    Repaints should be free, obviously!

    BTW, don't start shedding tears when six months have passed, these are no longer on shelves and you finally get the urge to pick a set up.

    Based on all the photos getting posted I'm getting a feeling we're on the verge of Target Buzzworthy Restock Avalanche...

    Even at what we typically pay circa 19 bucks for deluxes and around $30 for voyagers this is still some savings. Not bad. I hope I can find one in my area. Wal-Marts are plentiful around here but only 3 Targets within an hour plus in any direction.

    Hell, without repaints shit would start costing more because they'd be churning through tooling/mold changes way faster.

    Like, I laugh at the 30 or so Seekers we've gotten in WfC but that mold is probably turning enough profit to help fund the one offs like Dealer, Springer, Apeface, and Snapdragon.

    Yay this is now 2 items I need to hunt for at Targets and be extra disappointed in not finding. Or wait for online to come at 9am when it does drop and the listing never shows in search for me.


    What happen to the Twrecks? I wasn't really interested in him, but I don't see him on the website anymore either.

    Are there pics of Nemesis Primal? That alone is making me consider the set (don't have any of the others so I wouldn't mind snagging the set for the set anyway). I'm curious if he's actually a black repaint or not. Seems like the closest we'll get to RM Black Beast Convoy even though they look nothing alike.

    He's not currently available for shipping but if he's nearby, you can pick it up at any Target that has stock.

    He's still there, but for whatever reason it doesn't seem like he comes up whenever you do a search for him.

    Use Google. Someone gave me the same advice about Amazon since their search also sucks at finding what you actually want.

    I really want that Fangry.

    I really have zero need for the rest.

    I'm leaning toward getting it for the Fangry alone but I dislike it.

    -ZacWilliam, it's gonna depend on the weight of my wallet when/if I see the set.

    Repaints don't cost less than their base use, a deluxe is a deluxe and a voyager is a voyager regardless of how many times the molds get used. I'll somewhat agree with you on the Netflix Bee, however Buzzworthy is a repaint/repack line that is not looking to incur extra costs and there is an licensing fee associated with the Netflix mold.

    Agreed, overall it's honestly not a bad price for what is in the pack.

    That purple optimus primal looks stupid as f*ck. Yet for some reason I want it.  I don\'t know why but I want it.

    Fantastic.



    -Tony Lucas, I can't imagine it's going to be easy to come across that Fangry in the wild. As it stands I'm going to have to hope that my daughter is on board with the BW stuff that's in there as I have no intention of collecting any.

    The saucy is where I need to chase down an extra Cliffjumper head so I can make Blow-out. They scratch a Diaclone/Microchange itch in the worst way possible.

    I'd really like to think that somewhere some factory worker could nab the extra heads that are produced from the frames and flip them on ebay. That would have made life SO much easier for me and saved a lot of customization time.

    Man, that would be great if someone would make a yellow Cliff head… I’d love to have Blow-Out!

    Oh, you just have to find the factory worker that sells stolen figures to the youtube reviewers. They obviously have no qualms removing product from the line and making some pocket money. If they are sure there's profit to be made, I'm sure some spare heads will mysteriously not get put in the plastic recycling bins...

    I forgot Fangry was used for Wilder in Japan; just as I packed away my Ginrai for space. Hopefully other Headmaster Jr's happen as well although it'll be annoying if they're all in giftsets (but oh well). Part of me wonders if Takara (or even Hasbro) pulls their Selects magic and retools T30 Nightbeat or some mold into a head/titanmaster compatible toy (I know 3p or at least customizers did it but I'd be stoked for that to be an official thing).
    Ooo thankyou. Pretty much sold on the set then.
