    There's a new Blackout in-hand photo thread now, and it looks like he's mostly riveted/pinned together (some screws in his core mass, but most of his limbs look to rely on the pins/rivets). Even the rotor blades look to be pinned in, rather than just clipped in like the old Voyager.

    Yeah but they get in product regardless. You just have to be either lucky, or on top of it. There's always Kay Bay Toys cominh down the pipeline (supposedly)

    I’m waiting for all three. MPM version seems inevitable if they want to make a full lineup from 07. Be nice if i didn’t have to wait until I’m 35 to get it though. And KO OS...well considering they upscale everything, companies like WJ would be foolish not to. It’s guaranteed sales

    Farmers in Takapuna looks to be rolling out Studio Series stuff. Only saw Grimlock and Blackout there, so I nabbed Grimlock.

    This was all about half an hour ago, so if anyone is in the area wanting a Blackout, there should still be one waiting for you.

    Pretty sure I can easily trick my wife into thinking a detour to Farmers today is a good idea. I'll just hide all her makeup and/or clothes and she'll be keen as.

    Picked up my Blackout today at The Warehouse, looking forward to getting home to open him up.

    May even watch the 2007 movie for a nostalgia hit while I’m at it.

    Can’t believe it’s been almost 11 full years since release!
