    They've been out at Big Lots for awhile now! I may pick up that Backstop too. I don't know why though.

    I think they've been out for a month or more. Mine has 5 full case sets of them and 4 case sets of the Minicons filling the top shelf. What surprised me more is seeing they had DOTM toys there.

    Waitwaitwait, do they have the Dinobot Minicon exclusives too? If so, what was the price on them? I've got a Big Lots in town, and I will most definitely be checking this out if so. I wanted those Minicons, but did not want to pay $20 on BBTS for 'em.

    That would be pretty strange that people would buy up Backstop and not the other two. :lol

    That's not strange... the others are not new decos while Backstop is.

    Well... I guess Wreckloose's blue jungle planet key is new... though Backstop has it too.

    Ya Backstop is a redeco and the other two are rereleases. I'm going to my local Big Lots today to see what they have. I'm liking that Backstop the more i look at it. My Big Lots is generally up to speed with the stuff Big Lots actually gets so ill post what I see there in this thread.

    Mine just has the 4 other new Minicon Repaints for now.

    I thought that people didn't like Backstop as much compared to the other two molds. :sly:  Yay for Backstop Love I guess then haha.

    It's that Backstop is not just a straight rerelease like the others. He's a repaint and a good looking one to me. I believe this is the third or fourth rerelease of Undermine and maybe the second of Wreckloose. So if anyone of the three is gonna get love it will be Backstop. Haha plus its only $8.80.

    I'm going by kids who buy them and I would think the other two look cooler to a kid. Not going by collector.

    I found and got the Scouts and mini-cons at my local Big Lots this week.

    Backstop is definitely a repaint and Undermine is definitely a straight repack.

    However, after inspecting Wreckloose a little bit closer, he seems to have a darker paint scheme than the Cybertron version. The green and orange looker darker to me.

    Aren't these figures the exact same toy that BigLots! has had in stock for the last 5 years in one deco or another? Any time I see Backstop's mold the first thing I think is "Biglots!".

    As for the minicons? Those are nice. Seems strange that BigLots! would lock in a worthwhile "exclusive" after all these years of stocking redecos of crap molds and KO's.

    I saw these maybe a month ago. I didn't think the price on those (and any other TFs Big Lots have) is worth it. Seems a bit much for a Basic.

    You'd be right. He reminds me of a Happy Meal toy for all the wrong reasons. :lol 

    Still, it's a nice deco, even though I don't care for the figure itself that much.
