    I notice Topspin is just "Topspin," not "Autobot Topspin."

    These Kreon box sets are totally awesome. If you bought the one from last year you definitely need to get this one.

    I find it a little surprising that Astrotrain is the "Designated Driver" - seems to suggest/imply underage drinking since these are supposedly a "high school" class... Then again we see high school drinking on TV all the time, but this is supposed to be a kids toy.

    I think you are taking this a little too seriously.

    I missed out on the 84 set. I will definitely get the 85 set. At least we got a proper Seaspray this time.

    Well maybe. But as someone who didn't drink in high school, and as a parent whom I hope my daughter doesn't drink in high school or hang out with the kids who do and could get into a fatal accident because of some reckless youth... yeah I kinda do take it seriously. I'm all for teaching responsibility and designated drivers and often gladly serve that role, but at the high school level it makes me feel uncomfortable, and it always has. To have it displayed on a kids toy so that my daughter sees it and maybe starts to to think that drinking in high school is OK, just as long as there is a DD - well that makes me even more uncomfortable.

    I didn't mean to derail this thread or get all political or anything. It just irked me a bit, just as it does when every teen-based TV show so blatantly endorses drinking at high school parties. It doesn't need to be like that. I'm just surprised Hasbro put it on there, they could have chosen any number of other, more innocent/kid-friendly "most likely to" class descriptions.

    You do realize that 'designated driver' doesn't necessarily have anything to do with drinking, right?:wink:  It could also (and more then likely) means: the one chosen to do the driving. Nobody in my family drinks, yet I'm usually the one designated to drive everyone to relatives homes, out to dinner, sight seeing in other states. I'm fairly confidant that is more than likely what Hasbro meant.:)

    That was exactly the meaning I took from it considering Astrotrain was always used to shuttle people about (no pun, though fitting, intended). Plus it was common even in school if someone happened to drive a large enough car or van to be the one to drive all their friends around.

    I wish. I'll be trying my luck again with HasbroToyShop. But I've had decent luck with them of late. Plus, since I've already got last year's set, I wouldn't mind paying up to $100 for this one if I had to.

    Last year, it sold out on HTS at first then reappeared later, so I caught it the second time around. I had pretty much given up when that bit of unexpected good fortune emerged. But yeah, I think anything over $100 is pushing it.
