    Found: Gravitybots Wave 3

    I found them at the TRU in Hagerstown, MD. Someone suggested it was a first, so I thought I'd let anyone know that was interested. The only new figure in the wave was Skids, so I got him.

    Bolt Bumblebee is supposed to be in this wave too, so you probably missed him.

    it would be great if they could make one of the ice cream truck and it would be skids face when you put it one way and then turn it around and it could be mudflap's lol


    I need to get Skids to go with Mudflap, I love these Gravity bots!...wish they were a little cheaper though...

    What I meant was the only new MOLD was Skids. I passed on Bolt BB.

    Looks like it's time to get a Gravity bot. Skids looks fantastic.

    They all work the same way, but I have a 3-year-old and they're just his speed. I think the mechanism is pretty clever, even if it is the same thing over and over. So far I have all the characters that have come out. (But I'm passing on the recolors)

    Ebay:
    Just bought BB so I could see how they work. Seems significantly overpriced for what you get, but a neat idea.

    I'd like to see voyager-size toys with this gimmick, with multiple and more intricate flip/spin parts.

    All I've seen around my area lately is just Sideswipe and Mudflap. Hopefully Skids and Bumblebee will show up soon. I think I want Skids cause I love his green color.
