    Hi all, have a little "news" and wierdness.

    Stopped at walmart to look for MP Skywarp and found the new Walmart exclusive Super Tuner Throwdown. I didn't get it but I found the bottom of the box very odd. It has the Toys_R_Us exclusives advertised on it. G1 colored Hoist and Mixmaster. It says each sold separately and mixmaster is a deluxe and hoist is a voyager.

    Funny, though the sight of another Sideways stops that.

    I thought this had been spotted already? How the heck did it get on my "Buy it" list?

    Interesting little thing going on with that TRU product ad on the box. I wonder who's head might roll for that one?

    I know its probably just a misprint, but I would be happier if the G1 Mixmaster was sold individually, since I only want him and not interested in Hoist at all.

    this has to be pretty close to the lamest exclusive ever (or at least in recent memory) would it have killed them to AT LEAST do a palette swap on Sideways? (silver parts->red, red parts->black, black parts ->silver/grey)

    Ugh. If that was ANY OTHER COLORATION of Sideways I'd be all over this set. But it's the same original coloration, so I'll pass, even though Blowpipe/Pipes looks nice.

    But seriously, I've even have gone for another Swindle mold repaint, just not another Sideways! What, is Hasbro afraid that because Sideswipe kills Sidesways in the opening battle scene that the toys won't sell of Sideways?

    I have to say the only thing I like about this is Blowpipe. Everything else is just FAIL. The repackaged Sideways months after he's been warming the shelves, the misadvertising of the TRU exclusives, and I believe the price was $27? Back when the deluxes were $13, that wasn't TOO bad, but now that they're $10 its just overpriced deluxes.
