    It almost certainly won't be. Just hope whatever they send you is decent, it's pretty much a coin flip.

    Trust me, I have zero expectations it'll be Fangry. I'm betting it's going to be one of those stupid bone guys or even worse a beast wars character.

    Shippensburg Walmart still has a Cyclonus. The Netflix Voyagers are gone, but they still have a few cases of Kingdom wave 1.
    The Scavenger in the clearance aisle is now $36.

    The Beasts are great. And the Fossilizers aren’t bad, coming from the guy who owns 3 Paleotrexes.

    For me personally I've always hated beast wars, so while they may be good toys/figures, I want no parts of them and I don't understand the point of any of the bone dudes. Again, they may be good/neat figures, they're not transformers to me. Which means I will undoubtedly be getting one of those two options as my compensation figure.

    Feel bad for you if you don’t like them and get them instead, but Beast Wars is my favorite Transformers show, and the new figures are pretty solid.

    I grew up in the hey day of G1 so to me if it's not that or in that universe I have no interest in it. The whole animal thing always annoyed me too. They might be nice but I'll leave them to the 90's peeps.

    I caught the tail end of G1, watched reruns, and loved. First Transformer figure for me was Power Master OP. Beast Wars was also part of my generation, so hence forth, I love them both.

    Anyway, back on track, nothing to report as I am caught up, and can wait for my Pulse orders, so blissfully enjoying not going to any of the stores in my area.

    I also grew up in the heyday of G1 and preferred animal modes in G1 to boring cars and planes.

    Beast Wars is also my favorite, and although G1 is still alright I guess but it could go away forever and I wouldn't care. More brand new stuff please.

    I loved the G1 Dinobots, Insecticons as well the transmetal Beast Wars but the ones that looked like the actual animal always bugged me. lol
    Also A2Z in Hanover has Tracks, Wheeljack and Scorponok on his FB page so they are sure to be jacked up to unreasonable amounts.

    it's always something they have excess inventory of because no one wants them. When I had an issue with CW Vortex, I got sent a CW Blast-off (jet-off). And then I have a small malformed defect on my Sky Lynx such that the mushroom peg for the wing falls out, and their compensatory figure was that green-and-white-striped Siege Megatron.

    It’s good that you’ve tempered your expectations. I once got a defective Slamdance (from the Amazon exclusive “Autobot Alphastrike Counterforce” set) and Hasbro “replaced” it with a SS helicopter Dropkick. The worse possible replacement imaginable IMO.

    That reminds me, Hagerstown Ollie’s had 5+ of these for $24.99 last week.

    For those of you in the Pittsburgh area looking for the commander class Rodimus Prime I just picked one up at the Carnegie - Scott Township Walmart there are two left on the Shelf.

    There's another Rodimus Prime only one at the Washington Walmart

    41F17764-9E94-40A7-971B-5D6DF99817B9.jpeg I just went to my local Ollies, they had a lot of Snapdragons, triplets, Soundwaves, and WW11 Hot Rods, not even including the battle masters. They only had 2 Apefaces, I hid one so I could come back for it later once I got paid.
    Edit: here’s a quick pic of some of the shelves. They really expanded their inventory.

    Are the SS Voyagers all Scavengers? Or did they manage to get some Overloads too?
