    I haven't seen wave 1 yet and wave 2 is out?

    Blades is the highlight of this wave, IMO. Totally rocks.

    Is Blades really that awesome? Looks like I'll have to go pick it up tomorrow.

    That is, if I don't see Blitzwing first.

    EDIT: Which toy is Blades a repaint of again?

    Interesting. I haven't seen any wave 1 figures from the Universe line yet. Then again, I haven't been to a Target in a while, lol. I'll hopefully get to one when I go get my books for this next semester. I'll be kinda close to one then anyways.

    Check the thread I started in the feedback forum. I'm very fond of it.

    It's a repaint of Cyb Evac. Only sexier. And not orange.

    Didn't think I'd buy these repaints but the packages look really great, very tempting

    What is it with Target and mangled boxes lately? Good thing I open my TFs.

    Anyway, I'll probably pick up Dropshot when I see him, but I'm not sure about Blades yet. I like the red coloring, but I may just wait for the Springer repaint later this year.

    I hear ya. I've only seen Universe Voyagers at Targets, and all of them have bad box conditions. I keep repaints sealed, so I won't buy them unless the box is in at least c8 on condition. I got lucky and found one Autobot Blaster with a good conditioned box.

    These are coming out way too fast. I want Blades but I can wait for him as he's not top priority.

    With Animated, Classics/Universe, Marvel Crossover, and SWTF there are way too many toys out there. I like Blades a lot (just wish they had done a military color repaint instead and call it Vortex) but need to save money for Blitzwing cuz I'll be getting two.
