    So glad to see that Siege is seeing a release at retail stores. I'm definitely in for Flywheels.

    It's been so long since I bought a TF from a brick and mortar store. I think it may have been TR Breakaway a couple of years ago from TRU!

    Don't know if this has been mentioned yet but there's a new Bumblebee movie kids magazine that comes with a little Bumblebee figure. He looks pretty good and comes with attachable door wings and a blaster. Screen accuracy is decent for what it is. He'd look really good all painted up.

    Those that are enjoying the quirkiness of botbots, my local corner one stop store has the blind packed individual bots for 2.99
    They were next to the scratch cards at the till

    I love how they just blatantly refer to him as Flywheels too.

    I assume that's an artifact of Hasbro using the G1 names for all characters on super-early solicatations before going through the process of either clearing the trademarks or picking substitute names. Sometimes the early names appear in early or even final online listings, sometimes they're later adjusted to the actual toy's names while other times they remain as they are. Basically, it's like how some lines use code names for toys that still appear in online listings, except here the code names are the original G1 names.

    Forbidden Planet is also still calling the Titans Return figure "Octane", not "Octone".

    Breakway and Twinferno were called "Getaway" and "Doublecross" on their color guides, and I'm certain there were some retailers that used those names in initial listings.

    I imagine it's just at the arms as I'm not going to open it up, looking to sell it.

    Found a Bumblebee Movie Easter egg in Home Bargains for 99p.

    Also, if anyone was still holding off buying that big Havex Machines Battleship in HB, the price has now dropped a further tenner to £14.99. Considering you get the boat mech (individual mechs are £4.99 in HB) with it that's a pretty neat bargain.
