Hm.....not what I expected.
That's all they do, WST Dinobots, so for sure it was going to be a repaint.
... want ...
Yeah, surprise surprise. Now I just want JustItToys to get back to making new molds of the WST Dinobots. Two more to go and no pre-orders or release date announced yet.
Are you going to TFcon this year man?
Indeed, I need my Sludge and Swoop dammit!!
So whos hooking me up with this and a Milne sketch?
I don't think so, I don't feel like spending $500 just to have the chance of maybe finding a $300 figure (Overlord, for example)...
Bro, are you talking about: $500 including the cost of travelling from Montreal to Toronto?
Also, I've got an overlord figure for sale, (I'm in Toronto). PM me with your e-mail if you want pics.
Because the cost of admission to Transformerscon is only like $20 bucks. It's sooooo worth it. I've been going since the convention started, and each year gets better and better for me... got some sweet alex milne sketches as well. But if you wanna get sketches, my advice is hit him up early man, tons of people want sketches.
Try posting in the cybertron.ca forums to see if you can hitch a ride from other guys that are coming from Montreal... just spoke to somebody who's coming from Winnipeg.
Maybe he's talking about Hotel and Food.
oh, and this fig should be pretty popular... I don't think you can get the g2 blue grimlock anymore... all sold out =)
It's exactly what I expected.
I missed the xmas grimlock though so I'm not that concerned about getting this. Wouldn't mind, but whatever.
This years con is gonna rock so hard
Bingo! I was actually expecting something more along the lines of a Canadian Slag, but I'm guessing the popularity of Santa Commander showed G2 repaints to be a far more popular idea.
Santa Commander needs company, so I hope I can pick one up. TFSource did sell the Prototype Snarl themselves, so perhaps they will do the same in this case as well.
Oh, and we still get to speculate on the colors! I'm thinking it'll be green, to distance itself from the Snarl and add more color variety.
Yeah, gas, hotel, food for 2 (wife would come with me), plus the toys... I don't mind the drive, I drove across Canada several times, but I'd rather save that money and buy SOC Gunbuster and SOC Ideon instead.
Wasn't the original WST Slag the canadian version?? mine is.
Oh, it could have been, I didn't pay enough attention to notice. I also don't have it anymore to check myself.
Either way, I definitely prefer any G2 repaint to such a minor repaint.
Ya, the WST Flamethrower is based off the Canadian Slag colors, red head, white legs etc: http://www.tfsource.com/Reissues/WST%20Grim-lock%20-%20Slaag/wst-grim-lock%20-%20sllag.htm
