    I've heard a lot of speculation about the botshots and the game aspect so I thought I'd give a picture of the back and the general idea behind it.
    [​IMG]
    Each bot has a spinner in his chest with 3 faces. A fist power, a blaster power, and a melee weapon power. You spin these around, choosing which face you want to appear. You then crash the figures into each other where they pop up into bot mode. Fist beats melee, melee beats blaster, blaster beats fist. In case both threw a particular one, the highest power number wins.

    Bot Shots are awesome!

    But please explain to me the logic behind fist beating melee.

    Am I crazy? Were Cyberverse Legions 6 bucks before? I know they have a blaster now, but I thought they really hit a ~$5 sweet spot.

    That'll be the TRU mark-up. Just like they sell Deluxes for fifteen bucks rather than twelve.

    What legion figures were released? All that's really visible is the Vehicon.

    Wow TRU is really on the ball this time around with new Transformers toys. I'm glad since in the past it was Walmart who received their shipments first.

    Maybe TRU decided to bet big on TF Prime RiD while walmart decided to stick with DOTM stuff?

    Oooooo....those Bot Shot things look like they could be a great distraction at work. Didn't realize they were for a game. I might have to pick up a couple after all. :D

    I got the voyagers last week. The legion lineup is Vehicon, Arcee, Ratchet, Cliffjumper, and BB.

    one of the reasons we're getting them is back when I worked nights on Christmas week, I made sure every box of Transformers we had got out onto the shelves. This helped their sales and made the computer think we have none left in stock. As such, we're on the first lists to get restocked when stuff comes in.

    Prior planning, boys. ;)
