    So on the topic of a Mega Construx Transformer / transforming figure: I think comparing the Halo Mega Bloks/Construx Halo Wars 1 Cyclops and Halo Wars 2 Cyclops builds really speaks to how Mega WOULD have done a figure, and now the lengths they are willing to go for accuracy / functionality. "Mark II" is about deluxe sized and while the plating pops off super easily just cause it is only a one-sided brick connection the peg swivels and clip hinges hold up well enough to actually have a nicely articulated figure. So if it were to happen tomorrow I doubt it would transform well without entire vehicle bits flying across the room, but in 1/2 years time, maybe.

    As someone who, as I said in a listener question a while back, gave up on IDW because of the crossover stuff, it was so refreshing to read Requiem. It felt like a story written for people like me who got disenfranchised. And it tied up Verity's story beautifully.

    Here's the link to the Prince Adam order page. They're going to produce as many as are ordered, but they're only taking orders until the 22nd. The figure won't ship until October, though.

    Re: the crime of splitting Battletrap.

    Yeah north Texas has some kind of psychopath roaming the stores.

    Three. Three Battletraps split up. This is the second time I’ve found a split.

    I had to pause the episode to watch that GoBots episode. Wow, you’re 100% right there!
    Also, Blot blew me away. That’s an amazing figure! I wasn’t expecting that. He’s so good.

    Just listened. If you guys didn’t get the Kre-o microchangers, they are amazing. I have Grimlock and Megatron and love them. Need to go get Shockwave too

    Plus, I\'ve heard SS Bumblebee has had a running change that fixes some of the design flaws.
