    Hmmmm...I was hoping that it would be a while longer before the released them, as I plan on getting a Mudflap to turn into Scrapper. I might just have to either wait and buy one off of a fellow board member, or wait and use a different mold for him.

    Well, you know I sold my mudflap not too long ago, and figured this would be a good way to get him back. plus I need an extra to steal the crane mechanism off for a future project. But I can't do this yet :(

    I almost want Mudflap, but I dont have the money to blow on it. Don't want Inferno at all. Hell, I still can't afford Jetstorm and Wingblade either, and I want them even more.

    I am going to probably get Mudflap since he is a decepticon and that's the kind of Transformers that I collect.

    (To let you know something, during the week [ok...actually Mon - Thurs] of 6-23 & 6-30, I will be working at TRU as a Job trial and I "may" get a job there at the Colerain TRU in Ohio so perhaps I could see if they pop up around there.)

    I was shocked to find them at this specific store, actually. This store is pretty good with stocking new items when they have the room. However, the Transformers area was still stocked full of the exclusive Ultras and about a dozen or so Movie Thundercrackers. Given the amount of Thundercrackers on the shelves (in addition to some Rescue Ratchets), I figured I wouldn't see them there first.

    Given that Hasbro said late May/early June for these exclusives, I'm surprised we didn't see them until now. The date of the first sighting is usually early on or before the tentative date. This release was more towards the tail end.

    Guess I'll be heading to TRU this weekend. Mine's usually pretty good about getting their exclusives in and all so I should be able to find them this week. Well, just Inferno, because I really don't care for the Mudflap mold and I like it even less in the bright yellow for some reason. Inferno... he's hot... and I love the Red Alert mold too. Inferno rocks and will be a nice addition to my A/E/C Autobot forces.

    Mudflap's paint job actually like suprisingly nice in person. If passing it up has more to do with the mold, definately pass. If it's more of an issue with the color selection, you'll like it a little more in person. Inferno too is even nicer in person. The brown in the robot mode really is striking and the silver detailing is a nice touch.
