    Actually, I usually CAN just walk out and find new toys within a day or two of them being reported out, if I'm willing to check a few stores.

    Secondly, I post news for the Allspark. Pointless or not, people want to know when new toys are spotted. I have to report that and it makes a difference whether a picture is up as to whether it's reported as a rumour or a true sighting.

    At this point this seems like BS, frankly.

    Yep. Until I see some pics of the bot, I also call foul on this.


    Well, the reason that we want to know (and have confirmation) that there was an actual sighting (even if it's IN ANOTHER STATE) is because it gives everyone in the fandom a heads up that the new items are at least shipping out and some clues as to which retail chains are getting them first.

    If it wasn't for threads like these I would've never found those Walmart pallets that were full of the Wave 4 deluxes.

    So yeah, we would like some proof...so sue us.

    Jeez Super Mario, take a chill pill... and tell your wife to stop stalking me on myspace!!!! :p 

    Well lucky you...

    But seriously guys, Nevermore makes a good point that Sybertron Defense Hotshot and Downshift were slated for the same release time as these two, so it's very likely they'll start showing up, except at the Target where I and Laser Op work at, because there are four Mudflaps that haven't moved since Xmas there. :cry

    All I know is he's not at my store yet, so this doesn't help me either way. :p  But yeah... pics or foul.

    Exclamation marks make your points more valid. The more you use, the more valid you post is.

    Nah... just makes me look like an ass.

    Eh, I suppose I should apologize a little, I really didn't mean to come off like that. I just feel it's a little sad that everyone's always so untrustworthy of everyone who posts stuff. Or at least that's the way it seems to me all the time. Guess everyone has their reasons for acting the way they do.

    Dark Magnus you'd better behave. I know where you work. And my wife says she's not stalking you, but her friends are and they're right outside your house right now. :D

    Nonsense. But to address your point, there have been many false sightings. I recall one about a bloody alternator that didn't genuinely show up for months. I'm sure someone else can remember better examples with names.

    Then there was the guy that ate WST Soundwave...

    Yeah, I guess that would make everyone a bit leary and all.

    Someone ate WST Soundwave? I think I missed that one... :peoples:

    Same here. The glory of being the first with a toy is overrated and pointless. Fact is, give it 2 weeks, we'll all be complaining about these as shelfwarmers.

    Yeah, I used to be a "gotta have it first" guy....but this year I "came to my senses" and have bought almost ALL my Cybertron figs on sales. Even though I like this years line better than previous years I've saved a ton of $$$...hopefully when the Target endcap hits there will be sales and I can get this months waves at the same time :)

    I believe it was Decepticharge. I became very mistrustful after that. I blew up some poor guy that actually sighted Swerve because of the weird case assortment he was in. I have since repented.

    Damn I didn't think I could cause this much trouble by going to sleep. I forget how passionate some of you guys are.

    Just so you know this guy looks great. Couple of interesting notes: His elbow was redsigned so that he cant put his arm down all the way for no apparent reason. Also his feet slide in when he transforms so his calves are new too. I do like the subtle changes to his head. I think it sucks that his chest guns dont move though.

    Congrats on being the first person to find him! :thumb 

    Actually looks like a really nice figure, too, save for the arm problem.

    I don't like him as much as I thought I was going to. The original Crumplezone has really grown on me. Perhaps once I see this in person I will pick it up.
