    It was such a nice day out yesterday that I transformed Unicron out in my front yard. Still figuring out where I'm gonna display him.

    Happy Easter!

    Hear me out. It began as more of a dumb joke because my friend and I were trying to convince my brother that Amazon Prime is worth it. So he says he “finally got Prime”. Then I asked Optimus or Rodimus.

    Now wouldn’t it be kind of cool if Hasbro did an Amazon exclusive called Amazon Prime? Could be a female Prime and a Beast Wars character. I feel there’s a missed opportunity here.

    An TFxAmazon figure that turns in to one of their delivery vans would be a fun Prime Day exclusive. Retool ER Ironhide.

    Instead of a Matrix, his chest holds a package. And his accessories include a delivery scanner and one of those dollies.

    Also we already got that weird crossover with the one chinese company a few years back, so why not?

    Hopefully it leads to a line of Target-masters.

    Battlemasters kind of filled that role and we got Crosshairs and Spinister but no Sureshot.

    Part of why I loved Generations Hound and Cyclonus is we got Ravage and Nightstick. Those little dudes packed in made it feel like a better value.

    Just grabbed the one and only SS72 Bumblebee Movie Starscream from Chaska Target.

    Scanner says 1 in back - not sure if it’s Starscream, Hot Rod or other.

    Darn. It's always right when I have a big expense that the new stuff shows up. I just bought a new car.

    Thursday/Friday are going to be *very* spendy. I mean, hypothetically. They'll all drop at different times.

    They've already confirmed the Commander and Titan reveals are part of the panel. (Rodimus and the Ark respectively)

    My guess is Kingdom Wave 3 will also be in tow, which is Core Soundwave and Dracodon, Deluxe Scorponok, Tracks, and Wingfinger, as well as Voyager Rhinox and Leader Galvatron.

    Not sure if there'll be any Exclusives, but considering this is replacing NYCC odds are pretty good something will come of that as well.

    Beyond that, not sure. But that's already quite the tab for me. And that's before I factor in any potential Power Rangers or Marvel stuff.

    Went to a few Targets today. Andover and Coon Rapids had the new Bumblebee movie Starscream for Studio Series, but nothing else of interest. Blaine Target still says it has over 24 Deluxe Kingdom in the back.

    Aren’t Waspinator and Tigatron supposed to be in that lineup too?

    Waspinator, Shadow Panther, and Tigatron are Wave 4.

    That's not to say we won't see them. But it's less likely.
