    I bought the mold without ugly lightning bolts in 2007, and I lost interest in it in about a month. I wasn't about to buy it again. Let some kid or another fan have it, I decided.

    IMO the only "decent" Ironhide was the 1st release for the first movie. Even that one is suspect. I know I'm not the only one keeping his fingers crossed for HA Ironhide.

    I just ordered a set of those blind-packed Kabaya Convoys - anybody want my duplicates? I only want one of each. I'll sell the extras for $6 a piece to anybody here that can pick them up.

    I'd love one of each too! :) 

    So as for Recon Ironhide, I own the original movie 1 version, and I like Recon WAYYYYY better. While I will agree that the lightning bolts are a bit much, his paint job in bot mode is KILLER! (I keep my TFs displayed it bot mode) Not only that, but I absolutely LOVE the weapons that came with this model. There's just something really badass about the Autobot's weapons master having some real, gritty, brutal lookin' weapons (Hellooooo?! Giant Rambo dagger, anyone?! ("That's not a knoife. Now THIS is a knoife!" LOL! If you don't know that line, first of all, shame on you. Secondly, use your PC and go watch Crocodile Dundee!)) instead of always having pulse cannon-this and particle beam-that. So to sum it up. If you are a bot mode displayer, and you want some cool, unique weaponry, then Recon Ironhide IS the way to go!

    OK, on to the last thing I wanted to mention. I'm assuming that we now live in a post-Bludgeon crazied world. With that said, let's start pooling our efforts to the future. I just spotted this morsel of info...

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...n-transformers-sightings-642.html#post4477582

    If you wanna save time and not look, It's a post in the WI sighting board stating that HA Barricade has found his way there! I don't know bout yallz, but your ol' pal Martybear wants me a new HA figure! If ya spot him, you know what to do, and you know I'm good for it!

    In addition, I don't know if anyone has seen any other new figs, but I'd love the new Legends Wave (Jolt, Arcee, etc.), any new Animated, and any new ROTF. I'll be lookin for you all too. I just thought we could start clearing up the Bludgeon spooge (<in a Bevis and Butthead fashion> "Huh Huh Huh. He said spooge. HEE HEE YEAH! SPOOGE! YEAH!! HEE HEE!! KICK HIM IN THE BALLS!!!") and start collectively focusing on the future. With that said, of course, if you still need Bludgeon, I'll still be looking for ya too. :)

    Right on. I just left Recon Ironhide for someone who will appreciate him more than I would. In fact, Bludgeon and TRU Hoist were the only ROTF toys I wanted. The old school is really where my primary interest lies these days. :) 

    Of course, I'll continue to browse the toy aisles and report the new stuff.

    Is anyone interested in a copy of the new Army of Two game for the PS3? I picked up a copy today along with Dark Void so I could get the $60 gift card TRU was offering if you bought two of four games from a list and are a Rewards R Us member. I don't really want it since I still have the first one on my shelf that has yet to be played. I figured I'd see if any one local would like it before trying to move it. $60, still in the shrinkwrap, let me know.

    Got the Kabaya today, here's the skinny - I've got one complete set extra that's Foster's since he spoke up first for one, but I don't have two Primes for Mister Gone, I have a classics and a Star Saber left.

    If Mister Gone wants them they're his, otherwise they're up for grabs. I'd prefer to let them go together to keep things simple.

    I've been out of the loop remodeling my ugly-ass bathroom for about 5 days. I did get a chance to swing by the Oakdale Target yesterday and they had jack-squat for anything even remotely new.

    Also, a non-TF collecting friend mentioned that the Apple Valley Target had the exclusives on clearance as of Sunday, but only at the 30% off mark.

    Were you charging $5? I'm not sure I saw it, don't recall.
