    I cant express how perfect these are. Outside of the QC, which every company has, these are easily my favorite transformers ever, including both official and 3rd party items. Cant wait for the final two members.

    I actually think at some point I will buy a second set to display in combined mode...if I win the lottery a 3rd set for vehicle mode. Im praying we get a G2 version....wait, no Im not.

    Now ToyWorld...make me a MP Raiden PLEASE!! I mean Raiden and Devastator were friends then they became each others' rivals.

    Hot Rod is super nice. Feel he is a bit short in robot mode compared to others especially MP Magnus but still leaps and bounds better than what we have got before.

    The size shifting of Ironhide is amazing.

    Big thanks, once again, to James at Primetoys for the MP Hot Rod and for meeting up, especially on late notice!! I was on the fence about him, but glad I got him.

    I got my MP Hot Rod yesterday.
    Oh! I also know why we don't have KO's of Tracks etc onward. TakTom has moved production to Vietnam. My Tracks, Ironhide, & Hot Rod are all made there. I don't expect there to be any KO's of them made either.

    That makes a lot of sense! Thanks.

    Hey, everyone, I feel like I should be able to figure this out, but... WTF does CHUG stand For again? I mean in TF collecting. It refers to some line or other, I guess?

    When in doubt, try the TF Wiki:

    eh, don't be so sure. the KO market always finds a way. all it takes is one employee to nab a copy and send to their buddy in china.

    not trying to be contradictory either, just when you let your guard down to KO's or begin thinking that they "can't be made", all of a sudden you end up with a few unintentional ones in your collection.

    better to just stay informed on the KO market, even if you do or don't buy them, so you are at least aware and informed of whats out there.

    I saw all of the deluxes from Wave 6 at Algonquin Meijer. Along with Swindle and Offroad. There are 2 Voyager Cyclonuses. Also there is Warrior Sideswipe in a really damaged package, and 2 Warrior Steeljaws.
