Wreckers earlier this year, but if you deploy the rear missile launchers, untab and bring up the hood section, and attach the Mechtech gun to the top it fits in nicely with the other two.

    I haven't been keeping up lately—where was it ever confirmed that those leaked movie toys were cancelled? Just because they weren't shown at Hascon doesn't mean anything. Or is it the case that Jazz and Lockdown just ended up being those newly listed repaints instead of new molds?
