    Dayton mall Target has all siege deluxe figures.
    Nothing new for SS figures

    Target on Tylersville has the siege stuff.

    Good thing I ordered SS Bonecrusher to hold me over until new SS figures hit shelves.

    Non TF Topic: Does anyone have any opinions of the Canal Winchester area outside Columbus? Currently doing house hunting and never lived on that side before.

    It's always a good chat when we meet up! Jetfire didn't fare so well. =\ A pinned hinge holding his spine together snapped clean off.

    Ouch! Sorry to hear that. From what I can tell it doesn't look repairable? I have TR Overlord chest door I know that will do that one day, not sure when though.

    I would contact Hasbro and see if they can assist with sending you another one and ask about their recycling program as well. I've heard good things about that.

    Good Luck!

    A bit of a late post, but Walmart by the Dayton Mall has a few Siege items, mostly the Battle Masters which I found Stormcloud and Whisper. Nothing else new there and the toy isle looks like Bonecrusher has went through there! Total chaos!!


    Before this, I met with @atomD21 yesterday just to chat about what's new coming down the pike and he picked up SS Shadow Raider! Love that orange Lambo!!!!

    That sucks, man. Like @Skyclaw suggested, I would contact Hasbro CS first. I did so regarding a faulty Siege OP recently, and not only were they concerned about the issue, they also sent me a free replacement figure. Of course, I ordered through HTS, so, they may just suggest returning your figure to Target...can't hurt to try, though. Let us know what they say if you contact them.

    I just took a look at mine, and that exact came hinge is cracked through at one point with some stress marks in two other sections... Seems like that may be more than an isolated issue.

    Definitely email Hasbro CS. They will want to know. The more people inform them, the better the chance of getting it resolved.

    I agree with fschuler, I would be reaching out to Hasbro Customer Service ASAP! I'm sure QC is not aware of this issue. Hopefully they can turn this around before anymore are released stateside

    Mine appears to be ok.

    That area is right where you pull the sections apart in order to make Jetwing Optimus Prime. The instructions are crap. You literally just pull the sections apart. When you look at it, you think that you have to twist it apart because it looks like the two pieces are clipped together. But that is not the case. You just pull them straight out from each other - no twisting is involved at all. I'm not saying you did that though. I have no idea.

    That sucks though. I'm sorry it happened. Getting a replacement is going to be hard for the time being until the markets get more saturated with that wave.

    With SS Jetfire, I believe I'll wait awhile to buy this guy. Or its a mileage can vary situation...

    Depends on which part. Some of it is super high crime rate. 1 guy i know had his apt broken into 3 times in 1 week. Overall not bad, just be picky about the area.

    Any Shadow Raider sightings in the North-of-Cincy region? Decided a little belatedly to pick him up and am not having much luck finding him.

    I saw him the other day at the Walmart in Xenia. He's been there a while.

    Not sure where you live, but a few weeks ago Walmarts in Middletown/Franklin area did have 3 of them. Not sure if they're there now.
