    I just hope Grimmy isn't shortpacked and only shows up in certain markets while K-Mart/Target/TRU complains that TF's don't seel because they stocked 6 bazzilion FOC Bumblebees.

    I'm still pissed that I missed Masterpiece Grimlock.
    But I have to say Animated Grimlock is a pretty DAMN good placeholder.

    Grim bought, Blaster on the fence.

    Most of my TF's for the last year are MISB since I have a kid now and I don't want him to play with the more rare toys.

    Did the same person design Grimmy?

    Don't get me wrong, love him but he reminded me of that mold.

    Wait!

    So hockey pucks with mazes drawn on them are more acceptable these days than cassette tapes....?

    Huh....who knew.

    Though if Rumble was a football, FOC Soundwave could've at least been able to work on his passing yards this off season.

    Wreckers are really starting to warm up to me, since I see they all have some signature weapons and different head sculpts over that Combaticons

    Okay, Ruination is a total win, sure the colors aren't perfect to make them perfect wreckers, and sure, they are being shoehorned into being a combiner, but RUINATION'S HEAD IS THAT OF EMIRATE XAARON!!!! HOW FUCKING COOL IS THAT!!!

    screw grimlock and blaster, they are cool, ruination is the star of the show

    Lemme see if I have this straight...... The Wreckers are repainted, albeit with new heads, Combaticon? The Wreckers are a combiner?!?






    Wow that's unexpected([​IMG])

    Loving them all. Not sure about the Wreckers combining, but, there's no law saying I have to display them combined. :)

    Anyone notice that ruinations head is emirate Xarron? Kinda what I thought/hoped for after the initial disappointment of hasbros whole concept for the wreckers in this line.

    Edit: guard convoy totally caught it.

    I'm confused is Blaster comming with all the disk bots?

    What are those little cases from, surely it will be some kind of set.

    Dear Hasbro
    I love these wreckers figures, but please drop all the orange (except on roadbuster of course) please go comic accurate.
