    The Sideswipe and Strongarm sets were rereleased in 2017, showing up at Dollar General. Around here, some DG stores still have them in stock as a current product.

    Didn't know that, I was only going off what the wiki says. Very interesting.

    Bad sign: when the KOs come in, no TF product comes in. SEEMS like discounters switch to KOs for lack of Hasbro product, but Im sure everyone here will point out to TWO times both were on the shelf.

    I hate making the drive just to find awful KOs.

    The Final Faction toys are pretty cool for the price, especially if you have any nostalgia for five-point articulated action figures. Also, the accessory packs are great kitbash fodder. There should be another wave coming by the end of this year with more characters, including another mech and a vehicle. The vehicle will be pretty bare-bones but it's designed to be filled out with accessory packs.

    I haven't been able to get my hands on any Grippo's for years. I'd love to blow my carb allowance on a couple of those boxes. I know you can order them online but the shipping is killer. Cheaper than ordering a box on Amazon, but still prohibitive.

    Saw these at my local Big Lots. A pass for me, but in case anyone was into them I thought I'd mention it.

    Crush a ton of BBQ Grippo’s into the mix the next time you make meatloaf!

    I broke down and ordered online for my birthday a few years ago--I remember I spent like $40 for chips after the shipping. Not my proudest moment.

    Those big head alt-modes were fun for what they were. I want to say those were one of the last few things I remember buying at Toys R Us before they went under.

    I don't recall anyone ever posting in here about seeing the Quint Judge at Ollie's, nice find. Apparently there were a few out there but they didn't reach many stores.

    I found Arcee and Smokescreen at Ollie’s tonight. And two others I didn’t pay attention to, I assume they were all in the same wave? First time I’ve seen this group at Ollie’s.

    Damn! I was hoping to take a break and stop spending too much money at Ollie’s. I always buy more than I expect when I go there.
