    You joke, but I would honestly love that since I don't like how the windshield looks on Siege Sideswipe (and I didn't pick any of them up). If I could get the Diaclone/eHobby cast in Earth Mode, that'd be wonderful.

    And let's be honest, this is probably gonna happen. A Selects 2-pack of ER Tigertrack and Deep Cover for the line after Kingdom, like how Spin-Out and Cordon got released.

    I think I'm ok with Siege though I wouldn't mind doing a comparison photography of the two. I also have nonnefs upgrades for the Siege one so I'm good for the most part.

    That's just great for all you USians.

    Shame about the rest of the planet though.

    No, it's never even existed here.

    The siege mold already looks much like a regular car. And the robot modes are fine as well.

    TIL USA finally annexed Canada :p .

    The Walgreens exclusives have generally been readily available in Canada as well, through retailer EBGames (the Canadian branch of Gamestop).

    I say this as a big fan of the mold, Sideswipe, and the 84-85 characters in general:
    I’m down for earth mode versions, but man...
    I can’t see myself getting anything past Sideswipe and maaaaybe this Red Alert.
    (Well, and Clampdown if they actually do ever get to him.)

    Its seeker level ridiculous, trying to keep up with every release of Lambros.
    Fun!!! But might be time to draw a line...

    Nice, Earth mode AND Cybertronian mode for this character too?!? Under one collection?!?

    Yet again...
    ...best CHUD G1 collection since Universe/ Generations. Best roster ever. This shit even has the ark, Unicron, and BeastWars. No room to bitch, I'm sorry.

    Thanks! Buy one get one free sale at Walgreens at the end of POTP helped me realize that dream.

    I kid you not there must be no less than 20 walgreens in a 15 mile radius of my home. There are a couple of those with museum pieces on the shelf as well! A little haunting when I see posts that new stuff is dropping and I havent missed one yet (knock on wood). I've helped out a few folks who had trouble tracking them down. Perhaps we should start the "I dont have a walgreens / hook me up" thread???

    Thats a whole conversation for another thread but I will just leave it at being a completist is what burned me out on collecting in the past. Once I convinced myself i didnt have to "catch them all" I was much happier and enjoyed collecting a lot more. That being said I still get the "I must have that one" itch. Once I embraced preordering online (from a reliable source, not target / walmart) things got a lot easier. Plus with Pulse getting them now and other retailers getting them a year or so after, they arent looking so hard to finally get.

    One of the Walgreens near me is finally down to two Bluestreaks. Last week there were three that sat for months. I finally bought the ER Hoist, Wheeljack and Ironworks that were keeping him company and bought the lone Refraktor at the closest one to me. Can’t wait for Red Alert to show up.

    Just looking at the August 1 release date and it occurred to me many of us will get Earth mode Red Alert before the new Sideswipe! That's pretty cool!

    That might be his "release date", but most of the time Walgreens Exclusives don't hit saturation or mass availability till late October/early November
