    I wasn't a fan of the comics deco but the dinobots look amazing. 1000010363.jpg

    Welp. I just ordered a fair amount of NA figs. I thought I could resist but I was also sucked in. What are the chances of NA re-issuing the rest of the seekers, including coneheads, in the near future? I was able to pick up the recent re-release of Starscream in toon colors and hoping for a shot of the rest of the team.

    I prefer EX but I got a good deal on Bluestreak and some Seekers and then I got the electroplate Optimus too.
    I hadn't realized that there was so much red on the Magnus EX and while I had naturally preferred it that put me over the top.

    I have G2 Swoop but I'm not real keen on the Dinobots so I'm not in a hurry to finish them yet.

    The big characters seem to get re-issues fairly regularly. Soundwave, Prime, Megatron etc seem to just come out every year or two.

    The main three seekers have had the 2.0’s reissued already and it’ll happen again, but I’m not so sure about the Coneheads. They only had one release and no indication they’ll do a reissue.

    Transparent, gold, and other obscure repaints will probably never get released again. Coneheads might be in that category, I’d pick then up if you see them at Robotoybase or something for a few bucks extra.

    Week since this post and both of them now have tracking! Can't wait for the both of them to show up!


    MAN, these two look absolutely stunning in-hand.

    though not perfect, gotta say NA minibots are cool for their size.

    that being said, if anyone is interested in picking up SG windcharger and/or gobot man-o-war, i'm willing to let them go.

    Newage EX figures are life-affirming treats. I just sit and marvel at them. What a time to be a collector.

    Slicer’s paint fix is a must-do. But did Sunbow WJ really have grey window louvers? Odd choice. I think the “fix” for H49 is buying the EX version, but I’m into racing liveries, not cartoon accuracy!

    Guys I have important and urgent news to share.

    If Huffer ever annoys you long enough, you can have any of your other figures throw him around:

    Galvatron
    Cyclonus
    Arcee
    Seaspray
    Omega Supreme (he took the slow boat from BBB)

    Thanks for this. I was able to pick up the conehead trio for 152 us or 217 canadian. It's about right for three new age seekers, maybe even a few bucks cheaper on top of being hard to find these days. I'm pretty hyped.

    Yeah, they’re still available but getting hard to find now, I think it was a good move!
