    It makes me feel better that I didn't crack on MP Dinobot, or BW Megs knowing the last 3 big ticket MPs have all exploded.

    Or MPM ironhide, which can't even transform right... (I think MPM Megs and Jazz were fine... though I hear Jazz has a tendency to come apart at the middle XD)

    Man, as much as KOs aren't great.... I feel a lot better dropping like $60 on a dinobot that might break than... $300 or whatever it was.

    Also looks like my fancy reflector from Pulse just shipped.

    Stopped by the Penn/494 Walgreens, no Ratchet, but I did see a Brunt for the first time in the wild, skipped him cause he looked like he had splash of overpaint on the lip

    My Cheetor has an unglued neck, so the head pops off if I'm not careful
    Haven't had any breakage with my Megatron or Dinobot, only slight paint issues

    Plus, to me, personally, the Newage Ironide (McCoy) looks so much better. I'm leaning more and more toward 3P Legends scale to get my 84-85 crew.

    Man, that just makes me kinda wish they did legends-scale Bayverse stuff. I'm not beholden to any particular line, and if someone can do it cool, I'd be interested. Speaking of New Age though, how do they stack up compared to IF? I love IF's aesthetic, but they're too pricey (I think you and I talked about that in a parking lot once? It was someone from the boards at least).

    I have so many shady parking lot conversations, it's hard to keep them all straight!

    I've never owned Iron Factory, so I can't speak to that. NA are comparable in price to IF though. IF is definitely more stylized, whereas NA is more G1 screen-accurate. The new NA Megatron coming this month costs $70, but comes loaded with Masterpiece levels of accessories.

    And yes... I would totally be into a Legends-scale line of Bayverse stuff, at least certain characters!

    EDIT: Just now realizing you said "MPM" Ironhide, not "MP" Ironhide, so my pic probably seemed random! :p

    Eagan Walmart with a couple of Jetfire this morning. Once again, not by the other TFs. But the box is huge so it's hard to miss.

    Nabbed Highjump and Powertrain pack (left 2 on the peg)at Richfield Target as well as one Series 3 Botbots single pack. That Pacifier is ridiculous.

    Did they have any other S3 stuff out?

    Also: Bloomington Target had 1 Rainmaker set as well as multiple micromaster sets.

    :Edit: went to Richfield Target this morning. Most of a set of s3 botbots blind packs, so I was able to grab 3/4 that I needed. Still missing Greeny Rex (which is #1 on the back)

    Crazy, I just went over there, and there were three! So STILL two left!

    In other news, I finally nabbed a Music Label Prime, who looks pretty cool with anime-head Bumblebee!

    Anybody else here own ML Convoy/Prime? The head's a bit wobbly on mine. Normal? 20190908_170620.jpg

    EP Target looks to have a full set of s3 BotBot blinds, aside from the Greeny Rex I came home with after dinner at Lion's Tap!

    They also have 1 Chopper Drift, 2 Hightowers, and 3 Dropkick cars.

    I gotta say, that whole wave was great. Dropkick's car more is the rare TF that doesn't just follow the usual car blueprint, and Chopper Drift looks fantastic in both modes for being just a really big re-engineer of Chopper Dropkick. Hightower is also fantastic, just because of how darn abnormal he is. Say what you will about Bayverse, but at least they tried some really out-there robot designs.

    Same for Pablos. I miss Pablos

    I grabbed a Commander Class Jetfire for $45 at the Rochester South Walmart. They're next to the other new Marvel Legends that they are clearancing out as well. Don't know why they're putting them on sale.
