    Isn't Thrust an exclusive though? Might not really be included in the wave.

    He was found in Amazon and Walmart but rumored to be target. @Jtprime17 and lonewolf96 both said mainline

    No early information said it was but looks like due to some shuffling he was moved to regular retail.

    Jtprime17 said that based on info he had Thrust was never exclusive.

    The new feet is because Topspin is supposed to be tall. Around TLK Crosshairs' height. Plus it helps make him look more proporionate IMO.

    Such a shame that Beetlebee is so... underwhelming?... when compared to the other 2.

    I have split feelings about it. The 86 movie is the only part of G1 I really like so I'm putting the cast together happily, but Bay stuff is what I mainly collect. By the time the next Bay figures release it will have been the better part of a year with Dino as the only thing we got, as great as Dino is. It sucks to see the stuff I care about most get squeezed out. On the other hand I'm kinda grateful to have a break from it after collecting it for nearly 3 years solid, and I don't have to keep up with full slates of 86 and Bay figures.

    Knowing we have plenty of cool Bay stuff coming in the future makes it more tolerable too. It would really suck to sit here and wonder what was happening if not for lonewolf and the others keeping us informed.

    My wave assortments, mixing 86 and Bayverse would look something like this:

    Wave 13:
    ROTF Bee
    Jolt

    Thrust
    Wreck Gar

    Slag

    Wave 14:
    ROTF Sideswipe
    Gnaw

    Sweep

    Grindor

    I don’t really wanna have these short waves but it seems like that’s what we’re gonna get.

    It is too bad that Cyber Bee’s and Jeep Bee’s plastic don’t exactly match in color. Otherwise we would get a perfect Jeep Bee!

    Oh yes.

    Here's Ratchet. I jumped on him as soon as he showed up at Target.

    B-127. No Dino. This feels weird.

    Same situation at my Target. I think they just didn’t stock Dino. I have collectors in my town for TF’s, but they don’t swipe the entire wave to resell. Couldn’t check if they had him either since the wave isn’t technically supposed to be out yet.

    Was in the middle of getting pictures for my Long Haul upload and realized I forgot to weather the tires! Went and did that real quick, the flat coat is drying right now. Upload coming in a little bit!

    Can’t go wrong with some in the car shots. Haven’t taken photos like this really ever but this was fun, might revisit some SS figures and make battle scenes while I wait for the jolt wave. Also my moms windshield is pretty dirty. 78765680-F9DB-4C98-B401-F31F8B42EE63.jpeg C3544271-EC8E-4370-A205-59D92DBF1C98.jpeg
