I feel the same way with BBTS. But it's mostly because they always charge me customs. ALWAYS!
The lack of headlights is an affront to my childhood nostalgia.
Is it true they removed the "to punish and enslave' marking on Barricade?
Same but beware that Hasbro has been less consistent on alt-mode scale than they are with robot mode scale. SLS Soundwave is literally as big as his DOTM Deluxe in vehicle mode which was (IIRC) 1:32.
TLK Crosshairs is in desperate need of a repaint. I sold mine because I couldn't stand how awfully bland he was even with customs.
What a shame his backpack looks terribly messy. I really like his alt-mode though (despite not having headlights for some reason).
I think he;s pretty good if you ignore how limited his shoulders are, if you wanna use them outside of a few degrees. you need to fully disconnect the backpack, Impressed that the fingers on the inside his hands pointing towards his torso are on 5mm pegs creating an area for his whips to plug into, his fingers plug into the same ports the whips do in vehicle mode, so you wont lose them if thats what youre worried about
and on about the review on this site...I dont know. Im staff on allspark. is that even proper? it feels so wrong. like i am doing something bad
Grindor totally sounds like the name of a MOTU character
To be fair, it's not BBTS that's charging you import tax, it's the Import and Customs Service branch of the government of wherever you're living
They should give 50% of figures the SS-05-32 treatment.
@ObakaChanTachi yea I'm thinking about giving mines away too. I have the same feelings as well
Okay now I'm glad I picked up Barricade during the Walmart restock. Do we know of any other changes to the Buzzworthy sets?
Thanks for the elaboration! I'm mighty tempted....the paint job just looks SO GOOD. But I've been getting into devil saviour troublemaker and I don't really have any more room left in the TF budget right now unless I sell more stuff. But at the same time I know these things don't stay available for too long.
Thanks for the details. I'm excited for Jolt. And do whatever you want about the review thread. Really all you're doing is getting the discussion going.
I mean it's not BBTS charging you customs, it's the Canadian government. I've been hit or miss with BBTS, some shipments get dinged, some don't. But the carriers brokerage fees are the worst. $24 brokerage fee for a $30 order. I've given up on BBTS for that reason unless it's something no Canadian retailer has.
Any other US store online I don't pay as often. But BBTS, ALWAYS!
I did some work on Crosshairs and i think he turned out good. (I can see someone from hasbro thinking this mold might work as a ss release though) @AutobotJazz1 @ObakaChanTachi
They even should give SS-32 the SS-32 treatment
Old Roman Times
It wouldn’t be the first time that Hasbro re-release TLK mold as an SS figure. Considering we already got TLK molds like Drift, Bumblebee, KSI Boss (Nitros mold), and Cogman in SS release. I really hope they make a new mold for SS AOE/TLK Optimus rather than 2017 mold. (It was really good at the time of its release but the leg articulation brings down that mold a lot IMO)
