    Eden Prairie Walmart had three Netflix Sparkless bots (the rust deco Prowl repaints) on clearance for I believe $13.

    Amazon exclusive Sideswipe/Maximal Skywarp was sitting tucked on my front door this afternoon.

    Sideswipe is as good as the Siege/Kingdom mold has been. I'm not a fan of the weapons molded in black and painted white, but I can get replacements from Nonnef.

    Skywarp...I don't really have any attachment to, so he's available to anyone that wants him here.

    Wish they would bring back the centurion pack back again. I missed out the 1st time they brought it back.

    And Wreck-Gar is already sold out...dang it. I got an email from Amazon my Mirage/Grimlock will be shipped to me by end of next week.

    In other news...more Kingdom Deluxe wave 3 sighting! Andover Walmart had all of the wave as well as two Commander class Rodimus Primes and a vintage TMNT Party Wagon...which I was tempted to buy, but I already have an original one from the 80s still.

    Andover Target also had full wave of Kingdom Deluxe wave 3 still as well as Voyager Dinobot and Inferno and like four Studio Series 86 Grimlocks.

    He's bundled with Wreck-Gar from what I recall, and I haven't heard of sightings for either yet. Same with Gnaw and his wave mates.

    Anyone seen Rhinox lately? I have the old Generations one, but I'd still like the Kingdom one. Same with Waspinator.

    HE IS HERE
    Finally got my Hands on Rodimus Prime, I can't pinpoint why I love this character but I can the figure.. Transformation is complex and engaging.. big clear panel is worrying but only slightly. way too many blast effects I had none now I have too many. black smoke stuff? no clue why this is here or what it is supposed to be but the idea of hot rod turning into a energon chugging campervan that bellows black smoke into the air for no reason is funny to me, is this what growing up is like? he looks so good next to Galvatron too
    trailer does NOT like to close and I feel does not need to be as complex as it is.. but fits the price

    If you hold the trailer closed for a bit - without the gun emplacement - it should start to stay closed after a while. I’ve read recommendations of putting a couple of rubber bands around it for a day or so.

    I saw one in Woodbury. I think it was Target (might have been Walmart) but I don't remember which Target. I think it was the one by Sam's. It also had the Nemesis Primal 4-Pack and both Targets had MPM-12. Cottage Grove Walmart has two Leader Class Grimlocks if anyone wants those.

    I actually just repositioned the gun and it seems to be only open a couple millimeters at most, seems to be ok now? If there are any future problems I'll find some rubber bands

    Amazon has him "in stock soon" which seems promising. They're currently taking orders at $29.99.

    Also, AV Walmart has Cyberverse Deluxes for $14... with the new Cheetor wave. Not sure if that's an accident because none of the others nearby have the same markdown.

    Also both it and Eagan Walmart have W3 Deluxes (Tracks/Scorpy Wave)

    BBTS has Rhinox in stock, and since they're based in Wisconsin even the $4 flat rate shipping is pretty quick for us.

    Got Sideswipe and Skywarp today. Nice set. Sideswipe looks dope with his rocket pack. Skywarp is better than I expected. No QC issues that I can detect, except Sideswipe’s knees are a BIT on the loose side.

    I've had my Ark for about a week now and count me among those who think he's one of the best things out of Kingdom, if not WfC.

    Possibly out of the last two trilogies?

    He's got a presence the other Titans don't. As cool as the combiners are even. (Not counting Unicron, naturally.)

    I think it's the giant spaceship alt. Having the bridge and thrusters in his bot mode gives him a sense of scale.

    People who've got this and Unicron should definitely pose them together. Scale be dammed.

    The Amazon Mirage/Grimlock 2-pack was sitting on my doorstep yesterday surprisingly. I read it was gonna be here today (Monday).

    Upon playing around with them a bit... Mirage is much smaller than his Siege counterpart as well as nicer that he doesn't have translucent legs to worry about. The missile launcher not having a place to go on his shoulder is a bummer, but hopefully someone will make something to fix that.

    Grimlock...is Dinobot with a different head...and knowing what they original Beast Wars Grimlock looked like, this one's paint deco is really kind of lazy of Hasbro. Ah, well... I'm still looking to sell him and Skywarp here since I have no huge interest in them, but at least there's options for those that want more Beast Wars characters. (I'm just wanting the Beast Wars characters that appeared in the show.)

    I like that Grimlock has bronze pants.

    Tricranius showed up for me yesterday. The blast effects look good! They're a little more pastel than I expected, but I think that works out okay? Tricranius, like Derek Zoolander, is just really, really, really, really good looking. The black is extra shiny to give it a really craved obsidian look, and the translucent reds and oranges and yellows pull off the lava look really well. Man, I think I like all the recolors better than the originals for the Fossilizers, and I'll probably just end up putting the main three in combiner mode. Hopefully we get a wingfinger recolor - THybrid thinks they should make it ice themed, and I think that would work great. Kinda bummed we're never gonna see the croc and sabertoothed tiger from that one picture back in the day.
