    So that ebay seller I posted those photos from before seems to have two new listings one showing better angles of that Ratchet Daimao posted about from that MM facebook group.

    s-l1600.jpg s-l1604.jpg s-l1605.jpg
    Also mirrored the rest of the pics from the listing but I don't think anything else is new.

    What is new is anew version of BB, possible chase version of the new BB, and a Lockdown supposedly from series 2.

    Managed to grab all the "blind" packed Transformer sets. Its crazy that we're getting G1 themed repaints as Micro Machines but nothing in Studio Series.

    Honestly it's probably cheaper to do as MM than it is to do for SS. Realistically how many people are really seeking G1 decos on movie figures. I know there are people out there who do like it but is it a large enough group to break out of that niche to make it fiscally worth while for Hasbro.

    But going back to MM's I really hoe they branch out beyond just Movie or G1. Seriously Animated, Unicron Trilogy, Prime, RID, Cyberverse, or RID2015. None of these are licensed so it's just a matter of creating molds. Plus there's plenty of room from each of those series to get repaints.

    There's probably about the same demand as all the diaclone/ G2 repaints they make in generations selects but who knows. Its probably easier for MM to do movie stuff since they already have licensing from a bunch of the vehicle companies. I think they're double dipping and releasing some of the TF molds as regular cars too. I saw a blue corvette in a 2 pack that looked like the Sideswipe mold.

    Well, there is a large following for G1 and Movie Bots so I'd wager there'd be a large enough demand.

    According to one of the MM Facebook groups, the 4 packs have been found at a Target in Texas: FB_IMG_1653436699471.jpg FB_IMG_1653436704095.jpg

    Do we have any kind of comprehensive TFMM Master List of all the sculpts and decoes so far, and what all's needed for a complete set with minimum duplication (and in the blind boxes non-TF content)?

    For the blind boxes:
    1A-01: Adventure Racing Truck
    1A-02: Cliffjumper
    1B-01: Optimus Prime
    1B-02: ROTF Megatron
    2A-01: Food Truck
    2A-02: BMW (gold)
    2B-01: Nemesis Prime
    2B-02: Sideswipe
    3A-01: Private Jet
    3A-02: Starscream
    3B-01: BMW
    3B-02: Bugatti

    There are 12 different vehicles but only 6 different playsets. You have to buy multiples of some of the playsets to get all 6 TF vehicles. There's 2 Amazon 8 packs, which are being split up into 4 packs at Target. And of course Barricade is exclusive to the Bumblebee playset. Thats all for series 1.

    The first movie one looks awesome!
    The second one looks okay, i mean why the Arcee triplets, there\'s Sideways, contructicons, Sideswipe, why them? The Megatron too looks a bit boring and messy.
    But i\'ll still pick them up, because ofcourse i do.

    I saw these yesterday at Target as well. I might buy them if they drop to $3 on clearance. $10.49 for 4 tiny crap cars is extortion. $2.60 per car, especially with the two motorcycles is insane. $5 for the whole pack is acceptable, but not $10.

    Hot Wheels are licensed, still $1, and are made from metal. I bought one of the new Micro Machine series 1 packs at Walmart when they went of clearance for $2. I had almost the entire Micro Machine line when I was a kid, so I wanted to at least compare the new ones. The quality is so abysmal that I felt ripped off even at that price.

    I saw the set with movie 1 Megatron at Target yesterday in Manhattan Beach, CA. I forgot these were new, commented on them to my girlfriend, then left them there because my Micro Machines days are long behind me.
