    So the GI Joe line just announced a figure that makes me desperately want Megalligator.

    Yeah really. I get why folks like bigger figures so they can have more details, but I already have a couple of the original oversized Prime Arcee's, and don't need another one. Considering that Generations and Legacy is having accurate scaling now, I don't like how Arcee is totally out of scale. I may be cancelling my Arcee pre-order solely because for her being way to big. I am only considering her for my kid to be able to not break as easy as the original Prime toys he has. If a core class comes out later then problem solved and we both can get the size we want, so that is what I hope happens.

    Looks like it's basically the original Skystriker w/ more accessories. even the figures are using the original OG bodies and articulation. This should be a retail release.

    I know your upset, but you don't speak for us all.

    I welcome the updates, especially when they look better. Which they do. :D

    I don’t think the others were confirmed yet.

    Uh…crap, I guess I messed up. I thought the Galvatron/Unicron set was a PulseCon exclusive, so I didn’t look for it until today, at which point I saw that it had already sold out. On the plus side, I got my order in for color change Zartan.

    But it still would have gone up yesterday even if it was a PulseCon exclusive. Yesterday was Transformers, Power Rangers, and Star Wars. That's why Ravage went up yesterday too

    There's a difference between inflation and hyperinflation amigo. This is hyperinflation we are experiencing, not normal inflation.

    I\'ve been trying to put my finger on what it is that bugs me so much about the Arcee and I think I know what it is. Because of the blocky nature of the sculpt it ends up looks like another bot wearing a one of those kids Halloween costumes with the foam muscle suits. That torso is just so bad

    There are plenty of figures through out WfC and SS86 that don’t have wrist rotation: Sideswipe, Mirage, Impactor, Skytread, Soundwave, Astrotrain, Snapdragon, ER Seekers, Runamuk, Huffer, Airrazor, Rhinox, Blackarachnia, Jazz, Blur, Origin Bee, Gnaw, every version of Megatron, and those are just the ones I own and can check. I think you are over reacting.

    Edit: oh plus paleotrex and Sixgun, forgot about them.

    Yeah that's what I meant. I'm not sure why I said Tankor; probably Universe 2.0 still stuck in my head somehow.

    In actual economic terms hyperinflation would be a monthly inflation rate of 50% or more. I know things aren't fantastic, but calling that hyperinflation is very hyperbolic and inaccurate. Not picking on you, just saying.

    Oh okay. So maybe it was a PulseCon exclusive?…I guess I’m all screwed up on that. I knew the Zartan was going on sale, today, so I must have just been thinking of that. You’ll have to excuse me. I’m a dumb individual.

    It only just hit me that Optimus's lower body is mostly Earthrise Optimus's. That explains why it feels a bit off.
