    Between the time I pre-ordered it and the time it showed up at my house, the figure sold out. I wanted to return it, but I figured they wouldn't be able to replace it, so I just kept it. I guess I figured 9 out of 10 tires was better than no tires at all. He looks great with my Classics, but damn that missing tire.

    I really liked how all the jets were done for the 6" Titanium line so I may add 1 more to the collection but after getting the original WW Optimus, I have to say that this repaint of him is not doing the mold any justice whatsoever. That figure was just not made for vibrant or wholly solid colors. The original had that dirty, weathered, battle hardened look and that, I think, is what made the toy that much cooler. I'll pass on the Prime (both of 'em. I don't think powder blue belongs on a fire truck)

    A titaniums coated rant

    1. Get excited by news of titanium release.
    2. Search high and low to find titanium.
    3. Pay for titanium and bring it home.
    4. Bust titanium out off the box and out off dozens of plastic twisties.
    5. Cry when when titanium transformer wobbles like a jelly and falls to pieces.
    6. Place titanium transformer in bubble wrap and think; instead of wasting money on it, I could have paid of a bit of my mortgage, purchased my kid some new shoes, or bought the woman some flowers.

    I bought two hot zone. Two Thrust and one Optimus Prime this afternoon.
    Thanks for The target code TFW2005! $20.99 each.

    If you were only going to get one. I guess get thrust. Hot Zone's blue is'nt quite as imposing. But The fire truck looks like hot Spot.

    Happy to report The Optimus Prime is very shiny. Online thumbnails do not do the glossy paint scheme justice.

    I checked online and the two Target stores near me both have these in stock. I'll make a run as soon as I can, and pick up Thrust for sure, and maybe Hot Spot. Optimus is a pass, however, since I already have the WW version, and see no reason to pick the new version up.

    Yes, be sure to take the DPCI 087-06-0625 to the Store, they will have them in the back stock most likely, keep insisting this product does not have a street date!!

    Go Back with the DPCI tell them there isn't a street date, my store brought them from the back and put them on an endcap. If all else fails they should be in stores by the 21st I was told today.I took home Prime and now he's keeping Prowl company.!!

    If you guys don't find these on the shelves this week, they are set to be put out NEXT week on the same endcap as Superion (most stores have already flexed him to the shellves, but he officially has a home on the endcap that sets next week).

    I happened to run across them at a Target in Orange California. Picked all 3 up but wasn't expecting the 20.99 price tag.

    I may get Thrust just to have all 6 original Seekers in a roughly Deluxe class size (Classics Screamer, Skywarp, & Ramjet, Energon Voyager repaint Dirge, Titanium Thundercracker) even though the Titanium Seeker sculpt isn't my favorite.

    Its NOWHERE near as awful as people claim. Actually the only Titanium I own that isn't at least good is WW Prime. Scourge is great, Rodimus Prime is amazing, Jetfire is decent, Thundercracker isn't bad, and Fallen is great in robot mode.

    Admitted I passed on or missed some of the others. Magnus looked bad (and Fansproject's armor is amazing and almost worth the price!), Cheetor wasn't anything I needed since my favorite form of his is the TM2 one, Fire Convoy is better as the original toy, Soundwave has the diaper crotch (and the G1 rerelease is still king unless I could get the Takara MP3 player for cheap), original Megs looked bad, and sadly I missed out on WW Megs. WW Grimlock and Prowl don't do much and I am happier with my Classics and G1 rereleases for those characters respectively. I kind of wanted Primal Prime for the character since I didn't want to rebuy Optimal Optimus with a new paint job back in the Beast Wars days even though the paint job was SOO PRETTY..

    Plus I am cheap and always feel silly wasting money on toys. If I have a perfect version of the character, why buy another?

    Hot Zone is the only one I'm tempted by. Although, I'd much rather have the cancelled oatfuck exclusive.

    And I dunno why, but I love the name "Hot Zone" much more than "Hot Spot"
