    ZOWIE! Warpath came today. Came packed with this Dinobot card. I assume these are random, and I didn’t get the wrong one?

    Yeah they're random from what I've heard. I got 2xOptimus, 1 Ark, and 1 Dinobot. They all seem to be the same too. I don't really get the point of them.

    If you peel the foil off they show different paths or something like that, each character has like 4 different paths.

    Oh yeah I get that, but the fates on my 2 optimus were the same and the whole thing just seems weird

    GameStop has/had Beast Megatron in stock and he qualifies for free shipping. So I went ahead and ordered.

    I'll hold on to the Pulse pre-order until he gets here, juuuust in case.

    Is it generally recommended to remove batteries from figures with electronics? I don't want to risk corrosion damage particularly on fancy third-party products, but light features can be cool!

    Absolutely. Unicron trilogy toys were full of them. If I get a figure with electronics, I test the functions to make sure they work, then I remove the batteries. When I went to sell all those figures about a decade later, there was no corrosion or damage and my buyers were happy!

    Ok folks. If you find yourself at a Walmart with a Doubledealer, scan that toy! I was at Eden Prairie and there was one hanging out in the clearance isle with no sticker. Scanned at a price checker and it came us as "see associate". I just got a $5 leader class, that was their "correct" price. Scoured the store for another but no dice. Not sure if it's just EP but dang!

    If anyone happens in to this with a spare ER Prime *please* grab it for me. Heck, for a $5 Prime I'll even pay shipping if you're too far away from Eagan for pickup.

    Son picked out another robot for me for Christmas.
    20201225_222824.jpg

    Apparently he first wanted to pick out ER Astrotain because I had one coming in the mail so he could help me get it faster (which is adorable because it arrived a month before he went shopping and I had told him it came in the mail). But we had set a pretty firm budget.

    So then he picked this one because it was a red jet like the Paw Patrol toy he asked Santa for.
