I was crazy enough to go toy hunting in the snow storm this afternoon. I found new (to me at least) Prime voyagers at Bloomington TRU. I bought Prime Ultra Magnus and left behind one Thundertron and one other Ultra Magnus. I would have gotten Thundertron too, but the 26.99 price tag really dissuaded me.

I've gotta say that after the disappointment of the new combaticons, it's a relief to get such a truly nice toy with Ultra Magnus. The robot mode is very nice, it avoids a lot of hollowness, and the sculpting is superb. I like the truck mode too. It's simple, but in an effective way. I wish he was a show character.

I was just really annoyed by him for some reason...I normally don't let toys do that.

Doesn't usually bother me, either. I think what does it with Bruticus is that he gives me so little hope for what's to come out of Hasbro's TFs. One of the main reasons I bought one was to at least give it a chance and see if maybe my fears were unfounded. After handling him and beholding just how rotten he is (to me) in every single aspect (sculpt, articulaton, engineering, materials, paint) and then seeing the recent reveal of the Critter Gitters...I have lost hope. And I'm usually that annoying guy in threads who tries to get everyone to see the positive things.

Very impressed by Mr. Jetwing - my first version of him! Dragon Prime repaint is okay too.....nice way to end the year. Also cracked open MP Grimlock over the weekend. Fantastic! Not sure why I waited this long...

You know, I'm actually okay with Bruticus, at least the SDCC version. And at $15 a pop for deluxes, $100 wasn't much more than $75. As long as you use Swindle as an arm and Blast-off as a leg, I think he looks decent. Hollow, yes, but the extra paint apps really help it.

As for Critter Gitters - I'm also totally unimpressed, although I still think Cyberverse is neat, and less of an investment.

Also: Are there any MP Primes still floating around in the wild? I'm thinking of picking up an extra.

God dammit. Grimlock and Blaster, two figures I actually want, now available.

What the fuck is going on?! Months and months and months of nothing when I have money, now a bunch of stuff when I don't and probably won't for a long time.

I'm so fucking done with this stupid hobby.
