    Aren't the monsters slightly bigger than the standard Ranger figures?

    My theory is there will eventually be lightning Megazords, but they'll be the non transforming type. "Show accurate" to the suit with articulation, and those will scale with the monsters.

    But who knows. Warden is running the show over there now, so if they give him the time/budget he'll figure out the Megazords.

    Lol. I was just there Friday. So it’s the one place I didn’t go when the wife and I were out getting stocking stuffers last night.

    Well, there were like 4-5 so chances are even if you swung over now they'd still have one.

    Wife had to go out for cookie ingredients. She said they still have three and is getting me one. She just texted me a few minutes ago.

    Lino Lakes Target has one each of Sunstreaker, Trailbreaker and Runamuck.

    Blaine Walmart on Ball Road has one Netflix Elita and a Netflix Impactor. Two Doubledealers too but they rang up at full price.

    There's one Doubledealer at Eagan Walmart. Full price and with a bad case of "I can't figure out how this thing works. Why can't the kid just like normal toys!? Take it back!"

    new cyberverse Deluxes at Edina target. No soundwaves tho (man what is it with soundwaves lately?). Should still be 2x Starscream and 1x Prowl.

    Speaking of soundwave (again) my Netflix one showed up in a box so big, it would make hasbro pulse go "Geez that's a little excessive." But at least I have him in hand so no more going to WalMart during christams shopping season during a pandemic.

    As far as the deluxes go, Prowl's fine, but a Prowl's a prowl, so there's nothing too crazy there. I do like him tho. Starscream, on the other hand, is a lot of fun and has some great engineering. Also a missile effect, and everyone needs one of those somewhere in their collection.

    Do you think Hasbro will miss the opportunity to put out a Generation Selects Wasp with the BB/CJ mold? Cause that would be a must have for me.

    I would absolutely love a Dawn of Futures Past set. It'd be a great way to expand the lore of BW and give us something new to go with our current BW collections.

    I was thinking more like TFA Wasp but yeah, it would be cool to see BW characters with G1 altmodes too.

    You could have gotten it for close to that during the 25% off any toy sale, so I would think anyone wanting to bite around that price would have already. I'm waiting for at least 50%, then I might pick one up. Unfortunately it looks like they found my stashed one, so I'll have to hunt for one if they get down to that much off and there are any still around.

    If anyone is still looking, Champlin Target had an ER Quintesson Judge last night. Nothing else interesting.

    Heads up to you gamers out there: this morning many local Targets got new shipments of the new Xbox. They can only be bought online and picked up locally; no shipping. I talked to one employee who told me the Shoreview store had about 25 left as of 8:30 this morning.

    Very strongly agree on Starscream. My expectations for him were pretty low from pictures I saw online, but he was a very pleasant surprise. I thought the cockpit on his chest was fake and that the back would have all sorts of clutter, but neither is true and the robot mode is extremely clean. Jet mode is odd, but apparently screen accurate, so I can't really complain there either. Ended up throwing him in my pocket and bringing him to work.

    Hey all! I am moving to Florida! Unfortunately, that means the end of FrankieCon as we know it :(  (Can you believe we had SEVEN FrankieCons!?!?)

    I'm sure the crew at Frankie's will be willing to still let someone organize the event and keep it going once they can reopen. PM me if you're interested in that.

    So Vertebreak is VERY small. But she's a lot of fun and has a decently fun transformation for her size. My only complaint is that her lower jaw in dino mode is that soft rubber so it's kinda fused with the rest of the joint and doesn't really open or close. I eventually got it to work tho, so I think it just needed to warm up. 20201222_164153.jpg
