    I've seen the whole Movie wave. I am impressed. The repaint on them look very good. The prices are too much for repaints though. There only a couple that I really want from this whole line so far.

    I was going through the posts of the new movie figures. I am guessing that 90% of this whole line is nothing but repaints? I was looking at the pix of the combiner Infernocus and saw that it is just a repaint/rebox of Abominus from the Transformers Prime box set. Granted it has a new head sculpt, but it is a repaint. Looks like I'm going to save a lot of money this year. lol

    Yeah, lots of repaints, which I don't mind, it makes it even easier to skip most of this line.

    My toys will be there, and i'll be there for a bit in the morning setting up.

    yup! glad you're helping me out.

    Walmart on Unser had some of the new RID figures (got Soundwave), most of the TLK deluxes and voyagers besides Barricade, and a few wave 1 TR figures.

    Haven't been to Toys R Us in quite awhile. There are reports that the Titans Returns voyagers are now 16.99, is that true?

    Coors and Paseo Target had two sets of Voyager Blitzwing and Octane. I grabbed both sets. One for me and one for Lumpy.

    I would check Paseo and i25 if you're looking for them.

    The other three locations in town are stocked pretty well with Galvatron, Alpha Trions and Astrotrains

    Really, wave 5 voyagers already??? The pics I've seen so far make them look like crap, how are they in hand? And again, anyone seen Perceptor or Quake? Been searching high and low...

    I've never thought these looked like crap. Hasbro finally gave us all six G1 Triple changers as voyagers. Blitzwing is very cool, but his stickers are already peeling on his wings. Octane... wow. He's outstanding. Both figures are leaps and bounds better than the Genetations Blitz and the Universe Tankor molds! I recommend!

    There's been no other retailer sightings of these figures outside of Walgreens. I got Quake at the Walgreens on Lomas and Carlisle. Grabbed Perceptor (and Kup) from The Chosen Prime.

    Well I may buy "Octone" but I was kinda dissatisfied with my purchase of Astrotrain. And If I buy Octane, I will have to buy blitzwing. However, the peel happy stickers look like junk to me and they are a turn-off but my crap comment only extended to Octane and blitzwing pics I've seen on the 'net, not the other autobot tri-changers. Of course I can ditch some of the stickers I don't like and go with paint or reprolabes or oceans...
    Anyway, quick question who are going to be in the wave 5 deluxes??

    Agreed on all counts, and while the stickers suck, I can fix them with Reprolabels or wait for the Takara versions and see how they look... But it's so damn cool to have all 6 Triple changers as voyagers. If I was a better photograph guy, I'd take a 3 vs 3 set of pictures... but I'm not...

    This whole voyager triple changer thing even has me looking at that white Leo Prime still, i don't really need it since I have the original, but all three modes look really cool with those colors... maybe if I can sell off my extra Grand Galvatron parts quick enough I'll pick him up...

    also, it's been awhile since our last meetup, will people be in town and available over Memorial Day weekend? I was thinking maybe Saturday or sunday evening. I don't remember what day our last meetup was...

    Also, today i got a Platinum edition Ultra Magnus with minimus ambus! I like him lots, but wish he had wrist swivel and ankle tilts.
