Conversely, his vehicle mode (Drift's) is nearly Voyager sized.
He may be smaller, I don’t know as I don’t have the SS/RA molds, but A) SS Drift is awesome and B) you do realize that all this picture shows is how differently they are packaged, right?
Drift’s head and feet are clearly lower in the box than RA’s.
There is one Siege Thundercracker at Arbutus Walmart right now.
4 G1 Soundwaves at Randallstown Walmart, for anyone still looking.
God bless you man I've been looking forever! Just snagged one, there's still two left.
Well, I guess that’s a positive for some.
Take a look at the picture again. While I aligned the boxes by hand & without use of a spirit/bubble level ruler, I adjusted to where their feet are [approximately] on the same level, despite where the exterior of the boxes begin/end. Note Drift’s feet are clearly well above the 45, and while it might be a smidge lower than red alert’s feet, their is a much more significant difference in where their heads align in that drift’s head is much lower than red alert’s head. The top of his crown probably doesn’t even come to red alert’s cheek. But hey, the difference is more apparent/jarring in person, although I think zooming in and out on the pic tells the story too.
In my observation, it’s a continuation of their similar sized boxing for same scale of prior line, but smaller figure within. The disparity is merely increasing.
Yeah, actually I can see that now. Good point. Still, awesome figure is awesome. I personally have given up on worrying about scale to a degree. We have to remember that it’s nearly impossible for complicatedly designed and manufactured toys will never consistently match what some animator came up with, because of logistic physics. If I enjoy a toy, that’s good enough for me. It’s a lone thing.
I like MFT legends+ sized figures too, and that’s what it seems that that drift would compete with scale wise.
BTW, huge M.A.S.K. fan here, so your M.A.S.K./Optimus pic associated with your profile had me check the M.A.S.K. thread I followed a long time back. Happy to see some relatively recent posts there.
As for sightings, YMMV but some GameStops have a 20% DC collectibles that ends today (not a part of their pro day weekend sale), and their overwatch figures are at 40%, which is a part of their pro day weekend sale.
Also, found a couple of 2-pack studio series bumblebees at Burlington coat factory for $17.99, hidden under one of the toys tables.
Not TF related but, in case anyone is interested Arbutus Walmart has skiffs and Jabbas palace.
Edit: never mind. They aren’t selling them for whatever reason.
I was at the Ellicott City Walmart last night, and they had a pallet with these sets (and more) on them. They have a street date of October 6th...someone wasn't paying attention to the boxes before unpacking them.
Oh. Seems kind of silly for a street date considering I can just buy the skiff on Hasbro Pulse right now, and Jabba’s palace has been available for months in other regions. The price ends with .67 cents which typically denotes a discontinued item.
Do not question street dates, they are strange, ancient rituals, and are to be respected and obeyed. To do otherwise would be to invite the wrath of La'wsoote.
Just saw 6(!) Siege Rainmaker sets at the Columbia Target.
MPs on the shelf at Third Eye Comics in Annapolis
4 Cyberverse Grimlock
1 Cyberverser Optimus Prime
2 Siege Starscream
2 Siege Hound
2 Siege Red Alert
1 Siege Brunt
2 Cyberverse Megatron
1 SS Sideswipe 29
1 SS Dropkick 22
1 SS Crankcase 30
3 SS Bumblebee 26
1 SS Barricade 28
9 rainmaker, and 8 minicon 10packs at Columbia target.
Glen Burnie Target on Ritchie has three rainmaker sets, five of the minicon 10 packs, one spark armor Shockwave and two spark armor ratchets. There is also an empty end cap set up for force Friday.
Has anyone seen any Siege Jetfires anywhere? I've been checking Walmarts, and while Brickseek has been saying a bunch have some in stock, none have had them in the back or on shelves or whatever.
I would love me some $45 Jetfire.
Nope - I think they are pretty much cleaned out. I've been looking too since the weekend they went on clearance and haven't found anything. Going to hold out and hope he drops in price around Black Friday.
Heads up for anyone hitting target between now and the 6th. I just had a Springer and thundercracker in hand, and their pos has that whole dpci street dated so they can't sell anything. Tried explaining that there's no possible way a line out for a year is street dated, hoping I'd at least be able to walk out with springer.
So if anyone manages to get them before I do you're welcome.
