    Well, looks like more money saved - between this and Botcon, this is turning out to be a pretty poor year for convention exclusives.

    Transformers that can't transform = fail. That aspect aside, I don't like the mighty muggs at all. They all look the same just with different paint, big deal.

    Yay! Hasbro wants to help us all save money in these harsh economic times (for all the "editions" of ROTF toys). Thankyou Hasbro :thumbs2:

    People say this stuff now but come Comic con watch them all sell out :rolleyes: 

    But I agree theres nothing thats come so far that I want, oh well more money for other stuff, and less time spent in line for Hasbro and more time spent in line for panels, I'm sure I'm gonna need it :(

    Ugh! Am I the only one that hates the bobble head cheapness of these?
    Not trying to reign on everyone's parade, but these things are so Kindergarten ugly.

    It's either everyone but me loves these ugly things or no one ever speaks up that they hate them thinking everyone will bash them. Retaliate and speak your mind.

    For the 25th anniversary of TFs, these have been some unimpressive exclusives from Hasbro. I mean, a Mighty Mugg? These things are just a fad that are going to be forgotten within a few years, if not sooner. Why not doing Universe 2.0 Red Alert as an exclusive repaint? Or releasing Titanium Primal Prime? Or something that doesn't just scream of absolutely no effort whatsoever?

    While on the topic of SDCC, why the heck is Soundwave so freakin' expensive? The past few SDCC "main" TF exclusives have been half that price. TRU Soundwave cost me $9.99
    $50 for a smaller tapedeck and two extra tapes (one of which is a recolor)?
    Well, I suppose it's nice for people who want a Ratbat, don't like the double deck, or missed out on TRU Soundwave. Still, as many have said, I would have been ecstatic if they'd made Soundblaster instead.

    This. After the past two years worth of Hasbro Toy Shop's mishandling of the SDCC ecxlusives, I sure as hell better be able to get one of each since nobody here seems to want them. But alas they will all sell out to people buying them for 'friends' or 'trades'. Which in English translates into 'ebay'.

    I'm a Mugg addict, but this will be a definite pass for me.

    Must army build the reissue soundwave. The last reissue never showed up in my toys r us. Mainly doing it to replace my junker ravage and finally get some ratbat tapes.

    Massive Massive pass on mighty mugs optimus. Its even a stab in the back to those who bought the first one.

    It is SDCC though. They love the hipster garbage mugs.
    Which is all they will amount to in my eyes if we don't see jazz.

    I'll probably sell my Classics Reissue Soundwave to get the new one with the extra tapes. Mostly because Ratbat is awesome.
