That's one gorgeous shot man!
I just had a thought about Blitzwing's inaccurate jet mode.
We all know Transformers are intended for kids and kids want to play with their toys. With a jet, kids want to be able to hold it and "whoosh" it around like it's flying through the air. Most kids, I would assume, would hold a toy jet from the undercarriage so they can see the top as they fly it around.
With the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II and the way the wings sit lower on the body of the jet there's no convenient place for a kid to hold the jet from underneath.
Obviously this is complete conjecture on my part as I have no idea what Hasbro does when designing a toy but it makes some sense.
I remember going there for my 13th birthday the year of movie 1 figures. I bought classics Camero bee (note when I bought him there they had a ton). Later in the day I open him and he broke right out of the package. I go to return it and replace it for another and they were all gone.
honestly i think the alt mode was genericized for ease of remolds into starscream or something, that way they don't turn into phantoms but into generic jets at least. yea they'd be more accurate as tetrajets but them just being generic earth jets might be a compromise
Does anyone trust Brickseek when it comes to finding Leadfoot?
Starscream as a Phantom would be perfect though. I mean,
Overload in Scorponok mode finding prey...
Wheelie: "We had a nice run, Brains..."
No not accurate. I went to my local target and they had 5 leadfoots. Checked brickseek and it said that target was out of stock even though he wasn't.
Can't wait to get this Bee!!
Yea I get that.
That my friend, is waaay below the beltline. That's a different kind of hole
It's that ass of his isn't it lol
Or maybe the clamp?
This was one I couldn't skip... jack.
"That man's an impostor!" "That man is the impostor!"
"You get to be the leg now. I'm going to go kill the marketing's poster boy with Ravage, it's gonna go well, trust me."
And all 9 of my Constructicons assembled.
Also $7.50 off with code PARTYFOR25
Came here to say this but you have it covered. I think one of you mentioned wanting Cogman and he's available as well, I just checked. SS Cogman.
Can you double dip sales codes @Hobbylink? If so, that's an impressive amount off.
That’s what I’m currently using too. It’s been very accurate in the past and actually helped me track down my mpm starscreams.
The key that I have found with leadfoot since he is street dated for Sept 11th. Look for stores that are showing 1 in stock. If it shows 1 in stock, that means they were placed on the shelves and 1 was purchased. Thats how I found mine. Targets that showed 2 in stock, were all in the back and I got street dated.
Those look great together! Glad I ordered the BMB Brawl To go with my cons!
if ever you need your Hound repainted let me know ;-)
Does anyone know about a Studio Series Soundwave with Ravage? That sounds like an obvious choice for the series, but there’s been NO announcements on it and it seems like it’s going to happen at some point. Anyone have a guess or any obscure info?
An rotf Soundwave has been released, no Ravage.
There are rumors of an upcoming Grindor repaint of Blackout that will replace the Scorponok Minifigure with Ravage.
bro why would you put this in the news and rumours section
