    In a previous email to them last week. They (customer services) said they didn't know when new items would be up for sale and they didn't expect TFcon Volar to be available.

    Kinda bummed that they never did release better hip joint ratchets for this figure. The ratchets are so widely spaced, he can only hold like two poses.

    They should have just been ball jointed instead. Hip ratchets generally suck unless a figure is especially weighty.

    Well, TFSource has been posting sales on the weekends. This weekend was Volar, last weekend was Knight. Before that they reduced the price of Spinout to half price for a weekend, before that Warbotron Sly Strike was half price for a weekend....

    I wish I had gotten Knight. It went back up to full price now. Madlaw still has a small discount, but I want Knight for my Masterforce shelf.

    I had to jump on this fig at 60$. It doesn't fit with anything in my collection, but its just so shiny and I like the design aesthetic. Total impulse item, as I never even looked at it before the sale.

    He really is a cool looking figure.


    I'm glad I finally caved on him last weekend.

    Same here, although I do have the other retail dinobots. Here's to hoping the other convention exclusives go on sale.

    This x10000

    I was playing around with him this weekend after putting on some Reprolabels. Wish there was just another click. Even a shapeways part I'd get.

    Can anyone confirm or deny if this version comes with the Columpio hip replacements as well? or is that just the normal release?

    Damn. So if I wanted to buy all the TFcon dinos I would be left with a balljointed Columpio?

    Yes. I prefer the balljoints so I can't agree in it being a problem but yes; that is what you would have.

    Oh? I thought they were super loose which is why Volar came with the fix, are they better on the Diaclone version?
