The Village People apparently.....
He came a lot later than I was expecting, but damn Sky Shadow is a great figure. I think I might like him even more than Overlord. I like how much more evil his jet mode looks.
Got them out of package today!
Got another good haul from my local Toy-Zilla today.
They had WFC Siege Prime & Megatron. I had to haggle because the owner wanted $40 dollars each. I got them to go down to $35, and with the $10 loyalty discount I earned from my last couple of transactions, that means I got them for the correct $30, right? Riiiiiiiight? Yeah...
Anyway, I also scored a TRU Exclusive MP Prowl. Without my asking, the worker opened it up, I guess to check if it was all there and all right. Nooooo, the mint condition! He volunteered to knock a few bucks off for breaking the factory seal.
And then there's these 2 lovlies;
Beast Wars Neo Saberback
I had my eye on this guy the last couple of times I visited, even though I had no idea who or what it was, since I can't read the Japanese packaging, and I never really bothered watching Energon. Then a couple of days ago I happened to catch an old review of Baltmatrix for Energon Bulkhead, and that convinced me to go ahead and get this guy. I'm totally gonna do that chicken walker chopper gerwalk mode that he showed off.
The final thing I got was actually something I bought back that I almost immediately regretted trading in the last time, Classics Rodimus. That was one of the first CHUGs I got way back when soon after discovering the line after spying Bumblebee with his jetski/jetpack, one day at Target. He just happened to be sitting on top of a reissued G1 Trypticon that they had. It was still in the same baggy with my labeling on it. I'm so sorry buddy, I'll never let you go again. *my preciouuuuuuus*
One other thing I wanted to get but didn't, was a loose Galaxy Force Metroplex. He was missing his little minicon buddy and his cyber key, which I could live without (I could just use a flathead screwdriver or butter knife to transform the saw), but he was also missing his blue ear spokes. D'oh! That ruins the whole silhouette, a dealbreaker for me. He tried to get me to buy it anyway for just $15, but eh... that's like getting an OP without his ear spokes, or a Megatron without a fusion cannon. No thanks.
And finally, there was a splayed open shipping box full of the 3P Planet X FoC game Dinobots. But they weren't processed yet and so not ready for sale. Next time maybe...
Look at the deal I found at my local used book store:
Please note the fantastic prices I got these for. I nearly choked...

I was at Forbidden Planet in NYC today and I was really tempted to buy this Jetfire figure.
I saw and bought War for Cybertron Siege Optimus Prime and Megatron at Forbidden Planet in Manhattan today.
@DaveWire: I also saw that particular Robotech Jetfire inspired figure, but didn't see a price.
Got online to order socks. Ended up with Masterpiece Sleep Mode Convoy new in box.
The new generations socks look good wonder what they turn into
POTP Micronus Prime\Cloudburst

This joke might be offensive. Writing it just to be safe
