    I do feel rather dead inside these days...

    Ultimately though that seems like a rather presumptuous observation...Although now that I think of it, it doesn't help my case that I also want the G2 Sideswipe redeco. :confused:

    Although Walgreens still doesn't have Ratchet up yet, Collection Toys seems to have him up on preorder:

    Transformers Siege WFC-S Ratchet - Deluxe

    Mind you, I don't know anything about them and they themselves may be hoping for Walgreens availability themselves to fulfill orders, but I just happened to see it so thought I'd share.

    With Bluestreak having a myriad of color designs, (i have 3 of the 4 MP versions, but i'm not obsessed or anything...:rolleyes: ), it makes me wonder if there will be a more mass market version of the other designs.

    Refraktor is tempting - but that partsforming and that price make me think 3rd party is the better option.

    They're a scalper site, they even had Unicron listed which as we all know is a Pulse exclusive

    With a $10 markup already. SCALPERS piss me off. The asshole that runs the site probably ordered as many as the system allowed, which makes it harder for people that actually WANT one to get one.

    They also put up preorders for stuff they don't even know they'll get. Back when I was searching for Botbots Bakery Bytes on Google, I found they were listing for preorder a complete set of Botbots Lawn League toys. The full roster of that group has yet to be revealed, much less if they'll even come out.

    Ah so Ratchet is an exclusive in a drug store... sort of makes sense.
    All these USA store exclusives are making things hard for us foreign collectors, though. I really wish Hasbro opened a Hasbropulse site for Europe. Would not know how I would get all these if I did not have my friend Chris in California

    Don't know about that.
    The competition might kill the few European online shops specialized in TF's who go to great lengths in order to offer those exclusives.
    TF Robots will sell Ratchet.

    :lol 

    I'm your opposite. I like dark/black colors fine, but I LOOOOOVE bright colors. G2 Sideswipe? That's cool. G2 Breakdown? F*CK YES.

    You don't know how hard it is not to start arguments over the typical TF fan's love of black colors! :lol 

    Here's another fun observation: Darker colors blend into the background and are less noticeable than bright colors. Could be that the typical TF fan hates to stand out, or is fearful of being noticed. :eek:

    Maybe I missed it, but what is driving Impactor being a Decepticon? The few scenes in IDW where he was having drinks with Megatron?

    Or they could have put Aragon in a boxset with characters instead of special deco versions of characters.
    Can't they make some of the Omnibots from the siege Datsun and Lambo molds?
    They could have paired the Powerdashers with the Omnibots and the Decepticon Targetmasters in a boxset.
