    The grey is a big part of his look and what makes him stand out. It's not your traditional silver toned grey that we are used to. It's a warmer shade that I feel goes great with this Prime. It's very close to how the original toy looked. And the color red on him is great too, very different from Ginrai. The only drawbacks on PMOP are the omission of the mold detailing that Ginrai has. The arms, and feet being the primary letdowns. But otherwise I think they are each great figures in their own way. With PMOP edging him out by being closer to the original toy we all had in the 80's.

    It's not UK based but shipping shouldn't be terrible to the UK.

    That's interesting to note , didn't know it was originally that grey tone . Wasn't alive yet to own the 88's mold, only watched reruns of masterforce and rewatched recently , so ginrai edges pmop out for me due to closer anime accuracy. Thanks though , didn't wiki check it till now but yeah I see how that grey is more of a tribute to the original toy rather than some weird decision on their part .

    It's really just Slugslinger I need. Aaaaand he won't be turning up until December when the Takara Legends version comes out. Metalhawk, Pounce and Thunderwing should be arriving early September. There'll be Ultra Magnus and Arcee and presumably Scorponok (with Magnificus I'm still guessing). I'll get the Takara Legends Blitzwing at some point early 2018 and then that'll be it for Titans Return. What a ride it's been!

    Bad lads!

    I've said it before, but it bears repeating; Titans Return has been a gift to the Decepticon ranks!

    I'm missing 6/7 of Wave 5 and Slugslinger. I can't wait till he also hits stores in California but it'll take a while till it hits my area of San Jose except maybe Walmarts.

    I bet if you made a trip up to San Francisco you'd have better luck finding newer stuff. Bigger markets tend to get stuff more regularly.

    I've actually never been to retailers up in San Francisco before. But the only reason I'd go is if my parents wanna go for like a little trip with the family. Otherwise, I can't even drive. They're really being overprotective of me.

    Love this line but man has it been nuts trying to get these figures other then online. CW I bought 90% at stores, I have only bought 2 TR at store. Octone and Blitzwing at Target. Great figures though.

    So you manage to find two of the hardest to find toys in the line? I can hook you up with a fleet of Broadsides' just from one store...

    Hardest? It feels like Wave 2 Decepticon deluxes and Wave 4 titan masters were the worst to find.
    I only saw those once or twice and they were GONE. Meanwhile you can't throw a stone and not hit a Target that doesn't have one of every Wave 3 and 4 deluxe figures. And Broadside is such lousy shelf warmer that it's the only Titans Retirn figure I've seen them put on clearance.
