    Just found this at a local Wal-Mart in Southern Indiana that normally has NOTHING! She was found on the rack from a freshly unpacked case with Slug, Swoop, Darkwing, Rippersnapper and Jazz. Start searching guys!

    I'm getting the feeling that if I see this gal I should pick her up...


    While Siege looks like it'll be bringing me back to collecting official Transformers, I kinda wish that they could've waited to release Novastar using the upcoming Siege Chromia mold, as it looks slightly better than this mold does.

    I mentioned this earlier....but I'm concerned the aesthetics might be a smidge off....with all the Cybertronian lines and whatnot.

    She's as good as Moonracer, I think her paint apps are better but that's just my opinion .

    I'm assuming the back pegs in the bottom of car mode still prevent her from rolling properly?

    Yes, sadly. The peg are for their backpacks in bot mode so sanding them down would make the bot mode less stable.

    Honestly, I can get Moonracer to roll and Firestar just... can't. I don't know why, it's the exact same mold but her tabs will not allow clearance.

    I don't get it.

    Found her in Cincinnati today. This walmart stocked wave 3 deluxes last week, sold out in a day and got 2-3 cases of wave 4 today. Saw 4 NovaStar's on the pegs.

    The tabs are for their backpacks to peg into in robot mode, so if you keep the backpack down you don't need them.

    I never use the pegs, but I don't want to modify them so severely. It just bugs me that one use of the mold works fine and the other doesn't.
