    Sigh, still no Air Raid. :(  I wonder how long Hasbro will take to restock them enough so the scalpers won't put it up on eBay for double its retail price.

    My wife brought home wave 2 deluxes for me today from Walmart. Passed on the Megatron because I'm getting Apollyon. As with other board members that had issues, the wave 2 wasn't in the system yet but she had no problems as they just keyed in the price.

    I must say though, I love Superion but Menasaur is a floppy mess. He can't hold himself up under his own weight, nothing on Motormaster stays tabbed in, and pretty much impossible to pose. I have the PE hands/feet on preorder and I don't think that will do anything for his stability. Very disappointing. All of the individual bots are great IMO though.

    Both my Superion and Menasor have been standing side by side perfectly on their own all week. I like both equally =)

    I also have the PE parts pre-ordered ;)

    maybe I just got a bad one? I may be able to do something to tighten the tabs I don't know.

    My Menasor will stand okay like that. But he won't hold any kind of pose without propping him against the wall or something. I have Superion in a cool stance and he holds it pretty decent. The PE add ons will help even more for him. But Menasor would rather tumble than hold any kind of pose.

    It's not as fun for me to display my figures just standing there though. I like some sort of pose or at least a cool stance.

    thanks for the update. guess it wont be long now then. I don't care for any of these as I don't have alpha bravo and those gold silverbolt stickers don't appeal to me. maybe airraid and slingshot will have good sets.

    My Menasor stands quite fine upright (I never was any good at posing these new-fangled 'bots with art-eeee-ku-lay-shun or whatever it's called) with his legs mostly in the default config... I just don't peg in the hip guards so I can angle his legs straight down.

    Hmm..I managed to do various action poses just fine with my Menasor. The trick is to find a centre of gravity & keep on adjusting heel spurs of the feet components until you find the correct angle that's all. Also I seldom peg on those hip guards.

    Love me some Repro! ....but I can foresee those gold window strip stickers being a pain in the "A" to get to stay on.

    They've done Megatron, and they are doing Starscream at some point. What are the chances they will do Soundwave for Combiner Wars?

    I would have too imagine, if they do a Decepticon repaint wave at some point next year, he'd be on the shortlist. Seems like their are a few options that could work (Rook, perhaps)

    I can't believe this far into classics we still haven't gotten a proper Soundwave update (or that we got TWO versions of the tubby WFC design and haven't gotten a proper original)
