    Well, for a figure I was excited for I am highly disappointed Rotorstorm saw zero retooling from Spinister, a new head at least would have been nice

    I kind of wonder if this is all done on purpose... Early adopter pre-order perk, then full price an hour later. It's happened like three to four times, it's a pattern, definitely.

    After retrying many times, I was able to secure a preorder for Centurion.

    Oh shoot - the price for Centurion just shot up! My order still has the original amount. This reminds me of what happened with some Siege figures last year when they went up for $9.99 briefly.

    They will honor the price. I got ectotron for 39.99 before they bumped it up in price.

    So I got “sold out” 4 times trying to order centurion. I almost gave up but closed everything, went back to pulse and tried for a 5th time and got him ordered

    Good thing I didn't hesitate on the Centurion pack. In hindsigh, the price error makes the shipping charge to Canada more bearable.

    Can't wait to get my hands on it.

    That's most likely the case. It seems like Hasbro is doing a huge number of Selects releases this year so I'm not surprised they didn't put a new head on Rotorstorm.

    I definitely wasn't going to buy him. I'm not against him, but I have no real affection for the character and not that big on partsformers. I'd buy him at a significant discount, or with some insanely cool weapons which was the case here.

    Those weapons are so cool I would have paid the $30 but I wouldn't have bought 2.

    It's hilariously stupid that Earthrise Optimus didn't come with his axe and Roller, considering that the trailer is major weaksauce (barely painted AND missing the rear bumper)

    But I'm still buying the pack. Late stage capitalism.

    Thank God I bowed out of Studio Series when I could. More power to the people who like it, but between Generations, a guitar I still have to pay off, and a bass/combo amp I'm eyeing for some home recording...I think I'm spent.

    C'mon Congress, help me out with this stimulus check you keep promising

    Given that I just purchased a second Brunt to deco with the alternative character Toyhax labels, I really had no interest.

    Given that the toys won't ship until October, I'm holding out some hope of the gray items getting color, Reflector and Shockwave in particular (gray is fine for weapons and a sensor dish). I just can't imagine them doing a Unicron-Prime microfig in gray (unless it is Deadimus Prime?)

    ... well, damn.

    Now I need to decide between Nonnef's trailer upgrade for $25 or Centurion for $30.

    On one hand, the Centurion itself looks great, and the scaled Soundwave, Megatron, Reflector, and Shockwave are great (... even if I do have some form of all of them. The cage and axe look awesome. Other than Roller, IDGAF about the other "iconic" weapons but a few extra never hurt.

    But... Nonnef's actually improves the trailer to be a true proper CHUG Prime Trailer. I'm objectively getting less, but everything included is something I want.

    Blarg.
