    Tri-County Target had one SS Ironhide...the real one this time. He's in my trunk now. They didn't have anything else notable.

    Maybe a dumb question. Did Predaking ever go on bargain like Trypticon did at Ollie's? I'm still missing an Onyx Prime. Also, it's funny to be back on the board after so long away. But looks like Siege is starting to show up, so I guess the timing worked out.

    Not yet, he wasnt in many if any actual retailers either. Predaking is also a very recent release too, being released only about 3-4 months ago.

    Keep an eye on Amazon. Black Friday and Christmas shopping is coming, I wouldn't be surprised if we see a discount on him, soon.

    If BBTS can clearance out Trypticon for $70, then Amazon can definitely do a price cut on Predaking.

    Oh I forgot to ask, anyone planning on going to PAX Unplugged in Philly at the end of the month and want to meet up? I'm looking at picking up that Transformers TCG to check it out along with all their other stuff.

    Has anyone possibly seen Dropkick on shelves yet? Trying to decide whether to preorder him from BBTS or not

    I wouldn't preorder him just yet. I imagine we will start seeing him hit shelves in the next week or two.

    I preordered as a backup, just in case we don't see him sooner. A lot of stores are overstocked on waves 1 and 2, some have never seen 3 and that doesn't give me a lot of hope for wave 4. Some of the Walmarts around me don't even carry the SS Deluxes anymore.

    For those looking for SS 15 Bumblebee, good luck on that. Finally caught with the Hasbro Rep at work. As of now, it is a low run figure. On-Line might be your only crack at it. Lucky for me I got one in MISB at BBTS.

    Been a long time guys. I’m trying to decide if I want to get the PotP Dino’s or Terrocons. Can’t do both. Recommendations?

    That's a tough choice, but I'd probably go with the Terrorcons. The dinobots are great, but the Terrorcons are fantastic! Abominus looks amazing as well!

    In terms of the figures themselves and their combined form the Terrorcons are the better group imo. The Dinobots were cool but Abominus really won my heart
