    I don't think it's too late. I was at TRU today and the only deluxe they had was Dreadwind.

    Soooo, my question is, I was watching Amazon for Grimlock back when he first came out and was 49 bucks, but then I luckily caught him when he dropped to 24.99 before he shot back up to 50 bucks.

    Did I miss that same window for Hun-gurrr? Ive been checking him almost everyday since he was put up on Amazon, but I've yet to see him at 35 or less.
    Thanks!

    He is barely at retail, while Grimlock is becoming common. Once retail sees it a bit.more, the Amazon price will drop.

    Despite being a younger fan, I'll go to bat for it and say it at least has the advantage of not having Dark/Blackwing's head sticking up like a sore thumb.

    Does Dreadwind's G1 gun fit in the PotP's hands? I can't tell if it's a 5mm peg or not.

    Its the nostalgia effect in full swing. Many remember G1 as flawless...because most of us were kids and had little in terms of critical opinion.

    Does anyone know when Optimal Optimus comes out?

    Just thinking if I should just order one from Anime Export being shipped August.

    I've been waiting for someone to make that reference! I'd do it myself, but wave 2 hasn't shown up in my area yet.

    Got my Snarl and Sludge from Amazon today, completing Volcanicus.

    Despite not really being that excited for the combiner, more for the Dinobots themselves, he's awesome put together. I wish he had SOME weapon, but he's just as fun as the other combiners.

    I'm hyped for Abominus even more now.

    Haha, that's awesome! He's a cool figure!

    I actually didn't really like the Terrorcons when I was a kid, I thought robots that turned into "monsters" instead of vehicles weren't as cool. But now having rewatched the cartoon and seeing how at home the Horrorcons are in the sort of batshit season 3, I ended up liking them and am really looking forward to having the new versions.

    I impulse bought a PotP Rodimus Prime the other day. I kinda have mixed feelings about the figure. Transformation is a pain in the butt. Arm articulation is off the scale wonky. But the figure looks pretty good. I dunno, it's just nice to have a figure of this character. I decided to play around and came up with this:

    Not good photography or competent editing, but I thought it turned out semi-passable.

    Is deluxe wave 2 still not a thing in anyone else's city? No sign of Sludge or Snarl anywhere, and they're still overpriced everywhere I've seen them online... I'm in no rush to get them, but it seems odd that I haven't casually run into any sign of this wave yet on my usual Target snack runs. Lol

    It's not you. Ive seen Voyagers W2 and W2 legends, but no W2 deluxes anywhere.
    Distribution usually sucks in my area, but since W1 was spotted here in Nov 2017, I figured March would have them.
    Guess not :(

    I think most of the ones that were found were an "early release" granted it seems to be more wide spread that most "early releases". Hasbro's official release for wave 2 is May if I recall correctly.
