    TCP is saying the original will have a restock. At least according to their website.

    It had a matte, dark charcoal finish to it. I don't know know if they changed the material used for this one, but it looked painted to me.

    I only spent maybe a minute looking at it because I seriously thought someone had just spray-bombed Apocalypse with some matte gray paint and then dry brushed some silver to pop out the details. It looked good, but Iron Factory's legends class Bruticus was calling me from a few feet away.

    Given its smaller scale, it doesn't really belong on a shelf with the other PX figures, except for Genesis and Gammadim. I can imagine the Battle Damaged version of Apocalypse and Gammadim making a nice shelf of their own.

    Apocalypse and Gammadim are still the two favorite figures of my collection. I have my nitpicks, but they are still amazing figures that I get a ton of value out of. So I just can't pass on these battle-damaged versions. They really look good, perhaps better than the originals.

    Hmmm. Battle-Damaged Trypticon is best-selling 3P figure at BBTS:

    Considering that the head is completely hidden in that mode, that is an interesting statement.

    The entire front of the ship is modeled on the dinosaur head, as per the FOC storyline and animation model. So with that in mind I'm seeing a big weird beast thing rather than a spaceship.

    I'm not seeing the actual robot mode head.

    Battle-Damaged Trypticon is still the best-selling 3P figure at BBTS after 2 weeks out.

    I wonder how that's calculated. If you take off the 3rd party filter and sort by bestselling, you get Thrilling 30 Deluxe Wave 11 Case of 8 as the top of the list. That's without filtering by Transformers.

    I always assumed that "best selling" meant "help us empty these shelves"?
