    Wartched some reviews and just wasn’t feeling them.
    I may pick up jetfire later, but the feet and shoulders and hollow altmode truck cab put me off of megatron

    Not yet. I've been looking in the South Charlotte and Union County areas. Sometimes when the opportunity arrives I've ventured out a little further, but no signs yet.

    Found and bought studio series Bonecrusher at target northlake, they didn’t have the Optimus or the leaders. Nothing else new there. Walmart at university has one each of seige Magnus and shockwave and megatron.

    Not gonna lie, my first Siege purchases were a little underwhelming. Optimus looks great, but mine has an issue where one of his chest flaps won't quite sit flush in robot mode. I tried trimming some mold flash (thanks, Gunpla, for honing my skills), but it didn't help...it still juts out a little bit, and it's just enough to annoy the hell out of me...can't figure out what's causing it.

    On the plus side - packaging is awesome (what a missed opportunity, though, to push the Transformers TCG by including exclusives cards with each figure...say, Deluxe and up get Character Cards, while all the smaller stuff get Battle Cards (and if you did 3 figures in those classes a wave, all with the same battle card for their class, then buying them all would give you full play sets...). And I dig the shield axe - that was neat. Still definitely getting Jetfire and Omega Supreme, despite having Fans Toys releases for both. Also still really want Shockwave.
