TRU sells HA for $35 for example, not to mention price hike on exclusives.
Yea, I think (hope) that the other retailers have realized that the $11.99-$12.99 pricepoint didn't work as well as expected. Target has listed the new Generations at $9.99, but I have yet to see what Walmart is listing them at. I know that they were better prepared for the 2nd movie, but product just didn't seem to be moving as fast this time around and I think pricepoint had something to do with it.
Nice to see the exclusive 2-pack deluxes back at $20 at Target, and hopefully if they get this two-pack it will ring in at $30. Three bucks may not seem like much, but when you buy 50-100 deluxes in a year, it really starts to add up.
I already own the henkei cyclonus & 2.0 cyclonus.
I already own 2 of the 1.0 classics hotrod/rodimus.
I've got one of the 2.0 deluxe galvatron.
so i'm basically set & don't need anymore of these figures.
I have a set already sitting in my pile at BBTS. And I already have at least one version of each figure- 2 of Cyclonus and Rodimus. This is a great set, the Cyclonus colors are fantastic.
I think people are hoping for Target since Target generally has better pricing and WAY better stocking of exclusives. They may not get a large quantity, but they'll all be out there on an endcap, instead of one or two pegs like the TRU animated stuff.
I just received my Challange at Cybertron 3-pack from Robot Kingdom in Hong Kong and holy CRAP was that fast shipping! I just received my shipping notice a few days ago.
Haven't had a chance to open it yet, but so far this Rodimus is really knocking my socks off. The new paint scheme is AWESOME in person. No pics I've seen really convey how sharp he looks.
That Rodimus looks hideous.
my pre-order processed so fuck it. if it comes to target, i'll buy for misb purposes..
Post some pictures of Rodimus when you crack it open. I've seen some already, but more never hurts.
I really only want galvatron and cyclonus. I think I might wait
I think I prefer the gray Galvatron over this white repaint. Is Cyclonus repainted as well? I can't tell.
If this set shows up at Target (which, to be honest, would be the only reason I'd get it since I have all the figures original releases) Galvatron will replace the current Galvatron, my current Rodimus will go into the Protector armor (and this will represent Hot Rod), and Cyclonus... I don't know yet...
Cyclonus is definitely a repaint. The old US version had grey wings and shoulder bits, this one is a solid lavender most of the way through. I'll have to get it in hand to be sure but it looks mostly like a darker version of the Henkei release.
How's the contrast on the flames on Rodimus's chest? That looks like the one weak spot to me, flames and background seem to blend together.
One weak spot? I'd say the blue windows are worse, based on the pictures. He'd be darn near perfect with clear blue windows.
I posted some loose bot-mode pics of all three HERE, if you're interested.
I'd like to wait for them to hit Target but I'm probably gonna break down and get them from BBTS.
I am absolutely waiting for the US release (of which there will almost certainly be, considering the box design).
Even though I already have Galvatron & Cyclonus I still lack a proper Hot Rod and I'm quite fond of the "cartoon" color scheme that these figures use. Considering how fiddly Universe Galvatron is it will make me feel better to have a spare in case one breaks, and the purple Cyclonus can be part of the armada.
I'm waiting for Target to clearance these within 2-4 weeks of showing up
I need that Cyclonus in my life.
You're joking right? Even if these do make it to Target, clearance is going to take a heckuva lot longer to happen than that. Of course that's assuming these warm the shelves (not a huge stretch considering recent Target exclusives).
I preodered at BBTS and payment has already went through. the set is sitting in my pile of loot. Oh well. I would have loved to have gotten it cheaper at target but who knows if that's even going to happen. I can't wait to have a proper Cyclonus. I have the other two (classics and henkei) and they aren't too good. Classics is too much like the original toy in color and Henkei.... well.... we love Henkei. HAHAHAHA..... the color sucks hard.
