    Preordered Mixmaster and Scavenger on Amazon. Just as I did with Hightower, more of a fallback in case I don't spot them at retail, if I find them as I did him I'll just cancel.

    This was an awesome surprise to come back to! I'd like to own all of Wave 8, except for the WW2 Hot Rod.

    Delighted to see we're finally getting 2007 Megs! The torso re-use is a bit lame, but doesn't ruin it for me. And SHOCKWAVE!

    No, I’m pretty sure he’s talking about Dickbot the blender guy.

    Do we actually know who designed Scrapper? I'm kind of intrested in charting out who designed each movie character, or at least, a chart for the constructicons. I'd like to think Paul Ozzimo since he did Scrapmetals design, but that one bit of art of him makes me think Steve Jung might have designed him instead.

    Can anyone else comment on Dropkick's transformation? I'm thinking of picking him up at retail, but I want to know if he's difficult to transform before I get him.

    So there’s a sale for ss06 and ss05 bundles for $40. Is it worth it?

    '07 Megatron might be the only figure ever that I wish had more of a backpack.

    Wrong! I'm definitely talking about the college girl sex robot that'll come with a Sam with a fear boner in his underwear figure.

    I’m from Michigan so that’s doable actually. Is he on shelves there? Or did it have to be ordered.

    So the reports of a re-release of wave 5 deluxes is accurate.

    I found these two at my local Walmart today.

    20190823_221426.jpg
    The question is, which order do I open them in?


    Also, without going into super great detail, the new reveals are very exciting. I was initially concerned that Shockwave was tooooo purple but seeing the display case photos he looks decent enough. I don't understand why Shockwave always has to be purple when he wasn't in the movie.

    '07 Megatron looks decent. His legs are a little blocky like DOTM leader but I'm happy for all us movie fans that we finally get to see the 2007 cast completed (Although we are still missing frenzy which is very strange).

    Mixmaster and Scavenger also look pretty decent. I'm not collecting the Constructicons so I can't really say much about them but they look like great additions to the crew.

    It's a very amazing time to be a movie fan!! :bay

    Yeah, I’m pretty sure Steve Jung did as he also did this concept art of a “Volvo Nurse” which greatly resembles Scrapper’s art, mainly the torso and shoulders.
